    First time using and would use again. Collected car at agreed time. Was returned slightly later, but didn’t really affect me much.

    Great value, prompt pick-up, MOT paperwork delivered. Only problem was car was late being returned due to traffic hold-ups, and we weren't warned of this in advance.

What does a starter motor do?

The starter motor is the component responsible for turning over or ‘cranking’ the engine to start the car. Without a functioning starter motor, it’s not possible to start a car by using the ignition alone. The starter motor is a key component of a smooth running vehicle. When you press the ignition to start the vehicle a charge is taken from the battery and used to start the engine.

How often should you replace your starter motor?

Your starter motor is working every time to use the ignition to start the vehicle. This can be even more depending on if you have start-stop technology in your car and the configuration of that system. This is because coolant constantly cycles through to prevent overheating, which means you need to be careful with the signs of a malfunctioning radiator as it is an essential part of your cooling system. This being said, a damaged or leaking car radiator should be replaced immediately.

What happens when we do a starter motor replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will: Inspect the starter motor and the parts around it for any potential issues. Perform a diagnostic test on the starter motor system. Replace the starter motor (if necessary) Advise you if any other parts need to be replaced as well.

When trying to start the car you hear a grinding or whirring noise this may signify issues with your starter motor. When trying to start the car you hear a buzzing noise, which indicates not enough electricity is getting to the starter motor.

DS

DS is the premium automobile marque of the Groupe PSA. First announced in 2009 by Citroën as its premium sub-brand; it was suggested to be an abbreviation of different spirit or distinctive series. However, in French, the name is considered a play on words, as the translation of déesse becomes goddess in English.

How popular is DS in the United Kingdom?

As a newcomer to the UK market in its own right, there were around 35k DS cars on the roads in the UK by the end of 2018. Whether those figures will continue to rise at the same rate shown since their introduction in 2015, only time will tell.

Looking to provide a standalone marque to initially compete with brands such as Volkswagen and Audi, PSA decided that neither Citroën nor Peugeot would be able to carry the brand strength that would be able to make a serious threat in the market with an elevated price-point at the level of quality and luxury they set out to achieve.

DS: Establishing a new range of upmarket models

To compete with the likes of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, DS introduced a range of hatchbacks, saloons and SUVs but it’s undoubtedly their supermini city car that is proving the most popular.

The DS3, sold as a 3-door hatchback or a convertible, is available in countless customisation options and also as the subcompact luxury crossover SUV DS3 Crossback. The DS3 was voted Car of the Year by Top Gear Magazine, and first place supermini four times in a row in the JD Power Satisfaction UK Survey.

DS: Don’t be fooled into thinking they’re just a one trick pony

At the other end of the range you’ll find the DS7 Crossback. Here’s a large SUV designed to compete directly with the Audi Q5, the BMW X3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC; that’s quite a jump for a car that’s built by Citroën.

The models that you’ll find between the DS3 and the DS7 are created with the same style for the market in mind. The DS4, a mixture of hatchback and SUV, and the DS5, a bigger hatchback priced and pitched against the Audi A4, the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes C-Class saloons.

DS’s reliability and reputation

DS didn’t feature in the 30 car brands of the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018, however, Citroën came in at 25th place so it stands to reason that their premium vehicles should score higher. Not necessarily so. Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover were propping up the wrong end of the survey, and given that the most reliable brands are all Asian manufacturers (with Suzuki, Lexus, Toyota, Kia and Mitsubishi taking the top spots) perhaps it’s simply a case of the rest of the world are having to play catch-up?
