    I used Fixter for an MOT and it was hassle-free. The man picked the car up at the time requested and dropped it off 2 hours later with the MOT certificate left on the passenger seat. I would use again, though would be good to get a bit more feedback on what work had been carried out as when the ca...

    I kept worrying how they can do this so cheaply and whether they will return the car in the first place. I was reassured by the reviews and found the service incredibly hassle free and convenient. I do hope the service was done properly as that is something that is difficult to detect.

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 buzzing noise, which indicates not enough electricity is getting to the starter motor.

Mazda

The Mazda Motor Corporation is a Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer, initially established in 1920 as a toolmaker but went on to start building cars in the 1930s.

How popular is Mazda in the United Kingdom?

An innovative engineering based company, Mazda has over half a million vehicles on the roads in the UK. Their popularity has made a steady climb over the past 10 years; it’s no real surprise with their provision of smartly designed vehicles and unique philosophy.

Luxurious yet affordable motoring

Mazda philosophy: Jinba Ittai—drive together

Mazda professes to create each car around its driver—engineering them to move their drivers both literally and emotionally. They call this ‘Jinba Ittai’, and this inspiration comes from Japanese tradition, a natural connection like that between a horse and rider symbolising a ‘oneness’, where the car is merely an extension of the driver.

Zoom-Zoom

Possibly Mazda’s most popular marketing slogan, established in 2000 and trickle fed through many further campaigns to help them become the well-recognised household brand they are today.

It’s fair to say that Mazda likes to do things a little differently. They make strong, bold choices, and aren’t afraid to put their efficient larger engines in their cars where other marques are working on smaller, on-trend turbocharged options.

Mazda: easy on your pocket—fun on the roads

The current UK range includes models to include tourers, SUVs and the ever-popular MX-5 convertible. Despite often seemingly going against the grain of motoring trends, Mazda makes cars that are affordable to buy, economical to run and great fun to drive.

Mazda’s reliability and reputation

Mazda ranked a respectable joint 11th out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. Many of the top 10 positions were taken by Japanese and Asian manufacturers, so Mazda’s 94.6% efficiency rating, while favourable, wasn’t quite as high as some of their neighbouring competition.
