Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

Hyundai

The Hyundai Motor Company (or Hyundai Motors) is a South Korean multination automotive manufacturer, founded in 1967, with current divisions that include Kia Motors and Genesis Motor.

Since arriving in the UK market, Hyundai has made a steady and consistent rise in sales, to the point where there are now over 850k of their cars on our roads today.

Well-priced luxury cars with a fantastic warranty

Predominantly producing an extensive range of smart looking hatchback cars of quality and price to compete with Ford, Vauxhall and Volkswagen, perhaps their rising sales figures can be partly put down to holding one of the best warranties for a new car in the business.

Their 5-year, unlimited-mileage warranty offers the peace of mind any new car owner would be thrilled to receive, given that most marques only offer 3 years with around 60k miles of cover.

Hyundai doesn’t solely offer a range of varying hatchback models; the current full line-up features tourers, coupes and of course, as the leading trend in today’s market, a selection of SUV models of varying sizes, trims and price tags.

Hyundai electric hybrid technology

Hyundai, as have most marques during the growth of new fuel technologies, has shown a strong entry into all electric and hybrid motoring. The brand’s Ioniq Hybrid model proved more efficient than Toyota’s Prius, the world’s first mainstream and possibly the most popular hybrid car on the road today.

Motorsport: Hyundai’s subcompact rally car

Entering motorsport in the late 1990s, Hyundai unveiled its Accent WRC (world rally car) to compete in the World Rally Championship. It achieved its first top-10 result in the 2000 Rally Argentina and continued to finish well throughout the season, but not quite well enough to compete with the top 3 or 4 teams.

In 2014, Hyundai made a return to world rallying after a 10-year absence, with the introduction of their i20 WRC; a rally car based on the i20 subcompact and was unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

How does car steering work?

The steering system of your car includes everything from the steering wheel to the steering shaft, rack and gearbox, all the way to the linkage which connects to the wheels themselves. All these components are used to control the direction of a vehicle’s motion.

Almost all steering systems in modern cars contain a hydraulic booster, which supplies most of the necessary force when the driver turns the wheel. This is often called power assisted steering.

How do I know if my steering system needs repairing?

Some common signs that your steering may need repairing are:

  • Very difficult to turn the steering wheel

  • Uneven or premature tyre wear

  • Power steering fluid pump is making a whining noise

  • Power steering fluid looks black or brown

  • Car pulls to one side when driving or your steering seems to be “wandering”

When do you need to replace your power steering fluid?

The rule of thumb suggests that you should change your power steering fluid anywhere between 30,000 and 100,000 miles of driving. The main reason to replace your power steering fluid is that it has become contaminated or dirty. Further tell-tale signs that you need to take care of a flush are if you're having problems steering, the fluid has turned black or a dirty brown colour (it's generally red when it's new), it smells like it's burning, or you hear squealing noises as you turn the steering wheel.

##Is it OK to drive with low power steering fluid?

Without the correct amount of power steering fluid, the handling of your car will be affected. It can be difficult to control at low speeds and be dangerous for you and your passengers. We'd recommend topping up low levels as soon as possible. If you drive without power steering fluid for extended periods, you can damage the pump, which would deliver a far costlier repair or replacement than a simple top-up.

##Is it necessary to flush power steering fluid?

It's not always necessary to flush the power steering fluid, but we'd suggest it's a best practice you should engage in—recommended by almost all good mechanics. Over time, build-up can occur in the power steering fluid, which not only makes it harder to turn your steering but can also deliver increased wear to your steering pump, causing damage that could easily be avoided.

How long does it take for power steering fluid to circulate?

If you're giving your steering system a full flush, you can expect it to take 5 minutes of turning the steering from wheel hard left to hard right to get the power steering fluid into the system properly. Keep an eye out for air bubbles releasing from the reservoir. Once everything feels normal again, take the car out for a drive. Check the fluid level on your return and over the next few days, and top it up to the full level if it drops at all.
