Car Servicing, Repairs and MOT Testing in Oxford
We provide services from interim for the high mileage car user to a full service that covers all areas of essential maintenance so that you can enjoy trouble free motoring and reduce the chance of hidden costs further down the road.
Inside the engine or inside the cabin, we’re here to help you solve your car problems.
When it comes to general repairs and faults, we strongly suggest that customers explain the problem in as much detail as you can. If you can, include when the problem occurs, for example only when the engine is cold, or after the vehicle has been left standing, or when driving on certain road conditions then this will help with the diagnosis of the faults.
We have the ability to identify and fix all problems associated with engine diagnostics. Effective fault diagnostics enables us to quickly identify any problem, and ensures the correct part is ordered first time.
Our fully licensed MOT test lane uses the latest equipment giving us the ability to test all makes and models of petrol and diesel cars and LCVs. This includes the equipment to comply with the 2009 diesel emissions regulation.
All UK cars three years old and over require a valid MOT certificate by law. An MOT is a standardised annual test, set by the Vehicle Inspectorate, to make sure your vehicle meets all the legal requirements for safe road use.
All Unipart Car Care Centres with fully licensed MOT test lanes can carry out MOTs on all makes and models.
An MOT is also the opportunity to check and advise you of any work or replacements that may require attention in the near future. This ensures you stay road safe and can plan for the future repairs, replacements and servicing requirements of your vehicle
Tyres & Wheel Balancing
We have access to a huge selection of tyres to meet your needs and budget!
If your wheels are not balanced correctly you may experience vibrations in the steering wheel, seat or floorboards. You may also suffer unnecessary and inconsistent tyre wear.
An under-performing exhaust system can result in reduced efficiency causing higher fuel bills and can lead to other problems for your car. Come in for a check – we can test, repair or replace car exhausts.
Not only are these parts essential to the safety of your driving if they start to fail not only can they impair the car’s performance but they may lead to you failing your MOT.
85% of all new vehicles now come with air conditioning as standard. As with most mechanical parts these systems need regular checks and servicing. We offer a complete range of services to ensure your system is running cleanly and safely. These range from anti bacterial clean to a full leak test and repair.
Air conditioning systems don’t just remove heat from the air entering your vehicle, it also removes moisture.
When there’s a lot of moisture in the air it can make the conditions uncomfortable and cause visability issues when window mist up.
When conditions are wetter with snow and rain, moisture is transfered into the cabin by its occupants. when the heater is used this will evaporate the moisture causing the windows to steam up.
Using the air conditioning will reduce or eliminate this so it is important that you have this maintained.
We have a range of batteries in stock. Ask one of the team for advice as to which type would best suit your needs.
During winter months a vehicles electrical system is under higher load due to more functions, ie; heater blower / air-con, heated rear screen, wiper motor, radio, lights etc.
Once the power of all these functions are added together there will be a lot of demand on the battery and alternator.
Over time if the performance of the battery or alternator degrades, the extra demand will result in insufficient charge to start the vehicle.
