Border Cars - Service

Service, Repairs, & MOT

Border Cars are authorised repairers and MOT Testing for Chrysler, Fiat, Ford, Jeep, Kia, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Skoda and Suzuki.  We can also service, MOT and repair all makes of used cars and light commercial vehicles.

It is important to take care of your vehicle with regular servicing and maintenance, and occasional wear and tear repairs. This makes sure it stays safe and reliable, and when you come to trade it in, its resale value is protected. 

Our technicians and service advisors will look after your service and repair requirements, air-conditioning checks and service and diagnostic advice, and as all workshops are authorised MOT testing stations, they can attend to your annual MOT when it falls due. 

At Border Cars:

  • We will ensure ongoing contact by telephone while we look after your vehicle, as may be required.
  • A full explanation of work done will always be provided.

  • No un-necessary or "selling up" work will be carried out.

New EU Tyre Label Rules

As of November 1st 2012 it is a legal requirement for franchised dealers to display labels on replacement tyres which they sell.  It is also a legal requirement that service advisors are trained and are able to explain the information on the labels to customers.  The labels are put onto the tyres and give information regarding fuel efficiency (rolling resistance) and safety (wet grip).  The information will be displayed using a 7 grade ranking scale which will have coloured bands.

According to the Tyre Industry Federation, A-grade tyres at the top of the ranks can out-perform the lowest ranked G-grade tyre by 30% for safety and 7.5% for fuel efficiency. In layman's terms this could mean a vehicle stopping 3-4 car lengths shorter from a travelling speed of 50mph and could give an average saving on fuel costs of around £100. 

This information helps dealers explain the costs involved when choosing between different tyres, allowing customers to choose the correct tyres for their vehicle.
