HiQ Abingdon

Abingdon
5.0 / 5

When it comes to servicing your car, HiQ Abingdon can offer you the premium service you'd expect from a main dealer - without the premium price tag. This means you can reduce your servicing costs without compromising your warranty. Our Warranty Approved Servicing is carried out by highly trained technicians using parts and lubricants that match those specified as Original Equipment. This ensures compliance with the Manufacturers Warranty, so the only difference you'll notice is in your wallet.

As well as great value for money, you can expect a thorough and fair service. At HiQ Abingdon we use a traffic light system in our servicing, which outlines what work needs doing, and how urgently it needs to be done. When a green light is ticked on your servicing report, the job has been auctioned and the problem is visually ok. If the amber light it ticked, we suggest that you take action when you can. If the red light is ticked the problem requires urgent action and we would highly recommend that the problem is rectified as soon as possible. An MOT test checks that vehicles meet the road safety and environmental standards required by law. All cars over 3 years old require an MOT test every 12 months. Without a current MOT certificate, you will be unable to drive your vehicle lawfully or renew your road fund license. You can have an MOT test completed up to one month before the expiry of your current MOT without affecting your annual expiry date. You can find the earliest date to MOT your vehicle on the front of your last pass certificate. And don't forget to bring your Vehicle Registration Document (V5) with you on the day of the test.

As tyre experts, we think it's only right to share our in-depth experience with our customers. That's why we've collected a few tyre tips for you. By following the advice below, you'll find that your tyres will go much further, saving you time and money along the way. Make sure your tyres are always at the correct pressure - refer to your car handbook for more information. Check your tyres regularly for any obvious signs of under-inflation, wear, cuts and bulges in the sidewalls, plus remove any stones or other foreign objects trapped in the tread grooves. Have the steering alignment checked if front tyres show signs of excessive or uneven wear. Have front wheels and tyres balanced if there are signs of vibration, wheel wobble or patchy tyre wear. Drive with consideration for your tyres by avoiding harsh braking, fierce acceleration and fast cornering. If you're in doubt about your tyres, don't worry. Just call in to see us and ask for your free, no-obligation tyre check.

Frequently asked questions
+

What is a car alternator?

The car's alternator performs a simple, but vital job: to keep your car's battery charged. The battery is responsible for starting the car, spark plugs, lights, electrics, and sometimes power steering - quite a job - so it's essential that it's topped up - and that's what the alternator does.
+

What are common problems with an alternator?

The alternator acts like a small generator: the engine spins it, and the alternator turns that spinning motion into electricity.The most common problems are worn brushes (the component that maintains constant electrical contact with the spinning alternator) and a failing voltage regulator (which ensures that the charge is sent to the battery at the correct voltage.)
+

What are the common symptoms of alternator problems?

Common signs of car alternator problems include the 'charge' or battery lights flashing on the dashboard, flickering or dimming headlights and interior lights and a growling or whining noise under the bonnet.
+

What is the average alternator repair cost?

An alternator can be rebuilt as opposed to replaced, however in truth the difference in cost is often quite small. Either way the most common repair cost is around £150-200.
+

How to test an alternator for problems

A simple way to test an alternator for problems is to do what's known as the headlight test. Park your car with the headlights on or run it in neutral, then rev the engine. If the headlights dim you could well have an alternator problem. A better test is to take your car to a garage, where a car alternator can be tested using a multimeter tool.
+

What happens if my alternator breaks?

If your alternator fails, your car battery won't charge and, very soon, will have insufficient charge to start the car.

Atrernator Repair Prices

Although the alternator is a relatively simple Mazda part, it plays a critical role in your vehicle’s operation, so it’s essential any alternator problems are diagnosed correctly and fixed.

Here are some of the most common signs that your Mazda alternator is on the blink:

  • The alternator warning light will be on – in most cases this is shaped like a battery but some cars will show ‘ALT’ or ‘GEN’
  • You may experience extremely bright or dimming headlights, or a speedometer that stops working
  • Drivers sometimes complain of a growling or whining noise before the alternator gives out
  • You may experience a smell of hot wires or burning rubber

The average Mazda alternator repair cost is between £200 and £300, depending on the model of your Mazda, so it’s important you make sure you find the best deal. And that’s where we can help.

Here’s how it works:

  • Simply enter your car registration number
  • Give us some details about your vehicle and the kind of repair work you require
  • We’ll send you a great selection of quotes from mechanics in your area

We use our network of 14,197 mechanics and garages across the UK to find you the best deal. You can then compare the quotes, read reviews from previous customers and book your alternator repair online.
