Summer motoring tips from Rhiwbina’s 5 star Garden Village Garage


It’s summer in Rhiwbina and for many of us that means summer holidays, trips to the airport, and days out! If you’re making plans for the summer then don’t forget to prioritise your transport; having breakdown cover is great but we want to ensure you don’t break down in the first place!

No one wants to be stuck on the hard shoulder in a blistering heatwave, and we don’t want to be the cause of your engine issues. That’s why at the Garden Village Garage we employ the best and most experienced mechanics in the city and fill our workshop with the best equipment. We have recently invested in the most up to date diagnostic tools in today’s market to ensure all your motoring needs are met!

Chris, our lead mechanic is an expert in all makes and models, especially Jaguars. His years of experience have put him among the best technical mechanics in the motoring trade. Should you suffer from any motoring woes during this period of hot weather, we’re on hand to diagnose and repair, while aiming to get your vehicle back to you as quickly as possible. Today Chris has some tips for you to ensure a safe and uneventful summer of motoring for you!


Maintenance is key!

With the cost of living crisis crunching at our bank balances, it can be easy let vehicle maintenance slip, but this is false economy. Remember your summer service, and if you find any issues with your vehicle call us right away before the problem grows!

Keeping things Cool!

Don’t forget fluids! While you might remember to drink more yourself, and you’re always ensuring the kids have plenty to drink, your car may also be a little more thirsty than usual. Make sure you regularly check your oil and coolant, particularly in warmer weather to stop problems growing in the first place.

Use your AirCon!

It can be tempting to switch off the air conditioning given the price of fuel, but modern systems are much more fuel efficient than they used to be and fuel economy really is negligible. Running the aircon keeps the system in tip-top shape, and keeps you cool and calm on the road. If your air conditioning system isn’t up to scratch, we offer a re-gassing service in our workshop!

We hope these handy tips help you keep motoring this summer, and if you do need any assistance, whether it’s a breakdown or a service, call The Garden Village Garage today and we’ll book you in with our experienced mechanics using our new state of the art technology.
