An electric car is easier and more economical to maintain than a fuel-powered car.
For example, the oil in a fuel-powered car must be changed regularly to ensure correct lubrication and cooling of the engine block.
Oil changes are a thing of the past with a Renault Z.E. as an electric motor does not need lubricating.
The same goes for your brake pads, disks and drums, which have a significantly longer life expectancy thanks to regenerative braking.
Our state-of-the-art facilities in Chelmsford, Colchester and St. Albans are well-equipped to complete a wide range of essential services.
You can request a date and time that is most convenient and we will do what we can to honor it.
You can make an online booking via the online booking tab or if you prefer, you can also arrange a service or repairs by phone during business hours.
Benefits of a Renault service:
Brakes are key to your driving safety. Glyn Hopkin offer great value for money, peace of mind and reassurance – for your braking safety. To avoid unexpected brake failure, replacing your brake pads before they completely wear to the metal brake pad backing extends the life of your brake disc.
Sometimes, both pads and discs will need changing and replacing at the same time though generally discs will outlast the life expectancy of pads. Front brake discs will eventually get too thin, which could result in overheating and losing efficiency.
Vehicle air conditioning systems can lose refrigerant gas over time, especially if they aren't used regularly, which means that they may not work as well as they should.
This is why it is recommend your air con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it’s probably due an air con recharge.
Does your air conditioning need a re-gas?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then your air conditioning may need an air conditioning re-gas.
The MOT will ensure your vehicle complies with key safety and environmental requirements.
The first test is required once a car is 3 years old.
After that, it will need an MOT every 12 months.
