Be prepared

When I broke down it didn't look nearly as pretty as this

A few winters ago, my car developed an electrical fault, where it lit up like a Christmas tree when it got wet. I had it recovered and fixed, but I still remember that night clearly. I was just about to leave work for a fairly long commute, and it wouldn’t start. Stranded in the snow […]


Free winter health checks

If you're like us, this is pretty much what you see every time you get in the car right now.

Winter is Coming…

It’s that time of year again. The days are grey, the nights cold, the papers are doom-mongering, and the weather defies all prediction. It can only be the British winter.

Millennials seeking expert help

More younger drivers than ever are leaving work on their car in the hands of the experts rather than tackling problem themselves. A recent survey found 63% of Millennials have never tried to fix, repair or modify a car they have bought. This trend has been mirrored here at David Dexter’s with a steady increase […]
