Under the Hood

Under the hood

In between all of our fine work, I had a lovely chat with one of technicians while waiting for my coffee to brew. After the usual bad jokes and pleasantries, he told me about one of the jobs he’d worked on recently. I won’t go into detail, but, in short, a customer had mistakenly refilled […]

Why Should I get a Service Plan?

One of our technicians in action

So many of us have made New Year’s Resolutions not so long ago – lose weight, take up a new hobby, be more social, or to get our finances in order – and, if you’re anything like me, it’s already proving difficult. Here at David Dexters, we might not be able to help you go […]

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.

When the rubber hits the road

Lots of tyres in stock!

Some would argue tyres are the most important factor in your car’s safety – after all they’re the only part that’s in contact with the road. I can think of some other things that are pretty vital, but I take their point – the wrong tyres can really affect how safe you are. So, what […]

How cool are you?

Another lovely day down at the garage

After a wet spring, summer is finally here! With it have arrived the usual green fields, blue skies, and balmy afternoons. Now, most years this spurs me to think mostly of beer gardens, barbeques, and long hikes, but, this year, something else has come to my attention. My air conditioning is rubbish. It takes an […]

We’ve tailored our stock

Some of our fabulous stock

Recently this has included rolling out our new warranties and service plans, but that’s not all that we’ve got up our sleeves. Want the short version? We’ve changed the line up of what cars are out on our […]

Our New Warranties and Service Plans

War(ranty) and Peace (Of Mind) Cars are complicated machines, and machines can go wrong. We’ve all had that experience, whether it’s a vehicle not starting, a light coming on while driving, or something coming up during an MOT. Wouldn’t it be nice though if all that was just sorted? All of our cars are sold […]

Time to fit your Winter tyres?

  The temperature has been dropping and it seems an opportune moment to mention the benefits of having winter tyres fitted on your car. It may be something you have delayed thinking about this year with the unseasonably warmer temperatures taking us well into November but with the frost and ice appearing you may be interested […]
