When your car develops a problem, how do you know whether it's serious or not?  In some cases, the cure may be as simple as topping up the tyre pressures, whereas in other cases, it may be dangerous to continue driving.  The chart below aims to help you decide whether your car needs expert garage services such as those provided by Thornes Lane Garage.

Getting the problem cured promptly will often stop further problems developing .  For example, a weak light from the headlamps may be a warning that the battery needs replacing.  Getting a new battery promptly will ensure that you avoid the costly and inconvenient problem of not being able to start the car when you need it.

Please note that the charts identify typical causes, not every cause, and the cause may be different from those listed.
