Servicing & Fault repairs

We carry out servicing as per manufacturers schedules or customer instructions. Lower mileage vehicles may not need as much attention as higher mileage vehicles. But some items will need to be inspected or changed on a yearly basis whatever the mileage.

We can also include an M.O.T at a discounted rate when a car is booked in for a service at the same time. This can help, as it means your car only has to visit the garage once.

Modern cars have all sort of electronic items fitted (ECU’s, Lambda Sensors, etc) and diagnostics has become an important part of the modern car especially when faults develop. We have some of the latest diagnostic equipment to help find any faults. With this equipment we can quickly trace any problem you may have with your car from Engine Management to Air Bags.
