Minor Repairs, Ford Mondeo

The garage wasn't able to find the issue but never the less gave a brilliant service. Collected and dropped off my car and was sensitive to the fact I couldn't be without the car, i'm a single parent with 3 small children

Diesel Engine Faults, Volvo S80

I had a positive experience when I used DB's Service and Tuning. The service I received from Desio and his team was second to none, the customer care was excellent, the price was reasonable and my car was repaired quickly. If you are looking for an honest, friendly and helpful mechanic, Desio's your man.

Gearbox Repairs, Volkswagen Golf

I recently had issues with my vehicle initially thinking that the gearbox required repair and replacement. I took my car to DB’s Service and Tuning and was quoted an initial estimate for repair. The gentlemen Decio, identified the cause of the problem to be a broken right hand side engine mount, resulting in the engine falling on one side affecting the ability to engage reverse gear. I was promptly provided with a new estimate for new parts and labour receiving a very descriptive email inclusive of pictures of the engine. The parts quoted were VW products, so I searched for alternatives on Euro Car Parts website in an attempt to lower the price. I was unsuccessful in finding any alternatives which reassured me that the price of the quite was not inflated. My vehicle was repaired and was ready for collection the next day. I could have had the car back the same day but I caused a slight delay in the commencement of the works when researching the option of alternative parts. I was very satisfied with the service provided, Decio was very thorough when explaining the issues affecting the vehicle. Decio advised that he worked for VW for a number of years and he took the time to advise me on other minor issues that required attention. I would highly recommend DB’s for vehicle repair, I shall certainly be taking my vehicle for a MOT and service in October 14.
