Quick to arrange a date to get my car fixed. They called me with a few additional things which might be worth doing. Car was ready same day.
My vehicle had been parked up for over 3 months and desperately some love & attention to get it road worthy. Ross arrived punctually & explained he was going to undertake all the jobs as per my instructions together with a full inspection and road test. New battery was fitted and report provided on all the faults together with recommendations for items which may need further attention at a later date. All in all a great job was done and very professional service from start to finish. Would certainly recommend to anyone requiring a home service/ assistance.
Competent and efficient workshop, all reasonably priced and pleasant to deal with. 100% Recommended
I would definitely recommend Eagle Autos. I dealt with Roberto who clearly explained the issue my car was diagnosed with. I felt they are an honest and friendly bunch of mechanics. I also appreciated the communication line between myself and the garage, informing me on the progress of the job.
Very good service, clear communication, did the job very quickly and low cost. Would highly recommend.
We arrived at 08.30 with our Ford c-max for a new clutch we were told it would be ready for 5pm very reasonable price as per quote and a good job done car ready on time will use this garage again thanks guys
I was very pleased with this garage and would certainly recommend and use them again. I found them to be honest and competitively priced. They were also polite, friendly and not in the least pushy. Two small problems occurred and not only were these resolved extremely promptly but l also received some money off my bill. I left them thinking l would trust them completely.
Fast response and work carried out to a good standard. Initial issue was found to be wrong and full work completed. Reasonably priced in comparison to others looked at. Job well done.
Had to have bodywork repair & indicator light replaced. Sam was very helpful and on collecting my car 3days after, I was very impressed., not only with the repair but my car was polished & hoovered inside as well as washed outside, tyres were also cleaned & polushed. They even put a car fresh on my rear view mirror. They weren't the cheapest quote as the cheapest was a distance away & had no reviews re. bodywork whereas Kingston Motors were near to me & had 2 positive reviews re. bodywork. Was worth paying the difference of £30. I would use them again. You just need to call them, they don't have a Receptionist so I wouldn't depend on them getting in touch.... Not a problem, after all they're busy.
DO NOT USE THIS COWBOY! I asked for my exhaust to be repaired and he patched it up with a COKE CAN!! Then became abusive when I asked him to fix it properly. If I could leave 0 stars I would. I will be reporting this guy to trading standards.
Helpful at providing advice!
Got car MOT'd and serviced by Sloane Services. It was more expensive than the online quote, but that was because it needed two new shocks and two tyres, and fitting the shocks was a lot more labour. So it was good value, and it was done to time and they were a pleasure to deal with.
Excellent and swift service. Thank you.
Really nice guys, completed the work on my car and explained all work done. Would recommend to all.
I have used Paul and Central Car Care a number of times now. They offer a fantastic service and nothing is too much of an issue for the customer. The only surprise is the cost, given they are in Kensington..... always value for money! Thanks again.
Like most car owners, I have my preferred garage but tried Paul and his team when my usual place couldn't urgently schedule a repair to pass an MOT. Paul took the car in the next day, talked me through the whole process, gave me options and completed an excellent job exactly when he said he would. Would highly recommend.
Paul was really helpful and had the fan and re-wiring done within a couple of hours and I picked my car up the same day. They also cleaned it for me which was an added bonus and greatly appreciated! Im sticking with this garage from now on!
Friendly and efficient service, wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
Good value for money. Paul was very friendly and he fixed my car In no time. Very nice and satisfactory experiance. I Will recommend to everybody who want good service. Thanks Paul, just in time to organise my trip.
Good customer service and reasonable prices. Fair few things to repair and it was only 3 days.
Excellent, honest and fast. Really pleased. Will definitely be back to get my bumper done
Did a good job, were quite fast, very happy.
Helped me to find out the reason why the aircon did not work properly, ordered the new part, fitted and works fine. At the same time brake discs, pads has been changed. Good small garage with clear straightforward attitude. Thanks, Alex
Price quoted included VAT, however actual price added this on according to customer.
Good service, happy with the result.
Great quality and quick job, everything as described.
Did a good job, no problems
If your car is leaning to one side when you are driving around your local area there could be a major issue, however there may also be a very simple fix which is why we have produced this guide to help you understand more about the issue.
Before we start exploring some of the most common causes of a car leaning to one side or the other, we would like to stress that you will need to take your car into a garage to properly diagnose the issue.
Only a trained professional will be able to tell you exactly what is wrong with your car!
Tire conicity occurs when there is a defect in the tire itself and comes from the result of poor manufacturing. Surprisingly, this is most common in new tires and the problem can cause major pulling to one side or the other.
So what causes the problem? Essentially there is a belt inside the tyre itself, if the belt is not aligned properly then the shape of the tyre will be different than other on your car.
Each tyre should have a bump all the way along the middle of the tyre and with a belt of out alignment, this bump could disappear and the entire surface of the tyre would therefore grip the road.
The car would then pull on one side more than the other as a result.
You will have to have a new tire fitted if this is the case and you may be able to get a free replacement if this is the problem, however it will depend entirely on the manufacturer and extent of the fault.
Tire separation may also become an issue as this causes problems between the belt and the rubber.
When air get in between the two, the tyre is at huge risk of failure and the speed of your car will be noticeably slower.
Low air pressure is one of the most common causes of a car pulling to the left or right as every tire will lose pressure over time.
Even in one tire, low air pressure can cause wheels to move out of alignment while also changing the height of the wheel itself.
It’s important that you check tyre pressure every six weeks or so and especially before long journeys as the effects of low tire pressure could have detrimental knock on effects for the suspension and other parts of your car.
It’s important to make sure that all of the tyres that are fitted to you car are in the same category and from the same manufacturer. This is because the tread of the tyre needs to be the same on all four, if you have a tyre with a different tread on one side then it may not have the same amount of grip as the others and alternatively, it may have more which would cause the car to pull to one side or the other.
It’s important to remember that any wheel alignment or tyre issue will effect the car at all times, not at certain points. For example, if your car lists to one side while you brake, then the issue is with the brakes, not alignment.
However, that’s not to say that brakes can’t cause your car to pull left or right. This can happen when a brake is ‘dragging’.
This happens when a wheel and brake pad are connecting without the driver pressing the brake pedal. A distinctive burning smell will be noticeable if you are suffering from this problem.
If the suspension in your car is damaged, this could also cause your car to lean to one side or the other.
If your car pull’s both left and right at different time’s, then it won’t be alignment that is causing the issue and there is likely to be a different issue.
One example of this could be a ‘memory steer’ which refers to how a car can pull to one side after a driver has steered hard in one direction and then turned the car straight, only to find it listing.
This is likely to be some form of wear down of parts.
It is absolutely vital that you take your car for repair as soon as you feel that your car is pulling to the left or right.
