Only managed to do half the job due to lack of the correct tools, then charged me 50% more than original price, even after I double checked that price wasn’t going to go up Won’t be using them again as I’ve now got get the job completed by a professional and competent garage
I had a problem with my car last night and Mike was in touch straight away with a reasonable quote. By 11am today the problem was resolved. I would highly recommend Autosolutions to all my friends and family. Great service and very honest people. Thanks again, Mike!
Requested work - an oil and filter change was carried out smoothly & efficiently and while I waited (as agreed at the time of the booking). The cost was also very competitive. Laura, the receptionist, was very helpful and knowageable as was the mechanic who was also very thorough.
Excellent service friendly and helpful staff thanks
Got a cheap quote on getting my front wheels tracked for 30£. Got there and got sent to some other garage to get the job done ( they couldnt see me the same day) after having already paid for the job at m60s and even if I specifically stated that I need it done the same day. ( I WOULD NOT ASK YOU TO FIX IT IF YOU WOULDVE TOLD ME THAT YOU CAN NOT HONOUR YOUR WORDS). I was asked to come back the second day which I could not do. I had to leave the country for a while and when I got back it took another few trips (foe example I've booked an appointment for 10am on a saturday..got there and got asked to come back a few hours later?! I HAVE BOOKED IT A FEW DAYS IN ADVANCE!!! ) to have other issues sorted out except for what I have paid for before...I am VERY UNHAPPY with the garage...it seems like nobody gives a damn about you..things not being fixed in time...nobody calls you when the car is done IF it;s done..ive been insisting on the phone and now im really angry after spending way too much money on taxis when I couldve spent 10-15£ more and fix it asap. Also, on the same number im speaking with 3 different guys...1 is alright the other 2 seem not to know much about whats going on..i dont know how the garage has the rating it has because they definitely didnt care about me and my car.
Clutch, gear oil, and engine mounting. Price was good.
Zak at M60 Autos was fantastic! He called me to discuss pricing and offered to do the job in £600 including clutch and flywheel. My car was picked up and dropped off and I decided to get a full service done as well. Very helpful, friendly and customer-centred! Will be coming again for anything in the future. Definitely recommend!
got it done but they knackered my radio and dvd and kept ringing saying this was wrong and that was wrong with the car it only went in for a clutch so no I would not say I was happy also got no receipt on payment
Efficient service. No hassle. Excellent. Many thanks.
Everything was fine, perfect!
It was excellent service by the garage. They ran the diagnostics at £20 as agreed and found the fault quickly. I was able to leave my car with them and they replaced the parts the next day. Even showed me the damaged parts they removed with photos too. Can't fault them at all and built trust to show me the actual faulty parts.
Very quick service
Spot on! Would use again
Excellent service and really friendly. Couldn't ask for more.
Sound guy, changed discs and pads and give the car a once over and was very helpful. Would definitely use again and recommend!
Arranged to do the job at my home address the same day it was arranged at 6.30pm even though it was dark and it was raining and cold. Horrible weather and a real pig of a job to get at the starter motor in a Citroen C1 1.4 Diesel. However kept at it for 2.5 hours solid deally with rusted, inaccessible bolts and tricky positioning of part until car was up and running again. All with good humour. Sound guy and a good job and highly competitive prices. Definitely recommend.
Excellent, friendly and prompt service from a thoroughly nice guy! I would wholeheartedly recommend that you use Manchester Vehicle Solutions
Fast service great garage would use again
First class work carried out same day. Greatly appreciated and thanks.
Great garage, great service although took a bit longer than expected.
Excellent service considering that I only booked it in today at the last minute, and that there was additional works required on the exhaust (which is reflected in the price from the original quote). Highly recommended.
Great service and communication
First of all the guy who collected the car was great. He came across as a really nice genuine person which is the impression you want when handing over your keys so thank you to him! A few improvements - I was advised to expect pickup between 10am and 11am but unfortunately they didn't turn up until 11:45am which made me miss my 12pm dentist appointment. I was also told it would take 2/3 hours but I got the car back at 5:45pm. Apparently this was due to them not having the fuel filter in stock even though this was discussed as being required for the full service and it would be needed prior to today. Also, I wasn't expecting the car to be valeted for the price but every other time I've had a full car service it's came back clean so I did expect a basic wash/vacuum. Overall, I think these guys are honest and dependable but there are some room for improvements. Thanks
Excellent service. My car was collected and delivered even though I live outside the collection zone. Excellent value for money for a full service and mot. I would recommend this garage.
Booked my Peugeot 206cc in for a Full Service, car was picked up and dropped off at the estimated times stated, the owner collected and he seemed like a nice genuine guy, stuck to the price quoted. Happy with the service provided!
Excellent service. Picked up when promised for MOT and returned car earlier than expected.
Picked up and dropped off with ease for free, my car feels like it drives like new.

An interim service is carried out on a car by a mechanic, who checks a number of key components and parts of a car.
An interim service can be extremely helpful for finding minor problems before they develop into major ones as many parts of a car will naturally wear down over time. The ones at high risk will usually be checked during an interim service.
For a driver, having an interim service carried out is a smart move as you may not realise there is a problem developing and it could end up costing you even more money down the line.
It is also recommended that you should get an interim service every 6,000 miles.
What would you prefer, to replace a pressure gauge or have your car written off entirely due to the head gasket blowing!
The difference between a full service and an interim service is the amount of parts checked. As the name suggests, an interim service will be less thorough than a full service.
However, that does not mean that a lot is checked during an interim service!
In the next section, we will list what is checked during an interim service.
If you would like to know what is included in a full service, click here to see a dedicated page.
Engine oil is absolutely vital for keeping your car is good health and serious damage will be cause to a vehicle if there is low or none existent engine oil.
This is one of the easiest things to check and will always be included in an interim service.
Brake fluid is vital for the brake system as it is responsible for applying pressure to the pads and discs when bringing a car to a halt. If there is a small leak in the braking system, the liquid will inevitably pour out. This will then prevent you from braking all together so it is vital that this never happens!
During the winter months, if a car is left outside for an extended period of time, it will be subject to potential problems. Coolant is a liquid which runs through a car engine, keeping the level of heat and friction down, similar to engine oil.
The radiator needs to have a healthy supply of coolant to operate and keep the engine cool, which is why it is vital there is also enough anti-freeze in the system as well. If the coolant freezes and you start your engine in cold weather, your engine could overheat and damage could be caused extremely quickly.
Having enough windscreen wash may not strike you as critical, however, if you are driving your car and your view of the road becomes obstructed, you need to be able to wash your screen.
Like brake fluid, power steering fluid is checked in an interim service and the reason are exactly the same. Power steering fluid is critical for being able to steer a car and if there is a leak, or even air bubbles in the system, you will be in trouble.
If the problem is air bubbles, you can pump the clutch to resolve the issue, however, if there is a leak, a bigger repair will be required.
It is a legal requirement that you have working headlights so the wiring around rear and headlights will be checked during an interim service to ensure they are not at risk of cutting out.
Windscreen wipers naturally wear down over time and lose their ability to remove dirt and water from a windscreen. A mechanic will make sure your windscreen wipers are good enough to do this during an interim service.
The most common problem car batteries have is dying however, with a jump start, this problem can be sorted. A mechanic has no way of knowing if this will happen and so they cannot check for anything specific when it comes to this potential issue arising.
However, the integrity of a car battery could come into question and they can sometimes crack, resulting in battery acid spilling into the car engine. This is a very serious issue and so the battery will be checked for signs of damage during an interim service to ensure this does not happen to you.
The charging system is responsible for keeping your car battery full of power, if it is compromised, then it highly likely that you will suffer from a regular dead battery.
The alternator can be to blame for problems with the charging system and so will be checked during an interim service.
The most common issue the exhaust system suffers from is rust and leakage of dangerous fumes. There are several parts of an exhaust system which will be checked in an interim service including the catalytic converter which is responsible for taking the most toxic and dangerous elements out of the fumes created by a car engine.
A mechanic will mainly be checking for holes and rust when it comes to the exhaust system.
It is a legal requirement to have 1.6mm tyre tread depth in the UK as this allows a car to grip the road firmly, if it is any lower, you are actually breaking the law!
This will always be checked while an interim service is being carried out, as will a pressure check on your tyres.
A brake test will be carried out during an interim service to ensure your car is able to come to a stop properly. If your car cannot do this, there is a good chance the brake pads or discs have worn down.
Surprisingly, some drivers don’t realise that their steering isn’t what it is supposed to be which is why this service is provided in an interim service.
There may be a number of issues which would cause steering issues including wheel alignment, in which case, a simple fix is available.
The shock absorbers make up a part of the steering and suspension system and are self explanatory in their role in a car.
However, their effectiveness will drop over time resulting in a less comfortable ride for passengers. The large springs will be checked during a full service for degradation.
The suspension of a car is part of the steering system and so will be rigorously checked during an interim service.
As mentioned at the top of the text, an interim service can help identify problems before they arise as mechanics are trained to be able to recognise the signs of a part having issues at an early stage.
This means you will be able to avoid a serious and potentially dangerous situations developing in the future.
The cost of an interim service will vary depending on the garage and the car itself. At the top of the page you will be able to see what the average cost of an interim service is in the UK, however, you can get free and personalised quotes for an interim service using WhoCanFixMyCar.
