Great service and competitive price.
Great service from this Garage. Very personable staff great information and explanation every step of the way. As a single woman did not feel unsure of honest quote which happens frequently and in fact felt very secure throughout the repair. Will certainly use again and would definitely recommend them. Thank you VRS.
Oil change fine. Follow-up jobs to hand brake and calipers were a joke. Returned twice to get hand brake sorted and ended up having to go somewhere else. And calipers were put on rear wheels shoddily. Had to return as wheels were hot. Pins were discovered as being disintegrated on all four calipers by another garage - how they didn't notice that I have no idea. The oil change was fine though.
well where do I start with my praise for everyone at VRS REPAIR SERVICES who go that extra mile to put their customers first, after being totally ripped off quote wise by the big high street exhaust companies one of which refused my car because the manifold bolts were seized,VRS came to my help within minutes of posting on the site, cost was quarter than the high street exhaust places and an extremely fast turnaround. before paying any expensive high street fitting centre costs give VRS a call you will not be dissappointed, am so pleased to find these guys. VRS = VALUE RELIABLE SERVICE. Thank you VRS your a credit to the auto trade
Great service from this garage , they collected my car , fitted a new clutch and delivered it within 4 hours . Will definitely use them again. Good price too.
Collected car and replaced clutch then delivered back to me within about 5 hours. Excellent service and good price would recommend this garage. 5 stars.
who can fix my car is a waste of time not one garage got back intouch with me never again
Avoid at all cost. My car went in as some oil was leaking into coolant tank. RT garage diagnosed it as a head gasket failure. Got the work carried out from them on the first day hamding my car back the car back it broke down on me and they had to get the car towed.Anyways the head gasket Jon was a shamble. The car came back with oil leaking from everywere rocker gasket under neath the car and more oil than ever was leaking into the tank + every time I would drive the car all I could smell was burning oil. Tried to get him to fix it but completely ignored me,ignored all calls and eventually completey lost all contact. If you want to keep you sanity absolutely avoid at all cost regardless of how cheap he maybe

I was stuck 200 miles from home with the slave cylinder gone.As I have previously run a small garage business I knew right away it was a gearbox out job and get clutch replaced at the same time.These guys sorted it out for me in the time they said it would take at the price they quoted.They did a great job with good communication throughout and gave good professional advice on anything to look out for.They also changed the gearbox oil while they were in that far.Would definitely do business with them again.Cheers guys,well appreciated.
Work completed to price quoted. Finished promptly, staff were friendly and helpful.
Quick responses through the platform and good service for drop-off and collection. I would happily use Torque Garage again. Thanks

Fantastic, very thorough, i don't know Newcastle at all so it was great find the garage!
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.
