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.
Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about MOT services. However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
An MOT is a service provided by garages which every car is legally required to have carried out.
A cars roadworthiness will be checked during the MOT as each major component is inspected by a trained professional. A garage has to have authorisation from the DVSA to carry out an MOT as they have to meet the minimum requirement to carry out the inspection.
You don’t need to take your car for an MOT for three years if you buy and register it brand new, however as soon as the three years are up, it is a legal requirement that you take your car for an MOT annually.
Below we have included some useful information on what is checked during your MOT as well as things you can do to increase your chances of passing at the first attempt.
The The exhaust system is made up of several parts and components which all need to be checked individually. The main issue that mechanics will be looking out for is leakage of fumes or liquid, as these are the most common issues associated with the exhaust system.
There is very little you can do to help your car pass an MOT if there is a problem with this system as a hole cannot be blocked up unless you are a trained professional.
The fuel system will also get checked for leaks however, by checking that the tank cap is sealed properly, you may be able to avoid failing your MOT for a minor issue.
The emissions of a car must fall below specific legal limits which means that if your car produces too much carbon monoxide or hydrocarbons, it will fail its MOT.
You can increase your chances of passing an MOT by addressing the problem before having the service carried out as it is easy to diagnose a problem with your fuel emission levels.
If your exhaust emits excessive blue or black smoke when the engine is switched on and while driving, there is a high chance that there is an issue. By addressing it early you can avoid failing the MOT test.
One in ten cars fail their MOT due to tyre issues. The mechanic will be checking the tread of the tyre when carrying out the MOT as well as looking for damage such as lumps, bulges or tears.
A tyre tread should be at least 1.6mm and be the correct type as they need to be able to maintain the speed and weight of the car while its being driven.
You can use a tread depth gauge to check if your tyres are safe to drive on and whether they will pass the MOT, if the tread is less than 1.6mm, your car will fail.
It is also important to ensure your tyres are fully inflated and the pressure is correct as this is another issue which will likely result in failure.
The parts being checked will consist of windscreen wipers, windscreen, wing mirrors, rear view mirror and windows. It will be obvious that you will fail your MOT if your view of the road around you is impeded.
This could be caused by broken or missing mirrors as well as cracked or heavily chipped windows.
Your rear view mirrors and wing mirrors must be able to move while remaining secure to provide a driver with an adequate view of the road. The wipers and washers are also included in checks as they must be able to clean the windows effectively.
You will fail your MOT if there is damage or an obstruction in your windows bigger than 10mm within the immediate viewing area and 40mm anywhere else.
You can improve your chances of passing your MOT by making sure you buy new wiper blades at least once a year and thouroughly checking all of your windows.
You should also ensure your screen wash reservoir is fully topped up as it will be checked during the MOT.
A wide ranging inspection will be carried out with the body, engine mountings, seats, doors and chassis. They are required to be completely free of erosion and cannot have any sharp edges which could cause injury.
You must also have your registration plates attached to your car which need to be visible from 20 meters away.
Your car should also be shown to display a vehicle identification number (VIN) which should be etched onto the body or chassis.
The speedometer must also be fully secure and able to light up.
Every seatbelt in the vehicle must be fully functional as this will be checked rigorously by the inspector.
Almost a third of all MOT failures are due to light, electrical or reflector failure. The front, rear, brake, fog, indicator, registration plate and reflectors must adhere to the following standards;
If one of the bulbs in your car breaks you can buy a replacement relatively easily which is something you should do if you are due an MOT.
Make sure to consult your owners handbook before buying a bulb to discover the correct unit.
The horn on your car must also be full working order and be able to deliver a strong uniform note which can be heard by another driver on the road.
The battery in your car will also be checked for leakage and stability within the engine.
Wiring will be inspected for wear and tear and cannot be at the point of breaking.
If you have a towbar for a trailer, the socket will be checked as it must be able to send power to the indicators on the trailer itself.
The mechanic carrying out the MOT will be inspecting the condition of the steering wheels by pushing the steering system in numerous directions as well as assessing the system for damage on specific components.
If your car has a locking devise, this will also be checked when the vehicle is stationary and the engine is not running.
If you have power steering, there must be a correct amount of fluid in the reservoir.
The suspension on your car will be checked visually as the springs and shock absorbers will be inspected for corrosion, distortion or fracture.
We have an in-depth page dedicated to steering and suspension which you can access by clicking here.
The overall condition of your brakes and all of the components that make up the system will be inspected thoroughly.
A specific break test will be performed to ensure your car has the correct stopping power to be on the road.
