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
They were excellent!
Replacement clutch, Citroen Picasso. Great job, quick job & very reasonable price would definitely use again
Fantastic, did everything that was asked, came and picked up the car as well.
Fantastic mechanic! Stuck to his original price, cannot recommed enough
I would definitely recommend this garage. The customer service was excellent and the price of my repairs, service and MOT were very reasonable. My car was also collected and returned on time which was an added bonus. Would definitely use again
very nice people and good service , will go there for my next one too
Service carried out as requested. Very efficient and friendly staff. I'd definitely use this company in the future.
The service I received was first class. This is a family run business that treats its customers like extended family. Chris picked my car up from work and left a courtesy car for me should I need it. The job was completed entirely to my satisfaction and the management and staff are so friendly and utterly professional. I popped into the garage the next day with a separate minor issue with my car and Chris sorted it out on the spot and no charge was made. I'd recommend this garage to anyone without hesitation. Thanks John and Chris.
I had Brian having a look at my car on Thursday and he was brilliant! I would chose them again.
Robin answered our message late hours of Friday night and was here by 4pm on the Saturday to fix the problem!! Needed it fixed asap for my parents to drive back home from Newcastle to wales the next day!! Highly recommend this company and will definitely use again!! Thank you
Spot on. Great communication. Honest advice and solid work. Can't fault the lad.
He did a great job. I would certainly use again in future. A+
Work carried out at short notice, all as quoted. Highly recommended
Fast work excellent price
The price only increased because I also asked for new batteries in keys. They completed the work quickly and car was back when they said it would be. Marvellous service and my car won't be going anywhere else for servicing or repair from now on. Totally recommend Gators.
Customer service was excellent from the start which made me feel confident to deal with the garage. Compliments to Steve and Lee ! They collected the car from work then returned it after - a major time saving convenience for me. Great qlty work done and at an affordable price. 1st time to deal with Gator Garage and I was so pleased with them that I'll now be taking in our 2nd family car next week. I recommend them.
Really impressive service. They did exactly as they said they would. Would definitely use them again.
Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
