Efficient service, got booked in straight away
I was very happy with the level of customer service and care and attention they paid to my BMW and to explaining the issues to me. They were very thorough and have a great family feel about them. The price was fair and I would most certainly recommend them to others. I will definitely be doing business with them again.
Very good service! Robert replied to all messages within minutes, the repairs and MOT were done within 1 day for a very fair price. Would definately go to C and R again.
Great service and high quality work. Bob was very knowledgeable and helpful, and price was fair.
I went for a abs fault, they very professional and friendly fix it in no time, I sincerely recommend this garage, they deliver as promised. I am making this my repair garage for the future
These guys are good, very happy with the work and I'll use them again.
I've used many garages before and keep changing in search of someone reliable honest and that can get the job done!! That is exactly what I found in auto plaza keen and professional the job got done would defiantly use again!!
Summary : Pleased with AutoPlaza. Fixed my problem. My car is a Peugeot 5008 2011 plate Initially I asked AutoPlaza for a quote for the work my local Peugeot garage (Edgware) told me I needed. That was a new fuel pump, electric pump connected to the fuel pump and a fuel pipe. The quote for the work from Peugeot was over £1000. The initial message from AutoPlaza was encouraging as Rob said he could save me money as not all the work Peugeot quoted would necessarily need to be done. I called him and he sounded knowledgeable and was able to explain possible causes of the engine warning light. He said they would test the fuel pump and check if it really did need replacing. They had my car for two days (fine with that) and fixed the issue without having to change the fuel pump. They actually only needed to change the water pump which Peugeot failed to diagnose – I have had to top up the engine coolant every few months and the Peugeot main dealer just told me “it’s just one of those things”. I would recommend AutoPlaza as they not only fixed my problem but they also found the cause to a problem that the Peugeot main dealer missed. These guys are mechanics whereas the Peugeot main dealer have technicians who simply replace parts so will inevitably will change parts that don’t need changing and leave the poor customer to foot the bill. I am glad I choose AutoPlaza because if I’d gone with the Peugeot garage recommendation I would have paid over £1000 to have parts changed that didn’t need changing and would still have the same problem. Total cost was £340. Thanks Auto Plaza for doing a good job on my wife’s car.
Probably the most efficient and professional service I have ever received. I needed my bumper, driver headlamp, and 2 side wings fixed after an accident on a 9 year old BMW 1 series in red. It took just 3 days for the complete works to be completed including almost perfect dare I say it blending in the paintwork so that you cannot even tell the difference with the adjacent bonnet and car doors. Rob, Lucas and the team are consummate professionals and clearly very knowledgeable and skilled. My dad was so impressed that now the whole family will be coming to fix and service their cars! Great job!!
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.
Please with the overall experience
Excellent service at a very competitive price. I would recommend without hesitation.
Excellent work and service. Went above and beyond to make sure I was aware of everything. Happy to recommend.
I had a full service and MOT, the service was very professional at a great price! They even washed my car while they were at it... brilliant :-) Would highly recommend.
My second full service from this garage. Very competitive price and excellent service. I would recommend without reservation.
very helpful, great service, helpful team
Great work, very quick. Kept me informed all the way through and did some extra jobs at no extra charge. Very polite. Would recommend them.
Picked car up on time and changed clutch and flywheel using best quality parts. Also did a health check and found egr needed cleaning and an engine mount was worn and would need changing but was safe to drive with . Car back same day. Very pleased with all work . All worn part given back for me to inspect and diagnoses spot on
The service I received was excellent. They collected the car and dropped it off all in a day, they made sure I was happy with the work before asking me to pay. And finally they called me to make sure they could drop the car off in advance so I could make sure I was in. I would definitely use them in the future.
I highly recommend Peter and his team. Although I was initially slightly sceptical as I had never delt with CDS before. I even went to their garage half way through the work to make sure they were legitimate and to check on the work. All I can say is that I will only be using them from now on for my entire family's car and van needs. The quote was for £360 for a new clutch but the car needed quite a lot of other work that I was happy to be completed locally. But after they collected the car their communication was impeccable with video messages to demonstrate any new discoveries. They were exceptionally patient with me whilst I deliberated the options. In the end I had all of the outstanding work carried out by Peter and his team who were very kind to do the vast majority of the work for free with me only paying the cost value of the parts (I checked the car parts price with europarts and I could not buy them cheaper than they supplied them to me for) they even washed and valeted the car and delivered it back to me on time as promised. In short they saved me a lot of money, gave me an absolutely first class service, delivered far more than they promised and provided consistantly excellent communication throughout. I encourage anyone reading this to not hesitate but put their trust in this garage; they have more than earnt mine.
Yes! Prompt diagnostics, and timely service. Very friendly and knowledgeable.
Cannot recommend this place enough. fully serviced, MOT'd and replaced a part for an excellent price and have since been back for more work to be done which was completed quickly and efficiently. Excellent customer service from Alex who gave advice on what to do with regards to further repairs. 10/10!!
As quoted, finished when promised - can't ask for more. Would definitely recommend.
Great quick service. I arrived earlier than my appointment and was seen straight away. Took under an hour! Great job. Thanks guys.
I didn't have the chance to take the car to their garage as AA came and fixed the breakdown but I appreciated the outstanding communication and the friendly help on the phone.
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.
