Good price and service. Would use again
They were great
I needed my clutch replacing, and was given a very competitive price for this. I took the car to the garage aware that the flywheel may need to be replaced. This was the case. The mechanic kept the damaged flywheel to show why it needed replacing. The service was efficient, priced competitively, and the receptionists were brilliant. I have a 12 month warranty on the work that was completed, and am very happy to recommend this garage.
Excellent service and excellent price. Used twice now. Not local to me but worth the bit of traveling.
Really good service, came and picked up the car and also stayed opened late for me
Extremely grateful for the whole experience with M60 Autos - Zac responds swiftly all the time, the speed of their repair is unbelievably quick, and every personnel I’ve met at M60 Autos is extremely helpful and professional. The most important thing is that they do CARE about you - they listen to their customers and try to help you out as far as they can, which is really impressive. I felt really really lucky to have found such an excellent garage, and I’ll defo go to them for any future car issues/servicing/maintenance. Highly highly recommended and thanks again so much!!

Great service and great price.
Did a good job , second time I have used them. The only reason I gave them 4 stars , they were not on time when picking up the car and returning it. I would still recommend them to other people.
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
Another job well done!
Arrived on time, very professional and courteous, and efficiently got on with the job. Delighted with work done. What's more, this was in the evening in sub-zero temperatures. I would definitely recommend and use again. Thanks Matt
Great price and mobile. Definitely recommend
Great helpful and friendly service and the owner Zaid kindly dropped me home and picked me up too!
Excellent and very friendly welcome upon arrival, the service was done very professionally and on time, although out of my local area,I had a little more to travel than usual the experience was brilliant and I recommend anyone to use their services as they are very competitive on price and value.

First to reply to the job, good service had the car ready in two days after needing a change on the oil filter and timing belt.
I called Total Fix Service and they ordered parts, carried out the work and I was back on the road within 24hours. Would highly recommend this garage for their professionalism, speed and reasonable price for the works.
Great price and speedy service. Would definitely recommend.
No nonsense service while I waited. All working as expected. Would use again.
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.
