Excellent service and job done quickly ! A++
Great garage. I knew my car needed work so booked it in for a spring replacement after a dodgy pot hole broke it. My usual garage was full so I found this garage using this website.. ten times better than my usual garage! They found a few other jobs that needed doing and repaired at a very good price and checked everything over with me. They found jobs my garage had advised did not need doing which could have wrecked my car in the long run! Great staff who know what they're doing and fix the problems at a great price and are very fair.. have had 3 other jobs fixed by them afterwards and will use them always in the future. Thanks
Found the fault and fix the problem in less than 30 mins when other garages havent had a clue what the problem was. Many thanks. Highly recommended.
Great garage, would definitely use again..
Great job done with excellent customer care attitude
Definitely recommend. Very friendly, kept me updated all the way. If my car needs any more repairs will be going back here
Fantastic service, very good price! Picked up and dropped off on time, replaced timing chain oil and filter same day and cleared all error codes. Would recommend no problems to friends Thank you
Despite the job taking longer than originally estimated, the garage kept me informed of their progress and said the car would be ready for 6pm, and it was. New clutch fitted, apparently Suzuki's are a bit of a pain to change, and the car runs smoothly. Good work guys. Dennis P.
Very fast service going to use this garage again
Had to wait a week from getting my initial quote as the garage was fully booked but it was worth the wait. When I dropped my car off was told it would be 1 & half hours to do so I said i would come back. Went back in the time said and just had to wait a few mins. They take card payments which was a blessing and just from this you can tell its not just a back street garage. I would recommend this garage and if I request another quote on whocanfixmycar.com and they give me a quote I would definitely go with this garage again. Thank you Silvio great service x
Brilliant, speedy response and quick job well done for a good price. Thanks again.
I would definitely recommend Paul. My vechicle was off the road, Paul turned up with the new part and had it back on the road in 20 mins. I will be using Paul again.
Great price and mobile. Definitely recommend
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
A+ service friendly and efficient service can't fault them will be using again.
Highly recommend this place, after recently moving to the area, I needed a new garage. Glad I found this place, good bunch of lads, speedy work and booked me in at very short notice. 100% found my new garage.
Great service! Took my fiat bravo for service and MOT. The inspection revealed that the car needed some works done as front break discs and pads, one front coil spring, and new rear reg plate. Communication was great from start to finish providing an accurate quote for car parts and repairs. Staff was kind, friendly and professional and the final price was good too. I would definitely raccomend this garage and I’m certainly using in the future. I’m very satisfied and in my opinion they deserve all of the good reviews I read about them which convinced me to chose this garage! Thanks guys!
Excellent professional service received.
Can't rate this garage enough and look forward to using them again. Communication from start to finish was excellent. The gentleman picked up the car and returned it to my house, complimentary,. My Peugeot 2008 went in for a full service, mot and they also checked my electrics for free for passenger door window issue. Cant rate them enough. Much appreciated. Very friendly staff and they went out of thier way which is refreshing change! Highly recommended!
Cant praise enough, car picked up and delivered back in the same day, they even fixed another problem I had for free... Had the job done nearly a week ago and all is well. Even gave me time to pay if I needed. Will tell my friends and definitely use again. Great price.. Thank you Total fix Service..........

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.
