Can’t recommend c.a enough, brilliant work done on my Saab
Excellent service this guy knows exactly what he's doing. He found problems that all other garages didn't see or ignore.
Excellent service using genuine parts, hence the small increase in price. Friendly and reliable. Perfect that it can be done at home. Thanks.
This is the second time I have used Automotive Cardiff Ltd and I cannot praise highly enough. As well as James being a top mechanic (he easily diagnosed a problem that stumped a local garage), he hides nothing and you get the assurance you are not being ripped off (a rarity these days). If/when I get further problems (or maintenance requirements), I have no hesitation in using again, for sheer convenience (mobile mechanic). peace of mind and value for money.
I didn't want to go to the garage so the garage came to me. Great job, perfectly prepared. Highly recommended!
MOT time. Great service and friendly atmosphere. I travelled 10 miles and I will do it again.
Brilliant, great service!
Took my son's car to the Cardiff branch as he is studying there, guys were really friendly and helpful. Car booked in at 12 and went in to the workshop right on time, nice warm waiting area with free tea and coffee. Unfortunately car failed but the guys helped me source the parts required and allowed me to fit them in their car park. Car then retested and passed. Great service, friendly and knowledgeable staff and good facilities. Definitely recommend them to anyone in the Cardiff area.
needed changing both front break disks and break pads on my car, they done a fast and good job thanks
It can be very difficult finding a garage you can trust. I would definitely feel confident going to this garage again in the future and I would recommend him to others. Thank you Mark.
Great service. Needed a sill welding to pass MOT and the work was done to a good standard. Price was only higher than online quote as inspection was needed for a full quote.
Need other work done so I will be returning
If I could give a marking of 6 I'd do so. Very very capable and put the car through it's paces big time in difficult circumstances! Flagged up all the relevant problems, spotted where the engine bay had been steam cleaned to hide oil leak evidence, picked up the steering rack problem and loose engine mount on the test drive, dead battery on a static test and so much more. If you're buying a used car in the Cardiff area - these are the guys to take! Thank you!
Very resourceful, very quick, didn't have to wait long at all!
It was my first experience with City Service Centre, upon first contacting the garage I received first class communications and superior service I was overwhelmed at the extremely professional and prompt service. My car was on the road again within hours, the cost for parts and labour were minimal. Thank you City Service Centre and to Justin for all your help and time. One extremely satisfied customer.

Very good cost for the work. Diagnostics, Abs sensor fitted and Mot done for the final price. Heading back Monday for work done before retest (sadly shock absorber has gone) Highly recomended.
Great garage, would definitely recommend and will use again. Thanks!
Brilliant garage oil change done there and then can't fault it
Good value for money
Great communication, price and quality of service. Car picked up, clutch replaced and car returned to my door in 2 hours...wow! Highly recommended.
Excellent, punctual response and easy to approach customer service and work carried out, Thank You.
Although the garage were very busy they managed to fit us in within a few days. They picked the car up, did the job and brought it back to our front door. Very punctual and good value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.
Price was good, customer service was great. Would recommend this garage.
Excellent service, got me in very quickly to sort my air con out and the two guys I dealt with were spot on.. Even told me my two rear tyres were close to needing a change and gave me a very competitive price with no pressure.. Many thanks
Excellent service; they started job straight away and completed in 30 minutes. Would use again.

The majority of modern cars have air conditioning fitted as standard as it is vital for making the ride in a car comfortable for passengers.
An air conditioning system works by using refrigerant gas to push air through several components in the aircon system and then into your car.
Whether its freezing cold or boiling hot, it’s your air conditioning which makes driving in such conditions bearable, so it’s important to look after the system!
Surprisingly, over 10% of air-con gas escapes through the system each year. This means that the power of the system drops significantly over time. However, your air conditioning will not be checked during an MOT or service which is why it’s important that you make an effort to have it checked specifically.
Car manufacturers recommend that cars should have their air con recharged (Regassed) every two years.
Even if your car is new it should be something that you have checked as your cars performance could be significantly affected.
This is because the engine will have to work harder to produce cold air if there is an issue with the air conditioning meaning more fuel will be required to make the system work.
If the system has not been recharged in two years, the drop in engine performance will be noticeable.
As soon as you realise a drop in the power of your air con you should take the vehicle in for repair. If there is an unpleasant smell being emitted, this is another sign that the air con needs looking at.
The job of recharging air conditioning is not complex and will not take long.
The mechanic will carry out a leaks check on the air con system before the repair work, to ensure the job can be carried out without causing damage to the car.
As soon as this is complete, the technician will be able to recharge the system.
The mechanic carrying out the work will first remove old refrigerant from your car as well as the current gas and lubricant.
They will then replace it with new gas and lubricants.
The job will also typically include an entire system clean out which is carried out to remove any bacterial build up.
This is often the reason for a strange or unpleasant smell being emitted from the air conditioning which is why it is important to have this job completed every two years.
The whole process should take around 45 minutes as there are no new parts required for install.
The air conditioning in your car should be noticeably improved after a regas if you haven’t had one for over two years.
If you want to ensure your air conditioning stays in tip top condition, make sure to use it regularly as this the compressor will stay lubricated.Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we simplified the process.
