Very obliging, fault found quickly and recommended repairs carried out quickly and efficiently. Problem cured! Would recommend.
Had my volvo 240 Alternator (and belts) replaced here today. 100% happy with the job and high level of customer care I received. I didn't have any luck with the garage I normally use ( still awaiting a quote from when I phoned them on monday..) so i decided to try whocanfixmycar.com. In under an hour I got a message from Douglas at revolution vehicles, with a full quote - which included labour, VAT and the choice of a loaner car for the day. The price was very fair and it seemed no other garage wanted to take on this task, I happily accepted the quote and booked in with Douglas and his team. From the get go I was given great customer care - friendly, helpful and genuine. I was abit late to drop the car off as I broke down on the way, the guys there where very understanding in the situation, which helps when things don't go to plan! When dropping off my 240, I was shown around the facility and you just get the feeling the guys working there have the knowledge and experience to get your motor back on the road quickly and efficiently ( it was also backed up by the impressive collection of classic sports cars they are currently working on - Which included a lovely classic Lamborghini and e-type jag!) All in all, i am very happy with the level of service I received today. It can be hard to find friendly and genuine garages, it seems I may have stumbled upon a gem! Would happily recommend this garage to others!
I can’t recommend this garage highly enough. They were very friendly and the work was first class. They kept me informed throughout the day and the loan car was a bonus. I will be using them again.
I cannot thank Douglas and his team enough, finding a company who not only have the knowledge, understanding and expertise to complete a gearbox rebuild, they did it in less than 3 days and offered me a courtesy car whilst mine was with them. It is clear they are proud of their business, from initial engagement and discussions to the completion of work the communication was FANTASTIC. On arrival at the garage they showed me around the garage and I can honestly say I haven’t seen a cleaner well laid out garage. The mechanics were all friendly whilst a walked around and the other cars they were working on are certainly pride and joys for other customers who entrusted revolution vehicles to complete the work. They seem to enjoy and focus on resolving issues the best way rather than merely easiest. I was anticipating having to purchase a new gearbox for £4K from the dealer until revolution introducted themselves. Whilst completing the work they advised wear on the clutch which I had an idea may need replacing soon and gave me a good price to fit at the same time as dealing with the gearbox which will save me in the long term. I feel confident going forward that this will be my garage to go to for all my service and MOT work on my car. Very few businesses pride themselves as much in the professionalism and high work ethic, however I can certainly vouch for this business and already recommended them to friends and family. Thank you Douglas and colleagues for everything and I will see you in the near future for my further motoring needs
Very pleased with the service but feel the price was a little high. I has my clutch replaced and was charged ~£350 for Labour.
Very good service,would recommend.
Excellent communication, very punctual and customer oriented. Repair was less then expected, and paid substantially less. I will keep this service as favourite even it is not in hometown. Thank you Laszlo!
Excellent work by Lazlo to change my brake pads and discs. He turned up on time and did the work in an efficinet and professional manner. I would use him again.
Would definitely recommend. Was a bit apprehensive due to low price but will use Lazlo for all my car jobs in the future
Laszlo was very efficient and nothing was too much trouble. We had already bought a new battery which unfortunately did not fit. He came and went to get the correct battery straight away and quickly came back to finish the job. Thanks so much!
This garage gave me the best price for replacing the cambelt and I also asked them to change the water pump at the same time. They arranged to pick the car up at a convenient time in the morning, the work was carried out and the car returned the same day with a completed receipt for all the work. This was a very easy and efficient process and I would highly recommend this garage.
Very helpful, fast and did extra work for me with short notice for a good price
First class service from some really pleasant mechanics.... they were able to fit me in first thing and were very quick and efficient. Top notch service, much appreciated!
Rich was extremely polite, professional and collected/delivered my car on time. A very competitive price too. Would recommend.
Excellent service. Fast collection and delivery. Highly recommended.

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.
