I was amazed about their professionalism. A very clean garage, friendly and polite staff. I am very impressed and satisfied how they've checked my Van to renew my MOT. Thank you, Jason Scott LEWIS.
Malmar motors gave me the best quote for my job, but that isn't why I chose them for the job. I phoned several quotes and after speaking to Lee at Malmar I was impressed by his professional manner and obvious knowledge. The job was booked in and completed very quickly, without fuss or sales talk. I'm well satisfied and would recommend. I will be using Malmar motors again.
Good service. Helpful staff. Was kept in touch throughout. Ended up costing more than quoted because needed a new part but was fully explained and now working well. Would definitely use again.
Great customer service, very fair price

Adam was outstanding! He spent the time to diagnose and pinpoint the problem with my car...which has eluded my own garage and 4 AA mechanics! I can't recommend him highly enough! Fantastic mechanic.
Adam was great and managed to fix my vehicle at the side of the road. I'd previously called the AA out and they were unable to do this, so I was extremely pleased that Adam could! Would definitely recommend.

Jay gave me the cheapest quote for air-con re-gas.He collected the car and phoned when it was done.I will use them again
Had the air conditioning regassed and for the money (cheapest available as I was quoted £50+ by other garages) this was by far the best service available! Would most definitely recommend and will definitely be coming back here for my air conditioning!

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.
