Accommodating and knowledgeable, great service
Honest update and price was lower than quoted due to spark plugs that didn't need replacing during this service.

well where do I start with my praise for everyone at VRS REPAIR SERVICES who go that extra mile to put their customers first, after being totally ripped off quote wise by the big high street exhaust companies one of which refused my car because the manifold bolts were seized,VRS came to my help within minutes of posting on the site, cost was quarter than the high street exhaust places and an extremely fast turnaround. before paying any expensive high street fitting centre costs give VRS a call you will not be dissappointed, am so pleased to find these guys. VRS = VALUE RELIABLE SERVICE. Thank you VRS your a credit to the auto trade

Would of gave a 6 if I could, couldn’t recommend them enough!
Thank you Mark and PSA for replacing my clutch and flywheel. I was in a tricky situation because, I’m sure like everyone, I depend on my car for work and family. I had been given some eye watering quotes for the job. I’m really happy with the price and the quality of the job. My car is now purring rather than rumbling! The job was done quickly and communication was excellent. It was a huge relief to get my car back and all sorted by the afternoon. I recommend this garage, even if it is slightly out of your area bear it in mind because of the value and quality of the work, which can be really hard to find. Especially as a woman going into a garage, prices and service seem to vary a great deal. I’m very happy with the outcome. Thank you!
Very happy from get-go, explained clearly what would need to be done, called and advised about additional part replacement even send the picture of the part so I could see the damage. Job completed very quickly, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Working away from home and your car fails on you is the worst thing in the world,But thanks to PITT STOP AUTOS they saved me from the moment of contact to delivery of car repaired can't think the team enough worked late to get it done for me very professional work and to talk to,Defo recommend these guys to any 1 and will use again if needed. Thanks Ryan from sunny scotland

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.
