Great honest customer service, hell of a lot cheaper than most garages! Great to see openings & closings hour’s outside the usual 9-5s
Saved me a fortune on Lexus main dealer price for the water pump on my GS450h. Good honest lads.
Good quick service would use again
Carried out the work professionally would definitely use the garage again
Overall very good service. They had some personal problems at the time, which meant they were stretched and tired but they offered the best offer I could find in Newcastle and Sunderland and a very good service. They also offered some great advice for making sure the car was fixed and stayed good for long to come hopefully.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming, It was great on the way home being able to have air con working. Again a big thank you to everyone. John Pate

Great service, arrived on time. Polite and friendly would definitely use Mark again.
Mark arranged a time and place to fit exhaust and was bang on time. He was polite, courteous and knowledgeable. Mark even went the extra mile to come back the next day to fit an extra part which we only discovered was needed when the exhaust was off. Great service. I am VERY satisfied.
First car, First driver, First Mechanic and definitely the only one I would use and recommend. Mark was brilliant he came when he said he would and spent a long time replacing all brake pipes. Friendly and reliable person. Would definitely recommend him to others.

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.
