Excellent service. Cannot fault! Highly recommended!
Efficient, prompt and made a superb job in fixing the damage. Would highly recommend
Outstanding service and a job very well done!
Janis and his team provided an excellent service. He travelled to my home and collected the car, completed the work as agreed and provided a high specification finish to the damaged area. He dropped it back with a short turnaround and as agreed. Cannot recommend JJ Lux enough.

Very good service, in and out in 40 minutes.
Price was for a service and full exhaust fitting. Can't knock the service. Thumbs up.
I would certainly recommend this garage.
Job turned out more complicated that expected, and rather than a 2 hour job it ended up near 7, despite this mark worked through the rain got the job done and didnt try adding any extra chrges. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYBODY
Absolutely excellent service - definitely recommended and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again
Everything went to plan , job done , only there about 1 hour . Staff were very helpful and it was a clean garage area and well organised.
Everything went fine would recommend this garage.
Great no hassle service, the car was even ready before the suggested time and I was given use of the courtesy car so wasn't without at all. Great stuff will definitely be returning in the future. Thank you.
Used John Atherton Autos twice now and don't think I would go a anywhere else in the future. They fixed my car up after it failed MOT and the end price was far cheaper than what I had actually been quoted so obviously trustworthy and good at what they do.
Excellent service no hidden extras very competitive in price . Professional & friendly service would recommend this garage .
Was dealt with by Syd courteously, promptly and efficiently at a cracking price. Work completed satisfactorily having been misled and messed about by another garage. would wholeheartedy recommend.
Very happy excellent and honest service, and would highly recommend. :)
Went in to have an air con re gas but the garage was really honest and told me it needed a compressor rather than a re gas and didn't charge me. Very pleased with service and advice given. Will definitely come back!
Airconditioning now regassed, also new pollen filter fitted. Work completed an hour and a half.

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.
