Really friendly, even got me in a day earlier and finished the job promptly. Gave me a courtesy car which I think is great because I didn't live close by.
Really happy to have found this little garage on whocanfixmycar.com. Booked in for service, a little nervous going to a new garage but they were great, advised I needed new tyres and quoted for them, so I will be going back and definitely recommend these guys.

Nine months ago I gave up 15 years of Honda ownership and bought a 2010 SEAT Ibiza. This was now due for its 80K service so I was looking for a garage that would do a good job a bit cheaper than SEAT's authorised service stations. I was given a link to WhoCanFixMyCar and used this to find garages in my area. Even though they are not that local to me, I chose ACS "in the dark" as they had an impressive number of good reviews, particularly an enthusiastic one in March by another SEAT owner, Maria; I was not disappointed. My car was booked for full service and MOT and Patrick was very prompt with messages and texts (even up to midnight) about this and subsequently the needed extra work to be done (replace brakes and tyres) - which was not at all unexpected in view of previous MOT advisories - and also the dreaded timing chain replacement as this had become very noisy. He was very helpful with guidance on what to be done now and what could be left until a bit later. However, as my car was with him for several days I did feel that later communications were somewhat infrequent, leaving me uncertain as to when I would get my car back. (I'd deduct a 1/2 point for this). This niggle apart, ACS were not the cheapest, but were reasonably priced (less than SEAT's prices) and gave me a feeling of confidence that the work would be done "to bring the car back to where it should be" to use Patrick's words. They collected and returned the car for me, and now that I have had the opportunity to drive it for about 200 miles, it feels good! I hadn't realised just how noisy the worn timing chain had been; the brakes (although I am still bedding them in) are now smooth and powerful, and the new tyres (Patrick's choice) seem much quieter than my old ones. It all feels like a new car. I'll be using ACS for again for further jobs - there are still some of those advisories to be completed!
Second time I've used Automotive Components Specialists and yet again they were great. Quote was for an MOT and service and all I was charged was the quoted price. They had every chance to add a few 'extras' in there to bump up the price but they didn't, both times I've used them they've been utterly fair. Someone picked up my car in the morning and it was delivered back with everything done that evening. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
The service I received was fantastic! My car was collected and returned by the garage which was great especially around a busy schedule. We didn't have to worry about getting the car dropped to the garage. With no clutch the car was in drivable. The garage was by far the most competitive on price and Patrick even called me and gave me advice on how to prevent the new clutch from burning out. The fork had also burnt out and Patrick called me to advise, this increased the cost ever so slightly however only the charge for the part was added not the additional labour. The car is now in great working order and we will definitely use this garage again.
Excellent service they were welcoming and nothing seemed a problem. I was quoted £350 for a clutch replacement but they checked the car first and only needed filters replaced so they did a full service also. Great lads, great service thank you I will be using you again.
Fast, friendly , professional would use them again
Great service and job done promptly and on time. Thanks.
Brilliant price and service. Clutch replaced in one day
My first time to come to this garage through whocanfixmycar.com and I will definitely come again for sure and platimum garage will be my garage now. I am satisfied with the work they’ve done to my car and my car Alfa Romeo is running smooth again on the road after they’ve fixed it. They’ve gave me discount for the MOT and didn’t charge me for the diagnostic test. I will recommend platinum garage to everyone and you won’t regret. Thank you for the good job guys!
Excellent service, I will use this mechanic all the time, I will recommend to all family and friends.
Couldn't recommend this garage enough...very decent rate for recovery...quick job turn around and seem fairly competitive in price. Recommend
Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about getting your car to start. However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
There are a variety of reasons for a Alfa Romeo not starting as there are many systems which effect the mechanism for starting an engine.
If your Alfa Romeo won’t start it can be extremely irritating as there may be no way of knowing what the problem is. You may have a minor issue that you could resolve with a small amount of maintenance or it could be a major problem that requires a professionally trained mechanic to diagnose and repair.
If your Alfa Romeo is not starting the best thing to do is get a mechanic to come out to where you live and take a look at the vehicle which you can do by entering your details in the form above.
If you would like to learn what the problem may be, read on!No start on a rainy day
If your Alfa Romeo seems to be working fine on a dry day but won’t start when it’s raining, it’s likely that the distributer cap has moisture inside. Fortunately, this is not disastrous and will not require a huge amount of repair work from a mechanic. All that is involved in the service is using solvent to evaporate moisture from the unit.
If you think you can carry out this job and know where your distribution cap is, it is essential that you keep the following points in mind.
This is the easiest job to self-diagnose and complete without the help of a mechanic however the following issues should be referred onto a professional should you see these symptoms in your own Alfa Romeo.
There is no way of knowing what could be causing you an issue so it is essential that you have a mechanic assess your car asap. If yourAlfa Romeo battery has died this will be an easier problem to resolve as all that is required is a jump from another vehicle.
If you need to jump start your Alfa Romeo due to a dead battery, follow these instructions. However, don’t forget to have your vehicle checked by a mechanic even if a jump start works.
If the engine starts, brilliant! Take a drive around as this will recharge the battery.v
If it doesn’t, go back and make sure the cables are all attached properly and let the other car run for five minutes or so.
If the Alfa Romeo still won’t start, then it is likely your car has a major issue that you should get a mechanic to look as soon as possible.
