Friendly, fast service, done while I waited, I am more than happy and would use these guys again.
The pick up and collection service was very good as I was kept informed, There was a slight problem with the service light not going off but the garage picked the car back up and sorted this. As a way off an apology they cleaned my car inside and out which I was very happy with. I would recommend this garage to my friends and family.
Excellent service. Called on the day of posting to discuss the work to be undertaken. They were able to see me that afternoon to carry the work out, which was convenient for me. Work was carried out quickly. Highly recommend.
Everything was brilliant
Patric is a great man he knows what he is doing plus he good at his word
Quote was very reasonable compared with the dealership I have been using. Patrick collected car, did job and called me when he was leaving to return it. All done , no hassle. Nice guy, will be giving him another job to do in the next 2 weeks, Well pleased up to now, would recommend
Patrick had been servicing my Audi R8 for three years now, and in this time he has provided me with consistent first-class customer care. My car (a 2008 V8) has had a number of common faults, including front shock absorber failure, a coolant leak and oil leaks. Using his contacts and expertise, Patrick has fixed all of these faults with OEM parts, at big discounts over what a main dealer would charge. The most recent repair involved replacing the sump tray, which had distorted due to heating/cooling and was leaking oil. This is a specialist job which an Audi dealer with have charged at least two to three times what I paid to repair. Patrick is always true to his word - a real gem in the unreliable world of motoring!
Patrick is a lovely gentleman, very trustworthy and honerable. Bless him!
Absolutely fantastic, recommend!
I can only endorse the 5/5 feedback that Fabio has previously received. I made contact with regards to the replacement of cam belt assembly for my Audi TT. Fabio responded very quickly with a very competitive estimate. On the day, he arrived on time, carried out the work effectively, was more than happy that I watched (only out of pure interest) explaining to me what he was doing at various times. Once completed, he completely tided the area. We will certainly be contacting Fabio when our cars require routine servicing and/or other work and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.
Big Thankyou to Fabio, replaced Cambelt on our Fiesta today, arrived as agreed and completed the work in a matter of hours. Very impressed with the service, which included changing the water pump and ancillary belt in the price quoted, unlike some other garages. All work completed at my home address. Fabio was also happy to discuss other issues I had with the car and suggested probable causes/solutions. Would definitely recommend Motortech, was also given a quote for a Full service on my Fiesta and will be using Motortech again in the future.
Great, friendly, professional service. Only took an hour or so to sort the problem and the final price was even just a touch under the quote. Would recommend.
Nice guy, convient as did at my house as couldnt get out. Honest and told me I didnt need new discs. Did a good job at a good price, will be using again.
Trading as Motortech Mobile Mechanic, Fabio can trusted to carry out the work & is very efficient at both quotes & when working on the job. Delighted to have found somebody like Fabio and he really does deserve 5 stars. Competitive pricing too.
Very pleased with the service, found Mike very helpful.
Only managed to do half the job due to lack of the correct tools, then charged me 50% more than original price, even after I double checked that price wasn’t going to go up Won’t be using them again as I’ve now got get the job completed by a professional and competent garage
I had a problem with my car last night and Mike was in touch straight away with a reasonable quote. By 11am today the problem was resolved. I would highly recommend Autosolutions to all my friends and family. Great service and very honest people. Thanks again, Mike!
Requested work - an oil and filter change was carried out smoothly & efficiently and while I waited (as agreed at the time of the booking). The cost was also very competitive. Laura, the receptionist, was very helpful and knowageable as was the mechanic who was also very thorough.
Very good service, friendly, quick and excellent price
Absolutely brilliant service from start to finish, could not fault any aspect. Only a small job but still very important to me. Friendly staff. Changed my wing mirror as asked and also then removed friction mark from other side of wing mirror for me, now looks as good as new. Would definitely recommend and will use again if and when I have a problem with my car. Thank you ever so much.
Another good job done by this garage with a competitive quote. Due to working in Birmingham centre I was able to take my car in at the end of the day and leave it overnight ready for fixing the next day. Garage kept in touch with work required and updated me when job was done. The job was finished as requested on time and seems fine. So I would recommend this garage again. They always respond quickly to messages when using the wcfmc site so nice and handy too.
Kris,the Workshop Manager was polite and Proffesional. Although I had an issue with the car after the Timing Belt had been replaced,Stevie, one of the Technicians, plugged in the Diagnostics Unit and came up with potential remedies. He found the cause and secured the remedy, so I could leave the Workshop with a problem free running car. I am happy to recommend this Garage.
Great prompt , friendly and professional
Awesome service, picked up work done and dropped off at my work, cheapest quote and paid over the phone highly recommended! ☺
Excellent service! Super quick and very helpful and really cheap!
Absolutely brilliant, did a great job
Great service and friendly mechanics will use again if and when required
Top team at Mongers. After a spurious recommendation to get alternator replaced, headed to Mongers and heeded their advice to bring the car in for a full battery / alternator diagnostic check. End result; they showed me the result(s) whilst they were actually carrying out the check and guess what? no need to replace alternator! No charge either - second-to-none service. Would recommended Mongers without hesitation.
Very polite friendly service kept me well informed all the time
Found the lads helpful and informative.... No work was carried out without informing me ... deffo would recommend this garage ... and I will use them again

Here are some of the most common signs that your alternator is on the blink:
The average alternator repair cost is between £250 and £300, depending on the car you drive, so it’s important you make sure you find the best deal. And that’s where we can help.
An alternator is a generator of electric power in your car and is a major component of your vehicle's charging system.
Whenever your engine is running, the alternator charges your battery and supplies additional electric power for the vehicle's electrical systems.
An alternator is attached to the engine and is driven by a drive belt (also known as a serpentine belt).
The alternator is a vital part of the electrical system as it delivers the power necessary to keeping energy running through the system.
If your alternator has failed, your car battery will soon lose power.
Alternator problems can be a major problem because a car cannot actually start without power in the battery. This is because the starter motor requires electricity to get the engine going.
Starter motor repair can be included in an alternator repair though it may have to be replaced if there has been a serious electrical problem caused from a broken alternator.
On average, an alternator can last for 8-12 years without any repairs. If an alternator fails, the car may still run on battery power alone for a short time, but will die as soon as the battery charge is depleted.
Replacing an alternator with a new unit is quite expensive, though alternator prices will change depending on the vehicle.
Alternator price is shown at the top of this page when it comes to the average cost, however, the only way to get accurate know how much is an alternator repair, is by entering your details in the box above.
