Very helpful and obliging owner with pleasant and efficient mechanic. Many thanks to both.
Efficient, well-priced and professional. They collected and dropped my car within a few hours and sent me photos of the job required for servicing (oil being drained etc). I'd recommend them to everyone! Thanks Inderjit.
Not so good at calling back. But did the job as promised
The whole roof and the top of the car has been repaired and repainted. Very quick turnaround and really good quality job.
The location is a bit difficult to find and next to very narrow road The workers look busy, so I needed to wait a bit The repair work itself is no problem and the price is cheaper than the other garages
Fantastic work done once again. Completed bodywork to a fantastic standard within 3 days. Extra spray job done for free aswell. Best in north west London

This was the first time I used "whocanfixmycar.com" and Todaton Garage. I only selected Todaton as they were close by. Once my BMW X4 was dropped off, I was given regular updates on the progress, and also had the opportunity to speak directly to the knowledgeable technician . I was assured no parts or repairs would take place without my approval. The fault issue was identified (EGR value was malfunctioning) and new EGR value installed. Car was returned back to normal. Highly recommend Costa, Majid and the team!
Very polite, quick service with no fuss
honest clear and competent I would use them again
All straightforward, work completed
Great service and price. BMW 5 Series, full service & MOT reasonable price. I strongly recommended. Thanks again

Fantastic Job. Sorted out the issues with the lights and the advice given to clear the blockage worked a treat.
Great service, arrived on time and very friendly. Will definitely use again!
Very friendly and helpful garage.
Friendly people excellent service. Just to get out of the garage can be tricky. Thanks.
It was a pleasant surprise as it turned out that I don't have broken coil springs. Still, they raised the car up and cleaned it thoroughly then re-greased the parts that needs lubrication. I had a plastic shield missing two screws, they fixed that as well. After further inspection I got a list of things to do in the future. It is a very friendly garage and I wholeheartedly recommend them! Thanks guys!
Very friendly and quick service, I recommend 100%
Honest people. Reliable. Good service.
This garage was brilliant. They saw me the next day as I was in a rush and had the work completed within an hour. They have competitive prices and are thoroughly professional. I'd highly recommend this garage.
I was really pleased with the overall service I received from - Mobile Mechanics and Tyres I was kept in the loop at all times. My vehicle was picked up and dropped off as expected with the work completed as I asked for. There was a nail in one of my back tyres and this was repaired as well. I have no hesitation in recommending Mobile Mechanics and Tyres. The quality of work is high and priced competitively.
Great Service. After being unable to make first appointment he picked the car up and returned it to me on the same day on a bank-holiday. Also
Really, really good mechanic who goes out of his way to help you. Very genuine and has even helped me since repairing my brakes as I broke down. I've now moved out of the area but shall continue to use and recommend him.

A brake, or brake pad is a system that safely enables a car to stop. Brakes get rid of the kinetic energy that helps the car move, which is done by using force of friction to convert this motion of energy into heat. Your car's braking system is made up of the following components: Brake discs, which spin with your car's wheels, Brake Pads, which push on the discs to slow the car, Brake Calipers which hold, and push, the pads, Brake Lines (or 'Hoses') which carry Brake Fluid, and your Brake Master Cylinder and Servo, which work to amplify the effort you use when pushing the brake pedal. Wear or failure of any one of these components will cause braking problems, requiring repair.
Modern cars have brakes on all four wheels which are operated by a hydraulic system and are made up of several components all of which are subject to stress which could result in breakage.
The front brakes in a car are typically the ones which play the greater part in bringing a car to stop as the weight of the car is thrown forward every time the vehicle comes to a stop.
There are different systems used for braking from one car to the next which suits the needs of the vehicle size and function.
The common hydraulic system uses fluid to apply pressure to pistons in the car close to its wheels to bring the car to a halt.
Some cars also have power brake assistance which helps to reduce the amount of effort required to apply stopping power.
If you need to have your brakes repaired there are several issues that could have caused the problem and several things that could be affected.
If you suspect you need your brakes repaired but your car is still drivable, there are some symptoms which could give you clues as to what the problem is.
The brakes are often the noisiest part of a car if there is an issue which means you should be able to hear a problem which cannot be said of many other broken car parts. Therefore, noticing the need for a car brake repair should be obvious. But you can check faulty brake symptoms here.
Brake pads are a critical component of a car and a vehicle cannot come to a halt without them functioning properly. Brake pads are fitted to the brake calipers which push the pads into the brake discs which are fitted to a car wheel. When a car is moving, the pads grip the discs to slow down the wheel and thus slow the car down.
A high amount of heat energy is created from the resulting friction as explained above and over time, this will wear brake pads down.
Brake pad replacement is a common job, the work to remove a worn-down-set is not complex so if you require a brake pad replacement, the repair will not be a lengthy one.
If you would like to understand how to tell when your brakes need servicing read our dedicated guide.
Brake discs are fitted to the car wheel itself and they are gripped by the brake pads.
Brake discs replacement is more expensive; the parts are more expensive than pads. Often pads are placed at the same time the discs are replaced.
If a mechanic advises you to replace your brake discs, they will likely suggest replacing the pads at the same time due to a the low cost of the part and the little extra labour time needed.
The cost of brake pad replacement may vary depending on the car make and model. This is because there are different sizes of brake pads and the cost increases as they get bigger. For example, a Land Rover will require a bigger set of brake pads as opposed to a Fiat Punto.

If you specifically require brake disc replacement, the work will take a similar amount of time to a brake pad replacement.
However, as highlighted above, the cost will be more expensive that pads due to the parts pricing.
Brake pads are changed by removing the wheel and unscrewing the bolts which hold the part in place. The part is then simply taken off the brake caliper and a new brake pad is fitted. The same process will be applied for each of the pads that need to be replaced.
There are many other common issues which can arise with the braking system which are not connected to brake pads and discs issues. The brake lines are susceptible to leakage as brake fluid can leak from the system if rust is untreated. The master cylinder is also a part of the braking system which can become faulty. If you would like to understand more we have a dedicated page for brake repairs.
