I have already sent my review, what happened to that one ?. Nevertheless, D&G autocare at southgyle are worth a second, it was a lot more than I expected to pay, but I knew somewhere along the road I would need this work done, so opted to take advice, get it checked, get it done, Kenny and the boys at southgyle were really helpful, very efficient and a professional approach, all that was missing was a cuppa & biscuits. I will certainly be back.
Friendly and helpful staff. Working at full capacity on a Saturday morning. Got the job done in time frame described. Reasonable price and good explanation.
The Price was exactly as quoted
Excellent customer service, very speedy repairs - cannot recommend enough!
I must say I am pleasantly surprised by the level of service this garage provides. They replied to my request first thing in the morning. I left my car around 10am and by end of day they had fully replaced my rusty and broken exhaust with a new one. Quote is perfectly reasonable if you take into account the price of the parts and the work required. Very helpful and friendly. Will recommend to anyone. Thank you very much!
Great service, thank you!
Good service, quick and was the price they quoted. Will definitely use again
Had a full service and MOT done - quoted £160 for that - had to have a bracket repaired/replaced on my exhaust - £30 - all works done in 3 and a half hours so very quick. Staff were friendly and informative too

Work carried out on time and charged what they quoted.
Although I was advised prior to booking that the cost was different from quote received it still cost extra. Overall experience though was very good. Service completed on time and car was washed and vacuumed.
The guys at QwikLube are incredible! I'd read glowing reviews and feedback and was expecting great service already but the guys went ahead and surpassed that!
It was a different problem as to what I was originally told. ..glow plugs and an injector seal great service as they did it straight away . Would definitely use them again .
An unexpected priblem occurred with the car and they were able to fix it in no time. Thanks very much
Great customer service, squeezed my car in although they were busy.
Great service, more importantly great attitude by everyone at Lynneburn, Dunfermline branch. There to help and get the job done properly.
Excellent service. Found a fault very quickly and had the van back that day. On driving off, the noise was still there so I phoned the garage. They told me to bring it back the next day which I did. I got a phone call at lunchtime advising they had fixed it and it was ready. Got a discount as the original fault wasn’t spotted at first. Will be very happy to use them again.
The guys at the garage done a excellent with regards to my puncture, it was done in a timely manner and was the price quoted. I'd like to recommend the garage and would be happy to use their services again.

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.
