Professional , quick , reasonable price. Job done on time with no any hidden costs . Highly recommended
Great service, thanks
Booking was super easy and I had received the response in no time. The best part was car collection as due to my location and limited public transport availability it's not easy to come back home and go later to collect the car after service. Hence, collection service was boon for me. The service done seems to be very good and only necessary parts were replaced in spite of me insisting on changing the discs along with brake pad they suggested not to change the discs as it's not needed hence I liked that bit where other garages make money on these things but I liked an honest approach of the garage to change only the brake pads and the prices was quite reasonable too. Hence, I would certainly go back to them for next years Service & MOT work as the prices were competitive too.
Accidentally bought the car in early but they still did it that same day, and informed me that I didn't actually need the water pump doing as well as the cambelt. They also did an oil change for me which was an extra £50. Overall great service.
Very friendly and cooperative
Good MOT experience and nice guys
Very prompt response to my request for work, and pleased with the quality of the work done and competitiveness of the quote. The job was delayed by one day through no fault of the garage as a gasket had not been provided with the fitting kit. However, I was not charged extra. The car was collected and delivered back to my doorstep - great service!
Really great service, friendly staff and completed within an hour!
Brilliant service, quick and no hidden costs - I’ll be back!
Excellent service again well recommended

Highly recommend!! Actually I want to give 5 stars for the whole experience but 4 stars as I haven't driven vehicle much after the repair.
Thoroughly recommend, very good service and friendly with it!
Happy customer. Job was done in few minutes(engine diagnostic run). There was no need to replace the part at this time(lambda sensor).Very straightforward. I paid £20 furthermore I was offerd this amount to be deducted from total at next service in case the part has to be replaced. Thank you.
Very good service. My car was picked up and dropped off to plan and the old parts were shown to me to demonstrate that the cambelt and water pump had been changed. Communication was excellent, very quick response to questions.
Fantastic service, very informative, no problem in picking and dropping back the car. Definitely use again.
The service that I received was great! The price was very competitive and the job was completed before schedule. I would highly recommend Complete Mechanics and I'll go back to them myself if needed.
Thanks Gary and Your mate, Came and collected the car Tues afternoon and bought it back Tues evening wasn`t expecting it to be so quick A******** Will use again.
Brilliant and helpful had brakes and discs done rear and back all done with in hours . Car was collected and dropped back to me . Thanks so much Gary
Gary and his team provided me with an excellent service and I would have no hesitation in using his service again or in recommending Complete Mechanics to others.
I had my interim service done today. Friendly staff and great service for less than half of what Halfords quoted me, and a quarter of what Toyota charged me for the previous service. I highly recommend Ash Autos!
Guys were helpful and polite..and job done to a high standard. Definitely recommend
MOT arranged for us then work to pass added to the original job - all completed the same day. Great service from a great company. Couldn't ask for more.
Andy was a top bloke, coming out on the same day and fixing up my clutch - getting it back to me that afternoon. More than fairly priced - would definitely recommend
A great service at a great price....the guys are lovely and will be taking my other car to them in the near future to have some work done. Huge
Absolutely fantastic service - quick, pleasant, honest advise, very fairly priced - all round great experience - highly recommended !!

Very friendly,very efficient and a will certainly use Top Autos for my future servicing and any faults that may occur on my car. Many Thanks.
Great service, great price car was collected and returned same day .
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.
We have written a brake price comparison guide if you want to learn more.
If you want a good brake pad deal, you can compare quotes from garages near you by entering you details at the top of the page.
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.
If you want to know how brakes work, we have created a dedicated guide.
There are several obvious signs that your brake pads and discs are not operating properly. If your car is taking much longer to come to a stop, it will be clear that there is a problem with your brakes.
