Really happy with Fast Fit, had a diagnostic and subsequent wheel bearing changed. The team were super accommodating completing my work before i needed my car. The receptionist was charming, and didn't charge for the diagnostic either. overall a really pleasant experience. Will definately return!!
Reasonable price! Had my wee Twingo moted and serviced (+ a fix). Everything was arranged easily. Friendly guy called me to confirm a fix, had my car ready on time. I will go again for sure!
great service, great customer service, great advises. Thank you for waste your time listening my car's problems. I will come back again if I need you in the future!!
Excellent service, fast and helpful feedback too. They just fixed a couple things up and charged the price they said they would
Great team of experts
Such quick and efficient work from Adam at the garage. I was able to drop my car off that same day after thinking my head gasket had gone which is what I was told from another garage and i received my car back later that evening all fixed. However Adam found that my head gasket was fine and it was instead a different job that needed doing which costed me a whole lot less than what I thought I’d have to pay. Couldn’t recommend the garage enough!
I took my car into this garage for its yearly MOT and as a new driver with limited experience, I am really pleased with the quality, service and prices of this garage. Adam kept it real with me and was 100% honest which you don’t get at a lot of garages. Thanks again buddy.
Good customer service. Garage was easy to find. Did not rip me off. Was pleased with the work
Had my steering rack replaced at top gear. Customer services skills are fantastic and happy with the job done. It has the atmosphere of a friendly local garage where they will go out of there way to help you. I will be using them again for any future jobs. Highly recommend.
Very good service all round
Brilliant and quickly finished
Quick, professional and good priced. Would recommend.
The staff is friendly. The job was done pretty fast. In the quotation, it did said there are two years warranty for the clutch kit. I thought the job was covered by 2 years warranty. However till when the job was done, I realised that it only covered the clutch kit, not the whole job. That's something that is easy misunderstanging for customers. Also the warranty can only valid with a series of mileage check.
Brilliant work very happy at a reasonable prices
All fine, no problems
Excellent workmanship, very patient guys. Stored my car whilst I sourced the parts. Experts at panel alignment, dent removal and resprays. Definitely would recommend. 10/10 Thank you!
Friendly competent staff , good price for work
GREAT JOB! Can't believe the car looks like new. Both Dany and co were very polite and kept me informed every step of the way. Big job only took a couple of days. No question would recommend to any and everyone! Cheers Guys!!!
Good service. Just they didn’t give me receipt for the whole repair. I need to go there and ask for receipt as I need it for tax assessment.
Awesome service, and quick turn around.
Very happy with the service I received, kept to my time and price quoted. Evan cleaned the car. David.
Highly recommend. Very friendly staff, quick and efficient. As a bonus cleaned and washed my car, great coffee too! Very impressed. 5* service :)
I've just had an interim car service at Heartlands Autocenter. The customer service was brillant.The price paid for the service was also very reasonable. I will recommend the garage for anyone who may need an efficient and satisfying car servicing and repairs.
Highly Recommended. Pleased with the excellent service. Had the car wash and pick n drop service for free. A++
yes. The service was quick but even though I was told my was ready, it wasnt. When I turned up I had to wait another half hour to have the wipers changed. The person they had ordered the wipers from was late.
Very friendly and courteous. Prompt service. Got you back on the road in a reasonable time.
Quoted £375 for cambelt and that was final price. I was also quoted for water pump, brakes (all round) MOT and broken coil spring discovered during testing. Quotes were very good and having everything done at the same time there saved me a bit on labour costs. Overall i was very pleased with this garage, good customer care and great job done. Big THANK YOU to Tony and partner. Would recommend and call on again for more work.
Really good garage, diagnosed the problem was in and out in the same day defiantly be using them again!
The guys were fantastic. Came out on Bank holiday and spend around 4 hours thoroughly sorting my brakes out. Can't recommend them enough!
There was a confusion about the total cost but job was done nicely and in time.
Really good price, quick and efficient and great workmanship. Highly recommend and would definitely use these people again. Thanks very much.
Very pleased with the service that Jag offered. He was able to book me in quickly and did a good job. He was friendly and honest. I would 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.
