Absolutely fantastic service. I had some worries about a second-hand car I'd bought. The guys did a general check for me, as well as checking out some problems that I'd noticed. They picked up on a couple of things (brakes and a ball joint needed replacing), but they explained this in a very neutral way and did not put pressure on me to buy at any point. I decided to go ahead with the work, they did this at a discount and did not even charge me for some of the original work that I'd asked for. Overall, a great experience with an honest and friendly business.
Great experience. Really helpful and friendly staff,true example of professionalism , I will use their services again for sure.
Profesional and quick service.
The autowerke team was brilliant. My car is much smoother to drive after the service. They also quickly fixed an issue with the car air con.Highly recommended.
Friendly helpful service. Had some difficulty finding the garage and recommend the home pick up service.
Fast, efficient and honest. Very impressed with Daniel. Excellent five star service would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Daniel was professional and communication was great. He picked up the car, ran diagnostic, explained the issue and required repair and completed the work before returning the car same day. Highly recommend to others, 5 star service overall.

Daniel - wow!! He was accommodating to all of my various and sundry needs. The car was brought back to me sparkling and full of vavoom! Thank you -he was kind and patient - and delightful.
Great job, great communication, I would recommend for
Job well done. Very professional service
Needed my van for work, the dpf emmisions needed repairing. His efficiancy was invaluable. Mike contacted me after an enquiry online. Efficient service and reliable. My van now back on the road so I can work for my buisness . Mike accommodated the times I requested to book my van in so I could get the van back on the road . Highly recommend this garage
As expected, it was not a regs issue. The heater motor had blown and needed to be replaced. Mike is incredibly busy, but was very efficient and good at communicating and setting expectations. He stuck to timelines and have us prompt updates and did not force us to make decisions. He switched the motor and got the car back to working order in less than a day. Thank you for your help, it was much appreciated.
Mike was polite very customer focused and has a lot of pride in his work and I would recommend Sphinx vehicle repairs to everyone I’ll definitely be recommending them to my friends and family
Fantastic service. Contact was fast. They had next day availability. Picked up and returned the car within a few hours.
HAD TO CANCEL.
100% Recommend. The men that were working on my car were friendly and there was plenty of space to park my car. I had my baby with me and had to hang around the area for the duration, which they understood wasn't desirable, so they gave me priority. I put the car in at 9am and it was all done by 12pm (when they predicted it to be finished) and they found no issues with the car so only charged me the quote price. They were efficient, friendly and professional. All you need from a service and MOT.
Did everything that was asked, no problems.
Did an excellent job, Lukasz is very creative as a mechanic and I would happily use him again.
Fantastic! The guys from yourmobilegarage were brilliant! Arrived at a convenient time, completed the job efficiently and I have had no problems in almost a year. Fabulous value and great service- delighted!
Good knowledgeable mechanic. Diagnostic a bit expensive but work that required doing after was up to a good standard and good labour cost along with the sourcing of the parts. Would recommend.
I had parking sensors fitted to my Vauxhall Zafira car. Lucas came on time, was very friendly and professional. His standard of work is very good and he explains clearly what he is doing. He definitely does not cut corners and is very honest and reliable. His finishing is very good and neat and he does look after your car very well. Once the sensors were fitted he double checked everything to make sure it works ok. In conclusion Lucas is very reliable, good value and i would highly recommend people reading this review to go ahead and book him. 10 out of 10! Thanks Abdul
First time using this service. Incredibly easy to book. Fantastic experience. Will definately be using them again. Highly recommend giving them a try.
Very polite, quick service with no fuss
honest clear and competent I would use them again
All straightforward, work completed
Thank you Patrick and the team, I will definitely be back for my service soon.
Patrick came by promptly to replace my rear brake pads and discs first thing in the morning and had my car back by 12pm. The price was great and service was fantastic. Will be doing my MOT in mid January with these people, very reliable people.
Great service. Confirmed i didn't need front brakes changed so saved me money. Would recommend.
Highly recommend Mike. He was quick to respond, offered me a very competitive quote and was able to fit me in within 2 days of agreeing the quote. He explained the problem to me and was much more accommodating than my dealership. Will be returning for future work.

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.
