Perfect service! Thank you Daniel! £95 asagreed for interim service!
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
The service was just as advertised. A price including car pickup cost was agreed over the phone. Mike picked the car up from the house on the Thursday night, leaving his car, as agreed. He performed the MOT on Friday morning and called me to discuss the advisory points. He dropped the car off on Friday afternoon. The one improvement I would recommend is that the communication could be better between the job being accepted and the appointment date to give the customer peace of mind that they haven't been forgotten. That said, this appointment went well and I would definitely recommend and use his services again in future.
Great service, very knowledgeable personel. Would definitely go back if needed. Thank you Mike
Michael was brillant quick to the point and easy to understand. Highly recommended and will be using him for life
very helpful and poilte gentleman
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
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
Did not use the garage
Very good service
Extremely pleased with the service I received. As girl it's difficult to find a genuine garage but this place really felt comfortable it was all professional and no 'funny business'. I really appreciate all the help.
Good service, very friendly and helpful. Would recommend!
Excellent DPF work within time.
I was Happy with the job they done
Clear and prompt responses from the garage when I was working through quotes. Had all brake discs and pads replaced plus a full service. Booking made swiftly, and work carried out quickly and without fuss, worry or hidden extras. And they offer a collection and return service if you live within a certain range. I'll definitely be using them for all work going forward. Thanks Nadim!
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.

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.
