The garage wasn't able to find the issue but never the less gave a brilliant service. Collected and dropped off my car and was sensitive to the fact I couldn't be without the car, i'm a single parent with 3 small children
I had a positive experience when I used DB's Service and Tuning. The service I received from Desio and his team was second to none, the customer care was excellent, the price was reasonable and my car was repaired quickly. If you are looking for an honest, friendly and helpful mechanic, Desio's your man.
I recently had issues with my vehicle initially thinking that the gearbox required repair and replacement. I took my car to DB’s Service and Tuning and was quoted an initial estimate for repair. The gentlemen Decio, identified the cause of the problem to be a broken right hand side engine mount, resulting in the engine falling on one side affecting the ability to engage reverse gear. I was promptly provided with a new estimate for new parts and labour receiving a very descriptive email inclusive of pictures of the engine. The parts quoted were VW products, so I searched for alternatives on Euro Car Parts website in an attempt to lower the price. I was unsuccessful in finding any alternatives which reassured me that the price of the quite was not inflated. My vehicle was repaired and was ready for collection the next day. I could have had the car back the same day but I caused a slight delay in the commencement of the works when researching the option of alternative parts. I was very satisfied with the service provided, Decio was very thorough when explaining the issues affecting the vehicle. Decio advised that he worked for VW for a number of years and he took the time to advise me on other minor issues that required attention. I would highly recommend DB’s for vehicle repair, I shall certainly be taking my vehicle for a MOT and service in October 14.

Excellent customer service and I was kept fully informed by the manager, Peter, throughout. Very competitve pricing and the quality of work appears very good. Obviously, time will tell, but I will definitely be going back as and when the need arises I was even taken to and collected from the railway station. Not many offer that level of service.
I was very pleased with the job they did on my Honda and would definitely recommend.
Very happy with service, thought staff were friendly and honest. Work was carried out as asked and quote was near enough spot on.

Great service, showed me all parts and faults and explained it to me. Would recommend
Ended up getting all brake pads changed for £210. Very helpful and polite and was done quickly with no fuss. Very happy with the service provided!
The service I received was excellent. To have my car picked up from work and dropped back to me in time before I finished took a weight of my mind. The job was completed as described and Patrick even helped me with another niggling problem free of charge. I wouldn't hesitate to use this garage again.
Very happy, price ended up being cheaper than what was orginally quoted.

Your brakes are extremely important to the safe operation of your vehicle. The job of your brakes is to bring your car to a stop as quickly as possible and if they are not working correctly, the stopping distance will increase and the likeliness of a collision will increase.
Brakes are made up of many different components and repairs could be needed on any one of them. Brakes consist of Brake Calipers, Brake Discs, Brake Pads, Brake Fluid and the Handbrake. The brake calipers squeeze the brake pads against the disc, this creates friction that prevents the disc from spinning and thus the wheels stop moving. New brakes cost different amounts depending on your car, manfacturers will recommend different parts for different cars. Depending on your vehicle, different components will be used. For example, larger vehicles will use discs with ventilation as there is a greater build up of heat when stopping a larger vehicle. Because of this costs will vary from vehicle to vehicle.
The brakes on the front of the car usually contribute the most to bringing a car to a stop as the weight of the car is thrown forward each time the vehicle stops.
Different vehicle have different brake systems and use slightly different parts.
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.
A brake change can vary in cost depending on what exactly you are having done but the average price is around £180. A brake pad replacement will cost less than replacing brake pads and discs. This is because the cost of brake pads is less than the cost to replace brake pads and brake discs. Brake discs replacement is more expensive because the brake discs cost more than brake pads and usually brake pads are changed at the same time brake discs are changed.
New brake pads can vary in price depending on the brand used, so make sure you ask your mechanic what brand of parts they are using. Remember, cheapest is often not the best!
A brake service is offered by some garages and often comprises of a quick check of all the components involved with powering your brakes before concluding whether or not replacing brake pads, brake discs or both is the best course of action. Often a brake service will cost you nothing but can cost a small amount for the garages time. But if the garage finds a problem, they will often waive the brake service cost if you have the worked completed with them. The brake repair cost is what makes it worthwhile the garage waiving the fee for the brake service.
