Great service. Needed a sill welding to pass MOT and the work was done to a good standard. Price was only higher than online quote as inspection was needed for a full quote.
Need other work done so I will be returning
If I could give a marking of 6 I'd do so. Very very capable and put the car through it's paces big time in difficult circumstances! Flagged up all the relevant problems, spotted where the engine bay had been steam cleaned to hide oil leak evidence, picked up the steering rack problem and loose engine mount on the test drive, dead battery on a static test and so much more. If you're buying a used car in the Cardiff area - these are the guys to take! Thank you!

Friendly, professional I would highly recommend the company
Good service, explained the work clearly, fair price.
I recently had 4 tyres changed and the fitter noticed that I had some uneven wear on all tyres. I used City Service Centre to align all 4 wheels, and I can’t fault the service one bit! Very prompt to reply, carried out the job on short notice and the job took less than an hour. Very happy customer.
It was my first experience with City Service Centre, upon first contacting the garage I received first class communications and superior service I was overwhelmed at the extremely professional and prompt service. My car was on the road again within hours, the cost for parts and labour were minimal. Thank you City Service Centre and to Justin for all your help and time. One extremely satisfied customer.

Great service, job done on time. Taken home having dropped the car off and collected when job completed.
Really good guys, great communication and amazingly fast work!
Outstanding service. As Saab specialists they have undoubtedly saved me 50% of any final costs a non specialist garage would have charged for a snapped cambelt. So polite, efficient and above all caring. I shall be using them for all my Saab needs in the future.

The cambelt is a rubber belt which controls the timing of a vehicle’s internal combustion engines. It is vital in the process of making the vehicle run smoothly as it also ensures the crankshaft and camshaft rotate in synchronisation.
A snapped cambelt is uncommon however tension issues are more widespread.
If the belt is too loose it will end up whipping around inside the engine which will cause a variety of knock on effects and if the belt is too tight it will put a strain on the bearings of the cogs it's fitted to.
A tight belt will cause a whining noise to be emitted from the engine so if you hear this sound make sure to book a repair as soon as possible. You shouldn’t wait until this happens though, as the damage caused by a faulty cambelt will end up costing you even more money in repairs.
As you will see in the FAQ section and video above, the cost of a cambelt repair can vary depending on the vehicle and garage. The biggest cost associated with this job type will be the labour itself.
This is because the parts are based deep within the engine and getting to them takes time. The components themselves won’t cost you a huge amount as they are not complex so don’t be surprised to see labour costs making up the biggest part of the bill.
Even if your cambelt doesn’t completely break its important to keep an eye on the component as per the instructions provided by your cars manufacturer, if you leave it for too long, the belt could snap and cause catastrophic engine failure.
The cambelt will need replacing at some point, usually around the 30,000 – 50,000 mile mark but make sure to consult the vehicles owner’s manual to double check as it may vary depending on the vehicle.
