Fantastic service, exactly what a garage should do. Couldnt ask any more of them if im honest! Totally recommended to everyone.
Ouick response, good price and service
Quote was £60 cheaper than elsewhere. They fitted us in at short notice as the brakes needed replacing badly. Fast turnaround, excellent job. Will definitely come back for MOT and any additional future work.
My final price went up as I had a few extras done at my choice. I have got to say I was amazed by the service. I don’t normally leave feedback but these guys warrant it. Was originally booked in to get my work done on Saturday morning. The guys rang me on the day before while at work, offered to come and pick up my car, do the work and then dropped my car back to me at work. Massively impressed at the service! Will be recommending them to friends in the future for sure.
the quote was originally for front and rear discs and pads. but when i arrived Simon said the quote was for the pads only. he stated if i wanted the discs done also it would cost around £400 approx. i was not totally happy with this but agreed to pads only. i would like an explanation as to quote for a total job then go back on it.
Lovely staff, and helped a lot with the car. Would use them again
Does what it says on the tin

These guys stepped in last minute and had my van back in 24hrs , even lent me a car . Good communication informing me how much and how quickly they could get it done. They also checked my vehicle over and advised me on things that'll need doing , an honest appraisal. Good stuff .
Excellent service highly recommended
Very fast completing the job. Very friendly service! Curtsey car given too! Very happy with the service I received! Thank you guys
Really good, quick and professional service. Fully explained the extras required to complete the job and I got my car back within 24 hours
Recommended - Car went through MOT with just a couple of advisories, all justified. I was a little worried that as a first time customer it could have been an opportunity to try and get extra business for work that wasn't necessary (due to past experience with less than honest garages), but that definitely wasn't the case here and i'll be returning here for any future work needed to my car.
We are very pleased with the work that was carried out and woùld recommend kam to anyone
Happy with the service

Professional service, rang me before under taking additional work. I will be using them again.
Great service, great price. will use again.
Reliable and honest, I’d been advised of work needed by a different garage but MP said not and proved it, could easily have done the work and charged but was honest and reliable and this is why we go back again and again!
Phil at MP automotive really helped us out when my Daughters car broke down, we were very impressed with his whole attitude and customer friendly approach,he gets the done job as economical as possible and also gets you your car back with no delays. I have to congratulate MP automotives and I can genuinely say I would recommend anyone to use MP automotive. Thank you Phil Darren

Mechanic arrived on time. Got on with work. Made fantastic job.. Would certainly use them again without any hesitation.
The job was completed in the stated time , and i was shown the exchanged parts without having to ask to see them
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.
