Great service, honest communication and competitive price. Well done to Svmcitt and the team. However, the final cost was £559 versus a quote of 362 by Whocanfixmycar. Issue is that there are a number of disc sizes and the quote default provides a smaller size than those in my car. Given the differential in price there has to be a more accurate method of estimation so that the customer can select the right garage and be aware of a more realistic cost. There is no issue with D&G as they worked hard to minimise the cost. Whocanfixmycar need to put in place a better system to help the customer. Over to you whocanfixmycar.
The price and service was very good.
Went in for MOT. Told me that there was a fault and therefore would fail. Did a diagnostic check for free and recommended places to fix electrical faults. Friendly place.
Prompt and professional service - took the car within the day and completed the work the following day. Found and corrected a fault which two other car repairers couldn’t find (one being a Skoda sales and service organisation). Final price included four new tyres which weren’t in the original quote.
Friendly and professional.
Craig was incredibly helpful from the first moment of contact - cheery, positive and flexible. Not only did he sort my wing mirror at the price he said he would, but cleaned the side of the car which had been damaged in the same incident, for no extra price. I would highly recommend Steins garage and the staff there for a friendly, professional and easy repair experience.
Couldn't be more pleased with the service from Steins Garage and dealing with Craig. Top class service and work done to my car. Very quick turnover! Would recommend to anyone who needs their car fixed
Cracking work. Craig was fantastic in his communication and made me fully aware of the work completed and the reasoning behind it. Needed a new caliper in the end which was unfortunate but the price came in under quote. So nice to find a garage that isn't trying to pull your pants down at any opportunity. I'll definitely be back. Thanks Craig and the team.
Great service, professional approach. Very satisfied. I will be back in the future.
Amazing service, they gave me good advice and fix my car for less than expected. The guys are very busy, no wonder why.
Great garange, shame it is gone now
Done quickly and to budget
Work carried out on time and charged what they quoted.
Although I was advised prior to booking that the cost was different from quote received it still cost extra. Overall experience though was very good. Service completed on time and car was washed and vacuumed.
Great service as usual
Excellent service. Flexible time to drop off and pick up car.
Excellent service. Would use again and recommend
Nice stuff, happy of results.
Dealt with the MOT and service like professionals and talked me through what the car was needing work on after having been unfortunately neglected by me. Any issues that popped up after they were happy to have a look at for no additional charge!
Excellent friendly service. Stuart very helpful. Would definitely recommend this garage and would use it again.
Good service, honoured the quote on this website, would use again.
Staff were very friendly + helpful, couldn’t fault them will definitely use them again and I will most definitely recommend them.
Did what they said they would do and ready when I requested it
Brilliant, flexible and efficient. Pete is a lovely guy and was so easy to work with. So much easier than dropping the car to a garage, cannot be more convenient. I met Pete in town as I was going work, he done the job and dropped the keys off to me. Thanks again Pete.
Great job done and nice guy!
Car fixed less than 24hrs after contacting Pete and he done it within the hour, very impressed.
Pete couldn't fix my car due to ceased engine caused by water damage but he tried everything. Can't fault him - very polite, very helpful and very professional.
Excellent service, cane to my door as arranged and talked through everything he was doing. Friendly and easy going.
Prompt service, very please. It was lovely to have the car picked up and dropped off. Turned out I didn't need my cambelt done which was a great relief
Solid garage, full service and cambelt change for less than £550. Will use them again.
Was a bit more expensive but I went the whole hog and got the timing belt kit in stalled rather than just the timing belt. Collected the car from my front door, kept me informed by text and phone (when things were not going to plan) as to the progress, cleaned outside & in and returned back to my front door. Perfect, wished all companies were this attentive to detail, Mark, their service manager, is a credit to this company. Would use again.
Went ahead after re-negotiating original quote which was lower due to water pump renewal not being included. Very fair price agreed, job done without any issues and staff friendly and informative. Happy to recommend
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.
