Service was perfect, got my car picked up and I knew I had a lot of work to get done. It was done with no fuss and delivered back the next day. Highly recommend.
Helpful staff and returned car quickly
Really good company. Efficient, courteous, good price. How it should be with other garages but often isn't. Will definitely use again.
2nd time using the garage and very happy again, no issues at all can’t fault them! I will be continuing to use and recommend, thank you.
Professionals and on time as usual
Clutch went and they managed to fit us in short notice. Got it dropped off last thing and replacement was done next day. Good price and sorted quickly. Would recommend.
top class service nice people to deal with sent me updated photos and kept the old parts to show me they even did another little job for me and did'nt charge me would'nt hesitate to use them again.
I had previously used WhoCanFixMyCar and was initially a bit cautious about using a garage from the site again after a bad experience elsewhere. However, when I needed a new cambelt and began looking for ballpark quotes I came across Merseyside Car Repairs LTD. The reviews seemed almost universal in their praise of the garage (both on the site and elsewhere) so I decided to take a punt; I couldn’t be happier that I did! Jay and from the garage was great to deal with. He was really knowledgeable and provided an excellent level of service from the off. When I dropped the car off he asked how I was getting to work across the water. He then took the time to drive me to the ferry station. Once work began I was sent regular updates with photos of the progress. I chose to have the car serviced at the same time as it was an absolute bargain. In the end, the cost of the work even ended up being £50 cheaper than my original quote. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this garage and have already done so to friends.
Excellent job ,great little place
I am fortunate enough to live on the side of the Wirral Peninsular where people live longer than on the side which has been neglected by national and local government. As such, I am guilty of forgetting what the more 'industrial' side of the Wirral can offer and have used the same local garage with CH47 postcode for 3 decades. So I decided to do something different when it came to replacing the Cambelt and water pump on my car. I'd never used the WCFMC website before so I tried it and 3 quotes came back, with MCR's being in the middle tier. I also needed a service so asked for a quote on that and they came back with a pleasing price. After I'd left my car with them and gone to work, I started to wonder whether I'd done the right thing not going to my usual place. But reminding myself the reviews were good, I stopped worrying. There was nothing to worry about whatsoever! As soon as they were into the job they sent me pics and a video via WhatsApp. Never, have I had this sort of communication from a garage and it was a brilliant move on their part. They kept me informed all the way and asked me if I wanted to change the fan-belt at the same time as it was cracking. They even detected a fault with my DPF filter under diagnostics, but rather than it being an expensive fix, they narrowed it down to a corroded earth wire. They also sent me more pics of them fixing this. Now my car is running far more smoothly and the economy is back to what it was 2 years ago. These guys really know their stuff and I would not hesitate recommending them or going back there. My regular garage would have been way more expensive, so more fool me for not taking a leap of faith into the unknown years ago.
The initial estimate was based on a new gearbox, however, I decided to also get them to replace my Clutch at the same time. The job was completed very professionally and updates provided on progress. First rate job done and the car is running brilliantly.
Done as expected
Superb service, finally found a reliable local garage. and 40% cheaper than two other local garages!
Clutch was replaced and works a treat
Excellent garage and excellent service what more can you ask for car needed a new calliper as well as the disc and pads garage Car was picked up and dropped off . This is not the first time I’ve used Thornton autos highly recommend such good service
Great service and goid machanic
Absolutely delighted with the first class service I received today. James and the team took my car in for an MOT which I urgently needed doing and it was back with me within a couple of hours. I found them professional, friendly and the over all price with repairs was fantastic. I would not hesitate to go there again. Thanks.
got seen within 5 mins of arrival by the Paul the mechanic, was told it would be about 1 /1.5 hrs but only took around half an hour, was talked through tbe work carried our, would recommend 100%
I'm happy... thanks
Excellent service. Price was what was quoted will definitely use this garage again. Thank you.
Friendly staff and quick to respond to queries. They even helped me replace my rear reg plate, as the screws had rusted and couldn't remove them. I was provided with a classic fiesta courtesy car which was great fun! I had my cambelt and water pump replaced on a Focus ST 225, the car is running well since. Will definitely consider using for further work.
Aircon regas change of 2 stop bulbs,,,,good and honest service.
Great service I was kept up to date when more work needed doing, would definitely recommend
Would definitely recommend them to anyone
Really good customer service. There was am unexpected fault found on my car when it was taken in for cam belt replacement which I paid extra for the part but the labour was free. They kept me updated throughout and even managed to sort me a little run around car at short notice as my car was undriveable and I needed to get to work. Customer service was brilliant. As soon as they received the new part required for my car it was fitted immediately and ready for collection later that day.
Excellent job ,will be def using again
small friendly garage who you can trust

Hi took a Ford Fiesta mk6 1.4 zetec in for a timing belt change, convenient local garage, good job can feel difference in way engine runs, many thanks to the mechanics, happy.
Very good convenient service delivered at my local work car park.
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.
