Robert was very friendly, knowledgeable and reassuring. My brakes were replaced in a professional and timely manner. Very competitive price.
Repairs took longer than expected, but they also MOT'd the car without charge. Good result.
Excellent service. Rob and Adrian kept me informed of the work progress every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Oakley to anyone who needs any work done. Impressive and honest company which I very rare these days. Well done and keep up the excellent service you are a credit to your industry
Excellent service, did what they said they would.
Excellent service, knowledgeable with excellent customer service. Many thanks.
Fab garage, that fixed my car quickly and had me back on the road ASAP. Great mechanics too, who are straight forward and honest. Very impressed. A+++++++ We will be back
I needed a mechanic who was knowledgeable with a Volvo Auto gearbox. After performing a proper plugin diagnostic at £79 Jamie was confident that the issue's I was experiencing would be solved with a gearbox oil change and a gearbox reset. He described what was involved and estimated that It would be around £330 and it should take about 2-3 hours to do. In the end he had the car for a couple of days, it turned out to be one of those jobs that needed a very good understanding of Auto gearbox's and a lot of time and patience. The Final Invoice came in at £256.00. Jamie was very polite, friendly and patient, considering the amount of questions I kept throwing at him. I have no doubt he knows his stuff and would have no hesitation in recommending his services. Thanks for a job well done Jamie, I can now sell the car knowing I'm not passing on a problem to someone else.
Took my car to a few garages hybrid did everything no hassle car is great well done very pleased will recommend anyone will use them in the future
Jamie, Jim and all the team at Medway Hybrid Centre are very professional, honest and trustworthy mechanics that know what they are doing. Even though the problem with my car was a long and costly job to repair, Jamie was upfront and explained the problem to me. I have since been back for some more work and will not go anywhere else now. The customer service from these guys is also spot on.
Very pleased would recommend him to my friends pleasant and helpful
Good location in the town centre. Good customer service. Polite and efficient. Dropnof was easy and vehicle was ready on time. Everything I wanted.
Yes, I would recommend this garage, excellent service, from the beginning to the end.
Easy to park and set back off the road so not hard to get car out like most of the garages in Maidstone. Booked in work promptly and was the price stated.
Will use again. Great garage, work done very quickly
Really friendly and helpful. Good price. Good communication. Will use again and happy to recommend to friends.
did agreat job at a very good price
I booked in to have my cambelt and water pump done. We also discussed a service as well. Josh quoted the price which I was happy with. They picked up my car and done the work. No hidden costs. I was very impressed and will definitely recommend these guys
Excellent really helpful
Would recommended knows his stuff
Excellent service. Tom checked what actually needed doing, which turned out to be less than I though. He only did what was necessary and charged me accordingly - can't say fairer than that. Will return.
Excellent Garage, Straight forward, no nonsense, fair priced, and slotted my appointment in an hour earlier, when I arrived early.
The work was carried out in the time stated, they also replaced the auxiliary belt after a phone call. Theywere very friendly and polite. They also repaired my blowing exhaust at no extra cost. Well recommended and Will use again
The price I paid was what I was quoted. A lot cheaper than the others. Very accommodating with the pick up time, as it was a weekend. Much appreciated.
Incredibly friendly and accommodating, couldn’t recommend enough. Had my clutch replaced in double-quick time and even lent me a courtesy car because they felt bad that I didn’t have a car for the weekend! Would 100% recommend and will definitely be using them again!
I could not have asked for more. I called on Friday and Tom was kind enough to fit me in for Monday. I needed my timing belt changed and the price I got was half that of what Halfords quoted me. Renault’s are not the easiest to work on, but I found a very patient mechanic. Chatham is difficult to get back from without a car as I live in Maidstone, but Tom offered me his office and wi-fi so that I could work from there and not waste time traveling. I got my MOT, tyres, timing belt and water pump sorted the same day. Tom and his partner were extremely warm and friendly and helpful. Great find and super impressed. Did around 250 miles after the work and haven’t had any troubles yet. Thanks Tom.
Great service. Picked up my car and delivered. Highly recommended. Also excellent prices.
Good service. Collected and delivered car. Kept me informed. Quality work
Highly recommend this garage, friendly, knowledgeable staff at a great price, i will definitely be using them 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.
