The gentleman Patrick was helpful and excellent service. Will definitely recommend and use for any car probs, thank you
Excellent, Patrick picked my vehicle up and returned it included in the price. Patrick fixed my head gasket, clutch and index light for a reasonable price compared to what other garages quoted me. I would use this garage again.
Patrick is a amazing person, could have charged a lot more as I was getting quotes which were much higher than what Patrick quoted me, I have definitely found a new family mechanic and will recommend to everyone I know Patrick is honest and is a hard worker with no nonsense
Excellent customer service and did a great job with sufficient warranty. Car was collected an delivered in excellent condition. Patrick, Sean and team did an excellent job. I was kept informed during the process and they were always easily contacted. Car driving well after the additional recommendations were added.
I needed the front brake discs and pads replaced on my Toyota Yaris and this was one of the cheaper offers and even offered to collect my car in the morning and deliver it back home once the work was done for free. The garage was nearly 20 miles away from my house! With Patrick already having amazing reviews I immediately accepted the offer and was not disappointed. Patrick was incredibly polite and picked up the car exactly when he told he would and dropped it off just 7 hours later were other garages wanted to keep it overnight and charge more than £200. Will definitely be the garage I stick with in the future.
Slightly pricier that the other offers, but I got a professional, non-pushy service, and didn't end up paying much more as I normally do with cheaper ones.
Were able to my car the next day Send my car in for an engine light on. They called back within an hour with the diagnosis and proposed course of action (which was cheap and I agreed) Then asked for service which was done the next day. Lastly, they weren’t fussed about pickup time. Good experience overall
good service. job completed on time and on budget
Excellent service. Identified the issue quickly and kept me fully informed. Would definitely use again. My faith in car mechanics has been restored!!
Small delay in obtaining part for my car, having said that the service and efficiency was outstanding and I paid the price that was quoted. Very happy customer. Thank you.
Great service with a caring attitude.
All completed satisfactorily. Good communication and Lee kept to all agreed timescales. Thanks very much
Great work from these guys, were timely and willing to adjust to my time requirements, explained everything ahead of time and did good work, would hire again
Lee from assist motors saved me from buying a poor car. He was very clear in his recommendation and showed me all defects. Later this evening upon viewing another car I asked a question by text and he very kindly helped me out again. Very knowledgeable, helpful and professional.
Yes I would recommend them , Sadie lady I spoke to first was very helpful And kept me up to speed on how the car was going , ok the final price was higher but they have to add on vat , and in a Kia Sedona I know it’s not easy job to do a cam belt and water pump , was in couple days extra due to unfor seen things at the time , also Adam the mechanic explained to me about what needed to be done , too top it off had phone call this morning 7/2/19 to ask if all was ok
Very pleased with the service I received today from this garage and will come back again in the year! Great advice and honesty with my diesel leak feel much safer on the road, Thanks again Adam !
Amazing service very fast
Nice work, thanks Suhail.
First visit to the garage. Quite happy with their job, definatelly I will trust them again.
Very helpful, quick and price was what was quoted!
quick response and availability to change my rear brake pads. however the price did not include sensors which my car actually needs. so i had to provide them myself. i was told it would take an hour, but ended up taking over 4 hours to do due to a sticking piston in the caliper. however they did not charge any extra so was happy over all
Car was repaired the day I dropped it off! Nice guys and decent price. Would recommend!
I asked to open the bonnet, that's what they've done. I also asked to replace the release cable, they've done that too after agreeing on some reasonable extra cost. Very pleased I've used their service.
Brilliant service and price was what was quoted. Finished to a high standard. They took the car in the same day and completed the works within 2 days.
Ross Motors were brilliant, I would highly recommend them. They were efficient, quick, adaptable and worked outside of working hours. Very useful and good value.
Great, came and fixed the issue and advised if it returns to take it to a garage to have it fixed again.
Exceeded expectations. Honest and authentic specialist mechanic. Customer service 9/10/
Great service and great price!
The garage was very transparent and professional keeping me updated each step of the way, they also added a oil flush and change as one was required and completed the work in a timely manner, was recommended by a relative and would definitely use again, thank you!
Needed my van for work, the dpf emmisions needed repairing. His efficiancy was invaluable. Mike contacted me after an enquiry online. Efficient service and reliable. My van now back on the road so I can work for my buisness . Mike accommodated the times I requested to book my van in so I could get the van back on the road . Highly recommend this garage
Great service from start to finish, collected and delivered my car back. She now runs better then ever after having the 80% of ash blocking her DPF filter cleaned out.
Ade was very informative, done a good job, and the customer service was great

Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
