Excellent service they were welcoming and nothing seemed a problem. I was quoted £350 for a clutch replacement but they checked the car first and only needed filters replaced so they did a full service also. Great lads, great service thank you I will be using you again.
Fast, friendly , professional would use them again
Great service and job done promptly and on time. Thanks.
Brilliant price and service. Clutch replaced in one day
It cost more than the initial quote because I asked them to do a full service and replace my water pump. The service was fantastice, they came to my workplace took the car and then did the work and returned my car 5 hours later. All done and sorted. I was very pleased with the price and the service. Would definitely recommend.
Great communications throughout and arranged at short notice. The car failed first time round but after some remedial work, including two new tyres, it passed. I was kept informed and approval was sought for extra spend; the collection and drop-off service worked well and although it cost extra, it was worth it. I didn't feel ripped-off by the extra charges; they all seemed reasonable.
Saj was brilliant, I was really stuck as needed a same day fix, came out to me to do the initial diagnostic, told me what the issue was and gave me options rather than just offering the highest priced repair and explained each option to me fully. He took the car to the garage to undertake repair as agreed and returned to me the same day at the agreed time. Updated throughout the time they had the car with them. Would definitely use M60 Auto's in the future, thanks again Saj
Fantastic to deal with from the start, they got my car to the garage, gave me information so I could make an informed decision and fixed my car promptly and even delivered it back to me at a time to suit.
Full service and MOT went very well, i trust this garage. Highly recommendable.
Booked my car in for a service and MOT, asked for the pick up and drop off service. Great service, car was picked up from my home early morning, communication was good, called to tell me the car was serviced and passed its MOT, then dropped off back at my home end of the afternoon. Great prices as well. Would definitely recommend for someone who has a busy work schedule.
Very happy with the services received. The prices are competitive and the staff friendly and helpful. I would recommend this garage and will use it in the future.
Amazing work again by this garage. Really great customer service, will always go out of their way for you.

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.
