That was for new shocks,front discs and pads,2 front 19in tyres and a major service. All done in a day brilliant service. Car going great thanks Jamie
As per usual the service was fast, friendly and efficient. Regularly use this garage for company vehicle as well as my own.
Brilliant service from the guys, work was carried out efficiently (full service and MOT). Answered any questions in a friendly manner, wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Best price i could find and the friendly attitude of staff was a nice bonus.
Although pricey I was kept to date, my car was picked up and dropped off and the team went the extra mile to get it done that day. Would thoroughly recommend
Great service from start to finish. Kept in touch regarding what was needed for car to get through the MOT
Steven is a genuine guy who seems to love his job. He found additional issues with my car and worked hard to clear the fault which he didn’t have to do. As for the original problem this was cleared and I’m looking forward to a few more miles for my car! Thanks again and will recommend to all my friends and family
Steve was excellent. He was really helpful and on time. Got the oil changed quickly and pointed out a few issues to the car. Definetely recommend!
Steve ran a set of diagnostics and was able to identify and advise on the issues with an intermittent engine management light. Previous garages and OBD readers had failed to find the problem. With knowledge of the issue if it reoccurs a future visit to Kerr Tech may be on the cards. Great service and advise.
1st class service as always
I did not go thro with job. Due to my I’ll health.
Fast and reliable
Fantastic service . I would definitely recommend. DAVID so helpful and reasonable price. JANE
job offer cancel. no communication, didnt turn up to fix car.
Amazing and quick service. I will definitely be back!!
All went well , very happy with the work carried out.
I had a good experience, the garage began work on my car quickly and was able to find and subsequently resolve a problem with my brake pads that day before the shops closed. Although the price with vat should have been quoted, the work needed done.
Price was as quoted, very low, was a bit skeptical about why, but honest working lads and gave me a very quick turnaround as i needed it back for the afternoon. To my surprise they even gave my car a quick clean! This is my new go-to garage for MOT/Service/Brakes
Good service and communication.Did what was needed in good time,kept me informed on progress,A++++++++
Great service, quick repair. Thank you very much.
Good People, Good Price, Good Service. Best MOT I've ever had, no shit. Will take my future business back too, Drivers Autocentre LTD - Maryhill Road.
Got my car booked in quickly and the diagnostics check was done on the same morning.
I called to book my car in for break pads and asked for an MOT at the same time. This was no hassle at all and quoted a new price for both. Extremely great customer service and pleasant staff! Will be using this garage again. Thanks guys!
No problems whatsoever. Great communication with Tony and he helped with other problems that needed doing. Will definitely be back.
Delighted. Completed the job really quickly and for the quoted amount. Highly recommended
Absolute Gem of a guy. By far the cheapest price for a clutch replacement on my Ford Focus, he even opened up on a Sunday to get the job done then he delivered the car to me! It's good to know that not every garage owner is out to rob you. Thanks again Tony.
No bull job was done as soon as the part was delivered.......well done guys thank you very much
Overall very good. I decided to pay for an extra oil and filter change as well as it was recommended by the garage. That added to the cost but the car is running great since the work. Friendly staff and a quick turnaround.
Great experience dealing with Steven and the team at Kerr-tech. Transparent from start to finish. Great communication and fair prices. Won't hesitate to go back.
I am very happy to recommend Stevie and Kerr Tech. Dpf issues were new to me and can be very serious and Steve was very willing to explain the issue, answer all my questions and explain all the steps required to fix the issue to the standard I requested. He was also willing to spend time finding required replacement parts at costs significantly cheaper than I would have paid at a dealership. All in all I am very happy with the service I recieved. An additional bonus is that Rutherglen station is minutes away meaning that you can quickly and easily get in and out of town.

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.
