Quick service, reliable
Excellent service. The mechanic went to the trouble of discussing what they had done which was very much appreciated. The receptionist was very friendly.will definitely be back.
Good quick helpful servive would happily recommend.
2 years in a row I’ve had a full service and MOT with Drivers Autocentre. Never had any issues car passed first time and definitely the lowest price I could find. Will use again next year
Thanks Drew & the guys , using this garage for a while now car mot & full serviced no problem thanks again
Yes. They did more work than original estimate and appeared to have done a good job and good value . Very helpful.
Cracking service from these guys, picked my car up and had phoned with a price within 2 hours. Work was done that day, car feels much better and advised of a couple of things still needing done. Car was dropped back off also at no extra cost.
Great service and the job was done fast and efficient. The car drives like new.
Good feedback of diagnostics done. Happy with work undertaken.
Very friendly and professional at the same time. I’m very happy. Highly recommended
I took my car to Goodfellas and even when I was booking over the phone the guys there made sure they explained everything to me and what they would do to the car. I wasn’t hurried off the phone or treated badly at all. Even when they were discovering new problems on my car they would phone me and go over everything to make sure I was confident in what they were doing for me. They had to order a range of new parts for me but they made a lot of effort to minimise the costs. They showed me the parts afterwards to show me the wear and why they had to replace. Overall I can’t give these guys a good enough review, they were superb. I would especially like to thank Lucas for all his help and Martin for taking car of the car. Even though I am not local to the garage I will be taking my car there in the future. Great bunch of guys there who are all extremely friendly and care about the service they provide. 5 stars for them. Thanks again Goodfellas. Will
All was perfect especially the staff thank you
Excellent friendly service
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.
Patrick did an amazing job with repairing the gearbox to my vehicle that had completely given up the ghost and wouldn't budge.Service was excellent and very speedy.We most especially appreciated the fact that he went the extra mile to do overtime to get the car done on time and delivered the same evening of repair!The car runs smoothly in gear shifts and runs like new, and the quality done in work is top notch with a very competitive unbeatable price. It was also extremely helpful that he was able to pick up and drop off the vehicle back to the house free of charge, which says a lot about the quality of customer service.Patrick now has a permanent customer from us :)
Thank you very much for your help and Mr Patrick have done a GREAT JOB to my car. My engine is very smooth with fast acceleration. I am definately be with you for the next service. Doan in 225 Watford way
Very prompt response, and got the Job done
An incredibly good service. Excellent price, great customer service and communication. Went £4 over estimate but also fitted a new thermostat I had boxed up in the car for free. Would always recommend them to anyone.
Got the work done quickly and efficiently, no hitches whatsoever. Hard to find a garage that does the work at a fair price and at a pace as quick as Swanmores. Finally found a garage that's going to be my go to every time I need some work done to my car. Appreciate it!
Job done, kept informed and useful information for future reference. Thanks.
Front brake pads replaced, excellent will definitely go back. thankyou
Completed diagnostic as requested. Timescales for job initially unclear but clarified later. Comprehensive explanation of fault and discussion of options.
Excellent straight to the point service Literally went for an interim service, dropped the car off, came back an hour later, done Easy And also very cheap
Fantastic service. Just need a bigger sign to find it.
Great! Had it picked up and done during work, and dropped off after. Nice and easy, thanks.
Very friendly, helpful and most importantly fixed the problem quickly. I would definitely use again.
I couldn’t believe my luck that my car had come up yet again with the same fault egr valve. The garage contacted me and had to arrange pick up of my car as it wasn’t drivable but the garage sorted this for me and due to having no car the garage even gave me a courtesy car while mine was in for repair. When the garage looked at car they told me that the intake manifold was blocked so needed cleaning out which to me was music to my ears as it was a new egr valve on the car. They kept me informed on everything that was happening to my car and even rang to tell me that someone had put the wrong fuel in to which is why my car wasn’t drivable. The guys at the garage drained my tank and cleaned the fuel from the engine. After I picked my car up there was a slight issue but after ringing the garage they sent me the courtesy car back and took my car away to be looked at which I was impressed with as they did this within 30 mins of me calling. They are friendly and polite and will always keep you up to date with everything that they do. These guys do a great job. I would recommend this garage as from now on if I have any issues with my car again I know where to go. Well done guys and thank you
Really pleased with their service, they diagnosed and replaced a dodgy EGR valve, did loads of extra checks to be sure it was right. They knew I was on a tight budget so did everything they could to keep costs down, car is running sweet as a nut now, would thoroughly recommend these guys.
Great experience I was booked in 2 days after my enquiry Communication was faultless price stayed the same. I had my car out within hours with extra work done. Thank you, will definitely make this my garage.

ERG stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation and it is a function performed within the combustion engine of a car. The measure is sophisticated in the manner in which it is carried out as exhaust gasses are recirculated back into the inlet manifold to be used for combustion again.
The reason that ERG takes place is to reduce the production of oxides of nitrogen which is harmful to breathe in and is damaging to the environment.
The impact of exhaust gas being recirculated is a drop in engine performance and fuel economy. Diesel cars are also subject to an increase in the production of soot and harmful particulates. However, new engines are able to utilise a variety of clever electronic control strategies to reduce the impact of using an EGR system.
At the heart of the ERG system is the ERG valve, a part which has evolved over time to be more efficient and effective. For example, the part used to be pneumatically operated which limited it to only an 'open' or 'close' setting, however, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) is used to allow continuous levels of adjustability in new models.
A ERG valve has to be highly robust as exhaust fumes travel through at extremely high temperatures and velocity. There is also a high volume of soot and particulate matter carried by the fumes and as it has not passed through the DPF, it can build-up in the ERG system, causing problems.
When there is a build-up of soot and particulate matter, the EGR valve can become stuck open or closed as the substance can become tar like. A blocked EGR valve could be the cause of the engine light in your car switching on as the engine emissions system will not be performing properly.
Wiring and pneumatics could be the root cause of ERG problems as the communication between the ERG valve and ECU may be compromised.
This can be a difficult problem to diagnose as the ERG valve is not the most common cause of the engine warning light coming on and mechanics may not decide to look at the part until after checking more obvious potential causes.
However, using an intelligent diagnostic tool which connects directly to the ECU in your car, a mechanic may be able to see the problem immediately.
However, the ECU will only be able to tell if there is an ERG problem if there is a total failure. It will not be able to detect degradation.
If the ERG valve is stuck open, your car will suffer from a rough idle and a drop in engine performance as well as a decrease in fuel economy.
If the ERG valve is jammed shut, there may be an increase in the temperature within the cylinder which may lead to engine knocking. Fortunately, modern cars are fitted with knock sensors which will enable the car to adapt accordingly.
If your car needs to have its EGR valve removed, you will have to pay for a new part and the labour time of the mechanic. Fortunately, this is not the most complex of repairs as the part is not usually buried too deeply within a car engine.
However, the only way to know how much an ERG valve replacement will cost on your specific car is by getting a range of quotes from the best local mechanics.
