Service went fine good price as well. Only thing is there is a squealing noise coming from one of the belts. Not sure if its nothing to worry about as wasn't informed. I don't blame the garage for this. Just wish I knew what was causing it
Fast friendly service with a very reasonable price. Was made feel important customer and offered tea coffee. Would use in the future 5*
Excellent service. Good communications. Will be using again.
William was as true as his word. Price quoted was price I payed and he also addressed another little issue thrown in. Not to mention the fact they collected our car and returned same day. I will definitely be using their services again.

Car picked up and dropped off once the clutch was replaced. Nice and friendly and kept good communication while the job was carried out.
I arrived at the agreed time and 90 minutes later I drove off with new discs and pads on all four corners. Great guys and very pleasant. I will contact them again when myservice and MOT is due. Cannot praise them enough.
Brilliant very happy with service they picked up on time and got the job very quickly also got my door lock changed out while it was in getting a timing belt kit done, would recommend 5 stars :)
Great swift service and communication. Will defo use again.
After speaking to Patrick yesterday he had my van picked up straight away and diagnosed within the hour. Finding a few things wrong he quoted a fair price and was professional throughout. My van was delivered back to me today and is now running better than it ever has. Thank you Patrick, extremely pleased with the service from start to finish! Will definitely be a returning customer.
Oh my word! Patrick is amazing and a life saver. He was calm, reassuring, helpful and sincere. I was going to continue looking for the cheapest option but after one phonecall with him - I was happy to proceed with the original quote. He told me what he would do - and he did it. He kept me updated and he took into consideration payment options, my location and urgency of my need..... an all round good bloke and the garage provided a great service. Very, very happy! ;-)
Very good, will use again.
Car running beautifully now. Professional & friendly. Included pick up & drop-off. very convenient. Will Recommend and will use them again.
Great same day service!
All serviced, quick and efficient.
They have done a good job
As usual car was collected and delivered with a very good job done on the car at a lower price than was quoted very pleased with this company and it’s employees
The garage quickly diagnosed my car's issue (for the quoted price of £49.50) and then fixed the issue within the day so that I could get the car back for the weekend. The total price came to £320.58
These Guys are great. highly recommended. Will definitely use them again if required.
Helpful and friendly. Unfortunately not fully fixed but no fault of the garage. Good advice given on fixing ultimate problem. Seemed very fair.
Fantastic service at a very good price. I definitely recommend Monster Dent.
Great service collected from my work a dropped off same day,will use again

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.
