What a great little place, the owner is a smashing bloke, knows all about cars did the work in just over the hour, the best garage I have ever used and will be back when my car next needs any work. The bill was exactly as he had quoted and the was a great price.
Nice people, did everything that was asked, price matched, can't fault!
Work was done without any fuss and for a fair price

Nice people, honest, exactly what you want in a garage!
Friendly staff, regas took about 40 minutes.
Good job, quick turnaround time and carried out exact work that was quoted. Would use again.
Excellent and very straightforward to deal with. They even collected the car and dropped it back off at my house for no extra charge. I would highly recommend and would use this garage again without hesitation.
Fantastic professional garage. Highly recommended. Will be using them again. No hidden costs or anything and kept me upto date on progress
This was a prompt, convenient and honest repair that 'did what it said on the box'. They picked up the car, sorted out the issue, and brought it back all to agreed time scales. They also spotted another fault, which upped the cost... but I guess that's cars for you! ;-)
Fab needed new air conditioning motor done job fast and cheap thanks a lots
Great service. Car got a wash too.
Booked a full service, after GC autos came out as the cheapest quote with a lot of good reviews. Was quoted £130, they called me back within an hour to book me in for a few days later. I was told it would take about an hour. Dropped off my car, exactly an hour later they called to say my car was ready to collect. I paid the £130, with a couple of things mentioned to watch out for next time. Couldn’t ask for better! Thank you!
Wheel alignment couldn’t be completed as other works required. Clear explanation given without a hard sell and no charge. Booked car in for all work plus wheel alignment in a few days time. Polite and friendly staff.
Impressive premises,friendly staff,job done on time.
Good communication at first and very competitive price. Job completed swiftly Took a little while to get the invoice and lots of chasing but got there in the end - hence the only 4 stars.
Great service & competitive price. Fitted new clutch, fly wheel and slave cylinder to car that wouldn't go in to gear. Used pitstop several times and find mark friendly and very knowledgeable.
Excellent garage, really nice guys and fixed the problem quickly. Highly recommend!
My wheel bearings x2 needed replacing. I’d driven over 200 miles over Christmas to visit family in Newcastle and the noise my car was making had gotten worse during the journey to the point I didn’t want to risk the long drive back with my 1 year old in the car, in case it was serious. Anyway, I contacted Mark Xmas eve and he quoted me straight away to take a look but the soonest he could do it was the 27th, understandably. It was arranged without any problem. When I took it in on the 27th he diagnosed it quickly, did the work the same day and had it back to me sounding and driving like it should. He only charged what he paid for parts plus a fair price for labour. If I ever need my car looked at when I’m in Newcastle again I will definitely go to Mark.
Great service, fitted my car in at short notice despite them being really busy. Thank you.
Good service. Highly recomended.
Abstemiously brilliant price and service. Can't recommend them highly enough. They even responded on a Sunday to questions via text!
Car works fine after having it in for a replacement alternator belt. Only downside I have is my side mirror has been damaged and is very loose . They both are very loose now. Apart from this brilliant lads and quick service.
Performed job quickly at price quoted. Good waiting facilities.
Excellent service, can’t recommend highly enough will be back for me next service!
Brilliant friendly service! Super quick. Will go again!! Thanks.
I have just had a part replaced on my exhaust. Price was as quoted and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend the garage to others and wouldn't hesitate to use them again myself in the future.
Amazing service! Would highly recommend and will use again for all of our car repairs.
Amazing service from this garage. Came and picked up my car from work as I couldn't get any time off. Car was fixed within an hour so super fast. Would highly recommend to anyone. Fair price and amazing service
An exhaust system has the primary function of guiding fumes away from a controlled combustion section of an engine. The exhaust system on a car is carefully designed so the fumes omitted from the engine can be safely transported away from passengers in the car.
The exhaust system is made up of a several parts, all of which could cause potential issues if damaged. Though you only see the tail pipe from the outside of the car, the exhaust system is a large system.
The exhaust ensures fumes are transported from the engine all the way to the tailpipe at the back of the car. The gas flows down from the engine to the flange and onto the catalytic converter, it then travels on to the muffler and resonance chamber before going to the resonator and finally out through the tailpipe.
All of these parts have distinctive functions with piping connecting them along the bottom of the car. Each section of the system has to be completely airtight and functioning properly to ensure the gases are released into the outside environment safely.
Because there are several components of the exhaust system and because it usually stretches the full length of the car, costs can vary.
Depending on the area, part and extent of the damage, you are likely to pay different prices. Some repairs may only consist of sealing a small leak whereas others may result in replacing entire pipes or elements.
If there is a leak in the exhaust system, there is a chance that engine performance will be negatively affected. This is due to the escape of pressure at the wrong point of the system.
It is essential that an exhaust system is not damaged as leakage could pose danger to those inside the vehicle. Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides could seep into a car if the exhaust is damaged. These gases are also extremely hot and would cause serious damage if they were to meet a passenger.
The piping in an exhaust system must be heat resistant due to the high temperatures of these compounds and if the exhausts integrity is compromised, anything close to the damaged area will be exposed to potential harm.
If your DPF is also blocked or not functioning properly, soot and particulate will escape from the system and cause damage to the environment and people in the surrounding area.
If there is an oil leak, there is only a very small chance that the problem is the exhaust system. This is due to the fact that engine oil doesn’t course through the exhaust like it does for a part like the head gasket.
However, if there is an oil leak, it may get into the combustion system and the result will be blue smoke coming from the exhaust.
A warning light will come on but it will not likely be the check engine light. This is because a problem with the exhaust will be detected specifically by oxygen sensors or the sensors in the DPF if your exhaust system is fitted with one.
A common symptom for a damaged exhaust is a loud roaring noise being emitted from your vehicle. This noise would indicate that you have a problem with the silencer part of the system. A common issue with silencers is corrosion by acidic moisture which is caused by a build-up of the damaging substance.
If a part of the system has cracked or a hole has appeared, you will be able to hear a hissing noise and a chugging sound could mean there is a blockage in the system. If the exhaust is leaking, the issue needs to be addressed immediately as the fumes are dangerous.
There is also a chance that the exhaust is leaking water, in which case, there is a crack or hole somewhere in the system as a possible result of a water leak from the head gasket.
If you hear the exhaust popping or rattling beneath your car it could mean that your exhaust has become misaligned and if you can hear a loud metallic vibration it usually means that something is hitting the exhaust pipe. It could also mean a clamp, mounting or support bracket exhaust is loose.
Hangers and brackets are essential for holding the system in place so if these parts become damaged there is a significant risk that the rest of the system will suffer damage as a result.
If you are able to get underneath your car, it is always the best way to check for signs of damage.
One of the most common issues associated with exhausts is rust build up, however this can often be a minor issue as some pealing of metal is not a huge issue.
If there is a build-up of rust on any part of the system, use a tool such as a screwdriver to see how strong the area feels, if the integrity is solid then the part won’t need replacing however if the metal feels weak when some pressure is applied, its time you get the part removed and a new one installed.
Black smoke coming from your exhaust means that your engine is burning more fuel than it should. This is often caused by a problem with your fuel injectors, air filter or fuel-pressure regulator. Alternatively, the fuel line could be clogged. Burning excessive fuel will have a noticeable effect on fuel economy meaning that you will be spending much more money getting from A-B.
If your exhaust in pumping out blue smoke, oil will have leaked into the engine and been burned in the system. This happens following the valve guide seals or piston rings wearing out and allowing engine oil into the combustion chamber. Engine oil is only meant for the lubrication of parts which are in constant contact with each other.
If engine oil is leaking into the combustion system, you need to have the issue addressed with an oil changeimmediately as low engine oil levels will be incredibly detrimental to your car.
If white smoke is coming from your exhaust, your car could be low on engine coolant from the result of a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block or a head gasket failure from overheating.
If engine coolant gets anywhere near the combustion chamber, the liquid will be vaporised and converted into a white gas which is then pushed out through the tailpipe.
If the exhaust is smoking thick black, white or blue fumes, there is also an issue with the system as the exhaust should not be blowing this colour of smoke. To find out why your exhaust is blowing smoke use our dedicated guide.
Car exhaust repair is a service which can be priced at a variety of levels. This is due to the fact that there are a number of things which could go wrong.
