Very friendly service from the moment i drove in, kept me updated thrpugh the job and let me know exactly what was done when finished. Great garage
Found Steins Garage online following a failed MOT where another garage had basically written my car off. Craig, his father George and the team came to the rescue and quickly quoted a fair, reasonable figure. Booked the car in and after a few hours the job was done. The icing on the cake was the final bill was £120 less than quoted. Very efficient, professional, expert and friendly service - I would not hesitate to recommend Steins Garage. I'll be back soon for a service!
Good service. I didn't need anything done for my MOT except a bulb and they didn't charge for that - I have been charged for similar in other garages.
Needed brakes fixed, Craig of steins garage came back to me 1st with a good quote. Excellent service, kept intouch whole time. Would definitely use steins garage in future for any work needing done!
Friendly, professional, stress free repair...great job!
Service done on my Mercedes at a very reasonable price I will use again in the future.
Fantastic service and really quick to get in touch and sort the problem!
This garage is amazing. There was an issue with my car and they couldn’t solve it but didn’t charge me any fees for something they could have easily done like other places would have. Really good prices and I had used them on older vehicles and I will definitely use them again when there are issues with my cars!
Pleased with the service!
Fantastic price, great availability and good communication. Would use again!!
i had a lot of work done also a m.o.t
Seemed pretty good, only put mileage in service book but back for a wheel bearing tomorrow picked up during the service.hoping to get book stamped then.
Fast and good service
I'm not sure much flexi was but quite expensive but part labour price acceptable Halfords 75 a hour can't be justified I said that u think your a judge fuck payed offy lot was 30min job stay away from them go to d&g
The bill was a bit higher that the quote but the guy take it down a bit so was happy with that
Great service very friendly
Air conditioning regassed. Good service and done within an hour of arrival.
Great service thanks
I had a slight concern with my car. I taken my car in for an inspection and test drive. I thankfully didn't require any work to be undertaken and my mind was put at ease. I had a couple of insignificant things that may need looking at eventually but even when I asked if I could book it in to get fixed, I was told it wasn't immediately necessary as it was not of detrimental effect to justify a repair at this time. If that isn't a good garage then I don't know what is. Plenty of other places would have taken the job or told me it needed doing when it perhaps didn't. If I had to recommend D&G then I definitely would. I'll also make a return visit for any of my car needs in future.
brilliant service , fast repairs , polite team well done
Perfect. Got me in for Saturday morning at short notice and had my car back just after 10am. Fantastic service
A big thank you to the staff. I requested back brake pads on Tuesday 27th February. I received a call to say no pads required and my car was fine. As a single female who doesn't know much about cars ,they could have charged my for new pads and discs but due to there honesty I was no charge.. I will be using this garage for all future work on my car and recommend them for friendly, honest and courteous service.
Friendly, quick and efficient service

Can’t praise this guy enough!! Fixed my car at half the price I’d been quoted and did it all within one week. He gave me a lift when I needed to get back to work and also gave my car a free wash!! The best thing about this garage is that I was shown everything that was wrong and it was all explained to me right from the start, no surprises. Shahan was so communicative, honest & helpful!! I would definitely recommend e-vehicles. THANK YOU.
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.
