Good honest mechanics (not many of those these days) price was as quoted, I will be definitely using this garage again in the future. Thank you
I had the rear discs and pads replaced for 135 as quoted and then I asked for the front pads replacing which was 60. Very friendly fast and a great service. I will be using this garage again.
Used this garage twice now with 2 different cars, once for a clutch and dmf and once for an exhaust back box. Quoted an excellent price each time, much cheaper than my regular garage and I have no complaints whatsoever. Quick and easy with no fuss. I would 100% use this garage again.
Got me in same day, did job in a couple of hours no problems would use again
Excellent, pick up and drop off. Honest
I had an engine misfire , and check engine sign was flashing on my dashboard. I was charged 25 pounds for initial diagnosis and was offered 10% off the cost of diagnosis , when I get it fixed with them. I was asked to drop in instantly and my problem was resolved in an hour. The diagnosis was good, and I dint feel like I was being ripped off. The staff were super friendly, down to the engineer at work. Kelley and Dale were fantastic and very polite. Kelly had also dropped me off at my place , whilst the work was going on. My car is running fine now. I was very skeptical abt garages ripping customers off, but I think I've found one I can trust. If you're like me, I'd recommend this garage, as the prices are fair, and staff is friendly. I will definately opt for this garage again, for my MOT. Thanks KDP.
5 star service - after looking hard for a garage I could trust I took a gamble with KDP based on its previous reviews. I found Kellie was very informative and knew a lot about her cars, she was honest and trustworthy telling me of the work I actually didn't need instead of getting me to pay for what I didn't need and rip me off like some other garages. They picked up my car in the morning and whilst at the garage informed me I had a snapped spring and worn out bushes which they changed on top of the agreed work on the day. kept me informed all the way through, id definitely recommend this garage and will be coming back here every time if there's any problems with my car. Car now drives smoothly
Job completed fine
Highly recommend this garage & I will be back when something else needs doing. Fitted me in at very short notice. Fantastic customer service. Quick turnaround. I couldn't have asked for better. Thank you so much!
Very good service
All good would defo use again, thanks
Paid price quoted.Car done same day. Excellent service,would highly recommend Thank you
Nat and his team have done themselves proud yet again. He’s done and excellent job from start to finish. Always in contact with me to keep me upto date and made me feel like he cared, more than other garages I’ve taken my car too. I’ll be going back again if any other issues arise.
Good service. Incorrectly supplied filters from factors. NEST arranged genuine filters from dealer at their expense. They would not let the car go without it being right and me being happy.
Although they did not repair my car these guys were very helpful.i found out it was an exhaust fault that I had had repaired not long before and was still on warranty.great friendly lads
Fantastic job and very well done but took nearly a month to get an invoice for work carried out. Lack of stationery was to blame. Can’t fault the mechanics though and have quoted me for further works at very competitive prices so will use again
Great service and customer service.Competitive price, called me to advise about extra work needed but wasn't pushy about it, which was nice. All in all it still came at a cheaper price than if I'd have just gone for a service elsewhere, would recommend to both walk in and WCFMC? customers
Perfect service once again. Collected and delivered back to us for a small charge, well worth it for the convenience. Would not hesitate in recommending this garage and will continue to use them for all my families cars.
Very pleased. Car collected a dropped back off. Work completed to a high standard and car running smoothly again. Nice and friendly garage, would highly recommend.
Was good jobs
Front pads and discs supplied and fitted, excellent service and value, would definitely use these again and recommend them to anybody else, even sorted a little squeak I had under the bonnet at no extra charge, good garage & good people, thanks
All as promised. No nasty surprises.
Excellent service, were able to fit the same day they quoted (yesterday) and had it ready earlier than expected. All in all a top garage & gave me advice on a further query I have and will be going back as garages who treat women fairly are few. Big thank you to all the staff!
First class service and first class workmanship from James, from initial phone call to completing the work on my car. His knowledge and expertise was second to none, readily explained everything and gave his honest opinion and the options available for the repair.. fair price as well for all the work he completing and in a day
Did a real good job and very quick would recommend
James was very thorough and honest. He found unforeseen issues caused by previous mechanics and made sure to call for permission before any additional work was done. He made everything was as smooth and easy as possible. I was running late to the garage to pick up my car, (I was catching a train and using a taxi to get there) it ended up being after the garage closed that I would arrive. James said to let him know 15 minutes before I would arrive and he'd open up for me to collect. Sure enough, I arrived and he turned up with a smile on his face and took the time to go through everything with me, making sure not to rush. Really above and beyond! I will be returning!
They were brilliant!
Excellent customer service and job completed within the hour. Have already booked car in for further work. Would highly recommend.
very fast and by far the cheapest quote. helpful and explanatory, Will be my go to from now on!
Great garage, fantastic customer service, kept me informed, will definitely recommend.
Staff were really friendly and helpful. Ended up needing more work than I'd hoped but the staff were great throughout. Happy with the job. Would go to them again.

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.
