That was for new shocks,front discs and pads,2 front 19in tyres and a major service. All done in a day brilliant service. Car going great thanks Jamie
As per usual the service was fast, friendly and efficient. Regularly use this garage for company vehicle as well as my own.
Brilliant service from the guys, work was carried out efficiently (full service and MOT). Answered any questions in a friendly manner, wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Best price i could find and the friendly attitude of staff was a nice bonus.
Although pricey I was kept to date, my car was picked up and dropped off and the team went the extra mile to get it done that day. Would thoroughly recommend
Great service from start to finish. Kept in touch regarding what was needed for car to get through the MOT
Excellent service from start to finish, highly recommended.
Steven is a genuine guy who seems to love his job. He found additional issues with my car and worked hard to clear the fault which he didn’t have to do. As for the original problem this was cleared and I’m looking forward to a few more miles for my car! Thanks again and will recommend to all my friends and family
Steve was excellent. He was really helpful and on time. Got the oil changed quickly and pointed out a few issues to the car. Definetely recommend!
Steve ran a set of diagnostics and was able to identify and advise on the issues with an intermittent engine management light. Previous garages and OBD readers had failed to find the problem. With knowledge of the issue if it reoccurs a future visit to Kerr Tech may be on the cards. Great service and advise.
1st class service as always
Fast and reliable
Fantastic service . I would definitely recommend. DAVID so helpful and reasonable price. JANE
job offer cancel. no communication, didnt turn up to fix car.
Amazing and quick service. I will definitely be back!!
All went well , very happy with the work carried out.
I had a good experience, the garage began work on my car quickly and was able to find and subsequently resolve a problem with my brake pads that day before the shops closed. Although the price with vat should have been quoted, the work needed done.
Price was as quoted, very low, was a bit skeptical about why, but honest working lads and gave me a very quick turnaround as i needed it back for the afternoon. To my surprise they even gave my car a quick clean! This is my new go-to garage for MOT/Service/Brakes
Clutch not replaced, garage not sure work was needed. Full marks for honesty and would use again for repairs
Good service and communication.Did what was needed in good time,kept me informed on progress,A++++++++
Great service, quick repair. Thank you very much.
Good People, Good Price, Good Service. Best MOT I've ever had, no shit. Will take my future business back too, Drivers Autocentre LTD - Maryhill Road.
Got my car booked in quickly and the diagnostics check was done on the same morning.
No problems whatsoever. Great communication with Tony and he helped with other problems that needed doing. Will definitely be back.
Delighted. Completed the job really quickly and for the quoted amount. Highly recommended
Absolute Gem of a guy. By far the cheapest price for a clutch replacement on my Ford Focus, he even opened up on a Sunday to get the job done then he delivered the car to me! It's good to know that not every garage owner is out to rob you. Thanks again Tony.
Well impressed. Fixed my car and i wasn't even able to be there. Friendly. Kept in contact. Great service. Would highly recommend x

Thank you Graeme for your help. You were very honest and friendly. A fantastic price for re-attaching my exhaust. I’m sorry you had to undertake the work whilst you were unwell. For that, I’m very grateful. And ladies, if you need a mechanic, and don’t want to be ripped-off, give G-Cal a phone. Thanks again. Irene
Mark was great had an issue with part being delivered no fault of garage all down to supplier. Mark stayed 2 hours after closing time to compete the job and even gave me advice about my tyres and showed me area's that needed work. Defenently will go back. Thanks

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.
