Great services overall. It’s just a shame my van was too far gone and not worth fixing
Excellent customer service and very reasonable prices, also the option to pay in 4 monthly installments and it's interest free, they will even collect your car from home or work and return it when it's fixed or theres a courtesy car option for free. Fantastic experience and I will definately be using them for all my mechanical work from now on.
Guys sorted me out at half the cost of my usual garage. Would defo recomend them.
Fantastic service from friendly staff. We were in Glasgow when car warning lights appeared and were unsure who to contact. Through whocanfixyourcar.com we were given Drivers Aotocentres Ltd to contact, who did a fantastic job in getting us back on the road. , The fault was much more complicated than at first thought, but they got the job done at a very reasonable price. Thank goodness we were directed to a reliable garage who obviously know what they are doing and charges in my opinion were very reasonable in the circumstances. Should I ever be in the area and have car problems I know who I will call. Drivers Autocentres Ltd are highly recommended.
Fantastic service quick and efficient will use again. Highly recommended
Great service and on time
Job done at an extremely good price (almost 1/3rd of main dealer cost) Car picked up and delivered back. No complaints at all. Will certainly use again and recommend to anybody.
Fantastic service from Auto Solutions. Collected my car and re-delivered to my house fixed within 48 hours. Price rose slightly by my own choosing due to them suggesting having the timing belt replaced whilst they had already stripped the car back. Highly recommend them and will likely be using them again in the future, super fast service.
good service, friendly people. Replaced timing chain, filters and all tippers. No more rattling noise when I drive!!
The perfect garage
Brilliant service. Collected and dropped off car with no problems. Car brake pads replaced and dealt with professionally from start to finish.
Job done quickly and will use this. Business again
Patrick Was very helpful, picked up and returned car and did a great job on the respray.
have owned my current car for 12 years during which time I have carefully maintained it. In the main it has normally gone to a main Ford dealer for servicing/repair work, however over the last few years due to the car getting older and moreso due to the ever increasingly over inflated prices that main Ford dealers charge, I have been looking for cheaper alternatives for repairs and subsequently have had several jobs carried out via this site. The first two jobs via this website were not good experiences due to poor workmanship and being charged for work that was never done. However my recent experience with this latest job has restored my faith in this site . Patrick the owner is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, he took the time to go on a test drive with me and confirmed the knocking noise that I was complaining about and identified the general area it was coming from. The car was booked in for repair the following week and subsequently when the car was in the workshop the mechanic quickly identified the exact problem part which was then ordered and replaced within an hour at a very reasonable price. The main Ford dealer who I had taken the car to prior to taking it to Patrick had actualy incorrectly diagnosed the problem and once again quoted a hugely over inflated price to get it repaired, it was the price they were charging that made me turn to this site again and this time I'm glad I did. The car is now back to how I'm used to it being and I would definitely recommend this garage and will certainly be using them again in the future
Clutch and flywheel replaced but found a hydraulic leak which needed a back order part. Kept me well informed and very apologetic as took a few days to arrive but quoted price of part first and didn't charge for its fitting. Great service.
Fantastic service delivered will definitely be my go to garage!!
Fast and efficient. Very impressed.
All work done to spec and cost
Fantastic same day service at a great price. Thank you do much.
Really good an busy garage,did a good job,friendly people working. I will be comming back and can recommend
Renault clio (65) £90 for full service labour only and mot. Parts supplied by owner. Guys did a great job and the mechanic had very nice manors and a funny sense of humour. Waited during the service and mot, was told it would take up to 2 hours but took 3 hours which was OK. They have KFC and chunky chicken near by to help u wait lol. Will use again for my next service. Traveled from Shaw which was about 9 miles away but worth it :) Mechanic left old parts in the bad as requested and my 1st mot passed. Thank you very much for the service. Wanted a good mechanic to do my fuel filter as its not an easy place to get to and didn't want my local shady mechanic to touch my car again. Oh I left about 4 chicken wings on your chair, sorry I forgot to take em, hope someone had them :) don't like wasting food.
I am satisfied.
I also had other work done . Full service brake pads all round and linkage arm was broken. It was booked for just the service but no problem for them to do the other work at the same time. Very happy with the work and price will return
The brakes were fixed quickly and well, the guys were very nice and kept me updated as the work was being done. Very good, and will certainly use them again.
was very happy with the job!
Would recommend, got the job done quick and for a very fair price. Thanks!
Great service. Polite staff
Excellent service. Booked me in quickly and job was done right away. No hassle and a really friendly service. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent services, curtious staff and it's nice to have a garage you can trust.
Back last year I had the gearbox bearings changed in my gearbox, A lot of garages refused to do the job. Done 10,000 miles since the work was carried out without any issues . Fantastic garage, friendly staff and well priced. Highly recommended. Sorry for the late review.
didn't end up having the job done but great communication from garage will use this company when I next have a problem
Excellent service, friendly staff. Very helpful and explained all work done and even showed what they had fixed
The cost of Gearbox Repairs will likely differ greatly depending on which Fiat model you have. Combining the varying cost of parts and the difference in labour hours needed to complete the job, different Fiat models will cost different amounts for Gearbox Repairs. Take a look below at the average quote for Gearbox Repairs on WhoCanFixMyCar.com for some of the top Fiat models.

A Gearbox is the device used to increase and decrease torque, a twisting force which causes rotation, through the increase or reduction of speed. Ultimately, the Gearbox is used to change the speed of the vehicle.
If you are putting your car into a gear, only for it to slip out, it’s obvious you have a fault. A likely cause is that the gears themselves will be worn down.
You will have to have the parts replaced as a result of the damage as it will only get worse as time progresses.
It would also be wise to check your transmission fluid levels as the parts may have worn down as a result of low lubricants.
Like many of the issues listed on this guide, low levels of transmission fluid can be the reason for the problem.
If you are hearing more noise than usual from your car while it is neutral, then check the levels of fluid and try topping it up.
If this does not resolve the problem, then the most likely cause will be worn down gearbox parts.
As soon as you see ‘Service Engine Soon’ in yellow on your dashboard, that is exactly what you should do as it is an indicator that something is about to go wrong or already has.
There are a variety of sensors on different parts of your car including ones on the transmission. They are in place to detect specific signs of an issue developing such as vibrations or jerks which you may not be able to see, hear or feel.
Paying attention to the light could help you save money on a gearbox repair so make sure to do so!
A dragging clutch is caused when the flywheel and clutch fail to disengage which makes changing gears almost impossible.
This gearbox problem will likely be accompanied by a grinding noise being emitted every time you try to change gears.
Luckily a gearbox repair cost will not be extortionate if you are suffering from this problem.
If the clutch has too much slack in the pedal then the linkage between the clutch disk and the pedal wont be able to pull the two parts apart.
Therefore, the linkage simply needs to be tightened or replaced which isn't as expensive as other gearbox repairs.
If your car simply refuses to go into a specific gear it is worth checking the level of you fluid as this is a common issue, though can be resolved by topping the liquid up.
There are other potential issues that would prevent you being able to go into a specific gear.
Occasionally the computer which is part of your car can be the source of the problem, alternatively the shift cables could require adjusting.
A burning smell in a car is never a good sign and as soon as you notice it is vital that you call a mobile mechanic or break down assistance in order to diagnose the problem and find a solution.
When it comes to the gearbox, a burning smell can be the result of transmission fluid overheating.
If the fluid system fails, then other parts of the system will suffer as a result.
Transmission fluid acts as lubricant and a cooling agent for the moving parts of a transmission as they are in constant perpetual motion as a car is driven, this causes friction and a build-up of heat.
Therefore a lack of transmission fluid will be harmful to these parts and a burning smell will be emitted.
If you ignore the burning smell in your car then an entire transmission replacement is likely to be required.
A car should not grind or shake at all so do not think that its normal even if it is gradual and only minor.
If ignored the issue will get worse and you will end up incurring a higher gearbox repair cost.
Grinding and shaking is a common symptom of a faulty gearbox when you move from one gear to the next.
There may even be an issue with the clutch if you feel these effects after you change gears.
If so it is likely that your clutch will need replacing.
The gear synchronizers in your car may be also be badly damaged or worn down if you feel shaking or grinding.
The transmission system can only operate while automatic transmission fluid lubricates, cleans and conditions the seals while acting as hydraulic fluid.
Even if the transmission fluid is below normal levels, your car will suffer and if it all leaks, you will face serious problems.
Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is bright red and, surprisingly, smells sweet (that is if everything is in working order).
If you detect a leak and the fluid fits this description then you are in luck, all that you require is a hole to be filled.
However, if you come across liquid which is dark and emits a burning smell then the issue is likely to be worse.
Typically this will require the entire transmission system to be flushed or changed as it has become contaminated and is no longer suitable for use in the engine.
ATF liquid is different to motor oil as the engine doesn’t consume any of it, therefore, if it is below its normal level, it’s a fact that you have a leak.
If you would like to check the fluid level, try to locate the transmission case (close to the fill plug) and perform a visual assessment.
Once more, if you have a leak, it is essential that you address the issue and find a clutch or gearbox specialist using WhoCanFixMyCar as we will be able to provide you with a range of quotes from local mechanics.
If you try to move into a certain gear and you feel resistance, or the gearstick keeps popping out, then there is definitely an issue.
There should not be any pushback when you go into gear and so if you even feel the slightest change you should take your car to a gearbox specialist or automatic gearbox specialist as soon as possible.
Typically, this is a problem involving the clutch as well so be prepared to replace it if you run into this type of issue.
It can be difficult to diagnose the extent of a gearbox problem which involves the clutch, so the best advice is to take your car into a clutch and gearbox specialist as mentioned above.
Hearing a strange noise from your car is probably the best way to know that something isn’t right.
There are a plethora of issues which could be causing a noise to come from your car engine and the gearbox is one system which could be causing a new sound.
The specific noise will vary greatly on the model of the car, part and specific issue so it is almost impossible to specifically identify an issue from a sound alone.
The biggest indicator that your gearbox has an issue will be if you hear a clunking noise when you shift gears which sound mechanical, abrupt and loud.
The same can be said of automatic gearboxes, if you notice a clunking noise as you accelerate, slow down or drive on an incline, it would be indicative of an issue with the transmission.
Even if the noise sounds severe, it may be a minor issue, however it will turn into a major one if you do not diagnose the transmission problem.
The gearbox repair cost will spiral if you neglect to address the problem.
Whether you need to replace an automatic gearbox or replace a manual gearbox, the price will vary from one garage to the next and the cost will also vary on the model of the car.
A reconditioned gearbox is a part which has been broken but has been fixed by a transmission expert. If you suffer from a gearbox problem, there is the worry about spending money on new parts, however, it is often possible to salvage engine parts and a reconditioned gearbox is ideal from those wanting to avoid spending money on expensive new parts.
Reconditioned gearbox prices vary depending on the car model however it is always worth shopping around for the best price.
