My go to garage! After discovering the engine management warning light had come on last Sunday evening, I was contacted by Patrick within an hour. He offered to come and collect my car on the Tuesday morning and quoted me a very reasonable price to run a diagnostic. I was kept up to date on the day as to what was wrong with the engine, what needed to be replaced and how much it would cost. My car was returned by 4pm the same day, all fixed and running as should be. Amazing service from Patrick and the team!
I can highly recommend this garage, Patrick was extremely pleasant, efficient and helpful all with a reasonable price. They are extremely reliable with all aspects and keeping us informed all the way through the job. Will use again in the future and highly recommend them to anyone who needs a garage.
Great guy. More issues on my car were found and sorted out and a reasonable price and quick turn around. Will go extra mile to help out when stranded in motorway as well.
Amazing service....this will now be my go to garage.....would highly recommend!!!
Nine months ago I gave up 15 years of Honda ownership and bought a 2010 SEAT Ibiza. This was now due for its 80K service so I was looking for a garage that would do a good job a bit cheaper than SEAT's authorised service stations. I was given a link to WhoCanFixMyCar and used this to find garages in my area. Even though they are not that local to me, I chose ACS "in the dark" as they had an impressive number of good reviews, particularly an enthusiastic one in March by another SEAT owner, Maria; I was not disappointed. My car was booked for full service and MOT and Patrick was very prompt with messages and texts (even up to midnight) about this and subsequently the needed extra work to be done (replace brakes and tyres) - which was not at all unexpected in view of previous MOT advisories - and also the dreaded timing chain replacement as this had become very noisy. He was very helpful with guidance on what to be done now and what could be left until a bit later. However, as my car was with him for several days I did feel that later communications were somewhat infrequent, leaving me uncertain as to when I would get my car back. (I'd deduct a 1/2 point for this). This niggle apart, ACS were not the cheapest, but were reasonably priced (less than SEAT's prices) and gave me a feeling of confidence that the work would be done "to bring the car back to where it should be" to use Patrick's words. They collected and returned the car for me, and now that I have had the opportunity to drive it for about 200 miles, it feels good! I hadn't realised just how noisy the worn timing chain had been; the brakes (although I am still bedding them in) are now smooth and powerful, and the new tyres (Patrick's choice) seem much quieter than my old ones. It all feels like a new car. I'll be using ACS for again for further jobs - there are still some of those advisories to be completed!
Quick and smoth
Got an appointment for the day after I booked it. I arrived promptly, and they were ready to get started, which was nice. Work was completed quickly and efficiently.
Excellent service they were welcoming and nothing seemed a problem. I was quoted £350 for a clutch replacement but they checked the car first and only needed filters replaced so they did a full service also. Great lads, great service thank you I will be using you again.
Fast, friendly , professional would use them again
I would definitely Recommend J.W.AUTO very reliable Fast and efficient can get to you when needed prices are very good would definitely recommend him to everyone
Jay was really thorough! Before he did the dpf clean he gave the car a good look over first to find out what could have caused the issue in the first place, fixed 2 minor faults and the dpf with no issues at all. Jay fully explained what he was doing, what he was checking for and a step by step explanation of the repair. Fully recommend Jay and will be using him for any mechanical/servicing again.
Great guy, came out late on a Saturday and sorted my transit so I was ready to get me back on the road for work, did a dpf clean and regeneration well price and quick and efficient service
Called back within 1hr of the booking online and booked in to come to my house and complete the DPF clean. Don't let the cheap quote put you off they fixed the problem and gave me advice on stopping it happening again. I cant recommend them enough for efficiency, knowledge and quality of work

Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
