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!
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!
Great service at a fantastic price - lower than all other quotes. New clutch was fitted within three days of receiving quote even though this was requested on a Sunday afternoon.
Excellent service from start to finish
Brooklands couldn’t have been more helpful. From the original quote to me getting the keys back. Even a great cup of tea while I waited. Great job would use this firm again. Thank you. Note extra price was because I asked for extra jobs to be done.
Amazing and professional service. Took less than 30 min to fit and we were offered tea and coffee whilst we waited. Def a go-to garage for anyone looking for a fair price and an honest customer service. Thanks a lot !
Yes would recommend and use again. They did what they said at price, easy to deal with. Liked the whole who can fix my car service great way of finding good garage. Thank you

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.
Auto gearbox repairs are so common as the parts naturally wear down over time due to the fact that a massive amount of friction is caused between parts when a car is driven.
There are a huge number of issues that could cause a gearbox to fail and that is why we have written this guide, to help you understand what is involved with gearbox repairs.
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.
