Quick service Thank you guys as well they gave me free advice about my clutch as well . Defo will be back . Cheers
Great service, job done quickly and good communication. Definitely recommend.
The price paid was for fitting only of a pre bought excust which carried out by friendly staff in good time and order. A job well done
These people were superb. Very friendly, helpful, and fair. They looked at the handbrake and calipers, and found that the cable had become loose, which they fixed for the price of labour only. The brakes had been binding but so far, having driven the car, they seem fine. I would highly recommend them.
got it done but they knackered my radio and dvd and kept ringing saying this was wrong and that was wrong with the car it only went in for a clutch so no I would not say I was happy also got no receipt on payment
Really good service, came and picked up the car and also stayed opened late for me
Extremely grateful for the whole experience with M60 Autos - Zac responds swiftly all the time, the speed of their repair is unbelievably quick, and every personnel I’ve met at M60 Autos is extremely helpful and professional. The most important thing is that they do CARE about you - they listen to their customers and try to help you out as far as they can, which is really impressive. I felt really really lucky to have found such an excellent garage, and I’ll defo go to them for any future car issues/servicing/maintenance. Highly highly recommended and thanks again so much!!
Original quote was £30, when I got there the quote was for £450 including a respray! Managed to talk them down to £160 and not do the respray, still way more than the quote. They also wern't able to take card payment as the paper on the roller ran out, so I had to drive one of the guys to a cash point and hand over cash, I was given no receipt. On the plus side the work was done quickly within a day.
Excellent service very pleased, collecting and delivered as promised, kept informed all through the day , would recommend these to anybody
They were brilliant!
Thanks for the service and advice.
Yes they did a good job. Work spaces were clear and I was shown the old parts that had to be changed . Price quoted was the price paid no problems .
Excellent workmanship, very happy with the work they did
Sound guy, changed discs and pads and give the car a once over and was very helpful. Would definitely use again and recommend!
Arranged to do the job at my home address the same day it was arranged at 6.30pm even though it was dark and it was raining and cold. Horrible weather and a real pig of a job to get at the starter motor in a Citroen C1 1.4 Diesel. However kept at it for 2.5 hours solid deally with rusted, inaccessible bolts and tricky positioning of part until car was up and running again. All with good humour. Sound guy and a good job and highly competitive prices. Definitely recommend.
Excellent, friendly and prompt service from a thoroughly nice guy! I would wholeheartedly recommend that you use Manchester Vehicle Solutions
Another job well done!
Arrived on time, very professional and courteous, and efficiently got on with the job. Delighted with work done. What's more, this was in the evening in sub-zero temperatures. I would definitely recommend and use again. Thanks Matt
Picked up and dropped off with ease for free, my car feels like it drives like new.
I used this garage because of its great reviews, I booked my car to picked up and taken to the garage for a full service and MOT. They picked up on time no problems, they rang me to say it failed MOT on light bulb which was dead, so I was told £10 to replace it, great stuff. They returned my car as agreed, the driver parked up outside my property, left my car in first gear with the handbrake OFF, I turned the engine on only to jolt forward at least 6 feet into the middle of the road, thankfully no one parked in front of me or driving towards to me as that would have been a definite crash. I then realised my front drivers side window I had to hold the button to open window it’s ususlly one touch! Then for the joke of it, my light bulb that it failed MOT for had not evrn been changed, it was still dead, I was so shocked, I checked around my car and noticed the wheels hadn’t been touched at all as there was no finger prints on the alloys. Which made think what have they actually done with my car! I rang up the guy was apologetic and said the technician will come to my house next day and fix bulb. He did come and took him almost 2 hours to change the bulb in VW Polo which apparently is not an easy job to do! The whole experience has left me feeling very unsure and nervous to drive my car now as I don’t know what’s actually been done to my car, I transport small children in my car on a daily basis so I like peace of mind when I have a full service and MOT, Unfotunately NOT this time. I’m sorry I can’t recommend this garage, I got no break down of the points they cover in a full service, no mention of any kind of guarantee on work undertaken,. Sorry I will not be using again.
Can't rate this garage enough and look forward to using them again. Communication from start to finish was excellent. The gentleman picked up the car from a friend's house and returned it to my house, complimentary, and with no issue. Full price included a Full Service of my Honda Civic, genuine Honda parts and two midrange tyres. Minor issue with a delay in delivery of the vehicle, however the car was away for only 24hrs and I was offered £10 off and a complimentary MOT in the future. Much appreciated. Very friendly staff, which is refreshing considering other garages.
Great helpful and friendly service and the owner Zaid kindly dropped me home and picked me up too!
Excellent and very friendly welcome upon arrival, the service was done very professionally and on time, although out of my local area,I had a little more to travel than usual the experience was brilliant and I recommend anyone to use their services as they are very competitive on price and value. Brian
5* service - Only got good things to say. Car was back on the road within a day and I have been on holiday driving around WALES with my car and it was a pleasure to drive again.
Fast response to my query, friendly and welcoming reception and fantastic customer service. Can't say anything other than praise
Fabulous. Brilliant service. Thank you Eddie.
First to reply to the job, good service had the car ready in two days after needing a change on the oil filter and timing belt.
I called Total Fix Service and they ordered parts, carried out the work and I was back on the road within 24hours. Would highly recommend this garage for their professionalism, speed and reasonable price for the works.

An interim service is carried out on a car by a mechanic, who checks a number of key components and parts of a car.
An interim service can be extremely helpful for finding minor problems before they develop into major ones as many parts of a car will naturally wear down over time. The ones at high risk will usually be checked during an interim service.
For a driver, having an interim service carried out is a smart move as you may not realise there is a problem developing and it could end up costing you even more money down the line.
It is also recommended that you should get an interim service every 6,000 miles.
What would you prefer, to replace a pressure gauge or have your car written off entirely due to the head gasket blowing!
The difference between a full service and an interim service is the amount of parts checked. As the name suggests, an interim service will be less thorough than a full service.
However, that does not mean that a lot is checked during an interim service!
In the next section, we will list what is checked during an interim service.
If you would like to know what is included in a full service, click here to see a dedicated page.
Engine oil is absolutely vital for keeping your car is good health and serious damage will be cause to a vehicle if there is low or none existent engine oil.
This is one of the easiest things to check and will always be included in an interim service.
Brake fluid is vital for the brake system as it is responsible for applying pressure to the pads and discs when bringing a car to a halt. If there is a small leak in the braking system, the liquid will inevitably pour out. This will then prevent you from braking all together so it is vital that this never happens!
During the winter months, if a car is left outside for an extended period of time, it will be subject to potential problems. Coolant is a liquid which runs through a car engine, keeping the level of heat and friction down, similar to engine oil.
The radiator needs to have a healthy supply of coolant to operate and keep the engine cool, which is why it is vital there is also enough anti-freeze in the system as well. If the coolant freezes and you start your engine in cold weather, your engine could overheat and damage could be caused extremely quickly.
Having enough windscreen wash may not strike you as critical, however, if you are driving your car and your view of the road becomes obstructed, you need to be able to wash your screen.
Like brake fluid, power steering fluid is checked in an interim service and the reason are exactly the same. Power steering fluid is critical for being able to steer a car and if there is a leak, or even air bubbles in the system, you will be in trouble.
If the problem is air bubbles, you can pump the clutch to resolve the issue, however, if there is a leak, a bigger repair will be required.
It is a legal requirement that you have working headlights so the wiring around rear and headlights will be checked during an interim service to ensure they are not at risk of cutting out.
Windscreen wipers naturally wear down over time and lose their ability to remove dirt and water from a windscreen. A mechanic will make sure your windscreen wipers are good enough to do this during an interim service.
The most common problem car batteries have is dying however, with a jump start, this problem can be sorted. A mechanic has no way of knowing if this will happen and so they cannot check for anything specific when it comes to this potential issue arising.
However, the integrity of a car battery could come into question and they can sometimes crack, resulting in battery acid spilling into the car engine. This is a very serious issue and so the battery will be checked for signs of damage during an interim service to ensure this does not happen to you.
The charging system is responsible for keeping your car battery full of power, if it is compromised, then it highly likely that you will suffer from a regular dead battery.
The alternator can be to blame for problems with the charging system and so will be checked during an interim service.
The most common issue the exhaust system suffers from is rust and leakage of dangerous fumes. There are several parts of an exhaust system which will be checked in an interim service including the catalytic converter which is responsible for taking the most toxic and dangerous elements out of the fumes created by a car engine.
A mechanic will mainly be checking for holes and rust when it comes to the exhaust system.
It is a legal requirement to have 1.6mm tyre tread depth in the UK as this allows a car to grip the road firmly, if it is any lower, you are actually breaking the law!
This will always be checked while an interim service is being carried out, as will a pressure check on your tyres.
A brake test will be carried out during an interim service to ensure your car is able to come to a stop properly. If your car cannot do this, there is a good chance the brake pads or discs have worn down.
Surprisingly, some drivers don’t realise that their steering isn’t what it is supposed to be which is why this service is provided in an interim service.
There may be a number of issues which would cause steering issues including wheel alignment, in which case, a simple fix is available.
The shock absorbers make up a part of the steering and suspension system and are self explanatory in their role in a car.
However, their effectiveness will drop over time resulting in a less comfortable ride for passengers. The large springs will be checked during a full service for degradation.
The suspension of a car is part of the steering system and so will be rigorously checked during an interim service.
As mentioned at the top of the text, an interim service can help identify problems before they arise as mechanics are trained to be able to recognise the signs of a part having issues at an early stage.
This means you will be able to avoid a serious and potentially dangerous situations developing in the future.
The cost of an interim service will vary depending on the garage and the car itself. At the top of the page you will be able to see what the average cost of an interim service is in the UK, however, you can get free and personalised quotes for an interim service using WhoCanFixMyCar.
