Good service would definitely recommend!
Great, despite me complicating things with a wrong part I bought in advance Peter was very flexible to return and despite extra work kept the original cost, car running as good as new, thanks!
I am very pleased to write a review for this company. The mechanic,Paul could not have been more helpful. I asked for this service for my daughters car as it broke down on her and she needed to get to university. The response from elite was great and the skill level of Paul was second to none. He was faced with a problem that other machanics were unable or unwilling to fix and all others told me they would have to uplift the wee car. Paul located the problem and had her back on the road the next day. Cant thank them enough for their help. My daughter has noe arranged for Paul to come back and service her car and I am going to get him to do my car as well. I have recommended this company to my son and to my colleagues at work and will continue to recommend him to anyone I meet who needs car repairs
Would high recommend this garage, I would have had trouble getting my car to a garage and Peter from Elite came to my house to carry out the work. Peter is the most dedicated mechanic that I have ever met, and the prices he charges is without a doubt the most competitive around. I will use Elite again and will recommend to family and friends
I can honestly say, that this garage (Robert) was SO professional, courteous and prompt. I didn't actually think there were any garages left that provided this level of service. Thank you very much. My car is an old banger but Robert was still informative and realistic as to its diagnosis. Thank you very much, I wouldn't hesitate to use this garage again. AND they were by far, the cheapest quote!
I would recommend this garage to friends and family cheaps in town good work done.
They took care of the rust, sprayed some undercoating plus did a full MOT check and fixed a few other issues. My L200 now looks much happier. All of this when other garages refused to even try and fix the car. Satisfied customer.
Happy with service would use again
Excellent job and value good advice very happy with service.would recommend no problem
Great customer service, Stephen was very friendly and informative. No problems with car service, as priced. No hidden charges, work carried out to expectations and as agreed. Will happily use again.
Had a problem with car radiator and needed the work done immediately Michael fitted me in and repaired the thermostat housing and gasket and added the antifreeze was delighted with the work done and attention received will certainly be using this garage again when my service is due big thank you and well done Michael
Really convenient as work was completed at a date and time which suited me. Turned up when agreed. Job completed quickly. Sheets laid so no mess to the driveway. Good price. Will definitely use again

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.
