Good price and service. Would use again
They were great
I needed my clutch replacing, and was given a very competitive price for this. I took the car to the garage aware that the flywheel may need to be replaced. This was the case. The mechanic kept the damaged flywheel to show why it needed replacing. The service was efficient, priced competitively, and the receptionists were brilliant. I have a 12 month warranty on the work that was completed, and am very happy to recommend this garage.
Excellent service and excellent price. Used twice now. Not local to me but worth the bit of traveling.
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!!

Very happy with the work they've done
Great service, no nonsense garage, would use again!
Great service and great price.
Did a good job , second time I have used them. The only reason I gave them 4 stars , they were not on time when picking up the car and returning it. I would still recommend them to other people.
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
Great price and mobile. Definitely recommend
The best garage in all the UK!
Great Friendly Service. would definitely use again.
Great service very helpful and friendly guy pick up my car and drop off the time suits me and price was very economical as compared to others
Outstanding communication from Sarab - due to the demands of my just have no time to take vehicle to any of the local garages and waste time waiting for an MOT and service to be done. Price was very good and no problems at all. Just missing scoring 5 because I would have liked to see the type of paperwork issued by Halfords and Equipment where mechanic has ticked off all the components of the service - just for reassurance more than anything else but been told they would look into doing that. Will definitely use again for my next MOT and service.
They took the car, did the MOT and Service and dropped the car back off again. Very efficient and stress free. Thank you
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.
Great price and speedy service. Would definitely recommend.
No nonsense service while I waited. All working as expected. Would use again.
CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GARAGE. A PROPER GARAGE WITH GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. AFTER SOME BAD EXPERIENCES WITH OTHER GARAGES IT WAS A PLEASURE DEALING WITH THEM AND TO DRIVE AWAY NOT FEELING LIKE I HAD BEEN RIPPED OFF
Job done and carried out. Found one fault which they charged reasonably for and was fixed the same day - no complaints here!
Excellent service provided by Zaid and the lads nice cup of coffee , and even offered me a spot of lunch!. Will be in touch in a couple of months for front discs and pads . Best wishes too you all .
Great service, very polite and helpful, job was done in the estimated time and the car was ready without any delay. The price was as estimated online. Will definitely service my SEAT Exeo with them 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.
