Clogged Mercedes DPF? Compare refurbishment and cleaning prices in seconds.
Great services overall. It’s just a shame my van was too far gone and not worth fixing
Excellent customer service and very reasonable prices, also the option to pay in 4 monthly installments and it's interest free, they will even collect your car from home or work and return it when it's fixed or theres a courtesy car option for free. Fantastic experience and I will definately be using them for all my mechanical work from now on.
Guys sorted me out at half the cost of my usual garage. Would defo recomend them.
Fantastic service from friendly staff. We were in Glasgow when car warning lights appeared and were unsure who to contact. Through whocanfixyourcar.com we were given Drivers Aotocentres Ltd to contact, who did a fantastic job in getting us back on the road. , The fault was much more complicated than at first thought, but they got the job done at a very reasonable price. Thank goodness we were directed to a reliable garage who obviously know what they are doing and charges in my opinion were very reasonable in the circumstances. Should I ever be in the area and have car problems I know who I will call. Drivers Autocentres Ltd are highly recommended.
Fantastic service quick and efficient will use again. Highly recommended
Great service and on time
Job done at an extremely good price (almost 1/3rd of main dealer cost) Car picked up and delivered back. No complaints at all. Will certainly use again and recommend to anybody.
Fantastic service from Auto Solutions. Collected my car and re-delivered to my house fixed within 48 hours. Price rose slightly by my own choosing due to them suggesting having the timing belt replaced whilst they had already stripped the car back. Highly recommend them and will likely be using them again in the future, super fast service.
good service, friendly people. Replaced timing chain, filters and all tippers. No more rattling noise when I drive!!
The perfect garage
Brilliant service. Collected and dropped off car with no problems. Car brake pads replaced and dealt with professionally from start to finish.
Job done quickly and will use this. Business again
Patrick Was very helpful, picked up and returned car and did a great job on the respray.
have owned my current car for 12 years during which time I have carefully maintained it. In the main it has normally gone to a main Ford dealer for servicing/repair work, however over the last few years due to the car getting older and moreso due to the ever increasingly over inflated prices that main Ford dealers charge, I have been looking for cheaper alternatives for repairs and subsequently have had several jobs carried out via this site. The first two jobs via this website were not good experiences due to poor workmanship and being charged for work that was never done. However my recent experience with this latest job has restored my faith in this site . Patrick the owner is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, he took the time to go on a test drive with me and confirmed the knocking noise that I was complaining about and identified the general area it was coming from. The car was booked in for repair the following week and subsequently when the car was in the workshop the mechanic quickly identified the exact problem part which was then ordered and replaced within an hour at a very reasonable price. The main Ford dealer who I had taken the car to prior to taking it to Patrick had actualy incorrectly diagnosed the problem and once again quoted a hugely over inflated price to get it repaired, it was the price they were charging that made me turn to this site again and this time I'm glad I did. The car is now back to how I'm used to it being and I would definitely recommend this garage and will certainly be using them again in the future
Quick and straight to the point.
These guys are brilliant, and always offer the best service at the best price. I've used them 3 times now and wont be going anywhere else. They collect from my work and always have it back, work complete the same day. Highly recommended! A+++
Garage collected and dropped of the car - quoted a second job at a very competitive price too! Everything fixed, no hassle. Would recommend.
Excellent service - competitive price - would definitely recommend this garage
Great job. Great price.
Clutch and flywheel replaced but found a hydraulic leak which needed a back order part. Kept me well informed and very apologetic as took a few days to arrive but quoted price of part first and didn't charge for its fitting. Great service.
Fantastic service delivered will definitely be my go to garage!!
Fast and efficient. Very impressed.
All work done to spec and cost
Fantastic same day service at a great price. Thank you do much.
Really good an busy garage,did a good job,friendly people working. I will be comming back and can recommend
Renault clio (65) £90 for full service labour only and mot. Parts supplied by owner. Guys did a great job and the mechanic had very nice manors and a funny sense of humour. Waited during the service and mot, was told it would take up to 2 hours but took 3 hours which was OK. They have KFC and chunky chicken near by to help u wait lol. Will use again for my next service. Traveled from Shaw which was about 9 miles away but worth it :) Mechanic left old parts in the bad as requested and my 1st mot passed. Thank you very much for the service. Wanted a good mechanic to do my fuel filter as its not an easy place to get to and didn't want my local shady mechanic to touch my car again. Oh I left about 4 chicken wings on your chair, sorry I forgot to take em, hope someone had them :) don't like wasting food.
I am satisfied.
I also had other work done . Full service brake pads all round and linkage arm was broken. It was booked for just the service but no problem for them to do the other work at the same time. Very happy with the work and price will return
The brakes were fixed quickly and well, the guys were very nice and kept me updated as the work was being done. Very good, and will certainly use them again.
Very friendly and explained everything to me, although he didn’t carry out the work, but I was happy with the outcome without charging me. Thanks
Great communications and prompt updates on progress and costs with friendly staff and receptionists. I Broke down due to a DPF issue and had to be recovered. Anthony messaged me to let me know that they had a DPF cleaning and regeneration service. He clearly explained that a DPF was the symptoms and victim of another issue. Due to this an investigation was carried out to diagnose what was seen to be the possible rote cause and issues including error warning lights on the console. Anthony managed to my knowledge to locate this issue being a faulty crank shaft sensor and other issues relating to a broken wire in the loom. He also did a Major service and while this was done discovered that its's extremely likely the last time I had a service with a Main dealer that the oil and filter had none be cleaned or changed. (something that I had already expected due to other issues) If Anthony has solved all my issues that had not been dealt with by previous garages this will have been the best garage I have used ever. Anthony is very good at assessing and explaining what problems are and effective solutions to them. I only say this as I just got the car back yesterday and don't want to be previous with my assessment but so far so good. Anyway I will be back in the new few months for the annual MOT and check up to see if everything went well. Only then will I be able to confirm everything. I would also like to note that from what I had seen quality tools, oils, lubricants and parts are used. Also and most importantly that no cutting corners or lazy fixes such as just swapping out parts till it works. If Anthony does not know the answer he will find out and help. I had enquired about getting my Air-con re-gassed and he suggested it was cost prohibitive for him to offer the service and to use another specialists. Thank you Anthony and team for as painless experience as possible with a garage. Mercedes A180 CDI (w169)
Friendly,efficient and good value ! Definitely would use again
Top man very helpful and honest guy! Would recommend to other people

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.
