Great service. Knowledgable staff who were polite and very helpful. Good job done with an update on completion via phone call. Great garage, would recommend and use again.
Picked up and dropped off to my work. Additional work done outside of what was quoted, fair price and still managed to get it back to me on time.
Cheapest in glasgow.
Friendly, and very informative
Good communication and servicing. Will use again.
The best value for money you can get in and around Crawley by far !!
Great garage, did the regeneration of my dfp in my car which did not fix the problem, they did not charge me for the work they did because it did not work, despite them spending over and hour trying to sort the problem. They were very honest and you don’t get that much anymore and it was thoroughly appreciated.
Many thanks. Will deginitely use again
First class, professional and courteous service completed on time at an excellent price. I will be bringing my car to this garage in the future.
Very quick oil and filter chabfd
Brilliant service, took the length of time he said it would and cost what he had quoted. Taken on time. Very professional work, extremely happy with it! Would use again
I had a timing belt and water pump replaced in Seat Leon. Car was picked up and returned as promised. Good communication, price as previously quoted, everything went fine. I'm appy with the place and would recommend it to others. Thanks :-)
Great service picked up and dropped off car for me and work carries out and car running great again
Amazing and super fast service by Paul and Auto Solutions!! Had new pads, rotors and caliper fitted in less than 1 hour 30 minutes when other garages where saying at least a day. Even offered to come and collect our car as we hadnt pre booked the work. Highly recommend!!
Sorted my brakes had a long wait but the garage was busy. Will use again..
l would use your services again.l would recommend your first class job.
Good fast service from this garage used them a few times
Excellent service. Same day diagnosis, left with them overnight and full repair completed next day. No issues since. Great all round customer service.
Amazing service! Fitted me in at short notice and remained in contact throughout to let me know exactly what was being done. Will defiantly use again and will highly recommend.
Good, honest and speedy service. I wont go anywhere else from now on. The garage offers a great level of customer service and regular communication. Any faults found there's no obligation (pressure) to have the work done (as has been my experience with other garages used previously) I received a quote for new discs and pads that wasnt extortionate and compared to other garages seemed to be the fairest and most comprehensive! While Automotive Components had my car they ran a full diagnostics and fed back the results in a straight forward terms I could understand. They even fixed my Parking light for free without quibble. Another nice touch is they collected my car, made the repair and dropped it back. A very grateful BMW 1-Series owner
Engineer was very helpful and gave us a run through on what was done even had the parts that were removed and showed us all the wear on them .Works were completed in the time that was given , overall excellent service was given by this garage .Was given a price for all the works that needed to be done and the final I’ll was exactly this ,no hidden charges or extras . Will definitely use again and pass on to friends and family. Was also given a car to use on the day even though we hadn’t pre-booked .
Excellent knowledge and indepth information and willingness to rectify any faults. Would highly recommend.
Got the car back today everything ok Patrick has done a great job replacing my turbo at a great price and having the car picked up from my house and delivered back on Time when I live 35 miles away at no cost is a bonus thanks Patrick will use you again
The guys at Eagles Autos, did a great job, working on find a solutions to my car, unfortunately the car being a Lexus every part is more expensive then normal cars, but this is not Eagle Autos fault. Very happy on their service if ever in need of break pads or any other work I would come back. I recommend this garage for their service and punctuality on getting it done.
They did a great job
Excellent service and happy with the repair.
Great friendly and professional service who found and fixed the existing problem and was given more advice about my vehicle and the diagnostic
Well what a happy chappy I am! Last week when I first contacted Jay about my car being in 'limp home mode' and my belief that it was a DPF issue he told me that there was 'usually' an underlying issue which he could diagnose. Anyway today I called him and he and his co-worker Mick turned up at my place of work to conduct his investigation. As soon as the bonnet was opened, without any diagnostic equipment being connected and the fact that my 2011 Saab 9-5 is fitted with the Vauxhall A20DTH engine, he just put his hand down to the turbo intercooler output pipe and showed me his fingers covered in an oily mess and confirmed it to be a perished/split hose and informed me that he had done 4 of these hoses last week!! He left me to go and collect a hose, returned and fitted it along with putting 2 cans of DPF100 cleaning fluid directly into the DPF having removed a very sooted up Lambda sensor. He then put nitrogen into the MAF sensor, checked his diagnostic equipment that there NO trouble codes stored, and there wasn't. Via this equipment he then performed a static DPF regeneration and then that was it. Driving home was an absolute pleasure and the car performed better than ever. Absolute superb service all round. Told me exactly what he would be doing and he let me watch!! Can't recommend Jay highly enough and any DPF type issues you may have, then he's the man to call. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

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.
