Great job done. Fast and friendly. Needed more done than I thought but they did the repairs for a good price.
Great guys, amazing service. Felt like I was in safe hands and will go for all future car needs.
Very quick and prompt diagnosis
Excellent service. Booked in and work was completed as promised within the timescales agreed. Highly recommended
Took my car down to Silvio and he diagnosed the fault as a catalytic converter fault. Replaced it within 24hrs and the did the back brakes as well. Gave me a courtesy car and got me out of trouble. Cannot recommend this garage enough. Don’t want to though as this will create queues. Thank you and car runs like a dream.
Work carried out as requested within few hours
Excellent service from start to finish, felt comfortable being a woman motorist and everything explained clearly i definately found myself my new go to mechanic. Fitted a air con motor for me whilst fitting a cam belt and water pump , highly recommended!!
I would recommend this garage and particularly Patrick, very honest person and thedelivery driver who picked up my car. Brilliant service from start to finish.
Easy booking, clear communication throughout, fast responses via text or email, honest and transparent diagnosis. I'd definitely recommend this garage and in particular Patrick.
Another job was completed with my pre-consent (rear breaks) all was explained so well. Patrick is great at keeping me informed throughout and love his honesty no pressure.Patrick kindly informed me on an advisory basis the the rear break would eventually need doing hence the decision to have both oil change and breaks done.This is a garage that I highly regard not only for the high standard of customer care but the honesty throughout.The price is also good which is another added bonus.Needless to add that I highly recommend ACS Ltd .A FIVE STAR + SERVICE.
Very happy with the work carried out and received helpful advice from Patrick.
Brillaint work and very quick turnaround time. Thankyou!
Very friendly and helpful Found items that were vital for car safety and fixed them.
Brilliant garage,My clutch went need the car for work had the choice of 4 other garages that were closer chose this one because of the reviews,glad I did... Brilliant experience, no hassle,very friendly, kept updated what was happening, had car back on the road 24 hrs later... Very happy
Dropped my car off early Saturday morning and it was ready in just over an hour. I wholly recommend this garage. I will be returning in a couple of weeks to get the MOT done.
Good efficient service - would use again
They were very helpful, had 3 quotes over £2500 for new gearbox, but Auto Solutions fix gearbox issues without buying and fitting a new gearbox. Also organised tow truck, MOT and repairs all within 1 week. Thankyou Drew
They managed to locate and fix the electrical fault and drain that had been plaguing my car for months and other garages couldn’t locate. Highly recommend!!
Good experience generally, felt fairly treated and reasonable price. The work did take a couple hours longer than expected, though this may have been due to slow delivery of a part. The garage's communication with me through the day definitely could have been better. I had to keep calling them because they didn't call me with any updates, and when I showed up at the end of the day, the car was ready even though they hadn't yet called me.
Very nice and friendly people. Job done timely and within quoted price. I will definitely recommend and use them again myself.
The service was great and got the big suspension job done quickly. There was a misunderstanding about the pricing but the total quote was competitive.
Exceptional service provided, incredibly polite and helpful. Will definitely use this guy again!
Very good service
Quick friendly service. Will definitely use again.
Excellent service and price
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.
