Overall very good. I decided to pay for an extra oil and filter change as well as it was recommended by the garage. That added to the cost but the car is running great since the work. Friendly staff and a quick turnaround.
From booking through David, to Jamie’s excellent customer service, also William who carried out the work on my car keeping me updated as he went along. Can’t recommend this Garage highly enough, I’ll certainly use again.
I would recommend this garage. The staff were friendly and happy to help. The work was completed quickly and they kept me updated via my phone.
Was very happy with the service I received and would use them again

Yes. They did more work than original estimate and appeared to have done a good job and good value . Very helpful.
Cracking service from these guys, picked my car up and had phoned with a price within 2 hours. Work was done that day, car feels much better and advised of a couple of things still needing done. Car was dropped back off also at no extra cost.
Great service throughout. The only garage to pick up the phone after they had sent me the initial quote and then to confirm the booking on the day Pleased with the service and work, would recommend
Can not recommend enough, final price included a service. Pick up and drop off of vehicle. Friendly helpful staff. Will definitely be my first choice in the future.
Excellent service. Car collected promptly and repaired the same day. Additional cost due to new battery being required. would definitely recommend.
Extremely helpful picked up and delivered car back. Polite and good communication. Would definitely use again
Great work, very competitive price
Excellent service, from collection to completion and car delivery, everything went smoothly without any issues.
Hi had problems of trust, I told Patrick about that issues due to bad experience in the past. But Patrick was very helpful all the time, he kept me informed of all process by sending me photos of the progress. I definitely go to use his garage again. Thanks Patrick
Excellent service couldn't be happier
Patrick is a gentleman and a mechanic I wished I knew years ago. Upfront and honest..
Very impressed with Goodfellas autoz,honest up front and thorough with diagnostics. Couldn't find a fault so offered to get it looked at with another garage (that they know well) for free
The final price was for both front ball valves. As usual a very professional job. The job was booked in and completed all in the same day. All work was carried out very professionally.
Diagnosed my car for free, quickly found the problem and offered me a quote. Thank you
rear disks and pads and front pads as well very good price quality work and finished in good time , will use again.
Payed £35 for diagnostics, said 100% it was the throttle pedal, ordered one in had it fitted for a further £90 including parts and labour car drives perfectly. Very friendly and knowledgeable will definitely be my local garage of choice from now on.
VERY quick response, could do exactly what I wanted
Car collected and delivered on time. Overall bill was lower than quoted. Hard to find such reliable and honest professionals in this age and date. The owner left the car even when the bill could not be settled; this demonstrates that they are in this business for service and satisfaction and not just money.
Great little garage hid away, did service on time as I required very friendly only thing I was disappointed with I did not get a copy of what they actually did or checked
Overall good experience, value for money however the fault not pin pointed but a few causes dismissed. Thank you.
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.
