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.

An exhaust system has the primary function of guiding fumes away from a controlled combustion section of an engine. The exhaust system on a car is carefully designed so the fumes omitted from the engine can be safely transported away from passengers in the car.
The exhaust system is made up of a several parts, all of which could cause potential issues if damaged. Though you only see the tail pipe from the outside of the car, the exhaust system is a large system.
The exhaust ensures fumes are transported from the engine all the way to the tailpipe at the back of the car. The gas flows down from the engine to the flange and onto the catalytic converter, it then travels on to the muffler and resonance chamber before going to the resonator and finally out through the tailpipe.
All of these parts have distinctive functions with piping connecting them along the bottom of the car. Each section of the system has to be completely airtight and functioning properly to ensure the gases are released into the outside environment safely.
Because there are several components of the exhaust system and because it usually stretches the full length of the car, costs can vary.
Depending on the area, part and extent of the damage, you are likely to pay different prices. Some repairs may only consist of sealing a small leak whereas others may result in replacing entire pipes or elements.
If there is a leak in the exhaust system, there is a chance that engine performance will be negatively affected. This is due to the escape of pressure at the wrong point of the system.
It is essential that an exhaust system is not damaged as leakage could pose danger to those inside the vehicle. Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides could seep into a car if the exhaust is damaged. These gases are also extremely hot and would cause serious damage if they were to meet a passenger.
The piping in an exhaust system must be heat resistant due to the high temperatures of these compounds and if the exhausts integrity is compromised, anything close to the damaged area will be exposed to potential harm.
If your DPF is also blocked or not functioning properly, soot and particulate will escape from the system and cause damage to the environment and people in the surrounding area.
If there is an oil leak, there is only a very small chance that the problem is the exhaust system. This is due to the fact that engine oil doesn’t course through the exhaust like it does for a part like the head gasket.
However, if there is an oil leak, it may get into the combustion system and the result will be blue smoke coming from the exhaust.
A warning light will come on but it will not likely be the check engine light. This is because a problem with the exhaust will be detected specifically by oxygen sensors or the sensors in the DPF if your exhaust system is fitted with one.
A common symptom for a damaged exhaust is a loud roaring noise being emitted from your vehicle. This noise would indicate that you have a problem with the silencer part of the system. A common issue with silencers is corrosion by acidic moisture which is caused by a build-up of the damaging substance.
If a part of the system has cracked or a hole has appeared, you will be able to hear a hissing noise and a chugging sound could mean there is a blockage in the system. If the exhaust is leaking, the issue needs to be addressed immediately as the fumes are dangerous.
There is also a chance that the exhaust is leaking water, in which case, there is a crack or hole somewhere in the system as a possible result of a water leak from the head gasket.
If you hear the exhaust popping or rattling beneath your car it could mean that your exhaust has become misaligned and if you can hear a loud metallic vibration it usually means that something is hitting the exhaust pipe. It could also mean a clamp, mounting or support bracket exhaust is loose.
Hangers and brackets are essential for holding the system in place so if these parts become damaged there is a significant risk that the rest of the system will suffer damage as a result.
If you are able to get underneath your car, it is always the best way to check for signs of damage.
One of the most common issues associated with exhausts is rust build up, however this can often be a minor issue as some pealing of metal is not a huge issue.
If there is a build-up of rust on any part of the system, use a tool such as a screwdriver to see how strong the area feels, if the integrity is solid then the part won’t need replacing however if the metal feels weak when some pressure is applied, its time you get the part removed and a new one installed.
Black smoke coming from your exhaust means that your engine is burning more fuel than it should. This is often caused by a problem with your fuel injectors, air filter or fuel-pressure regulator. Alternatively, the fuel line could be clogged. Burning excessive fuel will have a noticeable effect on fuel economy meaning that you will be spending much more money getting from A-B.
If your exhaust in pumping out blue smoke, oil will have leaked into the engine and been burned in the system. This happens following the valve guide seals or piston rings wearing out and allowing engine oil into the combustion chamber. Engine oil is only meant for the lubrication of parts which are in constant contact with each other.
If engine oil is leaking into the combustion system, you need to have the issue addressed with an oil changeimmediately as low engine oil levels will be incredibly detrimental to your car.
If white smoke is coming from your exhaust, your car could be low on engine coolant from the result of a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block or a head gasket failure from overheating.
If engine coolant gets anywhere near the combustion chamber, the liquid will be vaporised and converted into a white gas which is then pushed out through the tailpipe.
If the exhaust is smoking thick black, white or blue fumes, there is also an issue with the system as the exhaust should not be blowing this colour of smoke. To find out why your exhaust is blowing smoke use our dedicated guide.
Car exhaust repair is a service which can be priced at a variety of levels. This is due to the fact that there are a number of things which could go wrong. For example, exhaust hole repair will vary as the size of the damage will be unique to your car and so the cost of exhaust replacement or exhaust pipe repair cannot be predicted, you simply need to get a personal quote from local garages using WhoCanFixMyCar!
