30 years experience
We specialise in the repair and maintenance of Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Abarth cars. We also offer the same high quality of service to all other makes and models since we are not linked to a main dealer.
Dean has been the head mechanic in a main dealer for almost 20 years, coupled with the 10 years experience of our other mechanic Ben we are confident we can add you to our growing list of happy customers, regardless if you have had difficulties resolving a problem with your vehicle elsewhere. We are often utilised by other garages for the more technical problems.
One of the main areas we concentrate on is hugely reducing the cost of those particularly expensive jobs by sourcing parts direct from suppliers and also carrying out in-house reconditioning of many components that are only available as one whole unit.
As the Fiat 500 is now the most popular model in the range, up to 50% of our week is spent servicing and repairing these cars. You may be aware that these little cars can become quite expensive to maintain and repair as they age, but we have dedicated a substantial amount of time finding solutions to resolve these issues at a reduced cost.
We stock a vast range of parts for the Fiat 500 therefore if our suppliers are closed we can get your car back on the road swiftly. If you have any problems with your Fiat 500 which you have struggled getting resolved elsewhere, or if you would just like some friendly advice please do not hesitate to contact us.
Courtesy cars are available upon request, one of which is also a Fiat 500.

Fiat 500's built between 2008-2012 suffer with a weak heater control system which leads to an internal failure of one of the control flaps causing the heater to usually only blow cold air which during the winter months can be a very cold experience and also cause issues with de-misting.
In some cases it can also get stuck on hot so during the summer your stuck with driving an oven. If you have already had this fault investigated you will have probably been told that you will need a replacement heater box at a cost of a small fortune. Some dealers are charging over £2000 for this repair.
We have now come up with an in place repair which takes around 2-3 hours to complete and when finished your heating system will work like it did from new. We have now repaired in excess of 25 of these with no reports of the fault returning.
The cost for this repair is £160 so even if you are not located nearby it's probably still worth the drive. We have even repaired these for a number of customers that come from France.
Its not all about the Fiat 500
