"Very happy with the service "
"I had my MOT due, however I also had two children with me a holiday club to get to and a baby with chicken pox... so I needed my car to be out of action for as short amount of time as possible. The wonderful lady who booked us in really worked her magic to make sure everything went like clockwork and the car was only gone for as minimum amount of time as they could. Car flew through, guys were lovely as always, been going to Johnson’s for years now. The new premises are looking great too. Thank you all. Can’t recommend them enough."
"Wish I'd brought my summer discount paper flyer with me for the 15 % discount on repairs, but I'll definitely be returning my car, when required, in future"
Efficient and friendly
"Happy with this garage from start to finish"
"Quick and easy"
"Proffesional and good job"
"Quality of the work is great, have absolutely no complaints. Communication during the work could have been much improved as I often had to call to find out information such as if the repairs would take more than one day - which for most people is quite important information. They would also call much later than expected; was told that they would phone first thing in the morning with a quote for repairs however I didn't receive a call until almost 11. Overall good, but did find them a bit expensive and they could improve communication."

A heritage German brand that has been a favourite for decades, it’s hard to throw a stone without hitting someone who owns or has owned a Golf at some point in their life! It’s essentially a rite of passage for anyone searching for a safe, reliable, and family-friendly car.
Interestingly, Volkswagen has three cars in the top 10 list of best-selling cars of all time - the Volkswagen Golf, the Beetle, and the Passat. Not bad, right?
Known for their reliability and value for money, VWs have long served as a reasonably priced little sibling to the more luxurious Audi, receiving excellent reviews across the board when it comes to the motoring press. You’d be hard pressed to find a range of cars as practical, safety-conscious, attractive and just generally good to drive as a Volkswagen.
“Dieselgate” - The Recent Volkswagen Scandal
Traditionally, Volkswagen has long enjoyed a reputation as a trustworthy manufacturer of high-quality vehicles. The recent emissions scandal has put a bit of a dent in that, with the company admitting to cheating on official tests. This means that certain diesel-powered Volkswagens built between 2009 and 2015 may be responsible for more pollution than one would suspect after looking at official figures. These cars could be recalled sometime in 2016.
However, scandal aside, VW has a wide range of models spanning the budget spectrum, with a variety of models to match (petrol, electric, and hybrid included). The previously mentioned Volkswagen Golf has recently entered its eighth generation, and the traditional three and five door options now have a wide variety of alternates joining them. With estates, cabriolets, GTI and R models, and even a fully electric version, the Golf range is where you can find almost anything you’re looking for.
Other popular Volkswagen models
If you’re on the hunt for a good value SUV option, the Tiguan and Touareg will both be right up your street. The Scirocco is a great choice if you want something a bit more interesting, and of course, the quirky new Beetle is a popular choice.
Common problems with Volkswagen
There have been complaints about the electrics in the “new” Volkswagen Beetle, and occasional issues with the check engine light staying on. Excessive tyre wear has been reported for the Passat, and convertible roof problems have also been noted with the Volkswagen Eos. Seat belt issues and air bag problems are sometimes relevant for drivers of the Golf, e-Golf, and Jetta. The Volkswagen Passat is also worth keeping an eye on, as it has had issues in the past with complaints about engine failure from oil sludge.
Not to worry if any of these problems affect you though - we are here to help you find a good Volkswagen garage near you that can sort you right out.
