"The guys were great and really friendly. Top notch job!"
Good service overall
"Good service overall. Needed their loan car for 4 days due to parts supply problems but no issues at all."
"Happy with the customer service and quality of how quickly it was done"
"Had MOT done, excellent service, easy to book online, will use again"
"I left the car at 0900 and went for a walk in the lovely town of Kirriemuir. By not long after 1000, Barrie called me to say the MOT was complete. The car was washed too. Thanks."
"Friendly helpful staff"
"Had an MOT carried out on a 2014 car and they call me up to say to pass its MOT its front brake pads need replacing and advisory that the front discs also need replacing , had to have front pads done as require the car for call outs due to job. Bit suspicious about the front discs needing to be replaced so will be getting a second opinion when get the chance. Also not sure if they replaced the oil with the correct one as stated by the manufacturer as when I watched them they took it from a big drum they had in the work shop."
"Overall I was happy with the service we were provided. However there was a customer poster on the wall that stated that they will return your car freshly washed after a service and our car was not cleaned when I came to collect it. This would have been a really nice if this had been done. Also I was told that we would need new tires and that someone would call on Monday with a quote for us and I have yet to hear any thing back. Those few things would have really improved the experience. I did appreciate the courtesy car for the morning and think this is a great option to have available. The website is also very easy to use for bookings."

The clutch is perhaps the most important part of a car’s transmission system. It comprises two metal plates which are responsible for maintaining a connection between the engine and the gearbox. When the driver depresses the clutch pedal the plates come apart, separating the engine from the drive wheels, allowing you to change gear. Bringing the pedal back up re-engages the plates which in turn connect the engine to the drive wheels.
Excessive noise and vibration from the clutch area can be caused by a bad release bearing or pilot bearing. If this is the case in your car, the garage will take apart the clutch assembly in order to replace the bearings.
If the clutch is grabbing and shuddering as it’s engaged, the garage may need to take a look at the flywheel as well. Many modern vehicles are fitted with a dual mass flywheel; a rotating mechanical device which can break down. There’s no easy way for garages to check for this without disassembling the clutch and inspecting the pressure plate and flywheel. If the clutch pedal is giving little or no resistance, the problem could be a seal leak in the master or slave cylinder.
Japanese firm Subaru’s heritage comes from the skies: the company developed out of the Nakajima Aircraft Company (1917-1945), which in its day was the largest aircraft manufacturer in Asia. In 1954 the company debuted its first automobile with the Subaru 500, Japan’s first mini, but Subaru’s story really started in 1972 with the launch of its symmetrical all wheel drive. It’s this factor above all which makes Subaru stand out from the crowd - 4x4 is standard on every car that Subaru sells in the UK (apart from the Justy city car).
Subaru currently sells seven models into the UK including the popular Outback, the original ‘crossover’ and a trusty and tough SUV. Other much loved models include the Forester, a slightly smaller SUV ideally suited to rural driving, and the Impreza - a rally champion turned practical family car.
Subaru owners display impressive brand loyalty, and for good reason. These cars are known for their longevity - it’s not unusual to see Foresters and Outbacks on the used car sales boards with over 200,000 miles on the clock. Part of the reason for this is Subaru’s unique flat-lying ‘boxer’ engines, with pistons which punch horizontally, like a boxer, rather than up and down as in a traditional engine. This means less vibration and friction, and better lubrication, particularly on start-up. In some ways, Subaru build cars which are seemingly almost indestructible! For safety and reliability across the board they consistently score very highly indeed with drivers and independent reviewers.
Located in the Thames Valley to the west of London, Reading in Berkshire is not too well-known as one of Britain’s must-visit towns. However, once you get there, you’ll discover a surprising amount of things to see and do. It is sometimes described as being on London’s commuter belt but the influx of daily traffic outweighs the outflow due to the large number of tech companies and international businesses which have made Reading their home.
