About

We are an Independent VW Audi specialist but cater for all makes of cars and light vans.

Clover Autos Ltd was established in 1980 by Ronnie Fern M.I.MechE, A.A.E, I.Eng, M.I.M.I. after a five year VW & Audi apprenticeship with Abridge Engineering and then working for GTi Engineering at Silverstone Race Circuit building racing VW Golf GTis and Audi 80 GLEs, helping them win the British Touring Car Championship with Stirling Moss, Richard Lloyd and Tony Lanfranchi in 1979. Brother Dave Fern M.Diag.E soon joined him when he started up Clover Autos servicing, repairing and maintaining road cars and vans. They then set about building their renowned local reputation.

The Clover Auto guys fitted me in at short notice for a last-minute MOT on our Audi A1, which they did whilst I waited and watched. All ran to time, very thorough and all done with sensible Covid precautions. We had the car serviced at Clover late last year too. They really know their Audi's and, like other reviews on this site mention, are always very transparent, explaining carefully what work needs doing and why, and the pricing options. Wouldn't take our Audi anywhere else.

I had a problem with the catch mechanism on the driver's door of my VW Passat; it could not be opened from the outside and the handle appeared to be broken. I called Clover on Friday morning and they told me to bring it in. By lunchtime they had stripped the door to ensure they got to the root of the problem. Luckily for me, they found that it was not necessary to replace the whole lock, and somehow managed to repair the handle too. Both these parts would have been very expensive. They diagnosed the problem as the cable between the handle and lock, which had deteriorated and needed replacing. The cost of the part was just £11. Despite trying, they were unfortunately unable to get the cable that afternoon, otherwise the whole repair would have been completed same day. By lunchtime on Monday they called to confirm the repair was finished and that I could collect the car at my convenience. First class service from a polite and professional team that clearly know Volkswagens inside out! Highly recommended.

I have a VW Golf and have been taking my car to Clover Autos for the past 14 years. On my first experience with them, they identified a problem I had over the phone just by listening to my description of the issue. They solved the problem when others I had seen locally to where I live could not. From then on I have always taken my car to them. I find them friendly, helpful and efficient. I don't live locally to their premises, but choose to travel to them, as I have confidence in their ability to deal with any problem I may have with my car. On this particular visit they carried out my annual service and M.O.T. Over the years they have dealt with large and small jobs on my car.

Have used Clover Autos for many years now and have never been disappointed, always professional in their approach to every problem I have needed advice on, efficient and polite. They know their stuff, will advise on what needs doing and explain the problem in hand and what work will be carried out to solve it. I have had not very good experience of main dealerships in the past with delays in booking my car in and various delays for whatever reason, these guys are the real deal. Have always recommended to family and friends without reservation.

I have been using Clover Autos for over 20 years, and trust them completely to do whatever is necessary on my vehicle(s), and have never had a single cause to complain. They inspect the vehicle(s) thoroughly and notify me of any issues that might occur in future months, so that I am aware of them. They always check before doing any work, which they have noticed, but which is not scheduled. The quality of workmanship is second to none, and the price is below that of any main dealer, for the same work. I trust their work, and behavior, implicitly.

I had the PCV valve, approx 85,000 mile service, lower steering arms, 4 wheel alignment and new tyres carried out on the vehicle. From the intial fault finding right through to collecting the vehicle the service from Ronnie and Dave has been exemplary. The communication from both Ronnie and Dave through has been excellent, keeping me informed of the progress and where required after inspection of parts needing replacing. The standard of work and the facilities have impressed me immensely, a very professional and organised workshop. Ronnie and Dave are friendly and easy going, explaining everything and answering all questions fielded. Both look as though they enjoy their work and this reflects for me in the quality of service provided. Everything was carried out as they both explained in phone updates and itemised on the invoice. I collected the vehicle today (14th Nov 2020) and have covered around 150miles. The drive is quiet and smooth with the vehicle running the best I've know. I will be utilising their services again in the future for any guidance and work required on the vehicle. A very satisfied customer.

After experiencing severe delays with Ford main dealers in trying to book an MOT I telephoned Clover who booked the car in for the following day - just in time as the test was legally due the day after. The car was ready on time and had protected seat and carpet covers and an invoice and test certificate ready when I collected the car. I was impressed and pleased to discover a garage that made the process so quick and easy where the main dealer had so complicated and delayed such a simple task. I will use Clover for servicing in future.

I hae used Clover Autos several times and always found them excellent. Many repairers vary and can appear untrustworthy. Not here, Ronnie and Dave have vast experience and pass this on to the customer with great service and advice. This is rare in my experience of servicing and repairing many cars over the years. MOT service is also excellent. Keep up the good work you two.
