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.

Loss of power caused by faulty throttle potentiometer
Customer Service

I dropped my car off and after explaining the loss of power, was greeted by Ronnie, the owner, who was an extremely polite, professional and understanding man. He treated me as if I was his only customer and asked me lots of questions to help him better understand the problem. He explained a thorough diagnosis would be conducted using a computer and visual inspection to ascertain the problem. He loaned me a hire car(no charge!) and explained he would contact me ASAP with his findings, which he did. The problem was caused by a faulty throttle potentiometer which was changed and the old parts were left in a box in my car; they like to let customers see which parts have been changed. Again Ronnie was extremely polite, professional and not rushed when explaining everything they did in detail. I unhesitatingly recommend Clover Autos for being a breath of fresh air in delivering outstanding customer service in an honest, polite, and professional manner. As a teacher with over 10 years experience delivering customer service courses, I speak with some authority on the subject. Bravo Clover Autos, I will not allow any other mechanic to work on my car, but you.

Went to Clover Autos with a problem on my ABS, they were so good, kept me informed at all points, and fixed it, whilst keeping the cost down. I will always take my car here for further services and repairs, they do a great job, while being honest, pleasant and not ripping you off.

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.
