Rip off.
Customer Service
My diesel car just needed EGR valve cleaned up, instead greedy staff recommended to replace the unit itself costing me 300 pounds, later I realised this job could be fixed for less than 50 quid. They don’t give honest opinion as they want you to go for the max costing solution because of their rip off attitude. Not Happy, I will never go again.
The trader replied (on 18/10/2017)
We are sorry to hear your are unhappy with our service. However given the same situation again we would do exactly the same thing. Nissans manufacturers guidelines insist that the part be replaced and not cleaned. If we had gone against manufacturers guidelines and just cleaned it, you would have been back in 4 weeks with the same problem as the condition of your valve was irrevocable. We actually tried to save you money by getting you a cheaper valve for £158 rather than going through Nissan where the part alone would have cost you £411.74. plus the £228 labour giving you a complete total of £639.74 which is more than double than what we charged you. We only added £7 profit onto the valve we fitted, and you would have had the same labour charges if we cleaned or replaced the valve therefore we had no reason to get you to spend the maximum! Your request to do the job without charging VAT without a receipt was declined as we work above board. I'm sorry you are unhappy but you did not fall for anything, we were half the price of what Nissan would have charged you and you received a good job not just a temporary fix. In the end the choice was yours, we did not proceed with the work until we had your go ahead. We do not rip customers off, we would never advise customers to get work done that is not needed. We pride ourselves on a good job for a good price and want to succeed through good work and recommendations.
Great garage

Customer Service
Eds really sorted me out this week. My car broke down, they arranged recovery for me and managed to fix my car the same day. They were so helpful and efficient, I will definitely be going there for all my car needs from now on. Highly recommend. Mark
