"Having been told by my usual car dealer service centre that I was due for brakes all round, I thought I would check this out with another Subaru specialist. I was told that my brakes were not even 50% worn yet! They even took photos to show a comparison between my brakes and new ones. They were honest, helpful and courteous, highly professional AND gave me a lift to and from work. I cannot recommend them highly enough and they deal with all makes of cars. How refreshing to find honesty!“– Jill Harvey
