I used John of trader after reading the reviews on his website, all of which was singing his praises. I am pleased to say I wasn't disappointed and he solved my problem with my dpf on my jag xf. What's more he solved the problem for £160 after I was quoted £2000 to change the unit as the only way of curing the problem. If you have a jaguar you can not do any better than taking it to John to sort out any problems. I highly recommend John and want be taking my jaguar anywhere else in the future.

I have been using Kinghams for many years. A courteous and efficient service. I paid £40 for an MOT just yesterday. Only took 45 minutes.

I first went to them for a private estimate for repairing my aged Honda Jazz. They were friendly and sent a thorough estimate by email later that day. The estimate was for less than I feared, though that may have been my good fortune. My insurers later agreed to pay for the work to be done as per the estimate, so all I had to pay was the insurance excess. I now have the car back and everything is fine. It has all gone very smoothly.

Stephen now organises all my car repairs, MOT etc as I totally trust him - I have been using him for a couple of years. Finally i don't need to worry about being taken for a ride as I don't understand anything about cars.

I've had my car MOT'd here for many years. Recently they came to my home to jump-start my battery, and replaced the battery quickly and for a reasonable price. I've called in with other minor problems and they haven't charged me at all.

After issues with another garage I found Pat via Which Local. We are very happy with his work which is of a very high standard. Will definitely go back to him again for all our car needs.

I had my VW Tiguan serviced at a dealership and had some work at the same time to get it through the MOT on Thursday. On the following Sunday whilst driving on the M11, the engine fault warning light and the exhaust warning light came on. After reading the reviews on here, I decided to go to Cobra instead of back to the expensive dealership and booked it in for the Tuesday. Fearing the worst when I dropped it off, later that day I was told that the fault had occured due to a clip on the turbo coming loose. This could have been caused by someone damaging it, so my thought is that it could have been a problem caused by the dealership, though this cannot be proven. In any case Cobra fixed the problem and by Tuesday afternoon, I was back mobile again. I was really impressed by the efficiency, courtesy and knowledge of the mechanic and team at Cobra, most impressive was the honesty and it cost me very little to get it fixed, which was a huge relief. I will be coming back to Cobra for all my work in the future and have already planned to take it back in a few days to have some new shock absorber bumps, which are wearing to be replaced. I am a very happy and satisfied customer.

My van broke down outside a petrol station with a car mechanic set back behind it a few years ago, I've never trusted back street mechanics so logged into which local for reviewed and nearest to me and was surprised to find the one id broke down by on whichlocal with 6 fantastic reviews so I took the chance and used them and was not disappointed, I've been using them ever since they have changed ownership over the last year and a bit but still remain consistent in service, reasonably priced and great to deal with thank you trader for restoring my faith in local back street mechanics :)

I have used trader for many years (MOT and Servicing). However, I didn't understand what an exceptional bunch they were until I became ill. They bent over backwards to keep me on the road and always recommended the most cost efficient solutions.

I have now been using this garage for several years. I always have my annual MOT and servicing carried out by them, as I do with repairs. I can see no reason to consider changing, they always fairly priced and obliging. Last used 1st Sept 2014.
