Last month we looked at just how diverse we are when it comes to servicing vehicles of all major brands from our garage workshop pictured below.
We want to make you realise that you can save money by coming to our specialist garage rather than going to main dealers. Major vehicle brands are continually introducing new technology to their vehicles. We want to show you just how specialist and effective we are when carrying out repair work on modern day cars and vehicles.
So here we go. Firstly we are going to let you know about our specialist side and how we invest in the very best technology giving us fantastic facilities enabling us to carry out reliable vehicle servicing.
Last year we invested over £100,000 in new vehicle technology. We invested £25,000 in a new state of the art electrical bay containing all of the latest technical vehicle diagnosis technology. Photos of our brand new electrical bay are shown below.
The advantage of having our own electrical bay is we can diagnose electrical faults with your vehicle more quickly and reliably. We can also diagnose electrical engine faults quickly and reliably. Here are photos of our specialist mechanics diagnosing an engine electrical fault from our electrical bay.
In our electrical bay we also have invested £5,000 in a brand new ADAS system. The ADAS system stands for Advanced Driver Assist Systems, these are things like camera sensors on the car that help you park, or systems that help you stay in cruise control when out on the motor way. When ADAS systems fail overtime we can help put them right for you, we can reconfigure ADAS systems and have all the technology to do so unlike a lot of main dealers.
The ADAS technology we have in our electrical bay is shown below.
We know just how important it is to invest in technology, we want to get to the very heart of a problem with your vehicle. That is why last year we invested £25,000 in a new autologic computer which can diagnose problems with your vehicle in an instant. The autologic computer we have invested in is shown below.
We can plug the autologic computer system into your car or vehicle and it will diagnose the problem and give us a complete description of the fault. The Autologic computer is specialist and state of the art, the system is updated with the latest information and the latest error codes. Having the latest updated information on vehicle faults only helps us service your car more reliably, this makes us one of the most reliable service garages in Cardiff.
Lastly we look at a new MOT test bay and service ramp. This investment cost us £50,000. What is special about this new ramp and MOT test lane is it is specialist for German manufactured cars, we can service other continental cars on this ramp however it is especially geared up to service Audi, BMW, Skoda, Volkswagen, Seat and Mercedes vehicles. Because we have this ramp means once again we can service your cars and vehicles more reliably. The ramp is pictured below.
The other specialist thing about this ramp is we can also reconfigure the tracking and wheel alignment on your vehicle. When the tracking and wheel alignment go out of sync over time we can put this right on your vehicle. Here are photos of us servicing a Volkswagen vehicle realigning the wheels and tracking on the car.
We hope this article has shown you just how specialist we are and, shows you just a few of the technological facilities we have at our car garage here in Cardiff. We are just as specialist as the main dealers if not more specialist. We have equipment at our garage you would be surprised to know the main dealers don’t have and making a £100,000 investment in technology shows complete commitment to our customers offering affordable and reliable vehicle servicing from our garage.
