With the modern vehicle becoming ever more complex, the need to make sure that your car is working correctly is now more important than ever. Automated car tracking systems, electric windows and reversing aids are becoming standard across the board and are likely to cause issue if you don't keep them well maintained. Car diagnostics are an in-depth car servicing option that helps you find fault within your car before they become a problem.
At Surlingham Garage we have the latest in modern diagnostic technology to help you get to the root of any vehicle malfunction. Below is a list of equipment that we have available.

We do not charge a huge premium for our diagnostics but do have a minimum charge of 28.80 including VAT which is based on 1/2 hour standard labour rate.
Car diagnostics are virtually impossible to price and Surlingham Garage realises there isn't a bottomless pit of money to pay for it. When booking your vehicle in, you will need to at least authorise us 1 hour's labour as, in our workshop, we find that most faults are identified within 1 hour (57.60 inc VAT). This time frame will give us enough information to produce a written estimate for completing your repair. Some faults can be very time consuming and, if after 1 hour your issue has not been identified, our team will call you to advise you on the situation before proceeding any further.
To book your car in for car body repairs and diagnostics, please call us on the number at the top of the screen and speak to a member of our team. Alternatively, come to our garage and discuss the procedures in more detail.
