Post Complete list...

I've read through the whole thread to find a garage in my local area.

I know there is this page of the recommended dealers

But below is a complete list of everyone that has been recommended.

Hope it help someone else out...

Lewis Reed (Renault/Nissan)
Woodchurch Road
0151 6089933

The level of service from the service dept is very high and if they make a mistake they do go to great lengths to rectify it.

M3 7FT
0161 252 0000

I have a 2002 laguna tourer 2.2 dci which kept going into limp mode on the motorway or with high revs and having been to my local dealer 3 times, yes 3 times and saying they cannot fix it.
Renault manchester came up trumps firstly they found the fault right away , which incidentley was a faulty EGR valve but to my suprise on picking the car up, they had not only washed it but gave it a mini valet and it smells like brand new inside. hows that for service. it didn't even cost me a penny luckily i have an extended warranty.

Telephone: (01483) 766634
Website: Field's Car Centre - Car servicing, sales and hire - 01483 766634

An independent garage that I gave a try as it was recommended on the Honest John website.
Not Renault-specific, but having used them 3 times so far (including the dreaded 72k service) I've found them to be excellent, with very reasonable prices. Guys behind the service desk and in the workshop are very friendly and helpful, and I've never had any issue with either the service or the work performed.

Dales Central Motors
Wheal Rose

Tel: 01209 821133
website:Dales :: Renault, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Seat and Used Cars in Cornwall

Sales staff very polite & helpful, but poor p/ex prices and not willing to negotiate that much.
Parts/Service - very helpful,polite and knowledgeable. Despite not buying car from them, they quite happily sorted a minor warranty fault and quite happily service the vehicle for us. Car has been washed on both occassions.
Loads of offroad parking in dedicated carpark at rear of premises.
Free - nearly new clean courtsey cars provided, with an optional £5 accident XS waiver ( otherwise £500 xs).

Benfield Renault
Newcastle Upon Tyne (East)

Benfield Road
Newcastle Upon Tyne
Tyne and Wear

0191 2650723

Not too sure if the place has a website.

The staff, especially receptionists, are friendly and will help you out. Had a bit of warranty work done there. Didn't buy the car from them so everything they did was helpful.

Leigh Park Service Station
Stockheath Road
Havant Hampshire
The guy in charge drives a Laguna 1 Estate and they charged £45.00 for fitting a new drive belt and £37.00 for fitting a new drop link including parts, labour and VAT. They were also very quick. At the other end of the scale go
to K-Tec Racing - Renault Tuning & Styling Specialists these guys supply and fit all sorts of goodies for all
smaller Renault's from R5 to Meganne II

Mark Askey Motor Services
Ripon Avenue
Stoke on Trent

01782 562277

I have used this guy a few times, once when the blip key went down on my 97 Laguna.
The local Renault dealer quoted me £500 to supply and programme 2 new plips. This guy did it for £200. T
Then the remote sensor in the roof on my Clio went down, dealer price £120, Mark Askey £25 which included a full diagnostics check on the car too.

Throttle cable snapped on my 172 on Friday, was told it would have to be a special order item so went to Renault Cardiff 5.00 pm Friday ordered and paid for the part was told it would arrive by the following Tuesday. Phoned Tues morning to make sure and low and behold it was there, picked it up fitted it today now a happy chappy again.

Mendal Motors, Bon Lea Industrial estate, Mandale Triangle, Thornaby. Stockton-on-Tees. TS17 7AQ.

Tel; 01642 602055

Mitchells @ Lowestoft and Lookers @ Chelmsford, both top people. Mitchells customer care is excellent, nothing too much trouble. Brought two cars from Lookers over Chrimbo - good deals and good customer service.
Have also used Toomey @ Basildon who were good, perhaps a bit functional but then they are a big set-up. Good discount on service + cam belt.

Hursley Road
Chandlers Ford

Rims Engineering,
rear of 8, The Causeway,
Middlesex TW11 0HE
020 8977 9891

Scott knows his onions and while I was picking up my Clio from him he spent a good half hour on the phone to someone who had gotten a warning light while motorway driving back from Scotland. He gave advice asked lots of relevant questions and reassured the guy at the other end. All this for a car that he had replaced a gearbox on a year ago for the previous owner!

I recomend the parts department of Arnold Clark in St Helens. I wanted some parts for my car and they came up with the goods in no time at all.
Don't know what the sales and service dept's are like though.

Recently purchased a 3 year old Laguna II sport-tourer from an independent dealer.

Booked it in to the above dealer for a minor service and MOT on the last day of its 3 year warranty. Rear suspension bushes worn but replaced under warranty without question. They also programmed a new key card that i purchased from fleaBay free of charge. But the best bit was the phone call a couple of hours after i'd dropped it off to tell me what they had found and when i could pick the car up. They also checked that there were no outstanding recalls.

Only downside is the fixed price servicing but given that their service was excellent i will be back there
