At Newtown Garage we conduct onsite Mots, the Mot is a legal requirement for all vehicles over 3 years old, with the purpose of making sure that your car meets the minimum safety requirements. Without a valid MOT, your car insurance and road tax become invalidated and your car may not be road worthy. Therefore it’s important that you make sure your MOT certificate is in date and you book your next MOT before your current certificate expires.
Newtown Garage can service vehicles still under the manufacturer’s warranty (Manufacturer’s warranty is unaffected). All servicing is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer service schedules. For vehicles without a paper service book we are able to access the manufacturers Online Service Records. This allows us to check on service history and more importantly record your new service. This ensures that any warranty requirements are met and helps to maximize resale value.
Technical issues can affect the performance, safety and comfort of your vehicle. Using Genuine diagnostics equipment ensures efficient and accurate problem solving. We are also able to program and update vehicle computer systems.
With mechanical car repairs it is important to know that in many cases, you should get them put right as soon as possible. Often, delaying repair work can cause further damage and in some cases, not getting something fixed can be unsafe and illegal. Regardless of what repairs you require, at Newtown Garage we are here to help.

Air conditioning is an important part of our driving comfort these days, ensuring a pleasant and healthy environment. So, it’s a nuisance to turn on the aircon and find that it’s not cooling or filtering as effectively as you would like. In fact, a poorly maintained system may even contribute to a less-than-fresh atmosphere in the cabin. The answer is a yearly air conditioning service.
A diesel particulate filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to reduce emissions from diesel cars. But because they only have a finite capacity, this trapped soot periodically has to be emptied or ‘burned off’ to regenerate the DPF. Using the latest technology and products at Newtown Garage we can help to clean your DPF to reduce carbon emissions.
Electrical faults have always been tricky to deal with – it’s a job that calls for a workshop with specialist skills and equipment. Electronics are involved in many aspects of the running of a vehicle these days. The interactions between ecu’s, wiring, sensors and software can be complex, making it a challenge to diagnose and fix faults.
Approved by the DVSA to make number plates, at Newtown Garage we can supply and fit number plates to all vehicles. We also cater for 3D and gel plates.
Does your car have a timing belt or a timing chain..and when does it need replacing ? Timing chains originally would last the life of the vehicle but in today’s engines, things look different. Chains dont have a replacement interval specified by the manufacturer, but they often need replacing early due to the weak chain being elongated. The Timing belt is more durable and has specified interval replacements set by the manufacturer. It’s very important you replace your Timing chain or Timing Belt when it’s due for changing.
Wheel refurbishment makes corroded, pitted and curbed wheels look like new. We can have your alloy wheels refurbished, straightened and have most cracks welded. Finishes include having a painted and diamond cut finish or both. We supply and fit most brands of Tyres at competitive prices, we also offer Wheel balancing and tyre puncture repair services. We can also fit and programme tyre pressure monitoring sensors. Wheel Alignment (also known as tracking) is very important for a vehicle and the advantages of correct wheel alignment are: reduced tyre wear and to ensure that the vehicle travel is straight and true (without “pulling” to one side).
