Hello everyone my name is Darren I have just moved here from England with my family where i owned a garage for some 15 years.  I am a main dealer trained master technician with vast automotive diagnostic and electrical knowledge.
  
We are in the process of opening a new garage in Arboleas called "the garage" with the latest dealer level diagnostic equipment and air conditioning service (opposite amigos bowling alley and next to storage solutions). We are a family run business with values and morals.  We will be specialising in Land Rover, Peugeot, Citroen and Vauxhall.  But all makes and models will be catered for.
We are not your typical fly by night cowboys; we are here for the long haul and plan on building a business to be proud of.  We take pride in what we do and our reputation matters. We hope to be open soon (fingers crossed).
 
 In the mean time if anyone needs any honest advice or help of the automotive kind i will be more than happy to do what I can to help you.
I have always believed that if you ask a professional to do a job whatever it may be and they dont do it properly and you are not happy then you should not pay them.
 
That´s why if we don’t do what we say we are going to do, you don´t pay us.  I´m very proud of my level of workmanship and honesty.  My reputation is far too important to me and providing a good service means so much more to me than just money.

My mobile number is 616453813
Many thanks
 
DARREN

Hi Darren

Good luck, I hope it goes well. As a matter of interest can you work on a Mitsubishi 4x4. Mine was a Grey Import to the UK which is now plated in Spain. Spares can be a problem, although you can get them from Madrid. Can you deal with this?

Hello everyone
We have a special opening offer.
We carry out a full air conditioning service on your vehicle with a state of the art aircon machine. It removes remaining gas then vacuums the system to remove any nasties and old dirty oil then checks system for leaks then refills system with gas and fills it with new oil (this keeps all parts lubricated and working correctly) then checks that system is operating correctly. Once we have done this we will carry out a health check on your vehicle, check all lights and fluid levels all for 49.95

A little word of advice : wherever you decide to get your air conditioning system checked and serviced , make sure they are using the correct equipment and refill with the correct qty of gas. There are companies out there that will refill your system the old fashioned way just using a bottle of gas, this is 1 - not the correct way of doing the job and 2 - could be fatal to your system as there is no accurate way of telling how much gas has been put into the system this will cause either damage if too much gas is added or won´t last 5 mins if they don´t add enough gas.

If your aircon service is carried out correctly and the system has no leaks it should stay cool for a year.
It is recommended that you have your aircon system serviced once a year this will prolong the life of the parts.

Many thanks
Darren

We took our car to Darren earlier this week as the A/C hasn't worked for a year or so. Darren checked the system through, discussed his findings and potential costs to fix, then diagnosed and rectified the fault. Very happy with the result and the amount charged, which was very reasonable. Thanks Darren. We are happy to recommend him. Thanks...

Darren,

Like to thank you very much for the advice and the use of a couple of your tools to get my Range Rover back on the road.

The Garage is a long awaited service that has been needed in this area for some years and I wish you the very best of luck in the future.

I own both a BMW and a Range Rover as you know so will be using your services in the future also.

All the best,

Colin & Sue.

Darren re-gassed my car last week.
Very impressed with the service received, and the fact that he investigated further, found the cabin pollen filter needed to be changed also. I was not charged for extra work and Darren even advised me to get my own replacement, (he had none in stock), and then showed me how to remove the glovebox to make the easy exchange.
He said if I wanted, he would order me one and then change it, but, as it was so easy, I should do it for free myself.
Very impressed and highly recommended.

Thanks again.

hello everyone
just a little reminder for those people who didn't know
we have main dealer level diagnostic equipment (same as the main dealer uses) which basically means in the right hands they are 100% accurate and can do many many different functions that other diagnostic machines cannot do

RENAULT , LANDROVER (RANGE ROVER) ALL MODELS NEW AND OLD , CITROEN , PEUGEOT , FORD , VOLKSWAGEN , AUDI , SEAT , SKODA , BENTLEY , MERCEDES BENZ , MAZDA , SUZUKI , VAUXHALL AND OPEL , JAGUAR , SAAB AND BMW

WE ALSO HAVE OTHER GENERIC DIAGNOSTIC MACHINES THAT ARE NEARLY DEALER LEVEL FOR ALL OTHER MAKES

ITS TAKEN ME MANY YEARS HARD WORK TO BE ABLE TO BUILD UP SUCH A COLLECTION , WE KEEP ALL OUR EQUIPMENT UP TO DATE AND HAVE MAIN DEALER TECHNICAL BACK UP IF REQUIRED

DIAGNOSTIC SCANS AND REPORTS AT VERY REASONABLE PRICES 

many thanks to all our new customers for there on going support its very much appreciated

I took my car to Darren as I have been having very bad vibrations when driving. He said put it up on the jack and saw the problem right away. I had to go to Alicante yesterday and the car ran better than it has for months. The price was very reasonable and the service was great. I can recommend Darren and his team to anyone. I was certainly pleased and Darren has all my business in the future. Well Done Darren.

Had a problem with a soft spongy brake pedal so called in to see Darren he tested the brake fluid
and recommended a complete flush of the system,took machine two hrs for flush and renewal but
what a difference pedal is now hard with instant response.
Not sure but he may have added a little Viagra to the fluid :D   Ian

Had my Air Con re gassed today at The Garage.
He checked the air in the tyres for me ( as I don't have a clue ).
Very nice fella, knowledgable without bulls**t.

Did what he said he would and charged what he said he would charge. No messing.

Well done The Garage. The best of Good Luck.

I'm another that popped in for aircon re-gas, which was done on the spot. My Renault decided it wasn't going to play ball, and kick in when it should, so one extensive diagnostic test later which I saw, (that is some kit by the way!) and a kick up the pants for the brains in my car, and it was working again!!
Cheers folks, as Arnie says....I will be back  ;D  :tiphat:
