You can visit our local workshop, based in Dartford, to ask for our assistance.
When you come to us for full or interim car servicing, we want to make sure your vehicle runs smoothly and reliably. Our range of solutions include mega flush services and automatic gearbox repairs which help to reduce the potential for breakdowns, and which afford you complete peace of mind.
As well as being Land Rover specialists and Range Rover specialists, we also provide car servicing for other marques including all BMW and Jaguar models. We use specialist equipment for diagnostics, servicing and repairs.
Common issues behind breakdowns include:
Flat or Faulty Battery
Problems with the battery are one of the main causes of vehicle breakdowns in the Erith area. These are often caused by poor connections or driving short journeys. If you don’t make longer journeys, your car battery won’t have a chance to charge fully. If a car struggles to turn over, takes longer to start or the battery warning light comes on, you likely have a flat or worn-out battery.
We check the battery’s condition during car servicing and MOT inspections.
Modern vehicles have a range of computer systems and electrical subsystem circuits. Blown bulbs and fuses, as well as faulty wiring, can cause issues. When you travel to our trusted independent garage from Erith for servicing, we use dealership-standard diagnostic tooling to identify any problems. We do this by plugging our equipment into the vehicle’s onboard computer.
We carry out car servicing and repairs to ensure your car runs as it should. Use us as independent Land Rover specialists or Range Rover specialists, and we will undertake auto-electrical repairs to the manufacturer’s specification.
If you have a manual car, the clutch cable experiences a sizeable amount of stress. If you notice a change in the way the clutch feels, or if characteristics in how you change gear feel different, come in to see us as soon as possible. We undertake manual as well as automatic gearbox repairs using quality new or reconditioned parts which have 12-month/12,000-mile warranties.
To minimise the risk of damage to your transmission system, we recommend a periodic mega flush to exchange fluids and to keep them in good condition.
This is a popular service with Erith motorists and those across the region.
Starter motors are robust but, like all working parts and components, they fail eventually. Generally, you won’t notice any faults until a vehicle doesn’t start. Regular car servicing is the best way to maintain the starter motor and avoid ongoing problems. No matter which vehicle you drive, we service, diagnose, repair and can provide a mega flush to replace automatic transmission fluids.
Because our trusted independent garage is home to a skilled team of Land Rover specialists and Range Rover specialists, we can offer services specific to these high-end vehicles and work tirelessly to bring you the best results. From servicing and diagnostics to automatic gearbox repairs, our team can deliver everything Erith motorists need to avoid breakdowns and repair costs.
Dartford Transmissions and Autocare Ltd looks forward to helping you.
