Job completed: Engine diagnostic test and fix
“Really quick service”

“I had two warning lights on my dashboard which would not auto correct once I responded to the problem. Charlton Car Care plugged my car it into a computer and it corrected the problem within about 5 minutes. Really quick service, which was reflected in the cost. Very happy all round with the experience and I will be recommending the garage to people I know.”
