    About time Paula, repairing cars on a snowy lane between sheep, goats and dogs isn't fun, is it.
    Do you do welding ?

    Probably one of the biggest problems in fixing cars is when you get an itermittent fault its the most difficult thing to fix and can take quite a few attempts to fix its the same old story when the car goes to the garage the car wont play up its only when the car leaves the garage it starts playing up its just one of the scenary that in some cases it just a case of let the fault develop before you can find it

    So long as they do what you pay them to do and do it properly unlike some of the "qualified" mechanics tend to do. Good Luck Paula & Michael. Mik.
    Don`t bother "repping" me it`s turned off.

    I should say so, had my vehicle repaired today, brilliant result, its fantastic now, what a relief to find a garage that does such a thorough repair and at such reasonable rates. Would definitely recommend Viking Motors
    you always know what sort of a day its been when it gets to night

    Its hard to believe but you do get some people that are qualified and have all the papers and are good at the theory side but hands on there rubbish and then you meet the next person who aint got there papers and have worked there way up by being keen and have good attitude and are ten times better than any qualified mechanic

    Its not exactly rocket science these days, modern cars rarely, if ever actually break down. Most work is servicing or replacing worn out components. If they do break down, instead of thirty years experience you just need to plug in the correct software and it tells you whats wrong.

    None of the above applies if (like me) you have an Alfa Romeo. Then the last person in the world you want looking at it is an Alfa qualified technician!
