Despite Jeans enforced absence,Nick still managed to carry out my scheduled service with the usual calm efficiency that has become their byword.
Full marks and thanks.
I thought it about time I left a public message here to tell all of my pleasurable dealings with Nick and Jean. They have attended to the works carried out on my MGZTT260/ (400) with the utmost attention to every single detail, sometimes over and above the remit of the works required, I had so much confidence in there workmanship I entrusted the fitting of my Kenne and Bell S/C to them, an immaculate piece of work, and considered so by others who have had there's fitted else where. I use my car everyday up and down motorways and KNOW that my car is in tip top form, something sadly other garages have not left me with. In essence probably the best garage I have come across. I know my car is in the best hands with them. Martin (a Very happy motorist)
Nick & Jean thank you very much for the work you did yesterday on our 75 tourer. You quickly diagnosed the fault as the cam sensor & went on to find the maf sensor reading was out & came to the rescue with both items from stock. I have always wondered why this cars performance has always felt lacking compared to our 75 saloon, but not any more. It drove with much more determination on the way home just like our saloon. Thanks once again for the hospitality & banter its always great to talk to you both. THANKS
Nick looks after my ZT190 and my 260; the level of service and the attention to detail is second to none. Would never dream of taking my prize MGs anywhere else now they have had Nick's care lavished on them. Thanks for always doing great work. :-)
Hi Nick and Jean,
Once again indebted to you for quickly obtaining and fitting a new alternator,and sorting out a couple of small items,with your usual calmness and efficiency.Many thanks.
Thanks Nick and Jean, I wish I had discovered Austin Garages sooner, why isn't every business like this ! There's expertise, customer service, and good humour here unmatched in my experience. What Nick doesn't know about the 75/ZT isn't worth knowing, and on my first visit his keen eye spotted some rather dodgy previous work on my ZT CDTI. Now, after a full service and some very thorough rectification work the car drives like new. I look forward to my next visit later in the month, to replace the faulty thermostat, knowing that my car is in good hands, and the that kettle will be on !
keep up the good work !
I left my Rover 75 with Nick and Jean while I was away, Nick was really helpful as while undertaking the listed jobs he found other problems on the vehicle. Nick called me to check I wanted the work carrying out before preceding... the car is now a dream to drive again, many thanks to you both, Rob. MG57!
I have just sent an email but clicked to soon.!! Sorry about that!! Thanks Nick and Jean for a truly great experience. Ian Watson
Took my MGF for its annual service last week. It had the big service last year (cambelts/waterpump et), so only needed the smaller service this time. Nick was his usual enthusiastic and informative self, and after a couple of small upgrades to the interior lighting and the service complete, it sailed through its MOT the following day. It is always an absolute pleasure going to see Nick and Jean, and although i live some distance away, would only ever trust Nick to work on the car.
Many thanks, and look forward to seeing you again in 2012.
Many thanks for the excellent Service on my MGZR 160. Your enthusiasm and ability to resolve long-standing issues other Garages have failed to do is a tribute to your skills!. Best wishes to you both for all the banter and hospitality. Recommended to MG Rover owners everywhere, well worth the journey!
Exceptional service yet again! (front discs and pads on my Freelander). See you again shortly for the main service and Nicks update on the cruise control.
Thanks to both of you for the excellant service,hospitality and advice you gave us for our V8.Nicks knowledge on these cars is absolutely first class.I will certainly be coming back to you for more work to be done in the future.Thanks again.
After breaking down on holiday in our 75 tourer and having to be towed home with caravan, the car was investigated by several "experts" who eventually pinpointed the immobilisation ECU. Then a stroke of luck, I found Austin Garages on tinternet. I phoned Nick and explained our predicament, 5 mins. later I was feeling much more positive after he had described how the ECU was probably water damaged by a leaking sun roof drain. After delivering the ECU to Nick he was able to repair it at nominal cost. Upon refitting, car started again at last, but a mislock situation had developed. Nick came to the rescue again talking me through a minor wiring mod. now all is well. A very big THANKYOU then to Nick and Jean, your Austin Garages phone number will always travel with us from now on!
Hi Nick and Jean

Just wanted to say a big thank you for your recent help and advice and also the great job you did servicing my MGTF. It runs like a dream now you have tuned everything up. The new speakers also sound great. Like your other customers say, it makes a difference to find a garage where the people looking after your pride and joy have the same passion and actually know what they are talking about. You should both be very proud - great customer service and value for money. Will be back again and will certainly recommend you to other MG owners.
In my 23 years of motoring I have never encountered a Garage like this, Austin Garages actually CARE about MG/ROVER cars, and more importantly their owners! They have true passion, commitment, and dedication to ensure that every last little detail of a repair is carried out to exceed original MG/ROVER standards and specifications, taking time to explain everything that has been done to your vehicle so you have total confidence it has been repaired to the highest imaginable standard! I have had the head gasket and several other issues with my MGTF repaired absolutely flawlessly, and this is the sole occasion that I have actually been happy to part with my money to have my car repaired!! Thank you so much Nick, and I will trust my car to no one else but you in the future!!! Simon Horsley
Another special effort by Nick and Jean to fit my service in. Very thorough inspection, and any concerns with my ZT-T flagged. A very happy customer. Thanks guys.
Nick you are brilliant , thank you for your help with finding the radio code for my mg
Excellent service great hospitality would strongly recommend, I have visited four times travelling 180 miles from Newcastle upon Tyne it's worth the effort for the service and professionalism shown by Nick and Jean. I have had many modifications carried out to my Rover 75 Diesel Connoisseur Se, all have been undertaken to a very high standard, I look forward to my fifth visit,. Many thanks Nick and Jean.
Yet again first class service, diagnostics and help and support. Nick and Jean you are simply the best for my baby! My MG ZTT is behaving herself, and thank you for sorting her out while I waited. Still trying to work out kPa's though......
Thanks again for the work you did today.The car felt a lot taughter on the way home, the steering has lost that slightly vague feeling it had & rides the bumps without any clunking, well done. Although the bill came to a fair amount just before our holiday I feel you give excellent value for money & a fantastic level of service & attention to detail that I would encourage anyone to try. Thanks
Many thanks for my head gasket service. More importantly l can now wind my drivers window down ! Highly recommended..excellent service
Simply the best service by far! You have gained another regular customer!

thank you
Thanks to Austin Garages our two Rovers are in the best possible hands for care and maintenance,its always a pleasure to visit knowing the level of expertise and hospitality always on offer.

Not been to the garage in question but work for an ex mg rover garage and with many of the original techs now left here for pastures new I feel it might well be worth the trip to see you guys with my ZT. Great to see such passion for the MG Rover marque and a good website too. Oozes love of the Longbridge products. Problem is you might have to actually kick me out the door come the end of the day.
Hope to see you in the not too distant future.
Fully endorse the comments listed here. Used Austin Garages a number of times now. Quite simply the best garage I've come across.
Third visit this year for me, this time in my F for a full service and cambelt change. Fantastic service as usual, and great hospitality. Once you have taken your car to Nick and Jean, you will never entrust your car to anyone else.Thoroughly recommended. Thank You.
Today has been the fourth time I have been to austin garages & what a pleasure it is. Nick & jean you are great.
Yet again fantastic service from you both, so warm & welcome. I wish you well on your Home to Rome trip. Almost cannot wait to be back (slipping clutch). So happy I found people that care as much as me about my car.
Thanks once again & see you soon.
Really glad i found you!! no one could resolve my non starting problem on my tf for months. you told us over the phone the problem and the solution to it. Fantastic!! You also go over and above the required service, thanks ever so much and see you soon!
Professional Helpful Keen Friendly Efficient Knowledgeable,makes spending money a pleasure !
Takes the worry out of driving a 25 year old Landrover and puts the fun into driving a 6 year old MG.

Now were Motoring !
My son had a head gasket job done elsewher on his Rover 75 but it still ran rough, even after they had looked at it agin. Nic diagnosed the problem over the phone before we arrived, the belt was a tooth out! The journey home was a delight, silky smooth and bags of power.He even added day time running lights while the car was on diagnostic.
Second time we have been, 1st time he installed a full leather trim we provided and he even made up a loom to power the seats. Theres not much Nic doesn't know about Rovers and it is a pleasure to deal with him. All our cars will go to him from now on. Thanks again from Steve and Chris
Great service, took on two extra jobs that I was not booked in for without hesitation. Aircon is bloody freezing now,great job. Thanks once again.
6 year service carried out on my Connie at 33400 miles (must get out more)
Wonderful service as always.
Enjoy your holiday and I will contact you re the thermostat & fan motor.
The only garage that Ihave been to, were my car is looked after in the way I would like.Thanks to Nick and Jean I have a really well sorted TF wonderful personal service.MG TF 135
My 2nd visit to Austin Garages and once again great and personal customer service from Nick; and an 'education' to see him perform 'keyhole' surgery to replace the thermostat on my MG ZT-T (V6 190)!
Concur with the comments on this web site. Nice to find a business that lives up to it's promises. Found Austin Garages to be fair, efficient and good value. Has my recommendation and I will use them again.
Just a short note of thanks for sorting my TF's oil leak out today. Excellent service and hospitality. Can't recommend these guys enough !!
This is the second comment I've left on Austin Garages site. I called in today for an emergency repair and Nick took about five nano seconds to find/fix the fault. As I said before in previous comments the service and subject matter knowledge of these guys is second to none! In today's world it's refreshing to get great customer service.
For anyone looking for the ultimate experience in customer care and Nick's fountain of knowledge then look no further.
Thank you both for looking after "my girl", oh and me, of course!
Hope your cold gets better soon Jean.

Take care and thanks so much.
Great Hospitality from Nick and Jean today. This is the first time that i have been to Nick for any work on my 260, and without doubt, its the best attention and service i have ever experienced at any garage for many years.A real pleasure to do business with, and Nick was more than happy to talk me through all that he was doing.
After leaving home at 5-45am this morning to cover the 130 miles, I can honestly say it was well worth the trip and will certainly be returning for all future work on the car as well as my MGF. Great service, great value and a must if you own a Rover/MG.
Arrh Doctor, another near rescue, thanks for sorting out the oil bursting V6 on my ZT-T and the near completion of fitting the Zenons (you should not work so late). The correct ones are on their way.It is well worth the round trip from Brackley everytime. I know the ZR will be sweet on it's return,

Cheers youth

I am over the moon with the work/ upgrades you did for me on monday on our rover 75. For the first time ever I felt comfortable letting someone else other than myself work on our car. I cannot believe there is someone out there as passionate about rovers as me.Thank you both so much for the warm welcome. I will return soon for rear springs.
highly reccomend Nicks expert eye, i will never bring my MGF to anywhere but here. Any other amature garage seems to get confused with my car and creates problems. Flawless results from this garage.
Just a quick note to say thanks again for a first-rate service, excellent attention to detail, very knowledgeable and entertaining chat and nice cup of coffee! Top rate service, highly recommended!
Thanks for great hospitality, service and a superb job done fixing my gear selection problem. The cost effective solution of fixing the master cylinder was so much more palatable than the new clutch and slave cylinder that the MG/Rover dealer suggested!

Even though its a bit of a trek from Milton Keynes I'll certainly be back in the future.
Just a quick note to thank you both, again, for the prompt attention to my clutch problem and for putting up with my emails during your Christmas break.
Always a pleasure to see you both and look forward to seeing you again in February for the dreaded MOT etc.
Thanks so much for sorting out my zs what a great place and first class service many thanks
Can't really add anymore than what has already been said. Nick worked marvels with my ZT 260 and have my 75 Diesel booked in next. Can't forget about Jean either who is very helpfull and always a pleasure to talk to and organise with whats to be done.
Thanks Nick & Jean!!
Although I have known Nick through car clubs for longer than I care to remember that does not stop me typing a heartfelt thank you for the major service and upgrade he carried out this month on my much loved 75 Contemporary SE CDTi Tourer - I now have a car that drives superbly again and has had minor faults ironed out with enthusiasm and efficiency. Nick has also struggled with a premium bumper and front end (fruits of eBay!) and made my car look as good as it drives. As ever well worth the journey for the quality and care - at Austin Garages Rovers and MGs find a technician who understands them and (dare I type it) loves them! Thanks again!
