I cannot recommend A.C.R.E. garage of Carterton enough. From the moment I was recommended to them and then spoke to Ian Granville I have received the most incredibly honest and trusted assistance. Ian has a fabulous way with customers and within 10 minutes of arriving at my home to inspect the air conditioning failure Ian had diagnosed the problem. I was truly amazed with such a speedy solution and the overall price to have my car picked up from my home [FOC], taken to the garage on a saturday morning and returned to my home at 3pm the same day completely fixed. A week or so earlier I had taken the car to the local Mercedes dealer in Kidlington for an air conditioning check, service and refresh as it did not appear to be working properly. It took Mercedes a whole hour to do this and cost me money for what I now know was an incorrect diagnostic check and work. Not only did I pay for this hours check by Mercedes they then recommended further diagnosis and replacement of a compressor & expansion pipe which would of cost in the region of £1,257! My faith in Mercedes engineers knowledge and diagnostic equipment is now lost forever and I will complain about the lack of the technical ability to diagnose and correctly repair a relatively easy and common problem. A.C.R.E. took 10 minutes FOC to diagnose that the Condenser needed to be replaced and the total cost was just a fraction over £300. A.C.R.E. also do tyres and servicing so please do not hesitate to give them a call as I will certainly be recommending them to all my friends and all of you here on John's great web site.
