an absolutely cracking garage for all repairs.
Click to read review
visited this garage today following an alternator failure. i first visited this garage earlier in the year when i had a clutch failure,( please see my revue earlier in the year) this time the service once again was absolutely second to none. i had an alternator failure on my zafira 4 years ago when unfortunately i used a different garage because i did not know of the vauxhall repair centre on manors industrial estate. the previous garage charged me more for a none descript alternator. this time a genuine part was fitted in record time. the customer care excellent. knowing how i have been dealt with by this garage i will not go any where else for my work. thanks to everyone involved . absolutely spot on.and i do not normaly give praise lightly

visited this garage at the beginning of march with a very poorly clutch.the price sounded expensive ,but when i shopped around it was very reasonable ,mainly because they use genuine parts not reconditioned like some of the big clutch centers. while my car was there i knew that it needed new discs and brake pads and so i enquired about a total price about all the work. in a nutshell John did me a deal, i was very pleased especially with the end result . and so this week i returned with my wifes car expecting a few problems but no it sailed through £35 for an MOT bargain!!!! will i go back take a guess its nice to know you are not being fleeced and the young man that served us was extremely polite and jolly.

Left my MOT to last minute as always. No problem booked me straight in unfortunately my car failed on a few items. Repairs sorted straight away. Got phone calls explaining what my car had failed on and cost of repairs. My car was kept safe and locked away and was offered a courtesy car. I didn't have to chase the team once. They called me to keep me updated all the way through the repairs. Can not recommend this garage and the team enough.

I have used this garage for years for various vehicles I've had. Despite being always busy, Jon and the excellent lads there would always fit me in around whatever they were doing and get me back on the road again. Vital for myself as my car was my business. Nothing was too much trouble for them no matter how minor.
Always free loan cars available when required, keeps you updated on the progress of the job, never does anything not previously agreed with you before phoning you and discussing it first and getting your permission. Just good honest advice.
Prices I found very competitive, very decent, excellent value.
In summary - excellent and highly recommended.

I have used the Vauxhall Repair Centre Ilkeston now for the past 5 years. During which time my cars have been serviced/MOT/ and repaired various items on cars from 1 to 15 years old. One item which makes the Vauxhall Repair Centre Ilkeston standout from other garages is their attention to detail. When your car has a service at even 1 year old the wheels shall be removed and brakes checked. Quite a few main dealer and independent garages may not even remove the wheels during a service. This results in you not being able to remove a wheel when a puncture occurs! If any work beyond what is expected is found the mechanic working on your vehicle shall call you and explain the work required before continuing to seek permission to continue work on your vehicle.

The availability of a courtesy cars is never a problem with around 20 cars available to customers to keep mobile whilst their vehicles has work carried out. The courtesy cars may not be up to main dealer standards but it maintains the mobility of the customer. Courtesy cars range from small Corsa's to larger Zafira's. Manual and automatic gearbox also available.

Overall the Vauxhall Repair Centre Ilkeston is a traditional customer oriented garage delivering a professional highly competitive value for money service.

Give them a try once and you'll not use another independent garage again!

I bought my car here for repair after my usual garage couldn't fix the fault. My 2nd choice garage were chairing horrendous money for the repair. I bought it here and received a very good quote, had the work carried out quickly and efficiently and a courtesy car while the repair was carried out.
Needless to say that my first and second choice garages are surplus to requirement - I'll be using the vauxhall repair centre from now on

Response to slanderous comment previous
Click to read review
We do not do favours for traders. Why fail the car then pass it afterwards that is simply ridiculous.
If I were caught doing things like this I would lose my mot licence.
Instead of hiding behind slanderous comments with no name etc why not ring me directly to discuss matters.
Factually incorrect rubbish and something that our customers who know me and how we operate will know this is absolute rubbish

Took my ageing Vectra C estate to VRC - to have the the cambelt, waterpump and glowplugs replaced as well as a leaking injector reseated and resealed - found staff to be friendly , efficient and knowledgeable. Took car in first thing in the morning and was given a loan car to use while mine was being sorted. Received a phone call mid afternoon to say the work was completed. The price was, as quoted originally and very good compared to other quotes I had received - very satisfied - will recommend to others and not hesitate to have any future repairs or servicing carried out there. Thank you

The best garage i have ever used!!
Click to read review
The pride of joy which is the Twin Top Astra started Bonging.. then the roof closed and the cycle would not complete and boot would not open.. after a pain staking drive of mile after mile BONGING.. the boot had opened but the roof would not open again. Looking on the net we found Vauxhall repair ctr. We dropped the car off with a hire car available ( most helpful) dealing with Jon and Simon the friendly service was not like any other garage.
After two days we had the car returned and working fine but the same problem had arisen. Phoning the garage we took the car back ( another hire car available ) they got working on the car straight away ... wiring loom is the issue, they repaired the damage and charged us very little... the best and the most friendly honest garage ever used....HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!

having been charged over £400 to try and fix the electric roof on my twin top astra and the main dealer getting nowhere I decided to take my car out of the dealer and find a roof specialist.
I couldn't find anybody who would even look at the roof on my car and all I kept getting told was ..its a main dealer job only even though they had spent 8 hours on it and got nowhere.
It wasn't until a workmate told me to try the Vauxhall repair centre in Ilkeston I thought I was stuck with a convertible that didn't work.
I rang these guys and immediately felt at ease and they sounded like they knew more than the main dealer!
I took my car in and the following day got a call to say they knew what the problem was and it would cost £235 to fix (some sort of motor thing was needed)
Well true to their word I collected my car and am now enjoying the sunshine with the top down.
I wont be going anywhere else in future for any car work,these guys are the real deal and also kept me mobile with a loan car while they had mine.
anybody needing any repairs/servicing give these guys a call you will not be disappointed.

Took my Vauxhall astra in to this garage after being recommended by a friend to use them.
I can honestly say it has been the best experience of a garage I have had in over 20 years of driving.
my car needed a few items when it was serviced and the mechanic who was working on it actually showed me the problems with the car on the ramp!!
the price I paid was fantastic as well, (I did a bit of research after and it was by far the cheapest price of them all)
I have never bothered to review a garage before or recommended a garage to other people but lets just say all of my friends and family have heard about this garage and will be trying it out.
absolutely 5 star service from really nice friendly guys that make you feel comfortable and at ease.
I would recommend anybody reading this to use this garage.

I have been using this garage for sometime. I can recommend them with out hesitation. Even if you do not own a Vauxhall. The new facilities are top notch & prices more than fair. If you want a garage you can trust look no further. Oh & by the way the free loan car is FREE ! no nasty sting for money to insure it for a day unlike any other garage I USED to use.

New Location - Same Fantastic Service

For those who don't know, the Vauxhall Repair Centre - Ilketson has moved to a new premises with top of the range facilities. Customers can expect the same fantastic service and value along with a warm, comfortable reception and waiting room, kids play area and FREE customer WiFi internet access.

I've been taking my car to them for the last few years and cannot speak highly enough of them.

Jon and the boys are friendly, polite and incredibly helpful. The new premises is fantastic and its great to see that they have a waiting room to match the service they provide.

All in all, a pleasure to deal with and I would strongly recommend them in the future.

I have a one year old Vauxhall which i took to Evans Halshaw to have the ABS light fixed. I was told that my vehicle had been in an accident (which could have been caused by a speed bump or pot hole), and would not be fixed under Warranty. Total cost of repair - £897 - to include new abs hub, front arm, drive shaft leak, abs wiring and tracking.
i looked for a local Vauxhall repair centre who would use genuine vauxhall parts and not invalidate my warranty (which really isnt worth the paper its written on), and found the Vauxhall Repair Centre at Ilkeston. The service was excellent, nice polite mechanics, who showed me exactly what was wrong with my car, and fixed the real problems - abs wiring, new front arm and tracking - costing me a total of £153.
I would definitely use this garage again, and would recommend it to anyone else with a Vauxhall - or any other make of car for that matter. Anyone who uses a Main Dealer should definitely get a 2nd opinion.
