Default Claytons of Mansfield

The guys from Claytons came from what used to be Speeds of Mansfield, I have not had the car serviced by them yet (only ordered parts up to date) but I had no problems with the work carried out by Speeds, we always used Speeds and received a professional service every time, then Stratstone took over and that was a completely different story.

I recommend giving David Pengelly a call on 0115 9781117 or looking at www.dpavolvo.co.uk. Stratstone quoted me 812 for a 7 year/84K service with cam belt/tension pully etc. David explained this was unnecessary until around 9 years (he showed me the service schedule), as my mileage is just 66.5K on a 02 plate S60. He charged just 177 for a full service, including oil change etc.

He explained that rather than blindly following the Volvo schedule, he checks every part every year. He replaces anything that needs replacing, but leaves alone anything that does not. This is especially good when you consider Stratstone's huge mark ups.

I get the impression that he could easily survive on repeat business. Good service at a fraction of the cost of Stratstone.

Highly recommended.

Steve

Try Dimitris bodyshop in Netherfield. Ive had a couple of cars in his place. He did a good job at a reasonable price on both occassions. Hes a one man operation.

On the same point anyone got any recommendations on paint repair in the Notts area? My beloved C70 is now looking the worse for wear having left it at the airport for a few days this week

I've been using Dave Pengelly for years. Honest and effective.
