    Company: Smiths Service Garrage, Breightmet Street, Bolton, BL2 1BR. 01204 392204

    Services: MOT, repairs, serviceing, tyres air con refils and repairs. They don't personally do electrics but work with another local place (cheaper to go via smiths btw)

    Comments: I have used them for years, my vectra was serviced from 6 months old to when I sold it a week ago along with MOT and regular fault finding missions. Only ever had one problem which was when they replaced 2 tyres at an MOT and caught the lip of one of the wheels only slightly but they had it refurbished for me. Really good for short notice stuff, last week my sister called monday morning and her car was in for its MOT at about 3pm same day. They used to do all the mechanic work for warrenders the subaru and EVO experts so well versed in those cars and did all the MOT work for Williams before they got their own MOT bay.




    Area: Bolton

    Company: Thistlethwaites Tyres, Burns Street. Bolton, Lancashire,BL3 6DA. 01204 524392

    Services: Tyres, MOT, serviceing and Exhausts.

    Comments: I have only ever used them for tyres and they did the alignment for my Dad's after some pothole damage. Prices are reasonlable and they will price match but the quality of their tyre work is excelent and they perform vulcanised repairs repairing the shoulder punctures that other places can't. repairs are not the cheapest but I know my wheels won't come out marked and they don't go checking the rest of the car to sell you an exhaust or other stuff you don't need. They offer while you wait repairs and tyre replacement and even stock the tyres for the vectra which I beleive are only used on the vectra SRi wheels (strange size) i even had them price match black circles.

    Used SI at this garage numerous times, not only is he a really reliable guy, he'll always let you provide your own parts if you want. He will fault find, and then call you before doing anything. He's worked on an exhaust for me before, and saved me £300 by cutting a re-welding an exhaust.
