If your car is under warranty, you do not have to take it back to the main dealer for servicing or repairs (which are not covered by the warranty).

Government legislation passed in 2003 known as "Block Exemption" means that an independent garage can now carry out your servicing/repairs and your warranty is still protected.

Here at AJL Car Care Centre, our expertise in the latest Vehicle Diagnostics Systems is second to none.

We specialize in the systems your manufacturers are using.

The ability to carry out a cost effective accurate diagnosis is paramount and this is one of the many ways in which we excel.

Diagnostics can be a very complicated process but over the years we’ve honed these skills and put procedures into place helping to get to the root of the problem fast saving us time and you money.


We will only use genuine parts of original equipment standard which means all cars are repaired with approved parts. We will never use oil of a lesser quality than semi synthetic.

Research has shown that independent garages servicing costs are generally considerably lower than main dealer.

Servicing can differ from vehicle to vehicle, the cost of which also differs too. 
we can check what type of service your car requires at its specific mileage or age and will quote you accordingly.

We can carry out servicing as per manufacturer's recommendations or you can choose a full or interim service if you prefer - we can advise you of which service we think would be most suited, but the final choice will be yours!

      Air Conditioning Re gas

It is recommended that you should recharge your air conditioning system every 2 years with gas and lubricant, in order to keep it running efficiently. This is not included as part of a routine car service and so it can often be overlooked. If your car is more than 2 years old it is more than likely due a Re-Gas.

Our Re-Gas service ensures that your air conditioning system is working efficiently by testing the gas pressure to see if it has dropped. A drop in gas pressure will result in a loss of cooling efficiency which will make your engine work harder and in turn use more fuel.

Due to it's dehumidifying properties, when operating fully efficiently, your air conditioning system will also de-mist your windscreen more rapidly in cold weather. So, for comfort and safety's sake, book your Air Conditioning Re-Gas now!

Our fully trained technicians will take a temperature reading from your air conditioning system; remove all the old refrigerant gas, oil and dye. They then clean the whole system and remove any moisture within. Once the system has been thoroughly cleansed our technicians will inject new oil, dye and refrigerant gas and take a temperature reading again to ensure that the Re-Gas has made a difference to the cold air temperature
