    Took my car in to ask advice regarding the awd system. Did a complete health check and road test and it was pointed out the rear brakes were only just working which I was aware of. Took it back for a rear brake replacement and full service, car runs beautifully now and is a pleasure to drive so will be going to Cavendish from now on.

    Mark at Cavendish went above and beyond repairing our car. Faced with innumerable faults due to a broken EGR breather, he and the team worked through them all. The final bill was pretty big, but it would have been a lot bigger if they'd just replaced everything rather than cleaning it. Here's a picture of what came out of the manifold. The DPF was worse apparently.

    Marc and the lads are extremely helpful, went in with an issue with my car, no hesitation from the lads and instead of having it booked in they worked on it straight away. First class service and will continue to take both mine and my partners car here for any work that needs carried out. Highly recommended

    My VW Touareg has been to Cavendish Motor Company twice and both times Marc and his team have provided me with first class service.
    They have gone above and beyond my expectations and put in the extra effort to ensure that my car was returned in first class condition.
    I would definitely recommend this company for all your maintenance work and MOTs.
    I will certainly be taking... Read More

    Marc & his team as always do great job & always look after the car .
    Wouldn't dream of going anywhere else , we had problems which were caused by us using backstreet garage, Marc came to rescue & since then we have let Cavendish do the job . They always let you know what's needed , what's going to be required next time & keep in touch with you whilst working on car

    Called on off chance to see if they could remove a dog seatbelt which had become stuck and would make vehicle fail MOT due in 7 days. Despite not being a customer, they spent time trying different things and eventually resolved the problem. Seven days later my car was in Stratstone BMW for MOT and when car collected discovered they had been unable to do MOT due to technical problems. With... Read More

    Brilliant service from Marc and his team. Potentially saved me hundreds of pounds by going above and beyond investigating and fixing an issue I had with my gearbox. He took the time to explain the issue and showed me exactly what had happened. Can't recommend them enough.

    Went over and above with customer service. I could not pick my car up before closing so Mark came in next day especially to let me pick it up. Thank you. Serviced car and changed timing belt. Good job done. Will definitely use Cavendish again in the future and recommend to everyone.

    26th May 2022

    Contaced Marc by E mail asking about a wheel alignement check. Replied very quickly. Having just fitted new front suspension bits it was important to have the Tracking checked. I asked the price and if their equipment was avaiable to fit a check in. There was an afternoon vacant slot, turned up sharp, booked in, left the car and had a walk up to the high street a few mins away.When we returned... Read More
