Can anyone recommend a local garage which would be able to do some work on a Toyota? We normally go to the Toyota dealer at Seven Sisters. However, although I don't mind paying over the odds for a service to get the book stamped by Toyota, our car now could do with new brake discs and pads all round, which I don't fancy paying Toyota main dealer prices for.

Please let me know if you find anywhere-ours goes to the main toyota place at isleworth which is not very convienient and the cost is, as you say a rip off.

Yes PLEASE someone tell me too...I go all the way to Hendon with my car it's bloody miles away - even if I can get the train from E&C, which makes the car-less part of thebusiness easier. But it's totally ridiculous to go twenty miles for my car needs.

A friend of mine has a Toyota Yaris and brought hers for a service somewhere over Battersea. I can find out address if people think this will suit.

Heavens yes, Battersea is infinitely closer than Hendon!

The number for the garage (toyota service) is 020 7498 3844. It is near Battersea Dogs Home, Havelock Terrace. My friend paid 194 for a "2 year service". I have no idea if this is the going rate.

Thanks a lot for that.

The last car I had was a Toyota and I used to take it to Hendon but they could never fix the recuring problem I was having - went to the Havelock one and they fixed it immediately. They specialise in Lexus but were great in the 18 months I used them

A quick update for those interested.

As anticipated Toyota told us to replace the discs/pads, and based on recommendations elsewhere in the SE1 forum I went to RW Autos on Morocco Street to have the work done. They charged under half what Toyota had quoted, and were most efficient & helpful - we'll certainly go back there if we need more work doing.
