Could anyone recommend a good mechanic/garage in the area? My teenage Nissan Micra is accumulating annoying problems, that need sorting. I live on the New Kent road, E&C end, somewhere nearby would be great. Preferably a garage that isn't going to bullshit me, charge me mad amounts and exploit the fact that, what I know about cars could be written on a postage stamp!!
Many thanks.

There are a few earlier threads about garages with some recommendations:

RW Autos on Morocco Street, and Millennium garage on Great Suffolk Street have both been recommended.

I think there are some more threads as well.

Thanks ADT, took the car down to RW Motors on Monday, they were really helpful and friendly. Didn't talk to me like I was stupid and didn't overcharge me. Was dead impressed and will be taking the car there again. Fully recommend them to anyone.

Yep - RW Motors are good. I've had my Micra serviced there for a couple of years and now get my new Golf serviced there too. They do a good job for and prices are fine. Thumbs up from me.

From me too. Apart from the fact they're in the congestion zone and I'm not so it costs 8 each day my car's there, I think they're great.
