Recommend an independent garage [Manchester]

Post by Spurious » 12 May 2018, 12:26

Hey all,

Any decent Citroen independents in Manchester? Paris Autos in stockport is no more sadly.

I'm looking for someone around Bury/Oldham or North Manchester preferably.

Thanks all

Savoy Citroen isn't far from you in Hapton, Lancs. Just off the dual carriagaway between Haslingden and the M65. About 10 miles from the big Asda in Bury

Might just suit. I'll give them a ring next week. Unless there's something closer in Greater Manchester.

Edit:
eeek. it's a two hour trip back on public transport :-D :-D

Tell Malc Mike P sent you. He'll sort you a loan car while yours is being worked on so no need for pubic transport.

+1 for Malcolm at Savoy. He did my X7's autobox fluid change for me last year, lent me a car to pop up to the local pub in for some lunch while he did it. Really nice bloke!

Well this is alarming as they were my first point of call if i couldn't fix something on my car, i'll be keeping an eye on this thread for recommendations too although the one in Hapton is is a little too far me at an hours drive away.

One of the chaps that was in Paris Autos ended up in Mercian Motors, still in Stockport. He fixed the issue and it was a bit closer than heading towards Hapton.

Was going to head for Savoy motors except they were really busy and couldn't squeeze me in at short notice.
