Awesome service right from the word go. I walked in told them my issue was given a quote and booked it in for the next day. Great communication and very friendly service. The bill ended up being cheaper than the quote! Couldn't believe that, this day and age you expect to get ripped every chance but not here, honest and good old fashioned no BS service, couldn't recommend these guys and gals more! If I could give 10 stars I would!

The team at Lilley Automotive were fantastic to deal with and more importantly they correctly diagnosed and fixed the issues I was having with my car. I was really happy about this because I'd previously taken my car elsewhere only to have the problems persist. The moment I received my car back from Lilley Automotive it was like I was driving a brand new vehicle again and I haven't had any problems since. If you want the job done right first time go to Lilley Automotive. I know that's where I'll be going from now on.

Great family business who look after their customers. They have bent over backwards on many occasions over the years to keep our business vehicle on the road (and our other vehicles too!). Can't recommend highly enough 🙂
