I was quoted absolutely ludicrous prices from another garage for a dpf clean and was told if it was that, it’s always something more pricey to fix. Aaron’s autos did tell me that but the dpf clean was a fifth of the price than what the other garage quoted, and the sensor that also need to be replaced the other garage also told me that would be a lot more expensive than Aaron’s autos charged. Honest reliable and quıck. Very much appreciated.”
