The Benefits of Our DSG Gearbox Repairs


DSG Gearbox Diagnostics

Some car owners shy away from having their vehicle’s Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) serviced or repair as it tends to be costly. But at The Car Clinic, we developed our services to be easy, convenient, and cost-effective for you.

Our highly trained expert mechanics can take on any DSG faults, whether it’s VW, Skoda, Audi, SEAT, and more. There’s no damage that we can’t fix. Add to that our advanced diagnostic equipment so we can ensure that no underlying issues are left unfixed.

The best thing about it?

I have used the Car Clinic 3 times now – once to get my battery replaced, once for a service and radiator maintenance and again for a timing belt replacement, and each time I’ve experienced really friendly customer service. The owner and mechanics take time to chat and explain things, which I really appreciated. Now my car is good as new!

Excellent service….again. This is the second time I have used the Car Clinic and each time has been spot on. I took my VW e-golf in for a service and took the opportunity to get the wheels refurbished. When I went to pick it up Shaun (owner) and I agreed one or two of the wheels were not quite perfect. Without question, Shaun offered to get them all redone…….just picked it up and they are like new. Excellent customer service, thank you

A great experience all round. I phoned on the Monday, was booked in for Tuesday and had a full service, battery replacement, brake discs and pads replaced. The car was back with me for Thursday mid-day. The staff at The Car Clinic explained everything in detail and were excellent from start to finish.

Superb service for the car clinic guys, very honest and helpful mechanics. I have used them several times and its refreshing to actually encounter mechanics that upfront with you and don’t try to sell you something you don’t need. I would recommend their services to anyone who is looking a top notch garage to service and fix their motor.
