    • Martin is friendly, honest and helpful.
      Changed the fuel pump on our Bongo, excellent service and went above and beyond to get our Bongo starting properly.
      We travelled over 85 miles to use him and wont be using anyone else. DRA come highly recommended.

    • I've been going to D.R.A for a while and when I had my first car a Peugeot 206, they were so friendly and honest which was important to me as I had no clue about cars. Therefore, I always went to them for anything because I knew they wouldn't try to take advantage of my inexperience. They are efficient, experienced, reliable and honest mechanics. I recommend to anyone especially anyone who have trust issues with mechanics 😊

    • A really great services and have recommended DRA to all my friends in and around the Croydon area.

    • Great guys sorted my Ford Mondeo other garages wouldn't touch (injectors). Highly recommended

    • I have been using Martin at DRA for years. I used to have Ford and Mazda Bongos but he now services and works on my Mercedes. Very knowledgeable on all makes of cars. An excellent service.

    • A proper garage. I took my range rover to 4 different high street garages and none of them knew what was wrong with it bur Martin at DRA fixed it in a hour.

    • Swift service and reliable! Wouldn't take my car anywhere else! Great knowledge

    • Brilliant work carried out on my Ford Focus ST. Sorted out all of the issues which meant it flew through its MOT with no issues. Replaced a CV gaiter and carried out a full service as well as some other maintenance bits. Amazing knowledge on all brands, let me know some bits which might need to be done soon as maintenance work but not needed yet!
