Dave: Big thankyou to Car Care of Kensington
One of my main concerns for this trip was the reliability of the car. I didn’t have too much confidence in the Subaru dealer I bought the car from, but have used Car Care of Kensington (in Ladbroke Grove) several times in the past and had always been happy with their service.
I dropped in a couple of weeks ago to have a chat about getting the car serviced. I spoke to Ray, who immediately understood what I was after in terms of getting the car prepared and said to leave it with him.
Ray called two days later to say that the car was ready to pick up, and to say that they’ve been thorough would be an enormous understatement! The car has had absolutely every single consumable replaced – brake pads, discs and shoes. New oil in the gearbox, engine and front and rear diffs. All suspension components checked and tightened as well as a wheel balance and alignment, amongst numerous other things. After checking with me, Ray also offered his advice on spares to take, so he also ordered some spare belts, brake pads etc for us to take with us.
On top of doing an absolutely spot on job, Ray also offered to do the work free of charge since we are doing the trip in aid of charity. (We just have to pay for parts). So with their fantastic service, I really couldn’t be happier. I’m now confident that the car is properly prepared for the trip and it’s definitely one less thing to worry about!
A massive thank you to Ray and the team from Car Care of Kensington!
