Lee Garage, review

Hi All !

Seeing that its the season of reviewing the local Garage's I thought I'd post my experience with Lee Garage,

Rang last Monday to enquire when they would be able to fit timing belt, idlers, tensioners etc and spoke with Service Manager who told me to bring it in on Tuesday morning.

I actually dropped it in on Monday afternoon as I had a lift sorted for then and could not make Tuesday morning.

They rang me just after lunch to say its ready on Tuesday and they had put in a new aux belt also as the old one was worn.
Spoke with Paul there, he is the Alfa Mechanic they have and from speaking with him it was obvious he has the Alfa passion and does his job properly, i.e. used proper cam locks, tdc tool etc.

Car ran much quieter until it threw up a code P0150 (2 days later) which was solved by putting in a new lambda sensor. I knew something had to give with a new belt on as I had my suspicion that the timing had been slightly out before the change.

Thumbs up so for Lee Garage and especially their mechanic, Paul, there, top bloke and really knows his stuff about Alfa's

Re: Lee Garage, review

Can wholeheartedly recommend this place, crashed and wrote of my car on Jan 4th, they brought it in, handled evrrything. I ordered a new machine from them that same week, but with delays in Italy car did not arrive until end of April. They gave me a courtesy car for that whole lenght of time and did not charge for it. Top class boys. Paul there is Alfa mad, and Liam the salesman, great guy, couldn't do enough for me.

Re: Lee Garage, review

Heard Lee garage were moving out to Little Island. Is this true? Or is that just the service department?

Need to get my aircon hose replaced as soon as i get home from Belgium and would rather get it done closer to home than Bandon.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did all that set you back. I'm curious to know how much the lambda sensor cost as mine needs to be done.

Timing belt and tensioners etc came to €620, Lamdba was €210 including labour to diagnose fault.
