Dave and team quickly sorted out intake manifold on my Audi A6 at a very reasonable price and in a friendly manner. Much better than main dealer.
Took my Passat in with a tricky electronic issue. The garage tried two solutions quickly, and when they didn’t work, looked at the more expensive one I tad originally feared it might be. However they also discovered a much cheaper workaround option and offered me that too. Saved a few hundred quid for me so very happy. Will go back.
I had my combi transporter serviced here recently. It was done very efficiently and on time and is running very well. Many thanks. Andrew.
Car: Seat Leon Cupra
My Leon needed an MOT and service and, based on advice from friends, I decided to take it to Pony Road Garage. I’m glad I did. Excellent service, very reasonable prices and a high standard of work. I will use Pony Road again and would highly recommend them.
As a bonus the car drives like new!
Car – 2002 Golf Mk4 GTI
I recently had a cam belt and water pump change together with a new thermostat (old one had been stuck open for a few weeks) carried out with these guys. I’ve had no issues with the car since and nor do I expect to. Dave at Pony Road was very clear and concise his pricing and timings, which was cheaper than other mainstream garages in the area for the same work.
Together with that, a courtesy car was also made available on the day (for a small fee) of the service so that it didn’t impact on my day job. But it’s worth speaking to them first to arrange a suitable date beforehand and discuss costs. After which my car was ready on time on the same day, with all of the work completed at no additional costs.
If you wish your car to be serviced by a professional team of mechanics who do a very good job, at a competitive price and stick to the times they originally provided, then I’m very happy to recommend the team at Pony Road.
I will be bringing my Golf MK4 back to them if for any future servicing or mechanical work.
Many thanks guys!
Very happy to return to Dave and the team for service number 3 on my VW Golf Mk6.
This is a great find as it’s a place where you get immediate confidence in the team’s knowledge and skills, together with excellent customer care.
Having used dave and the team for fixing my Volvo well pleased with price now brought a Mercedes took it there needed few things doing wasn’t sure if mercs were there cup of tea to my surprise one of the chaps knew about Mercedes after me car was in there aday all fixed take my hat of to Dave and the team and the price well happy with thanks boys
Excellent garage, work in the same industrial estate & having this garage next to us is a time saver. Gave the keys, repaired the wiring of my LH back lights & fixed it within 2 hours or so. Good efficient of work & very fast in solving problems, highly recommended.
Dave and the team have been looking after my ageing A6 Quattro for a couple of years now. Can’t be faulted for price or service! Always been very pleased with their work.
Always ring me before any work is carried out and if something doesn’t need doing they tell me as opposed to changing parts that don’t need replacing
Highly recommended for all service/MOT or investigation work. It’s great to have somewhere local that keeps me away from main dealers.
Happy New Year to every one at Pony Rd Auto Specialists.
I’ve been taking my car to pony rd for its annual service for the last couple of years.The guys are really friendly and keep you well informed of what they’re doing and what needs to be done. I had a problem with my car late one night, but managed to get it home. The following morning I drove it straight to the pony rd garage and left it on the forecourt. I put the keys and a note explaining the problem through the letter box. They must have looked at it straight away because they rang me by 8.40am telling me what the fault was, how much it was going to be to fix it, and when it would be ready. Very happy with the service they give, and will continue to use them. Thank you, and keep up the good work guys.
@Joy Smith: Happy New Year and many thanks for your great review – glad to be of service to you. Dave and the team.
Went to Pony Road and had a car service. The price was cheaper than main dealer and the quality of customer care was very good. I would use them again !!
I, like many others, found these guys whilst looking for ‘VW specialists’ on the tinterweb. I’ve used them a few times now. from cambelt changes to MOT’s, the standard of work is excellent & the fact that they are cheaper than dealerships is an added bonus, i can’t rate them highly enough. VW contacted me the other day to remind that my Golf is due a service soon & did i want to book it in with them? I said i know it’s due & no thanks, i will be booking it in with Pony Road!
Wow .. What an excellent experience. I found Pony Road auto Specialists via a search on Google. I read the feedback and decided to book my wife’s Mk5 Golf for its fourth long-life Service, an MOT and a Cam Belt/Water Pump change.
Before we go any further, it’s very clear that these guys operate with customer satisfaction at the forefront of their mind. This shows by their telephone manner, the conversations and the booking in of the car in a timely manner. The work was carried out precisely and to the letter with both confidence and knowledge. Additional work was also effectively communicated with options (both cost & time) available.
Pony Road Auto Specialists certainly know their cars, their customers and what t needs to do to ensure satisfaction and lots of return business. They’ve gained another regular customer and I can only recommend them to anyone else who wants a more than positive experience compared to VW Main Dealer. !0 out of 10 Guys – Please do not ever change!
Excellent service from Dave and his team in giving my 9 year old BMW 530D a service and fixing a couple of things which were identified during that service.
Good value for money and quality service care.
I am very happy with Dave and the team. Massive sigh of relief that I have found a garage I can trust. These guys are honest, objective, reliable and trustworthy. Will not rip you off like many out there who will. More than happy to spread the good word.
A very decent local garage who have managed to rectify problems with my mark 5 passat. Reliable and affordable service. Unlike dealers they can fix things rather than allow blind replacement of multiple unnecessary parts for a quick quid. Would have no hesitation in recommending this garage to friends and colleagues. Will use these guys again.
What a refreshing change! – my Clio’s brakes were making a grinding sound on the night before I was due to drive to the airport. I phoned the garage at 08.30 next morning and was told that they would ring back as soon as possible – which they did, and they managed to fit me in straight away. They took wheels off vehicle and checked brake pads and I was told that there was still plenty of wear on them, one of the guys put wheels back on and took it for a test run – but could hear nothing. I was told by boss that it may have been a bit of grit caught on pads and that he couldn’t charge me as they hadn’t done anything. Not quite true – you’ve proved that there are still people out there that give good service and are not rip-off merchants.
I have no hesitation in Thoroughly recommending this business
Just wanted to leave a note of praise and grateful thanks to Dave and his team for attending to the 12 year Audi A6 2.5 that my son bought for me at short notice, the day before I went on a long journey to Wales and Devon, on my own. Even though two staff were off that day due to illness, Dave took great care to fit us in. The car was in need of a full service and one or two other things. My son was very happy with the price quoted and the quality of the work.
The car was valeted and looked as good as new and went like a dream.
Thanks a million, June
Great service and great pricing…. Refreshing change from the ‘Fur coat and no knickers’ service at the Audi main dealers in Kidlington!
We’ve been taking our Skoda Fabia there for the last 2 years and have been impressed and very pleased with the price and quality of service. Dave and the team are extremely helpful and friendly. Can’t recommend them enough.
David and his team fitted Two new condencers and regassed my air conditioning system.. Used OE parts Excellent price well less than half that of Porsche . Job was carried out with no fuss and my car was returned fully valeted .. I am a very Happy Chap … William Allen
Really pleased with the work. Front brakes and pads were replaced with Audi parts at a much lower price than Audi dealer quoted. Work was done while I waited and I even got a good cup of tea. What’s not to like? I’ll use Pony Road again.
I’d been using Auto Technics for years – ever since I first found them when I owned a battered old VW Camper. I remained a customer through several changes of car, even though several of them have been outside of their specialisms. If anything the quality of service has improved since the move to Pony Road, and I can’t see any reason to look elsewhere. Highly recommended.
competent,caring, efficient,and friendly the guys take great care of my A6. Pricing is very competitive and the loyal customer discount is particularly welcome!
Keep up the good work
Have used this garage on several occasions now and have always found them to be knowledgable, professional and most importantly trustworthy. They are friendly and also provide a great customer service. I know they will solve any problem I have with my car efficiently and at a great cost.
They are the best garage in Oxfordshire and would highly recommend them to anyone needing work on their car and would say it is worth travelling those extra miles.
Thank you all at Pony Road Auto Specialists.
My A4 had all sorts of issues recently and the guys at Pony Road fit me in quickly and were really flexible with dropping it off and picking it up. Really friendly guys who kept me up to date with progress all day. Great job, good price! Will definitely be using them again!
My VW Polo died recently and I was left without a car! I spoke to the guys at Pony and they fitted me in so quickly. They came to my house and performed a few checks, telling me everything they were doing along the way. Then they took my car off to their garage and fixed everything extremely quickly and for a very reasonable price. These guys know what they’re talking about and are so friendly! I would recommend them to anyone and will certainly use them again myself.
I had a problem with the turbo on my A3, and looked for a local garage to sort the problem out, chose pony road motors as they had great reviews. To cut a long story short, the team gave me great advice, fitted a replacement turbo, and even dropped me off(and picked me up) from my workplace. Dave was very honest and genuine. Ray was very knowledgable. Jamie was an excellent chauffeur! Will definitely use the garage again, and this is another positive review to add to the many others….
I booked my Skoda Octavia Estate in for a 150000 mile service last week, all work required was done on time and within budget.
On collection the car had been given a full valet including all upholstery very impressed.
I recommend this garage to all Skoda and VW owners.
I recently had a full service and cam belt change carried out here. The costs were fully detailed, and I was kept fully informed on progress while the work was being done. My car was ready on time, with no additional costs added to the already reasonable bill. If you wish your car to be serviced by professional people who do a very good job, at a reasonable price and stick to the times they originally provided, then you need look no further than here. I will be bringing my Bora back to them if for any future servicing or mechanical work. Thoroughly recommended!
Good service, impartial advice, willingness to help – a positive experience all round.
Took my passat in for a diagnostics check, and to have a “clunking” sound checked out…the problem was explained to me fully, and I was given various options as to what needed doing, and what could be put off until I was a bit more flush. The opportunity to be ripped off was there…but these guys know that’s not in their interest.
I WILL be using this garage in the future, and would recommend it highly to others.
Ive used Pony Road Auto Specialists a few times now and am happy.
I feel comfortable going there as being a women theres always the worry you might get ripped off but you dont at all at this garage i find the service exceptional and pricing extreamly reasonable i couldn’t recommend Dave and the team more if you are considering using them stop searching now and call them you wont be dissapointed i couldnt recommend them more.
Dave and the team are brilliant. The VW bluemotion service and MOT was no nonsense. Since then the team have stayed late to fix a broken lock and repaired all sorts. They will recommend a range of options depending on your budget and will point you to other firms for things they don’t do, like paintwork. Great company too, if you need to hang out there whilst a repair’s made.
I have used Ponyroad now a couple of times – for a service and then went back for some other work to be done. On both occasions a fabulous service – clear info, good prices and will definitely go back again.
@Julia: Thank you Julia, so pleased you are happy with our service – please tell your friends!
Have been using Marcus and Ray for Over 6 Years and now with Dave. They make a brilliant team, provide a great service, are very professional, diagnostics are bang on and are very well priced.
They are always willing to help – they have looked after me quite a few times when my cars been in trouble.
They work on most makes of cars also. Would recommend them to anyone.
Very pleased. Last June the car was put into a local dealer to rectify a knocking noise which was diagnosed to be coming from the anti roll bar. This was replaced but not the bushes (as we subsequently found out) and initially the car seemed quieter. Within a month the noise was back but due to other problems with the garage we did not feel confident to take it back. The noise gradually became worse and based on reviews on this website I decided to try Pony Road Autos. They listened to my description of the problem over the phone and resolved it in a single visit. Whilst I am not that close to them I would prefer to travel a little further and feel confident about the people working on my car. Many thanks.
First time VW owner and needed an Oxford garage. I couldn’t be happier. Took my Golf for a service and found them to be professional, trustworthy and with great customer service.
Very good service recieved. I would recommend this garage. Good work done and they kept me well informed too. A welcome change after being messed about & ripped off by a VW main agent.
Have had 2 cars serviced recently. very good service and advice. the local pick up and drop off is very useful. Glad to have found a local reasonably priced garage. Recommended.
Super helpful, quick, efficient and reliable personal service. Have helped me in an emergency as well as MOT routine service. Happy to recommend this garage.
I have recently had two cars serviced and repairedat this garage. Each car required extensive work in terms of time and parts. I was kept informed at all times and was advised of the cost implications. Now that the cars are completed I can appreciate the quality of the advice I was given and I am extremely happy with all the work done. I can confidently recommend this garage to anyone looking for good, friendly service, backed up with reliable workmanship at a good price. I am delighted to have discovered Pony Road Auto Specialists – a well earned name!
Very happy with my service and mot. Will definitely use again and highly recommended!
Im lucky to work very near to this garage.on friday 13th car would not start – its a fiesta diesel – they quickly found the culprit was a dead battery – caused by a faulty alternator over charging which had “destroyed” the battery.both were replaced at a reasonable cost -I recommend them highly – they will get all my work in future
I always used these guys when they were Auto Technics. I’m a police officer and my shifts are all over the place. Fast reliable service is paramount.
I took my car to Pony Road for an MOT at 0900hrs. I knew there were some issues with my car as the left spring was loose and rattling. MOT was done within the hour. Spring was confirmed broken and there were some other minor things. (my fault, and it is a very old car!)
These guys got all my parts, fitted them, and had the car re-MOT’d within 4 hours. Re-MOT was free of course. Labour cost was 2 hours which is more than reasonable for the parts fitted.
The rates these guys charge is far less than anyone alse and with that you get what I can honestly say is the best service in Oxford and around. I paid half of what I budgeted for.
I travel a 25 mile round trip just to go to these guys as I dont trust any other garages.
I took my Golf to Pony Road for the first time for it’s service and MOT and knowing nothing about cars they were great to me. They explained everything and also called to let me know about extra work that needed doing before going ahead and doing it.
Great service and great price.
Throughly recommend this garage.
Like many other posters used autotechnics in the past and following their recent closure found this garage online.
Prompt, efficient service and will be using again for servicing and repairs on my A6.
I have had my Audi A6 serviced by Pony Road Auto Specialists for the first time. What can I say other than other reviews on this company — Excelent service – Excelent staff – and prices that put Audi dealerships to shame
Dave and his colleagues at Pony Road are great to deal with. We’ve had two 10+ year old cars sorted – an A4 Audi Quattro and an aging BMW 3 Series. Communication is great and they clearly know what they are doing. Definitely recommend them.
I have an Audi A3 3.2L Quattro. That had a problem with the engine cutting out. I took it to another garage and they couldn’t find the fault, so I tried Pony Road, they where very helpful and found the fault and where able to fix it at a very reasonable price compared to the Official Audi garage quote. I wouldn’t hesitate recomending them.
This is one of them very rare garages where you get more than you pay for . Great customer service value for money and a fantastic job done i loved the fact that what ever they were having to do to the car they contacted us first to make sure it was ok ad told us how much it was all going to cost.I will be telling all my friends and family to go there . thankyou for all your hard work.
Friendly, well priced, knowledgeable. Everything that you want from a garage but seems increasingly hard to find. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Same as above, found this garage online when looking for vw specialists in Oxford. Had used autotechnics before and was very surprised to see them gone. My car needed its yearly service, so was well happy when I found these chaps in pony road. I’ve already told a couple of people about it, and will definitely use them again myself.
The work was done promptly, and they even valeted my car, (didn’t expect that,it was filthy, inside and out) so very pleased with them all,
Glad to find you.
I am so pleased to find a friendly garage that I can rely on.
My Audi A4 3.0 Convertible is 9 yrs old and in great condition, I felt the last few times we have had servicing at Audi Dealers the garage wanted me to buy a new car from them and charged the earth for work on my car !!!!!!
So thank you for all your hard work and we will defiantly recommend you to our friends as we were recommended.
As another reviewer says I found this garage when I was searching around for a VW specialist in Oxford.
I took my Golf Mk4 TDi in for a full service including a cambelt change. There was some extra work that needed doing and Pony Road (Dave, I think) explained everything and checked with me before going ahead.
Excellent customer service, very decent price (well below dealer prices) and I will certainly be using them again.
No hesitation in recommending this garage.
My 1 Series BMW turbo broke one month after warranty finished , I took the car to this place after being shocked by main dealer prices, they just replaced and did what was needed and 1K cheaper than the BMW garage.
They also found out why my car sounded like a tractor and fixed it, something BMW garage had missed every time I took the car there.
The car is now better than when I bought it, so I just can recommend them, I was always well informed, more than reasonable prices and it seems these guys knows what they were doing.
I had my clutch done here found it great value and super fast, they fitted it same day by about 4!! Friendly staff would defo go back and recommend to anyone, many thanks guys
Had some poor experiences over the years from other garages – poor customer service, poor diagnosis, inflated bills, not carrying out repairs properly etc. I did some research & found this garage. Brought in my Mk 4 Golf TDI which needed serious help. I got great customer service with a full explanation about fitting original and OEM parts to my vehicle and given a choice, was provided the price which I was happy with, and car booked in quickly. Following a full service and mechanical repairs with warranty, I got my car back on time, valeted. The car drives great again. I would highly recommend this garage.
great garage and price will definitely use them again
I found this garage online, and following further enquiries found them to be very good value for money. Finally found the twins from autotechnics!
And will definitely recommend this garage to anyone who needs their car fixed!
@Thyrsis:No sorry can’t help you with that
