Customer Reviews

Wayne H
Good and quick work carried out on my vehicle. Brakes back up to 100%.

Stuart P
This was the first time I had used Phoenix Car Works having obtained their details from a fellow Mercedes Benz owner locally. Paul couldn’t have been more accommodating and fixed an electrical problem I had with my E220 on the spot and was both engaging, knowledgable and passionate about Mercedes Benz cars and I will certainly use his services in the future.

Alan P

Paul at Phoenix Car Works was very helpful diagnosing some noises in my Mini. Also helping us select our next car, a Mercedes. I’ve already recommended Phoenix car works to a friend, and will definitely be using them again in the future.

James J
Paul has looked after my 1980 Mercedes 450 SL, 1984 380 SE, 1990 500 SEC and 1984 Porsche 944. He has carried out a wide variety of jobs from electric window replacement and fuel system repairs to refitting panels and exhaust fabrication. Always very polite and professional whilst possesssig fantastic engineering skills. Highly recommended.

Christopher W
I had quite a major problem with my Chrysler car that other 2 other garages could not sort out. Paul at Phoenix Car Works was recommended to me via a colleague and I have to say that he sorted the car out in ultra quick time and very reasonabley priced. I liked the professional way that he dealt with matters. Already booked the car in for its service in December. Give him a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Gillian L
Very pleased with the work carried out on my Mercedes S500. Door mirror now working after they found a broken wire, other jobs all ticked off. So very pleased. Very happy to recommend Phoenix Car Works.

Andrew J
The owner of Phoenix Car Works is experienced Engineer Paul Blake. For several years he has carried out routine servicing and more complex work on my families classic Porsche, Mercedes and Alvis motor cars. He will repair components when possible rather than replace, and his attention to detail is commendable. He will find innovative solutions to complex problems which has proven to be very cost effective. He always provides detailed written records of work with clear expectations and outcomes. Paul always welcomes you to visit and inspect ongoing projects and provides good value for money.

Just to say a big THANK YOU you to Paul – A top man with all the skills I need in putting matters right!! – To summarise – I bought a powerful (320HP) stripped out Clio cup – fully forged & Supper charged. The Car at first looks seemed a real weapon of a track car and well sorted. However – with greater scrutiny on Paul’s ramp and a short fast drive by me it was clear the previous owner simply was not factual (liar) it was clear the car had significant problems with the drive shafts, gearbox, suspension, wiring -ect – to be frank the list was very LONG! (silly me) – After a full inspection by Paul & a plan of attack agreed I left the car with him to do things how an engineer should approach matters. Paul was fantastic – he offered the kind of service that a garage simply will not offer as this was a personal approach to my car as if it was his own with the engineering practices tackled how I would have but did not have the time to do so. Top service from a Top man so glad I used him!
