“Top service from the person I dealt with and the team.”

Written on: 09/06/2019 by Korad (1 review written)

I have dealt with this man and his team at the National Engine Centre for several years now. I have always had top quality service from them. They arrange free pick-up of your car if it is damaged or needs repaired, and will give you a temporary vehicle - free of charge - whilst they carry out the work on your vehicle. I bought an M5 from someone whom I thought was a reputable dealer. When I took it to the person I dealt with for a service, he fully inspected the car and found several… Read Full Review

“Very pleased with the service”

Written on: 10/11/2018 by AdamW1980 (1 review written)

After seeing some reviews I was a bit concerned but they were recommended to me by the LandRover main dealer in Newport who they regularly do work for. They put a Gold Seal engine in my Range Rover Sport and I was vey impressed with the service. Had the job checked by my local garage afterwards and they said it was perfect (and they have used them since I understand). Its very easy to leave bad reviews nowadays but few people leave good reviews as its too much hassle. Thats why I have left this… Read Full Review

“Do not use this lot. Find a reputable company if you...”

Written on: 05/08/2018 by Danteh18 (1 review written)

Do not use this lot. Find a reputable company if you are having engine trouble.  They will give you a big story about how great they are but will eventually do very sub standard work, charging for work not done and doing the very least they can. they had my 6 series and stripped the engine but did not skim the head. They used a silicon sealant along with the head gaskets to seal the engine. Broke various pipes and glued then back together... Yes glued them. That is just part of the story… Read Full Review

“These reviews must be written by family or friends!”

Written on: 07/04/2018 by LaraRussell (1 review written)

My bmw was so poor after they refurbished the engine that I part ex'd it the day after giving these clowns £2.3k to fix it. Took weeks and basically got it to run and washed their hands of it. Avoid please...they must have someone running marketing now as the reviews are so much better. If you decide to use them get what they will and won't do in writing as they are sneaky as… Read Full Review

“Very professional and knowledgeable”

Written on: 21/11/2017 by SammBrown (1 review written)

Fair play to these guys they really turned a situation of hell into heaven for me. Told us exactly what they were going to do to our Zafira, loaned me a mpv to so i could carry on with life with the kids as normal, had fantastic support right from the beginning. Knowledge was second to none, and passion of the job really shone through. Highly recommend. Everything was done the right way with outstanding levels of expertise and the price remained the same as the emailed quote… Read Full Review

“Job done in a Jiffy”

Written on: 19/10/2017 by JohnnDavis (1 review written)

My wife found this company in cardiff within minutes of putting a search into the google internet for a recon engine at the beginning of the month. The turnaround time and workmanship has been incredible, I have had my van back now for over a week and it is driving spot on. I feared I was going to be out of work a lot longer, 100% recommend National Engine Centre to anyone needing a recon engine… Read Full Review

“First Class Service”

I cannot recommend them highly enough. The wealth of knowledge they have is incredible, they told me my own story of how my engine went wrong and it was precise to the Tee !! Quick turn around and my vehicle is driving A1 again, what a great service they have provided, the two guys I dealt with are second to none and more importantly I trusted them implicitly from the off !… Read Full Review

“Very upfront and honest company”

Written on: 20/06/2017 by Hana354 (1 review written)

Very upfront and honest company. was given a quote straight away via a telephone call. My car to my surprise was collected the following day, While the work took a little longer than expected i was informed every step of the way which i was pleased about ( put my mind at rest being that i had read some bad reviews but some of these reviews i realised where from 10 years ago) and the price never got higher which was pleasing. If i was to ever encounter any problems with my car engine again i can… Read Full Review

“Good Quality Engine Centre ”

Written on: 08/06/2017 by XKRguy (1 review written)

These guys really do know their engines, was kept informed all the way, had a video whatsapp to me of the progress of my car. having a reconditioned engine is great value for money even though my local garage quoted me more to repair my own. Very friendly and informative staff from the initial quote to the delivery driver dropping my vehicle back. With all due respect hopefully I wont need to use them in future, but i recommend anybody who find themselves in a position with a knackered engine… Read Full Review

“Largest selection of engines in the UK”

Written on: 24/05/2017 by Harrald (0 reviews written)

Very impressed with size of this outfit, based in Cardiff South Wales. Had lots of quotes from online companies that wanted to collect my car but seemed to have little flaws in there sales pitch and none of them could send me a photograph e of the engine there were going to fit in my car. I contacted National Engine Centre and to my amazement they even offered me the opportunity to visit their premises to see the exact engine that would be fitted to my Jaguar XKR and also how the whole process… Read Full Review
