“I am disappointed, because they were reluctant to...”

Written on: 12/02/2020 by wlDuffy448 (1 review written)

I am disappointed, because they were reluctant to return my faulty units. The lady on the phone had to put me on hold and ask someone, because she said that they don’t normally return them. I was quite determined to have it back, because it is mine! Obviously it’s more convenient to sell you a used reprogrammed unit, than try and fix yours. The fact that they are reluctant to return faulty units, makes me think that they fix them anyway and sell them for a lot more money to the next… Read Full Review

“Fantastic service ”

Written on: 12/02/2020 by andym555 (1 review written)

Superb service from start to finish. Had a problem with my Kia Carens that had been with a local Kia dealer for a few months. The ECU doctor was recommended to me by a friend as Kia suspected the ECU to be at fault. After the ECU was sent to the ECU doctor they were straight on it. They found a fault, told me the price for a replacement part which I gave the go ahead too, then the ECU was back to me the next working day. Fitted it myself and the car started straight away and has been great… Read Full Review

“ECU micra repair ”

Written on: 16/12/2019 by Iceman123456 (1 review written)

I have left writing a review couple of months and the repair has been great... The service we received was brilliant ECU was repaired and returned with ease and speed. I was sceptical about repair of ECU due to cost but the results are perfect ! The cost of a new ECU was over £750 inc VAT. I spoke to the staff both on the phone and online they was always very professional, knowledgeable and polite. Saved my mums Micra from the scrap yard she is delighted. Many Thanks ! 5 STAR REVIEW… Read Full Review

“Honest with superb service”

Written on: 25/11/2019 by Danydyn (1 review written)

I contacted the ecu doctor via the online form and received a call within quarter of an hour. Following discussion, I was advised to conduct further examination and contact back prior to sending the item off. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable and could have easily told me to send the ecu to them and charged me for it. I'ts not every day that companies in the motoring industry are talked about as being honest and having morals. This is however the most honest company I have come across and… Read Full Review

Service from this company was second to none, fast repair and return. All done within 4 days. All went smoothly from a phone answered from a helpful friendly lady.

“A quick and painless service ”

Written on: 26/09/2019 by annaastephenson (1 review written)

After receiving the bad news from a garage that I required a new ECU and feeling in despair, I came across this company online while searching head in hands. I emailed, and they got back immediately to say they could quite possibly help. My spirits raised, I sent my ECU and the following day they called me to say they'd received it (North of Scotland, Special Delivery) They let me know what would happen, if they couldn't repair it I would be sent a reconditioned unit at a fraction of the cost… Read Full Review

“Fantastic”

Written on: 14/06/2019

One phone call to very knowledgeable people. Easy to communicate with. No Nonsense. No Blagging. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. And no, I did not get a fee for this! A little expensive but now I have an asset to sell instead of a junker to dispose of - so Money well spent! Note for you - do not forget to note ALL the numbers from your old unit - both sides and quote them all. … Read Full Review

“Ford Fusion tdci ECU”

Written on: 18/09/2018 by Davewh0911 (1 review written)

I am having starting problems with a Ford Fusion 1.6 tdci. The usual suspects were checked - battery, starter motor, ignition switch, relays, fuses but to no avail. Suspecting an ECU problem I called in some "experts" for some diagnostics - big mistake! To cut a very long story, having given up with the cowboys and their £800 proposal I found ECU Doctor by chance and decided to take a trial ECU to swap out with my suspect unit. ECU Doctor couldn't have been more helpful and after several e… Read Full Review

“5 Stars ECU Doctor Ltd”

Written on: 02/09/2018 by Rayanj331 (1 review written)

Needed a ECU replacement found a few companies that did it with varying prices however I rang only two but ECU Doctor was the best option for me as I had faults with the car after repeated break downs. ECU Doctor allow you to test the ECU which is far cheaper than trying to get the ECU repaired. Ford recommended a brand new replacement at £1100 but I trusted the test ecu from ECU Doctor seeing it would cost the least money to test if my ecu was faulty. The transfer from old ecu to a… Read Full Review

“Great service, highly recommended”

Written on: 09/08/2018 by lunaticrik (1 review written)

I had an issue with my 2007 Ford Mondeo 2.5t and an auto electrician told me it was the ECU at fault. After some Googling I came across The ECU Doctor. A quick email to them they said they will be able to exchange my ECU for a known working one if I send them my suspected faulty one so they could transfer the data over. I did this because I was at my wits end with the car after trying every possible solution. I got the replacement ECU back three days later and fitted it to my car but sadly… Read Full Review

“Should have tried this company first rather than last”

Written on: 27/07/2018 by atcs1948 (1 review written)

Having tried a few ECU companies advertising on Ebay and all to no avail i was ready to buy a new ECU from Volvo when I came across the ECU doctor in Plympton Plymouth and as they are local to me I dropped off my faulty ECU and 2 days later a new one was returned to me(at a very competitive price I might add) further more there was no need of any software it was literally plug and play overall they probably saved me in excess of £500 from the main agent. I can't recommend this company enough… Read Full Review

“Should have gone to The ECU Doctor first!”

Written on: 10/07/2018

Would highly recommend the services of The ECU Doctor and wish I'd gone there first time round, rather than having the car off the road for a considerable time! Car was failing to start and the ECU was suspected. ECU was sent to another repair shop originally and after a minor repair came back as serviceable. However, car still failed to start. A considerable amount of time was then wasted testing every wire, sensor, etc only to conclude that the problem had to be the ECU. Having had several… Read Full Review

“Prompt and efficient”

Written on: 16/06/2018 by dedalos (1 review written)

Fixing or replacing an ECU is not an easy job. It is always an expensive repair but most of all it is a crucial repair that you want it done efficiently or not al all. Unable to find reliable ECU repair services in Greece, I decided to try sending it to the UK where I knew the repair would be treated with more professionalism. Sending it to the ECU doctor fulfilled all my expectations. Quick service, polite communication, reliable information and most importantly, 12 months warranty! I would be… Read Full Review
