“Once again first class service ”

Written on: 14/10/2021

I have used The ECU doctor a couple of times now and have passed their details on to others in the same boat. I have never had anyone come back to me with a negative comment they have all been more than happy with the service. Very quick turnaround to the very north of Mainland Scotland and when I had a small issue I contacted them and they were happy to give advice and even took the ECU back to check it for me, great service. I can not fault these guys, competitive price and warranty why look… Read Full Review

“Honest fast service”

Written on: 28/05/2021 by circlevision (1 review written)

I live in France and was getting fed up with contacting ECU companies who never responded. Within an hour of contacting the ECU Doctor I knew the cost and terms of an ECU replacement for my Audi TT. The car had been throwing up error codes and running rich. They were honest enough to say they couldnt fix my ECU but could flash a replacement with the car's signature. In what was a pretty fast turnaround I got a replacement ECU which worked perfectly and cured the car's problems isntantly. The… Read Full Review

“Absolute Diamond of a Service.!!”

Written on: 27/05/2021 by JayFreelander (2 reviews written)

I was advised by my mechanic that my ECU was faulty probably due to a spike on battery exchange. Spoke to ECU DR in Plymouth after a longish search on google. The ladies on the initial call asked for a summary and called back to advise they would be able to look at the unit and took my details sent the unit in and 5 days later a package with the replacement arrived which however did not solve the problem eventually a true specialist mechanic diagnosed the problem and fixed the car. I called up… Read Full Review

“Great service, quick turnaround.”

Written on: 17/03/2021 by BarryFe (1 review written)

Excellent communication from the ECU doctor from initial enquiries to carrying out work on my ECU. Very friendly tone both in emails and on phone. Kept updated throughout and was at most 3 working days from start to finish. Very fair pricing compared to some quotes I received and is guaranteed for 12 months too. The price I paid for repairs is less than I could have sourced a secondhand unit, which could easily have developed same faults as mine at any time… Read Full Review

“Focus mk3 1.6tdci ECU ”

Written on: 14/03/2021 by GazTruck (1 review written)

My Focus 1.6d on a 61plate 78k miles on clock would not rev above 1500rpm and had numerous faults, was advised by garage that the ECU was shot and I’d be better off scraping car! Spoke to ECU doctor and they said send it in they’ll have a look, a replacement was sent back to me which I installed, car’s back on the road no problem running better than ever, thanks ECU Doctor for all your help, yes it cost me £400 but what price do you put on replacing a car not to mention the hassle. Very… Read Full Review

I am very disappointed, I sent my faulty ecu for a ford KA which is a very basic ecu to be repaired ,Doc contacted me and said they couldn’t repair my ecu so they sent me a replacement supposedly plug and play ecu . The cost of this unit was approximately £360 , this unit did enable the car to run but left numerous lights on the dash , flashing eml ,traction control light and stop start light, none of these faults where on my old ecu Doc said send it back and he will rectify these new… Read Full Review

“Restored to full health!”

Written on: 19/08/2020 by Ploughboy (1 review written)

Quality service from the ECU doctor. From my first contact by phone I felt confident and assured of the outcome. The doc knew about the ECU in my car (. Panda 4x4 ). Good start! He didn’t jump straight in saying he could fix it. He said he d check first and may have to refer me somewhere else (very good feeling about this) However he phoned back and said he could do it. I got a detailed set of requests for info he needed and sent off the ECU. 2 days later I got a call saying it was fixed and… Read Full Review

“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

After a NorthWest electrician mis-diagnosed a faulty ECU , the fantastic team here at ECU DOCTORS returned the non-needed unit and refunded me a large percentage.
