    Always take my car to Gents garage for my MOT’s as it’s over the road from where I work, what a great bunch of staff there, really helpful and willing to help when you have a problem as l did with my VW Tiguan . I thought it needed a new thermostat or sender unit but they fixed it for me and l didn’t need either. Heating system is working great now and they also did an air conditioning... Read More

    Arrived unannounced with a puncture and Graham and his team rearranged their work schedule to be able to sort my puncture and get me back on the road. Graham himself carried out the work before going to lunch . Once again great service. Thanks.

    I’ve used Gent’s garage for years now for each of the cars I’ve had and I am very happy with the service they provide. I completely trust the work that they do on my car and I’ve never incurred any unnecessary expense. Everyone I’ve met there is friendly and It’s also a bonus that I get a lift to work when I drop my car off.

    Exceptional service after my car failed it’s MOT yesterday. Chris and Andy really looked after me. They took the time to explain the defects with my car, provided a quote and answered all my questions. I decided to go ahead with the repair. I expected to have to re-book for another day but they managed to get the required works done that same day! Wonderful service from a garage of genuinely... Read More

Comprehensive Brake Check

If you’re serious about keeping you and your family safe, and you’re tired of expensive braking issues, a comprehensive brake check in Sittingbourne is the way to go.

It’s about peace of mind. It’s about knowing you’ve taken all safety precautions. And, it’s about a much happier wallet.

What’s involved in a comprehensive brake check?


We check the performance of all your brakes and the brake balance on our rolling road.


Next, we check and adjust how the handbrake operates to ensure there’s no room for error.


Front brake pads are checked for serviceability, then stripped and refit, if necessary. As with any checks, we’ll consult you before performing any additional repairs.


We’ll measure your front brake discs for how they perform, including run out. Then, we perform the exact same checks on your rear brakes.


After your brake discs and pads are confirmed as being efficient, we’ll test your brake fluid and top it up where required.


Your brake callipers and wheel cylinders are then inspected for serviceability.


And, the condition of all brake hoses and hydraulic lines are checked too.


Finally, we’ll carry out a diagnostic scan of the ABS and traction control system for any historic or current fault code.
