Common Faults

Some issues on many vehicles are quite common. Autospark deals with these and many other issues on a daily basis. What does that mean to you? Simply, we come across problems that happen all the time, or paricularly are common to certain makes and models of vehicles. This equates to a streamlined service and possibly better cost, simply because the issue can be resolved without spending too much time determining the cause, because it is common. This is helpful to you especially, as it results in a quicker service and potentially lower cost to repair.
