The Hampshire town of Eastleigh sits 5 miles to the north of our Southampton workshop, where Salek’s Motors provides garage services as an independent Mercedes specialist. We perform engine repairs on all models from this prestige German marque, including automatic gearbox repairs. Mercedes owners from the Eastleigh area, as well as those who own a make or model from another manufacturer, can also use us for MOT testing.
It is our work as a Mercedes specialist that we focus on over the course of this page.
We know only too well that engine and automatic gearbox repairs at a Mercedes main dealership cost more than equivalent garage services provided by an independent outlet. After all, money to cover expensive showrooms and unpaid warranty work doesn’t just grow on trees. It’s always the customer who foots the final bill, somebody just like you!
Customers from the Eastleigh area who choose us as a preferred independent Mercedes specialist never need to worry about paying more for car servicing, engine repairs or MOT testing. All garage services at Salek’s Motors come at competitive prices, which undergo review as part of our accredited membership to Bosch Autocrew and the Autofirst Network.
The ongoing reliability of any Mercedes model is regular servicing. Some owners in Eastleigh have reservations about using an independent Mercedes specialist thinking the standard of workmanship won’t be as good. At Salek’s Motors, this is certainly not the case. Our garage services comply with manufacturer schedules not just on the Mercedes marque, but with all popular makes and models driven in the UK.
We train our technicians to the same standards as dealerships. Book in for full or interim servicing with confidence knowing we’ll not only help to preserve a stamped history but will also perform the work without invalidating any warranties.
Because criteria for MOT testing comes from the DVSA and not the manufacturer, there’s little reason to use a dealership Mercedes specialist in Eastleigh for annual inspections. Class IV tests take place in dedicated bays to guarantee sensible turnarounds between appointments, and to allow for MOT testing on a walk-in basis. Salek’s Motors and its inspectors have full approval from the DVSA to perform Class IV MOTs.
We even provide a convenient repair service for MOT testing failures. To further support this repair side of our garage services, Salek’s Motors offers free re-tests upon completion.
It stands to reason that people think manual engine repairs, and automatic gearbox repairs, need the attention of a Mercedes specialist from a dealership workshop. We’d like to reassure you that our traditional engine repairs, such as alternator, starter motor and water pump replacements, fall inside current manufacturer specifications. Our company uses OEM parts or, on request, original manufacturer components.
Have your engine repairs undertaken by Salek’s Motors and receive an equivalent warranty on original manufacturer components and a similarly reassuring guarantee on OEM parts.
Automatic Gearbox Repairs
Very few independent garages in Eastleigh or the surrounding areas deliver the exact same standards of excellence that we can apply to automatic gearbox repairs. The level of knowledge for this type of work, in comparison to repairs on a manual gearbox, requires extensive training not just in the mechanical side of things, but also in engine management.
Modern Mercedes models have an ECU fitted to help us assess the subsystem using innovative diagnostic tools.
Salek’s Motors is Eastleigh’s favourite choice for manual and automatic gearbox repairs. Although we operate as a Mercedes specialist, we happily perform gearbox and engine repairs on other marques including Audi, BMW, VW and other German brands.
