About Autosolutions

Autosolutions began trading in 1999 and originally offered mobile service and repair. As the business grew it became clear that a workshop was required in order to satisfy the growing customer base and larger workload. The mobile service was discontinued in 2001. Today Autosolutions is based at our workshop in Newbury.

My wife and I have used Autosolutions for some years and we find the company excellent. The work is thorough, the technical knowledge deep and the service friendly and accommodating. There is also a ready appreciation of the economics of older cars where appropriate; i.e. maintaining them safely and well but with minimised expenditure.

I have known Autosolutions since its inception in 1999 and have always found them to be highly professional, reliable, and of course priced well below main dealers. While they are top Peugeot specialists they are proficient on any make of vehicle and modern electronics. Over the years they have carried out extensive work on my Lotus and Alfa Romeo cars , always to my total satisfaction.

Alfa Romeo owner

I rate Autosolutions very highly – youre always ready to answer a question (even if it seems silly to you!) and you find a space to look at the car if you think that’s whats needed. You don’t “find” things to do but Im happy that you do whats needed and keep me (and everyone else!) safe. Im not sure if youre expensive as I have nothing to compare with, but Im happy to know that weve had a long relationship and I know youll be helpful and keep my lovely car going as long as possible! I cant think of anything negative to say but if I do, Ill let you know!

Hi Mike, just wanted to thank you for your brilliant service last week when my VW Golf failed its MOT on a broken road spring, 24 hoursfrom initial call to collecting my car with an MOT! This experience made me realise how much my family appreciate having a reliable honest garage we can depend on. Thinking back it must be over 10 years since we first used your services to sort the brakes on my son's little Citroen. Keep up the good work

I have for many years driven Peugeot cars as indeed have other members of my family.Approximately three years ago I had a mechanical issue which my normal service engineer was unable to identify the problem and recommended that I deal direct with a Peugeot specialist. I knew about the normal Peugeot dealerships but went on line for a local specialist and came up with Autosolutions .After a telephone conversation I decided to try this company and very pleased I did as the problem was quickly identified and dealt with very professionally. Since that occasion I have indeed had cause to use Autosoltions at other times the most recent of which was this week when I had a fault with the heating system on my Peugeot 407.This turned out to be quite a major job but again quite clearly Mr Butler was very competent in dealing with the fault and I would have no hesitations in recommending his services.

Autosolutions lives up to its name. It is run by a very competent motor service engineer, who delivers. It provides good, cost-effective, working answers to car service problems. It is conveniently located. Key service features experienced, are: 1 Clear, honest, accurate diagnoses of the minimum work needed to get you back on the road, giving actual prices where known, or price guides where open-ended. 2 Clear advice on future work needed and suggested timeline. 3 Clear advice on linked work which could or should be undertaken at the same time as other work to give cost savings. 4 Prompt service, completed to time. 5 Willingness to use original equipment manufactures’ components and parts (e.g. Bosch) in place of the car manufactures’ complete, expensive, assemblies, at considerable cost savings to the customer, and be prepared to source them and assemble them. 6 Willingness to use quality used replacement body panels to keep costs down. 7 Fast response to emergencies.

Great service and first class work. If you need something fixed or serviced by a fully qualified technician then look no further than Autosolutions. The suspension on my Peugeot 807 recently collapsed leaving my car in a very sorry state but all fixed in record time and at a very good price without any hassle give them a try you wont be dissapointed.

Mike at Autosolutions has been looking after my work vans, ie Vauxhall, Peugeot, Citroen for over 20yrs. Mike is very knowledgeable about his trade, very honest and his cost are very reasonable, when compared to main dealer costs. I would recommend Autosoultions to anyone, as I always do.

Shane Chandler

Citroen Owner (formerly Peugeot)

Autosolutions have been servicing my car for the last seven years as an older lady driver it's important to have someone to trust and who is reliable always a good experience.

Patricia Knight

Citroen Owner

It was many years ago now that I first took my Peugeot to Mike's shop Autosolutions when he was still based in Reading. Even now that the shop has moved to Newbury, I keep on coming back because Mike’s quality of service, and prices, are the best. I had a few run-ins with the official dealership garages in the area before (pretty much all of them), and have always been disappointed, if not enraged, with their lack of engineering skill, lack of care in execution, downright unsafe errors introduced to the car when releasing it, over-charging and just your general bad attitude surly talk-down-at-you mechanic when you have to bring back a car a third or a fourth time for a problem that they’ve said they’ve fixed but didn’t (even though they happily charge for every visit). Mike has been a revelation, by comparison – he’s honest, great integrity, timely, keeps his word, always takes the time to explain technical matters and patient even with intractable problems like the intermittent electrical faults that can plague certain models of Peugeot. Autosolutions is hooked up with the official Peugeot diagnostic software, so whether the fault is electrical, mechanical or in the BSi, can diagnose and remediate quickly and efficiently.My car has gone from being in the shop pretty much all the time on expensive mystery repairs with the official dealerships, to humming along without problem in between annual servicing since I started going to Mike's Autosolutions instead. Highly recommended!

Thank you very much for replacing the clutch on my 207 gti. As i drove away from the garage it was smooth as silk, almost a different car and on the m4 on the way home it was a delight to drive. Once again you nailed it. Look forward to using your services in the future once again. Thank you very much.
