Tyres & Vehicle Diagnostics in Didcot, Wallingford and Oxfordshire

Our servicing, repair and MOT garage combines all of the benefits of traditional customer service with a modern approach to our work. We’re incredibly proud of our progressive outlook on garage services, and also in our continued investment into the industry’s most innovative engine management equipment. Chequers Garage Ltd uses vehicle diagnostics to resolve engine sub-system issues for customers in Didcot, Wallingford and all surrounding areas. Based in Aston Tirrold, we are within just 6 miles of Cholsey and Harwell.

We also use vehicle diagnostics as an indicator for safety because most modern cars use brake pads with wear sensors, which illuminate the dashboard when replacements are due. And, while the wheels are off, Chequers Garage will inspect your tyres too. It’s all a part of the great service we provide for Didcot, Wallingford and Oxfordshire motorists.

If you would like to book in for a vehicle diagnostics check or an inspection of your tyres, please call us on 01235 850347 and leave everything else in our capable hands.


Vehicle Diagnostics Explained

Modern cars have complex electrical sub-systems which relay information about possible faults to an engine control unit, or ECU. The ECU has a port which our technicians plug into with advanced code reading equipment. This is the vehicle diagnostics process and one of our more advanced garage services. The code reading equipment retrieves stored codes, which our technicians interpret for our Didcot, Wallingford and Oxfordshire customers.

The interpretation helps us to recommend the most suitable method of repair or part replacement. As you can see, vehicle diagnostics cut out much of the painstaking work associated with mechanical troubleshooting, particularly when looking for issues with the brakes, steering parts, suspension, electrical features and even the windscreen wipers.

Very few workshops in Didcot or Wallingford have garage services detailed enough to match us when it comes to vehicle diagnostics. The equipment we use has manufacturer and industry approval, and represents the very best of the modern automotive repair sector.

New Tyres Supplied and Fitted

While the equipment we have available won’t be of much use when it comes to visual inspections, Chequers Garage Ltd can still perform ‘diagnostics’ for your tyres. Come down to our Aston Tirrold workshop and we’ll perform a manual inspection of your tyres to ensure they are safe and roadworthy. Customers from across Oxfordshire, including Harwell and Cholsey, pick our garage as their first-choice for tyre maintenance, repair and replacement.

If you have noticed changes in driving characteristics, such as vibrations or whining noises, it might be a good time to replace your tyres. Blisters, slits and cracks in the sidewall also highlight the need for replacement, as does reduced tread depth. We have a wide range of premium and quality tyres in stock ready for supplying and fitting.

Fast-Fit Centres in the Didcot, Wallingford and Oxfordshire area often charge additional costs when fitting tyres, usually for what we regard as inclusive garage services such as weighting or balancing. When we offer a quote for new tyres, the price we give you is the price you pay and we never charge extra for what we believe should come as standard.

Call 01235 850347 to book in for vehicle diagnostics or new tyres. We provide garage services for trade and private customers throughout Didcot, Wallingford and Oxfordshire.
