On Friday the 26th of March, Exhaust A Fix will be closing our doors for one last time. This next week of operations will be our last as we prepare to cease trading.This is nothing to do with COVID or market forces. We are actually just as busy as ever.However, our premises beside Darlington Railway Station are earmarked for development and are being compulsory purchased. The new, expanded Darlington Station will be right here, where we are. It’s sure to be wonderful advancement and a great asset to our town and we wish them well.However we will not be moving to new premises. Steve has decided to retire gracefully from the busy workshop life and with a heavy heart came to the decision to close Exhaust A FixIt’s time to make our last few exhausts and say goodbye.We would like to thank all of our customers for your support over so many years. Your custom is truly appreciated, Exhaust A Fix would never have become so busy without you all.

  •   I used this place from when it first opened and after a break of god only knows how many years, it's as good as it ever was. The manager/owner is a top bloke and couldn't be more helpful. The other chaps are also spot on. I wanted a better tail pipe on my BMW 320d and they did a cracking job. Wish I'd had it done ages ago. Please support this company. They'll do you proud!

      Booked car in for an inspection Friday at 2pm due to cracked back box and poor fitting exhaust on a car I'd just bought. Explained what I wanted to a detail.

Even cut the bumper which was burned so it looked perfect � highly recommend saved me a fortune �

  •   Exhaust-a-fix came very highly recommend, I was booked in for a estimate and repair, after waiting for 1hr 20 min and vehicle not even looked at I had to ask for keys back, being self employed this has cost me £60 + waiting time and travelling time for nothing ! I can't comment on quality or price of work, but as for service - poor

    thumb Ian Appleby

      Went in yesterday for an exhaust and was told it only needs a new clamp which cost me 20 pounds. Many a place would have just replaced my exhaust which didn't need doing and made a good few quid for the sake of it. I suppose what I am saying is that they are very honest and provide a very good service. I won't go anywhere else for exhaust. ...

    thumb Shaun Mahaffey

      Used these twice now....once for a custom exhaust on a mk2 golf turbo and me range rover..awsome service and work...

    thumb John Lawns

      Great friendly service will use again and would recommend
