  • Service Department - In the previous year (December 2016), the orange emissions (engine) warning came on within weeks of service. I rang Volvo Service who said it was not critical and not covered by Volvo Service and to contact the garage. I rang the garage who said that it would cost >GBP 100 to investigate, but it was probably not critical. I decided to drive with the problem. It disappeared in April 2017, possibly due to automatic diesel filter cleaning (??). This year (november 2017), the same orange (engine) emissions warning has come on 3 days after the service. I will wait to see if it disappears. This should not happen or be free of charge to fix!!! Come on Volvo. Mr Wilson, 04/12/2017

  • Service Department - As experienced regularly over the last 20 years or more, I continue to enjoy the excellent and efficient first class service which is always provided by John Darke. The fact that I now live 30 miles away from the garage but still continue to use them must speak volumes for the trust and appreciation of this Company. Mr Woodward, 04/12/2017

  • Service Department - Thank you for the excelent treatment I received yesterday whilst my Volvo V40 cross country was in for its annual service. - I could not fault the reception I received, the customer waiting facilities including the cups of coffee, service progess updates and the hard copy diagnostic reports received. All done in a timely manner in order for me to enjoy the rest of my day. Please thank your staff on my behalf for their professional approach to their work which is much appreciated. Kind regards, Colin. Colin Kirman, 28/11/2017

  • Service Department - Staff member was polite and clear. Although the service came with a hand car wash, the spots on the inside of the doors was missed. The process of checking car in and collecting it was pretty quick although the service itself took longer than estimated. But I didn't mind. Miss Alison King, 22/11/2017

  • Service Department - Not sure that the correct amount of oil was put in engine as the level shown on screen was less than when I brought the car in. I was told the correct amount had been added but this does not seem right that the gauge should be showing such a low reading ie. 2/3rds. on the previous survey the gauge was showing full. I have since done 1500 miles and it showing less than half. Mr John Richards, 08/11/2017
