Click Here for our COVID-19 Statement : Dear Customer I hope that you, our much-valued customers, are keeping safe as we face what is, without doubt, a global crisis that is unprecedented in modern times. We have kept all our premises open and fully functioning as long as possible, and we would love nothing more than to be able to continue to operate normally. However we do not live in ‘normal’ times at present, and after a careful assessment of all our options involving trade and retail customers alike, as well as our employees and suppliers, we feel that we must do the right thing for the greater good. In order to protect our people and help limit the deadly spread of the COVID-19 virus, and following the Prime Minister’s speech on Monday evening, we have decided to temporarily close our car sales with immediate effect but our service and repair facility will remain open until close of business on Friday 27th March after which this will also shut in line with the Government recommendation. We have not taken such a decision lightly, but we do believe that in emergency situations, we need to do our bit as individuals and as a company to protect each other. We remain committed to our customers and to our employees, but our commitment extends far further than purely economic arrangements. The health and welfare of our customers, work colleagues and suppliers are fundamental factors in all our decision-making and your protection remains our highest priority. As this is a rapidly changing situation, we don’t know for how long our branches will be closed. However, we will continue to follow the advice of our Government as well as Public Health England.. We will update you further when more information becomes available. In the meantime, take care of yourselves, your loved ones, your colleagues and your communities, and we look forward to seeing you all back when the time is right. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Ashington Automobile Company.

Diagnostics

At Ashington Automobile Co. we can cure most types of diagnostics on your car.

All cars are now fitted with computers and a myriad of technology to run and monitor the internal workings of the vehicle. One of the most important functions these computers provide is ensuring your car is operating within the manufacturers parameters; the engine, safety systems (ABS, Anti-Slip etc. etc.) are all operating correctly and safely. Most people usually only become aware of the functions of these computers when one of the fault warning indicators illuminates on the dashboard.
