Have you noticed a change in performance or response with your vehicle? Perhaps a dashboard warning light has flashed up, or you’ve heard strange sounds when changing gears? Visit Higgins Mechanics t/a MTS in Liphook for expert diagnostics, from a team of veteran engineers working at a fully equipped modern workshop. Just a short journey from areas including Bordon, Farnham, Haslemere and Petersfield, we’ll intervene to prevent any issue worsening and potentially compromising your vehicle.
Modern car diagnostics are typically undertaken using specialist tools that communicate with a car's on-board computer system. These tools can retrieve data from various sensors and systems within the car and interpret it to identify issues or faults. This can save a huge amount of time and expense over traditional, hands-on, “under-the-bonnet” car diagnostics. And these savings are passed on to our Bordon, Farnham, Liphook, Haslemere and Petersfield clients. But that’s not to say we can’t carry out diagnostics in the traditional way, when this approach is insufficient. Our mechanics are veterans and skilled in all forms of car diagnostics, and never afraid to get their hands dirty.
The most common diagnostic tool is called an ECU reader, which is a handheld device that can be plugged into a port usually located under the dashboard. The scanner retrieves fault codes stored in the car's on board computer memory and provides a diagnostic report to our technician. We’ve invested in advanced diagnostic tools which can perform in-depth testing of various systems, such as the engine, transmission, brakes, and suspension.
These tools provide real-time data and even simulate driving conditions to pinpoint the source of any issues that Bordon, Farnham, Liphook, Haslemere and Petersfield motorists have been experiencing. This technology has made car diagnostics more efficient, accurate, and reliable, allowing our technicians to quickly identify and fix problems with modern vehicles.
You may need to visit Higgins Mechanics t/a MTS for car diagnostics if you notice any warning signs or unusual behaviour from your car.

Visiting our garage for car diagnostics can help to quickly identify any problems or potential issues with your vehicle, allowing for prompt repairs or maintenance. It can also help to prevent further damage or costly repairs by catching problems early on.
That’s why we urge Bordon, Farnham, Liphook, Haslemere and Petersfield residents not to wait too long when they catch their vehicle acting up. It could be the difference between a quick, inexpensive intervention, or a hefty bill for significant repair work. Another reason why you might want to visit us for car diagnostics is if you plan to sell your car or trade it in.
