At last an english speaking mechanic inland who knows how to fix cars. well done and thanks. Highly recommended.
William Smyth, Monda (Land Rover Discovery).
After 2 mechanics failed attempts to fix my Renault Clio, and nearly €420 wasted, I saw an advert for Kane’s garage. Alan Kane fixed it while I watched and charged less than €100.
Thank you for a great service. Bill Prendergast, Coin, Spain.

Alan hails from an ever-diminishing minority of true diagnostic auto mechanics. A pure emphasis on fault finding rather that costly component replacement 
demonstrates his years of experience and focus in proper problem solving without guess-work. An honest and straight-talking mechanical wizard!

I contacted Alan after several failed attempts from my local dealership to resolve an unusual and intermittent power loss issue. After listening to my explanation of the problem, 
Alan asked me if the car (a D4D diesel) had ever had petrol in it, which it had. Alan ran his tests and armed with the results and diagnosis I was able to get the car repaired properly.
I would recommend Alan without hesitation, he was very approachable and accommodating and most importantly, very accurate with his diagnosis.

As one of the founding members of the Irish Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club, and as an acting Club Official, I regularly get asked to recommend someone to help sort out various 

niggles that members have with their cars. I can faithfully recommend Alan to members and friends alike, both in Ireland and in Spain, and have always received positive feedback 

from folk who have used Kane Automotive. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kane Automotive to anybody who is having car trouble, and Alan has been included in our 

Club's "Good Garage Guide" for many years. Regards, Ben Cosgrave - The Mercedes-Benz Club "

I was having severe difficulties with the electronic fuel injection system in a complex project car which many auto-electricians tried and failed to diagnose.

A friend recommended Alan Kane, and within a few hours he had found the problem, what turned out to be a simple intermittent break in the wiring loom.

Brilliant, expert, informative service, at a very, very competitive price.
