Dakar Cars have invested in the latest equipment in
Dealer level diagnostics from Autologic and Launch.
With this level of diagnostics ability we can now
extend our specialist skills to a wider range of
manufacturers, The Autologic Assist+ allows us to
carry out diagnostics, reprogram and re-code ECUs on
a whole new range of vehicles including BMW,
Citroen, Dacia, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes (inc.
Sprinter), Peugeot, Renault, Volkswagen, Audi, Seat,
Skoda and Volvo.
Dakar Cars was launched in 1991 to design and build
the Dakar 4x4 made famous by Anneka Rice in her
show, Challenge Anneka. In the following seven
years, the business has expanded to two locations
and offers MOT and services, diagnostics, tyres and
exhausts and a Parts Counter, where customers can
buy Land Rover parts.
The five-bay service and MOT workshops can cater for
any vehicle but specialises in all types of Land
Rovers. The CAT award tops an exciting few years for
the firm, which has grown rapidly since adding their
MOT bay in 2005.
In 2009 Dakar Cars were
voted Garage of the Year
Dartford and Bexley-based Dakar Cars
has won the prestigious 2009 Garage of the Year
title in the Car and Accessory Trader (CAT) Magazine
Awards. We also won Garage of the Year 2009
sponsored by Euro Car Parts.
the following years, we have continued to grow our
client database mainly through recommendations as we
are proud to say that we do not market ourselves. We
have continued to update our diagnostic equipment
and skills particularly with the newer Land Rover's
for Discovery 5 and Discovery Sports. We proudly
celebrated 25 years in the business and we continue
to look forward to the next 25 years. Although we
move forward and change in business we never forget
our roots. and we remain Independent Land Rover
We continue to
support AmD in their bid for the Championship at the
BTCC racing, and wish Rory Butcher continued success
in the 2019 Championships.
