Brakes aren’t just for stopping: they’re essential for an abrupt stop for hazards. And when your brakes aren’t effective, the risk of accidents spikes. In fact, brake-related problems are responsible for 22% of all car crashes.

If your brakes aren’t responsive or produce unusual sounds, we advise you book in immediately for a full brake service in Littlehampton.

The suspension system is viewed by most drivers as protection for ourselves against uncomfortable bumps and dips when driving. However, the suspension is an intricate system which provides handling and steering stability, as it creates friction between the tyres and the road.

If the steering feels off, contact us for a review of your suspension and wheel alignment as soon as possible.

A flat battery is enough to ruin anyone’s day – don’t let one ruin yours.

If your battery power is dropping, there’s likely an underlying engine fault or a short circuit causing the drain.

Book in now for a swift battery service in Littlehampton.


Sensations such as ‘grinding’ or ‘crunching’ are a common clutch problem – and not always the result of missing a gear.

When these sounds happen, it can be costly to fix if not caught early.

Contact us today for more information about a car clutch service in Littlehampton. 

Gearbox Repairs

When your gearbox isn’t working, your car struggles to convert energy from the battery and power your car.

If you’re repeatedly missing a gear, it could be a failure in the gearbox components.

If you hear whirring, feel shaking, or smell burning, contact Bennetts for the best gearbox car repairs in Littlehampton. 


Exhausts are prone to rust and misplacement, especially in bad weather and on rougher terrain. This impacts your acceleration and causes leaks – and even increases the emissions your vehicle releases.

If left to deteriorate, the price of a fix can escalate quickly. Don’t delay – contact us now to book your exhaust service in Littlehampton.

Problems with a single headlight are usually caused by the bulb alone.

But, if both headlights or your internal lights are failing, it could be a circuit fault or something more severe, like corrosion. Contact us today for a full lighting service with Bennett Auto car repairs Littlehampton. 

Car repairs Littlehampton


A diesel particulate filter (DPF) is responsible for collecting soot, created when diesel is burned in your car engine.

This prevents harmful particles being pumped out into the atmosphere and is a big factor in passing the emissions part of your MOT. Using diagnostics, we can service all DPF models quickly and efficiently.

LPG Servicing, Repairs & Installations

LPG stands for ‘liquefied petroleum gas’, and is used to fuel a large variety of vehicles, popular for its ability to produce lower emissions. However, uptake is relatively low compared to that of diesel and even electric vehicles.

If your car runs on LPG or you’re considering converting, you need a specialist, bespoke service – and Bennetts offers the best expertise for LPG car repairs and service in Littlehampton.

    Bennett Autos have recently replaced the cam belts on both my Skoda Citigo and VW Up . The service provided was both friendly and excellent on both occasions and their prices were so much more competitive than those offered by the main dealers where you end up paying for all the "glitz and glamour" of the showrooms that you don't want. The job is identical and when you consider that they... Read More
