MOT, Service, Diagnostics and Repairs

DiscoveryFreelanderDefender | Range Rover

Repairing & Servicing Land Rovers for over 20 Years. MPB 4×4 offer fixed price servicing for all Land Rovers at a very reasonable price. We work on all models of Land Rover and Range Rover from 1948 right up to the latest Discovery and Range Rover models of today.

We are fully equipped with Dealer Level Diagnostics using Jaguar Land Rover’s SDD and Pathfinder enabling us to work on the very latest models.

Garages or even specialists without JLR Pathfinder will not even be able to reset the service indicator on post 2017 models never mind fault code read or programming. MPB 4×4 have invested in the correct equipment to make sure we can.


If your vehicle is still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty we would recommend that you have it serviced in line with the manufacturer’s specified service. Provided your vehicle is serviced and maintained in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer’s instructions during the manufacturer’s warranty period, you have the right to have the work undertaken by an independent garage without affecting your warranty. MPB 4×4 will ensure your vehicle is serviced in accordance with their instructions and your warranty will remain valid as we use genuine manufacturer’s parts and the correct oils and fluids. All work is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s schedule, to the same specification as a main dealer. With the very latest in Autologic & Pathfinder diagnostics equipment and Land Rover trained Technicians on hand we are well placed to keep you on the road. We are approved by Land Rover to update online service history on the latest models and we are also an approved Land Rover Used Vehicle Warranty Repairer.


Very few of the larger Land Rover dealers and specialists are interested in working on vehicles more than a few years old – but these older vehicles are as important to us as any other Land Rover, so you can be assured that we will do the job properly and not rush it. Bring us your brand new Range Rover or beloved Discovery or Freelander or hard-worked Defender and we will treat it with as much respect and attention to detail as you would expect from any main dealer, except we will be at least half the price.

If your vehicle exceeds the stated service intervals, or if you need any advice on which service is required, please contact us for a quote.
