Gotherington cross garage
Independent Landrover specialists
Welcome to GX Landrovers at Gotherington Cross Garage near Cheltenham.
Here at GX landrovers we have a team of landrover specialist mechanics with over 15 years experience of landrover repairs, MOT and servicing. We use the latest and most up-to-date diagnostic equipment to allow us to look at your landrover, repairing the vehicle as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
MOT testing is required by law on all vehicles in the UK that are 3 years old or more. The annual inspection follows strict criteria set out by the DVSA that determines if your Land rover is fit for purpose and in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test covers a broad range of vehicle safety checks including lights, tyres, seatbelts and emissions and can only be carried out by an MOT garage with DVSA-approved examiners.
Here at GX Landrovers we have the facilities to carry out mot tests on all Land Rover models.
During the MOT test the MOT tester, will conduct a comprehensive inspection to ensure your Land Rover is in roadworthy condition. However, it is not the same as having your Land Rover serviced and the MOT test does not check the general mechanical condition of the vehicle. Also, the assessment is based on the condition of the vehicle on the day.
If your Land Rover passes, the nominated tester will separately list and inform you of any ‘advisory’ or ‘minor’ items that will require attention in the near future so you can keep an eye on them.
However, if your Land Rover fails its mot we will call you with a detailed quote explaining the failures and what work is required to get it to pass the mot.
An mot test takes 45 minutes – 1 hr, we have a customer friendly waiting room where you can wait for your mot to be completed or you can drop your Land Rover with us and take one of our free courtesy vehicles so you can get on with your day. (Please note GX courtesy vehicles must be booked in advance)
Once we have carried out an mot test on your Land Rover we will automatically add you to our text reminder system free of change and remind you a month before its due the following year.
If your unsure when your mot and you can’t find your mot certificate please call us and we can find this information out for you.

Our satisfied customers
I looked for local Landrover specialists and found Gotherington Cross garage. From the first contact I was impressed by the depth of knowledge of the young lady on the service desk. She called me back within hours with the answers to my varied questions. I duly booked in my Defender for a full service. Everything went smoothly, I was amazed at how well the Defender drove after the service. I have used them again since and have been equally impressed.
I was really impressed with the land rover specialists at GX Landrovers, I felt they really cared about me as a person and my land rover. As a land rover owner I would highly recommend them to other land rover owners.
LAND ROVER AIRCON
Here at GX Landrovers we have the most up to date aircon equipment that means our highly experienced and qualified mechanics are able to carry out air con regassing on all Land Rover makes and models.
How it works – First we carry out a leak test and unlike other garages here at GX Landrovers we add a complementary ultraviolet dye to the aircon gas which will enable us to trace any hidden leaks on your aircon system before regassing. Once the leak test is successfully completed the mechanic will then regas the aircon system to its full capacity. Once regassed we will test the aircon system to ensure your aircon is running to its best ability.
If in the unfortunate event that a part within the aircon system is faulty, we are able to diagnose the problem and provide a quote to repair.
LAND ROVER TYRES & WHEEL ALIGNMENT
Your tyres are essential for safe driving; they are the only link between your vehicle and the road. Tyres have 4 important functions: To provide grip for braking and acceleration and to maintain steering and directional control.
Here at GX we can supply and fit all makes of tyres to all vehicle makes and models. There are lots of choices when it comes to choosing tyres, we are happy to advise you on the best makes and models to suit your budget.
As well as fitting and balancing tyres here at GX we are also able to carry out Wheel alignment.
The wheel alignment of your car has a big impact on the lifespan of your tyres. Bad alignment can cause your tyres to lean into one another which will cause abnormal wear to the tread. Your car will also have to work much harder than normal, which can lead to burning more fuel, damaging your suspension and hampering your steering.
We carry out 2 different types of wheel alignment:
2 wheel alignment also known as tracking this is ideally suited to most vehicle makes and models. 2 wheel alignment is normally carried out when new tyres are fitted but can also need to be carried out when replacing certain suspension parts.
4 Wheel alignment ideally suited for Land rover vehicles and vehicles fitted with adjustable rear suspension. 4 wheel alignment is normally carried out when new tyres are fitted but can also again similar to 2 wheel alignment need to be carried out when replacing certain suspension parts on 4x4s and vehicles with adjustable suspension.
When carrying out 4 wheel alignment,sometimes we can come across seized suspension such as track rod end & Inner rack knuckles. In the unfortunate event of this happening on your vehicle rest assured we have the facilities and latest equipment here at GX to unseize any components at fault.
Here at GX Land Rovers we have all the necessary welding equipment for our highly experienced technicians to be able to carry out welding repairs all Land Rover models. Common Welding repairs carried out on Land Rover vehicles here at GX Landrovers:

Diagnostics & key coding
When car warning lights illuminate on your dashboard, an engine diagnostics check can help identify the problem before more serious damage occurs.
Most modern Land Rovers today contain an on-board computer known as an Engine Control Unit (ECU) which continually monitors the performance of the vehicle. Sensors all around the vehicle report back to the ECU if there are problems such as low fluid levels or increased engine temperature. When an issue is identified the ECU generates an error code. The relevant dashboard warning lights will then be displayed.
There are literally hundreds of potential error codes that can only be read by a Land rover specialist vehicle diagnostic equipment. While a warning light may display on the dashboard alerting you to an issue, a diagnostics check is required to understand the full extent and cause of the problem.
At GX Land rovers we use the most up to date Land Rover diagnostics kit which can read the engine fault codes in your vehicle’s ECU’s memory. Our fully-trained technicians can then suggest any necessary repairs to get you back on the road and rectify the error so there’s no need to pay vehicle dealership prices for your diagnostics check next time a dashboard warning light appears in your car.
Here at GX we have the latest Land Rover key programming kit enabling us to code all Land Rover keys
