About Hughes Autos


Hughes Autos are are located in Dundrod, close to the Nutts Corner roundabout.

We are an independent Nissan repair, service, and diagnostic centre. We use dealer level diagnostic equipment (our workshop is equipped with the latest Nissan Consult III Plus diagnostic machine which diagnoses all Nissan models) so we can do just the same as the dealer, but at a more cost-effective price. We have also invested in the very latest Nissan consult diagnostic for R35 GT-R up to the very latest model.

Fixed Price Servicing

Rock high performance antifreeze is a superior mono ethelyne glycol based formula offering exceptional performance and protection for all types of petrol and diesel engines.

Brake Fluid Change
Our brake fluid is a high-performance, synthetic fluid which exceeds almost all requirements of various brake fluid specifications.

Oil Changes
 In order to keep your Nissan running at full tilt all year round, you’ll need to change your oil and we offer a full oil changing service here at Hughes Autos.

MOT Prep

At our Car MOT Test Centre, we’ll perform all of the necessary preparations for your MOT.

In order for the examiner to perform the MOT, the car needs to be in full working order and the interior and underside of the car need to be adequately clean or the inspector reserves the right to refuse to examine the vehicle.

However, at Hughes Autos, we can make sure that your car is in the perfect condition, ready for your MOT inspection, as well as performing any work that would be required to ensure that your vehicle passes its MOT.
