    "Sent my car in for a service and minor repairs. The job had been previously quoted by my dealership. I saved a fortune by sending my car to Ray Hartley Motors. Great communicators and a pleasure to deal with. They went out of their way to accomodate my time frames. Highly recommended." – 25th Apr, 2013 More details…

    "Had an issue with aftermarket brake pads on my subaru. My subaru didn\'t like the pads installed at a service Brought my wagon back in and Ray agreed to sort it after minimal discussion Just like that, Not a bother. Have had execellent service over the last 4-5 years. Great to deal with, recommended." – 8th Jun, 2012 More details…

    "Got a WoF & service done. No complaints. Price seemed a little high, but not too bad. Dave called to check before proceeding with repairs required, once he could give me an idea of price." – 1st Jan, 2012 More details…

    "I have been using Ray for a few years now, he was the only person that could manage to fix the problems with my classic vehicle. When i took in my newer vehicle he found problems that wern\'t picked up in a previous warrant check that were missed by VTNZ. As these were safety hazards they were fixed with no problems and without being charged the world. Give theses guys a budget and they will do their best and ring you with updates if the work costs more." – 12th Dec, 2011 More details…

    "Ray has saved me thousands over the years, and he stopped me from being ripped off by a warranty company and a dealership which were hell bent on screwing me beacuse the vehical was a Range Rover (not current Rover dealership). I find Ray to be thorough, concentious, fair & realist in dealing with my toys and work hourses alike... I hate spending too much and I know there are coboys out there but Ray Hartley Motors is NOT one of them... go Ray & keep up the good work... Ian" – 8th Dec, 2011 More details…

    "I have been taking my car to Ray Hartley Motors for the last 11 years and I have never had a problem. Their quotes are accurate (I did checked arround in the early years), they communicated with me as an intelligent woman and did not talk down to me as many garages had done, and also gave me warning of any issues that were coming due so I had a chance to budget for them. I highly recommend Ray and his team." – 7th Dec, 2011 More details…

    "Got off to a good start with Ray. Ray had just purchased McLennans Motors where I used to take my car. He said he would honour a quote from McLennans for a cam belt replacement. He also recommended I get the radiator flushed at same time as would not take much longer considering they were tinkering with cam belt. So felt good that my car was in trustworthy hands. However, from that point on, I was disappointed. 1. I was told my car would be fixed and ready by the end of the day, however…" – 21st Nov, 2011 More details…

    "These guys ARE Cowboys ! I am amazed to find them on this website. I booked mycar in for a service and WOF. When I booked in I advised that the power steering and auto trans levels were low.They told me \"don\'t worry this was part of the service.\" This morning i have checked them and found them still to be below the required level. God only know what else has or hasn\'t been done " – 18th Oct, 2011 More details…

    "I\'d highly recommend these guys - they seem passionate about what they do and perform a superb job at a reasonable price. My car always runs well after a service and when I\'ve had mechanical problems they\'ve been fantastic at sorting them in a timely fashion - even on short notice. " – 31st May, 2011 More details…

    "I didn't book my car in, but they managed to fit me in that afternoon. Changed the fluids as I asked for and even pointed out a few things that may need attention in the future that I hadn't noticed. Very happy with the service and will take my car there again in the future." – 31st Jan, 2011 More details…

    "Firstly, I know nothing about cars. I used this business for the first time and just wanted a WOF and service done. I was told the main belt was splitting and had to be replaced due to WOF rules. I authorised replacement, paid the $400 bill and picked up the car. The very next day I heard a distinctive noise coming from the new belt so took the car back. They worked on the car all day, rung to say they had to replace the \"tensioner\", and while doing that they noticed the…" – 23rd Sep, 2010 More details…

    "Excellent service - drop car in for warrent, service and for a couple of minor things to be fixed. Ray (I think) talked through what might need to be done and why. Very friendly and a clear communicator. At pick up there were no surprises on the work or the bill. Maybe not the cheapest, but still good value and an excellent service and convienent location as well. Will take our car back there for next service. " – 17th Jan, 2010 More details…

    "Great communication - open, friendly and honest. Right from the start it was made clear that I would be contacted first if the repairs would cost more than expected. I wasn't made to feel like a stupid woman, and really appreciated this. Will definitely be using them in future." – 30th Nov, 2009 More details…

    "These people are the best mechanics that i have ever used, they always get the car done when they say, the car always runs better when i get it back and has had all the work done properly. I have and old v8 and have told them that i dont want the car fixed, i want it made better and every time something breakes, i get a phone call with a price to make the problem go away and make the part better. When i was buying my last car Ray even organised someone in hamilton to do a pre inspection report…" – 31st Dec, 2006 More details…
