    "I always take our cars here for WOFs and minor repairs (brake jobs etc) and have always found them reasonably priced, fast and pleasant to deal with. What's not to like."

    "I had used high profile mechanic repair auto shops in Ponsonby when first moving to Auckland in 1998, buying their products and expensive book coupons that was supposed to save you money as long as you used it for specific mechanic repairs which was ongoing and kept you somewhat obligated to their service.I would drive to Otara and buy brand new tyres almost yearly as my car was used by family who came for holidays from overseas, my car would take them around NZ, I have been disappointed on two occasions when my family using my car would have to buy a tyre or get something fixed as I had spent money prior to them picking up my car to ensure it was 100% roadworthy. (The family were happy to pay for the repairs but that wasn't the point?) My parents both passed in 2010, (89 & 96yrs) I have their 1990 Nissan Sunny. My son recommended Farhard to service my cars, that was around 2010 and I have been using his mechanical services now since then. Farhad has always been upfront with me when repairing my cars, no hidden agendas and repairs at affordable prices. I bought a 4WD Toyota Fielder three years ago and I took the car to Otara again, replaced the tyres with new ones and brand new mags. My husband and I moved to Wellsford two years ago, and you guessed it, I continue to call Farhad to service both of my cars, don't get me wrong, the auto repair shops in Wellsford come with glowing recommendations from new found friends up here and from Farhad, but I love the customer service and the care taken in maintaining my cars that Farhad and his team provide. Oh, watch this space as I have bought brand new tyres from Farhad and I will keep you updated on how they go?

    My husband and I work hard for our money, I don't have money 'to burn' if that's what some of you may think as you read this? So, my recommendations come from seven years of experience of workmanship on my cars, not one off visits, but seven years of satisfaction knowing my money, cost in petrol and time spent in getting to Glenfield is well spent at Farhads Auto Crown shop.

    "Farhad and his team are skilled and knowledgeable on old and new cars. They are always helpful, trustworthy, and easy to communicate with. Their quotes seem reasonable and fair. In all the best mechanics I have ever found."

    "Farhad and his team have been looking after our cars for over 5 years now and we have found him excellent. He always goes the extra mile and is really pleasant and helpful to deal with. We have a a variety of vehicles from classics, trucks and cars, old and late model and he can work on them all skilfully. His pricing is always fair if not below normal market rate. I would and have recommend him. They are all a pleasure to deal with."

    "If things go bad with your repair don't expect these guys to do the right thing by you. I had a problem with my drivers window that I had repaired early last year. I was told by Farhad had that I needed to replace the drivers door shell to have the window fixed properly. They replaced the regulator and I got a new door shell for them. A few weeks later the window wasn't working again. I took it back and he fixed it again. Another few weeks later the window wasn't working again. I didn't use the window for a couple of months because I couldn't keep taking my car in to fix. Eventually I took it in for WOF and was advised the left front shock absorber was leaking and needed replacing. So I asked him to fix the window again. This time they pryed a gap in the doorshell. You could put your thumb down the hole between the window and door frame and you could the edges of the door trim from outside the car. One week later window not going again. I e-mailed Farhad asking for a refund, he ignored the e-mail. I saw him in person at the workshop, he pretended that he did not receive the e-mail, then slipped out information he would only have known if he had read the e-mail. As our argument was going on he didn't agree to a refund and wanted me to leave the car with him again. A customer came and Farhad asked for my phone number and said he'd call me about it. Never got a call. 2 months later the shock absorber that they'd found was leaking and replaced to pass my wof was once again leaking according to another mechanic - more that $500 out of pocket due to these guys. Don't trust them!"

    "Crap, crap, Crap....Stay well away from these guys! My daughter took her car in for a WOF in April 2013 to this crowd. Crown found one of her indicators needed attention and the right rear wheel bearings needed replacing in order to be issued with a current WOF. She left her car to be fixed with them over the weekend for the two jobs to be done and an oil change. It Cost her $400. And she was issued with a current Wof..... I recently (Oct) took her car for the 6monthly WOF inspection to the Waitakere Testing Station and it failed with the same two machanical jobs .... the same indicator and the right rear bearings. I went to see Crown about these issues and found them very unhelpful, very rude and very intimidating and because I only had a receipt for the Wof and no receipt for the indicator and bearings, the Manager Fahad told me they had no record of them doing the bearings but they did have a record of her car having an oil change... even though her car had been in their shop for the whole weekend. and she had paid them for the bearings job and they had issued her car a passed WOF!!.... I then took it to an MTA registered Motor Machanic in Moselle Ave, Henderson, - and had all the machanical repairs required at a reasonable price and the invoices were easy to read with a detailed description of the labour, parts, services and GST......He also told me that the Bearings that he had replaced had been packed with Grease.... Crown had not replaced the bearings at all but had only packed the bearings with grease.... ...I'm now wondering if Crown had even changed the oil or replaced the indicator bulb. This Crown crowd should be avoided!!"

    "My husband and I use Farhad and his team for all our WOF\'s and mechanical repairs. They are trustworthy, friendly and reliable. When they needed to do some work on my car that required them to keep it longer than expected, they lent me a replacement car. I would totally recommend them. "
