Our early 90's Subaru failed a WOF (from somewhere else) so we took it to the Car Clinic with what we were told was a leaking power steering system. They took a look at it right away and suggested that we just clean the area and return to the WOF place. They were right - we failed because the pump was dirty and the fluid was low, not because anything was actually leaking. Many mechanics would have been happy to replace a part or two, but… instead we got a free diagnosis and some good free advice - in and out in 10 minutes. We aren't from NZ and are new to the WOF system, so maybe this is a common occurrence but it's definitely not what we're used to.A week or two later the car started having some stuttering / hesitation problems when accelerating. We took it back to these guys thinking it was a case of dirty fuel injectors, bad spark plugs or any number of other potential problems. He took a look at it right away and we were out the door 10 minutes later with a fixed car - again, free of charge. Apparently we got some water in the spark plugs and after checking things out for 5 minutes he just gave them a good blow with the air compressor.I don't expect every trip to these guys will result in our car being fixed for free, but it's a relief to have a mechanic that you can take your car to without worrying about being ripped off (especially when you are car-ignorant foreigners).Can't recommend them highly enough.
The service was friendly and work excellent. We took our car in for a WOF knowing it would need a little work, and everything was completed to a high standard with a quick turn around.
They where brilliant at explaining what had been done to the car and what needed doing without adding pressure (or a huge bill) to get it done like other Mechanics I have used in the past.
I… felt that they offered amazing value for money and nothing was too much trouble for them.I would highly recommend them to anyone and will certainly be going back my self in the future,Finally our old car now is a dream to drive!
Marcus does an excellent job
