    "Do not get your car sent here
    Time wasters - They took 3 1/2 weeks to complete the insurance approval after almost daily phone calls
    Dodgy - Told us we needed a oil change despite the fact my car was serviced 3 weeks prior
    Poor workmanship - told us the car was fixed, went in and it wouldnt start. My girlfriend was late for work because they made her wait an hour to fix the problem
    Dodgy x2 - The ignition switch they replaced was faulty and I had to take take the car back again to have this fixed.

    Poor attitude - there is no one manning the office and the guys couldnt care less when you talk to them

    Overall this was a terrible experience that ended up costing me and my girlfriend alot of extra money on trains busses and ubering around waiting for the job which should have only taken a week to be done.

    I've seen alot of positive comments from people who have gone there for years but if you dont know the mechanics by name avoid this place at all costs.

    "We had a failed WOF with some work that was required to be done this was estimated to be $500-600. We then had to chase to find out what was going and were shocked to find out that further issues were found and yet there was no communication and approval to proceed , cost to be over $1000, after negotiation a small amount of discount applied ..very poor will not return"

    "**** poor really-Called a week before appointment explained I was pressed for time and needed a specific time they could look at it. Told to bring it in at 0830 and they would have it done by 1000. Collected car at 1500, paid for ECN test and some labor- Worker had no idea as to problem, recommended "changing filters and plugs" FFS - their NO BULL slogan should really just be BULL ****-come here if you want to throw some cash away..."

    "Starting issues.
    Car transported to Auto sparky mid day Friday. They were real busy with maybe 10 jobs ahead of me.
    The starter solenoid was faulty so Glen rebuilt that replacing contacts which would have been enough to complete the job. He added value to the job by machining the starter motor and replaced the brushes etc so I ended up with a complete very professional repair. Was called 4 pm Saturday that it was ready to be picked up. When it is busy these guys put in extra hours to get it done and that was much appreciated.

    My local garage recommended Glen at Newtown Auto Electrical and I am glad they took on the job.

    "We have been taking our cars to Newtown Auto Electrical for over 5 years and have consistently enjoyed prompt and affordable service. Our car is booked in within 1-2 days, and the guys have always managed same day pick-up/drop-off. If there is extra work to do, we get a phone call before they proceed and our bill never has surprises. The labour and parts are high quality with no follow up issues. We recently took our car in on a Saturday morning and Glenn diagnosed a failing battery, replaced it on the spot, disposed of our old one, gave us a discount on the battery and didn't charge for labour - all while we got a coffee next door. It doesn't get any better than this!"

    "TOURISTS, PLEASE, AVOID THIS WORKSHOP!! We were swindled by them. They had our campervan for 6 weeks and did barely anything. Robert charged us $250 for a battery he said it would cost about $160, charged us $180 for a speedo cable that we found out later on it did not exist. However, they said they had repair an inner part of the old cable and a workshop in Nelson quoted us $90 for making a whole cable! They did not answer our questions when we claimed and just said they would repair the cable if we got back there, knowing we were tourists, were already in the South Island and we could not make it back to Wellington. Some cables from the main battery had not been connected to the second battery, so we had to do it at our own risk. They did not even check our brakes, as requested. It is cool to make money without working, isn\'t it, guys"

    "I\'ve been going here for several years for WOF and annual oil/change, \'tune ups\'. They are personable, honest and reasonably priced. Over the years their work has been consistent. When things work well - that\'s great for me and it\'s just the usual flat fee. They\'re probably not the cheapest around but my WOF usually costs $45. They let me know when things need replacing prior to any repairs when it goes in for servicing so there are no nasty surprizes. They provide a really good service and therefore are really busy. So don\'t expect your car to be ready post WOF within 15mins. The only time I\'ve physically waited for it (usually I drop it off before work) - it took about an hour, I went for coffee and they called me when it was done. They\'re open saturdays which I\'ve always found useful. Thanks guys!"
