    "My dad (living with me) got a quote for a simple muffler repair and it was high, they told him it was just inflated (over $600!) to make sure they didn't get a surprise at the end. When he went to pick it up they tried to charge him over another $200!!! told him they had been working on it all day and had to bend pipes. its his campervan so he was walking around the place all day and knew this was not true. not only lying but ripping off pensioners. They sounded so kind and helpful on the phone. Could not believe anyone behaves like this. Use at your own risk. Shared on Neighbourly and had so many similar experiences of bullying and overcharging sent back to me!"

    "From start to finish this was a nightmare. They were asked to look at a problem with overheating and also a leak from the water pump area.. they promptly found a couple of issues and advised the repairs would be around $1000.. i winced a little but thought id just get it sorted.. i had to advance them $500 to buy parts which i thought was a little odd but understand they have cash flow problems. I got a bill for 1500 odd dollars in the end and although i was furious with the deception i paid and left cursing myself that i didnt listen to the warnings i got about this business. My first drive the car overheated exactly as it had befor being taken to them! On returning the car they said they would sort it.. 2 days later they tell me the radiator is stuffed and they need to get a new one! $600!!!! I asked how it was that the radiator had been flushed according to the invoice i originally had and this wasnt discovered? The radiator specialist they outsource to normally actually told me there is no way that radiator could have been flushed without the blockage (85% blocked) being obvious.. the original invoice was not a reflection of the work done.. i had been absolutely scammed. They refused to release the car untill i paid the 600 and whats more even after being specifically asked not to put the car through a warrant check they did. They then loaded suspension as a fail and fully expected to do the suspension for me lol

    Im staggered by the fact that they still have customers and even more that some seem happy. The thing is though that for most they are trusting and think the work has been done.. i shudder to think what lurks in your engine bays that you dont know about....yet

    "Really bad service. Made appointment for LPG warrant of fitness only to get there and be told they couldn't do it. Didn't call us to cancel and when I spoke to them they said the inspector had to leave because blocked drain at home and they didn't check the roster. Won't be gong back there and the guy hung up on me when I was asking why they couldn't have done it. Rude and arrogant."

    "I took my car in for investigation/repair of the airconditioning system and asked the receptionist to make sure they called me with a cost before they started work on the repair as I expected it would be expensive.
    The garage charged 4178 for finding where the fault is and estimated $2000 for the repair. I took my car to another garage. They found the fault in 10 minutes while I waited at no charge. I feel I have been badly overcharged by Orewa Car services. I made a complain and they wrote to apologise for any misunderstanding but made no offer to reduce the charge. I wrote back saying the next garage i went to located the fault for no charge in 10 mins but they have not replied.

    "I would not hesitate in recommending Jason and his team at Orewa Car Services. They went well beyond expectations in solving a fairly complex ABS/ASC problem with my vehicle. Communication throughout the process was clear and constant and the overall service I received was excellent. I can\'t thank you guys enough! Cheers."

    "Came in after dealing with 2 other garages that couldn\'t diagnose my car and was very satisfied with their quality and service.
    Courtesy car had been organised, i was contacted before extra work needed carrying out and my car was ready on time as promised. Great job and very nice workmanship.

    "My car was overheating and I took it to Orewa Car Services. I was really happy with how quickly they fixed the problem and kept me informed of the price the whole way. I was from out of town and they sent a mechanic to pick-up my part so my car could be turned around in the same day. I highly recommend them. Thanks guys."

    "I took my VW to them after they told me they where experts in VW especially electronics and charging systems.
    I told them the car was over charging and that the voltage regulator needed looking at. All they did was charge me $182 to reset the computer. Less than an hours work, The day I picked the car up it broke own again on the motorway. With exactly the same issue. I then took the car to another repaired and they found the issue with the voltage regulator and fixed it correctly.
    Orewa Car services are a rip off, and incompetent. There neglect has not only cost me to have the car repaired twice but a new battery also.

    NEVER USE Orewa Car Sercices!!!
