    "This business is run by complete rip-off artists. I took my car in for a warrant and to get two tyres fitted which were pre-ordered and ready to be put on, on the day. I paid for the warrant, the tyres and the fit in full at a price of $345. However, after the fact, I learned that the tyres and the fit had been quoted and ordered at $115 each. The mechanic took advantage of my ignorance of this fact, seeing an opportunity to exploit a young woman who admittedly does not have much knowledge of these things. Then to blatantly deny that such a quote was never made, when the person who ordered then rang up repeatedly trying to pay for them over the phone only to be told they were too busy, shows a high level of dishonesty and lack of professionalism. I was disgusted by this business."

    "I am new to the area so thought i would give upland motors a go. took my car there for a simple wof. They failed it on many things that were ridiculous reasons for rejection. I also handed them a oil filter and bottle of oil and asked if they could quickly give an oil change while on the hoist and nothing else . Changing the oil is at the most a 10 min job ( unscrewing oil filter , talking out bung from the oil sump ,draining oil and pouring new oil back in ) I was charged $89.70 ( 1 hours work ) I would have done it myself it was going to cost more than $20 extra !! I told them that's crazy charging that much but they wouldn't have a bar of it , so i paid and left. I Took my car straight to the mechanic i usually use, he looked at the reasons for rejection and crossed most of them off and said it was a load of crap what they had written. Seems upland motors do what a lot of mechanics do and try and generate more work.

    Do not use these people . Marcus motors in the city are the best people for any car repairs. Do not go anywhere else. ( i only went to upland motors because i moved into the area and it was closer )

    "Have been going to this workshop for the last couple of years and I am really pleased with the way they conduct themselves; always making sure I am notified before any work is carried out and if there are options to choose from they discuss these with me. The mechanics working here are all qualified 'A Grade' mechanics (according to the service reminder letter I received), which gives me peace of mind."

    "All went well until I realized that they had literally put a tube back onto my power steering pump which would have taken all of 3/4 hour max. but was charged for 2 hours labor at $76 an hour. That is blatantly being ripped off. What a shame because I\'m new in the area and thought I had a decent mechanic close by. Big mistake, will not return again!"

    "The job was completely misdiagnosed. Part of the problem was the thermostat which was replaced by Steve and his team. Unfortunately the thermostat was the "wrong" type and this has been verified by two other mechanics. To verify this further the number of the thermostat was checked with a rover specialist. After speaking to Steve on the phone about this he said it wouldn't make any difference which is a blatant lie. I didn't ask for a refund but will tell 20 other people about it. "

    "Told my son to f!# off when he expressed dissatisfaction with work done on his car (I was listening he was firm but respectful). BIG MISTAKE as we used to take 3 cars in there. Never again."
