    "Ive been a customer of this family business for more than ten years and i have absolutely no conplaints. Robs kindness to both myself and my family has seen us able to do things we would otherwise not have been able to do. Without this business caring for usand keeping our vehicles on the road we would not be where we are today. Awesome work ethic, and always completes jobs within the specified time frame and to a hugh standard. These guys are not cowboys and they definitely charge at a fair rate. Many thanksfor the work you have done on my car over the years."

    "I took my ute to these guys to have the motor replaced. It\'s an old (80\'s) car, and from personal experience I know it\'s not a terribly challenging job for a good mechanic.
    I was given two different quotes in the space of a fortnight, the second higher than the first by about $300, but still within what I wanted to spend. I was given a timeframe. I agreed and delivered the vehicle and motor I had sourced to them. They took two weeks to do what I was told would be a one week job, not a killer, and understandable as sometimes little things can slow the game down. Eventually the vehicle was returned and I made a short drive with the vehicle, paid the money and went home to park up the car. It\'s a second vehicle; i work in town so bus to work, so don\'t drive it often.

    I did get around to putting some miles on it, and found that it increasingly wouldn\'t idle. I opened the bonnet for some preliminary checks to see if it was an obvious problem but nothing appeared. I called them and asked for it to be looked at; I live 300 metres down the road. Someone was sent down and I was told it was probably because it was LPG and I should start it on petrol. Something that had never been an issue previously as it was properly tuned. I was also told that they aren\'t really s\'posed to work on LPG as you need to be certified. So they\'d done the job illegally

    A few days later I drove the car and the problem wasn\'t resolved, so I had a more extensive look myself to find that the air cleaner wasn\'t attached to the (LPG) system, depressurising it and making the car stall. I also noticed that the thermostat housing was leaking. I told them i left the vehicle at home and where to find a key they could fix it when it suited them; leaving it up to them to remedy their ****-ups. They\'ve never done so.

    A month or so later I decided to fix the rocker cover gasket which had been leaking. I went to undo the cover and found that the bolts were in fact only finger-tight, which is why the problem had emerged as they worked loose. Guess who left them like that Also, the gasket was sealed with some form of non-set gunk, clearly not a suitable gasket-goo.

    Shameful, sloppy workmanship, lacksadaisical service, slack all around.
