  1. I’ve been taking my car to Ultra Tune in Crows Nest for the past 4 years and only have good things to say about them. I’ve never felt ripped off or cheated like I have with other mechanics in the past.

  2. C.A.T.S which is located at 15/17-21 Mentmore Avenue, Rosebery NSW 2018 (02) 9662 1458
    The people there are friendly, reliable, honest and efficient. They never overcharge and never treat you like you’re stupid (which for a woman with no car knowledge is really refreshing!)

  3. Paul Stewart Auto, found at 120-122 Birriga Rd Bellevue Hill is one of the finest shops in the eastern suburbs. The tech’s there are no-nonsense, reliable and honest.

  4. VICTOR KOAY in Parramatta. His shop, ZK Autos Golden Sydney Motor Service. A true, honest and sincere mechanic that always gets the job done right! prices the service honestly as well. He is a very hard working man, and his workshop shows for it. He has been in multiple newspapers in Sydney, due to the success of his business. His number is 98901868

  5. Norm Andrews Automotive at Richmond – great work, reasonable prices, never too busy to explain what has to be done and why, and won’t let you drive something they don’t consider safe. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.

  6. West st auto in west st Carlton. Howard and Gary are great. Honest decent guys who don’t rip u off

  7. Balgowlah Automotive.. They are just so good at what they do, and their customer service is also awesome..

  8. Steven & Brennan at Hurlstone Park. Excellent service, no lies and reasonably priced. They’ll teach you as well.

  9. 5 ways garage in Artarmon. The guy is very to the point and doesn’t have time for idiots, but he’s very good. He takes the time to make sure your car is right and is well priced.

    I’ve been taking my car there for close to 6 years now, never felt like I was ripped off. Nothing gets replaced unless needed to be.
