Get a new bike from $50 per week

Any honest and reasonable priced mechanic in Canberra?

By bel_con_nen 11 July 2010 28

Recently my lancer got 2 cylinders misfiring.

The car starts and drives but shakes really bad and stalls at red lights.

It should have something to do with the fuel injections or spark plugs?

I need a good & honest mechanic in Canberra.

Preferably reasonable priced ones too.

Any suggestions?

I have been using Ikes Motors at Phillip for over 10 years. Family business – Ike is actually there in the workshop and has years of experience. His wife Denise is at the desk and does the admin and I think they have a son who works with them (although not sure). Very honest in their advice and have saved me money and angst over the years. They know their stuff and friendly too.

I have been going to Russell at Fisher Car Care for years. My neighbours recommended him. He is honest, reliable, has kept my car going without a hitch and doesn’t charge like a wounded bull. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Beau Lock Don’t know about that, he was supposed to service my car, from what I recall I don’t think he did anything, didn’t change a plug, when I had another mechanic look at it he said the radiator cap had not been taken off, so there you go, I was right, the smirks on their faces when I picked the car up and asked what had they done, Sweet FA, so no I would never go back there again.

Mechanical care in Belconnen (park st), Tony is a great honest guy, highly recommended mechanic of ours for years.

Yes, Beserk, I agree. Years ago I bought a 2nd-hand Mazda and decided to take it to the dealer for a service. Less than a week later it broke down as the points hadn’t been replaced. NRMA got me going temporarily.

Went back to Slaven Mazda, told them what happened and asked them to fix it properly. They wouldn’t, but did offer me the points for free (which should have been included in the original service cost), and charged me to install them.

Never been back, and never will be. The local mechanic charged half as much, and did a much more professional job.

I can recommend Mazda Phillip if rude and dishonest mechanics is what you like.
