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?

What’s Your opinion?

Sounds like the same problem i had with my car, shuddering and stalling at lights and this is an auto car. It eventually died :S Anyways to get it fixed I went to Mark at Jamison Automotive in Egan Ct Belconnen. He is honest and doesnt over charge and always manages to fit me in if its an emergency.

Gas Tune Tuggeranong, I dont trust any one else with my SS Commodore… Joe and the boys really know their stuff.

Canberra Motor Works in Mitchell – honest and reliable and very reasonable.

Brett’s automotive LPG in Mitchell. Good guy, knows what he is talking about, doesn’t make work up and charges reasonably. 6241 9959

Another vote for john at dickson mechanical and muffler, Very honest and kept my old subaru running flawlessly for years.

We’ve been with Stuart Elliott at Spence for nearly 20 years. They have a reputation for being reliable and trustworthy.

I use a mob out in Mitchell, ACDC in Kemble Court. I’ve always found them good and they actually call you to talk about what the problem is and what you want to do about it.

+1 For CWC auto services… I have two cars which I take there, plus you get a free courtesy car which is really useful…

Lovebumps is an NRMA member, so earlier this year took our machines to the NRMA Motorserve in Tuggeranong. Primarily for the member discount.

They have the Falcon getting an extra 50km per tank than before (we had been going to John McGrath for years).

when i had a car i used to go to john at dickson mechnical and muffler service – honest and reasonable, would source good quality second hand parts for me rather than charge the earth for new.

I have been using G&S Auto in Queanbeyan for anything to difficult to do myself. They are fantastic but can be booked up for a week or 2.

Also recently been using Commonwealth Motors Mitsubishi in Phillip with the new car, they have been fantastic, especially compared to all the rubbish dealers I used before that.

CWC Auto Services in Ainslie, behind the War Memorial. Great customer service, and they seem to be honest about what needs to be done with the car (I’m not a mechanic though, so who knows).

If you are anywhere near the Weston Creek area, Craig Webb in Holder. Works from home, knows his stuff & is very reasonable.

Can only recommend ones in Queanbeyan.
John Res, Gombars or Roger Kreft in no particular order. Suggest you ask for a diagnosis (which will cost you, I imagine) and ask them to contact you with cost of repairs before proceeding.
Gombars and John Res are close to bus routes in the event that you leave your car with them.
