Regular vehicle servicing

This is probably the single most important thing you can do to prolong the life and performance of your vehicle, because prevention is better than cure. 

For many of us, our car is probably one of our biggest investments and it would certainly be beneficial to keep it in tip-top condition. 

It will even be a great selling point to be able to show the service history when the time comes to move on to another vehicle. 

Diagnostic and tuning

Today’s vehicles incorporate complex computer technologies to control engines, suspension, lights, ABS, airbags, etc. 

To prevent further damage, if your check engine light comes on, let us scan the vehicle for you and get to the bottom of the issue quickly. 

We are well equipped with the latest diagnostic and tuning equipment to make sure your vehicle is always performing as it should.

Warrant of Fitness / W.O.F. Inspections

We are NZTA approved and certified to carry out Warrant of Fitness Inspections on your vehicle. Our fully qualified technicians are ready to assist with your WOF requirements on a booking schedule so that your WOF can be completed promptly, without the queues and hassle! 

If any further work is required, we usually try to do it within the same day because the safety and smooth functioning of the vehicle is our top priority. Same day service saves you the inconvenience of having to bring it in again. 

General Auto Repairs

We can help with engine failures, cambelt/timing belt, drive belt replacements, engine scans, bumper knocks, oil leaks, damage, injector cleaning and service, suspension, engine tune-up, transmission flushing, power steering, wheel alignment and balancing, radiator repairs, air conditioning etc.

Cambelt & water pump replacements

The cambelt is one of the hardest working parts of your engine. It will eventually wear out, and a damaged belt could break, often causing severe and massive engine damage. It is strongly advised that you keep the cambelt in good condition and replace it regularly to prevent more expensive damage to the engine. Let our trained technicians do it for you!

We can also diagnose and repair ABS systems, overhaul callipers, repair and replace pipes, hoses and everything else your car may need.
