Reviews of Pittstop Mechanical

  • I'm sorry but as genuine as the guys seem here, I can't recommend them.
    I brought my car in for a rego check which they said passed with flying colours. One week later the car was shuddering. I looked into the issue and asked them to take a look at the ignition coils. Next thing my wife brings home the car with brand new set of break pads and disks which they previously deemed safe just days before - 500 dollars. I take the car back (more time off work for me) to get the real problem solved and they charged me my absolute limit I gave them as I was now strapped for cash another 400 dollars to finally fix the shuddering. Car works for another 2 weeks then I get warning lights firing on my dash saying the engine's too hot. The coolant was low so I topped it up and the car works fine for another week. Then, finally, it completely breaks down. The head gasket is now blown as the hoses were loose on the engine causing water and oil to mix within the engine. So now a new engine at a different mechanic is setting me back $2000 dollars.
    I want this to be a fair review so I have to say that there are a lot of factors here that aren't necessarily Pittstop's fault, but at the end of the day you have to have faith in your mechanic to do the right job, correctly, at no extra cost to the customer. I can't honestly say I do when it comes to this particular shop.
  • I've taken my car here twice now and the service is the best I've ever had. The mechanics are fantastic at what they do and passionate about their work. Highly recommend this shop!
  • Honestly this is by far the best mechanic I've ever been to. No matter what the situation, they've always got excellent service and advise. Id highly recommend this mechanic to anyone who wants the best and No#1 service for there cars. There also cheap comparing to others =) trust me, you won't regret it coz its the best in Sydney.
  • The 2 previous reviews were right. The guys working there are very proud of their work and honest. Great service and rates.
    Knew allot about the problem I came with and confirmed the diagnoses as well as provided advice for future maintenance and care of my car. I will be using them again.
  • Great service, cheap rates and the owner Wally is always willing to go the extra mile to help a guy out. As a fellow mechanic it's easy to spot who's trustworthy, and who's not so the last time I had to go back home to the states he was the only person I trusted to look after my vehicles. I've been going here for several years, and will continue to do so.
  • cheep and honest. A great local mechanic.
