Had recently bought my VE 2 Commodore (sold to me as a 3.6 litre) and took it here car for its service, and also asked to have a look at the transmission and check the car over for me as well. Quoted price for service $160.00 Recieved a phone call later informing me of numerous "issues" with the car (engine, brake pads, etc) as well as being told it would cost $1,800 to fix everything. (which may or may not fix the transmission problem) I didn't have $1,800 to fix eveything so said to concentrate on the engine and transmission and I'd get the brakes and other things fixed when I had the money. Bill for that - was still $1,000. Comment was made about it having the wrong spark plugs in the engine when I picked my car up, and to be honest the car didn't drive any better after its service than it did before I took it in. Apparently the front brakes needed looking at but the back brakes were fine. A couple of weeks later I took my car to Ultratune to get the brakes done, and askedread more
We have used Hamstead auto for a few years now for repairs and they recently inspected a Hyundai pre-purchase. Honest,friendly and reliable family.
They are straight up about their assessments and don't try to sell/fix things that aren't required.
I live in Adelaide Hills now and still use them - I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Bought a service voucher cheap on a voucher website. Got quoted excessive pricing for basic repairs and found another mechanic who more than halved our costs. Oil had not been changed and oil filter was filthy. No evidence of a thorough service whatsoever and our heater stopped working shortly after the service.
