PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE READ THE REVIEWS BEFORE YOU MAKE A DECISION TO USE THIS BUSINESS.
The lure of cheap services and roadworthys is a cloak which covers the underlying intention of this business to charge unsuspecting customers exorbitant prices for work which has proven to be unnessessary in many cases. Look through the reviews and you will see similarities and common problems with cars and the average quote for work to be done around $2000 arising from a basic service . How else would a business like this survive charging such low service and routine inspections ... by make money on unneccessary work they conjure up. I know this to be true because we put both our cars in at the same time only to experience this twice in two days .One for a routine service $77 which we came back to find had unauthorised work done on it (degreasing $159) and a supposed oil leak which we haveread more

My car's fuel light was on when I picked it up from a service but I assumed I would have enough fuel to get to a fuel station on the drive home. I got about 500m around the corner to have it completely run out of fuel and stop in the middle of the road. I walked to a fuel station that was next to the Motor Hospital (but I would have had to drive around the block to access it therefore I chose to find one on the drive home). The mechanics were still out the front chatting and I asked for a fuel can because I'd just picked my car up and it ran out of fuel up the road. They told me they didn't have a key to access one inside, and one mechanic asked if it was the 'grey yaris' and I said yes and he said 'oh I went to change the fuel filter and wondered why there was no fuel'. Cheers for the heads up. How much did they flog my car for it to completely run out of fuel?!
Bad experience from motor hospital. They are charging huge amount for even a basic routine checkup. And also, they try to make us change most of parts so that they can make money from us. My friend too had a bad experience from them. They charge a labour of 149 for every single work to be done. They just make money from customers.
Staffs are very friendly and they provide great service. They always give honest opinions and will help advise list of jobs by priority so I can pace to get jobs done for car within my financial ability. They are also reasonably priced, are reliable. They took time to explain issues, the whys and the hows, to me. I have been going to them for a few years now, they have taking great care of my 2004 Camry car, and me as a customer. If you’re looking for someone who can give you genuine opinion, it will be Motor Hospital.
