Where to service my Ford?

Hi all,

Anyone can recommend a good (and affordable) mechanic to service my beaut and do minor fix-ups (like steering wheel alignment and lubricating the wheel rod)?

I've been to about three and it seems that aside from wanting to rip me off (which would be fine if they actually did the job) they did very shoddy/non-existent jobs as well.

Any good and reliable mechanics you could recommend?

Any inner suburb would be great.

Meanwhile, if you know any good/recommended places to get a dirty car hand washed and/or detailed to perfection would be great as well.

Thanks.

Welcome SpeedDem0n!

When looking for local mechanics, I look for ones that have been in business for awhile and seem to have a good customer base. Sometimes talking to your neighbors and asking around is the best way to find a mechanic that people seem to be comfortable with and you too can share in the satisfaction of knowing that you have a trustworthy mechanic. I would personally steer away from quick lubes and tire shops when it comes to vehicle maintenance.

The mechanic that I have used for my vehicle maintenance is a family-owned business and he always has cars waiting in his lot. That is a good sign.
