Michael and the team at Vaucluse Auto Repairs are amazing! I have twice taken them my Mercedes 4WD with a nail in the tire and both times they have fixed them either while I waited or within the hour. And guess what....they didn't charge me. Nothing, zero, zip! I wouldn't hesitate to take my car to them for any issue or problem as they are knowledgeable (especially when it comes to luxury cars), honest, reliable and fast. I would give them 6 stars if I could.read more

This is the second time I have had my car serviced by Michael and his team and once again I am very pleased with the service. Not only did I feel I can trust what Michael advises, he is considerably cheaper and more professional that the dealership service centres. Yes BMW Sydney, I'm talking about you.

If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I would! I had put my car on the market and someone sold it quicker than I had imagined (lucky!) but I needed to service it before handover. I called Michael and he moved heaven and earth to get it done for me so that the sale could go ahead. Wonderful job too. Thank you for everything!!read more
