Preferred Subaru mechanics - By owners, for owners! (Poll)

Postby Random Dude » Mon Oct 27, 2008 7:24 pm

This thread will most likely be turned into a FAQ! :)

This thread will be poll based, listing the main Subaru servicing companies in Melbourne that our forum members prefer. Not just club sponsors, but any mechanic in Melbourne, Geelong or anywhere else in Victoria where you send your beloved Subaru.

This will be limited to just mechanical work at the moment. This will include servicing, upgrades and repairs. This thread won't cover tuning (watch for a separate thread)


Please no personal attacks on any companies in this thread. These will be removed without hesitation.

Due to the forum poll restrictions, only the top 10 (most popular) companies will be listed. But please recommend any others in a post below if you believe they deserve a mention.

I agree. Although some of us support many mechanics, most of the time it's serviced at one and tuned at another. This poll is about our preferred single mechanic. I as almighty creater of this post will turn it back to ONE choice :) Sorry Es nerd

I think we should be able to choose more then one.

And add a tight arse option.

I trust my car with a few place, although I do most of the work myself.

I don't really want to reset the poll again - There is only one spot left so it would be for the most popular that isn't already there. So far you're winning :)

My thread, my rules :)

Feel free to recommend multiple mechanics in your posts, but the poll only gets the most preferred for mechanical work. Or choose whichever one you visit more often. Or which one you would recommend the most basically 8)

For example, I have had work done at both AVO and URD - and both provide fantastic service and I would recommend them to everybody - but I do have a favourite :giggle:

You're going to keep resetting it until URD gets all the votes, huh? :P

This would be a great help in getting my car up and running again!
