Never thought I would be posting a recommendation for a mechanic - cause Ive never came across a decent one since Ive been here!!!
My car engine "blew up" last week on a 4 day holiday in Carakalinga and the RAA recommended a garage within the covered distance: M & D Auto Care, Lacey Drive, Aldinga. Car was taken there by tow and they called us the next morning. We received the best service from a chap Mick there (Yorkshire I think he was) He kept us up to date with what was going on and explained everything in basic terms even recommending another place to go to have some specialist work done. Having the car taken to that garage made the best of an otherwise dreadful situation.
Huge thums up - definately be using that garage again!
