hi all,


looking for a trustworthy, reliable car mechanic shop (anywhere in auckland) who can service my merc.


I had an issue  with previous car mechanic wherein i thought they tried to fix the things which were not exactly needed and also damaged fuel pump while repairing something else that cost me more than $1k. (sorry but don't ask me i am not going to reveal the name of the mechanic)


please let me know if you know who is reliable and not always after money

Some petrol cars have secondary pumps,


Diesel's have mechanical pumps on the engine....
