Jackson fixed my Volvo car which was having problems supplying power to the engine and it would just turn of in the middle of a drive. L had enquired with other mechanics and they could not figure out what the problem was. When l found Jackson on the internet he came and assisted me wll with this problem. He was able to diagnise the cause and now my car is working perfectly. He even charged me a very reasonable amount for his work.

Pardington and his assistants spraypainted my car. They also repaired the car engine, and they did a good job. They redid the Cylinder head, and they replace the water pump. They also fixed my radiator, and I am happy with the work they did. They were efficient at their work, and they finished the work on time. They are trustworthy as I left my car with them for a week. They washed my car after finishing work. The price that Pardington charged was affordable, and I can recommend him to others.

Nqabayezitha's work is good. When one of my cars couldn't start, I called him to come and check it. And he didn't hesitate, he was there with 20 min. He examined it and told me what the problem was, what he is going to need to fix it and also how long its going to take him. He came back to fix it, when I was ready financially and it took him the whole day to fix it. Now my other car has broken done and the gasket needs to be replaced. I have entrusted him with my car as he needs to fix it from his workshop and I told him to bring it back once he is a 100% sure that it is ok.

My car had an engine lock and I took it to some clinic and they had my car for 8 weeks then brought it back and it was still not functioning. I then took it to Takudzwa who only fixed it within 2 weeks and everything was up and running and I even regretted why I had taken it to that clinic first. Takudzwa charged me very affordable prices and he also managed to produce the best results within a few weeks. He also brought back the car in a very clean state and the engine was not even leaking any oil. I trust Takudzwa and I have already been recommending him to other people.
