  • Newcastle mechanic

    Bought a pajero 6 months ago, due for its first service. Does anyone have a good mechanic to use near the centre of Newcastle. I have had Subarus for 10 years and always used a subaru specialist so need to use someone else. I don't really want to use a dealer and don't want to get the 45k reflash that messes with your fuel economy

    What model Pajero did you get mate?

    I too wouldn't mind finding a good reputable fair mechanic in Newcastle. I have used one of the main Mitsi dealers (ie the big franchise of different makes in Newcastle) here and not overly excited with their service.

    Wanting: Rocksliders, 2" lift, snorkel or perhaps I should wait and purchase a NS swb in 12months time.

        Picked up a 2011 NW exceed. Looks like we all need a mechanic, any help from the forum?

          I'm going to go to a non dealer next time I'm due for service. I've only recently had a service so it will be some time before I can give an opinion.

              I've used Rob Rosier at Rosier Diesel Injection Service in Kotara for some trouble shooting once. I thought there might be an issue with the DMF or an engine mount (1st diesel I've owned). She makes a bit of a thump on a cold start. He kept the car overnight, started it cold the next morning & took it for a drive to be sure. When I went to pick it up he said it was fine, plenty of grunt still there, nothing out of the norm for a diesel & said the Toyota D4-D were much worse - he reckons he gets 2-3 calls a week during winter for them. Mentioned the injectors might be getting a bit old but nothing to worry about, he could change them if I really wanted. Sent me on my way & didn't charge me anything. I'd recommend that type of service to anyone.

              Cheers,
