Thought that this thread was long overdue. Please feel free to post your preferred service location - dealer or independent specialist. Hopefully should be a good national resource!

Could I suggest to those posting that your subject line include City or area, Vehicle type (if relevant - eg 172 or 225) and if relevant the speciality (eg "non-warranty service" or "ICE" or "panel beating" etc) to make it easier for everyone to quickly skim through the posts and find those relevant to them :D ........

For all your non warranty needs, including ALL logbook servicing in Brisbane go see:

 

LE FRENCH MOTOR

(07)3391 7461

17-19 Trafalgar Street

Woolloongabba 4102

 

Talk to Robert. He is a fastatic machanic and has a true love for all French cars. Very good rates as well. He took care of my baby before I had to move and if I ever move back to Brisbane, he shall take care of it once again!

My series 1 must be the most serviced / least mileage example.

5 years old in July.

17,800kms (nearly)

 

I suppose it needs a new timing belt because of the time, certainly not the distance.

Original battery blew last week.

 

Where is the best place near the Inner West (Sydney) for the 5 year service?

I've had nothing but bad Service from RD Leichhardt and CC Brookvale, no way it's ever going back to either of them.

Sweet, another blue mk1! Although with far fewer km's on th odo! I'm looking to do that belt work soon too, would be cool to negotiate a bargain with multiple renaults, from a reliable service shop. I'd like to support a smaller business if possible.

Happy to be a part of a group deal.

Just need to find the right bloke.

 

Carn the Mk1's!

 

Cool. Let us know if you decide on a mechanic and I'll do the same. Maybe when speaking with them, mention that you could bring in a few of the same cars as more business if they'll cut a deal.

Balmain European Car Repairs looking at a price for the 100K service / 5 years / Timing belt replacement for me today.

These guys are German, specialize in VW's / Audis. Recently did a clutch for a mate on a Golf VR6 for $900.

They have been looking after my wife's '93 Audi 80 V6 for years and do a great job for a good price.

Hopefully the news is good.

 

I finally cracked 18K Kms on the weekend, at that rate the timing belt would get replaced in 2028 for 100K Kms.

I'll post the obvious one

 

Waitara Renault (nth of Hornsby) - I've got a 2004 172

 

Guys there really seem to know their stuff. When you describe a problem they usually say "that sound like the ....." and in my case they were right. The guy who serviced my car was there in the morning when I dropped it off before work and we went for a drive, and he was still there when I picked it up after work (I work in the CBD) and had waited for me to discuss what had happened with the car and answer any questions I had.

 

Very happy with the service. That being said it's a long way away and it's not the cheapest. (however for me it's worth the travel for the peace of mind - I live near hurstville).
