What mechanic do you use?

For me there is only one.

Ashro Autos, Mark is a star.


Ps, Gator for driveshaft!?

Don't forget Mechanica Juan who can be found on Facebook. His garage is on the Buzanada side of the motor way, by the riding school.

Yes, he's excellent too. I used to use him years ago. There's also his ex colleague, Martin in chio too.

I,ll get the bullet if I don,t chip in.
Ermmmmm, Yes, it has to be Ashro for all things cars.
Jokin' aside. The guy has always been the most helpful mechanic you could possibly wish to have. Experience has always taught me. Find a mechanic you are totally happy with and rest easily. Mark all the way!
(Can I get a spiff for this?)(And no suggestions of inserting an "l" please!)

Ashro is fine, he serviced our car and got it through ITV. But please someone ask him (or his co workers) NOT to smoke in other peoples cars, it came back stinking and stank for a week afterwards :fryingpan:

We used to use Kevin, and he was always brilliant, but I have heard he has gone back to the UK. Also Mendit Autos have been fab too, my parents panicked about when they had last changed the cambelt on their car, they took it to Mendit and he promptly rang them a few hours later and told them it doesnt need changing just yet. An honest mechanic, not many of them around!!!!

Hik Guys, i asked on wednesday (i think) i asked if any one could reccomend a good mechanic to me to have my car serviced, i went to Ashro, as there were alot of posts about him, and im sorry i didnt like im, i didnt like how his garage/yeard looked like a scrap heap , the fact that one of his workers was smoking in a clients car, so he is off my list sorry Ashro.

How ever a couple of posts on here are about mechanic Juan located on the buzanada side of the motor way, after asking aound i managed to track him down and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! is garage is clean, his front car port is clean and he is even clean!!, ive just picked up my car now , the customer service was excellent, i feel totally comfortable dealing with him, he is REALLY CHEAP!! and also told me when my next service is due and what to expect.

Juan Mechanic has my vote every day of the week thanks Juan
and also does any one know if he is single?? as i do think he is a bit of a dish as well

Thanks bloggers i will be back!!

Hi Guys,

on Wednesday i think i asked on here if any one could recommend a mechanic to service my car.

Alot of you said Ashro, i went down there and im sorry but i wasnt impressed, his yard looked like a scrap heap and his garage really dirty (i know its a work shop but come on), and after reading a post on here i found that one of his co workers had smoked in a car and as a non smoker its really off putting.

Sorry Ashro you dont have my vote.

How ever a couple of you went on to recommend mechanic Juan on the buzanada side of the motor way, i managed to track him down and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! his car port is clean, his garage is clean and for a mechanic he was clean!!!.

i felt totally comfortable dealing with him, i felt i wasnt ripped off in fact i thought it was cheap AND he even told me what to expect to spend on the next service what more could a girl want!!!!

MECHANIC JUAN HAS MY VOTE EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK!!!
Thanks Juan for everything i will deffinatly use you from now on and will reccomend you as well

Graham at Chimiche is also excellent and provides a courtesy car free of charge! His phone number is 686539751 - I've been going to him for years now. He offers a full spectrum of services, does an oil and filter change, then gives you a mileage to come back for an interim service, then another mileage for an oil and filter change, then another mileage for a full service. His prices are very reasonable and he is very very efficient!

What a shame, all that good work wasted, because some tw-t smoked in the car, But your only as good as your last job, A friend of mine has a garage that looks like a scrapyard, grew up together, worked together, Tried telling him, but nah, straight over his head, another freind i give a lot of work to, place is spotless, first thing a job card, with everything wrote down, then seat cover and floor mat, job done, mini vallete, car parked facing outwards, reception big TV leather sofa's free coffee, no complaints, Got to be on top off your game to survive, not enough just to know about cars, find one your happy with and stick with him, tell him if your not happy with something, also tell him when you are, everybody likes a pat on the head

JUAN is excellent and is married to a friend of mine. She met him when she had a problem with her car. Needless to say, after her first visit she had a lot of problems with her car:whistle: and now they are expecting their 2nd baby!
The first time I met him I thought he might not speak much English so I used my bestest spanglish to relate my car problem. How silly did I feel when he answered me in perfect English and with a broad London accent!
I left my car with him and as it happens there was nothing wrong with the car - it was the way I was turning the key in the ignition! Doh!!!
As a female who knows not a lot about cars (there's a surprise) he could have charged me a fortune, but he charged me nothing! Sound geezer and I've always returned to him since.

I would whole heartedly recomend Ashro! Came to meet me at his garage out of hours as I arrived on the back of a Grua - tried to fix it there and then to get me straight back on the road, unfortunately it needed a new part, - tried his best to source from scrappies here - but none available - and after getting high price from mains dealer - tracked me down the part from UK at fraction of the price - and had me back on the road the day after part arrived on the Island - and i've definitely no complaints with the labour charge.

Cheap & reliable = not fast
Cheap & fast = not reliable
Fast & reliable = not cheap

The head gasket was minced on the BM a while back, and Ashro was too busy to take the job on.

As a result, I came across Peter of Adeje Motor (https://www.facebook.com/adeje.motor).

Not cheap, but flawless work, will go way outside the call of duty for you, and everything, down to a simple battery, comes with a guarantee.

Phone number is 922775770, and they are just up the hill from the new Policia Local in Adeje.

do not use these cowboys..they are ripoff merchants...they charge for parts that they have not replaced...they changed my clutch (supposedly) it went 3 mths later..a new garage iwent to said that it had never had a new clutch fitted...i was charged 450 euro for nothing but a botch job...the more i tell people the more stories i hear oabot them...so people stay well away from astro auto,s and there owner mark....be warned

Last month I needed to find a mechanic quickly, as my car had failed the ITV and I was due back in the UK. I used Juan Gomez at the Shell Garage in Armenime after recommendations from friends.

Although he spoke no English and my Spanish is not up to much, we made ourselves understood. He had the car fixed within a couple of hours and for half the price I would have had to pay in the UK. Needless to say, he is at the top of my list for any future work.

PS have to say the ITV station in Adeje is very impressive and quick.
