    Default Best Peugeot servicing not named Trivett in Western Sydney

    Hi All,

    Advertisement


    Brand new Peugeot 206 owner here. I was wondering if there is any advice on the peugeot specialists mechanics with great reputation that won't cost an arm or a leg like Trivett (the official Peugeot servicers).

    I live in Greystanes (Sydney's west near Merrylands and Parramatta).
    Also, I work in North Ryde / Macquarie Park area.

    Does anyone know reputable Peugeot mechanics in either of these areas?

    Thanks for all your help. And excited to be a part of this forum (this is my 1st post).

    You could try Colliers on James Ruse Drive Granville. I've been there a couple of times for minor work (A clutch cable, and heater hose). I've heard good things about them from other forum members.

    Thanks Wintermute. You're the only one who has been helpful in this thread.

    Anyone else with suggestions? I would also like to find some reputable Peugeot specialists in the North Ryde / Marsfield / Macquarie Park area.

    Cheers

    G'day,
    they are mentioned a lot in this forum, they also advertise in the Pug Club magazine. I had some electrical work done there, no worries at all. And, they can balance Pug wheels that don't have a centre hole. And, they are close to the rail station, important for me. And, [I know, three in a row] they are nice people.
    regards,
    Les W.

    I bought a gearbox mount off P504 Services a few weeks ago. The chap there was most friendly and helpful

    Glad to hear Simon is still operating a good business. When they were in Forestville, they saw me one a week for a chat. Along with Simonetta's in Brookvale.

    Yes...well, we all have different experiences with some of these places, it seems! I can, however, recommend P Q Automotive at 5 Smith Street, Chatswood. They seem very good to me, they do what they say they'll do and the quality is there - Maurice & Pierre are the two guys there, call them on 02 98823215

    You won't get work done there on Shabbat!

    To the OP: Is there anything specifically due for attention on the car? If not, then you should have plenty of choices. For a basic oil/filter you might even speak to Tuffy in Epping - they'd be well placed for you to complete the journey to work by train/bus.

    Agreed, talk to David at Colliers. Have used them many times over the years and can recommend

    I can second the recommendation for PQ at Chatswood. Good people. I work at North Ryde (next to North Ryde Station) and it's a quick easy train/bus trip to PQ.

    Hi there,

    i have been a customer of Citromet for many years. They are located at 46 Larra st, Yennora, 02 9721 1889.

    Tom Dolan, proprietor specialises in Citroen, but works on Peugeot and Renault (and if it's quiet, jap stuff too). You may find his hourly rate a little higher than your local garage, but Tom does quality work.

    He is old school in his approach to working on cars, stands by his work. He also has all of the modern equipment to handle the later model cars.

    I have sent quite a few customers his way and all have been very satisified with his work.

    Cheers
    Andrew
