    Question Where to service your Mazda

    Morning all,

    I'm trying to find out for my dad where is a good place to service your mazda drifter diesel bakkie. When the vehicles get older one tends to steer away from the dealers due to their cost regardless of what make of vehicle you drive.

    From personal experience, I know the Mitsubishi owners in Pretoria make use of MitsPro or Pajero Service & Maintenance.

    The landrover guys also have multiple landrover indies that they make use of.

    My question to you Mazda gents is: where do you go to service your Mazda?

    The question applies to general services but I know he also soon wants to service/overhaul/do the injectors.

    My dad has the 2.5TD Drifter bakkie and he's in the Pretoria area.

    Your input will be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Hi Pantoffel,

    You can try Tienie Hay 0722161601 in Mayville. Or Thomas (don't know his surname) 0832543580 in Centurion.
    Tienie is a Diesel Specialist and Thomas is an old Ford factory mechanic that now has his own shop.

    Hi Pantoffel

    Check the dealers. They have as special rate for older Rangers. Service cost is fixed at R1200.

    Default service needed

    I'm sitting with the exact same scenario. I need to do a normal service (oil, filters) and need to get the injectors done.

    Does anyone know of someone or somewhere I can go to in or near Isando?

    Thank you.

    Hoekom service julle nie self die bakkies nie,olie - filter - air filter is nie rocker science nie,net die injectors sal moet laat doen word as julle dit wil ge service hť...

    I can really recommend Lazarus Centurion for routine services.

    @ toobs: IS this Thomas from Coachmans?

    Took my wife's Drifter for service and checkup at Coachmans (Thomas) today. Very good service, highly recommended if you dont have warranty restrictions.
