    Default Good service in Cape Town

    Hi All.

    Hope everyone had a good weekend!

    Just looking for some advice on good service centres in Cape Town.

    I had my clutch and DMF on my Td5 defender 90 replaced about 9 months ago at an independent Land Rover service centre in Cape Town (not mentioning any names) and literally got my car back in a worse condition, (nuts missing on props, handbrake not working, gear levers broken off, diff lock engaged even when lever is disengaged, heavy vibration etc.) took the car back to have it repaired again at their cost, still had to pay for a few thing though.

    Handbrake was fine but gradually got worse again and is non existent at the moment and some oil can be seen leaking at the drum again. (maybe they pinched the seal...AGAIN)

    What's even worse is after only a little over 10000km's I am now experiencing a terrible clutch judder when the car is at temp both in 1st and reverse.

    Pretty sure the clutch and DMF is still under warranty but really don't want to take the car back to them again.

    So looking for advice on any decent service centres in Cape Town that will be able to have a look and sort out these problems and not charge an arm and a leg.

    any advice appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I'd be interested to know who you're referring to for future reference but agree with you not naming the workshop publicly. Would you mind sending me a PM?

    For the 5 years that I owned a Defender (sadly sold it 2 months ago), I had it serviced regularly by Twin Landy in Tokai / Retreat area.
    They may not be the cheapest in town, but at no time did I ever have any issues with their workmanship.
