    Default Where to service a Spark in Pretoria - Moot Area

    Any ideas / recommendations on where to have my wife`s Spark serviced in Pretoria Moot area?

    I would rather pay to have it done than to face the music if something goes wrong after doing it myself. Oil, filters etc are easy and straight forward, but i don`t have the knowledge or tools / equipment do do a thorough point check on the vehicle. I also don`t particularly enjoy squeezing below the vehicle to drain the oil etc.

    Last service ( 150 000Km schedule with 95 000km actual ) was done in 2020 by Bosh Car Service in Sefako Makgatho ( Zambesi ) which included replacing brake fluid, coolant, air filter and spark plugs. Only realised they closed down last week when trying to book a service.
    Next service should only be oil and oil filter, I think?

    And can someone please suggest a good mechanic to replace a top gasket on a Chevy Spark in the Brakpan area? It was badly done in the past and now blows a gasket once a year.

    Dis my vermoede ook. Die motor behoort aan 'n vriendin wie die voertuig 'n paar jaar gelede laat oor doen het. Sedertdien is dit net nie reg nie. As ek kon sou ek self opgemaakt het, maar ek is in Pretoria en het nie die typ om die werk in Brakpan te gaan doen nie. Kan iemand 'n betroubare werkwinkel aanbeveel?

    Also thought about them, but the workshop did not impress me when they did some work on my Jetta many years ago.
    Also just saw all the complaints on Hello Peter?
