Fantastic place! Lovely receptionist. Nothing too much trouble (fixed a wobbly front bumper with a bit of kiwi ingenuity for free!). NOT a place to say work needs to be done when it doesn’t. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Acton Autos have been servicing my wife's Audi TT for many years, and I can't say enough good things about the level of service we receive from them. Chris is always incredibly helpful, and they never have the car longer than planned. Even large maintenance and repair jobs have been performed quickly.I have no hesitation in recommending them for all your automotive mechanical needs.
First time customer, I chose Acton Automotive from online research and reviews - and I'm so glad I did. When you hear the horror stories of other businesses replacing parts that didn't need it and charging exhorbitant prices, it's a scary time for someone who knows virtually nothing about cars!Acton listened to what I explained had been going on, and Jeff the mechanic kept me informed of the repairs every step of the way. He explained everything clearly and kept the old parts so I could see for myself where the damage was. The detailed invoice had no surprises, and I was extremely happy with my experience.
I popped in here on the off chance that Chris and the team could help me out and fix my car.I received top notch service and repair, Chris offered a loan car which was very much appreciated. The repair was done quickly and the team went the extra mile. I went back a week later with our other car for a service. Glad I found them, what a find will only go there form now on.
For 3 yrs been doing servicing, repairs and wof for BMW 320i. The mechanic had always explained in detail about the problem after diagnosing. Few months back did a pre-purchase inspection for Camry hybrid and was happy with their feedback. They're professional, reasonable and understand customer satisfaction.
I got my lexus fixed from these guys. I got inspection of my car just 4-5 days prior going to Acton Automotives. My Wof was failed because of tyres and brake rotors. I got them changed. I thought to go to these guys to get the new wof done. After inspection they told me that my low beam lights are not good, which was totally fine 3-4 days ago and were not mentioned in previous wof. I had no other option so had to get them fixed. Those were the expensive ones.Later I found the water pipe attached to windscreen water bottle is missing. It only needs to be taken out to get access to change lights. I rang them and the guy was not helpful. He said he can’t remember the built of structure of car and can’t recall if it is just behind the light or somewhere else.Not happy with the communication. They just don’t bother to help you out at all. Don’t want to go there in future.
Top quality service and repairs on my BMW. Explained everything in detail and offered great advice too. They have years of experience with European cars and know what they are talking about. Best of all they charge a very fair price (not dirt cheap but not too expensive either). For the thorough service, it was worth every cent. Thank you Acton. Great alternative to European car owners who don’t want to pay the premium pricing from dealers.
Recently had my BMW 3 series looked at here for an oxygen sensor, very helpful, communicative and polite staff. Reasonably priced and will be returning for any other issues I have! Great to find a reliable garage here in Christchurch!
