WOW I bought my car in for a Quote on a clutch after I had a service at the local Nambour dealer I bought the car from and was told I need a clutch kit and the parts are not covered in our warranty. Bill was going to be $1600 on top of a $400 service on a Suzuki Alto. I took the car to Jose St and not only did I get good advice but he looked at the Alto and adjusted the clutch for free so it works without grinding the gears.

Excellent service turned up unannounced when my A/C packed up although they were busy they took the time to have a look and fixed it for me at no charge as it was a simple fix. They have won me and I will not need to look any further for a trustworthy mechanic.

Simply the BEST mechanics we have been to. Honest, timely & they gave me a full comprehensive report so I knew exactly what was happening with the car & they gave me a 10% seniors discount!

I had my brake pads done and they work great – no problems at all. Young guy was very friendly and dropped me at work and picked me up when the car was ready. Another chap went through every item on the invoice and explained what they did and why (they quoted first). Very good service.

Excellent guys and excellent old school service. Wouldn’t take my car anywhere else. Have even moved away and still take my car back there to be serviced. They are so very obliging, they keep you informed the whole way and will go out of their way to assist. You couldn’t ask for better mechanics.

These guys are awesome. So nice and friendly and the best thing of all they don’t rip you off and charge you for repairs that weren’t needed or necessary. Quick and easy to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone especially if you want things explained properly. Very pleased.

The team at Nambour Car Service go above and beyond their job description. They take the time to discuss your service needs and when the job has been completed they provide a comprehensive overview of the work that they have done both written and verbally. Our family have been customers of Nambour Car Service for a number of years. Denis runs a very professional service centre and has an excellent rapport with his customers.

Nev H.

For the last 5 years we have taken both of our European cars to Nambour Car Service and have been very happy with the service, price and quality of work. We do recommend.

Max R.

Great communication – very detailed rundown about every piece of work done, and love how they tell you about upcoming jobs. Very reliable and friendly service.


I came away very satisfied with the car service I received. The team were friendly and explained everything clearly. I appreciated the affordable price, honesty, integrity and peace of mind I was left with.

Pre-Purchase Used Car Inspection Service

So you’ve found your dream used car, and you just want to finalise payment so you can get behind the wheel and drive off. Before you jump into a purchase with no return policy, though, you should consider getting a mechanic to check the car before buying it. This is called a pre-purchase car inspection.

At Nambour Car Service, our pre-purchase mechanics provide detailed pre-purchase vehicle inspection services for all types of car makes and models. Rest assured, if there is an issue/defect with the car which might or should preclude it from purchase, we will find it.

3 Reasons to Get a Pre-Purchase Car Check

If you’re thinking you have nothing to worry about because you’re buying the second-hand car from a legitimate used auto dealer, or from an independent seller that has shown you a roadworthy certificate, you would be wrong?

On the contrary, a pre-purchase car check is an important step to take when buying any used car—regardless of who the seller is or how few kilometres are on the vehicle. Here are 3 particularly strong reasons to schedule in a pre-buy car inspection with Nambour Car Service the moment you start thinking about purchasing a specific used make and model.

  1. Roadworthy Certificates can be unreliable: It’s a sad-but-true fact that there is a good deal of dishonesty which goes on in the used car industry. Denis and Jasmine have owned and operated Nambour Car Service since 2003, and over the years, they’ve seen that there are still many workshops and businesses throughout Queensland which will sign roadworthy certificates for distinctly un-roadworthy cars. Bottom line, even if a car does have a certificate, it’s still a good idea to get a pre-purchase vehicle inspection carried out to make sure it’s truly in full safe and functioning order.
  2. A second opinion is always valuable: Even if the used car dealer tells you the car in question has already gone through a car inspection, and even if you know the roadworthy certificate came from a reputable workshop, a second opinion is always worthwhile. Roadworthy inspections aren’t comprehensive, and dealer inspections can be biased. The mechanics at Nambour Car Service, provide comprehensive pre-purchase inspections that look at every aspect of your prospective vehicle in a fully unbiased light.
  3. A pre-purchase used car inspection could save you money and headaches in the long run: Second-hand cars can look great, but they may have years of deferred maintenance under the hood. In some cases, a car may have been in an accident and repaired improperly. These are just two examples of issues that may not become apparent during a test drive, but will eventually cause problems further down the road. When you buy a damaged or poorly maintained car, you are also buying responsibility for all of its flaws and issues. You owe it to yourself to find out just how much those flaws and issues could end up costing you in the months or years to come.
