We got our oil changed here for $100 pesos, the mechanic was quick and efficient, even rinsing down the area to make sure there was no oil on the car.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Very helpful, although they couldn't help us themselves. Diagnosed the problem with our differential an sent us to a specialist in Oaxaca. Didn't want any pay ("we did not work") but logically I gave a propina. Thank you, Uziel!Report Check-In
This is now known as "Two Brothers" and is run by different people but we highly recommend this mechanic. it is a well equipped, clean and organized workshop. we took our van here after it had been sitting for two and a half years because of the pandemic. They did a thorough check, and took photos of everything needing attention and broke down the cost for every item. We ended up getting the engine and transmission mounts replaced, all steering arms replaced, sway bar bushes replaced, suspension greased, fuel filter replaced, two rear brake slave cylinders and the main master cylinder and reservoir replaced all for $8940pesos. They even fully cleaned the van including the underside by putting it on a hoist and sprayed a lubrication over all the suspension free of charge. One part took a few days to get ordered in but apart from that they were very efficient. one of the guys speaks a little English. Their business whatsapp is +52 951 347 0715Report Check-In

During Covid-19 Eric recieved less clients which made him move to his smaller workshop at his house 3,7km North East from here. Check Ioverlander vor Robles Automotriz.
Eric and his team do good work and let you stick around while they work. Had them do lots of medium repairs and maintenance on our VW T4.
This location is a carwash now.Report Check-In
Reviews are spot on. If you were even thinking about getting some maintenance done, DO IT HERE. He’s cheap, clean, knowledgeable, willing to let you watch or even do it yourself! No English but patient and good cell service to use google translate.Report Check-In
Super automobile garage, I had the front brake discs corrected, and we went around all the oils, filters, ect ... Erick, his brother and the employees do a remarkable job in a Zen atmosphere, away from the stress big garages of oaxaca. We recommend 100%! Price of manpower hyper reasonable.Report Check-In
This mechanic came highly recommended by Calvin from Overlander Oasis and he was 100% right. This is THE best mechanic we have been to in all of Latin America. Example: we replaced one oil retainer seal on our front axle. Since we had the repair manual, the mechanic asked us if we had the needed torque figures to tighten all screws as well as a spring scale to measure rotational resistance. Never have I encountered a mechanic in Latin America who was so thorough, that he used a torque wrench or spring scale when reassembling an axle.
They also let us rent one of the hydraulic lifts to spray our car with anti-corrosion paint on the underbody.
Prices are incredibly fair. We paid 550 to replace: Clutch master and slave cylinder, clutch fluid, brake fluid. Fluids provided by them, spare parts by us. Washing the underbody of the car, replacing the oil retainer seal in the axle (>half day of work) and renting the hydraulic lift came in at 1170.
We seriously can't recommend these guys highly enough - they are THE best. Just look at the pictures of how well their tools are organized, truly unique. As you can tell, we are huge fans :) Ask for Eric.
Excellent shop recommended by another Overlander. We brought all our own lube. Front & rear differential, transfer case, transmission oil done for 200 pesos and small tip. Looks like they do engine work also if required. Had 3 workers under the truck a few times in the 1.5 hours we spent at the shop. Would also recommend. Owners name is Erick.Report Check-In
The first mechanic, in our 18months trip, we would honestly recommend.
We were here with our VW T4 (Eurovan) and the guys did a good job. I’ve never seen such a clean workshop in Latin America. The prices are more than fair.
50 pesos for an oil change. Brought our own oil and filter. Super quick and great job.Report Check-In
Small but decent mechanic workshop in Santa María del Tule. It's across the street from the Super Ali mini-market, on the left if you're coming from the town center. The owner used to work at a local VW dealership before opening his own shop 5 years ago. He has two lifts and a good assortment of tools. We got all oils of our Land Rover changed. Took about 2.5 hours and cost us MXP250, plus tip. Make sure to bring your own lubricants!Report Check-In
