enny was very helpful and did a quick and quality repair to air-con pulley and oil top of a Toyota Landcruiser on a Saturday and public holiday. 120 usd, but likely mzungu price as he was aware rental company for the car would be paying.

It's a good garage I think. They could not fix the problem on my Land Rover because the knowledge on TD5 engines is not there. It was better if they said it in the beginning. But they really tried to help me. Price is also fine.
They have all the knowledge on Toyota.

Report Check-In

Had a broken center bolt on back axle and also a sheared off bolt on front shield plate. Total cost was 90,000tsh.
Breakdown:
center bolt 25,000, repair sump bolt 15,000, labour charges 50,000.
Benny and mechanic team were all very helpful. Total time took 6 hours, but no complaints as replacing a center bolt is a labor intensive process. You can contact Benny via WhatsApp or text at +255 754 274 381.

UPDATE: Our center bolt was installed incorrectly with bolt placed into wrong hole. We were able to drive away but the issue was not fixed and we had other issues arise as a result. We were in a remote area but got to the town of Songea and the mechanic there correctly identified the issue.
Benny runs the shop but does not do the actual labor and apparently some of his staff is not adequately trained. Best to keep a close eye.

Good quick service at reasonable prices. Had a minor service replaced filter oil etc all legitimate Toyota parts. Didn’t pre-book turned around in an hour. Only accept cash.

**update**

Oil filter was not fitted properly. Luckily spotted before it was too late!
