Our Wollongong-based mechanics specialise in repairing and servicing all makes and models of petrol, and diesel vehicles.

We also specialise in Audi, Volkswagen & Skoda vehicles. Our modern workshop is fully equipped with all necessary parts and materials, as well as the latest diagnostic equipment and a Safe-T-Stop brake and suspension testing track. One of the very few workshops to have a full-length Safe-T-Stop machine that is state of the art when it comes to braking performance, suspension integrity, and vehicle weight over each axle individually and collectively. Reports produced from the Safe-T-Stop are accepted by engineers for those doing brake and vehicle upgrades!

To ensure lasting results on your vehicle repairs, we only use top-quality products, including Castrol oils and lubricants. 1st Choice Mechanical Repairs is highly advanced in European vehicle servicing, diagnostics and repairs, particularly VW, Skoda and Audi vehicles.

All dealership pricing will be beaten at 1st Choice Mechanical Repairs with no substitute in the quality of parts and fluids used or knowledge about your vehicle.
