Some of these glowing reviews read like advertisements and just don;t ring true. When people get a good service they tend NOT to write reviews- the one son here just seem too damned false.

Hi Sam, you are right. It usually does not seem true but this one is. Same day service, 2 hours+ on the job with full explanations along the way. The mechanic Lube Mobile sent me -Nick- is a European car specialist and was able to answer all questions without hiding the potential costs and issues. I really liked the fact that I got a quote through their online chat but the final decision of what to include in the service was made by me with the mechanic after full inspection and a test drive. In this case, the review was totally deserved and I will call on Nick again, especially as we are planning a trip to the Kimberley mid-year.

I'm not denying people have had good service from Lubemobile or ALL reviews are false. Just some sound too exalted!. I've used Lube Mobile 5 times and it's been a bloody expensive exercise. The last time I was quote d$600 to replace some things and they wanted cash to go off a buy them and return the next day. I took my car to my local mechanic in Surry Hills who I know is always right (but expensive) and he said it was a totally wrong diagnosis and he fixed it foe under $400. The very first time I used Lubemobile they left a battery lead barely attached which caused major headaches with the car going dead at traffic lights etc. An honest electrical mechanic pointed it out for a n agreed turnout fee of $100. I've said previously- Lube Mobile DO NOT do roadworthy certificates themselves but they state they do. This is false advertising. They may inspect your car or take it to another garage but they DO NOT issue certificates themselves so you cannot eb sure the RTA will receive that certificate and a day's delay by whatever third party Lubemobile used cost me a $550 fine when i thought the certificate had been sent to the RTA. Hence my complaint to Fair Trading. I would NEVER allow myself to be in the hands of a mechanic who has you over a barrel now when your car breaks down and you are stuck somewhere. Peace of mind with the NRMA so you can have your car towed at minimal cost to your mechanic of choice. I'd rather hire a car for a few days as I reckon it's cheaper in the long run.

From the experience I have had with Lube mobile I would say yes their mechanics are very competent and efficient with the job that they do.

i wouldnt get anything done with LUBE MOBILE. i used them twice in history because i had no other choice, they make your car worse then before they arrived i believe, they fix or half fix one thing and wreck another thing or find another thing in the hope that u call them back and allow them to rip you off yet again. im sure its there only marketing strategy because mechanics are terrible service is worst ive seen, and marketing is plain corruption. so obvious for the dumb to see.

I called out Lube Mobile to check why I have a transmission oil leak ( a bad one) and they told me I need a new gear box. They will subcontract to a gear box specialist without any mark up and install a reconditioned gear box with new parts. All good except for the cost which is horrifying.....$4020. Is this normal? I just looked up Brookvale Spare Parts who are selling a used gear box for a Mazda 2 for $220. Am I being ripped off or is the labour making up the difference?

Sorry bud. You may have got the bad mechanic in their batch. They are little more expensie, they will have to work on this. From my experience, the work is professional and fairly priced. They do have to stop trying to find more work and concentrate on the job they have been asked to do.

Yes From the momment you call LUBE MOBILE you are getting RIPPED OFF, that phone call/booking just made your car worse and the start of many troubles for your car

Dont go anywhere near them with a Merc. I had them service my 1998 CLK over Christmas because my Mechanic was away. After thy finished, the car could would not start. They took it to their service centre and days later told me the timing chain and electronic clutch would need to be replaced for $7,000. I then had my car towed to a Merc specialist who returned my car the next day in perfect working order. The problem was a clogged Manifold intake. Lube Mobile are only very basic mechanics.

I completely agree to this. Dont think the mechanics know much on Mercs. I just am going through a very bad experience. The mechanic I dealt with is just a cheat and a rip off. He tried to rip off money from me in all different ways. I have towed my car away from them unrepaired after being charged $2000 and the mechanic trying to throw the blame on the part supplier because I procured the same part from the same supplier which the mechanic was trying to charge me $900 more

I paid about $480 for mine. Would recommend you go to a mechanic shop for a major service than rely on these guys.

I had no problems last year. The mechanic found something major was wrong with my car after i spent quite a bit of money going to several different mechanics.
He worked in 38c in summer and I am very very thankful for his professionalism and knowledge which is more than I can say for the two garages i took my car to.
So yes, anything major i think they are up to it.
