The purpose of your brakes is to ensure that every time you drive, you know that your vehicle and its brakes are safe in case of sudden stops. This is why we work so hard to not only repair and maintain brakes. But also to ensure that our clients are made aware of how crucial it is to have the brakes on their vehicle checked regularly.

A check at home with the help of Google may seem like the cost-efficient idea. But only a qualified mechanic can ascertain whether your brakes are fit for purpose and will bring you to a complete stop in the event of an emergency.If you suspect that your vehicle might be coming to a sudden stop slower than normal, or travelling even after you hit the brake pedal, it’s time to trust the automotive experts at AVR to keep you and your passengers safe.

  • Avatar Kassie O'Brien ★★★★★ a year ago
    When I moved to the area I chose a local mechanic based off Google reviews. Seeing that absolute car … More care had great reviews I gave them a go. Now I completely understand why they're so highly reviewed!
    A basic service is very well priced, and the report recieved at the end of the service outlines any further repairs or maintenance that would be required. Michael takes a significant amount of time to explain what needs to be done and why, and makes it easy for someone who isn't mechanically minded to understand what is going on.
    Courtesy cars are also provided if booked in advance which makes it easy to get around whilst your car is being service, and when you pick up your car it looks lovely as they do a complimentary light vacuum/clean.
    Highly recommend!!!

  • Avatar C B ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    I’ve been taking my car to Absolute Care Car for years and can honestly say it’s been the best experience! … More They’ve always provided me with a courtesy car when I’ve needed one. During the day, the owner Michael always calls to explain what needs to be fixed (according to what the mechanics see needs replacing or fixing) and he seeks permission to go ahead with anything falling outside of the standard service. It’s always communicated clearly when my car is ready. Upon pick up he takes the time to explain what they have done and what can wait, to be fixed at the next service. They don’t just fix things for the sake of it or because the log book says so. Which I really appreciate. The cherry on top is that they do a quick wash and vacuum of my car prior to collection. Absolute Car Care are affordable, genuine, honest and I’d recommend them in a heartbeat. Thanks guys!
  • Avatar Glenn Bruggemann ★★★★★ a year ago
    Always great job. Been going for years. Michael really looks after you.
  • Avatar Karleena Bannistar ★★★★★ a year ago
    If you want a trustworthy mechanic, then look no further. If you have made it this far into reading reviews … More of places, you probably really need these guys as your mechanic. Michael and Steve are fantastic operators and very dedicated to there quality of service. I was quite impressed when I came to pick up my car, Steve had the replaced part there to show me the work that had been done. I highly recommend booking with the team at Absolute Car Care.
