'Back in the day' repairing a vehicle only required a test light and a few spanners. Now days, however, this is not the case.
Modern vehicles have very complicated electrical systems. These systems are controlled by modules/computers (up to 80 per vehicle).
When a fault occurs in your vehicle (usually indicated by a warning light on the instrument cluster e.g. ABS, SRS, Engine Light etc.), it is normally because one of the control modules has detected an abnormal or missing electrical signal. The only way these faults can be determined is via the use of a "scan" or "diagnostic" tool.
These tools vary in capability from a cheap code reader (for the DIY enthusiast) to a more costly (for the professional workshop) interrogation and coding machine.
At European Auto Tech we are constantly investing in the latest and most capable diagnostic equipment to ensure your vehicles issues are diagnosed accurately and cost effectively.
OUR CLIENT FEEDBACK
We went there to get a pre-purchase inspection of a vehicle we intended to buy to travel around NZ. Shane and his wife are extremely friendly and the workshop is very well kept. They also have been very clear about their pricing and the time needed for the inspection, and have been kind enough to check the vehicle on the day we called even if they obviously were very busy. Unfortunately we ended up not buying the car because Shane found some potentially major issues with it. I would definitely use their services again!
Solid, reliable, and honest European mechanics. The best I've found in BOP, and will be continually used for years to come.
I would like to commend European Auto Tech (2015) Limited on their service and performance over the servicing of my Mercedes. At all times they act in a professional and friendly manner and in my dealings with them they have shown a high level of knowledge and expertise when working on these specialist vehicles. I can thoroughly recommend European Auto Tech (2015) Limited to other potential customers
Other garages had tried to rectify a fault with my BMW without success. One of the garages referred me to European Auto Tech (2015) Limited where the fault was quickly diagnosed with a high tech computer and the replacement part was ordered and fitted in good time.
European Autotech repaired the faulty mechtronic unit in my VW Passat. They did a great job, and I would recommend using them for any repairs on your European car. Car has done 2000km since repair and is running great
Best in Tauranga! Shane and his team are honest, does a great job and I would recommend his workshop any time. Your car will be in good hands.
