Recommended mechanic in South Africa

Hi All,

We are going to be travelling around Southern Africa over the next 6 months and I need to find a reliable Toyota mechanic who can change the clutch in my 105 series Land Cruiser. Ideally in Cape Town or possibly Durban.

Any thoughts anyone?

Thanks

Nick

We've used McCarthy Toyota Tableview in (near) Cape Town, and they were helpful and did a good job (regular maintenance). We've also found McCarthy to be good in Durban. Many Toyota dealers in Africa are not interested in working on any vehicles other than the current (or recent) range, however both of these were good. If you're going to Namibia then Udo in Lüderitz is excellent.

There's a guy by the name of Johan Meyer who owns JB's Auto Repairs near the Cape Town International airport. He's regarded as the top Land Cruiser mechanic by the Land Cruiser Club of South Africa. His telephone number is +27 21 933 4247.

If you are in Lilongwe, Malawi, there are a few mechanics that can work on LC 105 series but you would be good to contact Constantini auto-mechanics. They have a proper shop and can get you sorted. The dealerships, as alanymarce posted, are not interested in older vehicle work, they just want to work on the new models under warranty. Plus, they are extremely expensive.
