I cannot fault Ammstar Autohaus at all. Right from the beginning they were very thorough and explained everything to me. They were honest, quick, affordable and honestly perfect. I will definitely be coming back.

Great service as always from Matthew and Adam. I appreciate their willingness to explore effective cost-saving options and then sticking to the quoted price. Thanks again guys.
– Craig, Oakleigh South – Mercedes-Benz R350 – June 16 –
Customer support and the service team were very professional in their approach. Regular updates on progress were provided. Vehicle was delivered on time.
– Lyn, Balwyn North- AUDI A4 1.8T – June 16 –
I have found my new mechanic! From the first phone call Matt was a delight to deal with, it is so refreshing to talk to someone that is trustworthy and has such great knowledge. I immediately felt comfortable that Matt was going to look after me and he did not disappoint! He explained the repair to me in basic terms and was so professional from start to finish. He even gave me a call after the repair to make sure everything was okay. After taking my X5 elsewhere and being quoted 7k for this repair Matt did it for a fraction of this and it now runs like a dream. I am so happy to have found a business that I can trust and because of this service I will not be going anywhere else. I would not hesitate in recommending this business! Thanks again Matt, I will see you next service.

– Lyn, Bentleigh – Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI – January, 16 –
This is first time I have used this company, and the service from the moment you walk in the door to having your car giving a tidy up hoover and washed after a full service is nothing but excellent. More then happy to use them on a regular basis from now on. If only customer service could be that good in all places.

Ammstar Autohaus is a great bunch of guys who care about your car as much as you do. They fixed a series of problems that my dealer ignored without charging me and arm and a leg. Recently i had them inspect a new BMW E92 M3 and purchased it from a dealer as a result of their comprehensive checks. they guys have been great to deal with over the last 12 months and I will continue to visit for all my service needs.

My windscreen wiper failed (in the pouring rain last Saturday). I rang Ammstar Autohaus early on Monday morning, spoke to Adam who arranged, after a thorough inspection of the windscreen wiper and motor, to repair the wiper and replace the motor with a new branded one specific to my car. Thus I saved two thirds of the cost of a motor and wiper! Great.
– Barbara, Mentone – Mercedes-Benz C180 – July, 15 –
Always friendly and professional. Good value for money as well!
– Jonathon, Cheltenham – Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI – July, 15 –
Adam has always gone out his way to make things easy and always explains exactly what need to be done and the costs involved

Who knows your car best?

While you might think your selling dealer knows your car best, specialist workshops like ours get to experience all kinds of complex issues. As vehicles come out of warranty, people (just like you!) begin to search for an alternative to dealership servicing. Our systematic approach to diagnosis gives us an edge, allows us to learn quickly, and continually build upon our existing knowledge. The most difficult problems make us the best at what we do.

Problems?

We have solutions. Our qualified specialists find problems in the most efficient way possible. Our methods and diagnostic equipment help take the complexity out of difficult problems. We won’t just keep billing you diagnostic hours without you knowing, and in many cases we will cap our diagnostic billing hours to an agreed value.

Structure

Our service processes are streamlined and digital. All of our technicians service cars in the same way! We have achieved this by working only on a select few brands, refining the process and communicating it across all of our workshops through training and regular meetings.

Right tools for the job

Some repairs take specialist tooling and can’t be performed by any old school mechanic. We have the resources and tools to perform the task to specification.

Guaranteed

We believe in doing things right the first time, and by using only genuine or OEM parts we can ensure the quality of our workmanship. All of our repairs are covered by a 2 year / 50,000km warranty, covering you from manufacturing defects.

Strength

With three workshops across Melbourne, we have big buying power. We also have our own network of information sharing, and our knowledge base is continually growing. By working together, we can bring you high quality service at great pricing.

Expect dealer standards... and more

We pride ourselves on the quality of our workmanship, and take care in everything we do. Having been independent automotive experts for a long time we have developed our own structure and processes. We make sure we service the car to the specified manufacturers level, and beyond! We also take into consideration the age of particular vehicles, and look at other items we know are important.

What do people like you think?

Our customer’s love the service they receive when they find us. Most of our clients buy a new car and service at the dealer for a few years, before realising they are not only paying way too much, but aren’t getting the service they deserve! One visit to Ammstar, and you will be wondering why you ever returned to the factory dealers in the first place! Here is what some of our latest customers are saying…

Going green

While we keep our shop and your car clean, we understand how our actions affect the world around us. Our sustainability policy helps make us environmentally and socially responsible. We limit our printing, and do more things electronically. We recycle as much cardboard, metal and waste oil as we can, and dispose of hazardous materials correctly.

How much will it cost?

Have you ever received an invoice and expected it to be less? Know what you are paying for with our itemised quoting system. You will never arrive to collect your car and find we have performed additional jobs without your approval, or a particular part ended up costing more than we said. Our aim is to give you complete transparency.

We’ve got some skills, do you?

We never stop learning. We keep up to date with industry information, and regularly conduct our own in house training for technical staff. Are you a skilled mechanic with a passion for one of our favorite brands? If you are looking for a career with meaning and have an eye for detail we really should be talking. Please send us your CV.

Know what you are paying for

You won't get any hand written ambiguous invoice from us. All of our service and repair invoices are itemised, showing a complete breakdown of parts, labour, oils, GST and other charges. We can even email you the invoice to you before you have picked the car up!

You choose the extras

When we service your car, we follow a standard process. We will report back to you with what we find, and if we think there is something that needs attention we will provide you with an itemised quote! We won’t ever forget it is your car, and will only report to you the facts.

No upsells!

You won’t get any pressure selling tactics from us. We check out your car, and report back to you with our findings. If we find worn out, leaking or broken items, we will provide you with a full quote! We won’t be offering any unnecessary additional service items like oil and fuel additives.

Get the best price

We have lower overheads than factory dealers, source original parts from all over the globe and our loan car fleet isn’t being factored in to the price of the service. While we use the best parts and do the job correctly, we know you want great value. We also know what you expect from us, a nice clean shop, highly skilled technicians and excellent customer service.

Our oil makes the grade

Whether it be a Mercedes-Benz A200 or Audi RS5, cars of today have strict oil requirements. We only use high quality factory and OEM lubricants suitable for your car, such as the fully synthetic range from Mobil, including Mobil 1 0w40, X2 5w40, and the low ash Mobil 1 ESP 5w30 for modern diesel engines.
