#1 RAM Automotive, Coolum Beach
A big pat on the back for the boys at RAM Automotive for ranking #1 on our Top 10 Mechanics in Sunshine Coast list!
‘RAM Automotive is your local Sunshine Coast mechanical workshop’, states owner Matthew Katterns. ‘I run a pretty tight ship here, and we stand by our motto of Quality and Safety First.’
The team at RAM Automotive specialises in mechanical and electrical repairs on all vehicle makes and models, including servicing of new vehicles under manufacturer's warranty. They also look after batteries, air conditioning, auto electrics, tyres and roadworthy certificates.

#2 Midas Maroochydore, Maroochydore
Andrew Janes leads a top-notch team of qualified mechanics at Midas Maroochydore. They can be trusted to look after your vehicle's log book servicing, brakes, safety inspections, tyres, exhaust, suspension, and general under-car repairs.
Andrew and the team have built an outstanding reputation for clear, open communication and delivering on their promise that no work will be carried out without the customer’s prior approval of costs..
‘Our workshop includes 4 service bays, and we have 5 fully qualified technicians ready to look after your vehicle as if it were their own pride and joy’, says Andrew. ‘The workshop is open Saturday mornings, to cater for busy customers who work on weekdays.’
‘All service, repairs and parts carry a national 6 month / 10,000km warranty. We also offer a customer drop off service up to 5km away, and a loan car can be requested when booking a service’, he adds.
I had a pleasant experience dealing with Joel from Midas in Maroochydore. One of my main complaints about car service workshops over the years is that they always promise to call you with any updates BEFORE they start working on your car. Then they don't. One of the things I really like about Midas Maroochydore is that their communication is really good. They keep you informed every step of the way. Their work is good quality and the car is ready when they say it will be ready. Joel and the other staff were lovely I highly recommend! E.S
#3 Procheck Automotive, Caloundra West

Was greeted cheerfully and given a courtesy car. Very happy with service. Price was competitive, and they went above and beyond to make sure the experience as pleasant as possible. G.L

After having put three of our vehicles in for service and repairs we have found Carite Autos to be quick and easy to deal with. Boz and the team are very friendly and helpful. Good and honest, A1 mechanics. R.H
