Where in Melbourne for trustworthy RWC?


Hello all,

I'm moving to Melbourne from Brisbane and hoping someone knows of a trustworthy RWC mechanic that won't do the typical Victorian thing when doing the RWC inspection?

Someone who cahrges the $80 odd dollars with only actual faults highlighted.

Took me ages to find a mechanic in Brissy that didn't rip you off.

Cheers,
Mike

I thought that is what a RWC inspection is. You pay $80 and they give you a list of items that failed to pass.

Likely won't get a RWC in Vic for $80 any more. More likely double at least

There's a difference between actual faults and imaginary faults so they can either be a pain or screw more money out of you.

I've come across many a garage do this sort of thing and then get very uncomfortable when you get technical with them and they realise you know about car mechanicals :)
