Reliable Car Mechanic/Garage.

Postby Loretta9 » Thu Jun 09, 2016 10:20 am

Does anyone know of a good, reliable Car Mechanic in the Agios Nicholaos area - East side preferably. Obviously prefer a recommendation from personal experience of having good service.
Thanks in advance.

I can highly recommend Kontaxakis, ask for either Manolis (father) or Dimitri (his son) At traffic lights coming from Heraklion (where you turn right to Sitea) go straight across and they are on the left at the first (new) roundabout.

I recently had a flat battery in Agios, phoned them and Dimitri came out to rescue me. When he arrived the car started ok! "How much do I owe you" I asked. "Nothing, I did not do anything" was his reply,

They used to be a Citroen main dealer but now service/repair all makes.

Or possibly closer for you, Loretta .. try Giannis, at the back of the big new Eko garage on the Piskokefalo road (about 500 metres towards Pisko after the Sitiea traffic lights.)

OK Mixos.... tried him he is Ok has done work before for me but this problem has baffled him. I am after another opinion on the matter. Which is ..... Jeep : engine cuts out when I stop at junctions or meet a steep hill. ???? On main drag at speed, no problems.
Thanks for your help. May see you around.

Another vote for Dimitri in Agios. He helped us find and buy our car, and scrapped our old one. x

Yes Peebee, apparently it is more common a fault than I thought and often a cure is not found for some reason.
Hudson, thanks for that, could you give a few more clues as to exactly where your recommendations is... I cant seem to picture it. Thanks.

Have you had the electrics checked? I had rodents attack the wiring loom on my Vitara on three occasions causing varying amounts of damage. Check under the bonnet for droppings etc.
