Since opening its doors Rhodeside Auto Tune has maintained a strong and loyal client base with many clients remaining with us for over 20 years. Our client base consists of families, many of whom now recommend us to their children as well as a broad cross-section of the community.

In order to provide personalized service, our clients are able to discuss their concerns and requests with the mechanic who will carry out the work, thus ensuring continuity of care of their vehicle.

The best way to ensure your vehicle remains trouble free is to have it serviced regularly by qualified staff at Rhodeside Auto Tune.

We provide a ‘lift home’ service, within the local area and use only the most up to date equipment in the workshop. The mechanics are all qualified and are required to carry out ongoing training to knowledge of the latest vehicles up to date.

Clients are also provided with a reminder service when their vehicles are due for a service to ensure no unforeseen problems occur. We also attempt to accommodate all clients’ requirements.
