Excellent service at a reasonable price. Am just annoyed with myself that I persevered for so long at my local Mercedes Dealership and didn’t come to AustStar years earlier.
I love my Mercedes. I was very happy to leave it in the good hands at Auststar motors Bulimba for its servicing. The staff were attentive and friendly, and my car always drives like new.
After years of getting our MB’s serviced by MB dealers we decided to give AustStar a go and wow the difference in the cars was amazing plus the number of things that needed doing that were not done by the dealers was shocking. Definitely recommend the AustStar team.
Services: Transmission, Auto engine diagnostic, Brake service & repair, Oil change
I have been getting my various Mercedes serviced by AustStar for many years and the service has always been excellent. In fact I have recommended them to many friends who now also use AustStar. The Service that Theo and is team provide is far more personal and satistying than I used to get from the big Mercedes Dealerships who are so disappointing.
I would recommend Theo and AustStar to all Mercedes owners who want to be sure that their car is treated and serviced properly.
After experiencing appalling and very expensive ‘service’ at the Mercedes Benz dealership at the Gold Coast, a good friend recommended AustStar motors. I now travel from the Coast to Brisbane and have my vehicle actually serviced professionally and reliably at a reasonable cost. As a female, it is also very much appreciated when you are not treated like a gullible idiot and soft target for unnecessary charging. Thanks to the team at AustStar Motors.
I’ve been using Theo and his family business for 8 years honestly and integrity is hard to find now a day you will not be disappointed as their service and work ethic is second to none
Over the last 15 years os so, I have relied upon the great people at AustStar Motors to keep my Benz safe and in great working condition.
Throughout this time I have always had confidence in their expertise, and in the quality of their service.
From the first phone call I felt I was valued as a customer. When I traded up to a used Benz, it was AustStar who inspected the vehicle on my behalf.
When repairs were necessary, Theo and the Team frequently provided both options, and pragmatic advice.
I cannot speak highly enough of how this organisation conducts its relationships with its customers.
I moved across to AustStar Motors because of your great reviews and your competitive price, I wasn’t disappointed at all. If you could somehow take care of Mercedes warranty work instead of me still having to deal with Mercedes Benz that would be fantastic.
Highly recommend AustStar Motors! So easy to deal with, great communication and customer service and they don’t charge through the roof like Mercedes!
My car had a clunking noise in the rear right wheel arch area. For the past 5 months the noise became more constant and louder but could not be diagnosed and repaired by a few workshops. David at AustStar was very friendly and very knowledgeable. His diagnostic was efficient, and he explained diagnostic method, potential cause clearly to me with confidence. The repair work was then scheduled in quickly with parts ordered. On the day of repair, David’s communication was prompt and transparent. Repair price was fair and very comparable to other workshops. The issue was fixed in a single attempt at AustStar. I will surely bring my car for future service that I have more confidence in AustStar than Mercedes workshop.
The service was great from start to finish. Much better value-for-money than going to my nearest Mercedes Benz dealer. I liked how they didn’t push things that could be delayed for a few more months. Unfortunately there was no loan car available on the day I booked, which would have made for a perfect experience.
I first came across Aust star motors (the benz shop in those days around 30 years ago.
Andrew & Theo are experts and know these cars back to front. I have had all my Benz’s from new onwards serviced by them. They do a more through job then benz dealers , they get it right the first time with parts and workmanship being less expensive then MB dealers.
It’s their service and advice which makes them a valuable component to any benz work you might need to have done, their honest and quality work sets them apart from anyone else.
Our cars came back to us running better than ever. Even the Mercedes dealerships never had either car running as well as they are now. Great job team.
Your Service Manager Was brilliant. He hunted down an impossible to find “coil” and had my car finished in record time. Brilliant!
AustStar are very thorough and efficient, and what sets them apart is their responsive personal service. It is refreshing in this day and age.
Theo and his team serviced my 1998 Mercedes E430 for more than twenty years. They are very knowledgeable, skilled and helpful. Theo is a great person to deal with and I appreciate the way my vehicle has been cared for over very many years. Thank you AustStar Motors.
Very customer focussed staff with technical abilities to be envied.Great value for money in everything they offer.Recommended highly. Aston Martin DB11 have Mercedes 4L Twin Turbo motors these days.
Very professional company from start to finish. The diagnostic results was outstanding with a successful outcome.Would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.
Full engine replacement .. the whole team are totally professional with exceptional customer service… Theo ensures you get the best possible outcome for you and your vehicle and I highly recommend Austar motors … personally it has been a great experience dealing with Theo and his team and will definitely be completing all of my vehicle servicing needs with Austar motors moving forward…
I have been dealing with AustStar Motors for over 20 years. There passion, dedication and professionalism is zero to none. I would highly recommend this company to anyone seeking outstanding and reliable service.
The whole experience from booking the car in for its service, through to the drop off and picking up the loan car, and the pick up of the car at the end of the day was excellent.
As I had recently purchased the car from Victoria and driven it too Brisbane, and being some 14 months since it’s last service, a major service was required, and would also give me a good baseline for any other work required.
The service was carried out promptly and the invoice showed the work completed as well as what was also required to bring the car up to 100% with quoted costs.
The price for the major service was a pleasant surprise.
Dave, the service advisor, went through the invoice with me, explaining what work needed to be done straight away and what work could wait until the next service, as well as some handy tips if I decide to DIY some of the simpler jobs needed.
I am more than happy to recommend AustStar to service your Mercedes, whether it’s a classic, and there were a few beautiful older examples in the shop, a higher mileage example of a well used older model like mine, or a modern example of the marque.
The whole team are helpful and professional in how they go about their business and it is refreshing to see service of this calibre.
It is always a pleasure to deal with AustStar . I have had my car serviced here for many years and the service is fantastic. Staff are friendly and go out of their way to help and work is very good.
Would highly recommend this company.
Let’s start with the complimentary coffee voucher from the fabulous receptionist when dropping my car off. Let’s move onto saving me money only doing work that was required. Outstanding business model, the customer service, attention to detail and cost savings were Brilliant.
Had my 7 year old C200 serviced there recently and it is running like a whole new car again. Terrific mechanics, great front of desk service and reasonably priced. Will get many good years out of my car under their care.
First time customer and very impressed . Rang with an urgent issue and the understanding reception team member fitted me in the next business day – The technician David inspected the component involved, explained the issue and didn’t charge as it was a one off problem with a door lock that didn’t recur . Will be taking my vehicle back for my first out of warranty service in the future. Great to see an independent business succeed with such outstanding customer service.
Thank you very much and thanks to David for the very well informing conversation about my car.
Kathy and I wanted an older Mercedes Benz but needed to know that we were buying a reliable vehicle that was “Rock-Solid”.
We found one at Austar Motors… A pre loved CLK200. The list of things that Theo insisted on prior to our purchase was extensive. (Even the tyres). He is meticulous and certainly presses the “longevity button “..As I am a Mercedes Benz club member, I am very particular about my vehicles and won a trophy with our new 2007 CLK200 at the annual “Concourse D’Elegance” a mere 2 months after our purchase.
The team was always very honest and open about what they were doing, the costs and there were no hidden costs. Great service and highly recommended.
I felt inclined to write a review after my experience yesterday with AustStar Motors. I took my vehicle to a dealership for my service last year and was left underwhelmed with my experience and much lighter in the wallet too. I knew I wouldn’t be back there the moment I drove away. From the initial phone call to AustStar, where the person was generally interested in my call, to offering a loan car, to patience with my questions, it was just brilliant to be met with outstanding customer service! Thank you to Theo for coming out to show me a few things about my car once I returned to collect it; it was the fact you didn’t feel bothered to do so nor felt time poor that stood out for me. As a consumer, I felt general care by your team, leading to confidence in your service. Thank you for standing out from the crowd. Now you’re stuck with me! 😝
I had to change car brakes and battery urgently due to my travel plans. All MB dealers had waiting period of weeks/month even for urgent needs. Called AustStar, receptionist was very accommodative, she checked with mech team and gave immediate appointment. Fixed car with original parts at total cost lesser than quoted by MB dealers.
The team at AustStar Motors should be called Five Star Motors.They rescued me from having no choices to saving me from 5 weeks not having car to fixing problem in 2 days half price genuine part. My new ISM gear shifting module works like a Swiss Clock on my S350 W221 2009. Thank you heaps!!
Simply Legends Theo and Andrew and the team are just so good My 1977 300D is running like a German clock – thank you Team.
10/10 for the team at AustStar. Had my car serviced here for the past few years and they really do a great job at maintaining my C200. Couldn’t ask for better service. Special mention to Chris and Dave for explaining the work and costs involved so well. I’ll see you guys when my next service is due.
Took 3 hours 30 mins(8.30am to 12pm) for E class B1 service. Unfortunately my car hasn’t been washed but still happy with their customer service and treating my car well. Got a call before they started their job, clearly explained what they would do to my car and how much it would be. The price was good. And thanks for the courtesy car.
Theo and the team are amazing! They serviced my C300 Coupe for a B1 service for over $750 less than Mercedes quoted. Not only that when I let them know I was having surgery and couldn’t drive, they picked the car up for me and dropped it off. I am a customer for life these guys (and gals!) are 10/10. But I need to give them 11/10 as my car came back washed!
I have used AustStar motors for 8 years. Theo and his team offer excellent service, particularly picking up my car for servicing and leaving me his car to use. Highly recommend.
Great experience with the team at AustStar. They’re professional and friendly, and loved the car wash and access to the loan vehicle. Highly recommend!
Had an oil leak that every man and his dog has tried to fix. These guys nailed it in one hit and were an amazing. Service outstanding and very reasonable price. Highly recommend!
Very professional and friendly staff. Repair was carried out as quoted and on time. Price was very good. This was the first time we used AustStar Motors and will be taking our Mercedes there for future services.
Cannot recommend AustStar Motors highly enough. Theo has been working on a 1968 280SE Coupe for me. His plethora of knowledge when it comes to classic Mercedes is priceless – all the advice offered has been both highly professional and caring.
We recently had an issue with our ML250 so we took it to another Mercedes workshop in our area. As the particular issue in question isn’t uncommon with this model we were given a quote to repair at the time of dropping it off. The price then somehow doubled later in the day by the time it was inspected in their workshop. This prompted me to get a second opinion and quote so I found AustStar Motors online and spoke to owner Theo. I explained the problem with our vehicle and his vast experience was obvious from the very start. As I had the call on handsfree at the time even my wife who was present said afterwards that ‘this guy really knows his stuff’! Confident that we had made the right choice we had our vehicle towed to AustStar and end result was one very happy customer with an invoice at nearly half of what the other workshop quoted. Thanks again to Theo and the team at AustStar Motors, we will be back!
Great mechanic. Knew exactly how to fix the water and gearbox leaks. Finished when they said they would and were reasonably priced. What more could you ask for?
Work undertaken very professionally, on-time and on-budget. Pricing was clearly quoted, and was significantly less than main dealer prices. Quality of work was great. Will definitely use AustStar Motors again.
I had a bonnet cable that wasn’t latching, I called and Austar to see if they could have a look at the problem. Car was booked for the following day – I dropped the car in at 8am and had a call by 1230 saying it had been fixed and there would be no charge as it only took them 15 mins to sort. To say I’m impressed is an understatement, these guys know Mercedes Benz and boy do they know customer service!!! I’m new to the Mercedes Benz family and it’s safe to say I’m a customer for life for Austar Motors. Thank you Theo and your brilliant team.
Great service, never used Non Mercedes dealer garage before, but thought as car now out of 3 year warranty would give them a go as a friend had recommended them. Main dealer wanted $2300 for front & back brakes, AustStar quoted $1500, then called to say I only needed front ones done, also I was 1st time customer got a 15% discount on labour charge, so only cost me $747! Professional from start to finish, everything was explained from booking to completion of work. Would highly recommend this company.
I have been getting my car service with AustStar Motors for over 7 years now. The customer service is always consistently excellent and second to none. Theo and the team are so helpful, friendly and nothing is ever too much trouble for them. They are timely with their service and what I also especially like is that I always get an upfront honest assessment of my car before any work is being done. It is a family run business and they treat their customers like part of their extended family too
Exceptional. Exceptional customer service; staff; knowledge and quality of work. I took my CLA45 AMG here after the manufacturer service warranty finished, knowing that the Merc dealership would charge exorbitant prices for the service. Considering it is a high performance car, I have to admit I was slightly hesitant to take the car to anyone but a dealer; however, Theo (who I understand is the owner) was excellent and knew the car better than anyone. I immediately knew I was at the right place. He told me exactly what was required to be replaced, as opposed to simply replacing what the manufacturer listed (e.g. the air filter) and asked for my approval prior to incurring any additional costs – Completely transparent. Highly recommend.
Firstly I would like to thank the team at AustStar Motors for all your help, cant say enough good things about these guys they really helped me and my partner, I will keep it as short as I can but really think it is important to let the public know how much these guys did for us we are not from Brisbane and live 10 hrs to the north we were traveling home and had some dramas with the new car, these guys had cars flowing out onto the street but assured us they would have a look n maybe try shuffle things around and they did!! Not saying this is normal practice because they have a schedule they have to stick too but we where so impressed with the care and compassion they showed us, “gives you a little faith in humanity and businesses in the city” we left that afternoon with the car running better then ever, if it wasn’t for these guys we wouldn’t have kept our deadline getting back home to work the next day!! Thanks guys!!
This was my second visit for the service of my car. Great genuine and very friendly customer service. Very reliable and honest MB car service centre.
Excellent customer service, Good works done to my Mercedes-Benz
Just had my car serviced and fixed by the Aust-Star Motors team yesterday. My car hasn’t driven this well since I bought it and I also wanted to commend the team on such high-quality Customer Service. Thank you so much!
Extremely friendly and honest service. Would definitely recommend as an alternative to the dealerships and far more reasonably priced. The whole experience from booking to dropping the car off and collection was so easy and straightforward. The team are extremely courteous and professional which alot of the dealerships could definitely learn from. You can tell that this is a family business that is taken pride in.
