Good morning to all.


I have just purchased a car and just wanting to locate a good car mechanic (good English speaking if possible) for future reference? I purchased the car from a car showroom in Murcia and although they have their own mechanics, it’s too far in case I need any work doing.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated?


Thanks in advance

Danny

I got the car from a company called carsinspain and they range from cars that are luxury to ones that are a few years old. I got a Vauxhall 2008 right hand drive. They do all the necessary paperwork for you too and will also source the insurance for you, so when you get the car, you have everything ready to drive off!

Their cars range from €1,500 up €30,000, so it covers all types and budget!

The car I have in cyprus  is a 2008 fiesta and thought that was expensive  but nothing compared  to Spain but have been getting hire car and the last one was 600.00 pound not euro for 10 days plus the others I have had as well were about 200 to 300 each time that's pounds not euro so going to bite the bullet and hopefully  get one around 2 or 3.000 euro

I was in the same boat and at first, the car hire was reasonable, but then it increased to a silly level.

Mine is a holiday car that I leave here at the airport, so it will pay for itself over a few years, as I try & get over about 8-10 times a year.

There was someone that was selling a car privately, but I preferred to get one from a garage, as you will get warranty with it albeit it only 3 months, but you can extend if you wish.

Second hand cars in Spain last a long time with little issues due to the climate. 

There are quite a few under €2000 that they have in, but they do go quickly, so just keep looking and he will video the car and let you see & hear the engine, if you are back in the uk when you enquire about it.

Good luck and I’m sure you will find what you are looking for 👍

Oh ime sure I will just had a look might have to get some saving done and increase the budget  just slightly low on funds as we just bought in Spain and used all our cash well not all but a very big majority  as we did not want a mortgage so 88.000 euros later plus we went house hold shopping from 20/12/21 to 30/12/21 and spent another 6.000 euros and now a car just might tip me over the edge but we not there till March so have savings time and we both still work full time 😀 so sure we can do it just means the wife will have to drink less cannot say any fairer  than that ime sure  pps we in los alcazares  so you never know 😀

I can recommend James Whitehouse who runs Costa Coches, in Antas (next to López)

I take both our vehicles there.  Good service, reasonably priced and of course native English speaker
