More About Us


Awesome team here, reliable and trustworthy. Have been a regular for 1 1/2 years now, never been disappointed.


Massive Thankyou to Julian and crew for helping me out today!!!! You don't understand how much it meant to me to have someone listen to me. Very very good team!


Hello Manuel, Carol & all the team- Just a note to thank you for fixing the DSG issue in my Golf R. It has not gone into neutral once since you diagnosed low oil level in DSG box & replaced oil & filter. In addition it's generally changing gear much better & is not so hesitant when starting from standstill. A great job which saved me hundreds by not going to VW dealer. I shall refer all my friends with euro cars in Brighton & even give them directions on how to get to Thomastown!


Have had car service, other general and more specific work done on Peugeot here. Never had an issue with work done or price. They have spent time identifying intermittent fault and charged very fairly. They also do all types work on cars not just transmission. I find their service to be honest and friendly. Other friends have been there also and have been pleased. Would not hesitate to recommend.


I took my car there expecting it to cost me $2500 and it only cost $480. The most honest mechanics I have dealt with as I don't know anything about cars. Will highly recommend them.

From the get go as i was sitting on the side of Glenferrie Road with the RACV guy calling me a tow truck (because my clutch & slave cylinder had shat itself). I've had fantastic service (particularly from Carol who I'd dealt with from initial phone call to completion) and quality workmanship done by the team! I did express urgency in the repairs as I'm leaving to go to Sydney first thing Monday morning and this was recognised. I had my van fixed the very next day & ready to go. So for that, thank you team! Highly recommended! :)

After having my car serviced at a dealership in Richmond, I found they had refitted my baby seat with cable ties! After conducting a massive call around the weekend before xmas, the only people willing to assist were Manual Automatics. Friendly staff and amazing service... I will be back again soon, thank you so much.

Sarah Baker

Thank you Manuel, Julian & the entire team for the professional, friendly care we received when recently purchasing our new ML270 Mercedes at Manuel Automatics. We can't speak highly enough of the level of service & effort you showed in making the car perfect for us. You all went above & beyond expectation & we're thrilled! Will definitely bring the car back to be serviced regularly at your service centre. Thanks again!

Norm & Elizabeth

Just had the automatic transmission on my Land Rover Discovery 3 serviced again at Manuel Automatics. Land Rover told me the transmission is a closed system & unable to be serviced, but these guys do all the necessary maintenance quickly & easily. I can always notice the gears change smoothly, both up and down, when MA have worked on it.

Ian C

Just like to thank you for your help with my Peugeot. It was like a breath
of fresh air to be treated so well. I shall certainly recommend your
services to my friends. Kind regards Ian

Ian R

Dear Team, Thank you for the work done on my VW. I left your premises feeling very refreshed at the level of courtesy and professionalism, thank you so much. I look forward to a continuing relationship. Best regards Barrie.


Been going to these guys for almost 15 years, always had fantastic service. Honest, hardworking mechanics, strongly recommend!

Jovin Singh

Manuel and the guys did a great job fully servicing the automatic transmission on my Discovery 3 this week. So pleased to have found a reputable company to do the work minus the exorbitant prices I have been charged everywhere else I have ever had it serviced. They offer great advice & only complete the work it needs. The last time I had the vehicle serviced I paid $1500 & was told the oil needed to be flushed through twice. What a joke! Manuel personally tested the car & I now know exactly what it needs moving forward.

Ian C

Thank you to you and your staff for a great job on my van. It must have been losing power slowly and I'd not noticed. It feels much better now. Thanks again... it's a bit further to go but I have a feeling it may be worth it!


I took my Landrover in for a service to Manuel and the team and what a difference, the car is running like new! Never disappointed when I deal with these guys. Keep up the good work.


Very nice & professional people to deal with. Used their service a couple of times & every time all was done well & in time. Very happy.


I had my Mercedes Sprinter which had a vibration problem at about 90km/h. Manuel Automatics was the only transmission workshop that was able to repair my van.
