Good Honest Mechanic in Riberas

Recommended Posts

Finding a good car mechanic is as important as finding a good doctor or dentist.

I have found one, Carlos Escalera. He has worked on my car twice now and I am happy with the work and the price.

Carlos will give you a price when you drop off your car and a time when it will be done. Both times I had him work on my car he held to the price and the pick up time.

He gives you a printed receipt and he takes credit cards. Carlos also speaks very good english.

Multiservicios Automotriz - Escalear, Ave, Hidalgo #44-B, Riberas del Pilar - cel 33 3440 2412

My wife said it was the cleanest garage she has ever seen both in the US and here in Mexico.

Second the  motion.  Had him do a bunch of work including full brake job on my CRV.  Brakes are better than when I got the car.  Very prompt and very reasonable in cost.  Will definitely be using in the future.

 I like Felipe. We had an oil leak and it was only a washer that needed to be replaced under the oil pan so he didn’t take us for an expensive unnecessary ride.

Ditto Escelera. Been dealing with them for 11 years.

Do either one of these mechanics have the equipment to run a diagnostic test?  I'm looking for someone to run the diagnostic test that relies on a computer system that links to the vehicle's computer processor, sensors, and microchips, logging any problems or issues present. And can reveal existing flaws including problems with the exhaust, transmission, oil tank and other systems. Thank you!

Probably your best bet for that is to go to the appropriate dealer for your car brand in GDL.  You are really talking about an inspection.

Carlos can tap into your computer... He did some electrical work for me last week... Excellent service!

I would think most of the garages Lakeside have a simple OBD2 scan tool. You can pick them up for less than $50 US at Autozone.. They will read any existing faults or previous ones stored in the computer..  They may even have the more advanced version.  For around $100/120 US you can pick up something an Inova OBD2 Digital scan tool that will give you real time data while you drive, which comes in very useful if you have an intermittent problem like I did...

I have been going to Escalera for years they manage to keep my 19 year old van running like a top.

I bought a a real lemon from a very shady secondhand car dealer in Guadalajara. I know.....  dumb...  The good news is Carlos Escelera did a diagnostic and helped me to spend as little as possible to get it running safely.  He’s honest, he knows his trade well, and I would highly recommend him.
