Default Question about Sydney dealers

Hi guys, I'm currently pricing a Forester through a leasing company, however I'll have final say as to which dealer the car's purchased through and where I'll take it for service. Because of where I live and work, it's a much of a muchness where it comes from out of the following dealers - Denlo, Sydney City Subaru and Tynan. Does anyone have any stories, good bad or otherwise about these dealer? Happy for you to PM me if you don't want it on the forum for the world to see

I bought my Forry at Linfield & was very happy with both the price & the attitude of the salesman there.

I have had all of the services (accept one) done at Tom Kerr & have never had any problems. Also from what I can gather, they are a bit cheaper than some of the other Subaru "stealers".
Just remember that when it comes to booking your car in for a service, it pays to shop around.

Regards
Mr Turbo

I have all the major services and some repairs done at Tom Kerr also. I've only had one bad experience with them, but they admitted fault have have bent over backwards ever since.

Minor services I have done at ABC Tyrepower. They are very reasonably prices and have fantastic customer service.

I've now started to have minor repairs (CV's and the like) done with the NRMA MotorServe (Artarmon). I like the fixed price lump sum aspect they offer and the fact they dont hit you with extras...

That much Thats pretty good.

With 2 kids running around my legs, I hardly find the time to scratch myself let alone service my car

But, as I am now out of warranty, the saved cash can go towards more mods
