    Any Recommended Mechanic/Shop in HAMILTON?

    I have searched but I can't seem to find one. Other than Honda, any suggestions please? Someone who does a top job and does not charge an arm and a leg, a reasonable price that is. . .

    Nostalgia Motors, off Kahikatea drive on Wickham st, good guys, and a slightly cheaper hourly rate compared to Honda lol Research Motors is good also.

    Just basic, adjust clearances, check for codes. I am aware that almost any reputable shop can do it, but I don't know who is "reputable" here in Hamilton. Jtune is a bit out of the way.

    Haha yeah they diagnosed it but they don't have an oscilloscope to investigate further but at the moment it looks like a bad case of 98-02 Accord ECU syndrome lol

    Motorvation I think they are called (formerly michael tuck motors) on Masters ave.

    I know there is a honda backround there, cant vouch for their work however.

    And while your car is in their for work, it's a short walk down to Hillcrest High for a perv. Win/Win.
