I recommend SAS engineering for A/C repairs if one is around Nugegoda or Kohuwala.

In my experience they have never overcharged me after installing unnecessary parts nor have they messed up anything with any of my cars over the years, it has been almost a year after my last service and it still works like a charm.

I think they are far reasonable in price compared to most major names in the industry, and have been in operation well over 30 years in the same location in front of the Kohuwala cemetary entrance

First of all I must thank The Don for starting this thread. This thread will hopefully through time will be able to concentrate all the scattered information into the topic.

1. I have a Nissan March AK-12. I bought it in November last year. All this time the vehicles we have had were maintained by the company my father was working in. As the March was a personal acquisition I had to personally look into its maintenance and I did not have any previous experience to rely on. Through talking to people I found that there is this guy called Ravi Perera at No.595, Kandy Road, Bulugaha Junction, Kelaniya, just 1km after the Peliyagoda Flyover on the left hand side if your going to Kelaniya. Contact nos are . 0722-142143 and 0723-444444.

He specializes in Nissans and actually do not accept other brands of vehicles unless the person who owns the vehicle is a long standing customer, friend, relative etc.

His technical knowledge is very good especially as it is centered around one particular brand. Parts are cheap and his work is quality. Prices are very reasonable. The bottom line is that in my humble opinion if you have a Nissan he is the guy to go to for major repairs. Not knowing him much those days I have left my vehicle with all the documents and there has never been a scratch or anything out of place.

Cons.

As with any mechanic going to him has its slight flaws which if not pointed out I do not think would be a complete account of him. When you are good you will be stuck with so much of work sometimes more than you can handle. This is one disadvantage going to him. That is at one point of time he will be having so much of work. So you will have to give him two to three days maybe even a week to repair your vehicle unless it is a minor issue.

As I live in Mount Lavinia it is quite a hassle to go to Peliyagoda to fix every minor issue.

So my next question is are there any good garages that members could recommend me from the Mount Lavinia area to fix maybe minor issues that may crop up during the day to day running of a vehicle?

2. Headlight Cleaning

March Beatles are notorious for discoloration of their headlights. There was also water leaking into one of my headlights. Found a great place to do headlight cleaning and re-beading of headlights.

Randunu Head Light Cleaning - No.57/B, Papiliyana Road, Nadimala, Dehiwala. Contact Nos. 0776 273 477, 0714 255 322.

If you are looking for a repair/replace in following areas, I could recommend Eranga - who works in "Abiramy VTA Car Care Centre" @ Divulpitiya, Boralesgamuwa 

- Any suspension related work, including.... ball-joints, rack-ends, brake hubs, brake caliper, hand-brake
- Engine related: timing belt change, water-pump, tappet cover

I have been working with him for 3 years for any above specific issues and always he nails it perfect. Also, good thing is he is very calm while doing his work. The vehicles I had him, Mitsubishi Lancer, Galant.

Engine tune up - Auto lovers, Gampola. 0779213155. Highly recommended for tune ups as I've done mine a year ago. Did a great job. Cleaned the MAF sensor, throttle body, spark plugs, inlet manifold, intake valves, fuel injectors & egr. It took almost 6 hours to do the job & it cost half the price wt they charge at Toyota Lanka for a tune up.

Repairs - Wasana Care, Welisara. A good place for all minor repairs. I've repaired my suspension systems & changed the engine mounts, spark plugs & check engine light issues. Very reasonable pricing with good work.
