I've known Alan through Scouts for about 10 years. He is the sort of mechanic who gives you options, the limp along repairs, the comprehensive repairs and all those in between. If you want an honest, reliable and all round good bloke, then Alan is your man

Alan has cared for our two Peugeot cars we have owned for over 20 years.We 'found' him after some disatrous early experiences elsewhere and have never looked back. He has been meticulous and, where necessary, inventive in his care of firstly, one family car we sold after 20 years and secondly our new one.We are happy to follow him to his new premises in Thornleigh, as we are sure that we won't find anyone as reasonable or as good at his job.

This is to certify that I have had my cars serviced by Alan Bourne for the last 10 years. I have always found Alan to be reliable and extremely competent and efficient in his work on the cars. He has an excellent knowledge of the working of the motor and diagnoses the fault immediately. The car always works well after his repair or service. As well, Alan is always pleasant in manner and easy to deal with, and his charges are reasonable. I would recommend Alan to any motor vehicle owner requiring service or repair to his or her car.

I have been taking my 1989 Ford Laser to Alan Bourne for servicing since purchasing it in 2001. Alan has been an excellent mechanic, keeping this old car running smoothly for the past 5 years. I heard of Alan's business through positive 'word of mouth ' from friends and family. Alan is very flexible in his appointment times and offers to fix my car while I wait in a near by cafe, or gives me the option of leaving it for the day and returning in the evening. Alan has always had my car ready for me on time and running smoothly. Alan's work is reasonably priced, and always informs me in advance of the approximate price of more costly repairs . Price is an important factor for me as I am a full time student and Alan is always looking for ways to save me money without losing out on quality. I feel Alan is trustworthy and knowlegeable and I have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone looking for a mechanic. I previously lived 15 minutes form Alan's business and have since moved to over an hour away. I am now travelling that distance so Alan can fix my car 2 - 3 times a year, as I believe he is an excellent mechanic and it is worth the effort.

My wife and I have known Alan professionally for more than 10 years during which time he has serviced and maintained our cars. We have always found Alan to be fair, courteous and efficient person to deal with and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking for prompt and reliable servicing of their car.
Charles & Maureen H , Killara
My wife and I have been customers of Alan Bourne for over 10 years and during that time, we have found Alan to be a very competent mechanic. He has shown himself to be extremely trustworthy, reliable and honest. We have had both our cars serviced by Alan during that time and a number of our friends have done so as well. One incident typifies Alan's dedication to his customers was when the radiator on our Ford Falcon failed on a Friday evening when we were going away. Alan sourced a new radiator and had us back on the road by 11am on a Saturday.

I am very happy to recommend Alan Bourne of AB Car Care - he has been taking care of the family's aged Peugeot 505 for the past 6 years and more recently our Subaru Liberty. We have always been happy with the work Alan has done and the charges he has made for the work; he is honest, careful, knowledgeable and very easy to deal with. I appreciate the fact that he will discuss matters which may require attention rather than just saying that it must be done
Pam B. , St. Ives
Alan Bourne has looked after our three cars for many years - for nearly 10 as a mobile mechanic and in the last 2 years at his workshop in Thornleigh. We followed him to Thornleigh because we felt we could trust his work and advise. Naturally we have no hesitation in recommending him to anybody
Keith C , St.Ives
I have known Alan Bourne for approximately seven years. During this time ne regularly serviced our Subaru Impressa and old Ford Cortina. I have found him to be very reliable and to do an excellent job. I have also found him to be very good at diagnosing and fixing problems, an important matter in the case of our old Cortina.

Alan was recommended to me as a skilled, honest and relable mechanic in 2000. Since then he has been a saviour to my family. In the years since 2000, I have owned up to 4 cars at once, one for myself and 3 older cars for each of my children. Two of those cars I bought from Alan the other two were given pre-purchase checks by him. Alan has regularly serviced and repaired all of these cars. This has allowed our family to run 4 old cars safely and with minimum expense. I have complete trust in Alan Bourne's skill and workmanship. He charges fairly and honestly at all times. I believe our famili'ys relationship with Alan has added substantially to our quality of life. I am so pleased that I found Alan, and I am delighted to write this note of referral in the hope that many other lucky people may benefit from his help in keeping their cars safely on the road at a reasonable cost.

We have used Allan Borne and AB Servicing for the maintenance and repair of our two vehicles over the past 6 years. Wehave always found Allan to be efficient, honest, hardworking and professional. Allan pocesses a vast knowledge of vehicles, which could only come with experience. We have never experienced any difficulties with any work he has performed on our cars. Allan performs the servicing instead of the dealer because we have the utmost faith in him and feel comfortable with any work that he performs or recommendations he suggests. He has always performed in the promised time frame and at a very reasonable price. We do not hesitate in providing this reference for Allan on this basis and would highly recommend him to anybody wishing to utilise his service for their vehicles.

I was first put in touch with mr.Bourne several years ago by my Father, for whom Alan had worked for many years. I have been very pleased and impressed by the standard of work done and his professional attitude; he has kept my car in perfect condition and is always friendly and informative. As well' he found a wonderful second -hand car for my son to buy. Knowing the car was restored by Alan has made me feel doubly confident when my son is driving by himself.
Andrew H , Beecroft
My wife and I have been customers of Alan Bourne for over 10 years and he has regularly repaired and serviced our vehicles in that time. He performs his mechanical work with diligence and care. Most importantly he has shown himself to be an honest person - an essential quality for a mechanic. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alan to other motorists seeking a reliable and economical mechanic.
Beverley G o.a.m. , Pymble
I have been with Alan since 1988. At that time he was with the NRMA. I was always impressed with his knowledge of cars and his ability to diagnose and correct any problem that faced him. Alan has always serviced the various cars I have owned. He is always willing to go to any length to provide the work needed. He has also advised me when purchasing a new vehicle.It is very rare to find someone with his mechanical knowlege and his willingness to help at any time. I can honestly recommend him and his work to anyone.

Salt Family , St.Ives
Our family have had their cars serviced by Alan Bourne for over 20 years and since he has moved his business to a workshop at Thornleigh we have continued to use his services. In all that time we have had a very courteous, reliable and competent service and at very competitive prices and all going well will continue with him for the foreseeable future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you do wheel alignments and balancing

Yes we have an accurate Servex laser type 4 wheel aligner and an off car wheel balancer. We do trade wheel alignments for our neighbours including 4wd setups following suspension modifications.

My transmission oil is old and dirty can you service that?

We have a special auto transmission flushing machine that is connected to your transmission and the total system is flushed out and new a.t.f. fluid added. Where necessary a new filter is also fitted. This is suitable for many common cars. The usual drain and refill proceedure in a scheduled service only removes old oil in the sump - typically 4 litres. Our machine changes all the oil in the system - usually 8 to 10 litres. We can also use cleaning agents and conditioner.

P.O.A

Do you sell tyres?

Yes we keep a range of Kumho  tyres in the more common sizes for our customers. If we need to we can order other sizes in within a day. We also have access to the GT Radial range of tyres. Both brands perform well and are good value for money .
