We'll be settled in Darwin for the next few months after comming up the west coast. A great drive and experience, but the cruiser is showing some signs of wear. I'm looking at doing the brakes, bearings and just a general service.
Can anyone familiar to the area give any recommendations at all.
Many thanks

I was in Darwin for a while a few months back, had brake issues on the 80 series, the pads were low and a caliper was sticking causing her to pull one way. Wasn't sure if I'd be up for a new caliper, at $3-400. Also, needed it done in a hurry coz we were heading bush a couple of days later. These guys were very helpful and fitted me in even though they were booked out for 2 weeks. They could have fitted me up with extra cost I didn't need, but when I picked her up they said calipers fine, just needed new pads. It seems that most good 4WD guys in Darwin are v. busy, I guess coz everyone drives fourbies up there.
Their price was right too, pleased to recommend them.

We were in Darwin in July this year and had a basic service done at Hidden Valley - can't remember the exact name but they are a Repco service agent (so you get a 10% discount if you are an motoring org member) and they seemed to do a good job. Bloke at the site next to me at the van parkalso had his cruiser serviced there & was happy.

Hi Troy
I would second this. We had our troopy serviced by Phil's boys in august and they were great. Also they are in the cbd so you can find plenty to do while you wait.
