“My car was in dire need of a service but having recently relocated to the Gold Coast I was unsure where to go. A work colleague suggested I take my car to Steve at Motive Mechanical and with good reason! Steve took great care of my car, was straightforward and took the time to explain things to me. Highly recommended!”
“Extremely friendly service and a knowledge that far surpasses previous mechanics used. Very reasonably priced and a high quality of work. Will definitely return for future services! Recommend to all.”
“I love the friendly welcome that I get every time I go in! It feels like I have known them forever, and my car is always in top notch shape because of the boys! The business manager is super nice too!”
“Steve has recently done some performance work on my V8 ute. I gained awesome horsepower and the ute drives unreal. was not as expensive as other quotes I got. Will definitely recommend him for V8 mods. Thanks Steve.”
“My husband and I have taken all our vehicles to Steve over the past 10 years and have found his work to be consistently reliable and at a reasonable cost. He has been able to service any of the models we have had, advised us regarding any vehicles we have considered purchasing, upgraded our 4WD, repaired our campervan, rewired the old boat and repaired the motor, and provided us with confidence that our vehicles are safe to travel around Australia. We highly recommend Motive Mechanical in Ashmore.”

“Steve is the best mechanic ever, my car never lets me down because Steve lets me know everything it needs each service, and he always does it for a good price. I’ve had my car with him for years, and always will because he is an expert and he doesn’t rip me off with unnecessary extras. Get Steve and you’ve got the best, most honest mechanic on the coast. I wouldn’t trust anyone else!”
