Customer Comments

"Can't recommend  First Gearboxes highly enough!  I have been going to First Gearboxes for over 4 years now and it is the only place I will take my Audi  to for six monthly services and any repairs. Darren is super friendly and welcoming. He clearly communicates with you about what needs repaired and will go the extra mile to help out and he is very reasonably priced. He provides great customer service  and completes work to an excellent standard. This is the go to place in Howick/Pakuranga."

Highly recommended!! Darren is the man!! Took my 2004 Ford Mondeo to him after I was quoted $4000 to get the gear box fixed after it lost all gears. Darren did the job for less then half the price and even cleaned my car. I would definitely go back to him in the future. Thanks again Darren

Darren was recommended to me by Pigeon Mountain Motors for servicing the DSG gearbox on my Golf GTI MK7, his service, knowledge and skills are truly 5 star. I will be recommending him to all of my friends and associates. Thanks Darren

 Darren Hughes from First Gearboxes was recommended to me by my very trusted Pigeon Mountain Motors staff. They said he was honest and reliable, and happily, that turned out to be just the case. He worked his magic on my car, the gearbox, to be specific, including things like exchanging the wiring loom, filter, gasket, and transmission fluid, and running a full diagnostic scan. Okay, okay, I copied that off the invoice, I have no idea what it means. The most important point is that I had a couple of other quotes and First Gearboxes was by far the cheapest, and my car's been going great since. It's so nice to get this blokey stuff done by a trustworthy company, and I'd recommend First Gearboxes absolutely. But that said, it is the kind of service you find yourself not really hoping to need again any time soon!

Fantastic service and a very genuine, honest mechanic. If you're looking for someone to service/do work on your car, I 100% recommend Darren. Definitely going to recommend him to others
