Advice on Tijuana repair shop

Postby JeffBrockmeyer [OP] » September 4th 2018, 11:29pm

Has anyone here taken there astro/safari to Tijuana to get work done. I live in San Diego and need a bunch of things done to my 2000 safari 4x4 and was hoping someone out there could recommend a good place to take it too. Every time I go down there a see a million astros driving around so I know there is a lot of good mechanics down there. Hoping someone can help. Thanks guys!

Can't comment on Tijuana mechanics, but if it's something you can do yourself, that would be a whole lot cheaper and you get to learn as well ;)

thanks astrowill. I usually do a lot of the stuff myself if I know what the problem is. But There is something going on with the air system that needs diagnosis. as well as transmission stuff. So just trying to get a diagnosis and repair on the cheap. Every time I take it somewhere in the states I end up paying a thousand dollars.

I hear that. Maybe you can post more about these issues and you could get some ideas.

I dont have a specific recomendation but i used to live in SD and i knew of a lot of people who would get work done. Price of labor is cheap, but the have a tougher time getting parts than we do state side. So you probably want to supply the parts. Hope that helps
