Defoe Tyres  020 7249 9757
  • I would like to highly recommend Defoe Tyres in Defoe Road, N16. They now do car repairs, servicing and MOTs. I have always found them to be incredibly friendly, helpful, efficient and trustworthy. They are also extremely reasonably priced. (AW, Jul 2015)

Minas  0208 5330410
  • Minas runs an excellent garage – just on the side of Hackney Downs. Park View Motors 1A Downs road its in the arch under the railway bridge next to the petrol station. His knowledge on all makes is encyclopaedic. He opens from 11:30 till 9pm.  They use all the latest diagnostic kit – but are very down to earth. (DD, Oct 2016).

Michael at Hackney Service Centre  020 8533 2786
  • Two people – Steve and Rachel – separately have recommended Michael at Hackney Service Centre, Mare Street, Bohemia Place, London, E8 1DU,  (a google search turned up that there was more than one down Bohemia Place to be careful to go to the right one). Steve says he has used them for years; they are extremely reliable and trustworthy. Rachel says he has always done her proud and he won’t do work unless it is absolutely necessary and always checks with her and offers to keep the bits and show her, she also says the bill is always reasonable.

E & E Lusardi  020 7254 2881

  • I found E & E Lusardi (18a Englefield Road) great for a full service of my brother’s car last week. Labour charges were about 10% higher than I found for a couple of the other recommendations but was happy to pay it. I’d already had a recommendation for the same garage and can see why she goes there. They are very helpful, non-patronising and willing to give you their time to explain things.(Nick Perry, Mar 2018)
  • Vicki recommends: E&E Lusardi on Englefield Rd (off Kingsland Rd). Vicki says she has used them for a couple of years now and she trusts them not to rip her off. They’ve also helped with a minor thing and not charged her.
