Client Testimonials

Hi Franck,

It's been a couple of weeks since we had our car into you for a thorough service, and I thought you would like some feedback on the outcome.

The car has been running beautifully since we collected it, and my wife has remarked on several occasions that it feels "very smooth" to drive. We wanted to be sure that the car was prepared for the return trip to Melbourne over Christmas, and we certainly have no doubts following its time in your workshop.

It was distressing to discover that the previous "services" our car had experienced with another mechanic were far short of BMW-approved standard, and we are comforted in the knowledge that you have restored our precious BMW to its optimum level of performance and safety. We shall be back!

Thanks and have a great Christmas.

Given the type of car I have (Renautl Clio V6 - 1 of only 2 in Australia), I am very wary on who I allow to work on my pride and joy... Fortunately, I located Franck at  Gosford European Car Services, who from the start was very professional and extremely knowledgeable of European cars, particularly Renaults.

Franck and his team provided a service that was beyond my expectations and completed the job in good time with very reasonable rates. 

Renault Clio V6Franck's enthusiasm was also a refreshing part of my experience with GECS.  Even with the 3 hour round trip to ECS, I will be sure to always visit Franck in the future - highly recommend!  Thanks again mate.

Dear Franck,

I'd just like to write a quick note and say thank you for your help with regard to the Jaguar XKR. Your approach to customer service is outstanding, and your honest and open communicatino provides a level of trust that is admirable.

The Jaguar has been one of those cars that always needed attention. Even with it's various problems you were always willing to help out.

It's a great feeling to work with someone that i'd now consider a friend, not just a mechanic that's servicing my car.

Thank you my friend.

(Just a note that since this testimonial Mr Smith has sold his Jaguar and has purchased an Audi RS4 which he now brings for servicing to us with his BMW X5)

"We have known Franck Donniaux for over 10 years and have always found him to be an excellent mechanic.

Franck has been servicing our cars over this period and his work has always been very satisfactory, so much so that we still take our cars to Gosford European Car Services even though we have moved to the Southern Highlands. We've had our Peugeot Mi 16, Ford XR8 and Toyota Twin Cam serviced at his workshop and have always found that Franck's passion for cars has been reflected in his work.

Franck is a hard and industrious worker who has built up a successful workshop in West Gosford. Over the years we've know Franck we have become friends and are happy to recommend him to anyone."
