Something not right?

Description

Guillermo is by far the most dedicated, honest and friendly person we met during our trip to South America. He is an excellent mechanic, as is his entire team. He had been recommended to us by another mechanic.
He really saved the engine of our van, when dishonest Chilean mechanics almost ruined it.
When we arrived at his garage, he immediately took care of us. He worked for several days on our van and came to work exceptionally on Saturdays to avoid having to wait. At each stage of the repairs, he contacted us. Its price was very, very honest and cheap.
We stayed in touch with him after leaving Salta because he wanted to make sure that we didn't have any more problems once we were on the road.

It couldn't be better....

Don't hesitate to contact him before coming: WhatsApp +54 9 387 591-2972

We would NOT recommended this taller even there is many good comments. The worst taller I have ever seen and we did some since 3 years of we travelling! We arrived for a noise on the transmission and they didn’t check where it come from. The two brothers are not working. They have one employee working for them. This worker is smoking every time during the job even below the camper!!! They was thinking I have to change one “croisillons “ and they broken it during the assembly, a new one. Our noise didn’t disappear… don’t go there. They wanted to close the garage 12 to 3 Pm. We insist that was only 5 minutes working more! So fortunately we could go out! And the price was extremely expensive for the country and for the bjo had!!!! So AVOID this taller!

Great great job. Trust Guillermo and his team, they are doing the best for the vehicule.
After that problems increases in another garage in Chile, we left his garage in a better situation than ever.
Much more expensive than small garage in south america, but it worth it, really if you want to drive in peacefull mind.

Shorty to confirm the good service: a rental customer in a pickup camper had a DPF (diesel particle filter) clogging that was solved as promptly as possible even not being of a brand present in Argentina (Mazda BT50, from Chile), all coordinated from the distance via Whatsapp.

Our Mitsubishi van broke down in Salta with an engine failure. It was a big job fixing the engine and replacing the valves, belts, seals etc. It's also really hard finding Mitsubishi parts in Argentina. Guillermo and his team did a great job. They updated us almost daily on the process.

I cannot recommend Guillermo and the team of mechanics highly enough.
We had an intermittent power serge problem with our vans engine when hot. Other mechanics had looked at the diagnostics and said that here was nothing wrong!
Guillermo and his brothers worked to diagnose the problem. Parts were not available in Santa but they found and shipped from Buenos Aires.
We we kept informed of what was going on and what costs would be all along.
We stayed for over 10 days to finally resolve the issue. Spending a night camped in the workshop as we couldn’t get to the campsite.
Once we had the issue resolved we were back on the road and have had no problems since.
Guillermo has contacted us several times since to check that we still OK.
He has been a great friend when we needed help.
He really cares and goes above and beyond
If you need some mechanical work done then get in contact and he will sort you out.

Amazing mechanic! I came to do a big check up for my defender and Guillermo and his team knows what they doing.
Very friendly and honest man, the price is by the hour and super fair, his brother Hernan brings you to the best and cheapest stores around for the different parts.
Opening hours are 9-13h then 16-20h, the kept me in for the night as i stayed 2 days 👍.
Can safely say it’s the best garage I’ve been to ever.

Guillermo and his Team are great and helped us really fast with our problem. We came from the Routa 43 and blew our upper shock mount on our Sprinter Van. First we had to wait 5 days to get a spot but then Guillermo called us and made it possible that we could get our problem fixed the next day. Turned out that not only the mounts were destroyed but also our dampers were done. We got all the parts within one day and all dampers were replaced. They also did a general check of the car, so that we can continue our travel. We are super happy with their service and work and can totally recommend this place.

Increible persona! Despise de gaver el mantenimiento del caro y de cambiar frenos, después de 300kms luces se encendi, ruido en las llantas y olor de qema. Directo, Guillermo me propongo de venir de salta hasta Tucumán (8 horas ida/vuelta!!!) el día siguiente a las 5 de la mañana!

Por al final, no un error suyo sino pierdas en el ripio!

Qué raro de ser así! Una muy buena persona que recomendamos a 100%!!!

Enfin une vraie équipe de professionnels ! J'espère avoir une vraie révision en France, puis au Chili. Finalement c'est ici qu'ils ont vraiment pris le temps de faire la maintenance de mon véhicule. Chaque problème a été étudié et solutionné. Hernan, le frère de Guillermo, m'a emmené en voiture pour chercher les pièces nécessaires, et m'a négocié des ristournes. Guillermo m'a envoyé des vidéos pour me montrer l'avancement, et a pris des nouvelles du camping-car quelques jours plus tard.

La meilleure équipe du monde !!!!

incroyable Guillermo. le joint de culasse qu'il nous a monté à lâché après 600km. il nous avait prévenu qu'une fabrication local pouvait être moins efficace qu'une pièce d'origine.
du coup, il nous aide à rapporter notre j5 dans son garage pour refaire une réparation avec des joints importées de France. il nous offre la main d'oeuvre pour une semaine de travail au total, joue le taxi pour nous et nous accompagné sur 200km lors de la remise en route de notre camion pour vérifier que tout marche sans que l'on perde de temps sur notre route.
incroyable Guillermo !!!
vous qui passez chez lui, n'hésitez pas à lui passer notre bonjour chaleureux. plus qu'un garagiste, il fait parti des amis de notre aventure.

Guillermo and his team are real experts when it comes to vans and 4×4. On top of fixing issues we had with a broken sensor he also identified what has been wrong with our cooling system for months and fixed it. what a relief.
we were waiting for a mechanical part, he helped us track it all over town.
then we had issues about a month later with another motor part, we contacted him on whatsapp and he immediately answered and remained available until we solved it the next day. Guillermo has gone above and beyond for us, I can never thank him enough.
he's been welcoming all along as well, I can only recommend his excellent services.

Really one of the best garages and guys we went to during 4 months in SA. Guillermo also speaks a bit of English which made the communication a lot easier.

They repaired A LOT of international campers already, a few if them are on his IG: inyeccionnorte

Therefore they‘re used to more complicated issues (like parts not being available in argentina etc). In our case they managed to repair a part instead of switching it which saved us bus trip to chile. Also they let us sleep in the workshop! Billing was very transparent, you pay by hour.

Highly recommended!!

Totally agree with all the comments! We felt super welcome and for the first time since 3 mechanics, our problems were really checked. Because Dodge Ram parts are not available in Argentina, he helped us finding the right parts we could order to Chile. He found a great temporary solution and made sure everything was safe again. We could stay the night in the garage.

I can only confirm the goods commentaries I had read on this mechanic. 1/4 de miles is the name!
I arrived from Bolivia with my Iveco 40 10 4x4. Big troubles from the engine.
GUILLERMO welcomed us from the first day.
He changed all the engine with oil pomp. He has goods contact in the city for spare parts and his brothers is as efficient as him to find them.
He changed the engine in 2 weeks1/2.
He is concerned ++++, he even came during the week end to go faster.
From Malaisia to here, he is the best and the most concerned !!!
About price, everything is clear. He tells the mechanical price of 1 hours and for spare parts, you pay by yourself at the shop.
I can only recommand Guillermo
++ !!
We could sleep in the truck in the garage.

It's true. Probably the best mechanic on the continent, but definitely the most dedicated we've met on our travels.

Wr were up on 3800m in San Antonio when we got a leak in break fluid pipe down by the wheel. Local mechanic up there couldn't fix it and even made it worse. We found Guillermo on iOverlander and called him. He talked with the local guy up there and suggested how to close off that leaking pipe at the ABS system and it worked. We safely got to the valley. Without that we'd have to get ourselves towed down.

Then, even though he was very busy, saw us the very next morning and with his brother worked the whole day just on our brakes and got it fixed.

We're still in touch and check up if everything is in order.

I'd really recommend Guillermo for really anything that you have to get done, as he speaks English, is very friendly and dedicated and will fix but any gear you might have (check his Instagram, it's cool)!

Do note that he charges by an hour (not per job). For my opinion, it's a fair price.

Had oil change, tire rotation, filters and general check up on our Ford F250. Parts aren't the easiest to find but every time we needed something we hopped in the car to look for it and listened to northern Argentinian rock music! We don't know how the prices compare in the area but we feel it was good value for money for the work that was done.

Report Check-In

Guillermo and his team are fantastic! Very skilled, super friendly and helpful people. On top of that Guillermo also speaks English. They understand cars, no matter which brand! The only reason why they might not solve your issue is the lack of spare parts in Argentina if the model is not produced in Argentina. We had problems with our alternator (Ford F-350) and after 2 days of driving around with his brother Ernan we found a spare part. They also found a diesel leakage which they fixed immediately and found out the calibers of our brakes were failing. Guillermo helped me with choosing the right parts online so we could make them ship to Paraguay (which is easier to import to). They let us overnight twice in their garage, which is the cleanest workshop I’ve ever seen.
We were the 153rd (!!!) overlander they repaired. Guillermo told me before the pandemic they only did overlanders (3-4 a week), and would like to return to that business now traveling is getting back to normal. Only too bad many ppl don’t leave comments on iOverlander.
I couldn’t recommend them more!

Can wholeheartedly confirm all positive comments so far. VERY friendly and competent.

We went to Guillermo, because we read these entries of this place to be the best car repair shop in Salta. We were there 4 days and our opinion now is, that Guillermo is the best car repair shop we found in 10 years travelling North- and Southamerica. His mechanics all know exactly, what they are doing. They work absolutely correct, are friendly and very helpful. We left this place really satisfied and our motorhome was in very good shape. They checked all parts they worked on very intensiv, including a computer diagnosis. They changed the wheel bearings of all wheels, they solved a brake problem, changed the liquids of the radiator and for the breaks. They found some oil at the Turbo and we realized, that the Turbo needs to be replaced. They found a new one and changed the Turbo, cleaned all hoses and the turbo cooler. For all parts they helped to find a cheaper replacement then the expensiv ones at Mercedes. You have a problem with your car, this is the place to go!

Guillermo and his guys are really very friendly, competent and helpful. They managed all problems we had and we were informed and documentated all the time. Even our clutch-zylinder they repared professionaly because this and other spareparts are not available here in Argentina for a Volkswagen vanagon. For all works they offered garantee and help on the road, if necessary. The price was very correct for all work they did. We would go back to this "taller" with pleasure if necessary one day. Also they are able to repair trucks, not only camionetas and the garage is high enough to get in. The correct address and phone number are:

First we went to the Land Rover spécialist with this electrical issue ( no light, no air cond, no light on Dashboard and impossible to close thé Windows)
The Guy said that It was too complícate for him and recommanded to go here
There is no Land Rover in Salta
Guillermo with his team mate found the wire which was in cause.
It was not an easy task as first you have to remove all the Dashboard and test all the wire
I give all the documentation with électric schema.
His teammate is really conscientious and didn t loose any screw!!

It s also possible to sleep here. Very clean
I recommend as It was not an easy job like changing parts
They had to use their brain and made it

We needed a lot of work because we’ve been driving our old Fiat Fiorino like a 4x4. We first stopped at another mechanic who wouldn’t give us an estimate until he disassembled our drive and suspension.... so we left, because once it’s disassembled, you’re committed.

When we arrived at Guillermo’s they took a good look then we went to the office where he listed out the possible issues and approximate price to repair each. He called his brother in la
w to translate to make sure we understood everything.

He’s had many Overlanders pass through and he knows what they are looking for... like... asking if we want to fill our water tanks before leaving.

At each stage of repair, they showed us each broken part and explained what it did and whether or not it needed replacing.

We arrived Thursday afternoon and left Tuesday morning. Over the weekend we stayed at the municipal camping. Guillermo had someone drop us off and pick us up there. We spent two nights in the shop... because the WiFi is good and the shop is clean.

The guys are skilled at their work and have a good sense of humour. They communicate well, even with the language barrier... but I reckon with all the Overlanders coming through now, Guillermo will be fluent in English before too long.

I think the work, communication, and honesty is some of the best we’ve experienced in South America. The prices were fair but not Peru-cheap (but also not european). You may be able to find cheaper but not better.

And just one more tip... if you pay in cash at the parts shops, you save quite a bit more than on credit card. The Western Union exchange rate is 10% more favorable than the bank rate right now. We didn’t believe it, but it’s truly the case.

We read on I overlander that Guillermo is a very good mechanic. When we had a problem with pur car he helped us in2 days while we stayed in a hotel in Salta.

Super nice and very competent mecanics! Guillermo, Franco and Hernan helped us fixing problems with our Mitsubishi L300. Although this car is not common in Argentina they were able to repair our rear differential, alternator and shock absorber. Clean big Garage and fast Wifi - you can camp in the garage! Very honest and fair local price for all the work. They really want to make shure to find the best solution so that you can continue your travels without problems. Highly recommended!

Report Check-In

Great mechanics as previously described. Guillermo and the team worked quickly and efficiently to first check all of my brakes, and rotate tyres. My rear differential had leaked all oil and was full of water and dirt. Full strip down, clean, rebuild and fill. Looks like new (see photos). Also steering bar bushels were loose. The part doesn't exist here so they took my part to a place to get repaired, and replaced. They also diagnosed and repaired an issue with my camper reverse lights. The work shop is clean, uncluttered, and very large. Well equiped. They have a car lift up to 4000kg. They allow you to sleep the night of necessary. Toilets and WiFi. 2-3 days work on and off for a very reasonable price. This should be your first stop with any mechanical issues. I doubt there's anything they can't fix, or get fixed with their knowledge of other people on the area. Highly recommended.

Wonderful person and excellent service, we slept there two nights. He is honest, savy, practical and has a ton of resources in Salta. He really cares and he gives you the best service he can. For us, he and his awesome team worked on our steering system (axiales de dirección) , the back brakes, and other little things that seem to go wrong on the road. Since Argentina has no Nissan vans, he had his guy repair the part like new. Nothing is impossible for Guillermo and if it is, he will tell you what to do... Which may involve driving to Chile!! 😂 .
