Description

Daniel Ojeda is an independent mechanic, who was (partly) trained by Toyota (certificates on the wall).

He runs a neat shop: clean, manageable, away from the pressures of the official dealership. Trust and honesty are important to him (and that's a two way street).

Pretty busy shop, but never chaotic. Daniel is very patient and takes time to show and explain what needs to be done.

I had made an appointment. arrived there at 9 in the morning. Daniel got to work right away. he checked everything and replaced the broken or faulty parts. reasonable price. After 3 hours of work, we could leave again. Daniel invited us to his house for dinner and we could sleep in his house, unfortunately we had other commitments and we couldn't stay. if you have any problems with your Toyota or just want to get it checked, go to Daniel.

Report Check-In

Did a regular check on our Landcruiser 80 Series. Daniel is very friendly and professional. Thanks for really good work.

Report Check-In

Can only add to the great recommendations by others before me. Did a regular service of my Toyota Land cruiser Prado. Cheap and quick. The car did not need any significant repairs, but having the confidence of a very thorough check up is important to me. I called by WhatsApp one day in advance and servicing was done between 4pm and 7pm the next day.

Report Check-In

Highly recommended! We came here thanks to all the good comments here below. We are heading south to Patagonia with our Toyota Previa, so we wanted to do a basic service (change of oil and filter) and a general check. Daniel and his employee checked everything in a very professional way, showing us everything they did (suspensions, shock absorbers, candles, all filters, A/C, lights, tyres...). Everything was fine, except one broken light bulb and the A/C filter which was in a very bad condition. Price more than fair, I wish I had a garage like Daniel back home!

Opening hours : 8:00-12:30 and 16:00-20:00. Better to contact him before going, as he can be busy. Daniel is a specialist in Toyota only.

Report Check-In

Daniel did an overall checking of our LC and changed the needed parts with Toyota original parts. He also checked our off-road trailer and fixed the brakes. As said before, he has a really deep knowledge of Toyota and has a real mechanical approach and not a "I change what I see" one. He is also very helpful and warmful with the family during the operation (access to WiFi, bathroom and A/C room). Your Toyota will be in safe hands!Muchas gracias perito Daniel!

Report Check-In

Daniel has a small but very clean workshop. He only services and repairs Toyota Cars. We visited him with our Toyota BJ 75 Landcruiser (Build 1987) because our 3B engine had lack of power and black smoke.
Daniel heard right away that our valves need some adjustments. We also wanted to change our injections Nozzles i brought with us as spare parts. This „Operation on the open Heart“ was performed by Daniel perfectly, trustworthy and for a very fair price.
The old Landcruiser runs like a jungster again!
He took a lot of time to explain the work needed and informed us via Whatsapp on all the mayor steps during the workday.
He has great knowledge of Toyota Cars in general and even knows the not so common 7-series Landcruisers well. Best Mechanic for Toyota in Mendoza!

Best is to inform Daniel some Days ahead because his Workshop is quite busy.

Report Check-In

After bad experience in Santiago de Chile, at another workshop, I came to Daniel's place. Immediately, the team took care of my request and after about four hours of work, we could continue our journey. The wheel bearings of our Land Cruiser HZJ78 have been adjusted here, the brake pads exchanged, oil change made, differential lock repaired - so it was settled. All necessary parts were available and original Toyota. At the end there was a list, which things he looked for extra - service. I am more than happy with the repair, service, price. And I am sure that it will be very difficult to find a comparable workshop in the area.

Report Check-In

We had a temperature problem with our Land Cruiser 100. We had Yacopini (official Toyota dealer in town) diagnose it and they came up with the official solution: replace anything that is remotely suspect, which is costly.

Daniel removed the radiator, sent it over to a specialist for cleaning, refilled the viscous coupling for the fan, and remounted everything (instead of replacing anything within sight).

Because the whole thing would take more than a day, he suggested a nearby hospedaje, where we stayed three nights. This gave him time to work our problem and still serve other customers.

He knows his (Toyota) stuff - filling a viscous coupling is not something anyone will do. It's the knowledgeable approach, opposite of "just replace everything".

Had I met Daniel before, then I would have asked him to do the regular maintenance (instead of Yacopini). Just because the one-on-one relationship gives me confidence that the job is done as well as he possibly could (I never met the 'official' mechanic at Yacopini, but only a service clerk).

Unlike Yacopini, he serves no free espresso, though :-) .
