Warning: Bosch Diesel Electric Bethlehem

Post by stobi_de » 09 Mar 2015 09:53

This company is the best place, to destroy your car.

I went there to test my injectors and came back with broken cylinderhead, spoiled and leaking injectors, broken and cut pipes...
Costs of more than 20000 rand, which I had to pay. (And still nothing is working).
Warrenty? Nothing "Sorry, I do not know the problem. Pls leave the garage!"

I think these people know, that a german guy has no lawyer in SA.

Frank - sorry to hear.

Maybe you must come to Stellenbosch then. :confused: Mette's Auto Electrical - They are the Bosch agents and the owner is German - you can eat from the floor.

Warning extended to Bosch Diesel Electric in Otjiwarongo. Went in for low voltage, they replaced a belt and said all was good. I found it idling away in the workshop "charging". I got 5km out of Otjiwarongo and battery was flat. pushed on to Windhoek and had a autoelectrician discover the alternator was shot.

I think what we need to remember is that like most things is a franchise that is owner driven ....sometimes a bean counter buys a business and finds out is easter to pay a appy than a artisan with the correct knowledge to take your money .....it happens .....we need to report it to the correct people so less guys get ripped off :mytwocents:
