Mechanicbase (1) is an automotive website that brings you expert advice on auto repair, service, maintenance, guides, reviews, videos, and other car-related information.

Mechanic Base was founded in 2018 when our owner Magnus had worked as an automotive mechanic and diagnostic technician for over ten years, and he found so much insufficient information online when looking for car repair advice.

Therefore, he decided to create a website where experienced mechanics and people with no automotive knowledge can find free, reliable, and accurate information about car repairs. We specialize in European cars such as Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, and Mercedes, but we also have an excellent knowledge of American and Asian vehicles.

With our long experience in the automotive field, we know how expensive it can be to repair your vehicle, especially at repair shops. Therefore we want to share our automotive expertise from the experience we gained through the years.

What Makes Us Unique?

There are many car repair websites out there, but what makes us unique is our extensive experience and expertise in auto repair. We are not just some car-interested guys with a bit of basic knowledge of different car models; we are professional automotive technicians that know about every little part of a car.

We have also gained experience through many years of troubleshooting vehicles with real-world experience, which is why you can trust our advice.
