Mechanicbase (1) is an automotive website that writes about auto repair advice, guides, reviews, and other related car information. Mechanic Base was founded in 2018 when our owner Magnus had been working as a mechanic and diagnostic technician for over 10 years, and he found so much fake information on the internet when he was looking for repair advice.

Therefore, he decided to create a website where both experienced mechanics, auto repair shops and people without any car knowledge at all can find free and correct information to repair their cars. We are specialized in European cars, but we also have very good knowledge about American and Asian cars as well.

We are not just some guys interested in cars with a little basic knowledge about different car models, but we are professional automotive technicians who know about every little part of a car. We have also gained our experience through many years of troubleshooting cars in the real world.
