    **INFO** Owner Recommended Garages

    Finding a garage capable of working on your Range Rover can prove difficult. So, I’m asking you – the owners – to help compile a list of Range Rover friendly garages which you have used in the past.

    Please copy this format to make life easy for me to compile the information:

    Re: P38a Owner Recommended Garages Arizona

    I would like to recommend two that I and several other owners have experience with in Arizona.

    Location: [North America]
    State/County/Region:Arizona - Tucson
    Name of Garage: Falcon Works
    Phone Number: 520-294-3572
    Contact Name: Alan, Bill, Stephen
    Full Address: 5603 S Palo Verde Road
    Web Link: http://www.falconworks.net/britold/brit.htm
    Facilities: [Testbook/Machine shop/alignment/spring conversions]
    Any other comments: [Independent that really know Rovers, including Series models and Jaguars too. I tried to get them to try out the Arnott GenIII's, but they like to either stay with factory or springs]

    The second one is in North Scottsdale, a part of the Phoenix area.

    Location: [North America]
    State/County/Region:Arizona - Scottsdale
    Name of Garage: Rover Techs
    Phone Number: (480) 998 6617

    Web Link: http://www.rovertechsaz.com/Home_Page.html
    Facilities: [Testbook/All new equipment/nice facility]
    Any other comments: [Independent that really know the newer Rovers, they just started their business two years ago and came from decades of working for the two major Rover dealers in town- (we have three!). The mechanics are real sharp with the factory training, knowledgable about electronics and they both earned a good living from P-38's]

    Both of my recommendations are based on my cash money investment in their services, I have been to other shops, and in keeping with the spirit of this thread will not mention specifics.

    I've used these guys since owning the P38 and they're top rate, always good service and reasonable rates. Always willing to help. Highly recommended. They can handle all Land Rover models, the owner races Bowler Wildcats too in Off Road Championships so they know their stuff.

Labor rate on basic stuff about 95/hour and they have all the facilities to full service your rover. Harry (the owner) is a great guy and very honest and easy to work with. I had them put my air bags in on the P38 and calibrate the computer, and some other services. Great shop. The also fix my lotus.

    I have not taken the rangey down to them yet. So far they have been extremely helpful over the phone and on one occasion they took the time to talk me through a job i was doing myself; their advice was spot on and at the very least demonstrates the right attitude to fellow owners (they own and drive P38's).
