A new generation automotive garage …

Cars are a big part of our lives. We rely on them to get us to important places safely and stress free. That’s why you need a mechanic who takes pride in their work. If you’re super fussy and want the most out of your car then Dodson Auto Garage is the place for you.

From humble beginnings working from his driveway, William always knew he liked running things his way. So in 2015 he took the big step of opening his own workshop in Mile End. Starting with one hoist and much needed help from his Dad Tony, it quickly grew to 3 hoists and employing 2 full time staff members.

The next chapter of Dodson Auto Garage has begun with our new home at 15 Maple Avenue Forestville. With plenty of room to expand we are continuing to grow an outstanding range of services.

Meet Will Dodson

Owner & operator

In 2002 Will reluctantly took his VW type 3 to a mechanic. He was so frustrated not being able to fix it, he decided to become a mechanic himself. As an apprentice he moved from workshop to workshop until he settled in and finished his apprenticeship at the Peugeot dealer. With his certificate he went out and learnt other makes and models with a stint at the Volkswagen dealer then a European specialist in the CBD. His passion for horsepower was met while working for a respected performance and tuning workshop. His ears were ringing from loud engines and Will took up an offer back at the Peugeot dealer where he could further hone his skills on the latest technology coming out of France. He soaked up as much technical knowledge as possible as he knew the next step would be starting up his own show. In 2015 Dodson Auto Garage was opened and he’s never looked back.

WE SPECIALISE IN FRENCH VEHICLES

William Dodson spent 6 years working at the Peugeot dealership. During this time he completed numerous Peugeot technician training classes and achieved the second highest level of Peugeot technician training in SA, qualifying him as a master technician. His skills are easily applied to Citroen & DS vehicles as they are both marques of the PSA group. Will has developed a passion for all types of French vehicles. Renault is the new marque we are growing our knowledge with to bring the 3 popular French manufacturers under one roof.

Owning and maintaining a French vehicle in Australia can be difficult however we have an ever-growing network of suppliers for sourcing parts. We keep a large range of service and technical parts in stock or we can quickly source what’s needed to get your car serviced, repaired and back on the road.

We subscribe to the latest technical information for Peugeot, Citroen, DS & Renault so we are always up to date with diagnostic and repair methods. We have 3 laptops with manufacturer specific diagnostic software such as DiagBox, PP200 and Lexia 3.

What our clients say

I have to say that the team at Dodson Automotive Adelaide is truly amazing, I drove down from Sydney in a van and was having some issues and called the office and the man that answered the phone was an absolute gentleman, understood I was in desperate help and said come on in and we will look at it, I got there and then met Riley the mechanic and the service I got from him was exceptional! I got my van back home to Sydney and I bet i wouldn’t have made it if I went anywhere else! I take my hat of to you Riley and the team for your understanding and really helping me get back home! Thank you! I am grateful beyond words!

Happy with service. Prompt and very good rates. Happy to have my Peugeot 407 looked after by Dodson Auto Garage. Thanks for all your help.

Anthony Muscat Avatar Anthony Muscat

Dodson Auto Garage provides a tailored personal service that only a small business can. Little touches like having the car cleaned and being dropped to work mean that I will never return to the dealership service again where price and customer service are lacking! The peace of mind that you're getting a by-the-book service from a mechanic who clearly loves cars is fantastic. I can highly recommend this business.
