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 VW dealer then a European specialist. 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.

Always great service and we drove to Melbourne next day in 41C with no problems at all. Temperature guage stayed below middle all the way 😊😎

I bought a car with the β€œengine light on” but with a paper from this people that said that the car was checked, it was a problem from the catalytic converters that need to be replaced. But they said to the owner that It wasn’t a big problem and no need to be fixed. So after the purchase we took the car to the same place just to confirm that nothing was wrong. And they said the same to us , the car will be fine, doesn’t need to be fixed. So we didn’t do nothing and a few month later the car was overheated and now there is irreparable damage in the head gasket. When that happens I took the car to β€œmy cars” and they said the engine was damage. And they noticed a liquid in the engine that is used to β€œfix” the car in a cheapest way. Dodson never told me about a liquid. So probably they did this with the other owner, so the owner can sold the car easily.
