"Where do I start? These guys are fantastic! I have lived in Europe, America and most states of Australia and I think I will go as far as saying CDS is the most honorable, dependable and efficient mechanics I have ever been to. I have a Nissan Navarro and have had to go to CDS around 4 times now this year, for no fault of their own, (Navarro owners will understand) and each time they are consistent with their outstanding customer service, in-depth knowledge and structured and detailed plan of action. Honesty goes a long way in the mechanic Industry, so I would like to thank you as a company and for your companies reassurance and adaptable process. I would like to shout out to Joel and Dan, and especially Mick in the office who has been an actual hero! If you are looking for a mechanics not just in Cairns but in Queensland, these have to be your guys, hands down. Thank you so much 🙏"

"Wow! Was recommended to these guys after a 2 year ordeal trying to get a simple diagnosis. After seeing multiple places and having just about everything diagnosed as needing replaced I was about to give up. Cairns Diesel Service sorted the issue with a thorough inspection and gave me a complete diagnoses and rectified the issue. They were completely straight forward in the process and explained everything to me without treating me like I was ignorant. Highly recommend these guys if you want a mechanic who is knowledgeable, straight and provides quality service. Thanks CDS!!!"

We provide services for all passenger vehicles, including both petrol and diesel engines. This includes 4WDs as well as light trucks.

Yes! While car dealers may try to make you believe otherwise, you don’t have to take your car back to them for servicing. Going to an independent servicing and repair shop will not affect your vehicles warranty.

Despite what your dealer may say, or the impression you get reading the logbook or warranty terms, you’re legally entitled to shop around for the best servicing deal without voiding your manufacturer’s warranty (note: the rules are different for extended warranties).

We understand it’s not always an accessible service, so we will travel to Regional Far North Queensland and surrounding areas for your off-road DPF and emission solutions

Travis has travelled up to Weipa, down to Mackay and all the regional towns in-between to repair our customers machinery.
