About Us


Cairns Car Diagnostics, part of Cairns Car Shine is owner operated to ensure the highest quality of work is being performed on your vehicle as we want to see you returning to us every time you want any work done.

With many years of experience in the automotive industry, I was around at the beginning of the computer age in cars when they started to become highly electronic, I have a background in electronics and adapted well being one of the best in the field in the area as a lot of motor mechanics back then had a very hard time catching on.

We are not mobile diagnostics, you will need to bring your car to us onsite, this way we can do the best job possible using all the equipment we have onsite that is not easily portable, so we can do a better job.
