I'm looking for a good mechanic or service center who can solve a number of issues with my 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe. I live in Abu Dhabi so something in Mussafah would be good, Dubai is okay too as long as the issues can be fixed properly. Not a fan of Juma Al Majid for a number of reasons their long wait times and ridiculous customer service being the main reasons.
A quick list of the main issues that need to be addressed:
AC compressor has become weak, needs replacement Recently replaced shock absorbers (<10,000 km), car rides lower than normal ever since, feels bouncy on mildly uneven roads and bit unstable around corners. Humming sound when going around roundabouts, braking, slowing down and during gradual acceleration. I suspect wheel alignment. Car jerks when putting the car into D or R from Park. Feels like the clutch is not properly engaged. Initial acceleration feels sluggish for the past 10,000 km. Sunroof motor requires replacement. Noisy door closing sounds of both front doors. Both rear door hinges need replacement. Some small electrical issues, requires some fuse replacements. Thanks in advance for all your suggestions.
I want to buy some tools, where to go in the UAE?
Quality: Between home and professional. One time buy, but not daily use.
looking for the following:
- Torque wrench (up to 200 Nm)
- Jack stands, 6T
- Grease gun
- Floor jack, one for at home, one to carry with me (not too heavy) maybe one that suites both?
I’m thinking to go to Dragon Mart, sure I can find everything there, but would like to hear your advice/ opinions.
Due to some unforeseen situation we like to switch the drive to Maliha area instead of Sweihan. Rest everything as usual.
Apologies for last minute change and will definitely do the sweihan route next week IA.
Meeting time: 11:30 PM, convoy will move sharp at 11:45 PM
Where: Adnoc Petrol Station Maleha Road

As promised after my two weeks break, will offer something really exciting for all experienced off-road drivers at Carnity. So what better than Sweihan adventurous night drive in the month of July when we have some well experienced night hawks in the convoy now. Thanks to Rahim bhai teaching in last few drives to break their fear of leading, I think this Sweihan night drive will hone their skills even more with tall rolling step dunes. They are difficult to enter due to their height, and one can only access them through "steps" strategy. Once on top they are fun to drive as all big dunes are inter-connected and offer broad ridge to ride and kick your last drop of adrenaline.
P.S. This is real Sweihan area drive and not Nahil area what we did in March. This will be quiet a few notch above Nahil dunes.
For newbies, I will post something equally exciting in next week for 13 July 2017.
