Kubwa Central District Mechanic Village

It is located along Kubwa Byazhin road, few stone throw from Central Market Kubwa towards Kubwa train station.

Mechanics here, pride themselves in their abilities to repair Japanese cars and format all dysfunctional parts into factory setting. As bogus as this claim is, a good number of them are good and honest. The cost of repair is fair, considering that they go to Zuba to procure spare parts to fix your car.

Apart from Japanese-Toyota, Honda, they also fiddle with European cars, especially, German machines and French Peugeot. There are also those that fix Innoson, Ford and GMC.

Like mechanics all over Nigeria, they prefer to be addressed as automobile engineers or motor doctor.
