In the summer of 2023, my 11-year-old Range Rover had engine damage and the repair at the authorized workshop was significantly more expensive than the value of the car. The question was whether to repair it or not and I decided to have it repaired by Solak. It is now January 2024 and my car is running without any problems and I am very happy! The repair, the collection, the service and the contact persons were super!!!! I can only recommend the company and the very friendly and competent advice and service! Great price/performance

We chose Solak Motors based on the reviews and are very satisfied. The work was carried out properly, as confirmed by a VW employee, and the contact was always friendly.

I don't even know where to start!

I was warned from many sides before "such companies" ...... "always the same scam" wanted to persuade me ......... I followed my gut feeling and the reviews and was not disappointed .......... and my doubters were proven that there are not only black sheep in the automotive industry!
With me, the vacuum pump had seized, consequence, timing chain torn, although top maintained machine, as was also confirmed to me by H. Solak.
The price from eBay was not to hold, with the current energy - and fuel costs but also quite understandable, no company must work inflationary.
A phone call with Mr. Solak has then also a clear and clean picture, it followed promptly an offer that I confirmed, all times cheaper than a replacement engine or comparable vehicle with questionable maintenance condition! That was a Saturday shortly before closing time and on the following Friday, the car, probably 500 km easy, was fetched as promised in the morning, with handover protocol, photos, etc.! Not by an Eastern European collective transport, you do not want to accuse anyone of anything 😉, but by an employee of Solak Motors, with a vehicle and trailer of Solak Motors, I would say that creates trust.
That much was to do I knew by the phone call, but I had asked times🙈, somehow you squat on coals! Wednesday after, on 27.9. I was informed of the successful test drive! Since we went away Thursday for a few days, we have Monday 2.10. agreed to pick up. Train ticket booked, from Bavaria to Bielefeld ne nice route🤣, thanks to DB super fight price 1st class, with wife, paid less than a tank of gas and by H. Solak personally with our car in Bielefeld picked up at the station!
Already at the start I noticed immediately that the engine runs again top, actually even smoother, more harmonious, quieter and more powerful than before the damage! My wife on the back seat noticed exactly the same! Mr. Solak has us then still something about the positively noticed care condition of the machine, the good injectors etc. and tried NOT to us defective injectors and / or turbochargers! The rest was a formality, clean workshop, neat, tidy office, each vehicle has there ne own folder, proper invoice with warranty received and the hint that an oil change after 1000 km would be a good thing after the repair ............. Date is already!
The novel must somehow find an end ............. I would definitely call again immediately at Solak Motors, if what is with the machine! Clear recommendation from me!
I am not allowed to post personal contact details here, but I have no problem to confirm this personally!
With the advice not to drive "KIckDown's", the car has driven us then the 500 km absolutely great back home😀.
However, I would still have a small request, which has nothing at all to do with the work line! When orders come from so far, people are often attached to "their sweetheart" would be a few short status reels on Instagram, or similar a nice gimmick to shorten the waiting time and report on the status. I know, that's also a few minutes of work a day, I realize, in this day and age but also at the same time advertising in their own cause.

We and our X5 say thank you very much for this great work!

Had a chain break on my 530d e61. Repair took only three days. Engine runs without problems, which I can say so after 160km drive home (more details to follow). Unfortunately, the tailgate or the panoramic roof must not have been closed properly, because after a good 130km the PDC & level control failed. Speedometer & tachometer were also not i.O.
Stopped and looked for the battery because of voltage problems and lo and behold everything wet ! Is not a reproach and does not diminish the qualitative work of the company. But it is annoying because now I can pick apart the trunk to dry everything. Hopefully the control units survived. But in general I am happy with the engine work.

Recently, the timing chain on my BMW 3 Series broke. On a tip, I turned to Solak Motors. Within just two weeks my car was picked up and repaired in over 400 kilometers. The service as well as the advice including the price is outstanding. I am incredibly grateful and can only recommend this company to everyone.

Without this company I would have had to buy a new car, as BMW does not repair engines but would only replace them as in my case for 16,000 euros.

My car E92 335d BJ 2011 had a timing chain crack at 281000km. The joy of driving which BMW advertises, does not refer to the timing chain, which does not require maintenance! BMW themselves do not repair an engine. 10000-12000€ should cost a replacement engine including. On the Internet I stumbled on SOLAK Motors and I am directly the good reviews in the eye including the clear website. So I thought I'd give them a call. After the great phone call, I had the offer within a few hours, this was given directly. Solak Motors came to pick up my car from my garage and I was able to pick up the car after 1.5 weeks. I went by train and was picked up with my car at the station. Could then drive home. I live 400km from Bielefeld. The engine purrs like before the crack and I am highly satisfied with the work and customer service. I can recommend this company without hesitation. I hope that I could convince with my evaluation uncertain Motorgeachädigte.

I am the first owner of an Audi A5 TFSI, which from the beginning has consumed 1l oil per 3000km. The car has driven 83000 km and has always been serviced according to regulations at Audi. In the end the "Vorsprung durch Technik" consumed 1l oil per 300km. Then I called Solak Motors and it became possible what seemed impossible at Audi: the car no longer consumes oil. Thank you very much Mr. Solak!

In March of this year, I received the shock news of engine damage to my Golf 6, 1.4 tsi. Since a vehicle change was out of the question, the only option was an engine overhaul.
After the first searches in the closer environment of Magdeburg for a repair, disillusionment occurred. Either the price was disproportionately high or a repair was refused. So I tried my luck with a more extensive search in the neighboring states. Here there were a lot of engine repairers, but on closer inspection they turned out to be very shady.
With this knowledge I finally arrived at Solak Motors. Initially, there was a certain skepticism whether I would be better off here than with the first. However, my doubts were quickly dispelled in a telephone conversation. The consultation was very friendly and extremely professional. So I placed the order, my car was picked up and after less than two weeks it was already repaired and ready to be picked up. In the on-site meeting there was a detailed explanation of the scope of the repair and an agreement on how to drive the car for the time being.
From my point of view I can recommend Solak Motors 100% and limited, because my engine purrs like a new one. Here is worked professionally and seriously. Keep up the good work!

After an engine failure on our Landrover Discovery 3, we first searched the Internet for a long time, because with this car an engine revision is complicated. The engine can only be overhauled if the body is separated from the frame. After a very nice and professional conversation with Mr. Solak, the decision for Solak Motors was made. The car could be picked up in Hamburg within a very short time and was brought to Bielefeld. I was then called the next week and the diagnosis was backed up with several photos of the engine. An overhaul was then carried out with crankshaft damage typical of the V6 diesel on Landrovers and everything was explained perfectly. I was even installed a forged crankshaft, which was also in stock! at a very good price compared to the other competitors. Furthermore, all engine attachments were checked and also the turbocharger / turbo hose was inked. After about 2 weeks I got the message that I can pick up the car again. I was picked up at the station by Mr. Solak with my car and during a drive to the workshop the boss explained the repair and the further running-in procedure to me.
I have now driven about 2000km after the engine overhaul and must say that the car drives very well. I can therefore highly recommend the company Solak Motors especially for the complicated engine overhaul of the V6 diesel of a Landrover!

After a timing chain broke on our X5 E70, our garage wanted to dispose of the car as an "economic total loss". Solak Motors picked up the car on time, did the repair for the fixed price quoted and also picked me up at the train station in Bielefeld when the car was repaired. The engine runs silky smooth as if nothing ever happened. So we are looking forward to many more years with our Dicken! A very clear recommendation and full marks for Solak-Motors!

After initial doubts to send our car with timing chain crack 350 km to Bielefeld to Solak Motors, we can now say that we have not regretted it. Pick-up and delivery service, as well as repair very competent and fast, people very nice. Repair as contractually agreed. We had our car back after one week. Monday fetched, Saturday morning back. That's how I imagine sustainability.
We are fully satisfied with this workshop, can always recommend it with pleasure.

The engine repair of my Volkswagen Tiguan was successful. While others can only install replacement engines, the experts at SOLAK-MOTORS are masters of their craft. The repaired engine works perfectly. This is a sustainable strategy: preserve instead of throwing away!
The pick-up and delivery service from/to Potsdam puts the icing on the cake.
Thank you very much. I can recommend SOLAK-MOTORS without reservation.

Hello Solak Motors,
as promised I am now giving a review.
I, that is a Mercedes SLK 350 V6 bought from a dealer and came to you with a timing chain disease. After a week with you in treatment I was given back to my owner recovered and drive since the complaint freely over the roads. Well done
Advice and rice / performance I have not evaluated because the repair costs were borne by the dealer. If there were more than 5 stars I would also give the full.

We were faced with the choice at BMW, a replacement engine including installation at about € 10,000 or buy another car, other options were not. Then we found on the Internet the company Solak Motors.
At first we were a bit skeptical, but then we called them. Everything worked out great, our car was picked up the very next day and also our "desired date" for completion was met. The contact was super nice, everything worked out great and the car was repaired for € 3000 and runs as before (until now :-)). No, so everything super, including the advice. Question is actually, why can not such a specialist workshop? Thanks again to the team of Solak Motors. Many greetings from the family Okon/Schmidt

my R class 350 CDI with just 167000 had a weird clacking noise in the front of the engine area.
MB and other workshop could not tell me exactly where the noise comes from,
to the selection were injector / timing chain / valve springs / camshaft.
I had the aforementioned list checked and the end of the story was that the aforementioned parts were in order and the engine ran fine except for the still existing clacking noise.
So I decided before I spend more money on diagnostics to have the engine completely repaired and thus everything goes in a wash and not longer without a car dastehe.
The search on the "net" lasted quite a while, because there are many "professionals for engines".
Thereupon I let send me also from various "professionals" cost estimates.
After several conversations with the "professionals" where I got a cost estimate at all, the decision was finally made for Solak Motors.
The contact was very friendly and professional.
Promptly two days later a driver with a team came to my home to pick up the car. The driver made a very friendly and competent impression on me, he knew what he was doing. Because he has my R class Fachmänisch loaded and safe / properly fastened and not tension belts in the rim / wheel fastened, as most do and thus a "later" wheel bearing damage, but with special tension belts for motor vehicle transport fastened.
The company Solak called me after you have disassembled the engine and told me that my engine has a "piston damage" and not as suspected a crankshaft bearing damage. In spite of everything, I was lucky that the engine block was not damaged and was still in good condition.
After three and a half weeks the car was ready and I picked it up in Bielefeld.
The reception was very friendly and they explained to me again what exactly was defective and what I should pay attention to when driving in the near future.
The defective piston was also given to me at my request.
Since then, the car runs without kappern, without problems and drives perfectly.

Thanks again for the fast and clean work.
