SA Taxi Renewed Taxis go through a high-quality panel and mechanical refurbishment process ensuring that when the process is complete, the taxi is as good as new.
No corners have been cut in the process and each taxi undergoes several strict quality checks before it reaches the showroom floor.
You will drive away secure in the knowledge that your taxi is safe, reliable and renewed to the highest standard, backed by a 60 000 km / 12 month warranty.
PANEL & MECHANICAL REPAIRS
Taxis undergo stringent assessments to see what needs to be repaired and replaced.
Stripping and panel repair
All taxis are stripped before they undergo a full panel repair and an interior seat and trim refurbishment.
The painstaking process of paint preparation ensures a smooth finish. Our paint booths are fully equipped to handle the high standard of production backed by our lifetime paint guarantee.
The taxis are reassembled then washed and polished before they move to the mechanical refurbishment process.
Because safety and quality are of critical importance, our specialist technicians conduct an in-depth refurbishment of all mechanical parts.
We only use quality and tested parts.
These items are replaced on ALL renewed taxis:
• Front brake pads
• Front brake discs
• Front brake callipers

SA Taxi Auto Parts sources quality parts from both local and international suppliers and these parts are used through the entire refurbishment process and also available to the public.
Quality control takes place at several levels. Only once a taxi has passed through the strict quality control process will it move on to the next stop. After the internal quality control process is complete, each taxi undergoes a roadworthy test according to the Department of Transport standards.
Each renewed taxi has a 12 month or 60 000 km warranty period, covering a number of mechanical and panel issues. Your taxi is covered as long as it receives its prescribed services from authorised mechanics.
If you need to claim under the warranty, we have a team of service advisors managing the process from start to finish. They manage the repair booking process between you and the workshop and will ensure that you get your taxi back in working order as soon as possible.
This warranty offering is only available on renewed taxis.
