CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

We purchased a 2016 Ram 3500 Dually and Camper Unit in Los Angeles and then travelled extensively (75,000 kms) around the USA & Canada over a number of years. We fell in love with "Rambo" and decided to import them to Australia. After much research we chose SCD American Vehicles in Brendale to do the RHD conversion and Australian compliancing. We found the staff courteous and helpful throughout the process inviting us to inspect the work in progress at any time. Indeed they went above and beyond in their dealings with us. The interior finish is excellent and I find the new driving position and vehicle characteristics no different to when we drove throughout North America. We would have no hesitation in recommending this Company for their technical expertise, workmanship and public relations. Thanks again to all at SCD.
The team at SCD have been fantastic to deal with from first contact to delivery of my ram 1500. The open communication and updates along the way made the process stress free and reassuring. The end product was my truck being converted and delivered with exceptional quality as it was promised. After owning the vehicle for over a month now, nothing has changed. The after sales service has been fantastic. I can highly recommend SCD if your after a no fuss and reliable experience.
Good guy's second to none
Great team, great company, great cars & great vibe. Buying my new Ram 1500 2020 DT Limited from these guys, can't wait!!!
The guys in the service and accessories department here are fantastic! Truck is in and out, no hassle, clean, everything fitted great. Highly recommend them for service and accessory work anyday!
Best cars, great service. Very happy customer
The SCD Team is the absolute best for conversions and after sales support. They continue to exceed our expectation in every facet of their operation. Extremely professional and always available for support. As the team who do the conversions, they know all about their vehicles. Nothing is ever a problem. We have never dealt with a company that is so committed to providing such a high level of customer service. We just love our Ram 2500. It tows our 4.5t Bushtracker with absolute ease and great economy.
Wow! Another beautiful vehicle from SCD America. After 140,000klm of fault free motoring, I was at end of lease of my Dodge Ram 2500 it was time to replace it. So I’ve just taken delivery of my Nissan Titan XD Platinum Reserve. What a truck another faultless conversion from the crew at SCD America. After having the Dodge to tow my 3.5 tonne boat and getting 13klm per litre while cruising up the highway to my next fishing destination. I am sure the new Titan with its twin turbo 5Ltr Cummins motor is going to return about the same. These trucks from America are just amazing with all the bells and whistles and the huge towing capacity. If you are a caravan person or boat person do not waste your money on anything else. Both of my brother in-laws drive tricked up Sahara’s but after driving them there is no comparison to the XD. So if you’re looking for the perfect vehicle for your next adventure give Steve & Eddie a call at SCD America.Stephen K – (Phone number available through Steve & Eddie if you would like to talk to me about their service and support)
I have purchased two vehicles from SCD American Vehicles and have no complaints. Eddie and the team are more than capable of producing a RHD US muscle car conversion. The end result is flawless considering it wasn’t mass line produced in the US. I would recommend SCD, not like some of the ratings of 1 star by people who have never dealt with them.
what other glowing review can I give of the team at SCD other than buying one of their vehicles after dealing with them for over 8 years? the lengths they go to for their clients during the sale and even more so after the sale is complete is unparalleled. I have financed many clients for them over the 8 years I have worked with them and not one has even had a bad experience & I have seen first hand the lengths they will go to for any warranty repairs flying interstate even repairing a vehicle that was out of warranty and had been sold by their original owner (who purchased off SCD) at their cost. Yes they do refer me business and have done so for years but if their product was not up to scratch or had constant issues I definitely would have heard about it from my clients and there is no way I would have spent six figures (a few figures over budget) myself on one of their rams, a decision I am very happy I made.
A big thank you to Michael Danielli who contacted me via a online post of mine when I had an issue with some work that was carried out by a third party which led to a part on my Ram being broken. He offered to replace said broken part and also replaced my fog light which had been burnt out which they picked up and also fixed all the other issues that was caused by the third party!! Michael did all this to just help me out knowing that I got my Ram from ASV and not even them!!! To see me happy in the Ram on the road!! I cannot express my gratefulness enough to such a legend and awesome customer service!! I absolutely have no issue with recommending them for any service or Accessories or your next Ram!! I will be going back there for further items and my next Ram!! Also a big shout out to Brandon Zammit!! Thank you to the team of SCD American Vehicles!!! Above and beyond awesome service!!!
What an Amazing team.I’ve purchased an RT challenger through these guys and couldn’t be happier with the car. Attention to detail on conversion through to dealing with Eddie and Sean on the sale to the RT being delivered to Melbourne was seamless and much better than some of the big dealers I’ve dealt with. I’m usually not a big reviewer but these guys honestly earned it and recommend anyone looking for one if there cars, Don’t hesitate ! Keep up the awesome work guys. David
