Dear [Recipients Name],
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the outstanding services you rendered to me at your garage last weekend. My car's gearbox had a problem, I took it to two other mechanics and paid a lot of money, yet the problem persisted.
I was extremely pleased with the professional manner in which you attended to my car. I am glad to report that I have not experienced any problem whatsoever with the gearbox.
Thank you once again. I will recommend people to your garage.

Further things to consider when writing thank you letters to vendors
Thank You Letters
Thank-you letters are letters written to politely acknowledge a gift, service, compliment or an offer. Simply put, these are letters you write to express your gratitude and appreciation for someone's thoughtful actions. You can send a thank-you letter after personal events, an interview, networking events, after receiving a gift or donation, etc. A thank-you letter is always special in that it lets the recipient know that what he/she did was greatly valued and appreciated. The letter should be sent promptly and when the events are still fresh so that it can be more meaningful.
Thank-you letters should be warm, personal, and sincere. Begin with the two magical words "Thank you," and address the recipient in a way that feels most natural. Be clear about what you are thanking the person for. Let the recipient know why his/her specific gift or actions are cherished and why they are important to you. Inquire after the recipient's well-being and share some information about your life. Let him/her know that you are thinking about him/her and mention the next time you may want to meet. To wrap things up, thank the recipient again and let him/her know that you value his/her friendship.
Letters to Vendors
Letters to vendors are letters written to people or companies offering goods for sale. These letters could be written to inquire information about a product, terminate a contract with a vendor, or to inform a vendor of relocating of business. If you own a company, writing to your vendors is important as it provides you and the recipient with proof that you actually requested something or took action regarding an issue. It is also an effective way to communicate sensitive information that may not be communicated on the phone.
Letters to vendors must be written in the standard business letter format and should use an official letterhead. Start the letter with a statement that informs the recipient of the purpose of your letter. Explain the letter in details providing all the important information. For instance, if you are writing to terminate your contract with the recipient, mention the date when you want to effect the change. However, if your letter is to inform the recipient of your business relocation, you should provide the new business location and address. Be brief and use a professional tone. Finish on a positive tone and sign the letter with your full name.
