I have been coming to this shop for YEARS! Rob and his team are amazing. With... so much stigma in this industry with people taking you for a ride (excuse the pun), Rob and his guys are nothing but honest. I will literally not take my car anywhere else, even though I've now moved to Gastown, I still bring my car here for the regular oil checks, check ups, brake work ect. Thanks for all your years of hard work guys!read more

Had my brakes checked over and fixed by Rob and his team. He was very kind, and... knowledgeable about the repairs that needed to be done. He did a free inspection and called me with the total costs before proceeding with the repairs. I would absolutely recommend this shop to my friends and family!read more

We had our van serviced here at this location last summer. I was certainly... impressed with the service so when I heard my brakes starting to squeal on my JEEP, I immediately called Rob.Rob and his team are professional and friendly. I had 100% faith and trust that I wasn’t going to be sold something that wasn’t required.Turned out that the rotars needed machining and something to do with the brake pads. They completely serviced the brakes. Cost was about $325 plus tax.My point here is that they could have easily sold me on brakes with a cost of $800! This is the number one reason I feel comfortable coming to see Rob, I truly trust they will fix what needs to be fixed and not try to fix something that doesn’t yet need fixing.Rob and team.... thank you so much!I highly recommend to call Rob and tell him Pascale recommended you! You will see for yourself 😊read more

The manager Rob really cares about finding the best value for the customer and... went out of his way to let me know about cheaper solutions to the problem my car was having. I got the impression from him that he is genuinely a good guy who isn't trying to make a quick dollar off of those who roll up to his garage, but instead he's more interested in forming lasting relationships with his customers.I highly recommend this location!read more

Rob and his team are terrific! Most recently I had a few maintenance repairs... for my older car which I love and want to keep for as long as possible. Rob was extremely professional and did a great job of coordinating the repairs, choosing the best parts, keeping my costs reasonable, and even finishing ahead of schedule. Mechanics Corey and Dan are solidly reliable and consistently do high quality work. They have extensive knowledge of new and older cars, and show a true passion for what they do. I drove away feeling confident in my vehicle, and also learned a lot more about my car in the process thanks to their thoughtful explanations. I am happy to recommend Rob and his team!read more
