Lee and his faithful crew of automotive aristocrats rise to the occaission consistently and with the utmost precision on proffessionalism. I went in for an inspection and with some concerns hoping for a diagnosis. I got more than I bargained for and infact was in what could have been a twenty five hundred pound accident waiting to not just happen but "explode" very unceramoniously. A break line on the verge of rupture. Upon further inspection, a few other moderately costly but fare repairs were in need of immediate attention. I decided to tackle the crucial items on the spot and upon the go ahead the guys " really went ahead. 4 to 5 hrs man labour in around 2-and it was the group of 3 and 4 that jumped on it like gang busters to make it happen. Before I had the time for a short jaunt and make my way back my phone rang and the deed was done. Thank you to Matt- found my break line and kept it to show me- to Lee for being an awesome guy and the rest of the crew for knocking it out the park on a regular basis. I highly recommend and also " note to selves" they don't just do breaks and mufflers!!read more

Friendly honest staff. Went elsewhere in town and was given an estimate that I didn't feel comfortable with. They were my second opinion and saved me over $400 in unnecessary repairs/maintenance. Front desk staff was courteous and knowledgeable, the work was done in a reasonable time frame, and I would highly recommend to anyone needing service.read more

I was concerned with feel of braking, plus condition of serpentine belt(s), on my 2005 Infiniti. Arranged with Leigh for next day appointment and all was corrected, as quoted, to my complete satisfaction within very short time. Other minor items identified and corrected. Highly recommend this business.read more

The Houchen's are the ones who know cars in Kelowna

Our family not only lives in Kelowna, we all work at the shop. You will most certainly meet Leigh at the front counter, find Iris answering the phone, and see Art and youngest son, Shaun, working in the shop. The Kelowna location is definitely a family business that believes in integrity, honesty and a job well done. We’ll show you the problem before we make the repair. And if you need a lift home or to the office, that would be our pleasure.
