Went in with an exhaust leak right at a badly burned-looking and worn-exterior... flex pipe (see bottom unit in pic) . These great guys discovered that was not the source of the leak but rather just the adjacent gaskets and a bad bolt, just $16 worth of gaskets plus labour. Credit to their great service in saying leave the flex pipe alone for now, it won't last forever but it is not leaking yet! Thanks guys!!!read more

They were prompt, cost effective, and got the job done. They don't have a fancy... waiting room and don't even give you free coffee, but this no-frill shop knows their business and strives to get you the lowest cost parts. My muffler job was done on time and at the quoted price.read more

This was hands down the best experience I've had with a mechanic. They replaced... my brakes, rotors, and tie rod, and pricing was about half of what I'd been quoted in the kootenays. They did a rad job, tracked down parts that were likely super hard to track down (I drive a 1991 Ford Tempo) and even did some extra adjustments. Plus, the are charming af. My car feels completely safe now. I would recommend this place to everyone. Thanks guys! I'm so thankful my buddy recommended you.read more
