Jeffrey Tremblay driving confidence

We are a four generation family of Tremblays who have been serving vehicle owners in the Vancouver area since 1934! The Garage was established in 1984 by Ron Tremblay, in partnership with his father Fred as the second location of Tremblay family service providers. Ron’s brother Steve shared the leadership for over a decade and today two of Ron’s fourth generation sons have proudly taken the lead in the new facility in Burnaby.

What our customers are saying

Top notch service, knowledge, and tooling. These passionate people make it their mission to keep the love of your car alive. They provide good education and great maintenance packages to keep your vehicle running strong long term. They've shown me it's more economical as well as environmentally friendly to buy what you love and keep it in good shape, which is completely the opposite of a dealership's mentality of replacing the whole car when it breaks. They also like to fix things right the first time, which is a refreshing experience to say the least. I seriously recommend checking them out and finding out why for yourself!

They have converted me to preventative maintenance. My car has been coming here for 3 years and i have not had problem with it in that time. The service agents at the desk are always very nice and they remember you when you show up or call and they remember your car. These people care. They also provide a ride to work free of charge when dropping off in the morning. It can seem expensive but it probably isn't and if it were it would be worth it anyway.

Can you take a look at my vehicle before you do any work?

At TheGarage we can do a preliminary visual inspection on your vehicle to figure out what the problem is. The only way to get started is to connect a diagnostics scanning tool and run some preliminary tests. Often times, we might have to get under the hood to properly investigate what's going on.


Once we need to get under the hood, we'll have to charge for our time. Our technicians take a look, we'll do our investigations and our service manager with give you a call with an update. 


With the check engine light, there are thousands of diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), and we can only investigate so much in our initial testing. 

The engine light had come on, can you check this for me?

We often get asked do we charge for diagnostics. Like most auto shops, when you come in with your engine light on we can run preliminary diagnostics, but that often doesn't tell the real story. It could any one of a dozen problems for that specific area of the engine. 


It's important to accurately diagnose a problem before jumping to conclusions. That why we do charge for our time to properly and thoroughly investigate warning lights. In reality, paying for an accurate diagnosis can be the best way you will get to the root cause faster and save money.
