Burnaby Auto Repair.
Burnaby's Oldest Auto Repair Shop
We are a four generation family of Tremblays who have been serving vehicle owners in the Burnaby and 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.

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. Oftentimes, 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 will 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.
We often get asked if 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 be 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's why we 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 ultimately save money.

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!
