At The Garage, we dialogue with you to discover the best way to look after your vehicle.

We all have different, busy lives. We have different driving styles and different ways we use our vehicles. So, we make sure that we look after your vehicle in a way that best suits you, your budget, your lifestyle and your future plans.

Together, we agree on a maintenance plan that works for you, your vehicle usage and your budget.

Modern vehicles are complex. These days a car has at least 20-30 networked computers controlling many different aspects of performance and functioning. We have the latest diagnostic tools to identify even the most challenging issues so we can keep your car in the best condition possible.

P.S.: Not sure if you should be spending money on your vehicle or simply trading it in for a newer one? We can help you make a decision that will best suit your lifestyle needs and save you money over the long term. Check our vehicle planning page or give us a call.

New car? Manufacturer's warranty? No problem!

The Garage has the necessary trade qualification to carry out maintenance and repairs on your brand new car under the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty.

That means you can benefit from:

    1. A more comprehensive auto maintenance regime to protect your vehicle over the long term

    2. A better understanding of your vehicle and what it requires to considerably extend its life

    3. The opportunity to, in some cases, make use of parts that last longer or perform better than original parts

See what some of our customers have to say:

In October 2014, we celebrated 30 years at 4066 Macdonald Street. Watch this video to find out why so many of our customers stay with us for years!

I love this family-owned and -run business! I trust The Garage implicitly and it is worth paying a little more for peace of mind and quality customer care. I have also converted to a ‘service’ model of car maintenance (rather than a ‘crisis’ model) and I really appreciate that I can discuss different options depending on my financial situation (i.e. what is critical, what can wait, what I should start saving up for and when I should think about selling the car).

Linda

Great service, honest, reliable, competent. What more could you ask for? Friendly, to boot!

Cool news, tech tips

Disappearing independent vehicle service shops and the impact on ownership
There’s a big change happening in the auto industry that’s catching people unawares. Essentially, we are moving from a mindset of ‘fix it when it breaks’ or ‘fix it when the light comes on’—that has been there since motor vehicles first arrived on the scene and is still very much entrenched in our thinking—to a culture of long-term preventative maintenance.
What you need to know about new car warranties and proper maintenance
When you buy a new car you, are sold a fantasy. The fantasy is that the manufacturer's warranty will save you lots of unpleasant expenditure and keep the car in good shape. To an extent, the warranty keeps its promise as you enjoy a trouble-free driving experience for three, four or five years. The trouble is that when the warranty expires, you may have a problem, and you may be surprised at the true condition of your car.
What’s with your car? Get a high tech, clear picture
At The Garage, we have invested in technology and training specifically designed to make sure that our customers get the fastest and best quality service, with absolute clarity on the customer’s part, in a way that puts them in control of their choices. Those who’ve tried it, love it!
Why are some seemingly simple repairs so expensive?
As vehicles become ever more computerized and complex, even the most basic repair can cost a lot more than you may reasonably expect. In this video, Kevin Tremblay, General Manager at The Garage in Vancouver, BC, explains why, for example, you can no longer simply replace a door lock cylinder when it breaks.
What can The Garage offer that dealerships cannot?
If you plan to keep your car for more than five years—and these days, cars are build to last for 20 or more years in good running order—you may not be getting the best maintenance advice from your dealership. In this video, Kevin Tremblay explains what you could be missing out on.
Is your car about to divorce you?
We tend to think that we have a one-way relationship with our car. But our car is always communicating with us, if we care to listen—and it does pay, long term, to listen. Divorce can be messy, and very expensive.
5 top car maintenance shockers you probably never thought about
These days, when we buy a new or modern vehicle, most of us assume that if we follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule, we’ll have a relatively trouble-free relationship with our vehicle that won’t be too expensive. Unfortunately, that may not be the case.
The Simple Truth: Building a relationship with your local service shop
Building a relationship with your local service shop is the best way to have your vehicle looked after properly. In this video, we see how sometimes an initial conversation may not go so well, and how the customer can get great long-term service for their vehicle.
