    I don't know how his prices compare but the guy at Westmount Auto is honest and fair. I don't take my car anywhere else as I know he will never tell me that something needs fixing when it doesn't. PM if you want the adress/phone number.

    Good and cheap do not go together. Most garages have what they call the "shop rate" per hour. They also have a certain number of hours assigned to each job.

    If you want good and are on the south side there is one down 50thSt. and about 74th Avenue...before the old Shaw building. It's a bit hard to find I will get the exact location from my husband if you are interested.

    Depending on where you live I own an OBD reader that will tell you if you have any problems with your car so you know ahead of time what exactly is wrong with your car. It can't tell you about your brake pads and flushes. I change my own oil, filters, brake pads, tire rotations. Not too hard but you have to want to do it. Tranny flush you really need someone to do. The reading only takes a couple of minutes will give you some codes and you can look them up at home.

    Last week I take my car to Apex specialized auto care service center. Where they checked my car within 2 hours and they told like my car's brake feels more spongy and they corrected it and give a suggestion like if your brakes has ABS or other sophisticated system then you can do this with the help of your friends. Really it helps me a lot.

    I've known mechanics whom I've given my new parts to in the bag from Canadian tire. To later find out that this creep. Was taking all my new parts back to the store and getting the cash back for my parts. Then he goes to the junk yard and got the parts for next to nothing.

    Lesson learned YES
