On the contrary, seen some damn dangerous timing belt jobs and suspension work come out of the dealers.

I acted like I didn't know stuff and he was pretty on point with his knowledge. On his thread on Vortex, he offers 1 year warranty on both parts and workmanship.

He also test drives the car with you in it prior to dropping it off so that no one can claim that he "broke" something during the time that work was being done.

I saw the post on vortex and his prices seemed really low so it got me wondering... but if you say he's good then I know where I'm going for my TB change

Hello Group

I am looking for a mechanic in the Ajax Area or near Victoria Park and Kingston Rd area to work on my 2010 VW Golf TDI.

I am up for my 120k service soon and would like the work to be done right.

Any suggestions...

All are welcome

Thanks
John

Hi,
If your willing to go for a little drive, near Peterborough there is a great place to get work done, Schnell Volkswagen, and you'll save some money as they are not a dealership.
1 705 745-7115
Randy and Lisa are the owners
Hope this helps

Can't comment on the quality of repair work, but I wouldn't recommend going to them to buy a used car. Stopped by to check out a 2003 sedan they were selling for $6900. It was a pile of garbage for that price, and needed a new engine, but Lisa insisted that for that age it would be impossible to find one in better shape. I easily found several in better shape for less money (incl. the one I purchased).

Hi, I just bought a used 2005 golf tdi and it's my first diesel so I'm looking for a mechanic to go through the vehicle and see if there are any problems or anything that needs to be fixed. Also looking for a tune up / oil change and so on.

Anyone know a good place to go and around what price I should be expecting?

Thanks!

I won't take my car anywhere else to get repaired, if I was to buy from them I would just tell them what I wanted and have them get it for me at an auction, i'm glad you found something!

Oh I forgot to put that I live in east side of Markham. Peterborough is a little far for me. Anything closer?

I think he was referring to another post. Perjad at Precision tuning, he's at Keele and Langstaff. Great guy and very honest

Do you know how the price is there? For oil change, general maintenance / tune up?

Perjad is great. But his price is a little on higher end. I went to him couple of times and noticed each times his price is getting higher. Great mechanic none the less.

To give an example a year ago he quoted me $90 for changing just the fuel filter, i had the filter with me.

I would suggest to do oil change by yourself. I will be way cheaper.

What motor oil should I get? Theres the motul but that's like 57 a jug in the site. Is there a cheaper place or should I use another brand? What about filters? Should I get it there?

Thanks
