It's getting to be a few years ago, but Total Mechanical Services in Orangeville charged somewhere near $800 to do my BRM timing belt, including the water pump and tensioner.

Hi all. I need to get my timing belt replaced and live in the Hamilton area. Any recommends? I'm looking for a shop that does quality work and uses OEM parts. I'm not looking for the cheapest but someone that's fair and knows what they're doing. I've had two bad dealership experiences recently so they're no longer getting my business. I will also be doing clutch and brakes this year. I have an 06 wagon.

One place that's popped up in my search is Beech Motorworks. Any feedback on these guys?

As always, appreciate the feedback!

Another happy customer with Brandon at DCB.

My friends BRM, needed a new cam. It had worn through one of the cam followers. I'll try and get a pic uploaded, if I can figure out how. While there and doing the cam, he also had the timing belt done, because he couldn't remember the last time it was done (which is never good news for a TDi). Dropped off on the Wednesday and back on the road on the Friday. Smooth as butter on the 400.

Thanks Brandon for a job well done and also for the coffee and cold beverages.

I searched the Ontario forum and this thread for Tazzy. I am curious to know if anyone has ever used MrTazzy located in Milton for a timing belt or other repairs.

Tried to call there a few times for an alignment and no one answered. Are you looking for a place specifically in Milton?

Potentially, I have an over due timing belt that I want to do but need to grow a pair. MrTazzy happens to be down the street from me so very convenient.

I have been going to Washington Garage, about 15 minutes out of Cambridge. They do a lot of VW.

Not for me, but I've got a buddy with a 09 Passat Gasser, needs a shop that will install cooling fans in Brantford.

Google didn't show me any that say they know or specialize in VW's.

Cheers!

Default Sigh..

I literally could have posted this, almost word for word, said the same thing "I want 'x' fixed and if you see anything else proactively that needs fixing, let me know and we can schedule these jobs as I want the car mechanically sound!" What do I get, the job done,
and I believe done well but nothing more and there is much to fix on this car.

Why is this so difficult, I don't want to pay the stealership for their glass and leather, I want fair market, quality parts and quality work!

No more.

Every time I ask them to do something, they do it. However, I always say, if you see something needing attention, please tell me.

2 -3 times off my head, they kept their mouth shut.
The last time, I brought in some parts, asked to have them installed.
Well, the ebrake they did does not bite. I didn't bother going back this time. I went elsewhere to see what was going on.
I go get it checked out. My rotors are shot. My bearing is shot. My tie rod is shot.
I was shown ( and heard ).
There's NO way they could have visually missed this all this doing a caliper, and ebrake cables, etc....
There is previous stuff too. However, I'm not getting into it.
However: If you do hand them a part, say you want it installed. They will do it correctly. But if you have a fuel tank leak right next to their job, they will ignore it and move along.... ( even if it hampers their install as well - as it did mine )

Default Current recommendations for pre-buy inspection in London?

I'm wondering who you'd recommend to do a pre-buy inspection in/near London. Autobahn? Leavens? Anyone else?

Thanks!
Michael

I'd recommend Leavens by far for that.

Autobahn is good too. Fixed my AC system a few years ago and saved me a bit by finding me used fans.
