There is Smout's garage in Hagersville if you are down for a bit of a drive. Pricing is very reasonable as well.

Is Wiede still in business at Eagle and Concession (oops... Speedsville) in Cambridge? Across the street from Toasters Diner... google maps still shows it as Munich Auto but Wiede’s son bought it back from them a few years ago. Best lil diner in the region at Toasters.. have an omelette while they’re working on your car...

i work in oakville and live in elmira, i leave my house at 6:30am and im not home till 7pm. so any mechanic that is not available on the weekends is useless for me unless they are very close to qew and winston churchill blvd. does anyone know any good mechanics in elmira area or kw/cambridge? or possibly mississauga area near qew/winston churchill blvd.

hey wolf,

back years ago when i lived in that area, i used to go to Lorn Park Auto, which is about 3 minutes from that intersection, at the Clarkson Go... Reto used to be the owner, looks like Roman is now, and they've always been good about leaving the car when done out in the Clarkson lot if for example an after hours pickup needed. Always been good with vw.

If you can go as far as south Etobicoke, I highly recommend Frank at Eurosport Import Auto. The dealership quoted me $845 +HST to replace the AC condenser. Took it last Friday to Frank, and he did his own diagnostic (for free; VW charged me $138). Turns out the leak was at the O-ring seals for the pipes going into the condenser, not the condenser itself. $279 all-in later I was humming down the highway in cold comfort.
