This is a top rate honest business. They explained to me why, in my case, it was better to have my radiator rebuilt out of copper and steel, rather than merely buy a new aluminum one. They then rebuilt it for me and gave me tips on what to do to my engine before I reinstalled the radiator. You will not be ripped off here. Great old school mechanics.

About 2 years ago the Townside Automotive shop was recommended to me by a very good friend. Since that time I have brought my car to Dave’s shop for various matters and have never been disappointed. Repairs are always reasonably priced, and in fact I wasn’t even charged at all in a couple of instances! I have found the staff to be consistently courteous and Dave always willing to speak with me whenever I asked questions concerning the maintenance on my car!! This place is great and is my go to auto repair shop!

Great staff. Honest and fair. Been going there since I moved to Victoria three years ago. Always hard to find an honest and good Mechanic. You will not be disappointed from these guys.

They have been doing my rad repair for more than a decade. They do all of my business for motorcycle fuel tank repair. When my 40 foot bus fuel tank leaked they did it fast and very fair. I would trust them with all my repairs. Scott Collins Adrenalin Motorcycle.

Dave: I just wanted to take a moment in follow-up to thank you again for the head gasket repar that you and the townside staff conducted on my 1992 Ford Escort a couple of weeks ago. Since then, my son & daughter have indicated the car has been operating well around Victoria. As they just live up the street on Hillside, I am glad that we now know of your shop in the event that the car requires any other maintenance and/or repairs over the next couple of years or so. Having the Escort back on the road has been a big benefit to us and we appreciate your efforts.  thanks again – Gord.

They were able to find room for me minutes after my van developed an issue with the brakes and they fixed it in a few hours. Very good prices I was impressed. Also great people to talk too. They even vacuumed the van even when it was full of stuff!
Highly recommend.  A Google User
