Appointment was easy, polite and pleasant. Requested oil change and fluid check only on the Maint. pkg advertised.. they still went and checked everything looking for problems...Mark checked me in and when I was ready to leave , asked him how long.....2 hours was the response..staff shortage and long weekend. Three hours later I called and they were waiting for an air filter.....I had another appointment and advised , forget about it , I will pick up the car immediately......Picking up the car, I was told "It is what it is"........ Will not be back......

generally satisfied with the service. Not the cheapest place tho. Got an oil change done half year ago. They told me that my brakes needed to be replaced (and offered me the service for around 800$). In fact they were still good as now, 10.000km later they're still passing the safety check at another shop. Not very honest 🙁 So if they suggest something you better get a second opinion somewhere else!

Just wanted to say that I came in to the shop for a tire pressure check and i was given world class service by Mark. Extremely kind and professional, I'll be sure to return and send friends over his way.

My first google review I've left and it isn't a good one. I brought my car here for an oil change and after waiting 2 hours, he told me nobody had got to it and to wait 45 more minutes. Unacceptable and struggle to find a reason to return.

Came here to do my routine oil change and inspection after having a great experience here last time. They gave a really great package deal and I opted for the upgrade to synthetic oil because it’s worth it and extends the time before you have to come back. As I was waiting in the office for them to finish up with my vehicle, I heard 5-6 other customers either dropping off or picking up their vehicles and their interactions were all positive. Everyone walked out happy and most were repeat customers, that should tell you something right there. I highly recommend minute tune for all your vehicles needs, the manager and staff were very helpful and accommodating. They are open and upfront about their pricing and there’s no pressure selling or surprise costs at the end. I paid exactly what we agreed upon at the beginning. I really liked their full diagnostics that identified some other potential services I would need in the future and gave me a quote on the cost. I will be booking another appointment very soon to get that work done.

Highly recommend! Friendly, fast, honest and professional. I brought my truck in for brake servicing and they were very accommodating. Mark did an excellent job at communicating with me. Great service! I will definitely be back.

Long story, but you need to read it.I went here to change my front tires on my Lexus, I have a regular mechanic, but he wasn’t available.When I picked up my car, I noticed the drivers side door wasn’t closing properly. I used to be able to use one hand to close the door, now I need both of my hands and a lot of force. I had no issues prior to them taking my car in.About 4-5 days of getting my tires changed, I’ve a “low tire pressure” message pop up, I check my PSI & it’s perfect. The message continues to pop up.3 weeks after this, my navigation screen totally fails. No radio, no backup camera, nothing is working.This could all be a coincidence. However, all of these issues are within 5 weeks of bringing my car to Minit Tune..I’ve never had a single issue with my vehicle, until I gave it to Minit Tune.It could be a coincidence, however, if you notice anything suspicious with your car. Maybe it isn’t a coincidence.I’m leaving this here for those who end up in a similar position.Another note: my partner brought his Charger here, they charged him out of the wazoo to fix it, less than a year later, they need to replace THE SAME part. The owner honoured the ‘mistake’ or whatever you want to call it.

I’ve been impressed with this business for many years, they’re always accommodating, friendly, helpful and fair. I’ve taken my old reliable Honda, my vintage Mercedes, and my new VW there over at least 10 years and they’ve always worked on them quickly and at my convenience. The new manager Dave is excellent, and Dan, Mike and Helmut are stars.

They were thorough with details over the phone and even made sure to have my car ready, when I had to work last minute. Very thankful for that and was able to get it fixed asap which is amazing!

Got recommended Minit-Tune, and called them for urgent potential fix and they listened to the problem M and really kindly worked things out to get me in the same day. Ended up not needing it after support from the service truck, but the advice they offered over the phone was clear and useful, and I will be using them for future repairs

My first visit to Minit-Tune and brake exceeded my expectations. The repairs were completed efficiently and professionally. Top notch service from Dan, Dave and crew! I’ll be returning for future vehicle maintenance.

Highly impressed with Dave, the service manager, and Dan, who got me in on a very last minute basis to have my tire diagnosed and repaired. Dave did me one extra and put the fixed tire back on my car. All of this was done in 20 minutes or so. I am going to certainly return for the rest of my car's mechanical needs. Great experience, 10/10 would recommend.

Response to the owner's response: Thank you for your concern for others' and my safety. Your advice is highly appreciated, and I have sorted these critical issues out myself and with another repair shop. I don't know where to begin but to say I feel embarrassed/ashamed because I feel like my customer confidentiality has been broken. That is, I don't understand why my private information was released to the public, and I'm not sure if your intended purpose was to make me feel this way.Furthermore, I feel unheard; this is my own fault of course for not listing my reasons on this review. The quality of your service aside, I gave a poor rating because I personally felt like I was overcharged for the service and for the estimate. I found services cheaper elsewhere, but of course I understand that no two mechanic shops are made equal. However, I do think I'm entitled to my own experience, without having the need or obligation to list my reasons. I'm entitled to provide your shop with these 2 stars without having to state my reason and surely without receiving a response that exposes my private 'diagnosis'. I don't think there is any malice in your response for you are doing your best to protect your shop from misinformation. With that being said, I thank you for identifying these problems with my car.
