looking for good mechanic for maintenance in GTA area

So I have a 2009 Civic EX sedan. The warranty just expired this year so I would like to maintain my car outside of the dealership. I was wondering if anyone knows any good mechanic for regular maintenance/servicing around the Markham /Richmond Hill/Scarborough/GTA areas?

To answer your question on a 'Good' mechanic. There are various companies/institutions like CAA and BBB who have these companies on their lists. These are generally the better choice for auto service as they are constantly regulated and monitored.

If your implying a mechanic who is not only skilled and experienced but honest...let me know when you've found one.

What about the oakville/burlington area now that you're retired??

I don't want to take my '09 Accord to Honda anymore.

I do side-jobs out of my friend's home garage at 403/winston churchill. You're one of the select few I'm referring to in my signature luka.

I just don't do major engine swaps anymore..but brakes, tune-ups, balljoints, etc, i still do. If you need JUST an oil change, you're better off going to a shop.. but if you need an oil changes and a tune-up or brakes, I'll defiantly make time for you. If you lost my number, I'll PM it to you again.
