Great to have an import specialist in town. Did you previously work for any of the Japanese big 3 as a technician at one of their dealers? Do you have all updated computer diagnostic tools for Nissan that can read codes, clear codes, and reset the ECU?

I have a broken sensor. Causes the "service engine" light to come on. Took it to Honda a while ago and they charged me $200 to just read the error code and tell me what it was and tell me it was safe to drive the car. Then wanted $250 more to fix it which I couldnt afford after the $200 I already paid at the time.

I had my car there (Nissan) for the opening special (oil change etc) and had my rear breaks done as well. Was very happy with everything, service and cost. I will definitly return for future car repairs.

Let me Tell you a little story about True Tech Auto Repair.

This afternoon I was sent on an errand by my wife. Simple job. Pick up a package on Main Street. Easy enough.
I get my package, return to my car, and sure enough.....nothing. Won't start.
I have a '99 Accord with about 213,000 K on it, and I figured....well, it had to happen sometime. Now....what do I do ? I'm somewhat new to Milton, and hadn't an idea what to do, or who to call. So....I call home, and ask my wife if she could look somewhere for a tow truck in Milton, or a repair shop.
She goes on this very forum...finds this thread and makes a call.
Within 5 minutes, Paul form True Tech calls me.....has a tow truck on the way..and in 10 minutes, my car is in his service bay !!! (It's now 6....he closes at 6...). Pop the hood......sees the problem...(corroded battery cable...), calls a parts guy....he has it, and is on the way. By the time Paul has removed the corroded part, the parts guy walks in, hands him a new one, and 10 minutes later..I'm backing my car out of his shop.

So.....what did it cost me???? $25 . That's it........

I love this Town......In Toronto, I wold have paid 10 times this, and not had anywhere near the friendly honest service from the Tow Truck, True Tech, and the Parts guy. (By the way....The tow truck...."Kevin's" 905-878-9229)

Without hesitation, I would recommend Paul ar True Tech, to anyone.
There are not many people who would have stepped up and helped a guy out in such an honest way, and we should count ourselves lucky to have business people like this in Milton.
Take your car there...you won't get hurt, and you'll be glad you did. Nothing wrong with supporting a local business either folks !!!

That's my strory......I can't say enough about True Tech. A real gentleman, and an honest guy.

Peter

I just finished having my Subaru serviced with Paul @ True Tech Auto Repair. He was great to work with, nice honest guy, easy to talk to and you get straight answers and at very reasonable prices.

I would recommend him for your car repairs & service, he saw me the next day (I called the previous day late afternoon), and I got everything I needed complete in the same day.

Go see him for your import needs, he is on Bronte St. across from Mary St.

Was at True Tech last week to see Paul for an oil change on my truck. The shop was busy, but Paul there assured me he'd be with me soon. He was working alone, and he got my truck in the shop, and done in 25 mins. I asked him to check on a noise comming from the front end. He ended up tightening something that was loose, and he did it, no charge. Told me i didn;t need any further work done. He was very friendly and professional. I sent my neighbour there for his service a few days later, and he was very happy with the work True Tech did as well. My wife's car is going in this Sat for service too! Good to see an honest guy in town, who enjoys doing a good job, and taking care of his customers. Let's help the small business out, and send your cars there for service. You won;t be dissapointed.

Mike

To follow up on my post earlier. My wife brought in my car with the sensor issue. She was treated great, shown the issues found during the servicing and we were offered the option of getting a scrap yard part if we wanted or getting new (cracked manifold found during driveclean test). Service was quick, done well and honestly.

Sooooo nice to visit a shop where you dont feel you are constantly being taken for a ride. Especially since I often have to get my wife to bring in my car due to working downtown.

Will continue to use Paul and encourage you all to do so as well.

Another great experience with Paul at True Tech Auto !!!

Thanks for your work Paul....the car runs well, and I appreciate your honesty and advice on what to fix and what not to fix !!

(I dropped off my Honda with Paul, after it started giving me some grief, and asked Paul to sort out what will carry me through to Spring, when I plan on getting a new car...and he was honest enough to take care of the critical stuff, and hold off on what could wait....a rare trait these days....!!)

Paul is Honda, Toyota, Hyundai certified..and if it has wheels, he'll take care of it.....

Throw him your business folks....he's a good guy, and you won't get hurt...
Keep your money in Milton !!!

Pete

I fix cars on the side myself, so rarely trust mechanics. BUT, in every neighbourhood, there's always one or two shops where you get honest, salt-of-the-earth mechanics. So I have to say that Paul's the guy for Milton, and I'm just glad that after 1.5 years living in HV, I've finally found a mechanic who I can go to for repairs that are too messy, or that I can't do in a residential garage or my driveway.

I had a day off today, so I dropped in impromptu for a coolant change and replacement of drive belts. Paul accomodated me without question despite his packed schedule, knowing it was a rare day off from my 9-5 grind, and executed the work nicely. He's got good hands and is VERY clean. Just to give you an idea of how fair Paul is, he charged me so little for the work he did that I rejected his asking price, and gave him a bit more money, an amount for what I thought was fair based on what I would ask for if I did the same job for a neighbour or friend.

So I say spread the word for Paul. Above all else, he's a good family man, very honest, speaks Italian and French ;), very personable amid the bustle of working on 2 cars, meeting timelines and juggling phonecalls, and he's just working hard trying to establish his business. Those who have their own businesses know how tough the first few years are, so let's support Paul. He'll my guy from now on, and if you're fair with him and give him an inch, guaranteed, he'll take you a mile.

i also had a great experience there on friday. i called to come in and get new windshield wipers. i was there almost before closing (got caught at work) but it was no problem for paul, for which i was very grateful.

i also found the cost to be great. he also topped up my wiper fluid and checked the tire pressure (which meant i didn't have to do it in the cold of my driveway the next day - YEAH!).

i went based on the kind responses/input from people on this site and i am very glad i did. not only is it difficult to find a trustworthy mechanic, but it is more so when you're a female. i was put right at ease. you guys were right!

i too will continue coming to paul for my car's needs. thanx again!

I too recommend Paul and his shop. I've had both my wife's car and now my car in for some repairs and we are both very happy with his work. I'm glad we have finally found someone we can trust with vehicle issues.
