My truck service.
Honest straight forward advice and service to match. I'm very pleased with the work and done on time as quoted. They also arranged a car rental so I wasn't stranded without transportation.This was my 3rd visit and I'll be back.

Thorough analysis
Stephen and his team did a great job analyzing my latest acquisition, a $300 Jeep. They showed me how I could make it into a very serviceable $4,000 Jeep, and helped me decide what were the important factors in weighing budget against safety and cosmetics. I now have an ugly but very functional $2,000 Jeep, and I am delighted with the outcome. Don't be fooled my the company name - "Brake and Muffler" is just a small part of what these guys can do, which encompasses pretty much everything except diesels.

These guys kickass.
I've been going to Quality Auto for years now and it was recommended to me from 2 other people as a trustworthy shop. I've had nothing but good experiences with them; they always have made time to fit me in for service, even on short notice. They save me money where they see that I can, and take the time to explain what needs to be done and why. I trust these guys and they live up to the name.

These gentlemen are great. For example, I had a long lasting issue with my Prius where I couldn't understand why gas consumption went higher than I remember. Since then I passed a few visits to dealer and KalTire to rotate my tires assuming they were doing re-balancing correctly. In result, it turned there was a crack in one of the struts, which required its replacement and after that was done, balancing completed successfully and now I am back to my 4.7l/100km. Kudos to Quality Brake and Muffler!

Sidney, BC Quality Brake and Muffler is the best place on the island to get your car fixed. Steve's honesty, dedication, excellent customer service and the talented team he works with are tremendous and a breath of fresh air in an industry that does not always have a good reputation. Keep up the excellent work! fyi - I have moved 40 minutes away but still will only take my car to them. They make you feel like part of the family! What more can you ask for?

Just started using Steve's service recently. Have had three work appointments completed now. Very pleased with Steve's service. We are all looking for a mechanic we can trust to tell us the truth, complete the work on time and successfully and charge us a reasonable price. Steve delivered on all counts. Very much appreciate that Steve takes the time to explain what he thinks the problem may be, how to fix the problem and what it might cost to fix. We had an issue getting an problem sorted out the first visit, so a second visit was required which solved the problem. Steve took the time to actually call me after the second visit to make sure the problem had been fixed. First time a mechanic has ever called me to make sure I was happy. Well done Steve!! Steve seems comfortable working on European cars also, which is huge bonus, alleviating the need to drive into Victoria where most Euro shops in the area are located. Extremely happy to have found Quality Brake and Muffler and Steve!! Highly recommend.

No complaints with work..customer service needs work
I went to quality to get my brakes and rotors and callipers done on my dodge caravan. I went in and asked for an estimate for these things and he wouldn't give me one he said not until they inspected it. I thought this was poor because I called other places and they just told me that I may need other things done but this is what the things I asked for would cost. Also when I called to see what was needed at noon that day he said I needed brakes rotors and callipers but had to wait till his order came in to get them, when I took the car in why couldn't the parts be ordered rather than waiting till half way throughout the day. He. Said that they where waiting in parts for 3-4hours! Then I couldn't pick up my car till after 5:30 pm because they where waiting so long ( I had to take my son somewhere at 5). I told them I would pick up my car the next day on my break, I come the next day and there is no one in the office. I flag down a mechanic and he tells me the that the manager has steped Out and will deal with me when he gets back. ( I am on my break from work) I ask them to call him because I am pressed for time and they as y that he has no phone! So I have to wait because no one in the whole place except the manager has passwords for the computer. After 10-15minute the manager gets back and says how's my day, I express my displeasure and the manager flippantly says well they can't have passwords because they would have access to my accounts (ever heard of password protected file...) he then prints my invoice and I pay and leave . Upon review of my invoice I note that the other brake information was left incomplete And the inspection note weren't there. Poor service gets no points with me defiantly wouldn't go somewhere that doesn't value my time, going back to my old mechanic

Feedback from Shop Owner:
We do not give prices on repairs over the phone, that is our policy. As for giving prices to the client we went over the worst case when vehicle was dropped off. We do not order parts assuming we need them as the could be restocking fees for returning parts not needed. We also are 37 km from the Victoria warehouse and it sometimes takes time to get parts delivered depending on driver location when parts ordered and traffic on highway. The client was offered a courtesy truck as replacement if needed and they stated they had other options. they did say they would pick up the car during their break around 10 but arrived to pick up at 9:15. I cannot comment on how long they waited but the manager was off site for about 10 mins . It is completely our fault for allowing this client to feel not served to our typical standard and we have had discussion on ways to prevent time related issue with current delivery service and what time bank deposits should be done, as for technicians having passwords and protected file, the file is password protected as the invoice system is the file and that cannot be changed. We take this as a great lesson and take it as great criticism that we will use to improve our service. Thanks.
