Trust Your Engine Service & Repairs To Supertech Auto Repair North Vancouver
Whether you drive an import or a domestic car or truck in the North Vancouver area, the engine is the heart of your vehicle. If it is not working properly, your vehicle will suffer. It is important to pay attention to the signs of engine trouble. If you miss some of these signs, you risk more damage to your engine which can result in much more costly engine service and repair or even engine replacement.
SIGNS THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE ENGINE
Check Engine Light – There are several signs that your engine is not running like it is supposed to. One of the most obvious signs is the Check Engine Light (CEL). The whole purpose of this light is to let you know there is a problem with your engine. It can be triggered by many things including the spark plugs being worn, the catalytic converter being damaged, or any other electronic sensor issues.
Engine Stalling – If your car is stalling while you are driving, there may be a problem with the engine. The stalling of a vehicle is not only annoying and worrisome, but it can be very dangerous if you are on a highway or in the middle of the road and the car suddenly stops. If you are experiencing this with your vehicle, bring it in as soon as possible to one of our mechanics.
Making Noises – A knocking noise coming from your engine is definitely a clue that you need to have your vehicle checked out by a professional mechanic immediately.
Oil Patches – Oil on the ground is never a good sign. It means you have a leak somewhere and your engine is in trouble.
Smoke Coming from the Exhaust – There are several colors of smoke that should not come from your exhaust. Those colors include black smoke, white smoke, and blue smoke. Black smoke can indicate that there is too much gasoline being used. This could be due to a clogged air filter. White smoke could mean that there is a leak allowing coolant to be burnt up in the engine which can cause overheating of your engine. Blue exhaust smoke coming from your pipe indicates that there is an oil leak inside your engine. So, if you see any of these colors of smoke coming out of your exhaust pipes, bring your car in to have one of our experienced technicians inspect your vehicle.
Additional signs that your engine may be in trouble include foul odors like an exhaust smell inside of your car, overheating of your vehicle, and of course, your engine not starting.
Highly recommended!! They got me in super fast (I'm from out of town) and they undercharged for labor as my brakes were pretty seized and required two people. Katie at the front end was super friendly and kept me in the loop with what was happening time and parts wise. Thanks Supertech!!

After recently relocating to the north shore I was having a hard time finding a mechanic that was able to service my truck as it’s oversized, and many mechanics aren’t familiar with vehicles of this size. Supertech was able to get me in within a 48 hour window, and assured me they were very familiar and capable of working on a truck of this size. Boy am I glad I came here, they went above and beyond to fix a high KM wobble, a full service and even provided me with an inspection report with more photos and detailed than a police report!! Justin was my tech, he took so much time out of his day to go through each thing on my truck and answered my million questions without making me feel like I was annoying him! He provided so much insight into what he did and why he did it, which is beyond rare compared to previous experiences at other shops. The front office staff were friendly, funny and just as helpful. A wonderful experience and already booking more work in with them. Thank you to the entire supertech team 🙂
00:31 16 Aug 22
Great experience with this shop. I would surely recommend. Staff very friendly and helpful. Love the online report with pictures which was send before doing any repairs!

Came by during my canada trip for a basic servicing on a sprinter van 2007. They manage to do all this super quickly. Price is very fare and communications easy and friendly. I warmly recommend this place.

My dad got his Mercedes C300 serviced here in March and was very impressed by the professionalism and high quality of service. The next day an oil light came back on and the team at Supertech Auto graciously and quickly resolved the issue. My dad had a very positive experience with entire team who were very helpful and accommodating. My dad intends to use Supertech for all of his future services and would happily recommend them to anyone. Thank you very much from Christopher Barber.

SUPERTECH AUTO completed the work at a reasonable price in timely manner.Booked an appointment late Wednesday night for brake replacement . Thursday morning it was confirmed for Friday morning(would’ve had to wait another week to get my car in at 4 other shops).There communication was punctual, the estimate was accurate. Alexis did an amazing shop explaining the whole process.I have never experienced this level professionalism from an auto shop. I will be coming back for future repairs!
17:59 28 May 22
Wonderful staff and super helpful/knowledgeable. Business operated quickly and smoothly to get me back on the road again, would recommend 100/10!
16:18 27 May 22
Amazing experience!! They are quick, knowledgeable, honest and VERY nice. Loved the service and the quality of work. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
03:20 13 May 22
Good service for Range Rover - they know what they are doing !!
04:35 01 May 22
Good service, always making sure to get the job done to the best of their abilities. I felt that it was a fair price and if I had to say one bad thing, it would be that they don't work weekends. Definitely recommend this place though.

I got a used vehicle inspection done here and I cannot say enough good things about the experience! I have had a fair amount of inspections done and have come to expect the typical simple checklist of items with minimal description given of issues. Supertech's digital format inspection report including photos (!!) and repair estimates of any items of interest was invaluable in allowing me to make an informed purchasing decision. Danielle has great professional insight to offer and made this an top notch experience from beginning to end. Incredible!
22:57 07 Apr 22
Excellent service and work with competitive pricing. A business with a focus on maintaining its integrity.
16:18 28 Mar 22
Very professional service!
23:20 20 Feb 22
Everyone at Supertech has been so wonderful and kind! I brought my car in as a first-time owner and they made everything so easy and accessible to me. They always give me a detailed report and make sure to prioritize their recommendations based on what needs to be done first. They also check in with me every step of the way about what is being done. I really feel like I can trust them to treat me fairly and take excellent care of my car.
19:52 14 Jan 22
Very professional, offer great service and what’s even better is their after service /follow up and reward systemFor sure I found my service agent and have recommended them to others
03:33 30 Dec 21
My heater stopped working during a cold snap and Danielle was very kind to fit me in the next day where they were able to fix it. I also had my puppy with me and she showed me a map of great places to walk him while I waited. Great service and very caring. Thank you to the whole team⛄

20:36 26 Jul 21
A not so hidden gem in North Vancouver. I have bought multiple cars here to get maintained and repaired. Their work is always the best and top notch compared to the other shops that I have used in the past. They guarantee their work and makes sure you know it. They are always busy but they do their best to accommodate you, so make sure to phone ahead. Thank you Supertech!
23:37 24 Jul 21
Supertech auto was amazing, I saw their google reviews online and decided to give them a shot, I went in for a diagnostic to check on a few of my concerns with my Jeep Wrangler, it only took them a little to send me an online report, not only did the report show me what i was concerned with but they did a full inspection on my Jeep and told me what was needing to be replaced ASAP as well as coming up. The receptionist at Supertech introduced me to their “Jeep Guru” named Tim who was amazing! Not only did he take the time to talk to me about my concerns with my jeep but he even did a test drive with me, to confirm the issues. I can’t thank the at super-tech enough for their amazing team and i look forward to coming back to them again for any services and maintenance that i require.Thank you so muchMax
23:50 23 Jul 21
Except for getting the news my motor is blown...most honest automotive shop in the lower mainland...highly recommend!!!!!
23:56 22 Jul 21
Amazing service! My vehicle is a 1994 Dodge Viper. Parts difficult to find. The Supertech team kept working, sourcing parts, until my Viper was running perfectly. Best vehicle service experience I have ever had.
16:44 17 Jul 21
Absolutely fantastic experience here! Brought my Lincoln in today for a routine service and zero complaints! Really appreciated the email condition report with all the pictures included. Would highly suggest coming here!
22:34 09 Jul 21
Great service, great inspection which helped me to do follow up on my warranty otherwise I had to pay the price after my warranty.Thanks guy
17:09 12 May 21
I had gone on a road trip with my husband to visit friends and family out west. After a few days of being in Vancouver, I had experienced some issues with our car. It had been highly suggested I go to Supertech as it has nothing but great reviews.Not only were the staff super friendly, they were able to take us in right away and fix our car very quickly.We were so happy that we went here and would highly recommend Supertech to anyone out there ... they saved our trip !! 🙂
20:37 14 Apr 21
If you are looking for a great place to service your vehicle, I highly recommend Supertech. My car was at four other shops for a check engine light diagnosis to the tune of over $800.00. The folks at Supertech listened to my concerns, repaired my vehicle and even made me a coffee while I waited. I had an awesome experience. These guys rock!
20:33 14 Apr 21
17:38 14 Apr 21
Friendly and efficient service
22:24 13 Apr 21
From start to finish the staff at Supertech were highly professional, very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Alexis was a great help in arranging for the work to be done and ensured the experience was easy and timely. I would definitely utilize Supertech in the future and encourage anyone to use them for automotive needs. Thanks Supertech.
22:24 09 Apr 21
I booked an appointment online for oil change just for an hour later . Their service manager Alexis responded immidiately and confirmed the appoinment , she let me know that they could provide the service even half an hour earlier. Her world class customer service surprised me . The oil change and inspections were done thoroughly professionally . I am happy to have found them on Easter Monday . They did a perfect job. I will certainly go there for my future car maintenance. Thank you Alexis and technicians.🙏
20:25 07 Apr 21
I found my Mustang shop. I am super sensitive where I bring my low kms 2014 Mustang GT to for upgrades and modifications. I want to say that Alexis and her team of pro's are knowledgable and excellent at listening. I have brought my Mustang in for inspection on a body panel leak (fixed), engine performance upgrades, performance suspension and now a GT500 Ford Performance rear bumper conversion, side skirts and rear splitters.I honestly can't say enough of about them. They are experts in their field (especially Fords), really well priced and actually bill you for the time they work on your car. You know that feeling you get when you think a shop is charging more time than you think they should. That does NOT happen here. I appreciate how honest they are.I have ordered a GT500 front bumper conversion and will see Supertech this spring/summer for this work.
17:08 22 Mar 21
I brought my car in for a service and the team at SuperTech did an awesome job!There was some miscommunication and issues that came up but they promptly admitted fault and rectified said issues.Alexis and Dannelle handled everything very professionally and I am very satisfied. The technicians Tim and Pete were very approachable, friendly and knowledgeable. They were very patient as they explained the issues concerning my car.Overall a good first impression and good service! Will definitely recommend!
23:27 11 Mar 21
We took our BMW 328 in for regular service as they are one of the only shops in North Van with a BMW certified technician - and we had top notch service. We've since taken our other vehicle there for more lengthy repairs, and again, the service has been best in class. Alexis at the front desk is a super star - she goes the extra mile, keeps us in the loop and even went toe to toe with our warranty provider. Highly recommend Supertech.
23:48 01 Feb 21
Alexis was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, the techs are great and prices were good, I highly recommend supertech.
16:43 31 Jan 21
I’m so happy I found Supertech! From the moment I contacted the shop, it’s been nothing but professionalism, honesty and quality service. I highly recommend Alexis and her experienced team for anything related to your vehicle's repair

The brake line repair for my Honda Pilot (2005) was quoted at $1,600.00 at the Honda dealership in the North Shore Automall. Super tech fixed it for under $300. I was very pleased with the work.

22:06 21 Aug 20
I didn’t come in for service, but my 5 stars goes to Isaac! He noticed I was working on my car in my garage located directly at the back of their shop and he lent me a flashlight and asked if I needed anything else. I can already tell their service is top notch. Thanks Isaac!
21:20 18 Aug 20
Awesome Service and quick. Definetely reccomend these guys! Alexis at the front is awesome she kept me updated with texts and was a great help!
20:50 10 Aug 20
Excellent all round. I wasn't sure what was causing a muffler noise. They found it was something simple, fixed it and charged me only for labour, plus the oil/lube/filter I had done at the same time. Will definitely return for future services.
19:15 23 Jul 20
Car is running great! Alexis even went out of her way to text me a reminder of the appointment because I kept missing it! Also gave me a list of things I should be keeping an eye on to get looked at in the future.
16:47 15 Jul 20
Great customer service. Thank you
22:42 16 Jun 20
Had some maintenence done on two Porsches. Service Manager Alexis was very knowledgeable, and pleasant to talk to.Kirk is an outstanding mechanic. Keep up the good work.
18:11 10 Jun 20
The staff were extremely professional and friendly. They made sure to thoroughly understand the needs before starting to do any work and did a great job!
19:43 25 May 20
After getting fed lies from most Toyota shops I found this gem. Alexis and team knows what they're doing and are very organized. I am going there next time I have issues withawith my vehicle and you should too.
16:34 25 May 20
Great customer service and excellent mechanics here. Got rid of all the squeaks in my breaks and fixed my Ebrake in the process too. I’ll be back
16:38 21 May 20
00:44 11 Apr 20
I’ve been really happy with this shop. I feel like they are honest, reliable and the prices seem better than most of the competitors. Never had an issue with any of the work they’ve done for me!
20:22 09 Mar 20
I can’t say enough about this Auto Repair Shop. After calling a small handful of shops that I trust on the north shore, nobody could take me in this Jan 2nd 2020. Although I didn’t know them, Supertech was the only shop that would take me in right away. Once my car was in their hands it became obvious that Alexis was not just the receptionist but a professional service advisor who was able to dig up the parts needed to complete the job and to keep me informed along the way. Not always easy when your car is 34 years old I might add. Knowing how important it was for me to have my car ready before the weekend, not only did they get it done as promised but also within their initial price estimate. That Friday evening I got a call from Alexis to say my car was ready. Knowing how important it was for me to have the car ready for the weekend she offered to stay until I arrived by cab to pick it up. Where do you find that service anymore. I’m happy to have found this shop and would gladly recommend it to anyone.
20:39 03 Mar 20
The mechanics and staff are excellent! I have been going here for a few years and I can’t think of anyone else taking care of my car and me!
23:36 02 Mar 20
05:17 29 Feb 20
Alexis provides great service. Very impressed.
23:06 22 Feb 20

Service is prompt and friendly with detailed reports of the status of your vehicle all along the way. The constant communication builds a trusting relationship.
16:50 18 Feb 20
Very friendly, accommodating and professional service from Alexis, the Service Manager. Convenient location. Simple to understand report after oil change.
22:45 15 Feb 20
Excellent customer service and top quality work. Mechanics you can trust to do a consistently great job. Highly Recommend this shop.
19:27 08 Feb 20
Supertech provides excellent customer service and top quality repairs. Their team is completely trustworthy and upfront about vehicle issues. It's evident that the employees are treated with respect, and that translates into a cohesive team that will go the extra mile for you!
00:36 08 Feb 20
Great service and no bs attitude. Getting a comprehensive vehicle report for me to take home is something that sets these guys apart from the other mechanics i've been to.

Pleased with the work and quick turn around. Thank you
18:48 24 Jan 20
Friendly and knowledgeable staff, I've been taking my car here for a couple of years after a friend recommended them and I'd tried out other mechanics in the area. The Shop have always provided excellent service, cost effective, both friendly and knowledgeable, it's always hard to find good, trust worthy mechanics in a new town so I'm glad I found these guys and would strongly recommend them.
22:17 16 Jan 20
Very quick and precise results. They know the worth of every penny. Great staff!! Been going here for 5 years now.

19:57 16 Jul 19
I went in for a brake job and got a full inspection and a diagnosis of what was causing an engine whine, all at no extra charge. Also I like that they email pictures of the the worn parts and the full inspection report. Their technicians and front office staff are very knowledgeable.
20:51 09 Jul 19
I have been going to The Shop for 3 years and I fully trust Kyle and all his staff! Alexis is amazing! Everyone is extremely knowledgeable. Visits are always smooth. And Kyle will not over charge or have you do work that is not needed. When searching for a mechanic it’s like finding a good doctor! One who cares, who you can trust and feel comfortable in their hands. This is the best place for all of that! Highly highly recommended!!!! I have sent friends and they have never been happier.

The were extremely polite and they did difficult repairs in a shorter time and for less money then they had originally quoted me!
00:06 11 May 19
Been coming to this shop for years, always polite and professional. Kyle, Dennis and their crew are honest mechanics that don't screw you around and they'll get you back on the road. Alexis at the front desk is great, always communicates costs and what's being done clearly. You're in good hands with this crew.
20:22 23 Apr 19
19:24 09 Apr 19
I've been dealing with this shop for about 12 years, and I've always found them to be competent, prompt, reliable, honest and easy to do business with. I fully intend to continue my relationship with them in the foreseeable future.
20:43 04 Apr 19
Was very lucky when my brother found this place and has recommended me to go there for an inspection prior purchasing a used van. For a very reasonable price I got a thorough inspection done and all the details written up and even photographed. I don’t live in North Vancouver but I’ll be bringing my van back to this shop for service. Highly recommend.
17:56 03 Apr 19
Great service, friendly staff and they really care about their work. They will make sure it is done properly and with a reasonable price. I definitely recommend them.

Bought Mazda 3 in 2006. Been bringing it to Kyle and Dennis sonce then and its still running great. Nothing but great honest service from the guys. Alway refer any chance I get. Thanks guys!
07:31 29 Mar 19
The first time I found the shop was by accident and I couldn't be happier. I had a nail in my tire and the shop was close and about to close. Kyle took great care of me 5 minutes before closing for the day. Since then I've never gone anywhere else even though I live in Burnaby. They are worth the driving effort. One of the things I appreciate the most is that they always talk to me like I'm intelligent. Being a woman walking into a mechanics shop can be extremely frustrating. Many times shops have tried to take advantage of me thinking I don't know anything. But everyone at this shop has been good to me. Other reasons I love Kyle's shop: friendly staff, genuine care of their customers, and they never do unecessary work on my vehicle. I wish more business places were run like this one. Thanks Kyle, and your staff.
05:11 29 Mar 19
Kyle and the guys (and Alexis of course), are truly the best in the business. I've had only top notch service and the work is flawless. It sounds cliché but they really do care.
05:01 29 Mar 19
Great place ,won't take our vehicles anywhere else.
00:32 21 Mar 19
They did my job excellent, on time and with right cost.
21:08 11 Mar 19
Alexis at the front desk is a gem she explains everything in detail and is very thorough her communication with the mechanic is obvious as she relays the information to you. Our vehicle was in for out of province inspection since the vehicle is old it wasn’t exactly straight forward. The cost wasn’t outrageous either. They deserve your business !
22:32 28 Feb 19
Our entire family has had our vehicles looked after by Kyle and his amazing team since 2010. Everyone is always so helpful and professional.
21:14 28 Feb 19
21:00 28 Feb 19
I've been going to this shop for many years now and have never had a bad experience. They are always honest about what needs to be done, and I can highly recommend them!
17:34 12 Feb 19
The team at The Shop were very professional and accommodating to my specific needs. I was very pleased with the repairs done on my truck and appreciate greatly the extra steps Kyle took to ensure the service would not be too lengthy or costly. My new "go to" place for all of our vehicle repairs. Will definitely recommend The Shop to my friends and family!
22:21 11 Jan 19
Honest, quality work. Kyle and crew are the best on the North Shore. You will not be disappointed.
05:07 09 Jan 19
Honest, comprehensive and most of all, very friendly. They make bringing both my vehicles for repair stress free which is super key in this industry!
17:45 06 Jun 18
I have brought my car to Kyle and Dennis at Shortstop for over 5yrs. They are the best guys in the industry. No matter how busy their day has been, they always take the time to explain whats wrong with my vehicle, the repair process and provide the best deal possible. I have no reservations about recommending them to my friends and know that they have our best interests at heart.
15:43 13 Feb 18
Wow Short Stop Brake and Muffler . This is my BCAA mechanic Kyle the owner was very good of getting our GMC Truck back on the road. He even went out of his way to get our back sliding door fixed. Thank very much Short Stop Dennis and Kyle . I would highly recommend this shop to anybody !!!
21:49 11 Feb 18
Very honest and reliable full auto mechanic service station. Had the transfer case fixed. Top shelf mechanic. I recommend this place whole heartedly.
10:18 09 Dec 17
22:39 04 Nov 17
The guys at Shortstop are the best!Time and time again they've gone above and beyond to get me back on the road. I trust them completely and highly recommend!
14:37 14 Oct 17
We contacted Kyle 3 weeks ago for a last minute job on our brakes. Kyle took care of the issue and gave us a quote before fixing them.We arrived in anchorage, Alaska in the mean time and did not have any problems and the car rans smoothly.Thanks to Kyle and his team for the quick support and the good work on the vehicle.
06:24 13 Aug 17
Kyle is very honest and great.I went to fix the muffler but he didn't replace the muffler but ended up spending about an hour trying to find out the issue. (NO CHARGE!!!) He realized that transmission has some issue. He could just replace the muffler and charge me for the service but he told me to go to see transmission people before he replace the muffler.I have been going to this place and Kyle always go for extra miles for me to make sure everything is okay.Thank you, Kyle!
21:21 05 Apr 17
Taking your car to the mechanic for issues outside of regular maintenance can be unnerving. For those of us that do not possess an understanding of technical automobile repair, the diagnosis of the issue(s) in question can be perplexing to say the least. Adding to the dilemma, is the typical exorbitant costs and lengthy wait times required to get your car or truck back on the road. Since my first experience with a clutch and flywheel repair, these uncertainties have been completely receded. Over the years I have taken three different automobiles to Kyle, and with each visit he has taken the time to explain (in layman's terms) and point out any and all issues. In addition, he makes the effort to present all available solutions to the problem. Suffice to say, Short Stop Brake & Muffler is a place of integrity and the willingness to go the extra mile for you and your vehicle. Highly recommend.
19:48 22 Feb 17
Good price, great service.
02:45 27 Aug 16
If you want a mechanic who is fair, honest and willing to take time to do a thorough assessment, Kyle is the best.
16:53 18 May 16
What an eye opener- compared to my usual place. Kyle was friendly and went out of his way to get me rolling and back on the road. This is my new mechanic. Highly recommended.
01:29 10 May 16
I've been bringing my vehicles to Kyle and Dennis for years for routine brake, exhaust and general repairs. Their estimates don't creep up, and my car is finished by the time promised. The one time I had to wait longer than estimated on a repair was because Kyle stayed late to finish an intake manifold gasket replacement on my vehicle (a common and labourious problem with my model of Nissan). They did the repair for half the price that I would have paid at another shop.Never a hard sell with these guys, and they explain repairs (before and after) very clearly.

Great shop! Saved me some big trouble. I took my truck in for an oil change. They noticed that I had pretty significant damage to the drive shaft and sent me pictures and an explanation. Got a good price on the part and repaired quickly. Truck runs well - I'm happy.

Dealt with Short Stop twice so far.1) Had a loud muffler, I suspected was a flange gasket connecting the cat to the pipe. Took it to a 'reputable, well-known' muffler shop, quoted me a replacement from the header back...Short Stop had a look, took 2sec to diagnose the gasket and fixed it for under $100 same day. 2) Had a bad bearing ( I drive an old Subaru), wasn't the easiest of fixes. When they called to say they broke the spindle while trying to remove the bearing,and I wasn't too surprised (the car is 14years young). They sourced another of the broken part, put it in and also fixed a bad ABS sensor. However, there was an issue with the bearing they installed, as it was no better than the original problem (after a quick day or two of driving, was still humming/grinding). I brought it into Short Stop and they took it in and re-set the bearing all over again. Zero issues with it since, and they didn't charge me a cent more than the original quote + the small fee for the additional part they sourced. No extra labour, and repeatedly problem-solved until they fixed the problem. Will return, nice to have a shop that does quality work, honest, and fair quotes and service. I'd recommend them to folks for sure.

Very good price. Had my muffler replaced from the catalytic converter back with great workmanship. Also re-installed my speedo line without hesitations and filled my clutch fluid cause the mechanic seen it was low. No troubles at all. Very old fashioned service. Great place!!

Friendly, honest and excellently priced. I was going to sell my vehicle but there was a hole in the exhaust. One place (the one with the golden touch) quoted over $1500 after I explained I needed a cheap quick fix, and this was actually a minimum. Ridiculous. But a quick trip over to Dennis at ShortStop and he gave a quick assessment, and then when my car was up on the ramp phoned me to confirm it was my resonators. Instead of replacing an excessively expensive part, he fixed it. Actually both as both had blown. The price was a tiny fraction of the other place.More recently I decided to give my car a basic winter service and make sure everything was running ok for the colder weather. The guy understood exactly what was needed and turned it around in a couple hours. They were totally honest about everything and just replaced parts that needed replacing, and even phoned about a $16 part to make sure I was ok with it.Unless you maintain your own vehicle or have endless pockets, car ownership can be a bit of a nightmare when it comes to maintenance. But the guys at ShortStop on Marine Drive provide an excellent service, a sensible approach to maintenance, and at reasonable prices. They'll get my business every time!

Based on these reviews I decided to give this place a try. Absolutely excellent quality and service. Full examination, explanation with a quote before doing anything, and you won't beat the price. I'll be going here from now on for sure.
