I wasn't that impressed by MTA Automotive in Vancouver Mall area. I took my car in for a check engine light and whatever repairs would go along with fixing the light. First, I was very glad I printed out a couple coupons on their website before I showed up because just checking the engine light would've cost me $100. Which with the coupon I got for free with the repairs, but I have had the light checked before completely free of charge. Plus I think I can buy an cheap Automotive Diagnostic Scanner for about that price.
I called them to set up an appointment and after I dropped off my car it took them about 4 hours just to call me to tell me what the issues were and an estimate. The day was basically over at that point. They tried to sell me on a battery cleaning for $35. You can easily do that yourself with a little baking soda, water and an old tooth brush for 10 minutes.
I also asked them if they didn't mind checking my drivers side blinker because even after replacing the bulb a month ago it stopped working. They said they would take a look at it but labor would be $100 an hour. NO THANK YOU! I'll save my money and find somebody to do it cheap.
I ended up needing my temperature gauge replaced and they sold me on a tune up. They gave me an estimate of $530 and I ended up paying $630. I was not impressed by their prices. They seemed very knowledgeable and gave me good recommendations on other repairs I should do on my car but if I do, I might go somewhere a little cheaper. They gave me a courtesy call a week later to check up on the car which was nice, but I just can shell out that kind of money. I'm just glad I finally got my car repaired.
