As a woman who knows nothing about cars, and even with male mechanic friends feeding me advise, I have never trusted mechanics. Now, I do. Marty at Crowfoot Minit-Tune in Calgary was unbelievably helpful and honest with me and helped me figure out what to do with my old car, without an agenda to increase his business. Not only would I come back here for anything car related, but I feel so grateful that honest and awesome mechanic shops are out there.

Thank you Sue. We appreciate your taking the time to provide us with a review.

Just got off the phone with a very rude man. Asked about my brake issues and he rudely said to me that he could not diagnose over the phone and if I was booking an appointment. Sorry bud, whether or not you can diagnose over the phone- you don't need to be rude.

Hi Alicia, thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review. I apologize if my bluntness came across as rude to you. It would have been unprofessional for me to provide you with a diagnosis over the phone as it would have been a guess at best without seeing your vehicle first and ultimately I am not a licensed mechanic so I let the professionals do that job.

Amazing service at Minit-Tune & Brake in Crowfoot! I called yesterday to see if they could get me in today to check my noisy muffler and sure enough they could at 10am. I mentioned I had to be in a meeting at 1:30pm today and they said it would not be an issue. During my visit, Marty took me inside the shop while my car was on the lift and running to show me the problem - the catalytic converter and flex pipe needed replacing. Marty then quoted me and said the part was on the way from South Calgary and he should have my car done by 1pm or 2pm. I mentioned that I had to leave by 1pm for my meeting and he said if it wasn't ready by then, he'd arrange a ride for me to the meeting and back. At 12:15pm I was having lunch when the phone rang and it was Marty notifying me my car was ready to go! I can't say enough about the customer service, honesty, integrity and clear communication this shop offers. I come from a family of mechanics and I'm sure they would agree that Minit-Tune & Brake is top notch. I highly recommend them for any muffler and break repair!

Thank you for the review Vanessa. It was a pleasure to serve you.

Phoned and they only will use parts that they order, not customer parts. All these reviews about decent mechanics and because I wanted to save some money ordering a part myself, they won't do the work because it's against their policy.

Jordon, we thank you for the call however the service you are looking for is simply one we do not offer. If you would like to know the price of the complete repair we would be happy to offer it to you.

Took my Honda Civic in to get the AC recharged. Work was done well, friendly, on time and for the price quoted. They suggested my brakes need to be done... and I believe them to be true. The price they quoted was half what I paid last time I did my brakes, I will be scheduling the works soon. Marty is a friendly and by my account honest guy I can trust.

Thank you for the kind words Donald.

I went to get my tire repaired. They told me the tires were too worn and needed new ones. I know they all try this, but I decided to get them since it had been 77,000 km. After they were finished they asked if my engine ever not started. I told them never even in -20 without plugging it in. They said it didn't start once for them and I needed a new battery. I said no as it has always been good with no problem. I'm a little sceptical of this place.

Thank you for your review Jane. The two tires we replaced for you were due to them being worn down to the wear bars and not worth repairing, and as you stated they had 77,000 kms on them. Just like your tires, the battery has been in use since 2010, a typical battery lasts 4-5 years on average, so it is not unreasonable to expect you to have to replace your battery this year.

Good service, staff was knowledgeable and what I appreciated the most is they didn't try to up-sell me on things I didn't need. Gave me honest feedback. Will be back for sure.

Thank you for your kind words.

Courteous and friendly professional service, without the line-ups. Could be more competitive on pricing.

Thank you for the feedback.
