This email is long overdue, and is something that I've been meaning to send for some time now. I wanted to take the time to tell you how absolutely wonderful our local Master Mechanic is! It's the one on Howard Park (and Dundas). Josie and Shawn are amazing! We have been taking our vehicles to them for years now and the service that we receive from them is outstanding! My husband and I trust and value their opinion. They are always willing to accommodate and work around our schedules. We're so lucky to have them in our neighbourhood just a walk away and we recommend them to many of our friends and neighbours in the area. They truly are the epitome of service and an asset to the Master Mechanic franchise! Thanks!

I was recently at your location to have a e test done on my vehicle. I am not from Toronto and don't know the area at all. So after hours of being lost and frustrated I found this location. I dealt with Josie and what a great experience this was. I needed information on where the DMV was and she printed me out directions. She is amazing. However I found all your employees at this location to be very professional and friendly. This was a high time in my day to speak with people so friendly not to mention helpful. Thank you so much for such an amazing experience , there isn't many garages that treat a woman so well. Keep up the great work. Many Thanks

I have been a customer at the High Park Master Mechanic location for the last couple of years. I'd like to take a moment to give some much deserved credit and recognition where it is due. As a woman I have had my wallet taken for a joyride by numerous mechanics and can't even begin to express how thankful I am that a friend recommended this shop to me. The quality of service is incomparable and delivered in such a personable manner. The staff are awesome! Sean and Josie always take the time to explain to me what the exact problem is with my truck in terminology I can understand and when I leave here I know my truck is in good hands getting the love and fixing it needs. The cost of repairs are always reasonable and completed in a very efficient time. I've never had a bad experience here and it's a great feeling knowing that I am dealing with the most honest and trustworthy mechanics I have ever met. Thank you for having such amazing people working for you. I don't look forward to my truck breaking down on me again but if and when it does I guarantee I will be returning here! A big thank you to everybody at this location!!

Josie and Seam have been so helpful, honest and polite whenever we've need help...answering questions, changing tires, checking suspension, etc. Thanks to all for the great service and all the best for the new year!

I have been coming to this location for quite some time and have never had a bad experience. The staff is great! The mechanics take the time to explain what issues your car has and they even show you while your car is on the hoist. They also give recommendations on work that should be done soon. Josie is always greeting customers with a smile and always tries to get the best appointment times that accommodate me. This location was recommended to me from my brother who also had come here and I'm glad he did.

I recently took my car into the Howard Park location of Master Mechanic and thought their customer service was brilliant. I have a new baby and the staff opened the door for me to get in and out and generally the people who work there are amazing. After they finished servicing my car I even received a VIP card. I mentioned to the gentleman who serviced me that the VIP service was new and he informed me it wasn't. Josie even contacted me to say they would honour a few services because of my loyalty to the Master Mechanic that I have been taking my car to in Mississauga, which was very sweet of her to do but was totally unnecessary. Thanks so much and Merry Christmas.

I am writing to express my gratitude for the excellent service I received from Josie and her team at Master Mechanic in High Park. I have taken my car in for service twice now and was given great service on both occasions. I am on a very tight budget and Josie really worked to offer me solutions that were manageable, even saving me hundreds of dollars by suggesting I take a look at possible recalls on my vehicle. I realize this meant not making money from my repairs, but it`s the reason that I will continue to keep going back, and will tell my friends and family about it! I have dealt with shady garages and overcharging in the past and I feel that I was treated honestly... unfortunately a rarity in my experience. Keep up the great work!

Just a short note to say thanks to Josie and her mechanics for several excellent experiences. With each visit they provided a detailed explanation of the problem and an accurate estimate of the cost. The mechanic showed me the problem while my car was on the hoist. I received my car on time and on cost. What I really appreciated and have never happened at any other service station was the follow up phone call asking if all was OK with the car. I plan to use there services for my car repairs in the future. I am recommending Master Mechanic to anyone who needs their vehicle repaired or serviced. Thanks for everything!!!!

I've been a loyal customer of Master Mechanic High Park for the last 4 years. I must say they are honest, reasonably priced and have the best customer service shop in town. I personally commute over 20km just to come to their shop. I have several shops within my neighbourhood however none of them compare to the service and quality I get from the Master Mechanic High Park location. I have referred over 20 friends, family and co-worked to their shop and they have also had a positive experience.

The mechanics at Master Mechanic High Park that have serviced my vehicles are very knowledgeable and are all licensed mechanics. All their licenses are awards are displayed in the front office, which is comforting. I love the fact that at Master Mechanic you can actually speak with the mechanic that worked on your vehicle. They explain things in "plain English" as opposed to other shops who beat around the bush and using complicated tech language to explain something to you. I like the fact that if they came across any other mechanical/wear and tear issue they'd bring it my attention immediately and instruct me on when to repair and how much it would typically cost.

Overall, I have had a positive experience and would highly recommend other to have their vehicles serviced at Master Mechanic High Park. Thank you so much for you honesty and quality work.

Josie and Team, Thank you for your hard work, honesty and superb service. As a female that has to rely on the expertise of the mechanic I bring my vehicle to, I appreciate your honesty and hard work. My car was fixed and ready for me all within a few hours, the team contacted me to let me know how things were going and called again when everything was ready to do. When I first called it was almost closing time and Josie still offered for me to bring my car in to see if it was still drivable (the engine light was on). You now have a loyal customer who will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for superb service by honest mechanics.

Thanks for the great service! We began experiencing difficulties and you helped us figure out what was going on and got us in the right direction for repairs. The extra effort locating a part and getting it installed were herculean!really. We understand how challenging it was and appreciate all the effort put forth. Not only that, the staff was so friendly and willing to discuss any of my concerns. I was impressed! I will tell all my friends and family to check out your shop because we won’t take “Rocky” anywhere else! Master Mechanic not only solves your car’s problems, they make you feel like family.

I just visited your High Park location and the service was excellent. I was in for an oil change and once over on my vehicle. Josie took the time to go over the report and review my options. It was great to be able to talk to the mechanic that worked on my car. The rear view customer service hanger even stated the mechanics name – great personal touch – great work Rui! I will definitely be telling my friends and family about Master Mechanic.

Last weekend I called to book an oil change. I was sqeezed in on a busy Saturday and I dropped my car off in the morning. In the early afternoon, I return to check on my car. While waiting for the oil change, I fell really ill with food poisoning. Josie and all of the mechanics were extremely helpful and understanding. They went above and beyond to make me comfortable. They drove me home and dropped my car off when the oil change was complete. Sometimes you have to rely on the kindness of strangers. The whole team at Master Mechanic went above and beyond basic customer service – not only completing the check up and oil change at a decent price but also helping me out when I was in a rough spot. I will be telling everyone of the great experience I had at the shop.

I wanted to say a huge thank you to the Master Mechanic staff at High Park. I came in for service and I was very impressed with how personable and helpful everyone was. They went through their recommendations thoroughly so that I fully understood and the shop was well maintained and very clean. I'll be sure to refer them to all of my friends & family. Great job Josie & staff.

I am writing this note to let you know that Josie is so positive and professional. A few weeks ago I called her late in the afternoon almost at closing time, and she was very courteous and understanding. She waited until I arrived after 6:00PM with a pleasant smile and told me that they had a car to loan me. That was great news to me as I live in Mississauga. The next day I was going on holidays, and when I called her, she told me the car would be ready at noon. This is what I call great service! I will recommend Master Mechanic to all my friends and acquaintances!congratulations on a great team.

I have gone to Master Mechanic High Park for over a year, and they have treated me (and my cars) better than anyone! They are friendly, informative, helpful and honest with regards to what maintenance is necessary (quite refreshing). Although I live in Woodbridge, it is worth the drive to High Park for service. I always take my cars to them. Josie was helpful in making sure I was able to book an appointment so I could get on with my workday. I highly recommend them. They are the nicest and most honest mechanics I have ever had. Thank you so much for all your help. I will be telling my customers and friends about your great service.

I am taking a few moments to write you to tell you how pleased I was and continue to be with the service I receive at your High Park store. I have had many experiences with other garages and this one is the best. In fact, I would venture to say that this location could be your model store for customer service and satisfaction. My vehicle is always fixed right, on time, the first time!not to mention the polite and always smiling faces of Josie and Rui. This team goes above and beyond to satisfy their customer, a welcome surprise in this day and age of dying customer service.

I am a client at Master Mechanic High Park. I have always received great service at this location and have been going there for quite a few years now. (I was their first VW Beetle). Recently, they looked after me after they were closed.... after hours! This customer service is above and beyond. I can not even begin to express my gratitude and thanks. This is definitely where customer loyalty paid off. I will continue to be a client of theirs...always. I will recommend them to everyone!! It is people like this that give your company a good name and deservedly so.

A few months back I was referred by my local mechanic to MM for an e-test. It was such a comforting experience, for a change. I was taken back by the honest customer service extended towards a female car owner. I am now a regular customer and have only spoken highly of the personable mechanics there.
