    Default Car Repair- Medicine Hat

    Hey all,

    My mother in law is having issues with her Honda CRV and lives in Medicine Hat.

    Can anyone recommend a reputable shop down there?

    Cheers.

    Whats the issues? Different shops are better for certain things. Stay away from the honda dealership at all costs... Growing up in the hat being a car guy ends up with me knowing most of the mechanics.

    It sounds relatively minor, but I am not there to tinker to figure it out.

    Her CEL is on and has come on and off over the last couple days, already had her ensure the gas cap is tight, however it remains.
    She also mentioned her cigarette lighter stopped working (radar detector), so I assume that is a fuse.

    I told her to swing by partsource and have them scan it quick to see what code is popping up, other than the CEL its apparently running fine.

    I go to either Vossler Mechanical or Little Buddha when I need stuff done. No real preference either way.

    Greg Vossler at Vossler mechanical is a good guy and I’ve had a lot of friends go there for stuff (mostly diesel related). There’s also Octane Auto that has a lot of good reviews and is owned by a Beyonder with a lifetime of well-rounded automotive experience but I can’t remember his username on here! I’m sure he’ll chime in

    Really? There's a house in my neighborhood with 1 or 2 trucks parked out front with Octane Auto stickers in the window.
