Excellent, trustworthy and efficient - what more could you ask for?

We've only been customers for the past couple years, but the service has always been excellent and courteous and our mini-van has performed very well with the routine maintenance and servicing.
Bernie is thorough and clear with what has been done and what should be done.
High recommendations for this place!

trusted mechanic

We had a great experience with Pawlik and they are trusted repairman. Great service and they will never charge you for the repair that you don't need. I will definitely recommend Pawlik to anyone who is looking for auto repair shop.

Thank You!!!

I am very glad to have found Bernie and his crew. I had big problems with my (very badly) rebuilt 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee - swirl motor, amongst other things. I was turned down by my most recent repair shop, also by Marine Chrysler! They were honest enough to let me know, that they didn't have a good enough Diesel mechanic!!!
So, once again, I am very glad to have found Pawlik Automotive. It was well worth a couple of bus trips from East Vancouver!

The Best

Bernie Pawlik & team have taken care of my car, and my father's car for approx. 15 yrs. They are skilled, professional and honest. I highly recommend Pawlik Automotive.

years and years and years of excellent service

Bernie has looked after our family cars since the early '90's: a 1982 Tercel, a 1992 Dodge Caravan, and a 2002 Infiniti as well as other cars belonging to my children. I can't say enough good things about Bernie, his team, and the excellent service they provide.

They're prompt, on budget, with all necessary repairs taken care of as required. After the diagnostic, they'll let you know if something looks as though it could be "iffy" but will also let you know either that the car doesn't need that particular problem taken care of now or that it should be done. Talk about honest! In the past, other mechanics have seen me coming and my car's problems seemed like a Doomsday prediction. Not Bernie. What you need is what you get.

I just wouldn't consider taking my car anywhere else and have recommended Pawlik Automotive to all of my friends. All. Thank you, Bernie.

A Daunting Undertaking

Our 2006 Ford 6.0L diesel one ton pick-up had a problem with coolant disappearing and premature plugging of the E.G.R. valve ever since we purchased it from a Ford dealer three years ago.

After several tow jobs and many vague and indifferent responses regarding warranty work from Ford dealership shops ... I decided to get the problem fixed once and for all.

Fortunately I happened on Bernie's most excellent web site on the internet. The necessary repairs were done on time and on budget. Even though it was basically just a head gasket replacement ... the scope of the repair on newer model vehicles like ours is massive.

And as if the excellent repairs were not enough ... Bernie was also able to get a significant portion of the cost of repair covered by our extended warrantee company.

We live on a very remote Lighthouse for eleven months of the year and the truck is parked during that time. When we do come out for a holiday ... we want to be able to just hook up to our 5th wheel R.V. trailer and have a normal holiday somewhere.

The trailer dollied down somewhere we'd rather not be ... while the truck sits in some Ford garage waiting for the 'same ol' ... same ol' excuses certainly is not our idea of a normal holiday.

Define 'normal' I suppose.

Now the truck runs better than new. You've repaired all that you said you would ... and then some. The peace of mind we now have with the motor and the complete vehicle is priceless.

Bernie ... you and your team are number one ... and deservedly so by any account.

I highly recommend Pawlik Automotoive Repair

Last year (Nov 2011), I dropped by Pawlik Automotive and told them that I intend to drive my 1993 Mazda Miata all over North America (8 hours a day or more for a month) and that I want to be sure it would work well.... they took care of the car, did a diagnosis, called me to make recommendations and got all the work done in a timely and a professional manner

As I started my month long trip, I was impressed on how the car was working very well. It was great to feel secure knowing that Pawlik's team took care of the car and I have nothing to worry about.

Not only that, over the past year, couple other mechanics (in the USA and Montreal) looked at the car for minor work and they both stated that "the car is well taken care off" and that "the mechanic fixing your car (Pawlik Automotive) did a great job".

Finally, I drove the car back to BC in Nov 2012 and, again, I went to Pawlik Automative to do another full checkup on the car.

in summary, I trust them. I know they do good work. and I would highly recommend them.

YOU NEVER RECOMMEND EXPENSIVE ‘TREATMENTS’ THAT ARE NOT NECESSARY

Bringing my car to you for regular service checkups is like having a marvelous family doctor who practices preventative medicine. It gives me total peace of mind knowing that you not only keep my car running safely, but will diagnose and nip problems in the bud before they become major (i.e. costly!) health issues. And yet you never recommend expensive ‘treatments’ that are not necessary – or before they are necessary.

All this is what I call holistic auto health care! It’s not just good for the cars, it’s good for us too! You have taken so much of the stress out of owning and running a car that I wouldn’t even consider taking my car anywhere else.

A GOOD, HONEST MECHANIC IS SOMEONE TO HAVE ON YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST. PAWLIK AUTOMOTIVE IS ON THE TOP OF MINE.

I have spent many years in the automotive industry and had the fortunate and unfortunate opportunities to work with many different auto service shops. I’ve had all sorts of vehicles in Bernie’s care: from old dirty Dodge trucks to Porsche 911?s and honestly, not a penny spent has ever been questioned, hesitated or regretted.
