What we do

Automotive Repair

Pawlik Automotive is an owner run, boutique automotive repair shop located in South Vancouver that’s been around for more than 30 years.  During the last 10 years the Georgia Straight has voted us the Best Auto Repair Shop in Vancouver.

In an industry not always known for its ethics, we attribute our success to our transparency, honesty and value for service. For our clients this means they can trust us to provide quality service. And for our employees, this means that they get to focus on quality rather than quantity for loyal customers who value well maintained cars.

We service a wide variety of car and light truck makes and models. For our Technicians and Service Advisors, this means variety in the work you do, from easy basic maintenance to complex diagnostics and challenging engine replacements. And if you’re talented and have a specialty or interest in a particular area, we will make sure you get additional training and the opportunity to practice your craft.

Our shop is bright and very well equipped with modern tools and equipment, so doing your job is a lot easier. We always strive to make things better with efficient systems and procedures to ensure that all jobs are done easily and consistently.  For our employees this means the work environment is more fun with happier people because we’ve reduced the frustration and stress often found in the automotive repair industry. 

All our employees work in a well maintained, bright automotive repair shop and office with the latest equipment; enjoy each other’s company and have a lot of fun together; as well as great hourly pay, performance bonuses, an excellent benefit plan and evenings and weekends off.
