Yes, We Service Land Rover (And Range Rover Too)

Range Rover Land Rover

Land Rover has established a reputation as a fabulously reliable go anywhere vehicle. For decades they have been found at all corners of the globe driving on hard pavement or just as easily, where no road exists! We service Land Rover and the very luxurious Range Rover at Pawlik Automotive with care, expertise and the latest diagnostic equipment.

For many years British vehicles had a horrible reputation as being unreliable and older Land Rovers were not without fault. That however has changed: these vehicles are very well built, are extremely reliable and best of all, parts are readily available. We look forward to taking care of your Land Rover or Range Rover with our expert care and service.

Auto Inspection report

”In all my years this is the most thorough inspection anyone has done on my truck.”
Auto Inspection report
This comment came from a new client as I explained the findings of our comprehensive inspection on his 1994 Ford F250 Diesel Pick up. For a man in his seventies who had owned this vehicle and others for many years I took this as a great compliment and a testament to the thoroughness of the service that we offer at Pawlik Automotive.

We look at cars and trucks in a complete way and strive to educate you about your whole vehicle so that you can make good choices about how to care for it. Our car inspections are very thorough and help save you money.

A Paradox: A Complicated Simple Repair

Corroded Fuse contacts

Part of what makes our job fun as auto service technicians is that we never know what we will encounter from day to day.

Case in point: a new client came in with 2003 Ford F150 pickup with the concern that his A/C (air conditioning) was inoperative. John went straight to work on the diagnosis and determined that the electrical side of the system was not functioning. Fuses were tested and all were good, but still there was no power at the A/C control panel on the dash.

With perseverance he finally found a most unusual cause of the concern: the contacts between the fuse and the fuse box had corrosion, blocking flow of the electricity. The corrosion was on the load side of the fuse which made it appear that the concern was elsewhere. After cleaning the corrosion in the fuse box and installing a new fuse, the A/C functioned perfectly.

Corroded but not blown!

Good news about the HST

With the HST now implemented in BC here’s some good news: Car repair and maintenance isn’t going to cost you a dollar more – even with HST.

That’s because car repairs for the past 10 or so years have been subject to PST and GST on labour and parts. You’ve already been paying the full pop.

I know that this really isn’t great news but at least it is one thing that won’t be costing you more. If you own a business the HST now becomes a 12% input tax credit as opposed to the 5% of the GST.

Happy Motoring!
