DRIVE CLEAN REPAIRS

We are a drive clean certified repair facility and can diagnose your drive clean failure usually within 2.5 hours.  Diagnosis must be accurate and methodical to repair a failure properly.  Beware of shops having set rates for drive clean repair since there are so many variables that can cause failures.  Each vehicle must be assessed based on it’s current physical condition, mileage, and often unique circumstances and driver habits that apply only to that vehicle.  You always have the choice to either repair the problem completely or repair up to the $450.00 (excluding taxes and shop supplies) repair cost limit with a properly completed ERRD form which you must submit to the test facility after repairs are completed at our garage.

I TRULY BELIEVE JIM SAVED ME HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS

In one word … Integrity.
Jim is not only very knowledgeable, but takes the time to rationally explain the problem and the cost.

My family and I moved to Ottawa from B.C. last year and we had an older/low mileage Toyota truck that had to pass the “Clean Air Program”. After taking it both to Canadian Tire and the dealership, I was told that I would need to overhaul the cylinder heads (meaning a new motor!). We were fortunate to be referred to Jim. Jim and his staff proceeded to do a complete diagnostic of the exhaust system. He discovered that it was simply a leak in the exhaust manifold. I truly believe Jim saved me hundreds if not thousands in not having to replace the motor and by correcting the real problem.

Courtesy and personable service.
Good value for the money!

DRIVE CLEAN REPAIRS TESTIMONIAL

Thanks for the Kind Words

“My 97 Malibu with 440,000 k’s failed emission test. I was told that even with repairs probably wouldn’t pass but I would get a conditional for 2 years. It passed!!! YAHOO. Jim took me in quickly with my emergency. Was frank about prospect and did the job and I passed” ~ Bob Hough


TESTIMONIAL

“I have been dealing with Jim Dickinson Auto Tech and feel the staff and owner are completely trustworthy in the care for the repairs and maintenance visits with my car.  When the brake fluid line broke on my car Jim & staff kept the shop open later than usual to fix the problem because I needed my car the next day.  Knowledge & confidence- I know my car is in safe and good  working order at all times, even though it is an 1991 model.  Also the security of passing a recent government fuel emission central test.” ~ Jocelyne Lachance
