Took my RV Trailer for MVI, service on electric brakes and tire issue. Kept me updated on their progress via email and text (you have the option to select how you want to be notified). Overall happy with the service, professional and knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone for trailer and automotive service.

I am thoroughly impressed with this shop. From the moment I arrived to check out time I felt welcomed by this professional group of individuals. Quality work, on time, on budget, what more could you ask for.

Truck runs great good guys

Marcus Chaisson May 5, 2023

Highly knowledgeable team at N.S. Diesel. Ran into a couple curveballs with repairs, beyond the control of the team, but they were able to have solutions and remedy. Thank you again

David Seguin Apr 4, 2023

Had the PCV Valve unit replaced and found this company to be very good with getting my car in and repaired on a timely fashion. Would totally recommend this group of professionals to all those folks out there with a Mercedes or I am sure any other brand that needs repairs done right. I have worked in the auto industry for over 42 years and can tell you these are the right group of professionals to repair your car right the first time around. Thanks to each and everyone on the team!!

Kevin Ashley Apr 4, 2023

Steve and his team are very friendly, knowledgeable and experienced. Great service all around!

Matthew McAllister Apr 4, 2023

Great, honest and clear communication from Brent. Would certainly come back. Not often I review anything but they went above and beyond to address my issue. True professionals.

Christopher Stoecker Apr 4, 2023

Efficient and professional. Service Rep Brent is knowledgeable and very helpful. I am pretty happy and definitely recommend NS Diesel & Auto.

Jimmy W. Ma Apr 4, 2023

Great price on some Continental tires. Kind of slow, but very nice folks. Would definitely recommend them! A little hard to find though. Forgot to mention, they offer loaners, which is awesome!

Shane D Apr 4, 2023

Great to deal with kept me very informed and took care of some unforseen issues at moment of repair, will do business and refer to others!!!

Justan Mar 3, 2023

Excellent service, very professional, friendly, and offered good advice. Would recommend them.

Sheila Harnish Mar 3, 2023

Steve, Brent and the team are awesome. The systems they use for communicating work orders, service issues and future signs of trouble is the best I have had in several provinces. Videos, photos and descriptive communication makes it very transparent and easy to understand. Highly recommend and will be using for future business and personal fleets.

Victor Norton Feb 2, 2023

Shawn Guy Jan 1, 2023

Excellent customer Service, fast.

Tim Gerrard Jan 1, 2023

Very prompt, had appt two days from contacting them. Entire process very professional, knowledgeable techs, well-equipped shop. Very good rates, received detailed before/after printout of suspension settings. Everything checked for damage or wear, no attempts to pad price with unneeded parts or tasks. You won't feel like you are on defensive with these people--business the way it should be.

Gregory Blackman Jan 1, 2023

Friendly and timely service. They went the extra mile to save money and still provide a superior fix. These guys know diesels, highly recommend them for your next repair.

These guys are extremely professional and good at what they do. Was very impressed with the service and will definitely be back for more work on my truck.

Ryan Jordan Jan 1, 2023

I always trust my car with the NS Diesel team! It's the only shop I go to and they never let me down. I'm always able to get an appointment that is convenient for me and they are upfront with work and prices if they find anything additional that needs to be done when I go in. I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone! Thanks team!

Rachel Forrest Nov 11, 2022

NS Diesel is beyond professional and their communication is excellent. They give you full reports on your truck and what is needed and what can wait. I have an older Cummins and every time I get my truck back it feels tuned and tight. You always know the work was done properly and never have to worry as they have your best interest in mind.

geoff Olsson Nov 11, 2022

Excellent business. Was able to solve an issue with vehicle that a dealership could not. Thank you Steve!!

Byron Randall Nov 11, 2022

Nothing but the best of service as always! Only spot our vehicles go.

Nicholas Scott Nov 11, 2022

Picked up a screw in one of my tires, got it fix right away. Great service.

Lewis Boland Oct 10, 2022

Very courteous, friendly and most of all professional staff, the tech that was assigned to my truck did a top notch job.

Mike Morash Sep 9, 2022

Had nothing but an absolute positive experience with Steve, Brent, Rick and the team at NS Diesel. They were friendly, knowledgeable and fast diagnosing the vehicle I sent up to them. They sent be back a completely detailed inspection/diagnosis with screen shots of the scanner, the failed parts and a full, complete work up with quote on the vehicle. Impressive is an understatment, I was blown away by the professionalism of the team and would absolutely recommend anyone visit them for their diesel needs.

Adam Crouse Sep 9, 2022

After 2.5 weeks without my truck and calling numerous diesel mechanics (who couldn’t get my truck in for WEEKS and one who said they could do the work but once my truck got towed there they actually couldn't do the work) I found NS Diesel and thankfully I did. They had my truck in and fixed within a week. Great service and even better customer service, thanks so much to the team at NS Diesel!

Kyle MacDonald Sep 9, 2022

I came in on a CAA flatbed. Engine cranks over, won't start. 1998 Tahoe Diesel, 6.5litre. I have no idea what is wrong. Last shop I had it to, don't work on diesel pick ups anymore. Googled diesel shops in the area and found this shop. I was pleasantly greeted by Norman, explained my situation and left there feeling re-assured my truck was in good hands! He kept me posted up to date as to the work that was being done! Full diagnostics were done and printed off for me. They searched and found the problem. Called me, explained the issues and had the go ahead. Norman calls a few days later, truck is done and ready to go! We were most impressed in the communication back and forth, clean shop, pleasant staff and an enjoyable experience! I would highly recommended this shop for all your diesel needs. I am glad I have finally found a reliable, honest shop, close location and 100% satisfied to recommend. Thank You again Nova Scotia Automotive! Sincerely Scott & Michelle Stannard Warne

Scott Warne Sep 9, 2022

They know there stuff- Great crew!

Chad Kennedy's Autopro Sep 9, 2022

(Translated by Google) We asked Steve to give our Ford F350 Super Duty a total overhaul after 3 long years in a warehouse. We received a written detailed diagnosis report with pictures, which we have never seen before. Everything has been checked and repaired to our complete satisfaction. This is one of the rare very good auto repair shops. Highly Recommended. (Original) Wir haben Steve gebeten unseren Ford F350 Super Duty nach 3 langen Jahren in einem Lager total durch zu checken. Wir haben einen schriftlich detaillierten Diagnose Rapport mit Bildern erhalten, was wir bisher noch nie gesehen haben. Alles wurde zu unserer vollen Zufriedenheit geprüft und repariert. Das ist eine der seltenen sehr guten Autowerkstätten. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Zoltan & Tara Sep 9, 2022

Excellent service on my 25’ Diesel Sprinter chassis RV. Technicians were skilled and persistent in tracking down and fixing the problem. This will be my go to repair shop from now on!

Gordon G Hippern Aug 8, 2022

Service (seized slideout mechanism and awining inspection on my 5th wheel) provided by Steve. He was professional, polite and took the time to explain procédures and future maintenance.

Ulysses Lahaie Aug 8, 2022

I had my safety inspection done on my hardtop camper on Aug 11. They were very professional and looked after my needs. Thank you for your help.

Michael Leclair Aug 8, 2022

Everything was great! Will be back anytime I need work on my truck.

James Kim Aug 8, 2022

Second time coming here after they were the only ones able to fix my DEF system error, very transparent and informative with me on the process. came back today for oil change, brakes, and suspension upgrade and they once again were very helpful the whole time, didn't push anything on me, and showed me in person some things to keep an eye on for wear and tear.

Jay Jillard Aug 8, 2022

The Team at NS Diesel did an excellent job on the work to my truck. I have had my vehicle there 4-5 times now for routine service, repairs, and a couple upgrades. Work has always been done properly and on time. Thanks again

Dale Williams Nov 11, 2021

Very accommodating folks. Looked after my 5th wheel trailer for an issue. Fixed it up good, and both $$ and time came in as promised. Will definitely be back to them if needing work for my 5th wheel again. May even consider for my Ram3500 diesel, when/if it needs something.

JoanneAndJohn Kerr Jul 7, 2022

David Ramsay Jul 7, 2022

You will not go wrong trusting your vehicle with Steve and his team. Great service and trustworthy.

L Rodenkirchen Jun 6, 2022

I have to admit that the number of 5 star reviews seemed unlikely: now I get it! Couldn’t ask for more personable staff and they found the problem with my motorhome generator and fixed it for a reasonable price. I’ll be back!

John Glover Jun 6, 2022

Brad Runtz Jun 6, 2022
