Got an appointment for an MVI on my camper within a week. It did not need any work so it passed. They were honest and did not try to upsell me to get additional service. Staff were polite and even came out to line up the camper so that I could hook up and pull it out around the other vehicles that would have made it difficult to do so.

Sweetgrass & Sage May 5, 2024

As always the service and work was great. Thanks

Brian MacDonald Feb 2, 2024

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!

Great experience at NS Diesel & Automotive. I needed an alignment and while doing the work they notice my vehicle inspection was overdue. They gave me a call and were able to fit me in and do some additional work to complete the inspection, the work was needed. I found them professional and cost effective, cheers to the staff!

Steve Newson Apr 4, 2024

Very friendly,great service,reasonable priced.

Wanda Goodhew Apr 4, 2024

The Team at NS Diesel did an excellent job on the work to my truck. I have had my vehicle there many 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

This is our 3rd time at NS Diesel and the level of service continues to impress us. My daughter (17) bought a 1998 Lexus so difficult to source parts and Alex has been super helpful in confirming we have ordered what is needed for the work. He provided regular updates on the rear differential bushing work we had done which Hazel really appreciated as it was a big job that had her car in the shop a few days AND it came in under the original quote, due to the amazing tech who worked on it. She will always come back as she has felt heard about her concerns, and the service is excellent. You have a customer for life and she recommends you all the time!

Bit of a long post....I took a van in after another Diesel company refused to work on it because they said it was too time consuming and didn't want to hold up a bay. Fine. I showed NS Diesel & Automotive what the original company said was wrong with the van and they had no issue in repairing it. They diagnosed it first and low and behold, the original company was incorrect. Reason I am impressed with using this company is the paperwork, they wrote down everything little thing they did (like welding a bolt), & they had pictures on the email to show me what was wrong. Not once did I feel like the van was a burden. They kept me informed the entire time. They gave me a 6-month checkup appointment for the van (that is better than the dentist's office). I know diesel mechanics are hard to come by and they are swamped for time, but I feel they were more than thorough on the van that has over 300,000 on it. The other company told me I should just put it out to pasture. For me it is the little things that make a company good. The technician kept the service advisor, Brent, informed the entire time because he had answers right away when I would call. NS Diesel & Automotive did this and will make me go back.

Lisa Mcdonald Apr 4, 2024

Matt Mcmurren Apr 4, 2024

Pleased with the service. Staff were Very professional and courteous. Plan to keep this shop as my service provider going forward. With our buisness if the wheels aren’t turning we ain’t earning. NS Diesel got us in the door on short notice and more importantly out the door quickly. Keeping “Debbie Diesel” Triple V’s Queen of the fleet safely on the road

John MacDonald Jan 1, 2024

I had transmission issues with my car,googled about car workshops in halifax that can fix it,and came across Ns diesel. Gave them a call and booked an appointment for a date and time convenient for me.Ns diesel ran a full diagnostic and test drove my car and discovered the the transmission issue and "check engine light "was caused by some chafed wires.Wires were fixed and car is back to normal.Professionally,sent me pictures and updates of the diagnosis. Shout out to Brent and the crew. Keep up the good work!

Chimezie mberekpe Jan 1, 2024

The staff and services carried out by the crew at NS diesel was top notch. I had quotes from 3 vendors all within several hundred dollars of each other. NS diesel, while not the cheapest, had the best customer service and answered all my questions with confidence and knowledge far exceeding the competition. I would recommend NS diesel to anyone requiring service to their vehicle.

Gordon Williamson Jan 1, 2024

1st time bringing my Dodge Grand Caravan for an engine failure issue. Staff was very kind, knowledgeable & communicating. Got a quick appointment within few days. Given the urgency, as I had to rent a car meanwhile, repairs were done in priority. Perfect system in place to keep client informed of what is being done on the vehicle + photo proof report. I am totally satisfied with the work done and highly recommend this workshop against ANY Dodge dealership.

Henry Loo Chin Moy Jan 1, 2024

Great spot to go! After a few unexpected breakdowns after the Christmas break ns diesel got us back on the road. Thanks guys!

d hood Jan 1, 2024

I was delighted with the experience of taking my 1997 Dodge RV class B to the NS diesel folks, they diagnosed my check engine light, changed wipers and headlights, I would certainly return, I found them helpful and very professional-Thank You!

Great service. Staff are professional and communication was very good with booking my car. They were thorough with their inspection of my car and I feel confident that they addressed the issues. Highly recommend this business.

Brenda Cote Nov 11, 2023

Update a year later - still having great experience for both my diesel truck and German car. I would still recommend this shop. Had a number of repairs this year as one does from a 7 yr old diesel truck, especially as one does from emissions systems the year the warranty ends. They did the correct repairs for the problems each time and had my truck operating optimally and back on the road as soon as possible. Thank you! __________ Great service at relatively reasonable costs, I've found my go-to repair shop in the HRM for my truck and my spouse's car. I first came for issues with my diesel truck, a specific repair that tends to either be an expensive one or a prohibitively expensive one, depending on the state of the engine component involved - in writing the tech described step by step how they tested the problem (and luckily it was the lesser expensive). Clearly the business has invested in the tools and computer eqpt that is often brand-specific these days. It was my previous life experience that some service centres just prefer to replace a whole module than seeing if only a part can be fixed. Sometimes with diesel trucks and European cars one believes they're trapped doing repairs at a dealership, but in the HRM you are not trapped, go to NS Diesel. Coincidentally I was looking for a place to repair a wear-and-tear issue on my spouse's German car, and what came up was NS Diesel of all places as a place for specific expertise! And awesome experience it was too. They said they work on all brands, not just German. Highly recommended.

Jon Aikens May 5, 2022

Steve and the boys at NS diesel always take great care of our cars. Professional service and great pricing. They offer a wide range of services including alignments which is not always easy to find at local shops. I trust their expertise and experience as they are constantly busy with a full parking lot of clients getting work done on their vehicles. I work in the area and never see the shop slow. I appreciate how friendly the staff are and how they go the extra mile to make sure we’re satisfied with the service. Highly recommend NS diesel to anyone regardless of make or model. These guys know their stuff and will always make sure your car is in tip top shape.

Patrick Thomas Oct 10, 2023

NS Diesel is the only mechanic I use for my F350 7.3L Powerstroke. They are 2 hrs away from me but getting my truck there and back is worth any headache I'd incur going elsewhere. I know this from experience. Recently my truck wouldn't start while throwing up "water in fuel" lights on the dash. I drained the water separator but still nothing. Off to NS Diesel it went. Turns out it was the IPR valve. At my request the shop always keeps my vehicle a few extra days and uses it to confirm things work okay. Not a usual request I realize but they still do it. The very next day after getting the truck back, the exact same thing happened. "Water in Fuel." I called NS Diesel and they instructed me to get it into them ASAP to look it over. It turned out the IPR valve they'd just replaced was defective. They immediately went to their parts vendor, the vendor covered not only the obvious additional labor and part, but they covered the cost of my 2 hr tow. A 1 ton truck towed from my place to NS Diesel is $500 after tax. The entire time this was occurring, NS Diesel would tell me, "we just want you to be happy." This experience was a great reminder of why they're my sole diesel mechanic.

D L Sep 9, 2023

These guys are great! They know what they’re doing! They aligned my RV and diagnosed issues that would have been big safety problems. My vehicle drove better than ever! I highly recommend them!

Lois Wells Sep 9, 2023

Great experience with this shop. Had an alignment performed on Jayco Motorhome, they were able to show with photos from tablets what exactly the problem was and repaired it within the estimate provided upon booking the appointment. They also have a courtesy vehicle for those who don’t have time to wait :). Customer service was great, friendly, and awesome coffee!
