Our Customer Reviews

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

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 was 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

very thorough job excellent customer service

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

Fast, efficient, and economical. Level of service A1

Brad Runtz Jun 6, 2022

Prompt and professional service A+

Bob Courtney May 5, 2022

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

There’s a reason these guys have I high rating. They did my fuel system on my 2011 GMC Duramax. If they give you an estimate on a repair you should be covered unless something unexpected comes up. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

Alvin Dueck May 5, 2022

Fantastic service, great staff - I will be back and I will recommend to others. Thank you! Roseanne

Roseanne Chapman Apr 4, 2022

Friendly diesel shop. Very knowledgeable, and cool apparel!

Cody Osborne Mar 3, 2022

Had my truck there for a repair, some other unexpected underlying issues popped up and they were great at relaying what the issues were and accommodating me. They treated me extremely well and I'll definitely be taking my business back to them in the future. Brent, Mark, Steve and the techs are a fantastic team that know exactly what they're doing in the shop and when it comes to the customer service side as well!

Kenton James Feb 2, 2022

Great people to deal with. Very professional and great communication throughout repair process.

Drew Packman Feb 2, 2022

Diagnosed and repaired a very tricky problem with my truck in no time. Second to none service!

J Stewart Dec 12, 2021

Again guys great service thanks alot

Brian MacDonald Apr 4, 2021

If there were 6 stars they'd get them. The staff at NS Diesel was helpful and reachable. We ran into issues that were hard to pinpoint responsibility. NS Diesel handled everything and got my truck back in shape as fast as they could. I honestly haven't come across a company with their values in a long time.

Alain Beaudin Nov 11, 2021

Easily the best shop I have ever dealt with. They are honest, have a fair hourly rate, high quality workmanship. Will not take my truck anywhere else.

Clarke Chomyn Nov 11, 2021

Only place I’ll trust to work on my truck now. They were able to diagnose and fix my truck after it was out of commission almost all summer (brought it to another shop 3 times and the problem was never fixed). They called every step of the way to let me know what was going on. Not to mention everyone there is super friendly. 10/10

Jerusha Nov 11, 2021

Excellent service and knowledgeable crew. Had my truck complete hours before expected and was notified immediately.

David Estabrooks Sep 9, 2021

We left our Class A Cummins Diesel motorhome with them last week. Initially we felt that they might be too small to take care of our motorhome but after our conversation with Mark it was apparent that we had nothing to be worried about. Not only did they exceed our expectations but the communication was definitely present during the service. Ethan is the diesel mechanic who takes pride in his work and it shows. The shop was clean, communication on par each and every time with Mark, competitive pricing and excellent customer service! We will definitely be back and tend to move more of our fleet to them. Thank you for a great job!!

Evelyn LeBlanc Sep 9, 2021

Steve and his crew are awesome. I have been going to his shop for the last few years on a regular basis. They keep my Duramax with over 500k ticking like a clock.

Joey MacEachern Sep 9, 2021

hands down the best mechanic/automotive shop in nova scotia! nothing but good things to say about steve and his team! definately take all of your vehicles here !

mitchell salter Apr 4, 2021

These guys are truly a gem in the automotive industry. The booking system is super easy and keeps you up to date on any and all changes. The guys were great and knew exactly what they were doing. Provided pictures of the problem areas and very good prices. If you are looking around for a quality mechanic that is trustworthy, look no further.

james lindsay Jun 6, 2021

The service I received from Steve, Laura and the rest of the team was by far the best experience I’ve had with an automotive shop. They were able to fit me in on very short notice, the prices were very low compared to competitors and they completed the job in a short time frame. The team was very informative on what all needed to be repaired and they quickly gave updates on the status . I highly recommend this business to anybody looking for a new mechanic!

Brittany Gray Jun 6, 2021

Goes above and beyond. Really enjoyed my experience with N.S Diesel. Professional and very knowledgeable. Will recommend.
