Our Customer Reviews

I took my 42' diesel pusher motor coach to NS Diesel to have the engine radiator replaced with a newly designed radiator. They had no issues with doing this replacement. They took great care in the removal of the rad grill as the back end of the grill fitted under the rear cap of the coach. They did a great job. The interaction with the was "A ONE". They also corrected a leak in the chassis A/C unit. It was a pleasure taking my coach to NS Diesel. They will be my go to shop. Thanks guys Alex Cross

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

Steve and his team completely replaced the motor in my 6.7 power stroke with an updated long block assembly along with many other things, it’s not hard to tell these guy know what they are doing and they are professional about it too, 10,000km of driving towing and plowing 0 issues yet. Piece of mind with warranty backed service and are upfront about what needs to be done and the cost. You get what you pay for ! Thanks

Adam R 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

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 aleays been done properly and on time. Thanks again

Dale Williams Nov 11, 2021

Again guys great service thanks alot

Brian MacDonald Nov 11, 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

Only place I would bring my truck. Very professional and I trust their work. They just fix it right. The service advisors are top notch. I work away for work and they dropped my truck off at my house after it was completed.

Jamie 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

Great business here! This time of year proves difficult for us to find downtime in our business so it’s great to have found a business who values our time to get us in, Serviced and back on the road in no time!

Doug Corkum 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 Jul 7, 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.

James C Jun 6, 2021

Outstanding service from start to finish. Having a fleet of 25+ vehicles to manage, I switched over to NS Diesel 2 years ago as they were able to offer a full service & repair package that most other places couldn't. NS Diesel has consistently met and exceeded expectations of keeping our fleet running strong while at the same time keeping our cost down by performing routine service to catch issues before they become big problems. From friendly office staff, to highly trained techs in both gas & diesel vehicles, NS Diesel has built a team and business that is here to make sure there customers are fully taken care of regardless of the budget. I highly recommend NS Diesel to anyone looking for service and repair work on there vehicle.

David Belbin May 5, 2021

Thanks to Mike and the crew for the repairs to my 2017 Thor Chateau Ford motorhome. I took it to a local Ford dealership that couldn't repair it properly and was recommended by another Dealer to N.S. Diesel and Automotive. Thanks again!

Jeffrey Johnston May 5, 2021

I was referred to NS Diesel by my regular diesel shop and I'm very happy I was! They did a great job on my truck and we're quick to let me know everything so there was no surprises . They also have a cool little app they use to track how your repairs are going (didn't really get to use it much as my truck was only in for a couple days) I was also surprised when the total price of the job was under the original quote! (Only by like 50$ but they could have easily just kept that and said nothing.) They are definitely some good honest people and I will be bringing more of my trucks there when needed! If you're looking for a new shop to go to I would definitely recommend these guys!

Logan Doucet May 5, 2021

Great group of guys! Best place to bring any modified diesel. Just went through there financing super easy and there super helpful & great to work with.

Kyle Forrest May 5, 2021

One thing is for sure, Steve knows diesel engines. From the first time I went to this shop he took the time to talk with me and fill me in on many things I did not realize. We made a plan for my truck and the work went off with no issue and came in exactly on budget.

shore thing excavating landscaping May 5, 2021

Great bunch of ppl easy to work with and more then reasonable appreciate the help you guys are awsome 💪

Tyler Hatch May 5, 2021

Honest, and trustworthy auto mechanics, and above all know how to serve their customers. Can even help you save when it comes to ordering a high end truck hitch from the states and avoid residential duties and fees! You’ll be taken care of to say the least.

Eric Purcell Apr 4, 2021

Great professionalism from these guys. Got my truck out of limp mode and back on the road in no time!

Carson Apr 4, 2021

Amazing Service! Highly recommended.

Ben Chaisson Mar 3, 2021

Steve and the crew are awesome to deal with! My waterpump went on Friday afternoon, they fit me into their schedule right away, did the repairs and I was back on the road within a couple hours! Excellent service!!

Ashley Swinamer Mar 3, 2021

Was looking for a honest shop to make my 6.0 right again while some shops wouldn't even look at it one shop even told me it was junk these guys took it in without hesitation. They rebuilt the motor in a very reasonable time and at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend this shop Steve and his crew are very knowledgeable and easy to deal with!

Nick Ordinelli Mar 3, 2021

I reached out to NS Diesel looking for a part for my 6.0l ford, I ordered it on Thursday and it was delivered Friday afternoon!!! Amazing customer service time and time again!!

Lyndsey Green Feb 2, 2021

Reached out to NS Diesel for a part for my 6.0l ford. I ordered it on Thursday and it was delivered Friday afternoon!!! Excellent service time and time again!!!

Lyndsey Green Feb 2, 2021

Coming from someone in the same industry, hands down best customer service and most knowledgeable team I've dealt with.

Chad Atkinson Feb 2, 2021

As a contractor I work out of my truck. The crew at NS diesel make sure my truck gets back on the road ASAP. On more than one occasion my invoice has been substantially less than originally quoted. It’s nice to take my truck(s) to a shop and know I’m being treated fairly.

Kirk Scott Jan 1, 2021

Very professional shop great new system with the emailing your repairs issues think it’s the first time I left the garage feeling like I didn’t get ripped off great place for service work

Brian Mattatall Nov 11, 2020

Update: It gets even better! After finding a small fuel leak in this new to me vehicle the shop brought the truck back in..... fixed it..... found a concern with the alternator I didn’t even mention to them and they rectified it at a minimal cost...... making sure my interim transportation needs were taken care of at the same time.This business is a one of! Go get service here. If you’re not MORE than satisfied I’ll eat my shirt! My Ford F450 1995 dump truck was just diagnosed, tuned and repaired here. Read every review on this site.......I did. Then bring your truck here. They under promise and over deliver. There’s really nothing else to say. They are simply the best..... and it shows by what they do..... you’ll see.

Tanya cook Nov 11, 2020

Great crew and they got to work done fast and not too expensive. Great job. Highly recommend them

Brian Macdonald Oct 10, 2020

N.S Diesel & Automotive is undeniably the best shop around! Installed my new 6.0L diesel long block and gave the best advice and service every step of the way. Most shops are scared of working on a 6.0L diesel, and these guys will in a heartbeat. Their knowledge and expertise are well beyond expectations. Locally owned and operated Highly recommend!

Jude Clish Oct 10, 2020

Hands down the best service I have ever had when taking a car in for work and have sent other folks in who had the same experience. Want a small novel on what is wrong with your car? They will provide a pdf document that goes into all the work you could do to the vehicle and this is just something they do as part of their inspection for the car. Friendly staff, good work, good price and quick to get to the shop with their location in Burnside.

Findlay Hilchie Oct 10, 2020

A really great group of people. Knowledgeable and always helpful. I would not bring my truck anywhere else.
