More About Us

Our Customer Reviews

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.

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!

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.

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

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

Alexander Cross 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

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

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

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 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.

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.
