Absolutely fabulous and professional team. Bought a used smart car and took it in for a complete check up. And so glad that I did, not only am I happy with all the repairs done but also was able to get tips on how to get the most of the car. Not even looking elsewhere now and would recommend to anyone looking for a professional and experienced automotive specialists.


Mark Jones

Very happy with the work these guys did. I found them on Google, looked at the reviews and decided to travel to Calgary to give them a go. Not disappointed and would recommend! Very few people can service a Smart Car properly but I feel these guys did a top job


Niamh McCoy

I am always skeptical of work done by shops from some bad experiences but these guys are amazing. Prices are fair and the quality of service is next level. When I picked my car up it was clean and they took the time to vacuum my vehicle. That’s a first for me for any vehicle I have owned. Thank you and your team so much for the unreal service.


Kevin Thygesen

BK and his technicians are amazing! I took my car to him and they diagnosed the various problems and fixed it in a very timely fashion. I trust this company and feel I was given great customer service and that tech. did great work. I will only take my cars here from now on. Thanks BK!


Rich Renegado

Amazing and outstanding honest quality service. I should have started my automotive repairs at German Car Specialist from the start. I had a check engine light for over a year and had my original mechanic did his best to troubleshoot but only to find out he only replaced parts and did not do a proper diagnostic testing only found at German Car Specialist. Ben and his team identified the root cause... (Air filter plugged) which my original mechanic oversighted and performed the repairs and cleared the check engine light. What a relief. Now my wife will be happy. Happy wife.. happy life. Great work Ben and team at German Car Specialist !

Superb. Got a PPI and another inspection done. Ben King was an absolute pleasure to work with and I am a lifer at this shop now for all of my vehicle needs, even if not specifically German. They are honest, straight forward, passionate and empathetic. A business that gives customers such time of day to help them through their problems is rare nowadays.

Incredibly happy to have gone to German Car Specialist to have them install a new radiator on my wife's Mini Cooper. From the initial call to paying and asking a few questions, Ben and his team were extremely professional and willing to take the time to explain thoroughly and ensure everything was clear and made sense. Ben called while the car was at the shop with a few additional 'could change... maybe not necessary just yet' repair options and thoroughly presented the options and varying urgencies... with no pushiness at all. Would recommend to everyone looking for a repair shop that German Car Specialist is an exceptional shop for a solid and smooth interaction that feels personal and authentic, backed by high quality workmanship.


Sean Galway

Wow. BEST. BUSINESS. EVER. Definitely use this service shop for all your German car needs. YOU ARE TREATED LIKE A HUMAN!!!!! I had quite a complex issue, they solved instantly, after spending thousands at the dealership and no problem solving.


James Lo

Good service. Not super pushy. Fixed a common audi leak into my ecu and cleaned it up real good. Thorough work and able to salvage the electronics. They responded quickly and got me back onto the road in no time.


Sarah Little

On a drive from Vancouver to Ottawa in early June my smart car broke down. I called my mechanic in Vancouver and two places in Calgary. Only German Car Specialists could get the parts in any reasonable time, (3 days to order and replace the part vs two weeks from the competitor) the total cost was slightly less than the quote and as an added bonus, by the time the tow truck dropped me and my car off at the garage the office staff found a hotel that could isolate an out of province person like myself taking a load off my mind. All things said and done this was the best breakdown in my smart car. Thank-you German Car Specialists!


Jerry Rimac

These guys are HONEST. I brought my car in and asked for what i thought I needed. They ended up doing half because i was wrong. The typical audi dealer service would have just done what asked. This shop called and told me what asked was unnecessary and let me decide. 5 stars. Plus the work was excellent and super clean. 5+


Marco Dean Remanente

I was taking my car at the Audi dealership and didn't find it personable enough since I was always dealing with different people. So a friend of mine recommended me to German Car Specialist and so happy that I tried them. My first visit was looking to buy some summer tires for my new car and Ben was the first one that assisted me. He was so professional and very knowledgeable regarding the different types of tires. I purchased some and also got them installed and boy was I happy with the product. I ended up going back to get my tires changed over from summer to winter along with oil change and inspection. Assisted me was Daniel and Beth and they were just so great to deal with. I just feel that auto shops need to be more like this that show that they are there for you and its not just the money. Melanie who shuttled me home was just the best with big smiles and very personable. When I picked up my car I was blown away that they even detailed my car inside out. I am such a happy customer and I will highly recommend this shop to all my friends and colleagues. Thank you so much for taking care of my pride and joy!

We have had nothing but great service from German Car Specialists. They are honest and patient with explaining issues with our car. They saved us hundreds of dollars when we used them for a second opinion, and we have been bringing our vehicle there ever since. Highly recommend!


JohnPaul Herbst

I live two hours away and make a special trip to get my cars worked on here. They have never let me down and always kept me informed on what repairs are needed and what the cost will be the staff are great and a pleasure to deal. Thanks again for all the great work that you all do!!


Austin Stroh

I had my BMW’s engine replaced here and have no complaints about the promise time, the quote price or the quality of work and everyone I dealt with was very friendly.


A K

I was happy to learn they have a shuttle service.The driver was very pleasant and will get you where you need to go. Enjoyed the free car wash and they even cleaned the interior as well. My service was done by the end of the day and as quoted. My service rep Jaylyne even sent me an email copy of all my information before I got there which made pick up even faster. Thank you German Car Specialist .


Michael Kingston

As a new owner of an Audi it was important for me to feel confident in my experience with new service business . The front crew at GCS was polite, professional, and we had a few laughs. It's never easy to call customers with news about repairs. Ben did a great job of filling me in on my options. No pressure - just the facts. Work was done on time and as explained. Invoice was detailed. My first experience was great.


I have a vehicle that is often difficult to find parts for. They make a genuine effort to do so... and 99% of the time are successful.


I received excellent customer service from German Car Specialist and have already recommended them. It was my first time going there and I took the car in for an alignment. The timing was good and so was the service. I enjoyed myself in the lobby; they had an espresso machine and all kinds of coffee that was free to clients. I felt that the prices were fair and everything worked out perfectly. They were friendly and polite. My favorite part was how professional they were. I'm very satisfied and, if necessary, would use their services again.


Have been taking my 2011 Mercedes E350 to German Car Specialists for about a year and have been very happy with their service. They are busy so book ahead but i would be more concerned if they were slow. Corresponded with Dennis, the owner regarding a recent purchase of a 1997 Mercedes SL600 and he was very helpful. My wife picks up a new Porsche Macan next week and I will be coming here for service and non warranty repairs.


The people at German Car Specialist are always quick and efficient when they fix my vehicle. We've had our brakes repaired and our oil changed and they do great work. They provide great customer service and have great prices. I've been taking my car there for three years and I'm very satisfied with everything they do.


These guys are TOP Notch ! Extremely high customer attention and satisfaction. High quality detailed Inspections and mechanical work. There team found items missed by Certified Porsche Dealer !


Very Highly Recommended


German Car Specialist is very nice and there are no complaints. They did oil and filter changes for a Mercedes Benz E320 automatic. Everything worked out very well. It was really easy to make an appointment with them, and we would use them again.


Everything worked out good with German Car Specialist's installation of a custom exhaust on a Volkswagen Jetta. It was the first time I went to them and they told me what the work was going to cost and stuck to that price. Their staff was friendly and professional, and they delivered my car on time.


I heard about German Car Specialist through word of mouth. I needed an oil change and service inspection. I've only used them once; and the results were good. Customer service was satisfactory and the prices were fair.


I was recommended to you by an AMA tow operator some 2 years ago. Your price for services were less than the dealer's but, notwithstanding they were more convenient, I decided to try you out. Service staff have been very friendly and transparent in the work done and what needed to be done. I always felt that recommendations made were in my interest and not just to increase your revenue.


Keep up the excellent work and those friendly smiles


Everyone at German Car Specialists are friendly and personable, plus they know what they're talking about. All work is approved before it's done and they'll let you know what's coming up. Very appreciated!

I am the second owner of a luxury car that I brought to the German Car Specialist's because they are more affordable than the car dealer. They work quickly and have a pretty friendly staff. They don't come up with extra costs or problems, or try to find any hidden expenses. They had a nice waiting area with a TV, and they offered me coffee while they worked on my car. I will be going back very soon for some regular maintenance work.

The reason we took our car to German Car Specialist was due to an emergency and they were able to fit us in quickly. They were clear in their explanations about our options.

We've been going to German Car Specialist for the past three months and it's been a really great experience. It's more like going to a friend who is a mechanic. He knows what he is doing, and works with you to figure out the best method (optional prices and whether or not he'll be able to do the job) to figure out what method will be best for you. I really like him! The prices are super reasonable and I couldn't speak more highly of him. If you're in the area and you need a mechanic, I'd definitely look him up!

Great experience

I have been coming to Two Square since I moved to Calgary in 2009 with my 2003 BMW. Beth was my advisor and she still remembers me each time I call. I trust her judgement and advice regarding repairs on my car - she is one of the main reasons I stay with Two Square. I recently brought my car in for check engine light and crazy wheel shuddering that resulted in over 8 key items identified needing attention. Beth helped me decide which were essential and never pressured me to get work done. When I picked my car up, it looked great - I realized they had not only done the usual wash but buffed out a huge scratched area, fixed up my front plate with a proper covering and generally doing way more than the usual clean on my car. Will definitely continue to use them, makes deciding to keep an old beemer easy when I have a place I trust to help me maintain it!

...This 2Square Auto team went to bat for us and our X3 when things went sideways with our independent warranty company over a major repair. We had a few more hurdles to jump over together but in the end things have worked out and our machine is back on the road behaving as it was meant to. This Team made those hurdles feel much shorter and made me feel comfortable in their abilities both in and out of the engine. Thanks for the effort spent on us and our vehicle!

Two X5s; one repaired, one inspected and piece of mind.

I own a 2004 BMW X5 that I have always enjoyed driving and was not anxious to give up yet. I lost confidence with the service I was receiving from another outfit (the vehicle wasn't sounding right when it was running and on two occassions they said they couldn't identify the problem). It seemed it might be time to move into something new and I found a 2005 BMW X5 with under 70,000 km with a clean bill of health from an out of province inspection. I brought them both to German Car Specialist. They quickly corrected the sound, they fixed the few other problems I identified and carefully explained what lays ahead with the 2005 vehicle. My 2004 X5 now sounds good as new and perfectly fine to keep driving. Service was prompt and I got a thorough explanation of everything done and discovered. After starting the day with a shuttle into the downtown, my car was washed and the tires were cleaned when it was time for a pick up. Nice to feel as though someone else cared for my vehicle.

Simple oil change - not so simple service.

My first experience with German Car Specialist was superb. I came in for a simple oil change on my BMW SAV, and left extremely impressed with the knowledge, service, and support of the staff there. Right from the moment I handed over my keys, and was informed by Dennis to shed some of them because the extra weight on the key chain would stress my ignition, I knew I was in a place where the people knew what they were doing, and beyond that, actually cared about my vehicle and it's longevity. The inspection was thorough, and the female service rep ringing me through took the time to explain in detail the findings, even showing patience as I asked her subsequent questions. Having the complimentary car wash was just the icing on the cake: especially as they brought it out gleaming AND dry, not sopping wet, in a hurry to get me out and onto the next job. Great work German Car Specialists.....I've just found my new favourite shop.

Continues to be good

I have been going to 2 Square for almost a decade now and continue to find the service to be accurate and honest. Now that my car has aged they take that into consideration to evaluate what needs to be done when. The main reason that I am leaving a 4 star rating is when I first started coming the service always ended with a free wash and interior cleaning so the bar was set high.

We have had our two cars serviced at G.C.S. for 4 years now.

G.C.S. looks after our vehicles very well. They are good to diagnose any problems and give you good advise regarding repair timelines. The service is most often completed in one day. The staff are very pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful.

Very Impressed with First Visit

My first visit has been an excellent one. Dennis and his staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I'm thrilled to have found a group that I can trust to get the job done right and at a fair price. I plan to have all my service done with them going forward and would recommend them based on my first impressions.

Service very prompt and professional

I had contacted Dennis to assist in a very unique diagnosis. Dennis was very helpful in our discussions leading up to the appointment, and he was good at returning calls or e-mails throughout the process. The diagnosis appointment went very well and Dennis and one of the technicians provided excellent service.

German Car Specialists sucessfully found an intermittent problem

The cold did a number on my VW, but the symptoms could not be reproduced the day I brought the car in. The staff warned me that I could be paying the service charge for nothing. But they did find the problem and fixed it. Service was pleasant and phone follow up was excellent.

Great service experience!

I booked an early service appointment as I needed to wait for the car and it took just an hour to be back on the road. The impressive thing to note is that my need to wait was respected and the service prioritized to get me off and running promptly. On inspection of the work, everything was proper, left clean with no spills, greasy prints or or sign or carelessness. I was happy and impressed by the entire experience from the online booking, pleasant service writer, work done to final payment. The location is a bit out of the way for me (Mackenzie Lake) but worth my time to return for the service.

Very pleasant business

I love German Car Specialist. To begin with, they're a great deal cheaper than the services that my dealership offers. They don't try to upsell me or do anything that isn't absolutely necessary. If something needs to be repaired, they give me the option to do it myself or ask me if I want them to fix it. I appreciate their integrity and how honest they are. I've been using their services for about a year for my car's routine maintenance. I saved $200 just this last visit with them. The young lady at the front desk is very polite and flexible with my schedule. Nora and her husband, Dan are both really easygoing, professional, and helpful. I'm certainly very pleased with the service and even go out of my way just to use them.

Exceptional Shop

This is a shop that cares about you and your vehicle. I have been taking my 20008 Mercedes to them for three years and the quality of service and repair is outstanding. Beth and Ben at the front desk are highly knowledgeable and the team in the back does exactly what is needed to bring your car back to full health. Plus, they have a loyalty program and they wash my car. Truly an exceptional shop.

Staff is very friendly and helpful

I feel the staff is knowledgeable. I had asked if I could get my tires rotated the staff suggested they just look and measure the wear on the tires and if it was wearing evenly there was no need to rotate as spring is coming and the summer tires will be going on! This kind of treatment builds trust for me as a customer and when a service is suggested I trust it is because the car needs it not because the garage needs more income. Thanks for the great service!

Excellent service

I have nothing but good things to say about German Car Specialist. They do quality work and take the time to do it properly. I've been there more than a few times and they always seem to get the job done within a respectable amount of time. This place will go the extra mile for you. Whether is preventative maintenance or problems found during a free inspection, they don't b.s you, don't try to up sell you, and they seem to genuinely care for your cars well-being. They go the extra step also, they wash your car for free, and not just spray it down but take the time to detail the car and wheels, which is definitely noticeable. Took my car in for an oil change and they vacuumed the interior. Had a clip hanging down on my front bumper and they installed it correctly without even mentioning they did it. It's little things like this that make this place stand out. Would HIGHLY recommend going there and won't even consider the stealership.

First rate service professionals

Work was thoroughly discussed in advance. As was the work when completed. During the service I was advised as to brake matters and possible options. Convenient customer area is provided for those of us who need to wait for our vehicle. While the shop is not as convenient to my home as is BMW Gallery. the service and cost make up for it.

We brought our vehicle in for a possible battery replacement. Turned out that not only was the battery faulty, but the alternator as well. They replaced both promptly and professionally. And when we had a subsequent (unrelated) problem, they treated us equally well. We were extremely pleased.

German Car Specialists diagnosed a troublesome seal leak on my Blizzak winter tires on my Audi A6 and noticed that the centering rings were missing, causing vibration.

What a breath of fresh air getting my Mercedes serviced at a place that does what is necessary, no fluff or add-ins

The shop is a certified Mercedes service center and do service in accordance with what is needed not what is unnecessary based on what a Mercedes manual with no flexibility on elements like tire rotations. My Mercedes is a 2008 C230 with only 15K's. I have saved thousands of dollars by GCS doing what makes sense. Thanks GCS for using your brain

Fantastic First Visit!

I was travelling to Calgary when my car started having problems. I called on the end of Friday and they were able to arrange to see my car first thing Monday morning where the dealerships could not see it for a week. I had my car fixed that same week. I have already recommended them to my friend.

Your front line staff are superbly knowledgeable and helpful.

I switched my business from a VW dealership I had dealt with for 30 years because their new location was very inconvenient. I switched to you on the recommendation of a friend who is a client of yours. My knowledge of cars is very limited so I have to rely heavily on the skills, integrity and userfriendliness of your people, and they have come through in spades.

Dennis was very professional to deal with. As well, Phil and the other staff were very pleasant. Rebuilding a vintage Mercedes engine is no small task, but they did with precision. Although it took more time than estimated, Dennis respected his original quote which was appreciated. Go with the best.


Gene Harding

I have brought my car into them 2 times for different concerns and both times the service was professional and outstanding. On one of the occasions they had to work on the rear passenger window and unfortunately scratched the window tint. There was absolutely no hesitation on their part, they brought in an outside source to replace the tint at no cost. To show they care about their clients they personally called me twice during the COVID pandemic to ensure that me and my family were fine. I would not hesitate in recommending German Car Specialists.


Jianping Zhao

If you have a German car, take it here for repair. I've been using them for five years. I used to take my car to another garage and one day they couldn't figure out the problem. German Car Specialist was able to repair it. I've been going there ever since. Also, their cost is way lower than a dealer might be. In addition to taking good care of cars, they take care of their customers. It's easy to get an appointment when my car needs to go in and they offer shuttle service wherever I need to go. I highly recommend German Car Specialist!


Rebecca Johns

I took my vehicle to German Car Specialist a few months ago, and they did a wonderful job for me! They are very professional mechanics, and they do quality repair work, but what I like even more is how considerate and customer-oriented they are. I highly recommend them to everyone! Five Stars!


Patrick Marra

German Car Specialist recently did some work for me and they were great! I really like this company! They do quality mechanical work, and they have great customer service! I highly recommend them!


tom smeljov

I was very impressed with experience overall. As a small business owner I recognize a good business when I see it: price quote was honored, all promised were kept, communication was open and friendly. Will definitely come back again. Thank you!


Lance Belisle

I have taken my car to German Car Specialist a couple of times and I am very impressed by the quality of their work. They are friendly and professional and I have no worries about them. The last time I took my car there, it was for an oil change and a quick inspection. They also gave me a car wash that was exceptionally well done. I highly recommend German Car Specialist. They really know what they are doing.


Tawinder Bhangoo

German Car Specialist recently did some work on my car for the very first time. I would highly recommend the company to whoever needs auto services. They are very trustworthy! When I took my car in for a general oil change and inspection their customer service was really good. They were friendly and really know how to deal with a customer. The mechanics checked over everything and found a couple of deficiencies. They were so honest and explained to me that they were not an emergency situation and it could wait for a few weeks or even months before making the repairs. I had them take care of the repairs at that time and now the car is working just fine. They seem to be trustworthy. The pricing seemed comparable to other repair companies in the area. Regardless of price, I definitely will go back to German Car Specialist again based on their honesty and how well they treated me at the desk.


Jeff Hearn

I have been taking my car to German Car Specialist for a number of years. I was having an issue with my car leaking something. I took it to them and they were able to repair it under the warranty. About a week later I got another leak and they were able to repair that as well under the warranty. Beyond everything, I appreciate their honesty. They could have easily charged me for those services but they went the extra mile to check on the warranty. German Car Specialist makes you feel like family except that you do on occasion have to pay for their services. I have recommended them to others and will continue to use them in the future.


Larry Child

German Car Specialist is a lot easier to deal with than the dealership, and I have been very pleased with their services. My son recommended them to me, and I am so glad he did. I have now used them on several occasions, and I have gotten great service each time! I highly recommend them!


Randy Hounjet

German Car Specialist did a very good job for me and I will definitely be using them again! They were friendly and professional, and they really knew what they were doing. I highly recommend them!

rick creswicke

I took my 05 Smart for two in due to lack of power and performance. They quickly found and solved the issue as well as gave me some options for improvements in the future.

Accidentally left my key in the ignition of 2007 911. Left the battery drained and I was unable to remove the key nor open the hood using the battery connection in the fuse compartment. Trailered the car in around noon and got it back by 4:30 with the battery charged up. Always great service and knowledge, thank you.


Blake Doenz

I have had multiple services done by German Car Specialist for my old car, including regular maintenance. They are dependable and I have never had an issue with their work. I have never had an instance of them trying to upsell me. I have recommended them to others and I will continue to use them.


Gordon Campbell

This was my first experience with German Car Specialist and I am very happy with them! I have a "smart" car, and somehow it got stuck in "Park." The Mercedes dealership said they could fix it for $1,200. So, I went to German Car Specialist for a second opinion. They looked at the car and examined it, and they said that they thought they could make a modification that would work. They were not positive, but they were willing to try, and so was I. Well, the modification worked, and has worked ever since! For about one half of what the dealership wanted. So like I said before, I am very happy!


Joe Ferraro

I had a very complicated problem, so I took my vehicle to German Car Specialist. They tried to assess what the issue was, but were not successful in determining what was causing the problem. It was very confusing, and to pin down what the problem was, they would have had to go into the engine, Which, would have cost a fair amount of money. I chose not to do that. But they tried. They were very nice people, and they were good about explaining what the overall situation was.


Riaz Mohamed

Been using there services for four years with no issues.


Sam Fedyk

I have been a customer of German Car Specialist for over seven years. When you go to them, they make you feel like a real person, not just another customer. Their personal contact is wonderful. They do professional work, but what is really impressive takes place before the work is done. When you take an issue to them, they will confirm or adjust what you think. If they think the problem is affected by something else, they will tell you. Then, they tell you what your options are. For example, you can fix this issue now, and the other issue you maybe have about 60 days or so before it needs to be addressed. That way you get a heads-up on what is going on, and you can schedule and plan accordingly. I really appreciate that kind of input!


Gary Anderson

I have used German Car Specialist for like 12 to 13 years now. They do great work for me, and their prices are about one third cheaper than the dealership. Plus, they fix things right the first time, which is not always the case with the dealerships. And, on top of that, German Car Specialist is not always pressuring me to buy things I don't need. They are a good company, and I highly recommend them!


Tim Schaefer

German Car Specialist did some work that needed done on my car. I would say that they deserve a high rating because they were forthright in the work that needed to be done and the cost came in as they quoted. They finished the car as they scheduled it and my car is running just fine! I have recommended them to others and I appreciate their attentiveness to detail and great customer service.


Daryl Henry

From the first time you call them German Car Specialist are really good to deal with. I had a Mercedes and I didn't know where to have it serviced. They were able to fit me in and get my car serviced on the first call. The speed in which they were able to schedule my car worked terrific for me. They did a good job with servicing and I have no complaints at all. I have since sold my Mercedes which is why I have not been back to them. I would recommend them to anyone for their car needs!


Steve Ward

I took my car to the German Car Specialist for an oil change for my Mercedes S 560. It was the first time I'd been there. The office staff was polite and friendly. I got an appointment that was convenient for me. It was a comfortable experience for me because it felt non-threatening and they gave me the feeling that I was being treated fairly and that I was not being upsold for any unnecessary services. I will definitely use the German Car Specialist again.


Philip Dafoe

German Car Specialist does a fantastic job! I don't just work there, but I am also a customer! I recommend them to people all the time. They provide thorough, quality service, and they strive to solve the problem. Not just throw parts at the vehicle. They try to find the root of the problem. I know that from first hand experience!


Tom Ruissen

I had an air shock manfunctioning on my Mercedes passenger front side. German Car Specialist was able to fit me in on a short notice. They repaired and replaced the air suspension on the passenger front. The car is running great since that repair. I have used German Car Specialist before and it has always been really good service!


Gerald Pearson

I decided to try something different so I took my BMW to German Car Specialist instead of the dealership. They changed my oil for me, repaired a leak, and upgraded the air conditioner. They were friendly, and explained things quite well to me. And, they did a good job. I did not give them "Five Stars" because to me, that represents perfection, which does not exist. Except when it comes to their customer service. The man behind the desk was most friendly and cheerful, and he really seemed to know his stuff! If there was a category for that, he would get Five Stars!


Richard Rainkie

I have been bringing my vehicle into German Car Specialist quite a few times. I recently had them do a routine oil change for me. It turned out perfect! The mechanics there are always very friendly and the work is done in a timely manner. In comparison to other companies, their prices seem to be very reasonable. They offer excellent customer service so I definitely would recommend them. It is always a great experience to bring your car into them.


jonathan molina

Ive had my vehicle in before with you guys, normally an ok job, Ive never really had to complain about anything. This time much different. The young lady that assisted me I know was just trying to do her job, she was attentive to my needs but had a tough time explaining costs, to the point where the owner contacted me. I had questions about the diagnosis of the the AD Blue for my vehicle at $170 and had asked what i would be receiving for this. This was a problem for the vehicle so without a real explanation i just moved forward. I was then told that the computer for Mercedes Benz that you had was not operating properly so I would have to leave the vehicle for the night. Total bill for this check on the ad blue plus an oil change was $500. On my dime, i rented a vehicle, total cost $120 The next day, i called in and was told the vehicle was ready but that the check engine light was still on and that the Ad blue countdown was gone, but you weren't sure if it would come back on because you hadn't test driven the vehicle enough. At that point i become even MORE skeptical of the work being done. Wasn't that what the $170.00 was for? Check the Ad blue, correct any issues? I picked up the vehicle that day. Later on that evening, the check engine light was on and the ad blue countdown began again. I contacted you and was essentially told "I told you so" and that there would be additional charges to check the Ad Blue system again. At that point I said no thank you to more charges. What exactly did I pay $500 for? Plus the car rental costs? $620 for an oil change?? I spoke to Country hills Mercedes this morning, and they told me what the exact issue is/was. At a cost of zero dollars, my Ad Blue systems is no re-set. I own my own business. I know its not easy to keep all customers happy. The young lady was nice, I wont't dispute that. But I have a hard time understanding what I just paid for, Essentially i was charged $500 for an oil change.


Paul Rutten

I have been going to the German Car Specialist for over 25 years - ever since they opened. I have taken several different vehicles there, and since the owner is a friend of mine, he even works on my non-German cars. They do quality auto repair work, and if there is a problem, they look out for you. They don't just leave you hanging like so many places. I have no problem whatsoever recommending their services to others, because I know if they take their vehicles there, they will be well looked after!


Genna Chiosa

I'm not one to write reviews however, this service was amazing. From the moment I called to the time of pick up. I've never felt more comfortable with a car service in my life until I brought my car to the German Specialist. AND.... they cleaned and made my car all shiny, not to mention fixed the problem as well. Thanks Ben and staff!!!


Stephen Lee

Unfortunately I have had to come and enjoy the experience here at German, car specialist. I own at 2008 Audi a3 sportback and recently my alternator was smoking so I immediately brought it here and they were quick to diagnose and order the necessary parts to get me back on the road less than a week. So I do reccomend this shop for my Audi and i find that their work is amazing for i have had no other issues pertaining to the job they have done on my vehicle. Amazing customer service and will contact you if they find anything new or not. Thank you again German car specialists!


radek swiderski

It’s hard to find a good mechanic. Especially the honest one. You guys have definitely earned my trust. Thank you.

Lee Ferrari

I recently took my 2010 Volvo V70 to my local garage to have the power steering fluid replaced as the pump was whining. Fluid replacement did not help and they advised that I needed my pump replaced - cost would be about $1000-. Checked with 3 other garages and they all said the same thing. I then checked with Beth at German Car Specialist. She noted that Volvo had a service bulletin for clogged filters in this vehicle's PS fluid reservoir and that they would try replacing the reservoir first for a cost of about $325-. Car is now working perfectly and German Car Specialist has a new customer. I couldn't be more pleased with their great, friendly service and knowledge of my vehicle.


Stefan S.

This was our first time to use German Car Specialist, but it will not be our last. Our Mercedes needed to have a complete engine rebuild, and the dealership wanted $20,000 to do the work. German Car Specialist gave us a price of $12,000. From the first, the people there were very transparent about what they would do, and what still might need to be done. They did a great job explaining all this to us. After using them this first time, we will become repeat customers due to the price and the quality of their services!


Brad Thomson

Excellent service - Honest opinion


claude perreault

The work was done professionally and in a timely fashion. Shuttle service was excellent and courteous. All the staff I came in contact with were friendly and helpful. The car was washed and when it was brought out it was noticed that a light bulb was not working. This was repaired on the spot free of charge. Best service one could expect and then some!

Felix Guobadia

I went to German Car Specialist, and they gave me a list of things they needed to do to my vehicle. But I thought they were too high priced on everything, so I only had them do one thing to my vehicle. They did that one thing very well, and I had no problems at all with that, but I did not like the prices on everything else. That is why I am giving them One Star.

After this cold snap, my older diesel Mercedes was having problems. I realized that I had two glow plugs that were shot. After replacing them it was too late after the strain I had put on the starter the numerous times trying to start it. I have used GCS before and gave a call. Monday afternoon, she ordered a new starter had my car towed and the next day it was done. What I also really appreciated was the above and beyond work by the mechanic afterwards helped me break the steering column nut that I couldn't do previously. As well as the friendliness and professionalism of the staff and owner. Thank You


skye lawrence

You guys were great! Fast, knowledgeable, transparent with your prices and kind!


Susan Crocker

We have been to the German Car Specialist a couple different times now. This last time we went in for regular maintenance and got an oil change and visual inspection. It all turned out good. They are very professional and efficient. I really love that they don't do unnecessary work. They check the safety and not just what's on the list to be done. It has been a great overall experience, and I would definitely recommend them!


Mike Len

German Car Specialist repaired my car for me. They were very knowledgeable about my car and the customer service was very good. They gave me all the information that I needed regarding the repairs and answered all my questions. The car turned out great and I would recommend them for their services. I found them by chance of driving by their facility. I am a first time user of their services and satisfied with their service.


Rinat Yarmukhametov

I am a repeat customer of German Car Specialist, having used them at least three or four times in the past. They are very knowledgeable about what needs to be done, and I particularly like the fact that they take the time to carefully explain exactly what work needs to be done. Plus, they are not pushy, and don't try to sell you parts and services that you don't really need. If the service is going to take more than a few hours, they have a shuttle service available to take you back and forth from either work or home. That is a really nice touch. Most of the time, they have the necessary parts in stock, but if they don't, they simply order the parts in, and then reschedule the work. All in all, they are very professional and competent people.

Excellent service


Eric Bristow

I have come a few times with my MB ML 350 Blutec, and repairs have been done in a quality way. German Car Specialist have directly interfaced with my Lubrico Extended Warranty, putting in the claims for me, and then charging me the difference for what was not covered. A minor item, is that they charge a labour fee to add in the Ad Blue diesel additive for the exhaust. Given that putting the additive in is a simple as fuelling your vehicle, and takes only a couple of minutes, I'd recommend that they drop charging this fee. My prior garage did this as a courtesy, only charging for the additive.


Martyn Izod

I would not trust my car to anyone other than German Car Specialist. Their knowledge of these older cars is second to none and rather than have another company groping around in the dark, I would recommend the experts. I also get my MB GLK serviced with them, outstanding service and quality of work.


Doug Day

I spotted a fluid leak under my wife's BMW while it was parked in the garage. Had it towed to German Car Specialist where a leaking rad hose was identified as the root cause. I received an estimate to replace the damaged hose as well as an estimate to replace the balance of the hoses which were showing similar signs of impending failure. I decided to have them repair everything. They don't make recommendations that aren't in the customers best interest. Great job and we are back on the road.


David Watson

I like these guys. I feel comfortable dealing with them and they are pleasant to deal with. Most of all, I trust them.


Retta Richards

I called the shop after my car would not start during the cold snap. I had it towed down there late on a Thurs fully expecting them to keep it for the entire weekend because I had no appointment. As it turns out they had it all ready for me with a new battery on Fri afternoon. After resetting everything on the car, my radio would not work. I quickly went back and they actually sat with me until we got it working again. These people are absolutely service oriented. If other shops in Calgary followed their principles, life here would be awesome ! ! !


douglas bayliss

Great detailed report Service adviser a gem Knowledge with sensible plan


Chris Feist

My service advisor provided great detail and excellent communication when I took our car in for service. You could tell they knew what they were doing and weren't overcharging for things we didn't need. Driving a German car that's out of warranty can be a scary proposition unless you have a team you can trust to ensure all maintenance is properly performed.


tony sabelli

people take the time to explain and very professional


rita sly

Trusted recommendations and exceptional service. Always going the extra mile - detailing the car after service was a welcome surprise!


chris roza

I happened upon this shop by chance as I needed a shop to do a specialized vehicle inspection on a used car I wanted to purchase. I am based in Vancouver and needed someone local to be my eyes and ears. Dennis, Beth and Ben went above and beyond to ensure all of my concerns about the car were thoroughly investigated. Upon purchasing the car, they also quoted and conducted additional work upon request and made recommendations on what needed to be done vs what could wait. Pricing was very fair. Communication was second to none. I felt at ease knowing they were looking out for my interests, especially with such a large purchase. I would recommend this shop to anyone and would gladly use them again.

Good work done in a timely fashion with a clear explanation of the problems, the proposed solutions and corresponding cost estimate on my wife's Mini Cooper S.


Hoi Thai

My vehicle had issues and like always 2 Square has always been there for me as the last minute. Beth always gets me back on the road!...thanks so much.


Marquise Beauchemin

I trust this team with my ML350, they are professional prompt, accurate with their estimates and it's fixed right the first time. Thanks everyone! 🙂 -Marquise


tim granger

Solved a problem in a timely and efficient fashion. Thanks for cleaning the car also


Arthur Beck

If you have a German built Vechicle I would recommend you give them the opportunity to show you what you can do for you.


Rob Fahey

Always have our German cars repaired here , never disappointed with results


Fred Cuvelier

My car was in for the 65K check up with oil change. All went well and completed on time. Thanks


Amanda Gushue

Great service, great work, great prices. My Mercedes is never in better hands than with these guys!


donna maxwell

What is optional and what is required should be stated up front. $4000 + in work recommended one year after having $4000+ work done to my 2010 car. Only when pressed by my husband was the distinction made between optional and necessary work. Car was returned not washed or vacuumed.


colleen jones

I was able to get an appointment quickly. I was not sure on how to address my car's service and maintenance issues. Jay-Lynn was amazing at putting forward a variety of options and walking me through each one. Thank you Jay-Lynn!


simon weekley

Very flexible and friendly.


brad shannon

Prompt courteous service. Recommend to other Porsche owners.


timo rudloff

Appreciated the very clean car after the oil change and added brake fluid flush. Far better experience than the one at the MB dealership - will return.


ken ludwick

Dennis provided me with concise repair quotes that he stuck to. He also provided me with a 3-year warranty. This was reassuring given the dealer's failure to absorb the cost of three separate misdiagnoses. Based on my first dealings with Dennis and the staff I dealt with, I would highly recommend using their services.


al bellstedt

expensive but professional


brian pynn

First time visit with my used BMW. Have never been a Bimmer owner before and have heard horror stories about the high cost of dealership service so was looking for a non-dealer option for oil change and a couple of basic services. Everybody I encountered was friendly and professional, and the spotless wash/vacuum to send the car home was a real nice touch. 5-star service, delivered on time. Only thing preventing me from 5-starring the total experience was I thought the cost came in much higher than expected and likely not much different from dealership maintenance costs. But will do some research and if I'm proven wrong will be happy to upgrade the other ratings.


Greg Mah

This is my first time getting work done on my car (oil change), the other time was for detailing. A couple I know recommended I take my Audi here for work. They mentioned they knew a couple of others who brought there vehicle here and were happy. No complaints, they do good work. They also changed the coolant on my car as well swapped out my tires to summer. They explained the work they did and very friendly staff. If you are looking for the lowest price, this probably isn't the place for you. If you are looking for quality work, then I believe this is the place to go to. I will be going back for my next oil change or if I need them to look at my Audi A3 again.


Renee Gagnon

Excellent customer service from highly competent technicians - special thanks to Blair for going above and beyond in his customer service!


randy schmitz

Had both of my vehicles repaired and serviced at this shop, promptly had all work done and for a reasonable price! Highly recommend them! Thanks Randy Schmitz


marguerite mcvicar

Always satisfied with the work done and if there is a problem with anything it is rectified at no extra charge.


fred weinheimer

This was the first time that I had our Porsche into German Car Specialist for service. Dennis and his team ensured I was kept informed as to the progress and any unforeseen difficulties they encountered. I will absolutely recommend them to others.


anne fattouche

German Car Specialist took the worry out of our car problem. After having car towed they were quick to assess the problem and do the work. Definitely took the stress and worry out of the whole process.


Mike H

This is my 3rd appointment this time just as great as the last 2. Lot's of communication even photos regarding my vehicles service and pointed out some things that I never would of noticed until it was too late and probably would of left me on the side of the road. My diesel is getting a little older but it runs great, thanks to GCS I can count on great advice and great service. They know their stuff!


tony may

Thank God for the German Car Specislist's my vehicle now operates like a Mercedes Benz is supposed to, when I utilized the dealership from whom I purchased it from it operated like a lemon


wayne schellenberg

They keep my 1989 VW Camper Van running


Heather McNair

Love these guys. Realistic and practical advice, never once have I felt like I was being taken advantage of. These guys stand behind their work. Everything I’ve had done has been fixed right the first time with a few minor things where the problem persisted I was not charged more to correct the problem.


Rob Maclellan

As always, Beth and the gang go out of their way to make sure you are a happy satisfied customer.


Desmond Stevens-Guille

Dennis and his team are pretty detailed and have genuine concern and care for your car. They are not the lowest cost shop in town, but GCS is not as crazy priced as a dealership. Thus, about in the middle for $$$. But you get what you pay for right? I will continue to bring my car to their care, as they know their cars and quality.


pamela gervais

Very happy with their work


Donna Erlandson

Very informative and great to deal with as a first time customer. I would definitely recommend German Car Specialists! Thanks you for looking after us and my 2012 C350 Mercedes Benz.


jeff matthews

Guy and his team are extremely approachable and seem to have endless time to go through every aspect of what is being done. BMW took care of my car for the first 8 years these will take care of it for the rest of its long life.


bob macarthur

My first time there and will definitely go back.


andy czechowskyj

I wish to take this opportunity to thank German car specialists for dealing with a very stressful situation in a very professional manner. I was impressed with the final outcome and would recommend German car specialist to my friends.


Mike pedde

Provided updates all through the repair, gave options on what is a must and what can continue to run but will be required in the near future. No surprise invoicing


Cliff Alexander

great experience for what i needed and they washed my vehicle as well... Thank you


nellie gotch

Have been going for over a decade and will keep bringing my vehicles here. The service team is very knowledgeable and do great work.


scott mclean

Staff was friendly and informative


jocen consunto

i can think of anything shuttling customer really work well thank you


Rob Izsak

My experience with the German Car Specialists was exceptional. They were able to fit me in with short notice. The cords were showing on my Summer tires which would have been very unsafe to continue with them. They took great care of me and detailed my car as well. Cheers to Denis and his crew!


Ken Faulkner

Beth and the entire teams at GCS are fantastic - always willing to help, go the extra mile and give great advice! the only place I take my precious M cars!


David Willis

We are long time customers of German Car with two different cars being serviced there. They are easy to deal with, their service advisors are knowledgeable and personable. The mechanical work is carried out well.


gary rasmussen

Appt. was on time,job well done including wash and vacuum which was unexpected.Nice to have work done and not pressured to have extra work done which may or may not be necessary, will come back for sure!


Friesz Shirlee

Very happy with the work performed by the whole crew. Always kept us informed, and stayed in contact with us. Were willing to work with us every step of the way.


tim mcelroy

These guys and gals are ; knowledgeable, prompt and efficient. Thanks for the trouble -shooting scan and assessment. The price was most reasonable. Great service, nice waiting area and friendly service.


Deric Orton

I have been into the German car specialist with two vehicles over the years. My latest experience has left a bad taste in my mouth. My engine light was on and they ran the vehicle through a series of scans and tests. When I got a call about 4 o’clock to say that my vehicle is ready to be picked up I asked if everything was done the response was yes it was, here is the total and when will you be in to pick it up. When I arrived the service advisor proceeded to show me series of diagrams and photographs of a suspected problem for the engine light which would cost another $600 and require another day is booking. She went on to say that after this repair the problem may not be solved but it would be the next step in making that ultimate repair. The service advisors previous declaration that the repair was finished and the car was ready to be picked up was not accurate. This felt disingenuous and her explanation that the repair might not still be complete left me with no confidence. I’m taking my vehicle back to the dealer for a second opinion.


Bill wyrostok

The expertise of the technician and quality of the report is very impressive! I definitely recommend German Car Specilist for repair and inspection of German vehicles.


nancy bouchard

Always great service, efficient and very detailed information is provided about what needs to be repaired and why.


dana zehir

Good value for the fee charged especially compared to Mercedes Benz Calgary.


korey cuvelier

Had a lot of issues come up with our vehicle 5 days before having to go on a road trip. They were able to squeeze us in, assess the issues and give us a solution promptly. They talked us through all the issues and solutions, making it as easy as possible for us. They provided amazing service and finished everything in time for us to still be able to go on our trip. Would highly recommend German Car specialist to everyone needing anything done to their vehicle.


kirsten wallace

Thanks so much to the team at German Car Specialist- in under 24h they got my car in and fixed and back to me which was just absolutely fabulous! Excellent customer service and very knowledgeable. Thank you!


john stiel

Dennis and crew did a great job explaining what needed to be done and then they did a great job of executing the plan. Much appreciated. Will continue to use them for service and repair.


vince reda

Was able to call, book an appt, have tires changed, all in in the same day and within a couple of hours.


Julie Ramsay

The representatives from the German Car Specialist were very professional and provided information when requested. They were very specific about the required maintenance work on our Smart car. They provided the old parts for inspection and gave us some very useful information about how our wiper fluid reservoir functioned for filling.


bill durtler

Way better value than at the dealership


lisa partlo

No issues. Work was done in a timely fashion. Detailed assessment of work to be done in the future was helpful.


rob moser

German Car Specialists went out of their way to get us back on the road when we needed our car. Excellent service. Five Stars


greg mclean

When I ask questions about the service my vehicle needs, staff patiently walk me through the nature of the work -- why it may be necessary, what may have caused the problem, and options for moving forward. Much appreciated.


jens rumsfeld

Very responsive, job well done.


carolynn Van de Vyvere

We had an unusual string of problems with our R350. Dennis and his team worked hard to sort it out and keep us informed throughout the process.


Dean Hession

This was my first time using German Car Specialist. I brought my car in for some repairs. At first, they kept telling me that it would be a whole bunch of problems or it may be this problem or that but it turned out that I had a fairly small problem that was a pretty easy fix. The car is running great now and I am happy that it didn't turn out to be a major fix! They did repair my car in the time frame stated and overall I was pretty pleased with the outcome!


guy fortier

When they found what was wrong, they searched widely to obtain parts. Had the total estimate prepared and estimated time of completion. With that I delivered my second ,older BMW for an assessment of work that may be needed.


stan wright

Dennis and his competent staff always do their best to make you happy with their service. They update you with the other issues that may affect performance or safety and the options that are available to you. My car is always spotless when I pick it up which matters to me. I have been a satisfied customer for 10 years and will continue to be.


Mike Schlegel

Personal service, quality and affordable. You drive a high end car you need to be prepared to pay a fair price for the service. This shops makes sure you know what you need to know about your car. Tell you what can wait and what can not. I would recommend to anyone.


nick cosentino

They do a great job of really looking into the root cause of an issue to solve the problem and not just band aid the symptoms. Thanks


Blake Somerset

Repaired and got running our 1992 Mercedes 500SL when no one else could. Car runs like a top! Very pleased with their very detailed out of province inspection and follow up repairs. Provided detailed updates on car repairs and costs along the way. Would definitely recommend!


michael gregor

So my experience was good and bad, they had trouble diagnosing my German car to determine what was wrong. Eventually taking four days to figure out there was an O2 sensor that was causing problems. Cost me over $800 to replace a simple O2 sensor after all the testing they recommended. I am upset that they seem to have been a regular stereotypical mechanic shop in this instance. I have been too them before and they were quite good but every time I bring my car in I lose it for about a week. The service staff are otherwise great Guy Swain was helpful and courteous, was fair with the bill, only made me pay for what I had agreed too. And tried to remain in contact with me regarding what was happening. I am currently on the fence with them. Not sure if I will keep going back or will try an new place.


tej sandhu

I needed the driver's side mirror fixed on my ML350. I originally went to the Mercedes dealership, and they quoted me $510 for parts and labor, which I thought was absurd. German car specialists quoted me $120 for the part, and they didn't even charge me labor, even though it took them about 15 minutes to fix. I dealt with Dennis, who was very professional, friendly, and honest. I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends!


tim demo

Dennis was very personable and experienced regarding my vehicle model. Very happy with the service provided. Dennis was very good to work with regarding any issues. Recommend.


David Derrick

Always great service and a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely


Jay Heritage

I took the VW Touareg here because I wanted a second opinion on a very pricey repair quote I had received from the dealer. Dennis and the team at German Car Specialist confirmed the original diagnosing, but explained the parts that failed inside the intake manifold could actually be replaced individually - rather than the entire intake being replaced as I was previously told. This was a significant savings from the dealer quote and a no-brainer for me to repair this way. Their estimate was to-the-penny, and their warranty was even better than the dealer offered. I will definitely be using them from this point on. Thank you German Car Specialist!


steve cohen

went out of their way to source used parts


angus cooke

Great experience, would definitely use again.


Jo bradbury

The people there are great. Very nice and Jake is an added bonus. It took a week to get the work done, which is a bit longer than we would have liked.


karen grieb

Since bringing my car for service here, I've had no repercussions. They are informative and provide no pressure sales.


Jim Wadia

Car was ready when they said it would be and at the same price as the estimate. Have been going here for 14 years with good reason.


Larry Morandi

Brought the vehicle in for an oil change and an outstanding repair item. They managed to get the vehicle in and out of the shop, and washed earlier than I had anticipated. Well done again!


steven wong

Very professional, knowledgeable, honest and friendly. I bought new tires from PMC tire and forgot to buy the TPMS. Talked to the service advisor and he ordered 4 separate TPMS sensors at $200 each. After inspection, turns out that my ML350 did not need those sensors as it was built in the car itself. They modified the quote accordingly. They informed me exactly what was done and for that reason, they earned my trust (I am very skeptic of everybody if you are wondering). Will recommend my friends/ family to go to them (if they drive those expensive German cars 🙂


Todd Kathol

Knowledgeable staff


Jianxing Jia

The gentleman is very nice and professional.Your service is good. I feel both of them are better than before.


Chantal Point du Jour

Excellent shop and excellent staff. I would definitely recommend this shop to anyone


Dan Drader

The guys not only diagnosed the issue with my engine they allowed me to source my own parts via eBay. I saved over $2400 not buying my parts directly from Volvo. They have been my go to for a couple years now and would recommend them over a dealership.


guy thornton

Parts a little high but still happy.


samule musumati

Satisfied with the work on my car. Thank you GCS


ken cameron

I called and made and appointment to fix a few issues with my 09 smart car. The service advisor was prompt and efficient and had my car book in couple of days later at 0730hrs. The service advisor called me a few hours later to let me know the found other damage that needed to be fixed and the cost. I gave the go ahead on the needed repairs and deferred the not safety repairs. The next day the car was ready and when I picked it up the bill was less than the estimate and they even washed the car inside and out. I will be back when I need service and I will not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who enjoys good service at reasonable prices.


neil taylor

Brought my Westphalia in with a starting problem and they tested for grounding issues. Cleaned up various grounds and said it was good to go. Quite expensive. Got home to Edmonton and failed to start again. Turned out to be a bad battery, replaced and fine since.


prem manohar

My service advisor Alex is friendly and knowledgeable. At times he will find overlap if any in a specific task common to two different problems which he then leverages to reduce time and labour to my benefit. He is very helpful in scheduling work by priorities on different days to suit or convenience.


Brian Kelly

Took a long time to get parts...but satisfied with the end result...still waiting for the key that was supposed to be ordered


Timothy O'Hara

Overall better than the audi dealer. The cost of maintaining an Audi long term is something this manufacturer did not think of in their product. German auto. does a good job addressing this issue.


Doug Helmcken

Excellent service and workmanship at a fair price and on time.


Anne Ostlund

Very pleased with the service we have received. Knowledgeable and reasonable prices. Would highly recommend them.


John Hersey

Great work as always


ray bryant

Thanks Dennis for getting back to me about my 98 Porsche. After being away on holidays for three weeks, I was most impressed by your quick phone call to an earlier call by myself. This was my first visit . All of the staff were very helpful. It was apparent this business operated like a well oiled machine. I came with a problem and left with that problem solved. If the need arises that I have another problem, I would not hesitate to make another appointment at The German Car Specialist.


Graham Boag

Even cleaned and detailed the car as well!


bob matwichuk

I came in with a major problem wrt my engine caused by another technician at another company and the work done was amazing. With engine parts found all over including the oil pan - all was corrected and the car runs great again. The detailed invoice and pictures and parts told a clear story of technician fault. Thank you so much for the detailed work and documentation.


simeon kinsey

Took my '83 944 in when i had two other shops shy away. Completed the work the next day. Very easy to deal with.


s a

They did only what was necessary, saved me a bunch of expense, and returned the car cleaned inside and out. I'll be back.


Chris Best

Always pleasant, honest and easy to deal with.


Colleen Henderson

Good, open communication. Trustworthy. Prompt. These guys have taken great care of my car since 2012. Very happy.


Frank Spadafora

Great service by Dennis & Alex, will recommend this shop.


peter walton

Professional, good customer service, informative, washing the car after servicing was an unexpected bonus. I have taken my vehicle to many different German or import car repair shops, this was by far the best place. Price-wise every where is comparable but the service here is on a much higher level. Also the shuttle is a great idea.


morten christensen

Had my BMW serviced two times now super service both times


grant ukrainetz

Rear tire problem was due to inadequate installation - dealer agreed to fix at no cost.


Doug Tindall

A little confusion between information contained in email traffic related to this visit versus what appeared on the work order, but all worked out in the end.


alex latif

Appreciated meeting Manny the specialist who worked on my ML350. He took photos of all the work required and showed me the photos. Took me through the work he did. Alex took the time to explain the work. Spent $6700. The vehicle runs like new. Thanks guys. Alex Latif


garth lakey

The service provided was professional and prompt. An inspection was performed during service and all issues were well documented with supporting photographs and recommendatios were provided.


Ron Wolfe

Again nothing but the best service Thanks


Ben G

Workmanship, services, scheduling, diagnosis are excellent. Cost of services is still a bit high and just slightly lower from dealers charges. Would be better if cost of labour come down a bit more.


Ian Hargrave

Most people rate going to the car service right up there with going to an Alberta dentist. German Car Specialists is are a refreshing difference, like going to get a haircut and knowing you won't get scalped.


darcy Wetter

Great service as always been going to German car specialists for years and have great confidence in them!!


david pick

They addressed my car issues and sourced a wheel repair for a good price. Other than a glitch with my reservation I was happy with the service.


brian saltman

still waiting for a repair quote, one week and counting


A Cameron

They are always courteous, quick and well priced. Highly recommend!!


Jan Junek

The car was received from shop on May 26, 2017. I have driven it on May 27, there is problem with idle adjustment done in shop; car stalls and seems to be not getting enough gas . Not possible to drive as repaired.


Elizabeth Dobby

I have been a customer of German Auto Specialists for the past 7 years. My most recent visit involved general maintenance and, as always, the work was completed on time and at the quoted cost. Their staff even go over any potential future trouble spots and make recommendations. Before you turn over the keys to your investment, take a look at this business, they are honest, knowledgeable professionals. And thanks, Alex, for excellent customer service!


Ling Ling Chiang

This is my first time using German Car Specialist to service my car. I am very happy with their honesty and care for the client. Alex make an effort to research the alternative solutions to fix my Audi Instrument Cluster. He mange to find a company in the East Coast of Canada that license to repair the instrument. It saves me half of the price to replace a new as I recommended by other two dealership. The repair also comes with 1 year warranty that give me some assurance. It has been a month, and has been working well. The only suggestion I have is to add pick up shuttle service. It has shuttle service to drop off client before 8.30am. It will be nice to have the shuttle to pick up from downtown perhaps after office hour like 4.00pm. For sure I will continue to use the service. I have also recommended to friends. Thank you for the pleasant experience. Keep it up!!


dustin linke

Guy was very helpful!


Erin Delorme

Alex and his team were very professional and walked me through the work that needed to be completed on my car. From the initial phone call to picking up my vehicle the service was outstanding. I have already recommended your company to a friend of mine. Well done Alex!!! Regards, Erin


Dustin Augustine

Fair price and friendly staff. A little disorganized when it comes to inspections, would assume that the check sheet would be provided to the customer without them having to come back to the shop to request it, especially when items like fault codes found and burned out marker lights are mentioned in the check sheet but not the invoice provided. Were a few errors in my report such as the wrong lens being cracked, not a big concern for myself, but as the inspection was for a sale to a client, accuracy is important as it puts into question the validity/accuracy of the entire inspection.


John Cooper

See above ******


Douglas Porter

2 thumbs up


Christine Ross

I had my car into the German Car Specialists to repair a high pressure oil leak that gave them a bit of an issue. I picked up my car from the shop and proceeded to drive it home only for the car to lose all gas pressure 10 minutes later. I called and they were great. First thing they asked was if I was ok and safe. If I could drive it back please do so but if needed they would send me a tow truck. I was able to drive the car back to German Car Specialists. A few days later the car was ready to be picked up. They figured the problem was a module that they replaced with a spare used part they had on hand and would order a new one for me. Terry the mechanic test drove the car to ensure it was working properly. Unfortunately the same thing happened again. As it turns out the part they replaced for the high pressure oil leak had one faulty washer out of the many the size of your pinky fingernail. The car was fixed and it runs perfectly now. Now after telling this story I think it is equally important to tell you that this is one of those things that just happens. This is not something anyone could have foreseen or controlled. Alex and the rest of the front desk crew were absolutely amazing. Yes my car was in the shop for much longer that any of us could have anticipated but there are ways to deal with this and ways not to. I know Terry the mechanics was working very hard to find the problem and to get my car back to me, I know everyone felt horrible that this kept happening but you know the old saying "thing happen" well it is how you deal with the problem that makes it a positive or negative experience. Yes it was an inconvenience; no I was not happy about the situation and yes it was frustrating but being angry or upset at the staff of German Car Specialists was not going to get me anywhere. My positive attitude provided us both with a positive experience. The shop has been absolutely amazing to me and has even snuck me in to have simple a repair completed. I only wish more people would realize that we are all only human and can make mistakes. We wish things like this wouldn’t happen to us but they do and it is the way we handle them that brings out the person we truly are. Thanks for everything German Car Specialists. I will continue to use this shop for my little SMART car.


Karen Benzies

Positive experience. GCS was respectful of my time.


Barry Timmerman

From front desk to mechanics bench ...top notch service.


Sam Ryan

I recently brought my VW TDI in for a boost gauge install, Stage 1 Malone tune, Dynamic EGR and Dynamic idle all of which have brought me incredible satisfaction, i live in Red Deer and heard good things about Malone tunes which lead me to GCS, working with Alex was awesome he's very knowledgeable and very willing to help. Most impressive of all was the quote was dead on these guys know it can be stressful getting your euro car worked on and do anything and everything possoble to make it a smooth process from shuttling you to where you need to go while your car is worked on to their complimentary car wash, 5 stars all day for these studs thank you for the awesome experience guys


Chris Ogston

They were quick and honest. Doing the necessary servicing (oil flush and summer tire change), but pointing out potential items to keep an eye on in the future.


Brent Hrywkiw

I have been a customer at GCS for a few years now and always get the same great service. Would recommend to anyone that drives an Audi/BMW/Mercedes


Gordon Mckercher

Just took my 2002 Audi TT in for a water pump, timing belt and valve cover gaskets. Guy was great, gave me a list of what was wrong, what could wait and what was recommended. Their price was what was quoted with assurances that if it was going to be more that it wouldn't be a surprise, they would let me know. I did get a bit impatient, but it was Easter weekend and I was trying to find out if it would be done on the Thursday. It wasn't, but they did bust their humps to get it back to me Easter Monday so that I wouldnt be stuck for an extra day after the weekend. Overall great service and would recommend.


Al Ogston

Booked my 911 turbo for service and was done on time and was charged what I was quoted. I recommended this company to anyone.


Scott Digel

I find the whole service experience to be excellent, from check-in to pick-up. I also feel that they only recommend the work that needs to be done. None of that extra stuff that you get at some other places. Fair prices for solid work and a great customer experience.


Inam Ul haq

It was my first experience outside dealership for my BMW. I am very happy that i went to these guys... cost effective, fast and excellent service- Servive representative named GUY was great to deal with..


John Smith

What a great crew! They take you very seriously and work with you for the best solution to you issues. Anything I've had fixed with them so far has stayed fix and they have done so in a reasonable time frame. They really are german car specialists... But be aware that the bill can add up pretty fast. When they diagnose your car they do so very thoroughly and will present to you every potential issue and lean on you a bit to have it fixed. Any owner with an upscale vehicle and the income to support it will see all their needs met and their car maticulously maintained.


Jack Thacker

Had a problem that my GL320 would not start. Found the electrical problem and repaired it.


Ikem Mbeledogu

A previous mechanic had diagnosed my air conditioner issue as an evaporator leak and quoted $2500 for a replacement. However I brought my vehicle in only to have my repair completed for a fraction of the cost which did not involve the big repair previously recommended. Thanks for the honesty and I will definitely be back.


Sam Wing

Great service but you pay for what you get.


Doug Mills

great shop and service.


Thomas Braacx

I have used German Car Specialist for many, many years. 1 Audi, 4 Volkswagens and 3 BMW's. Always service with a smile. Keep up the good work boys!


Laszlo Lesziak

I had a hard time with my car. These guys helped me out! Strongly recommended! Sit back and relax! These guys fix your car. Excellent costumer service! Thanks again guys! Till next time.


Nathan Ashby

I was looking for a decent vw tdi mechanic shop and was convinced after my phone call to book with Alex at the front desk to give them a try. I was not disappointed!. From the photos e mailed to me of the mechanics findings , right down to the car being cleaner than it was dropped of as upon pick up. Great staff , Great service . Ill be back :o)


Julia H

I have been bringing my cars here for over 7 years now and have never been disappointed. Always a pleasure to deal with the service advisors and the owner. Thanks Everyone!


Ian Tubb

I have to say that my experience with German Car Specialist was pretty much what you would expect from going to a mechanic. My car was having problems and so I took it into these guys and they took good care of it. They got everything back up and running to 100% and they were able to do all of the work in a couple of hours which was pretty convenient. Price was pretty good and I have no complaints, work has held up ever since.


Ibrahim M

My car was fixed back in August, the problem reoccurred recently and when I brought it back I was concerned that I had to pay for the diagnosis and the cost of the repair but Denis the owner told me that they would cover all the cost and that was appreciated.


lew will

I was very satisfied with German Car Specialist and of course I would recommend them. I only used them once and it was for an oil change. They were professional and I had no problems with anything. Everything was fine.


Jeff Jones

Fast efficient and easy to deal with.


Barbara Zupic

I have to say that the people over at German Car Specialist are really very thorough. I really like they were able to confidently answer all of my questions. I have not been here in a while which is a testament to their work, but when I go they are very easy to work with. They make sure that you have a very good experience when dealing with them and I really like that.


Jason Zhang

The people over at German Car Specialist really know what they are doing! I took my BMW over to them after going to a couple different shops. The other shops were unable to figure out what was wrong with my car but these guys were able to diagnose the problem in a matter of minutes! Once they figured out the problem they gave me a price estimate and I gave them the green light. They had my car for a couple days but once they gave it back it ran like new! I would definitely recommend these guys to anyone who drives a BMW.


Joanne March

I find the experience is always positive and the price is always competitive.


Joe Trotta

The entire team at German Car has always been excellent from the front office people to the shop mechanics. I had my last service in October 2016, a strange thing occurred mid December. The bottom front guard has dropped down. I guess the plastic grommets (plastic screws) that hold this in place must be worn out and came out. I have now used tie wraps to hold it in place and will have new grommets installed on the next service. Thank you, Joe


Luther Itael

Alex was very efficient in booking and explained all the options without being pushy...


Jasbir Toor

Jonathan D

Dennis is straight forward, up front and honest even when giving bad news to a customer.


Peter Held

friendly, efficient service, timely performed repairs, very satisfied overall!


Ryan Ford

It is not often you find an automotive repair shop that goes above and beyond. This is that place. You can tell they truly take pride in the work and service they provide. Highly recommend.


Wes Dueck

Car always done when promised..such a treat to pick up your car after serviced to find it detailed... a nice and classy touch


David Elm

I do the simple maintenance work on our two Volvos but when an auto computer or electrical is involved I take the auto to German Car Specialist. Never any surprises or problems after the service.


Brett Schonekess

Honest, professional, and great people. Vehicle always comes out better than it goes in!


Greg Radway

I think German Car Specialist is totally incompetent. I brought my car--an Audi A6--to them for some brakes, and they told me it would be ready the next day. I went the next day and they didn't do anything. Instead, they brought out a different car--an Audi A4 that's a different color--and insisted that it was my car. They wouldn't say what work they actually did on my car, and I don't know what happened. It's a very expensive vehicle. They apologized for the error, and then I asked to have my car by noon the next day. They said definitely, so I came in and it wasn't done--and they hadn't even started on it. I feel there is mismanagement across the board at all levels. I won't go back.


Charity G

The people at German Car Specialist are always quick and efficient when they fix my vehicle. We've had our brakes repaired and our oil changed and they do great work. They provide great customer service and have great prices. I've been taking my car there for three years and I'm very satisfied with everything they do.


Vivek Rihki

German Car Specialist is very nice and there are no complaints. They did oil and filter changes for a Mercedes Benz E320 automatic. Everything worked out very well. It was really easy to make an appointment with them, and we would use them again.


Sanjay Naidu

I drop my car for service and diagnosis, only good at making bills , didn't do anything to my car , can't solve the problem I still have same problem. I'm not happy with the service so I am not recommend anyone to take their car to this place .


Niki N

Over charged me for a problem not fixed. They damaged my car during service which they claim is not their problem.They lie through their teeth. Take your car to the experts if it needs anything more than an oil change. Save your money. Don`t waste your time and money with these guys.


Jeremy Jacques

Everything worked out good with German Car Specialist's installation of a custom exhaust on a Volkswagen Jetta. It was the first time I went to them and they told me what the work was going to cost and stuck to that price. Their staff was friendly and professional, and they delivered my car on time.


Susan Elliott

I heard about German Car Specialist through word of mouth. I needed an oil change and service inspection. I've only used them once; and the results were good. Customer service was satisfactory and the prices were fair.


Bob Thornton

friendly helpful staff.


Bill Rhind

It's nice knowing I have a specialist working on my 10 year old Passat. The work is not cheap. The problem I have is that I always have to sit around for two hours while the work is done. I'm a senior and this is a hardship.


Peter Chechotko

I received excellent customer service from German Car Specialist and have already recommended them. It was my first time going there and I took the car in for an alignment. The timing was good and so was the service. I enjoyed myself in the lobby; they had an espresso machine and all kinds of coffee that was free to customers. I felt that the prices were fair and everything worked out perfectly. They were friendly and polite. My favorite part was how professional they were. I'm very satisfied and, if necessary, would use their services again.


Raymond Nanan

I've only been to German Car Specialist once, but I think they are knowledgeable, courteous, prompt, and provide good feedback. I feel like their pricing is a bit high, though.


Pete Reimer

Took my Z3 in for an inspection required to transfer from another province. At the same time, I requested them to investigate why my soft top wasn't opening and closing. I received a call during the day saying it would take additional time to investigate the soft top problem totaling. The total cost of this was over $300, and they came to the same conclusion as I did after I Googled the problem. Then to find out that they charged $60 to change a tail-light bulb as part of the inspection process. And now I have waited over 2 months for them to get the part in to fix the soft top issue. Called them once and the person I spoke to indicated she would advise the person responsible for my account - no one ever got back to me.


Vern Jones

I brought the mini in to have engine service light investigated and a seasonal service done. During the servicing the clutch pressure plate suffered catastrophic failure. It fractured in three places. Every other mechanic I talked (including BMW) to suggest failure due to rapid launch. GCS service mechanic denies his liability. I had to eat the $4384.97 . Am I a happy customer?


Shelley Sackney

Very impressed with the service on my GLK350. We had a faulty battery which kept going dead and requiring a boost. In fact, it was tested as Ok at the Mercedes dealership when it turned out to the battery all along. Will definitely keep going to GCS.


aaron marshall

i felt confident that they knew what they were doing. They were very careful about letting me know price and scope change for things that came up. It was my decision, I wasn't pushed. I highly recommend them.


Al MacGregor

happy,happy


Kerri Johansen

Everyone at German Car Specialists are friendly and personable, plus they know what they're talking about. All work is approved before it's done and they'll let you know what's coming up. Very appreciated!


Ralph Hielema

Your work was excelent. Your prices are on the high side.


Tim Pickering

At times a little rough with expensive parts (rims for example scuffed), cleanliness in cars. Mechanically very sound.


Ron Bauer

I took my car in to German Car Specialist and got them to check out a few problems on my car. They got back right away and was a good experience for the price and the work done. Everything turned out really well!!


George Awad

I am the second owner of a luxury car that I brought to the German Car Specialist's because they are more affordable than the car dealer. They work quickly and have a pretty friendly staff. They don't come up with extra costs or problems, or try to find any hidden expenses. They had a nice waiting area with a TV, and they offered me coffee while they worked on my car. I will be going back very soon for some regular maintenance work.


Colleen K

The reason we took our car to German Car Specialist was due to an emergency and they were able to fit us in quickly. They were clear in their explanations about our options. Since we wanted to go on a family trip, they were good about being clear what had to be done now versus what could wait. The pricing and everything else was good. They called us often to give us updates on the car. Overall, good service!


Jarrel Plaxin

I took my rare B10 Alpina to get a new hose replaced because of the small leak coming from the radiator side, the "repair" was done timely but on my way home the water pump they put in came loose and began to spew coolant on components, luckily the shop offered to tow my car back to the shop after I pulled over to the side of the road noticing steam was coming out of my car, and now I have to wait 3 days from my original appointment to get my car back because the car was obviously not in running condition when they gave it back to me, the only redeeming factor would be kind lady at the front desk who responded to my call back quickly so I could return my car back to the shop


James S

German Car Specialist is a good service but they charge a too much for service they need to work on.


Vincent M

We've been going to German Car Specialist for the past three months and it's been a really great experience. It's more like going to a friend who is a mechanic. He knows what he is doing, and works with you to figure out the best method (optional prices and whether or not he'll be able to do the job) to figure out what method will be best for you. I really like him! The prices are super reasonable and I couldn't speak more highly of him. If you're in the area and you need a mechanic, I'd definitely look him up!


Paul Johnston

I was recommended to you by an AMA tow operator some 2 years ago. Your price for services were less than the dealer's but, notwithstanding they were more convenient, I decided to try you out. Service staff have been very friendly and transparent in the work done and what needed to be done. I always felt that recommendations made were in my interest and not just to increase your revenue. Keep up the excellent work and those friendly smiles - Paul


Ken M

German Car Specialist is very prompt and attentive. They are very knowledgeable and I never had any problems with them.


Jeff S

I purchased a vehicle from German Car Specialist. Their engagement, knowledge, and understanding of what issues we had was impressive. They applied their knowledge to the problems with our car. They gave specific input, and they offer immediate responses when I call. They also know their cars well. They saved me from purchasing a car that would have required a significant amount of maintenance down the road.


Kevin B

German Car Specialist car always does a great job with fixing our BMW, which can be difficult cars. They answer your questions and they stick with their quoted prices. They even wash your car for you which I think is a sweet extra.


May Quan

I have been coming to Two Square since I moved to Calgary in 2009 with my 2003 BMW. Beth was my advisor and she still remembers me each time I call. I trust her judgement and advice regarding repairs on my car - she is one of the main reasons I stay with Two Square. I recently brought my car in for check engine light and crazy wheel shuddering that resulted in over 8 key items identified needing attention. Beth helped me decide which were essential and never pressured me to get work done. When I picked my car up, it looked great - I realized they had not only done the usual wash but buffed out a huge scratched area, fixed up my front plate with a proper covering and generally doing way more than the usual clean on my car. Will definitely continue to use them, makes deciding to keep an old beemer easy when I have a place I trust to help me maintain it!


John McQuade

...This 2Square Auto team went to bat for us and our X3 when things went sideways with our independent warranty company over a major repair. We had a few more hurdles to jump over together but in the end things have worked out and our machine is back on the road behaving as it was meant to. This Team made those hurdles feel much shorter and made me feel comfortable in their abilities both in and out of the engine. Thanks for the effort spent on us and our vehicle !


Tom Ponting

I have had three visits, an Oil service/Inspection, a repair, and a maintenance appointment. All were done well, no surprises, and the triage system helped me make some decisions to fit my schedule.


David Allen

We had a very positive first visit with the shop. I was called before they went ahead with any repairs and new what to expect when I got there to pick up the Cayenne.


Jay Huey

Great, fiendly service and quality work. Much better rates and service than the dealership. Would recomment over dealers any day!


Morris H

Very good


Schad Richea

Brought my 04 Cayenne Turbo for its 120,000 KM service and to check a brake booster issue coming up periodically on my dash. Turns out I had a calcium problem and they tried to fix it. When the issue didn't resolve they fit me in very quickly the next week to fix it again. They explained everything in detail on the invoice and we're very friendly and courteous. They won't just replace parts for the sake of replacing them. Great for piece of mind


Stephen De Loof

Truly happy with the service we received great advice.


Laureen Plaxin

Thanks for reminding me of the tow opportunity.


Peter Major

I own a 2004 BMW X5 that I have always enjoyed driving and was not anxious to give up yet. I lost confidence with the service I was receiving from another outfit (the vehicle wasn't sounding right when it was running and on two occassions they said they couldn't identify the problem). It seemed it might be time to move into something new and I found a 2005 BMW X5 with under 70,000 km with a clean bill of health from an out of province inspection. I brought them both to German Car Specialist. They quickly corrected the sound, they fixed the few other problems I identified and carefully explained what lays ahead with the 2005 vehicle. My 2004 X5 now sounds good as new and perfectly fine to keep driving. Service was prompt and I got a thorough explanation of everything done and discovered. After starting the day with a shuttle into the downtown, my car was washed and the tires were cleaned when it was time for a pick up. Nice to feel as though someone else cared for my vehicle.


Steve Moore

Great experience. Took a bit longer than expected but advisor was friendly and made the wait as pleasant as possible.


Jose Hernandez

Excellent service.


Stephen Warnica

Friendly, knowledgeable reception staff. The work was completed in a timely fashion. I felt confident my car was in the hands of experts. And the total cost was significantly better than at the dealer's garage.


Randy Beck

Always a positive experience here. These guys have serviced my last 3 vehicles (BMW and Porsche) with good results.


Anthony Ostroman

Thank you for saving me a headache and the regret of buying a lemon. Highly recommended as a place to get a pre-purchase inspection done for your vehicle. Ken took the needed time to explain what the inspection covered, and what vehicles would benefit from an engine compression test. He even squeezed me in as my time table was short. Given my great experience, I will now use them as my go to mechanic. Thanks Ken!


Tino Dimanno

Friendly and reliable service. Price for storing tires is very reasonable.


Harry Cupric

Good communication. Explained work to be performed in advance and good customer service. Pleasant to deal with


Mark Salvador

Courteous, fast, reasonably priced, executive calibre service.


Robin Egerton

My first experience with German Car Specialist was superb. I came in for a simple oil change on my BMW SAV, and left extremely impressed with the knowledge, service, and support of the staff there. Right from the moment I handed over my keys, and was informed by Dennis to shed some of them because the extra weight on the key chain would stress my ignition, I knew I was in a place where the people knew what they were doing, and beyond that, actually cared about my vehicle and it's longevity. The inspection was thorough, and the female service rep ringing me through took the time to explain in detail the findings, even showing patience as I asked her subsequent questions. Having the complimentary car wash was just the icing on the cake: especially as they brought it out gleaming AND dry, not sopping wet, in a hurry to get me out and onto the next job. Great work German Car Specialists.....I've just found my new favourite shop.


John Legere

These guys are TOP Notch ! Extremely high customer attention and satisfaction. High quality detailed Inspections and mechanical work. There team found items missed by Certified Porsche Dealer ! Very Highly Recommended


Wayne Tennant

Very helpful staff.


Richard Game

Have had historically great service with German Car Specialist. Cost effective, very thorough and "just around the corner" from my work place which makes it very convenient.


Darrell Lawes

car told me the brakes needed to be done - they called and said the fronts were fine so I said go ahead with the back ones - I thought they would just replace the pads - they also routered the discs which I was not informed of but assume maybe thats their practice - next time I guess I have to clarify that.


Kim Jirim

nice specialist of german car.


Muhammad Siddiq

Recommended by friends to visit this shop.the guys there do good, honest work at very reasonable price. Would definitely go back there and recommend to anyone! Better than going to a dealership.The location is easy to get. Extremely friendly staff, comfortable waiting area, and the coffee is free. They also have wireless internet, full cable TV, and loads of magazines to pass the time. Your car smells wonderful, and somehow is a bit cleaner than when you go there. Good experience.


DJ Phukan

Went in to get summer tires put in lieu of snow tires. Also got brake lines flushed as part of regular maintenance.


Alessandro Biglioli

I had an engine strut repaired, the engine fell on the transmission that needed to be changed too, on top they changed a broken wheel nut (that Canadian tire asked me 250 dollars to do) and three lights, overall very satisfied, they are not cheap but german cars are not cheap and they are honest and good, so I'm happy.


Bill Klym

See above.


Julia Hambling-Bueheler

Always friendly and upfront on work


Noelle Leemburg

Requested an engine clean, this was not done. Did get a quote on one option for summer tires.


Mike Bishton

From my Z3's to my 911, they did a great job for me. Honest, fair and knowledgeable - what more can you ask for ......


Douglas Peterson

great service


Tariq Newaz

Very good service


Jeff Redmond

not sure what to write here


Sebastian Rodriguez

Great Customer Service and Good Service on Car.


Rob M

I have been going to 2 Square for almost a decade now and continue to find the service to be accurate and honest. Now that my car has aged they take that into consideration to evaluate what needs to be done when. The main reason that I am leaving a 4 star rating is when I first started coming the service always ended with a free wash and interior cleaning so the bar was set high.


Don Hansen

went out of their way to get my Mercedes in for import modifications


Clint Pollonais

This is the second time I have taken my vehicle there for service and although it is a bit out of the way for me, I appreciate the excellent service at a better price than the local dealer(s). JayLynn was very friendly and thorough with explaining the recommended work that my vehicle needed and they were respectful of my time by letting me know when my vehicle would be completed, As I joked, they make spending a few hundred dollars more tolerable.


Jason Clements

In my experience with German Car Specialist, they were very professional in their demeanor and only did what they said they would do. No extra surprises or charges. They were also very prompt and efficient with their time which was impressive and I would certainly go back to them again. Jason C.


Darcy Rennette

Excellent place to deal with. they had my car in very quick and looked at. I will be going back!


Dianne Macdougall Quan

Comprehensive and my car ran very well afterwards


Mohinder Parmar

very well taken care of,especially the sales person dennis went into every detail explaining what is required and how should i be more care full next time.


Ted Flood

Every thing went great


Robert King

My first visit has been an excellent one. Dennis and his staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I'm thrilled to have found a group that I can trust to get the job done right and at a fair price. I plan to have all my service done with them going forward and would recommend them based on my first impressions.


Sintra Peck

I had contacted Dennis to assist in a very unique diagnosis. Dennis was very helpful in our discussions leading up to the appointment, and he was good at returning calls or e-mails throughout the process. The diagnosis appointment went very well and Dennis and one of the technicians provided excellent service.


Colette Bielech

The cold did a number on my VW, but the symptoms could not be reproduced the day I brought the car in. The staff warned me that I could be paying the service charge for nothing. But they did find the problem and fixed it. Service was pleasant and phone follow up was excellent


Rod Nishiyama

I booked an early service appointment as I needed to wait for the car and it took just an hour to be back on the road. The impressive thing to note is that my need to wait was respected and the service prioritized to get me off and running promptly. On inspection of the work, everything was proper, left clean with no spills, greasy prints or or sign or carelessness. I was happy and impressed by the entire experience from the online booking, pleasant service writer, work done to final payment. The location is a bit out of the way for me (Mackenzie Lake) but worth my time to return for the service.


Gary Yamada

Should look at a process to ensure that the car gets washed before returning (if it's too cold, a coupon for a carwash at a Coop might be nice). Also, increased flexibility on drop offs and rides home would add to the service element.


David Leach

Selling my Mercedes and wanted an inspection done, GCS did a thorough job and always explain everything and accommodate requests. Will be bringing my newer Mercedes to them as well.


Judy Meyers

I love German Car Specialist. To begin with, they're a great deal cheaper than the services that my dealership offers. They don't try to upsell me or do anything that isn't absolutely necessary. If something needs to be repaired, they give me the option to do it myself or ask me if I want them to fix it. I appreciate their integrity and how honest they are. I've been using their services for about a year for my car's routine maintenance. I saved $200 just this last visit with them. The young lady at the front desk is very polite and flexible with my schedule. Nora and her husband, Dan are both really easygoing, professional, and helpful. I'm certainly very pleased with the service and even go out of my way just to use them.


Andrew M

This is a shop that cares about you and your vehicle. I have been taking my 20008 Mercedes to them for three years and the quality of service and repair is outstanding. Beth and Ben at the front desk are highly knowledgeable and the team in the back does exactly what is needed to bring your car back to full health. Plus, they have a loyalty program and they wash my car. Truly an exceptional shop.


Greg Clement

I am confused on what you are asking me to comment on.


John Mcintyre

I have nothing but good things to say about German Car Specialist. They do quality work and take the time to do it properly. I've been there more than a few times and they always seem to get the job done within a respectable amount of time. This place will go the extra mile for you. Whether is preventative maintenance or problems found during a free inspection, they don't b.s you, don't try to up sell you, and they seem to genuinely care for your cars well-being. They go the extra step also, they wash your car for free, and not just spray it down but take the time to detail the car and wheels, which is definitely noticeable. Took my car in for an oil change and they vacuumed the interior. Had a clip hanging down on my front bumper and they installed it correctly without even mentioning they did it. It's little things like this that make this place stand out. Would HIGHLY recommend going there and won't even consider the stealership.


Sue McGregor

We brought our vehicle in for a possible battery replacement. Turned out that not only was the battery faulty, but the alternator as well. They replaced both promptly and professionally. And when we had a subsequent (unrelated) problem, they treated us equally well. We were extremely pleased.


Fred Smith

German Car Specialists diagnosed a troublesome seal leak on my Blizzak winter tires on my Audi A6 and noticed that the centering rings were missing, causing vibration. I ended up ordering two new tires from Tire Rack, and German Car Specialists mounted and balanced by appointment. Excellent all around service!


Marion Rogers

I don't know what this question means - sorry.


Tom Kunimoto

Excellent service and top notch advisors that know what the mechanics/technicians are identifying and can accurately relay the facts. Vs. the dealership - from regular updates on status to the impeccable cleaning of your car for pickup, GCS is detailed - nothing with them is just going through the motions.


Frank Gialleonardo

Awesome


Sean Thompson

The only reason for not providing a fully glowing review is that the issue with my car is not resolved. I've been assured it is mechanically sound, but a check engine light remains and German Car Specialist could not tell me why.


Matthew May

I was travelling to Calgary when my car started having problems. I called on the end of Friday and they were able to arrange to see my car first thing Monday morning where the dealerships could not see it for a week. I had my car fixed that same week. I have already recommended them to my friend.


Lin Chen

German Car Specialist did a winter tire change for me on my car. They did a good job. They are very knowledgeable. They also were able to give me more information on vehicle maintenance that I may need in the future.The prices are reasonable. I will use them again.


Phil LeLievre

Thank you for the great service.


Tyler Bohnet

I take my vw here for everything. Much less than the dealership and the customer service is also much better.


Franco E., Logullo Industries

I used German Car Specialist for the first time, and everything's fine. I have no complaints. I would say you should go there!


Rick Unruh

I feel the staff is knowledgeable. I had asked if I could get my tires rotated the staff suggested they just look and measure the wear on the tires and if it was wearing evenly there was no need to rotate as spring is coming and the summer tires will be going on! This kind of treatment builds trust for me as a customer and when a service is suggested I trust it is because the car needs it not because the garage needs more income. Thanks for the great service!


Geff Beck

Recently took my SLK in to have an alignment issue looked at after hitting a large rock at 70km/h. Turns out there was more damage underneath than just allignment.... I've had my vehicle there before for service and really liked the staff and service. Jay-Lynn was very prompt and thorough. Handled communications with my insurance company and even a nearby autobody shop. At no time was I ever unaware of what was going on or the status of my vehicle. Her utilization of email updates was very valuable, as I spend most my days in meetings and find it difficult to take calls. The automative quality is also great and reasonablely priced. So much better than taking my car to the benz dealer for regular service. You have a customer for life!!


David Kennedy

The staff is friendly and easy to deal with.


Kauri Atwal

Service was quick and efficient.


Carl Fransen

Like the people and the waiting room is a comfortable place to wait (if you wish to) while your vehicle is being serviced.


Dean Buhler

work was done as promised and completed when they said


Len Dafoe

Two Square made the best of a bad situation for me. Their staff was extremely helpful and kept me informed about the process of the repair at every step. I am swearing off ever owning a German car ever again, but if you believe the hype re "German enginerring", then Two Square is the place to go when your Audi, BMW or Porsche inevitably breaks.


Kor & Christina Colyn

We took our Volvo xc70 here for routine servicing and overall inspection. Staff was friendly and called to confirm further work needing to be done. Only disappointment was the shuttle service, as we were unaware that the shuttle goes downtown first before dropping anyone else off, and had to call a friend to drive us home at the last minute. It would have been nice to know ahead of time, or even to run a North and South shuttle service. Other than that, we are happy with the service we received. It was nice to pick up a clean car at the end of the day.


Chris Barton

I had a complicated repair and GCS handled it very well. The bill was high, however the time spent on getting the car back in great running order was justified. Beth & Dennis kept me in the loop as to what was happening and they wouldn't return the car until they were convinced that is was running properly. When I picked it up Joe went through everything with me and was excellent in both his Presentation & Professionalism.


Pamela Moon & Kevin Kerwin Moon

A note of thanks and recognition to the "team" My vehicle previously presented with same issues and dealership just charged my battery and sent me home never spending the time / diagnostics to find underlying cause .. Service associate Jaylynn was relentless and found problem She worked hard getting my extended warrantee company onboard and ultimately replaced an expensive part with just deductible and small charge for diagnostics as costs to me . Special thanks to Beth and all who got my vehicle ready in the nick of time as I came back into town after being away ..won't hesitate to recommend to friends and family !!! Great company owners managers should be very proud of their front line people !


Cory Brown

This was my first apointment with Two Square Auto and already I feel that I can trust the Service Technician and Dennis. A seasonal inspection was done on my vehicle along with an oil change. The Technician was thorough and pointed out a couple of things that may become a problem in the future, but not an issue at this time. The entire experience was very professional from the time of booking until I picked up my vehicle. ( A reminder e-mail about the scheduled appointment, a shuttle ride to work and very friendly and knowledgeable front end staff. Perfect!! )


Kene Ilochonwu

Took my car in on a recommendation, and got winter tires changed at half the initial price quoted and leaky hose changed at 10% of the price quoted by my dealer! There is an honest and humble vibe in the shop which is very refreshing. Will definitely return. Did I mention the sparkling cleaning inside and outside of your car when you pick it up?! What's not to like!


Derek Mavuwa

Took our Touareg in for new shoes (winter tires) and these guys not only changed out my old tires and disposed of them per my request but they also found time to wash the T-reg and to polish its new shoes without even me asking them to do it. The VW dealership I had been going to has not once washed my car even though they ask and I give them the go ahead to do it. I get the same excuse - sorry but we were just too busy!! The GCS front-line staff is exceptional - Beth is whom I have dealt with and she is really exceptional. She is confident, straight up and honest. I will be switching services done to our cars from dealership to GCS.


Simon Hersey

I thought I would give these guys a try and I was not disappointed. Before I booked an appointment I called them and spelled out my expectations (which are very hight). They did not bat an eye, but were confident they could meet my expectations. My Audi S4 was returned to me clean and a quick inspection revealed no short-cuts or spills. I have only used them once, but I will be back. The communication from their service department was friendly and excellent.


Christopher Janostin

Although I was just in to change into myu winter tires, I was thoroughly impressed with the staff and the service that I received. My car was washed extremely well and the changeover to the new TPMS system was explained thoroughly. All in all a great experience.


Merry Milne

Very professional, treated my car and i with utmost respect.


Stan Wong

Dennis was very knowledgeable and helpful on fixing my Porsche Boxster.


Oscar Turingan

Fantastic service by Ben and his team in handling the case of my BMW 530i that went through $@!#% literally (garage fire) and back! Car is practically back to its original form. Best part is, Ben called me today stating I was accidentally overcharged due insurance complexity and a credit is waiting for me on my next service. Honesty at work here! Will definitely use these guys again!


Mohamed Elkady

German Car Specialist did an inspection on my car mechanically and electronically as well. They went beyond what I requested and it turned out great. I loved their customer service. Especially, the way they take care of their customers and explain everything, major and minor, so you'll be aware of problems and how to properly and economically fix your car.


Minaz Kassam

On my recent visit, very much appreciated the courteous service and fair assessment and pricing of the work performed. Will continue to use German Car Specialists, as I can depend on them for skilled service at a fair price.


Kirsten Dow-pearce

GCS was very friendly, did what was asked and for the price quoted or cheaper. They did not try to up-sell anything. I will continue to bring my car to them for service and repairs. Thank you.


Paola Romanelli

I brought in my Jetta for time belt and service. The staff helped me explaining what needed to be done a pricing it very clearly. They then phoned me explaining all the other problems they had found and priced them. They took picture of the damage they had encountered and gave me a list of other work they recommend doing. The approach was very professional, the guy at the desk was very patient explaining me. Overall, except from the bill, which was high but because there were lots of problem, I'm very pleased with the experience and I will go back there


Glenn Jelinski

I started bringing my BMW to GCS once the warrranty ran out. Initially because it was so much easier to get a service appointment but I quickly discovered they also do great work. The customer service staff are very professional and Dennis is an excellent resource if you are considering performance upgrades. It's not the cheapest place in town but they're definitely worth it. The interior and exterior cleaning they give your car every time is a nice touch. Way to go guys!


John Sharp

Repairing Audi cars off warrantee is never a good financial experience because it inevitably becomes a high cost. However it also is only possible with specialist knowledge and experience, which this group clearly has and completes work with great service and high competence, while continuing to learn by experiences. Once a repair is properly completed it is worth the wait time, and the work put in if you are an Audi owner and enthusiast, although with the high costs any cost saving measures need to be a part of the equation. Based on the last 3.5 years of maintaining and repairing two Audi cars off warrantee at Two Square (German Car Specialists) we have now established a very good continued customer / business relationship. They are intent on doing the right work, have the appropriate technical focus (because of specialist knowledge), consider equipment safety, and support reasonable plans for longer term ownership and managing high costs (ie. advice for decisions with sensible work deferral and advice on timing). They are already improving with lower repair costs (down side of owning an Audi off warrantee). Although we will continue as older Audi car drivers and good customers it would be great if they could provide advice on the sourcing of 2-3 year old German cars and SUV's in the Calgary area or the same 2-3 year old cars from auctions etc., or even cars they have worked on or inspected, and which models and vintages were more reliable.


Willy And Janie Bont

The staff at German Car Specialist is pleasant and helpful. They quickly assessed the issue and fixed it within 24 hours.


Nick Dupuis

Two Square does what they said they would and goes beyond by ensuring my questions are answered and understood before I leave.


Rob Imbeau

Put simply, I had a problem, and German Car Specialist told me how much it would cost and it was exactly that amount. Their service was great and they were kind, courteous, attentive, and conscientious.


Kenneth Rodas

Work done as requested without complications. Very kind and professional receptionists, would definitely use their services in the future. The only reason I didn't give them 5 starts in "Total Experience" was because of inaccurate completion time: when I called to make my appointment they mentioned that switching to winter tires would take at most 30 mins, but it ended up taking around an hour and a half. No big deal but I would have appreciated a heads-up.


Ross Brown

Everything went as promised - pleasant reception and work done as requested.


Wayne Brennan

Installed and balanced 4 new tires to satisfy inter provincial requirement. Again, time constraints, and German Car Specialists complied to my wishes and found a time slot to take care of my needs. Professional, courteous, willing to take the time to exlain any detail and rspectful of both vehicles that i have had serviced ar this facility. I would highly remommend their services to my friends and family without hestitation.


Lovepreet Saini

One of the main service representatives Jay-Lynn is excellent, very accommodating, and goes the extra mile to figure out whatever you ask. Spoke with the owner I believe, Geoffrey, very nice, seemed honest about the work required. Had some work done on my Mercedes by them before, everything was done fine. A lot cheaper than what the Mercedes dealership quoted me (about half the cost) and the service is a lot better, you can actually talk about your car with them instead of being rushed out like you are at Mercedes dealerships in Calgary. Will go there for any German car work in the future. Highly recommended.


Renee Chu

Ben at German Car Specialist is great! I had him do an out of province inspection and the installation of my winter tires. They did a wonderful job and I'm very pleased.


Bruce White

First time i visited, and found service to be great.


Chris Sandvoss

Although the cost of any vehicle repair is never pleasant, one hopes that they are done in an expert, professional, and therefore, correct manner. It pays to only pay once. I highly recommend German Car Specialist for peace of mind.


Mauro Driusso

Had ordered tires from tire rack and chose German Car Specialist as the recommended installer. Very professional and friendly staff and they also washed my car and polished the tires before pick up. Will be using them to swap out the winters and have the summers put back on! Waiting area is clean and comfortable, with magazines and a tv if you're waiting. Not to mention coffee and water as well. Excellent service!


Mike OKane

Very much satisfied with the service provided. Professional, informed, and caring. The washing and detailing of my vehicle was a very nice surprise, and I think reflects their approach to service. Excellent!


Peter Roznicki

good


Rahul Sheth

Nothing but honesty and reliable.


Vinh Doan

Trustworthy


Scott Ferguson

Service handled efficiently and courteously. Adressed my questions effectively.


Anita Gray

They were super easy to work with when it came to what work needed to be done. Jay Lynn, was very patience with my questions. The job was done well, and efficiently. Thanks for a great experience. Anita


Kevin & Sheena Denscombe

We took our Mini Cooper for service as we had a motor light on. We understood the extensive service that may be required in advance along with the $$ that it may incur. They didn't hide costs or make excuses. We knew exactly what they were doing, step by step with the excellent communication from Beth our customer service person. Our motor light came on again after we picked it up and with a phone call back to them, they were more than happy to help us rectify it. We knew and understood that these vehicles were expensive to repair but they do last forever with the right service. They treated me very nice plus my wife. We will be returning.


Sonia & Richard Smoker

After being taken for a long and expensive ride by my local mercedes dealership the staff at German Car Specialists are a breath of fresh air! They not only remember my car but my name! Always friendly, accommodating, and give fast service at a VERY reasonable price. No double talk, no surprises, and my car is clean when I take it home! I can't say enough good things about this place!


Kim Glenn

German Car Specialist was really helpful and knowledgable on my issues. Everything was explained thoroughly and the quote was a bit on the high side so that is always a nice surprise. I was very disappointed in the shuttle service though. They drove me to work but then told me they could not pick me up as it was a one way shuttle only. I was stranded and that made no sense. How is someone supposed to get their car after then? So I ended up absorbing a $55 cab that I was not prepared for. That put a little dark cloud on my otherwise great experience.


Tim Tycholis

Definately four out of five for technical capability


Mel Anderson

Appreciated the feedback that they demonstrated prior to the repair iteself.


Mike Smyrl

engine work was extensive was kept up to date on a regular basis on work required, costs & time estimates was very pleased with mechanical work and customer service


Robert Taylor

always know my car is in good hands.......


Kurt Kowalchuk

I bring my three German cars to German Car Specialists and have always been very happy with the service that I have received. Even just small touches like followup calls a week or so after bringing a car in to see if everything is alright.


Jerry Kohut

Very knowledgeable and there recommendations were clear. Looking forward to returning with our other vehicle.


Brad Muir

Had all 3 of our vehicles in for service (1) and detailing (3). Great job on detailing and excellent service and follow up. Shuttle is quick into downtown. The express bus is a good option out of downtown also. I'll definitely be back!!


Ed Coward

As a new owner of an import sports vehicle I feel I was exploited to a certain extent. As a result when additional work was required I went to another repair service.


Bruce Herring

Very good service


Tom St.Clair

Beth makes it a pleasure.


Bob Wilkins

I drive a CLK 63 Cabriolet that I refuse to take to the dealer that I purchased the car from new. This due to theirs and Mercedes arrogant and self serving attitude. I have taken the vehicle GCS for the last two years for service and any repairs needed. I have received excellent service and advice from the folks that work there. This vehicle is a summer driver only and they look after it very well.


Bob Knight

great experience... nice staff.. competent work


Deborah Wiebe

German Car Specialist is courtious and knowledgable. They try hard to meet your requirments including umergency appointments and unlike some places try to look for the cost effective solution first.


Mark Antonuk

I took my car in to get an oil change, general checkup and new tires. The service provided was very comprehensive. Even though I had a little issue with the cooling cap not being properly secured I found the service to be "top notch". The issue was handled by the owner in a very professional manner...very refreshing to receive personal service like I did!


Lewis Levin

I found them to be professional and attentive in every way. They went out of their way to solve my problem


Sean Fontaine

Each time I have been to German Car specialists they have exceeded my expectations. First time they washed my car after a simple oil change, which was unexpected and appreciated. The next time they refused to take my money to fill a chip in the windshield as it was simply on the surface and would not spread (they were right). When I picked up my vehicle after the latest oil change and brake fluid flush the owner of the shop took half an hour out of the middle of his day to sit down with me and listen to my worries about the turbos on my BMW and the scary stories I read on the web. that made me feel much better and showed me how well they know they know these vehicles. I wont share my horrible experiences with the BMW dealers in Calgary but suffice it to say I only bring my Fraulein to German Car Specialists.


William Thompson

My Mercedes was at another shop where they were unable to diagnose a communications problem for 3 weeks. I spoke to Jay Lynn at 2 Square, set up an appointment and within 4 days the car was diagnosed, repaired and cleaned for pick-up. Truly German car experts. Invoice was exactly what was quoted. .


Greg Hutchings

I had a few bad experiences at other mechanic shops. Over 6 months other shops could not diagnose or pinpoint my cars idle issue. The German Car Specialists were able to diagnose and correct most of my car issues within an hour. My car is working great now. I also got a full detailed report of the work completed. I also received a list of other issues to look at down the road. They did not force me into these repairs or any extra repairs that were not needed. They only did what I asked, that is hard to find these days. Thank you again!


Anne Whittaker

I am just writing again to say that I spoke with Dennis (owner) this morning and further to my issue from last week on my misunderstanding of the diagnoses charge. Dennis was very nice and explained to me the reason for this charge and made me feel much better. I would like to say that I will bring my vehicle back to see these guys, I feel they treat my little bug just as good as the higher end cars they work on. I am impressed they took the time to call me and explain things to me, this shows that from the front end staff who greet you to the mechanics to the owner himself all go out of there way to make sure you are satisfied with all aspects of your visit. will most definitely take my little bug back here!!!


Delbert Nattrass

I have found the staff and service to be excellent with a knowledgable service staff and quality workmanship. Best wishes to Dennis, Beth, Dave Blackwell and everyone else.


Mark Sanders

I have been looking for a good mechanic ever since my last mechanic decided to retire. I purchased a Volvo XC90 and wanted a mechanic who understood European cars. After going through many mechanics and yes even the dealership, I have been taking my car to two Square Auto for about 4 years now and wish I found them sooner. My over all experience has been absolutely fantastic, everyone who works here wants to ensure that the experience you have is as painless as possible and they are all very accommodating. If you are looking for honesty, excellent experience with European vehicles and excellent experience look no further.


Trevor Ross

Over the years I have owned five german brands and they have serviced them all. Always a positive experience.


Ken Bateman

Needed some service and software updates on my 2005 645CI. Could not get anything resembling customer service from either of the two BMW dealerships in Calgary. German Car was responsive,helpful and accomodating and reasonably priced.


Maria Genilo

They always try to accommodate my availability in booking appointments. I appreciate their effort to please their customers all the time.


Charles Goodhart

I have been bringing my car to German Car Specialist for over 2 years now. The service is quick, done right and verified. Anytime I have questions about a problem they are happy to take the time to make sure that I understand and whenever they can even help me over the phone. The perks of the reward system are great which include tow services.


Rebecca Mayhew

I appreciated the efforts of the staff to fit me in when I had an unexpected tight timeline. Work is always completed on time and for the amounts quoted.


Ben Greenbaum

The folks at GCS, from the owner to the technicians, have always gone out of their way to get me great service at the best possible price. There is nobody else to whom I take my German car.


Martin Davies

My estimate was accurate, minimal waiting for the drive downtown (thank you) and the used transfer case solution was great. Martin


Kailash Chauhan

I ordered 4 sets of winter tire & rim online from US for my 2012 Q7 & it was delivered directly at German Car Specialist workshop in Calgary. It was stored at their location based on my request for couple of weeks. Finally swapping of my all season with winter tire was quite easy. I am pretty much happy with service. Thanks to German Car Specialist, Calgary.


Dave Williamson

I am a first time user of your business. I only had my oil changed so not much to comment on as far as the work that was performed. The service was very good, the people at the desk seemed to understand and could comment on the work being done. I will use you again.


Virginia Dobbie

I bought an X5 piece of junk.. The German Car Specialists have brought my piece of junk back to life.. Thanks, Beth and Dennis and all the great mechanics you have. Virginia


Randy Rice

Highly knowledgeable staff at the front desk that are clearly focussed on making you happy. If something isn't right with you they will try to make it right. Will attempt to reduce your charges wherever possible. Very courteous shuttle service.


GILLES BEGIN

OWNER IS VERY GOOD COMMUNICATOR


David Gibson

The staff and manager were rude and gave me little confidence in their work.


Terry Thibodeau

From the moment I bought my "cursed" BMW in the U.S. and brought it back to Canada, Dennis Kaltenbruner and the fantastic staff at German Car Specialists have bent over backward to make sure that all of the issues I've had were resolved promptly and with the utmost professionalism. I've always felt like my business matters at German Car Specialists, unlike the wallet-draining BMW "stealerships". Dennis has really helped me out several times with some pretty serious incidents such as my sunroof exploding and my windshield being smashed from a hail storm right before a big trip. Other shops just turned me away. German Car Specialists' staff are experienced, professional, and top-quality, while providing a small-town shop atmosphere where everybody knows your name. I can't recommend them enough!


Geoff Carlyle

The owner personally drove with me in my car to experience the ride that I had an issue with. He also dropped me off at work! Good Job.


Randall Beck

Techs with BMW experience, no BS.


Dan Bartholomew-Poyser

Hi, I recommend you guys to everybody and have been super impressed with the level of service, attention to detail, and personal touch that you give, right from the top down.


Bob Fonger

I wish to extend a big thank you to Dennis Kaltenbruner, the owner of German Car Specialist, and his very competent Team of Mechanics and Staff. I had obtained a distressed 1999 Porsche Boxster with a blown engine and an optional 3.4 Ltr engine from a Porsche 911. Both Motors required rebuilding, and if we used the 911 motor a conversion would have been required to install the motor in the Boxster. The Boxster was a USA based car so it also required an Out Of Country inspection as well as an Out Of Province inspection. Dennis and his Team at German Car Specialist, took on the project of restoring this vehicle back to a reliable, road worthy, safe, and Alberta Canada registered car. They began with a general assessment of Both Motors, and the vehicle itself and all the major systems in the car. They found both engine options were in need of complete rebuilds, and that the cars basic electronic infrastructure was intact and operational. Dennis then produced 2 options for me to choose from, to proceed with the project with approximate pricing for each option. I chose to have the cars existing engine completely rebuilt and to scrap the conversion option, since we could not be as exact on the price due to unknowns doing a conversion. As they proceeded with the rebuild and general reconditioning of the cars systems, Dennis kept me advised of the progress and any obstacles and extra service requirements as they presented themselves. The communication throughout the project was top-notch. At the end of the project the pricing was close to plan, my Boxster passed all inspections, and all systems had been checked, serviced and were operational. I have had the Car 3 weeks now and love it. Last weekend I took it through the mountains out to BC. The car ran perfect and I am very happy with it. I only have great things to say about my experience with German Car Specialist and their team of staff. Right from the front counter to the shop I received nothing but the finest service level one could hope for. In this day and age service like this is almost impossible to find. Thank you again for a fantastic job and service experience. Regards Bob
