Very good and professional
I needed to do my 36k Subaru inspection. When I saw a dealership quote I was shocked by the price. I decided to google and found Apex in Edmonton. The person over the phone gave me a price quote way smaller than the dealer, so I decided to give these guys a try.
The shop was located very far from my home/work, as I live on the South side of Edmonton, so it took me awhile to get to the north part of the city. Luckily, the LRT station is just a few blocks away.
The shop is very neat and it's owner (Chris) is very friendly and open. He gave me a ride to and from the LRT, which was really nice.
The final invoice did not include any extras. I told Chris that the air filters don't need to be changed as I just changed them myself. And as he promised, there was no additional charge for the air filters.
In overall, the job was well done (at least what I could check visually):
- the breaks were adjusted
- all fluids were new
- many paint marks appeared on the connections (a sign of a good mechanic to me)
Apex also provides an unprecedented warranty of 3 years/60k km on labour, materials, and parts.
There was one small issue though... Once I came back home, I noticed that the level of the antifreeze was at "Low". I just purchased a bottle of ready to use antifreeze and added some. It doesn't seem like it's leaking as after driving for another 1000 km it still stays at "Full".
