Takeshi @ Taiyo Auto, also on Dawson. Great guy to deal with and prices are very reasonable.

I recommend my mechanic at Gold Wrench Automotives.

The shop is located in North Vancouver (sorry its not in burnaby), but fairly close on the highway.

Just giving this recommendation because he's very honest, goes great work, for a more than fair rate.

Bayon Automotive in Burnaby, i been going to Walter for 8 years,he will tell you straight up, "you don't brakes, they're good for another year, you don't need coolant, it's fine." He has enough loyal customers he doesn't need to waste time doing redundant work. Also, he has the best rates for Liqui Moly full synthetic 5W-40 in the entire province. $50 including tax for 5L ! Lowest rates for oil changes too, and he won't mark up things like filter, whatever he got it for, he will charge.
