Default Trusted Mechanic in the Kitchener area?

Hey Guys

I was wondering if anyone can suggest a trusted and cost effective Sprinter mechanic in the Kitchener area? I drive a 2007 3L Diesel Dodge Sprinter. I am looking for a good place for general maintenance (oil changes etc) as well as the possiblility of fixing any other issues that my come up.

Thanks
Mike

I guess you're referring to Kitchener, Ont; Canada!?

Well there's the Roadtrek Sprinter RV factory that might know of a local Sprinter service establishment or private mechanic as they import/collect a lot of Sprinters for their RV conversions.

cheers....

Yes, I am talking about the Kitchener ON Canada area. I should have been more specific.

I do know the Roadtrek you are talking about, but not sure if they will have a good lead for a mechanic or not. But it might be worth an email. Anyone else out there have any suggestions?

Thanks
Mike

You could ask the local Independent European Import repair shops Autocube or M1 Motor Service if they have experience with MB Sprinters or if hey know who does.

If you don't want to try the local Mercedes dealership Victoria Star Motors,
and you don't want to learn to do it right yourself from other experienced Forum users here,

go to an experienced independent like the one in Mississauga,
Dynavin Automotive Inc - Sprinter Service & Repair
1170 Eglinton Ave E, Mississauga, ON L4W 2M7, 905-361-0410

I highly recommend Dynavin in mississauga. Well worth the drive. 1170 Eglinton Ave. E. Unit 3, in mississauga, Dixie and eglinton area. There are expedite drivers that come from all over, even as far as Windsor to see Peter. he is MB trained specifically on Sprinters. he is the only one I let work on my 2011 Sprinter.

I've had some pretty good luck with Buehler automotive in Alma, ON. Just north of Fergus/Elora ON. I know that it's at least 1/2 hr away from KW. The owner, Ken has worked on many sprinters; has the MB software. Pretty Solid outfit.
Their number is: 519 846 9221.
We have '07 and 2014 sprinters, both 2500s and both reefer vans.

I have great respect and trust for Mike Kuznicki at Georgian Bay Motors in Springmount (Owen Sound) I have a 2007 and Mike solved various emissions/glow plug related issues. I send all my kids to Mike.

Would you happen to have his contact email, I cannot call Canada from the States, I can cross the border though. There are no Sprinter mechanics in the Motor city area.
