Re: From Canada?
Hey fellow Canucks, I am a new member from Calgary.
I am looking for an alternative to the massive dealer labour costs. A trustworthy mechanic, be it in a smaller shop or even a GM trained individual who has plenty of experience working on Northstar equipped cars that works out of his garage?
Do any of you know of a good place to take my Caddies for repairs here in Alberta?
I really appreciate any help here as I am willing to pay to have my cars repaired as long as I can find a qualified individual or shop.
I have wondered the same, havent needed anything yet... Was thinking of Jack Carter's (only Caddy dealer in town) but I'm sure their per/hr rate is high. I was also contemplating Davenport Mortorsports for some performance goodie installs (they do lots of vettes) but havent reasearched it any further.
hey all... looks like we have a few from calgary. I just moved to calgary from vancouver. and just bought my first caddy.. it's a 98 catera. so far I love it.. I'll prolly be asking the calgarians a lot of questions, like mechanics and where to buy parts.
Jack Carter isn't only Cadillac dealer in Calgary. CMP Classic in NE is a Caddy dealer as is GSL. I've had a bit of an issue with Carter when I brought my car in from USA. I had to show them what was wrong with the part in question. I'll be bringing it back when it snows for work so I will see how that works out. As far as good private shops couldn't tell. I do my own work. Just rebuilt two 2.4 litre DOHC motors Cavalier/Sunfire for two of my kids.
Another Calgarian here. The Cadillac is not mine, it is my brothers (I am a mercedes man) but I do the majority of the minor work on it. I too am looking for a reputable mechanic to service what I can not. My brother and I are both students so needless to say we already spend the majority of what little cash we have on our cars and I dont want my brother to take it to jack carter and get ripped off.... again. Somebody must know a good mechanic with his own shop in or around town?
p.s. the car is a black on grey 93 FWD 4.9 Deville that I picked out with him a couple of years back

Albertan...I was going to try Jack Carter as CMP is next to useless for work on my 06 DTS. After 7 visits [in 6 months] and 8 problems (one caused by them) I have 4 problems fixed. Anyone know how to fix HID headlights that stay on in bright light?
