“I would highly recommend Shore Automotive for all your Land Rover needs. They did terrific work on my 1997 Defender 300TDI. Not only did they improve power in properly adjusting the timing, but they noticed a number of small brewing problems and offered a few options to deal with them speedily and effectively. Their service is excellent and they are really focused on having a happy customer. It drives like a new truck now! Carl Marcotte.”

I was in today to have my brakes checked on my 2016 Landrover Discovery. While I had expected to have them checked and have to come back another day to have the work done. To my surprise and pleasure they had pre-ordered the brakes, so they were able to complete the work all in one visit. It was refreshing to see the forethought they gave to my visit and that they did not try to over sell me into buying front brakes, which don’t need to be changed yet. I highly recommend Shore Automotive, their staff was friendly, informative and very helpful. I will be back and let everyone know the great service I received.
If you have an older Jaguar in need of maintenanc
Thank you Greg and Scott! We are grateful for the fantastic service and care you’ve taken with our truck and especially the time you took to explain everything to my husband and I.
Took my Range Rover Sport there for some work, quick diagnoses of what was wrong, accurate estimate (and half the price of the dealer) and all done the same day! Would recommend without hesitation. I’ll be back with my Range Rover Classic shortly!
Thank you to Greg and Scott for everything. I’m so glad to have found trustworthy people who are knowledgeable and provide excellent customer service and satisfaction. Will definitely be coming back with our LR3.
Greg and Scott are extremely knowledgeable not only with Jaguars and Land Rovers, but with all makes and models. I brought my 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 to a different garage about a month ago to have it serviced before the winter, and was completely dissatisfied with their work. I pulled into Shore St Automotive so I could have a second opinion on the work I’d had done, and immediately felt comfortable in the shop. They put it right on the hoist, checked everything I had had done, and tightened tie rods that this other garage had apparently “forgotten” to do. After that, they serviced my front brakes (in no time at all) with excellent quality. My front end felt like it was brand new just from the tightening of the tie rods, and the brakes were (and still are) solid as can be. If you want fast friendly service from experienced professionals, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND SHORE ST AUTOMOTIVE!!!! I will be coming here for ALL of my auto service needs. THANKS GREG AND SCOTT!
I was very pleased to find an excellent alternativ
Had a great experience
This was my first time bringing my 2014 Range Rover Evoque to Shore. My Turbo required replacing. Scott was extremely helpful and kept me in the loop throughout the estimate and repair process. This level of customer service is above and beyond anything I have experienced. My car was fixed on time and on quote, which was far less than the dealer. I will never bring my car anywhere else. Thank you so much.
I had recently changed all 4 air bags on the vehicle, so when that lovely air suspension warning came up on dash, and my poor vehicle was sagging down I brought it in to these guys.
I’ve owned the vehicle for roughly a year now, and I do a lot of my own mechanical work (with the help of my licensed mechanic father in law) so this was the first time I needed a Land Rover specific tech that knows their way around these vehicles (father in law is Porsche/Audi tech).
These guys were absolutely great to deal with from start to finish. First I read the great reviews they have and decided to see for myself.
From booking the appointment they were incredibly receptive over the phone, then dropping off the vehicle they were great to get me in and out same day (for diagnostic) as my 2nd vehicle is out of commission for a large job. Very upfront through the process.
They really do know their way around these vehicles which is awesome. But the best part is they are very honest, and write a greatly detailed inspection report showing the steps they took to diagnose the failure, to then also ensure no leaks in system, gave the faults that displayed (compressor output), explained how they came to the conclusion that they did (with proof of fault codes), checked voltages on height sensors etc.
What more could you ask for? Most businesses (and not just mechanics, but also construction/trades etc) will keep you in the dark mostly, while giving minimal information to deter you from fixing yourself / leaving for second opinion at risk of some imaginary catastrophic failure so you’ll use their services out of fear of immediate necessity.
These guys are the exact opposite and man is it refreshing to see true great service. I will definitely be back soon, and you should too. Work is top notch and they’ll have you up and running. Keep up the great work guys and soon the Land Rover Ottawa stealership bays will be empty. 😉
I own a 2015 Jaguar XF had it at the local dealer several times for an issue. I basically gave up on them and just lived with the problem until something else went wrong with the car. Found these guys online and looked at the reviews. All I can say is they are professional honest and know what they are doing within hours of dropping the car off i had a diagnosis and emailed quote on the cost and when they could fix it. I got my car back A1 service would recommend these guys to anyone. Awesome Service. The Dealer should take a course on Service from these guys. Thanks Again
I am on my second used Range Rover and would not have purchased another but for Scott and the great people at Shore Street Automotive. They are all, to a man, terrific, knowledgeable and friendly. The service and commitment to customer satisfaction is a rarity in this disposable society and I am ever so lucky to have discovered them. I am happy to pass along a terrific automotive business that know Land Rovers. Well done Scott and team! Cheers
Amazing place to go and service your Land Rover or Jaguar. Scott and Greg are two amazing guys, helpful and knowledgeable. The prices are always fair and everything is explained so even a noob like me understand. Good prices for the replacement parts too, used to buy my own and find quite good deals but theirs are better. Great job and I would recommend the to anyone.
Brought my Range Rover Sport for service. All the technicians were very nice and professional. Got an appointment within a very reasonable time frame. They’re very quick and won’t waste your time. Don’t even risk bringing your vehicle to the Ottawa dealer they will loose your appointment or make you wait several hours before starting to work on your vehicle. Prices are much cheaper to the dealer. Would recommend anyone who has a recent or older Land Rover or Jaguar to visit Shore Street Automotive. You won’t be disappointed!
I have entrusted my Jaguars – classic and not-so-classic – to Greg and Scott for some years now, and they have never run better. Latest example: my 1994 XJS had play in the steering and pulled to the side when braking. A brake flush and new bushings, and she is driving, steering and stopping as solidly as the day she left the showroom. These guys embody integrity, work ethic, and expertise. Very glad I found them. – Geoff.
I came across shore Automotive shop searching online for parts needed on my 01 VDP. I assumed ,I was calling the local dealer🤔 after a short intro over the phone, Scott the owner set me straight on his Shop Specialties & Services . I enquired about what I needed & he had my parts within 2 hrs!! We met the next day when picking up my parts. First impression? You can be certain as long as I keep the VDP I will call for part needs & or services with Shore Automotive!! Friendly,courteous, & definately lower prices than Dealer! Thanks Scott!😎
Took my Range Rover Evoque in for some mysterious errors that the dealership was unable to fix for over a week (actually, they said they DID fix it, even though it was clear that the errors kept coming back). The boys fixed me up in 1 day and she’s driving better than when I got her!
Shore St. Automotive is seriously the best shop I have been to in terms of knowledge and overall service. The team was very informative and took their time explaining exactly what our issues were and the repair plan.
All items on the invoice were clearly explained as to what work was done and the time spent on each issue.
I highly recommend Shore St. Automotive to anyone looking for very knowledgable staff and superior service. We are so thankful we found our forever automotive shop!
Amazing service! Got the TCCM module reprogrammed on my RRS. Greg took the time to discuss with me in a very friendly and professional manner! I do my own mechanical work most of the time so understand cars… I had not feeling that they are trying to screw me over… they did what was right for me and charged me the fair price. Good job!
Shore Street Automotive provided excellent service, on time, and as estimated during the diagnostic check. There was no up-selling and the car was ready for pickup when I was told the schedule was, and calls were made informing me of progress and its being ready for pickup. The service was excellent. The treatment and professionalism was excellent. There was no up-selling and no surprises. I would highly recommend Shore Street Automotive to anyone requiring service on their Land Rover vehicles. Scott and Greg were great. Five of Five stars !!!!!
Excellent service provided with quick problem resolution and supportive advice. Probably the best I have encountered. The team recognised I needed my vehicle back quickly and turned the repair round in a few hours. I have rarely walked away from a repair shop feeling so confident and pleased with the work undertaken.
Amazing place to go and service your Land Rover or Jaguar. Scott and Greg are two amazing guys, helpful and knowledgeable. The prices are always fair and everything is explained so even a noob like me understand. Good prices for the replacement parts two, used to buy my own and find quite good deals but theirs are better. Great job and I would recommend the to anyone.
Right before Christmas break alternator on my LR3 went away. With lots of driving planned it was a bad surprise… Dealership offers booking for after new year, way too long… I start looking around and stumble upon Scott and Greg, to my surprise they took me in right away for diagnostics and quickly identify the problem, moreover, despite Christmas around the corner they squeeze me into their tight schedule and next day I was up and running !!! Thanks a lot Gents ! Appreciate your business very much.
Scott and Greg from Shore St. Automotive are fantastic. Quick turnaround, great attention to detail, and a much more competitive price than the dealership. I’ll be bringing my Range Rover here from now on.
Land Rover / Jag owners – take a close look at this place. Honest, decent guys who deliver what they promise, at a fair price. These are certified specialists in LR/Jag who can service your vehicle without the aggravation associated with the dealer. I highly recommend them.
I purchased a Defender from overseas and initially took it to another shop. After a serious issue at their end I looked up another local Land Rover specialist. I located Shore Street and explained my predicament to Greg, who answered my call. I took my Defender 90 to them and they resolved the issue quickly and inexpensively without fuss or bother. I have been back a few times and have since imported a Spanish Defender 110.
I will be using Shore Street for all my Land Rover needs as well for my other vehicles too. I do not hesitate but recommend Scott and Greg. What a knowledgeable, personable and reasonable 2 guys; you couldn’t ask for more. Given Scott is a fellow Scot too you can’t go wrong.
We are dealing with ex Jaguar and Land Rover Ottawa specialists who have branched out on their own. The city is a better place with this operation and these 2 guys. Thank you Scott and Greg
Thank you Greg and Scott. The latest visit was my second but this time it was for a major job. Scott provided me a detailed estimate which turned out to be 1/2 of what the dealer had quoted me. The work was done on time and below the quoted estimate. Scott kept me aware of the progress on the repairs and saved me money down stream by pointing a few additional preventive repairs that could be done now and would save more expensive ones later. Thanks to them my almost 8 year old Jaguar runs like new again. I strongly recommend them. RM
My experience with Shore St. Automotive has been nothing short of exceptional! I have been very impressed with the level of customer service and attention to detail that Scott and Greg provide to their clients. I just had a timing belt replaced at the garage and Scott worked late one evening so that I could get my Range Rover back before the weekend. They are clearly more interested in building lasting customer relationships than simply performing a one-time repair. What I appreciate most is that Scott and Greg are “car guys” who are very passionate about Land Rovers and Jaguars. I would not hesitate to refer my family and friends to Shore St. Automotive for all of their repair and service needs! Stephen Davies
Best Land Rover service and repair shop in the Ottawa area, hands down. Fast work, knowledgeable and experienced with Land Rover models across the range, very fair and honest, friendly service. I have had problems with my LR3 sorted quickly here that the dealer had no clue how to fix. An outstanding independent garage. The local Land Rover community at last has expert service, parts supply, and specialist knowledge from mechanics who take pride in their work, and don’t expect you to pay through the nose for it. What a relief and a real pleasure to get my Land Rovers serviced here.
These guys are awesome. Half the price and twice the quality of any dealer. Best of all, they’re trustworthy – because you know they have ‘skin in the game’ of making customers want to come back again and again. They fixed my problems quickly & efficiently, sourced some well-priced parts (always important with a Land Rover!) and I’ll be going back again. The workshops and waiting area are clean & well laid out, and the staff are very professional. I have no connection with them, I just think they’re great.
If you drive a Rover of any flavour, you’re going to want to get to know Greg and Scott at Shore St. Automotive. I’d just had an oil change performed on my LR3 at one of those drive-in places. Of course, 2km away from the oil change shop, the check engine light came on. A friend had told me about Shore St. just two days previously – claimed they were fantastic, so I decided to stop in. What a great shop! It’s small and cozy and very clean… but what’s more important Scott and Greg exude that kind of “we can help” confidence you really want to find when you’re handing over a vehicle as finicky as a Land Rover. They worked their tails off non-stop, until they’d tracked down the Gremlin, and had me on my way. Best of all – NO STICKER SHOCK! As you know, simply asking somebody to look at a Land Rover results in a bill that can only be described as astronomical… not here. My problem wasn’t a simple one to solve – it took almost as many detective skills to track down in addition to mechanical knowledge to fix and I was expecting a bill at least 3 times higher than what I was charged. Finally… somewhere to get a Land Rover fixed in Ottawa where you don’t start worrying if you can pay your mortgage this month.Clean, friendly, knowledgeable and affordable. What more do you want in a Automotive Service site. My friend who recommended them deserves a beer!
Had an LR4 for 3 years and only just started using Shore St. These guys have done 2 jobs for me and both times kept me fully updated with what they were doing. As one was the timing chain which was a nasty big job, other smaller parts needed replacing. I had the confidence that all was done at a very reasonable price and along with that these mechanics are highly skilled and experienced with LR’s. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and certainly pleased that I discovered them. If you are searching for personable and affordable mechanics you will prove Shore St Auto to be just that.
Greg and Scott provide excellent professional service. Though they may specialize in Land Rovers and Jaguars, they are go-to mechanics for any make and model of car. We have taken our Nissan Versa there for several issues and we have been totally pleased with the quality of service, the turn-around time, and the cost. Highly recommended
Scott and Greg of Shore St. Automotive provided very courteous, efficient and honest service. My 11 year old lr3 is just about to tick over 200,000 km and it has never run better thanks to their expertise.
