DC motors was recommended to me by a friend. I was very happy with the way that I was treated; Derick made me feel like a valued customer by explaining the problem with my vehicle and what they would do to repair it. He was able to zero into the issue while other mechanics were not clear on the source of the problem. His fee was very reasonable and I will certainly go back to DC motors."

Derek and his crew were highly recommended to me by a friend (as all good mechanics should be) and they’ve more than earned my recommendation to others. Honest, careful and thorough – you can trust them to do great work at a fair price."

A good friend of mine recommended Derek and his company to me. Derek is great!! He is honest and trustworthy in a notoriously untrustworthy industry. Derek always finished the job on time and is always looking for ways to save you money without compromising quality. I highly recommend this place and Derek."

Derek at DC Motorworks has been our family mechanic for 16 years now. He is super honest, rates are reasonable and he gives you a timeline when things need to be done next. If things don’t need to be done now, he’ll tell you. He won’t gouge you for cash like other mechanics. That’s honesty and integrity there, my friends. He was recommended by a friend of mine and now I recommend him to all my friends and family. His crew is super talented as well and the courtesy cars are a nice addition, if you need them."

I took my Acura EL in for timing belt and water pump replacement. DC Motortworks have a continual special on for Honda Civics which is half the price we could find anywhere else and since the Acura and Civic have the same engine The offer was made available to us.
I’m a big believer in the phrase “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!” So I was diligent in doing my home work. Reviews were all exceptional and the parts DC use are top of the line. Making an appointment was simple, communication was painless…. no answering machine, a real knowledgeable person. The work was done on time and the old parts were available for me to see. I’m sure glad I took the time to bring my car in from Tsawwassen to get it done here.
The icing on the cake; there was a little oil leaking from the oil pump which is close to the water pump. Derek Chu, the owner, could have told me it needed fixing, I could see where the oil had sprayed on the engine and frame. Instead, he told me it was probably not worth worrying about, he wiped down the engine and told me to keep an eye on the oil levels and signs of the leak worsening.
When a mechanic tells me I don’t need to do work I was prepared to pay for he earns my trust.

My Sliding passenger door for my Honda Odyssey was not closing properly,
which was causing an inconvenience for my family. I had initially called HONDA to get a price quote and was quoted $85 for the initial diagnostic charge plus $125 per hour to fix the door problem, which they estimate it will probably take 2 hours. This does not include parts yet.
I was scared away from the price and decided that maybe i should hold off on fixing the door. I decided to call Derek to see if this is something He could fix, since i thought he only handles automotive issues and not mechanical issue with vehicles. To my surprise, he took a look and determined he was able to fix it.
He was able to fix this Door issue and it now closes normally and my family is happy again. I was happy as well b/c I was able to fix the issue for under $200, including the parts.
I highly recommend his services for your automotive needs as he has display honest and integrity and his shop rates are very reasonable."
