Looking for a Subaru mechanic on the prairies (manitoba, saskatchewan)

Finding it near impossible to find a garage even willing to look at my Subaru which is having overheating issues and a possible HG leak. Located near Yorkton, SK but willing to drive to a good mecanic who has experience on Subarus (perhaps in Brandon or Regina?)
Can someone recommend a shop for me? Thanks

I too am in to find out a good place to go. I'm in Winnipeg and would also drive to a garage. I was quoted 1700.00$ for both head gaskets on my 2000 OBW. Dang near fell over when I heard the price.

I will be following this thread in case, heaven forbid, my OB has problems. I am driving to Winnipeg next week. The map does not show too many cities between northern Minnesota USA and Winnipeg.

My car's name is Honey and I love her.

I'm afraid your are embarking on a journey with no end. Yes there will be rumors along the way of the fabled shop you seek. You may even succeed in gaining enough confidence to hand over your gold to one or two but the die has already been cast. You will lose your gold, your faith, and will end up with a sway backed steed still in need of care.

I could tell of my journey if you wish but it is a tale of woe that should not be heard by one with hope in their hearts.

I see you are in St. B. Did you try Degagne Motors?
