Phobia Auto's Owner Steve Shares His Story.


Before I was a professional mechanic I’d work on my own things. That’s how I discovered and honed my passion and eventually decided to making it my profession. Like most customers, before I had training and education I would often question if I was doing it right and would sometimes take my vehicles to a repair shops to get advice. It’s a tough industry when it comea to trust and many  people have a phobia about taking vehicle into the mechanic. I have been on both sides and understand the stress related to auto repair. But the fact is today a “mechanic” is actually a “technician” and most have more training than those who choose other career paths, we are experts in our trade. 


Times Have Changed In The Auto Industry 


A mechanics role has changed and adapted rapidly over the last decade. Today’s vehicles aren’t what they used to be.  For comparison, think how much cell phones have changed in 20 years, cars have changed 10 times more.


Looking back to the 1970s, most passenger vehicles lasted no more than a few years and 100,000 miles (160,000 kilometres) at the high end. Back then, people traded vehicles every two to four years. In fact, odometers in the early ’70s registered 99,999 miles before going back to zero. 

Starting in the 1980s, however, the life expectancy of vehicles began to increase. this was in part due to improved quality, better warranties, proper maintenance, competition, and other factors. By the year 2000, 33% of vehicles in Canada lasted at least 15 years, and by 2017, upwards of 54% of vehicles last for at least 15 years, according to DesRosiers Automotive Consultants.

Today, the average life expectancy of a vehicle in Canada is 12.88 years, compared to 15.36 years in the U.S. I often hear “they don’t make them like they used to” and I couldn’t agree more. The make them more reliable, more efficient and longer lasting. A properly maintained vehicle today will last 500,000+km I can’t say the same for the 1970s. Today’s vehicles are made of lightweight materials, such as high-strength steel, magnesium alloys, aluminum alloys, carbon fibre, and polymer composites. Plus, improvements to the internal combustion engine and computerized technology have led to better fuel economy and overall performance.
Regular maintenance is another factor in vehicle shelf life. When motorists perform recommended maintenance (tune-ups, oil changes, tire rotation, etc.), their vehicles perform more efficiently and economically, and they last longer.

The word phobia is to fear or have an aversion to something. My drive then and now is wanting to help change the negative feelings people have about the industry I am so passionate about. I do not believe anyone should fear or feel stressed about taking a vehicle in for repairs.  I want to take the 'Phobia out of Auto Repair'  by showing customers how great their experience can be.
