Mrs. Sauce and I are on an epic roadtrip in our Mazda and we just lost our air conditioner. Yelp is failing us. Can anyone recommend an honest and capable repair shop in Winnipeg?

If you're a CAA member they can put you in touch with someone who won't scam you.

Are you not interested in taking it to a Mazda dealer? Not that they are guaranteed not to be scammers, of course, but there are two Mazda dealerships in Winnipeg. Crown and Gerry Gordons.

Best answer: Gerry Gordon's is notoriously bad on all fronts. Crown's maintenance guys are decent.
If you're opposed to taking it to a dealer, my buddy used to work at European guarantees on what they'd charge you, but the work should be good.

You didn't mention how old the Mazda is and what happened to the A/C. Did it just stop blowing cold air? There are inexpensive kits to refill the Freon that do not take major mechanical ability.

If it just has a freon leak, those freon refill kits are very cheap. Get the one with the air pressure sensor so you don't overfill, but it literally takes 5 minutes and will get you through the trip.

Response by poster: It's a 2009 with 38k miles on it.

It just stopped blowing cold air -- we don't know the root cause.
