From our family to yours…
Wishing you all wonderful holidays and a joyful winter, thank you for your patronage!
See you soon!
Tire Rebates are back!
Winter Tires can save your life!
Did you know winter tires can reduce braking distances by up to 25%? That’s because they offer a better grip in cold temperatures and on wet, icy and snow covered surfaces, and a greater ability to channel away water and snow. We’ll help you select the right tires for your vehicle and find you the best rebate on them. Hurry while supplies last!

Give 'em something they will use!
Dunrobin dollars and gift certificates are here! A great idea for that special car owner in your life. No expiry, and no limit!
Starting at $25
Let us give you a brake...
A brake check that is.
Summer was an extra busy time for your brakes, subjecting them to extreme temperatures, friction pressure and wear and tear. It’s important to check your brakes regularly.
Use less gas...
Extend the life of your tires, improve fuel economy and drive safer.
Repeatedly driving over pot holes causes alignment problems. An alignment could save you hundreds of dollars on replacing tires due to premature wear. Book now!
For your winter trip
Picture a frustrated family waiting for a tow truck on the side of a snow-covered highway. If you’ve let your maintenance routine slide, it’s not too late. Before your next holiday, gain added confidence with a pre-trip inspection.
Buying another car?
Consider a pre-purchase inspection!
Learn of any existing conditions and possible future issues before they become your problem. You’ll either feel more confident that you’re making a great investment or discover a few hidden conditions giving you leverage with price negotiations.
Is rust proofing worth the cost?
Probably not in Florida...
But in West Carleton definitely. Your car is assaulted by gravel, ice and salt; chipping provides exposure, and resulting corrosion will require hundreds of dollars to repair.

A trustworthy resource
Harold Lavigne opened Dunrobin Auto in 1992. Following a long career working in dealerships, Harold’s goal was to provide an environment that would allow him to offer mechanic services everyone could trust. He took great pride in his philosophy, ensuring that customers understood the repairs that were needed and recommending only what was necessary.
In Harold’s memory and with his legacy as guidance, his family and friends continue to provide the same great level of service Dunrobin Auto has always strived for. His dream is being kept alive as we provide honest, quality service at fair prices and with big smiles on our faces. more

The Power Of Preventative Maintenance
Preventative maintenance is having worn parts discovered and replaced before they cause a total system breakdown. Inspections are done at your convenience and at predictable cost. Without servicing, breakdowns are inevitable, inconvenient and expensive! Call us and let’s talk about saving money.
Maintenance made easy
Owner’s manuals are boring and confusing – we’re here to make it easy. Just choose the season and book your service. Maintaining a car in good condition will keep it safe, let you drive it for a long time, and someday sell it more easily for a better price.
Click here for our easy-peasy seasonal service guide.
Brake maintenance saves you money
At Dunrobin Auto we recommend a brake service twice per year. Each Spring it is best to clean and lube caliper slides, remove rust and salt build up. In Fall, all brake components require cleaning and lubrication after being subjected to the dry, hot summer. We’re confident you’ll find this a much cheaper alternative to replacing pads, rotors and possibly calipers on a regular basis.
We always want to hear from you. Need a ride? Need your car fixed on the weekend?
