“We may be the only repair shop on the planet that does not want to see your car show up on a tow truck…”

Our vision and mission

At OttoStadt, our goal is to ensure that your vehicle is safe and reliable at all times. We firmly believe that you should never be surprised by a repair or maintenance that your vehicle may require. We believe in maintaining a vehicle, not repairing it. Our years of experience has shown
us that a diligently maintained vehicle will provide many years of trouble free ownership. Almost all “breakdowns” can be avoided with a regular Vehicle Health Check of your vehicle’s condition and following a regular service schedule.

It is for this reason that we have developed our OttoStadt maintenance program to help you keep track of needed maintenance with reminders so you don’t have to worry about it . Our Vehicle Health Check allows you to plan ahead for repairs and avoid unnecessary breakdowns and not be surprised by car repairs. Think of us as a Concierge service for your car maintenance.

We may be the only garage on the planet that does not want to see your car show up on a tow truck.


How OttoStadt came into being


David’s automotive history began at a Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche dealer in 1999. For the following decade he gained experience in both independent and dealership environments. In 2010, David rented his first commercial space in Aylmer and OttoStadt officially started welcoming customers in September. 10 months later, he hired his first employee and the company grew from there.

In 2018 he was fortunate enough to be able to purchase the Jacques Auto building at 34 Gatineau Avenue in the Touraine district of Gatineau just minutes from the Alonzo Bridge and the King Edward Bridge to Ottawa. He devoted a lot of resources to renovate, modernize and expand the building to offer all automotive repair services under one roof; from air conditioning repair, electrical and warning light diagnosis, to wheels, tires and
wheel alignment.

Today, the company has eight full-time employees (View our team) and a fleet of six new courtesy vehicles. OttoStadt has the same software, manufacturer repair/parts information and diagnostic equipment as your BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes, Mini and Porsche dealership, which is why we like to say that we offer Dealer level expertise and equipment
with the quality of service you deserve.
