Question need recomendation for good mechanic Oshawa, Pickering Ontario area

Hi,
My cousin has a 2008 Saturn Astra 200000km on it. He bought it a year ago with 150000km on it. We are thinking it's a good time to replace the timing belt as we don't know when it was last done.

I have also heard that it is a good idea to replace the idler pulley and the water pump as well.

So, any recommendations for good mechanics in the durham area of Ontario Canada? Oshawa, Whitby, Pickering, Ajax etc.
​​​​​​​* * *
Also any places to get these parts would be appreciated.



Thank you

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I've had my astra serviced at both Mills buick/GMC and at nurse chevrolet. All the saturn techs from Whitby ended up moving across the street over to Nurse when saturn shut down. Not sure if my favourite service advisor still works there, his name is Cameron and he's helped me a lot when I had issues with my car.
