About Reliable
Reliable Automotive has been serving Sault Ste. Marie for 75 years and will continue to serve the Sault and area as a locally owned and operated family business. As a full-service automotive repair & maintenance station, we have a combined 88 years of employee experience as of 2019.  As the new owner, I congratulate Michael Fera on his retirement and thank him for his 42 years of service to the people of Sault Ste. Marie and the surrounding area. 
 
We continue our training to stay up to date with the latest technology in diagnostics, repairs, and maintenance for all makes and models at a dealership level. Yes! We can do what the dealerships do. I am very confident in our team and look forward to serving the Sault and surrounding area for many years to come.
