Our History

A proud tradition; a focus on Europe

In 1960, Frank Scheffer saw the need in Winnipeg for an automotive repair shop that specialized in servicing European makes, particularly Volkswagen.

He opened Frank Motors and quickly earned a reputation for excellence and superior client service. Owners of European cars flocked to Frank for expert repair work. Frank Motors became known for its deep understanding of European engines and parts. And drivers knew that Frank Motors was the place to go to maintain the high performance of their European cars.

Over the years, Frank Motors started to take care of all makes and models – applying the same rigour, pride, and attention to detail to all cars.

In 1980, Frank’s son, Dieter Scheffer, took the reins with the same energy, values, and passion that characterized his father’s career.

And today – Frank Motors is proud to return to its roots with a renewed emphasis on European makes like Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Smart, Sprinter, Fiat, and more.

We celebrate European automotive engineering; and we celebrate the drivers who choose quality and performance.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I recently had some substantial repairs to my vehicle and I was really impressed by how they did their best to save me as much money as they could. Another very important aspect of the service is they keep me informed of what they are doing and I always feel like the best plan of attack is arrived at in a mutual fashion. I trust these guys with my vehicle and my wife's vehicle. It gives me confidence to know my vehicles are well maintained.
