Need new brake pads? Learn how we replace your car’s brake pads and rotors with quality parts that meet or exceed original manufacture equipment.
The brake system is the most important part of you car. Safety is always our main priority in everything we do. Your family and yourself need to have the confidence that your car will come to a perfect stop anytime and anywhere no matter the road conditions.
No compromise is ever allowed when it comes to any service we offer.
We maintain, repair, and replace your car brakes and save you money at the same time. By replacing your brake pads at regular intervals you will avoid a “metal-on-metal” condition that accelerates the need for expensive rotor replacement and/or drums change.
You need to have your car fluids checked regularly since in todays vehicles they are the lifeblood that keep a car running properly. Not inspecting your car fluids can lead to premature wear and brake downs, rendering vehicle unsafe and dangerous on the road, that can place you and your family in a unpleasant and sometimes dangerous situation in an event of a brake down.
A proper maintenance will save you from an expensive repair experience. We are going to cover four of the most important fluids.
Sadly, some might say, the winter season is back every year in our area which means you need to warm up your car in the morning before driving on those icy roads. Salt and sand mixture is used to keep your travel safe. But salt and moisture can cause major negative effects on the cars body and undercarriage. Our harsh winter is a perfect environment for rust and corrosion to form and thrive.
You need to take extra care of your car during the cold season. If you don’t you car will eventually rust which is comparable to cancer for an individual. It can be treated but it’s expensive and sometimes there’s no turning back.
Your car needs our undercarriage rust protection service before the first snowflake falls.
Regular oil changes are required to keep your car’s engine performing at its best. You’ll benefit from improved gas mileage and longer engine life.

The right car tires help you drive safely at all times in any whether conditions. They are another very important safety part on your car by supporting the weight of the car and reducing the impact from the road to only name a few functions.

You might have a problem with one of the parts that forms the suspension system if handling the car is harder and the roads feel bumpier than before.
A car suspension system has many purposes:
- It keeps the tires in contact with the road allowing a smooth ride over rough roads
- It also absorbs shocks for a better driving experience
- It also allows the car to turn corners while maintain balance
The vehicle suspension system requires careful attention and periodical inspection. Service your car in time to avoid costly repairs. We perform a detailed inspection of your car suspension and fix the small issues to prevent big ones. For instance, shock absorbers and joints are wearing parts that can be replaced inexpensively and avoid a costly suspension replacement.
Need a jump start?
If the engine runs fine after jump starting your car then more than likely you need a battery replacement. The main cause for a car breakdown is a battery failure.
A car battery is responsible for many tasks including:
- Provides starting power
- Provides the power to run electrical components
- Everything fails if your battery is not working properly
Let’s keep the air clean inside and outside your car. Exhaust systems prevent harmful fumes to be present inside your vehicle. It also helps in reducing pollutants released in the air.
A good functioning muffler and exhaust system also decreases the engine noise which means you can drive a quite running car.
In due course, certain exhaust components can break or wear out because of our rough Canadian road conditions.
