The leading cause of traffic accidents is brake failure.
Brake failure is nearly always preventable. Stop worrying about potential failures and enjoy peace-of-mind. Reggie's Automotive is a brake specialist. We welcome you to come in for a brake inspection.
We will check:
- Pads and shoes for wear
- Drums and rotors for wear
- Wheel cylinders and calipers for leaks
- Hydraulic lines and hoses for leaks, kinks and blockages
- Fluid in the master cylinder for level and condition
Checking your brake system regularly will often save you in the long run. Replacing worn pads before they damage the disks or drums is a modest cost. If you wait until your car sounds like a streetcar, you will likely have more extensive repairs and a higher cost.
If any work is necessary, we will give you a choice of parts. A better grade of materials (pads for example) may be one of the best bargains around. They will last longer and perform better than standard grades. You will always be in control at Reggie's Automotive and then on the road.
Did you know the main cause of failed mufflers is simply a broken clamp? And the cost of a clamp amounts to pocket change? If you're aware of this, chances are you already deal with us, because at Reggie's Automotive we believe an informed customer is a contented customer. We like to help take the mystery out of automotive repairs. Our clients really appreciate that. Besides, explaining all the "little extras" we provide is also good for business.
For example, when you bring your car in for an oil change, our technicians always check the exhaust system. Just a "little wiggle here, and a little wiggle there" to make sure everything is firm and tight. You may not even be aware, yet this simple precaution could save you hundreds of dollars in unnecessary repairs.
Those "little wiggles" pre-test the clamps. If a clamp gives out while your vehicle is in operation, it could lead to extensive exhaust system repairs. Repairs that were preventable! Like so many other things our technicians do, taking the time to check the clamps on your muffler and pipes can save you unnecessary expense.
This alone won't prevent exhaust failures, but if you do require an exhaust system, we can help with that as well. Our mufflers come with a Lifetime Warranty, of course. They also come with something extra – they come with a little wiggle, too!
Everyone from your father, to your buddies, to your bank manager, has said to change your oil regularly. Well, everyone at Reggie's Automotive will join the chorus. Your engine generates temperatures in excess of 200 degrees. Your motor oil lubricates and helps to cool your engine.
Over time motor oil loses some of its viscosity (its ability to flow). It is recommended that you change the oil in your car every 5,000 kilometers. Just call us at Reggie's Automotive. We can change your oil this time, or set up a schedule for you to regularly have your oil changed with the seasons, or each month depending on your driving habits.
Be sure to check your oil regularly. The proper fluid level is important to have your engine function at its peak efficiency.
We now also do Undercoating! Keep your vehicle like new throughout the years by undercoating it. Undercoating your car will reduce rusting from salt and other harsh road conditions.
