Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Hi-Tech Automotive where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Hi-Tech Automotive about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Hi-Tech Automotive as soon as possible.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Hi-Tech Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
Great customer service with lots of update and keeping you informed. very fair pricing. It's nice to feel valued as well as the technicians are also speedy and cordial. Thanks again.
Very professionally operated facility. The pride that they take in their work and their shop definitely shows!
A very good place to take your car! The mechanics are very professional and know their stuff. One of them even brought me to the back to show me exactly what was wrong with my SUV. Seeing is believing! The prices are fair and the quality of work is excellent.
Prompt and accurate service, watching out for my safety and pocket book by recommending services needed to insure I get to where I am getting and eliminating early wear and tear.
Very knowledgeable. Great at communicating what the problem was with my vehicle.
I find the service at Hi-Tech to be extremely good. In fact the day after I had work done on my car I sent a friend over with his vehicle to get work done. He really likes Hi-Tech Auto as well. I also recommended Hi-Tech to a third customer you currently have for his vehicle. Keep up the great work! I'll be coming back for more work soon.
VERY IMPRESSED with my first experience at Hi Tech! They were able to DIAGNOSE AND REPAIR the problem with my SUV that my dealership could not. They provided me with an explanation of the problem as well as a very detailed estimate. I was even able to talk to my mechanic one on one. My repair was swift and I was back on the road in no time. The staff was very knowledgeable. I will definitely be returning for all my maintenance work and future repairs.
These guys are great! I've been to quite a few other shops in Winnipeg, but this was by far my best experience. The drop off was simple and they asked me the questions needed to target my issue and not waste any time. They called me quickly with an estimate of what I needed and had me back on the road the same day! Prices were reasonable and the repair was explained clearly in a way I understood. They kept me informed and that made me very happy! I would highly recommend this shop to anyone!!!
Needed a muffler repair, got in immediately and it was repaired promptly. Total cost was lower then the estimate, as they were so quick. The issues were explained very clearly and thoroughly, and all options of repair were made available. Very efficient, honest and friendly, 10/10 would recommend! I'll definitely be returning for future car needs!
I had an amazing experience at Hi-Tech thanks to the incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff. They took extra time to explain my car issues in layman's terms so that I could make an informed decision about my car repairs which I greatly appreciated. I felt no pressure at all to do the repairs they recommended. I felt they genuinely wanted what was best for me and my car. Fair pricing and you get what you pay for here. Highly recommend.
