Brake Service & Repairs
Your brakes are one of the most important safety features on your car, truck, SUV, crossover or minivan. Keeping your brake system is perfect working order is one of the best things you can do to keep you, your passengers, and other drivers safe. At Car Craft Automotive, we understand that is as just important that your vehicle stops as it goes. Our skilled technicians are masters of both brake service and repairs and will keep you safely on the road.
Car Craft Brake Services include replacing brakes and rotors and flushing brake fluid. Over time, your brake pads and rotors wear down and need replacement. Your pads are fitted with a metal indicator strip that will start to squeak when the pads are getting low, letting you know it is time to get to the shop. Rotors can be turned or replaced to give your pads a fresh surface and you are ready to hit the road. If needed, your brake fluid can also be flushed to assure it is providing the correct pressure for your braking system.
Are you fighting your steering wheel to keep your vehicle on the straight and narrow? Then you need a wheel alignment. Having your wheels out of alignment can cause unneeded wear and tear on your tires, brakes, and steering that if not addressed can lead to a costly repair down the road.
For Car Craft Automotive, our certified technicians will adjust the camber, caster, and toe of your front wheels to return them as close to factory specifications as possible. This will not only return your steering wheel to the correct position when driving straight but also stop any adverse wear patterns on tires and any excess wear on your braking or steering components.
Getting a new set of tires? It is always a great idea to get a front-wheel alignment to make sure you start off with everything straight as an arrow!
Having good tires is like having good shoes, they keep you safe on any surface in any weather. Having bald tires on a wet, slippery road can lead to a disaster, even if you have good brakes. You never want to be caught with no tread on your tires during one of Kelowna’s downpours or snow storms!
Car Craft Automotive can plug a tire or provide you with a choice of new tires from a long list of great brands including Goodyear, Yokohama, Pirelli, Continental, BF Goodrich, Hankook, Cooper, Sumimoto and more. No matter what you drive, whether it is a car, truck, SUV, crossover or minivan, we can help you find the right tire to fit your driving needs.
We also offer tires that fit every season and type of vehicle from a Jeep to a sports car to make sure you get the performance you expect out of your vehicle. With so many tires to choose from, it can be confusing but rest assured, we are here to help make your tire shopping quick and easy.
There is nothing worse than getting in a hot car on a hot day and your air conditioning does not work. At Car Craft Automotive, we do not want anyone to be uncomfortable just because his or her air conditioning is not working.
We offer air conditioning service, which includes diagnosing the system and recharging your refrigerant to give you nice, cold air again. Nearly every vehicle will need air conditioning service at some point so it is a good idea to have it checked every once in a while to make sure you will not ever be without it.
Your vehicle has an intricate suspension system that keeps your ride smooth and your vehicle easy to drive. Some of the components include power steering, shocks, struts, and sway bars. If any of these fail, it can make for not only poor ride quality, but also an unsafe vehicle.
Power steering is what makes your steering wheel easy to turn. If your power steering goes out, we will diagnose the problem and repair it. Driving your vehicle without power steering is difficult and causes unneeded wear and tear on the rest of your steering and suspension components.
If your car, truck, SUV, crossover or minivan has worn out shocks, struts, or sway bars, our skilled technicians will determine what the problem component is and replace it. Having working suspension parts not only gives you good ride quality, it makes your vehicle safe to drive, and at Car Craft Automotive, we want our customers to be safe and happy!
Belts & Hoses
Kelowna’s summer and winter weather is rough on your vehicle’s belts and hoses. It is always a good idea to give them a once over when you refill your washer fluid or check your oil periodically. If you notice any cracking in you belts or spongy feeling in your hoses, it is time to get to your mechanic and have them replaced.
A broken belt or hose can disable your vehicle or even lead to engine damage, so it is extremely important to pay attention to them. Checking them periodically is preventative maintenance to keep from facing costly repair down the road if something happens to fail.
At Car Craft Automotive, we go over all belts and hoses and replace anything that shows any sign of wear and tear. We want to keep you on the road as much as you want to be on the road without costly repairs!
Oil changes are one of the easiest preventative maintenance tasks to keep your vehicle in top shape. Oil is the lifeblood of your engine and without it, your engine ceases to function.
It is important to follow your manufacturer’s specifications as to when to change your oil and what type of oil to use. For example, most vehicles do not require oil changes every 3,000 miles anymore and some require all synthetic motor oil. Do you know what your vehicle’s specs are? If you do not, Car Craft Automotive does and will take care of all your oil change needs.
Along with your oil change, we will check your belts, hoses, tires and other components to be sure your car, truck, SUV, crossover, or minivan is in tiptop shape. If we see any issues, we will let you know so any small problem can be addressed before it becomes a big problem. At Car Craft Automotive, our customers always come first!
Car Craft Automotive wants all of its customers to be driving safe vehicles. We offer safety inspections that cover all the major systems of your vehicle including engine, transmission, brakes, and suspension. We also check all belts and hoses for wear and tear as well as your tires for tread depth.
If you just purchased a used car or brought your car from out of province, we offer safety inspections to allow you to get your vehicle registered in the province of Kelowna. We will check over the vehicle to insure it is in good mechanical condition as well as make sure the VIN numbers match.
If you need your vehicle checked out there is no better place to take it than Car Craft Automotive!
