All machines after continuous use are going to have simple wear and tear problems, and cars are no exception. Automotive repairs are a natural part of owning a vehicle, and the right repair will keep you safe while driving and also ensure your car doesn’t cost more than it should in fuel consumption and other smaller repairs.

We’ve put together this short article showing the most common automotive repairs in Hamilton.

The Brakes

Brake repairs are the most common type of automotive repairs that mechanics come across. Brake pads tend to wear through relatively quickly because of their high use. Normally this is a low cost repair service, however, if there are problems with the brake disc, rotors and the drum, then it could be more expensive, so it’s best to get them checked regularly to avoid a shock.

An Oil Change

Oil changes are essential for any vehicle and should be carried out on a regular basis. In fact, mechanics recommend an oil change for every few thousand miles that your car has done. Regular oil changes will keep your engine in good health and also increase the resale value of your car.

Tyre check

When it comes to automotive repairs, tyres are always up there when it comes to importance. Tyres are checked for alignment, depth of the treading and leaks. While most cars today have tubeless tyres which last quite a long time, they are still prone to damage and may need replacement after a certain amount of Kms. If a mechanic suggests a tyre replacement, it may turn out to be more expensive then you had originally planned.

The Electrical Systems

Automotive Repairs also include blown fuses, bulb replacement and Air-con repairs. All these things come under the electrical systems. However, these are minor problems. If there is a more serious electrical system problem, it may take a bit longer to fix.
