Vehicle Inspections

edmonton-auto-repair-shop-gord-josh-bestchoiceYour vehicle is the most important (expensive) investment you have after living accommodations. They are a complex yet convenient method of transporting your loved ones and self to wherever you wish to go. Therefor when purchasing a vehicle, you’ll want to ensure that the one you desire is safe, has been maintained, and will last for your needs to be fulfilled. Best Choice Automotive provides several types of automotive inspections, including peace of mind pre-purchase auto inspections, out of province auto inspections, commercial vehicle inspections, and preventative maintenance inspections for many kilometers of worry free driving.

Brakes

Brakes are one of the most important components of your car, they are engineered to perform under all conditions, and to stop you in the shortest, safest distance possible. The modern car’s brake system incorporates anti-lock brake systems, traction control, and even anti-skid control in some cars. All these systems are integrated and controlled by computers, solenoids and pumps, which receive their information from various sensors within the brake system. Best Choice Automotive can inspect your brakes (brake pads, rotors, hydraulic systems), as well as  test and repair these systems. We can install scanners (computers), test and diagnose the electronic components in the brake system, and repair as required to keep you stopping safely every time.

Alignments

south-edmonton-automotive-wheel-alignmentTire wear and steering ability on the pothole and rutted roads we drive today, along with the potential to rub or slide into a curb, can seriously compromise a front end. There are hydraulic, mechanical and rubber encased components that all have to be sealed tight, and precisely aligned to ensure safe steering and minimal tire wear. With the Hunter Hawkeye Elite alignment system (*link opens with music), Best Choice Automotive can inspect, repair, and align your steering system with the most up to date equipment available.

Steering & Suspension

The steering and suspension system on the modern car is as varied from car to car as the models of cars themselves. They can range from a simple coil and leaf spring suspension, to an all-computer controlled air ride system. Shocks can change the ride and control with the flick of a switch. With today’s conditions of the roads (potholes, ruts, cracks) accidentally rubbing (sliding) into a curb can affect your suspension. Shocks and struts can leak over time, causing a soft springy ride, which can result a the loss of steering control. Coil springs and leaf springs can break, front steering components can wear, all compromising occupant safety and accelerating tire wear. Best Choice Automotive can inspect your complete steering and suspension system and give you a full report on its condition. Let us keep you on the road safe.

Transmissions & Drivelines

Transmissions and drivelines deliver the power your engine produces to the road, effortlessly and almost unnoticeable. They contain sensors and computer systems to change the power from a spinning wheel, to the other three, to maximize traction. Front wheel and all-wheel drive systems have become more popular in today’s vehicles than ever before. These systems provide more traction in all conditions. The intricacies of these systems require the ability to diagnose, pinpoint and repair the system to continue to perform as designed.

No Starts, Hard Starts & Intermittent Starts

With proper equipment, training, factory information and data, these conditions can be found, rectified, and repaired. Communication with the vehicle’s owner is vital to ascertain the conditions in which these starting problems occur. Then duplication of condition (if possible), testing of systems, and following diagnostic flow charts, may help to determine cause and effect. No, hard, or intermittent starts can be very frustrating for a vehicle owner, but with good communication, perseverance, and patience, a vehicle owner can have the utmost trust and faith that we at Best Choice Automotive all strive to do our best to get your vehicle back to you in a timely and economical fashion.

Engines & Diagnostics

south edmonton automotive tune upsToday’s engines are a far cry from the engines of yesteryear. Every facet is computer controlled to achieve maximum fuel efficiency, deliver the power you need, and meet very stringent emission standards. Today’s motor, with a little TLC, will perform flawlessly and deliver many kilometers of trouble free driving. Regular oil changes, replacing filters (oil and Air fuel, if available) & spark plugs will go a long way to ensure they last as long as, or longer, than your car. When one of these modern marvels does have a problem, the diagnostic ability that has been engineered into them can allow us to retrieve the information that is required to repair the issue. Scanners (computers) have the ability to perform this function at Best Choice Automotive we use the most modern equipment, updated with the most recent programs available.

Cooling Systems

Older cars required thermostats that needed to be changed spring and fall, to provide the heat for passengers, and run cooler in the summer. The advent of computer controlled fans has removed the twice yearly ritual of the thermostats. To maximize fuel efficiency, engineers run the engine temperature at the highest degree possible before failure. This in turn requires radiators and cooling systems to perform as designed, to keep the engine operating in its design temperatures. Flushing old antifreeze, and keeping the mixture fresh, ensures coolant integrity. With air conditioning equipped on most cars today, air flow through the radiator is crucial. Having your external cooling system blown clean, and removal of contamination will also ensure keeping your car’s engine performing as designed. Best Choice Automotive can perform these functions to keep your cars cool.

Heating & Air Conditioning

The comfort level that today’s cars provide their occupants would have been unheard of and unachievable in the cars of just a few years ago. The ability to cool or heat the driver and their passenger with varied temperatures is getting more complex with each new model produced. The heater boxes of today’s cars contain computer controlled solenoids, switches, sensors to change the temperature, doors moved to send air to different areas of the interior, and automatic sensors to maintain a desired setting. These operations can be controlled electronically, manually (cable), or with vacuum, or even a combination of all three. Coolant integrity is key in preventing the requirement of replacing a heater core in this complex system. Best Choice Automotive can inspect, recommend, and service these systems to keep you driving in the comfort level you desire.

Mechanical Services

edmonton-auto-heating-system-ac-serviceWith the complexities of today’s modern car, the person who repairs your car has evolved from the days of a ‘grease monkey’ (due to the first cars requiring grease and oil almost every 500 miles) to a mechanic (someone who had some training and skills to repair your car) to a licensed, regulated, and institutionally educated trained Technician. An individual who invests thousands of dollars for tools to be able to fix todays automobile, working for a licensed, certified shop that has been accredited to government standards, that also invests in the latest and newest equipment, utilizes online updated daily automotive repair procedures, and installs only high quality parts… that’s quite an evolution.

Radiator Repair & Service

Exhaust Systems & Mufflerssouth edmonton automotive brake pads repair

Unless they make noise or break to the point of dragging on the ground, exhaust systems are barely given a second thought. When they leak, the poisonous gas emitted may go undetected for a long time, until temperature differences show a vapour sign. The check engine light may also come on indicating an exhaust problem that was created by a possible engine fault. Repairs may be as simple as replacing a clamp hanger, to replacing a muffler or pipe, or even expensive emissions components. Let Best Choice Automotive give your exhaust system a thorough inspection to keep you driving safely.

Intake Gaskets & Head Gaskets

With the many various combinations of overhead cam engines, the cost of replacing head gaskets properly can become a major factor in whether there is still a retained value in the vehicle to warrant a major repair cost. An intake manifold gasket that was leaking, then repaired properly before further engine damages has incurred, may give a vehicle many more kilometers of worry free driving. Due to coolant becoming more acidic as it ages, regular coolant flushes may prevent gasket failures. Correct diagnostic procedures will ensure that no unnecessary or costly repairs are performed. At Best Choice Automotive, we pride ourselves in repairing your vehicles accurately and professionally, to help keep you safely on the road.
