Brake Repair: Keep Your Brakes in Check

When it comes to your safety, stopping your car is much more important than making it go, so an excellent braking system is non-negotiable.

Having your brakes always work ideally is crucial to ensure the safety of yourself, your passengers, and other people on the road. You should get your brakes checked regularly, and you also must take care of brake repairs as soon as possible. Regular brake repairs keep you safe from bad accidents, but that isn’t the only benefit they bring.

First, checking your brakes keeps overall repair costs down because periodically checking them gives you a chance to fix minor problems before they become more prominent. Brake pads, for example, are simple and affordable to replace. However, if you leave too much time between services, they can wear away completely. This will damage your brake discs over time and repairing them costs a lot more. On top of that, hard braking results in poor fuel economy. Having your brakes checked might save you money on gas in the long run.

Second, you improve your stopping distance significantly by keeping your brakes in check. Issues with your braking system can creep up on you slowly over time. When brake pads wear out, you might notice that your stopping distance worsens. When brakes are working optimally, stopping should be smooth every time. If you notice any difference in braking, get your car checked as soon as possible by expert mechanics.

To top it off, your regular brake repair is the perfect time to bring up any changes that you have noticed in your brakes. If you hear weird noises when you brake, it might indicate that it is time to replace the brake pads. A change in the way the brake pedal feels also could be an indicator of brake issues.

Not to mention that by checking your brakes, you might find other problems with your car that you were totally oblivious to. Let’s say your brakes are working perfectly fine, but during an inspection of your brakes, you find out that your tires are misaligned. Regular brake inspections ensure your whole vehicle is safer and that you spend less money overall.

Alexis Bennett Feb 2, 2024

Had damage to my radiator hoses on an old BMW. They fixed it well, and stayed after hours to show me that the steam coming from the radiator after the repair was leftover coolant from the initial leak and that it was all good and they were chill about it. Appreciate the care and good service on the repair

Good job

Pavel Slivka Dec 12, 2023

Great!

Bruce McLeod Dec 12, 2023

Thank goodness for Joe at Reliance ! If it wasn't for him, I would be taking the bus because he has rescued me and my s#!+box truck more times than I can count! He is never too busy to address whatever Fresh Hell is occurring with my ancient truck, and he always ensures that it is safe for my son and me to drive. As soon as I win the LottoMax, I'm going to buy an EXTREMELY expensive fancy truck, and I will only allow Joe to perform its regularly scheduled maintenance (when my butler brings it in to Reliance of course-because I'll be on a beach somewhere...)

Carie-Anne Nov 11, 2023

The guys here are welcoming and have very good knowledge about cars. Though I drive a German, Joe had the fox figured out with ease. Plus I got some aftermarket parts installed. Love it! Def my guy/ garage in Hamilton!

Honest, helpful, fast and great prices. I know little about cars and the mechanic lifted my car back up to show me in detail what was wrong visually. They helped me identify a bad safety and has been my go-to mechanic since. Highly reccommend.

Been going here for years. Honest mechanics that take the time to explain the repairs made.

Ian Apr 4, 2023

This auto shop is simply the best! I recently had them install front struts and a lower control arm on my vehicle. Beforehand, they performed a thorough inspection of my suspension, for which they charged a small fee. They then advised me on the necessary parts needed, and allowed me to purchase them on my own, which saved me money. They took my car in the morning and had it fixed the same day. Additionally, they performed a complimentary brake check and tire pressure check. I've used this shop for all of my vehicle maintenance and repair needs, including oil changes (where they allow me to bring my own oil and filter), major work such as a timing belt and water pump replacement, brake jobs, and other suspension repairs. I've never been happier with an auto shop - these guys are honest and reliable. I highly recommend them!

Wingman Courier Jul 7, 2022

Got our car towed here from CAA due to a broken spring, they were quick and courteous, I asked to replace both struts. They only replaced the one side (the drivers side) and the price was decent, fixed the issue however I would have liked to have both done. Overall, still satisfied but not entirely what I wanted at the end of the day. I'd go to them again, miscommunications happen but the service was still good.

the best automotive shop in hamilton in my opinion. i got 2 other shops that i go to and they are really good shops but zagros is even better in terms of cost and customer service. they didn't charge me labor for a window power switch, i only paid for the unit itself. also top up of power steering fluid - free! i will definitely back for maintenance. :) Edit: My review post was 4 years ago and now Zagros is Reliance Auto. Its sad that kadry left as he was a very honest guy and is very accomodating. Same with JP and was a very good mechanic, he knows instantly what's wrong with the car. And if you dont have appointments and your car needs urgent fixing, he will fix it. I wish these guys all the best! Still, Joe and one or 2 other guy are still available and brought my mazda car today. Im happy with the maint. and for the cost it increased a little bit, well everywhere now costs higher. Joe, is like the other main guy and as long as he is there, I will continue to be a customer. Reliance Auto Hamilton AKA Zagros is still the place to go for car maintenance. Thank you Joe and team!🍻 On side note, I hope Reliance wont mess up with prices or screw how the guys do their jobs.

Fantabulously quick service, even offered to drive me to work while my car was being fixed, very nice service-people. No clue if I got a good price as I am car illiterate ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I live in Toronto and work in Hamilton, so I drive every day. Today was a bit different. I almost got to work when suddenly some noise started to be heard at the rear of my car. This was at about 5pm. Worried that something bad happened and I wouldn't be able to drive back to Toronto, I called Zagros to see if they can look at my car tonight. The gentleman over the phone told me that they are about to close and that I can leave my car overnight, so they take a look at it tomorrow, but when he found out that I needed to go back to Toronto, offered to bring the car and look at it right away. After taking my car for a quick test drive, the problem was diagnosed here and then - broken shock and shock mount. The mechanic assured me not to worry and that I will be on the road in no time. He ordered the part, which arrived very quickly, and did the repair despite staying later than he was supposed to, because the shop closes at 6pm. I cannot be more thankful, my car is fixed and I got back to Toronto safely! Recommend this place for anyone who wants honest, quick, efficient and above-and-beyond customer service! Thank you!
