We understand the critical role your car’s brakes play in ensuring your safety on the road. With our team of experienced technicians and a commitment to quality brake services, we’re here to keep your vehicle’s brake system in optimal condition.

Identifying When To Get Your Car’s Brakes Checked

Your car’s brakes are a vital component, and regular brake inspections are essential to maintain their performance. Here are some key signs and symptoms that indicate your vehicle may need brake repair:

Squeaking or Squealing: If you hear a high-pitched noise when applying the brakes, it’s a clear sign that your brake pads may be worn down.

Brake Pedal Issues: A soft or spongy brake pedal, or one that goes all the way to the floor, could indicate a problem with your brake fluid or brake line.

Pulling to One Side: If your car pulls to one side when braking, it may be a sign of uneven brake pad wear or a problem with your brake callipers.

Vibration or Shuddering: When you experience vibrations or shuddering through the steering wheel while braking, it may be due to warped brake rotors.

Warning Lights: If your vehicle’s brake warning light comes on, it’s essential to have a comprehensive brake system inspection.

Don’t ignore these signs; early detection and repair can prevent more extensive and costly brake issues down the road.

Understanding The Local Influences On Your Brake System

Hamilton’s climate, road conditions, and traffic can significantly affect the wear and tear on your car’s brakes. Here’s how these factors come into play:

Climate: Hamilton experiences a range of weather conditions, from icy winters to humid summers. Such fluctuations can accelerate brake pad wear and affect brake fluid performance, making regular brake maintenance crucial.

Road Conditions: The condition of Hamilton’s roads, with potholes and rough surfaces, can put additional stress on your vehicle’s brakes. Prolonged exposure to uneven roads may lead to premature brake component wear.

Traffic: The stop-and-go traffic often encountered in Hamilton can result in increased brake usage. Frequent braking generates heat, which can wear down brake pads and affect the overall brake system’s performance.

Given these local factors, it’s essential to prioritize brake services in Hamilton to ensure your safety and the longevity of your vehicle’s brake components.

Fast, friendly, and affordable service. I took my car in for a brake replacement, and was pleasantly surprised with the price and the quick turn around time. The staff were engaging and helpful - answering all of my questions. Will definitely come back for all of my maintenance and repairs in the future 🙂.

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

Eric Solomon Dec 12, 2023

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.

josh sopko Mar 3, 2023

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!
