Expert Car Service with Professional Equipment
Visit Gympie car service Ultimate Automotive for full safety stop
check. When there is no other way to test steering, brakes and
suspension in it’s actual operation, only a visual check can be carried
"We don’t just check to see if the brakes look okay. We work out how well they actually work," says Darryl. A full check on the PlateTronic test track will allow you to drive away with a full printed results statement, showing how everything that makes your car safe is working.
The timing, too, is just right for people wanting to make sure their vehicles are as safe as possible in the lead-up to happy, but potentially dangerous holiday season. If you live a little out of town, your big problem when getting your car serviced or repaired is what to do while you are waiting. It’s not such a problem if you still have a car. That’s why Ultimate Automotive have loan or courtesy cars for you to borrow, while they fix yours.
The Platetronic Ultima Deluxe Safe-T-Stop inspection and test machine launch at Ultimate Automotive was covered by Classic Hits, the local radio station for Noosa, Cooloola and Maroochy.
you bring in your car to Ultimate Automotive, our mechanics will
inspect it on our PlateTronic ramp, testing the actual function of
brakes (including handbrake), shock absorbers, weight distribution and
wheel alignment (both front and rear).
"There’s just no other way to do most of these tests. If we have a look the old fashioned way, we can see what things look like, but that’s all. We can check the brake lines, the adjustment. We might even push in the piston and see how it feels, but you can’t really tell how well it works," explains Darryl. "With this machine, it all changes. We can do, in a few minutes, a comprehensive brake, steering and suspension test as well as all the other normal workshop services. The sensors in the machine actually tell from the wheel pressure and the direction of any sideways movement how the brakes and undercarriage are functioning. We also do roadworthy tests and, in many cases, it might be well worth bringing in a car you are looking at and having it’s actual safety performance checked before you part with the money."
