Changing your vehicle's oil is essential. Performing oil changes regularly keeps your engine in good condition. Also, when this maintenance is done by one of our professional technicians, a visual inspection will also be done to detect problems before they become serious and prevent premature engine wear.
When they change the oil, technicians drain the dirt- and particle-filled oil from the car's crankcase. Then, they’ll change your oil filter before adding new oil that’s appropriate for your car, as established by the manufacturer. We use brand-name oils exclusively.
We recommend you change the engine oil regularly and change the oil filter every time you do so. Oil change intervals vary depending on your vehicle and the manufacturer's standards. You should follow the oil change schedule to ensure your vehicle’s engine operates normally and properly.
It’s essential to perform preventive maintenance on your vehicle. Not only will it extend the life cycle of your car, but it ensures your vehicle is safe to drive. Moreover, it prevents certain failures or breakages that could lead to your vehicle being towed.
You could pay the price if you neglect to have preventive maintenance done on your car. Indeed, expensive repairs could be hard to avoid. You must perform preventive maintenance to ensure your car’s performance as well as that of all its components. In addition, doing so maintains the validity of the manufacturer's warranty.
Each type of vehicle requires specific preventive maintenance. The ideal approach is to follow your car model’s maintenance schedule. Therefore, we strongly recommend you check in with your mechanical repair shop at least two to three times a year, so that a preventive inspection can be performed to detect future problems.

Thinking about replacing your vehicle’s tires? To determine if it’s time to replace your current tires, our technicians must check their level of wear.
Tire life cycles vary from one vehicle to another. Several factors indicate whether it’s time to change your tires, such as their level of wear and manufacturing date. Canadian law stipulates that a tire worn down to 2/32 is illegal. Wear greater than 5/32 increases your risk of hydroplaning and traction loss.
With the help of our experts, you can determine when to change your tires and find the right new ones for your car. Whether they’re summer, winter or four-season tires, it’s important they be in good condition to ensure ideal road handling. Because we have a wide variety of tires, no matter the model or year of your car, we can advise you and recommend the best tire for your needs.
Your vehicle’s suspension system is made up of several components. Shock absorbers play an important role in your vehicle’s road handling by keeping your tires in contact with the ground. Shock absorbers ensure road adherence and better braking.
Therefore, it’s essential to have your shock absorbers checked as soon as you reach 80,000 km and have them inspected every year.
The coil spring is another vital component that ensures safe driving. It supports the weight of the vehicle, absorbs road shocks and keeps you steering in a straight line.
Together, these two parts keep your vehicle at a comfortable height, ensuring a safe drive. It is recommended to have your suspension system inspected annually.
It’s essential to perform routine preventive maintenance on your vehicle. In addition to extending your car’s life cycle, it ensures safe driving. It also helps prevent failures or breakdowns requiring the towing of your vehicle.
Aligning the wheels on your vehicle involves adjusting the wheel angle to prevent premature wear and reduce tire friction. This makes for a more stable, pleasant and safer drive.
Your wheels should be aligned at least once a year or every 20,000 km. You may, however, need to do it before reaching 20,000 km. If your Uni-Pro expert notices uneven wear on your tires or unstable handling on the road, it’s time to have your wheels aligned.
