ADAS, or advanced driver assistance systems, are an increasingly common feature with modern cars. These systems use a range of sensors and cameras to make your driving easier and safer, by warning you of hazards and braking in emergencies. Some will even monitor your alertness if you’re becoming too drowsy to drive.
If your car has any sort of smart system, even reversing sensors or cruise control, then you have an advanced driver assistance system.
If your ADAS becomes less accurate – after a small collision or body work done to the car – it could present a significant hazard to you or anyone driving your vehicle. It’s important that when it comes time for an ADAS calibration, you only trust it to the experts.
Your ADAS experts
As part of the Bosch Car Service Network, the team at Great Lakes Auto Centre have the knowledge, equipment and experience that you need to ensure your ADAS is calibrated safely. ADAS calibration equipment, such as the Bosch DAS3000, allow us to precisely calibrate the sensors around your vehicle, giving you peace of mind.
Any ADAS alignment you receive from Great Lakes Auto Centre will not void your manufacturer’s warranty. And, like all of our standard car services, it is covered under the Bosch Nationwide Guarantee.
How to know if your ADAS needs calibrating
An ADAS calibration is not a standard servicing procedure, meaning your mechanic likely won’t run one for you during a regular service. Because of this, it’s important to know when to bring your vehicle to our expert team for an advanced driver assistance systems calibration test, so you can trust your vehicle is keeping you safe on the road.
You should bring your vehicle in for an ADAS calibration after your car experiences any structural damage or change to its body. This includes:
- Any body modifications or additions, such as installing a tow or bull bar
- Any damage after a collision or accident, including just to the windscreen
- After a wheel alignment, suspension repair or tyre upgrade/change
If you have any concerns or questions or want to find out the ADAS calibration cost for your vehicle, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team at (02) 6555 6844, or fill in our online contact form.
