When it comes to the safety of your vehicle, Great Lakes Auto Centre is known for going that extra mile. That’s why our workshop uses SafeTStop, a powerful tool that gives us a full diagnostic on brakes, suspension and many possible hazards, getting you back on the road with peace of mind.SafeTStop is a plate brake tester system that’s able to test brakes, wheel alignment and suspension in less than a minute. The full report includes intricate details such as potential brake imbalances, the condition of the shock absorbers and the alignment of both wheel axles.

Great Lakes Auto centre is proud to have SafeTStop as part of our workshop, as it provides a safer and more thorough diagnostic of your vehicle than manual testing, gives us more accurate results and lets you drive away with a full report on your vehicle’s performance.

Read more about some of the elements SafeTStop checks in your vehicle:

YOUR CAR’S BRAKING PERFORMANCE :

Measures individual wheels brake force, showing left to right imbalance and front to rear distribution.

  • Checks that your car stops effectively.
  • Highlights possible braking deficiencies.
  • Braking deficiencies are things such as leaking master cylinders, seized callipers, leaks, collapsed or blocked brake hoses, and faulty proportioning valves.
  • Vehicles with braking deficiencies in most cases still stop – but will require a longer distance and may not stop in a straight line.

THE ALIGNMENT OF YOUR VEHICLE WHEELS :

The correct amount of toe-in or out on your car’s wheels is very important to your car’s on-road performance.

  • Affecting tread wear and the life of your tyres.
  • Vehicle straight line drivability.
  • Need for a full alignment.

SHOCK ABSORBER CONDITION :

Worn shock absorbers reduce braking efficiency.

  • Resulting in longer stopping distances.
  • Increased risk of skidding in the wet.
  • Less control when cornering.
  • Increased wear on tyres and suspension components

WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION:

Shows weight distribution, as well as total weight of your vehicle.

  • The gross weight of a vehicle affects how the vehicle performs on the road.
  • Checks the weight imbalance after fitting heavy accessories such as retro trays or bullbars etc.

ILLUSTRATED ON AN EASY TO READ REPORT:

On completion of the test, a report is produced which clearly indicates the results on an easy to read sheet.
