Expert Brake Repair Service in Kitchener, Ontario at DG’s Pro Tech

At DG’s Pro Tech in Kitchener, Ontario, we understand the importance of having a reliable and efficient brake system. We’re here to ensure your vehicle’s brakes are in top-notch condition. If you’re experiencing issues with your brake pads or any other brake components, visit DG’s. Our team is ready to provide the expert care your vehicle deserves.

About the Brake System

The brake system in your vehicle is a crucial safety component that plays a fundamental role in your daily driving experience. It comprises various parts, including brake pads, brake rotors (or drums), brake pedals, brake shoes, the parking brake, and brake fluid. Understanding how these components work together is essential for maintaining your vehicle’s overall performance and safety.

Brake Pads and Brake Rotors (or Drums)

Brake pads are essential for slowing down or stopping your vehicle. When you press the brake pedal, brake pads are pressed against the brake rotor (or drum) to generate the necessary friction to stop the wheels from turning.

Over time, brake pads wear down. Monitoring their condition is crucial to ensure they are replaced before they become too thin. A professional brake service will assess the condition of your brake pads and rotors (or drums) to determine if replacement or resurfacing is needed.

Brake Pedal and Brake Shoes

The brake pedal is your direct connection to the brake system. When you apply pressure to the pedal, it triggers a series of actions that result in the slowing or stopping of your vehicle.

Brake shoes are another crucial component typically found in drum brake systems. They work similarly to brake pads but press against the inside of the brake drum. Regular inspections of the brake pedal and shoes are essential for a responsive brake system.

Importance of Well-Maintained Brakes

Maintaining a well-functioning brake system is not just a matter of convenience; it’s a matter of safety. A properly functioning brake system can mean the difference between a safe stop and a potential accident. Regular brake service and inspections ensure that your brakes perform optimally, providing you with peace of mind on the road.

What Happens During a Professional Brake Service

When you bring your vehicle to DG’s Pro Tech for a professional brake service, you can expect a comprehensive inspection and maintenance process. Our skilled technicians will:

  • Inspect all brake components, including brake pads, rotors (or drums), brake shoes, and brake fluid.
  • Check for any signs of wear, damage, or uneven brake pad wear.
  • Measure the thickness of the brake pads and determine if they need replacement.
  • Examine the condition of the brake rotors (or drums) and resurface or replace them if necessary.
  • Assess the brake fluid level and quality, ensuring it’s within the manufacturer’s recommended specifications.
  • Inspect the parking brake for proper functionality.

No better ford diesel tech out there hands down

Jarret Marx Feb 2, 2024

Highly recommend DG's if you're looking for a cost effective and down to earth mechanic. Both Dustin and Tyson are fantastic; super informative, and friendly. I finally don't feel like I'm getting screwed over when I visit the mechanic. These guys know what they're doing.

Helen Wiebe Jan 1, 2024

Highly recommend!!! My car broke down when I was in Listowel, I was 1 hr away from home. A stressful situation was eased when DG’s Pro Tech kindly and quickly replaced my starter in just a couple of hours. They were friendly, professional and explained everything. I am very grateful to have found a helpful and trustworthy auto repair shop! A pleasure to deal with!!!

Amanda McKenzie Dec 12, 2023

Dg’s does a great job! They are always quick and the jobs are done right! I would highly recommend Dusty and his team!

Neil Anstett Nov 11, 2023

Everyone at Dg’s is very professional and customer service oriented. They listened to what we were hoping to accomplish with our duramax and delivered 100%. We are extremely happy with the results! Thanks guys!

Peter.Angela Koobs Oct 10, 2023

We just used DG's Pro Tech to install a factory prep package into a brand new 2023 Ram 2500. Dustin and Eva were great to work with. Very prompt with responses and were able to schedule us in a timely manner. I would recommend DG's to anyone searching for automotive repairs.

Dillan Wightman May 5, 2023

This review has to do with their Social Media customer engagement, specifically their YouTube Channel and the information they provide to their viewers. The fact that Dustin can explain things in simple terms, makes him and his team experts. Their social media content is engaging and informative & top notch. While I reside in Alberta, I follow and engage in their platforms and understand my Power Stroke 6.0 a lot better. If I was local, I would 100% be stepping foot inside to get work done! - Jeff

Corradetti Motorsports May 5, 2023

Staff is super friendly, very knowledgeable and very easy to deal with. They fixed my issues and alerted me on other issues I didn’t know I had some more pressing and some that can wait. No pressure from their team at all and was a pleasure to deal with. I’ll be back!

I recently had my ford in for DGs bulletproofing and a few extras I requested and I will say, from the quote right to the time of picking my truck up the entire process was one of the most positive I’ve had at any shop. The guys at Dg’s are not only nice to work with but they’re very knowledgeable, thorough and the workmanship is second to none. I will definitely be a returning customer and would recommend this shop to anyone. Don’t wait any longer, take your truck down to dg’s and get it fixed right, the first time!

What a amazing crew at DG's Pro Tech, they helped me diagnose a transmission leak on my pickup, they found the leak and repaired it in respectable timely manner. I am satisfied with the service they supplied. I also felt very welcomed inside the shop for first time. I am very happy that I took my truck to DG's pro tech! Definitely my go to shop for my ole duramax ! Thank you again guys , 10/10 would recommend to anyone that needs a shop to work on your pickup! Want to say thanks to Noah and Dustin for taking care of my truck. Also want to say very professional shop and very good pricing too. Also live a hour and half away from DG's pro tech but worth the drive and hard to trust shops around me locally so I go to DG's Pro Tech ! Cheers !
