Spring Break

Are you planning a road trip this coming Spring break? Here are the things you want to make sure you have in order so your trip doesn’t have any unexpected surprises.

Check tire press – Get better gas mileage as well as improved safety by ensuring your tire pressure is within proper range.

Check oil level – Nothing is more critical than having proper oil for your car.

Check coolant level – Do you notice when driving that your temperature gauge seems to go up faster than normal. It might be you don’t have enough coolant or have a leak.

Check your wipers – Are they starting to fray or when you turn them on do you notice smearing? Wiper blades are inexpensive to replace but can be a real help.

If you are due for an oil change or want a general check up, you can always book an appointment at Bruno Automotive.  Courtesy cars are available.


Is your transmission grinding, having trouble shifting gears, leaking red oil or your car is just not moving at all!  There’s a good chance your transmission needs help.

We will assist you to determine if you may be covered under your manufacturer’s warranty. If it’s an older car, we will assist you in deciding whether it’s better to fix it or perhaps it may be time for another vehicle!

Most times we can fix your transmission within your budget and get you back on the road again. We will provide you with a courtesy car while your car is being repaired.  At Bruno Automotive, we handle transmission work for all makes and models.

We are also a BCAA approved repair shop.
