When it comes to your car, the make or model doesn't really matter — at Auto Cité, we've seen it all. For most people, car repairs can be a real pain — they are frustrating, time-consuming and often an inconvenience. But for us at Auto Cité, it's different.
We truly love cars. We love everything that has to do with cars - especially fixing them.
When it comes to mechanics, we do A to Z. We provide exceptional service at honest rates, and we will leave your vehicle in better shape than it was before it needed fixing.
Are you shopping for a new vehicle, or trying to sell one that you already own? There may be several reasons why you need a vehicle inspection — but regardless, you need the peace of mind that it's completely reliable. After all, hidden problems can lead to big consequences.
Our qualified technicians will take their time to go over all of the mechanics (and bells and whistles) of the vehicle, so we can provide a full vehicle inspection report for you. This will help you make an informed decision and know exactly what the value of the car is that you're looking at.
If we find any underlying concerns, we can help quote out those fixes. That way, you’ll know whether that's something you want to take on.
Some inspections we do:
There's no avoiding maintenance when it comes to a vehicle. It all comes down to its natural wear and tear.
While vehicle maintenance is inevitable, the cost and quality can vary depending on the shop you decide to take your vehicle to. At Auto Cité, we offer high-quality, affordable maintenance services that will help maintain the lifespan of your vehicle. That way, you won't need to be in the shop as often.
Some routine maintenance that you may need to consider is:
Air filter checks
Brake pad replacements
Windshield wiper replacement
Fuel filter changes
Spark plug replacement
Our maintenance services can be done quickly, cost-effectively, and at your convenience.
Are you in desperate need of a car repair in Gatineau? Vehicle repairs can quickly add up in time and money. We don't want you to have to spend hundreds on a rental vehicle and additional hundreds on repair costs. We understand that the cost of repairing vehicles can quickly add up, which is why we make a list of necessary repairs and what can just be monitored for the interim.
If your vehicle is acting up (new noise or smell), it may be better to get it looked at. We are happy to take a look at your vehicle at Auto Cité. If any repairs are required, we will remain transparent in our cost and time it'll take to complete the repair.
Common repairs that may need to be done include:
Timing belt replacement
Air conditioning repair
That dreaded engine light has come on again, hasn't it? Whether it came on as you were driving to work or as you pulled into your driveway, chances are you followed it with a harsh eye roll. Those things are annoying — and we get it. Now you're scrambling to find the time to book your car into the shop, as well as wondering what in the world could be wrong with it (and how much it'll cost you).
At Auto Cité, we want to make this as quick and painless as possible for you.
Bring your vehicle into our shop and we’ll have one of our mechanics run an engine diagnostics on it. This will help us (and you) understand exactly what the issue is. From there, we can help provide a quote and help explain how serious the problem really is.
Keep your car running smoothly with frequent oil changes. Read your owner's manual for the proper oil change recommendations for the make and model of your vehicle.
If you can't find it, our rule of thumb is between every three months and 3000 miles and seven months and 7000 miles. The type of oil you need will depend largely on the make and model of your vehicle, but our technicians will be happy to help you out with that upon your arrival.
Proper tires are necessary for our Canadian climate and it is imperative to have sturdy tires on the winter roads. Even a small loss in pressure can affect the overall driveability of your vehicle. We recommend rotating your tires regularly and if you suspect a slow leak in your tire, it's essential that you get it patched as soon as possible.
We are also more than happy to help you choose new tires for your vehicle when you're ready to replace your existing ones. Depending on your driving habits, driving experience and price range, we can recommend tires that will make you feel comfortable and in-control on the road.
Auto Cité provides full-service tire assistance, from tire rotation to patching to tire sales. Regardless of what you need, our trained team is happy to help.
