Owners Lisa and Nigel Fleck are thrilled to announce new developments within the business while they commit to different projects within the community – something very important to them. SAFE-T-STOP Always on the lookout for new innovations to ensure the safety of their customers, the Flecks have introduced the new Safe-T-Stop brake, alignment and suspension technology – the first of its kind in the district. This test is an accurate and easy way to test your wheel alignment, suspension and brakes and issues a report to show what adjustments can be made to deliver you real savings on your motoring and ensure your brakes operate at peak performance. Just some of the benefits are: • Detects dangerous side to side and front-to-rear brake imbalances that can cause a vehicle to lose control • Checks drag / alignment on both front and rear axles to guarantee maximum tyre performance • Measures ride quality by testing the rebound and oscillation of the suspension, from firm to soft • Measures corner weight and acts as a weighbridge • Gives an accurate, easy to read printout of the vehicle’s performance with date/ time stamped photo proof that the test has been completed on YOUR vehicle The test report reveals not only how your vehicle is performing under every day driving conditions, but also what would happen in an emergency braking situation. The Safe-T-Stop test means the team at Jones Rd Auto will quickly have the vital information to address any defects and ensure your brakes are in tip top condition. It can mean the difference between a safe stop and an accident. Need a Professional Electrician? Call Laser Electrical Rolleston!
