Brake Systems

    Service Overview

    Your vehicle’s brake system is very important for your safety because it allows your wheels to stop when needed. The brakes operate on a hydraulic system that begins with brake fluid located in the engine compartment. When you push the brake pedal, hydraulic pressure builds and is transferred to each wheel to push the brake shoes against the drums and the pads against the rotors. This friction slows the vehicle in proportion to the force applied to the brake pedal. Routine brake inspections and maintenance help to ensure that your vehicle’s brake system operates as designed at all times.

    Brake Fluid Flush Service

    For the best performance, your brake fluid should be flushed and replaced about every 30 months/30,000 miles or based on your vehicle manufacturer’s specifications.

    What Our Customers Say

    I had an exhaust rust out and break off my '08 Eclipse. I came in just to get a quote, but Zak quickly diagnosed what needed to be done and installed a new exhaust tip. In and out within an hour with no appointment. Would highly recommend to anybody. Welder was also very nice and professional.

    If you are looking to get the job done quickly, efficiently and professionally then you should not look any further than Alta Exhaust. I won’t lie by saying they are the best in the city, because I haven’t visited all the other shops. What can I tell you then? After my visit and experience, I certainly won’t be looking to visit any other shops in the future. To the shop owners, apologies on the late review but I had to make sure I sum up my experience the correct way. Thank you once again for the generosity and the amazing work you guys did.

    6 OUT OF 5 STARS! They are excellent in every way, saved me money with their honesty and I would strongly recommend them to everyone. They performed the work in 1/3 less time and the total cost was about 1/2 of what I expected. DETAILS: I told the gentleman at the counter what my intentions were in replacing my existing exhaust system on my Firebird, we had a look at it on a hoist, he suggested changes to my request, gave me an estimate so I made an appointment to have the work done. On the morning of the appointment they put my car on the hoist, one of the senior exhaust specialists looked at my car, we discussed my request and he suggested the same changes as the other person. He told me that there is no need for me to replace as much as I wanted because the system was in great shape and there would be no viable improvements by doing the extras I originally requested, I would lose ground clearance and possibly have oxygen sensor issues even with O2 cheaters. He said all I really needed to do is replace the muffler, the pipes to my tips and put in new tips of my choice out of their numerous choices. He performed the agreed-to work, sealed a small leak and stopped a rattle which I thought was a cat convertor but only a loose sensor. They could have charged me a whole lot more parts & labour if they wanted to but did not. They are awesome!

    Mo and Zahir (Zach) greeted me with good spirit, thoroughly explained to me the issues with my car, and offered a reasonable price to have it repaired. I recommend this business as it offers great customer service at an affordable price and timely manner. Thank you again.

    Amazing shop to work with. Feels very "mom and pop" esque. You know you're helping a local business. We had some trouble deciding which route to take so they pulled me in the shop and looked under my car with me. Amazing welding work and great time management. I received a muffler delete and two new dual tips. Took less than an hour. Even offered my girlfriend and I lunch as we were paying. Highly recommend.

    I took my truck in to have a cat back exhaust system installed, I originally tried to myself but It wasn't as plug and play as I thought. It needed to be custom fitted, so I decided to take it to Alta and I am glad I did. I told them what the issue was and they put it together for me perfectly, I am very impressed with the quality of work and how quickly it was done. I also loved that I was able to email Alta back and forth with very quick responses, they look out for you and your vehicle and provide awesome customer service.Thanks guys!!

    Zak was friendly and professional. After his mechanics took a look at my vehicle, they were able to quickly fix the problem. The fix was so simple that I was not charged. I would not hesitate to come back.

    I had an exhaust tip that I needed help to remove on my 911 (rusted loose bolt but a metal plate in the way) that I thought would need a blow torch and some heavy equipment and a large bill to boot. I visited Alta Custom Exhaust spontaneously with only about 30 minutes before having to leave, and got together with Darcy to take a look at the issue. He had told me of their rate of ~70$/half an hour and 15$ shop costs on the phone but said he'd just "take a look". Darcy was extremely friendly and allowed me to be involved in his process and he was able to remove the exhaust by using a wedge to tighten and gain leverage on the clamp that the loose rusted bolt couldn't hold. Another shop technician was then able to remove the metal plate extremely cleanly using a cutter. Being a Porsche, I had expected to pay 300-500$ and a lot more time, but Alta Custom Exhaust was able to do this job for me in 30 minutes for a bill under $100, with very little heads up. Their work was extremely appreciated and I highly recommend these guys. They're down to earth, professional, transparent, and an incredible value! Thanks Darcy!

    Highly recommended! If I could give a 6 star rating I would without a doubt. Very friendly, great prices and surprisingly genuine. Zak helped me out in picking out an affordable exhaust for my car. They were not pushy and did not try to upsale. The service was very quick and I am very willing to go back for any work I may have in the future. If you need a mechanic you feel like you can trust, definitely give this place a try and you won't be dissatisfied. Thanks!

    Best place anywhere to get work done HANDS DOWN!I have a 2007 f150. They've done a true dual exhaust with X-pipe for me. And a 6" suspension lift and leaf springs. Great service. Great prices. SUPERB QUALITY WORKMANSHIP! AND REAL HONESTY!! Which is hard to find. They make you feel like a friend or family. You're not JUST another customer

    Been here a number of times. Always reasonable, easy to deal with, straight forward, and honest. They've had plenty of chances to screw me over by parting out the solution, but have never had that happen.This place has that small shop feel where you get good responses from the guys that actually work on the vehicle. Might not always like the answer because repairs can be expensive, but these guys have been on the ball every time I've been there.Much better than the dealer shops I've dealt with.

    This a goto shop for me and friends. Decent prices. Great turn around time. Even without an appointment this shop helped me out when my exhaust hanger broke. They also do mechanical work on cars. Give them a try. Or atleast a call

    Walked in having heard great things about this shop and left with a great impression. I wasn’t quite sure what sound I wanted on my truck but they were very transparent and open about allowing me into the shop to hear the sound of different mufflers before it was installed. Once I decided on what I wanted the service was really quick and great and the prices are competitive. Would recommend to a friend!

    Amazing customer service! I went in for a quote on a repair for my muffler and they came back with a price a third of what a different place was going to charge me. They showed me what needed to be done and explained how they were going to fix it and it was done in very little time. I will be recommending this place to all my friends and family

    I had Alta do a cat delete and muffler delete on my 2017 Chevy Cruze 3 months ago. They did a great job, welds are nicely done and everything was done in about 20 minutes. Zak did a great job going over options with me. My car sounds awesome and the price was exactly what I expected.

    Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. Superfantastic place to get some exhaust work done. Got a muffler put on and they had to cut off the old one and weld on the new one and make a new tail pipe and customize the muffler bracket for under 190.00$ and they are really fast. Highly recommend this place. Friendly staff and nice air conditioning in the waiting room. Thank you guys.And very honest too.

    Excellent work, great staff, very trustworthy. I’ve been on a couple times now and they always do more than I ask for less than I have planned on paying. I brought my older Jaguar xj6 there after everyone I brought it too over quoted me because of the name on the trunk. They replace and custom bended me exhaust that fixed my problem and saved me 800$ compared to other shops. Highly recommend them.

    Went from a single 3" to a 2.5" catless true dual exhaust/ x2 tips /x2 super 44 mufflers for a little over a g note. Clean welds, tips were evenly placed and stuck out the same distance. Only took 2 hours ! Highly recommend
