At The Orange Dog Garage, we diagnose and repair all vehicles, foreign and domestic, with the latest technology, tools, and training. Our shop is known as Western New York’s premier brake specialist, and we also excel in the areas of electrical repair, timing belt service, suspension work, and alignments. If you live in the Clarence area, count on us to take care of all your automotive service needs, from the basics to the most complex repairs and everything in between.
If you live and drive in New York, you must have your vehicle inspected by a DMV approved auto repair shop or inspection center annually. In Clarence, The Orange Dog Garage is ready to perform your yearly safety and emissions inspection, and perform any necessary preventive maintenance on your vehicle to ensure your inspection goes smoothly. If you do not have your vehicle inspected, you will be fined, and/or you will not be allowed to renew your registration, so don’t wait if you’ve recently purchased a vehicle or you’re due for an inspection.
If you’re experiencing a shaky, rough ride, or you’ve had shocks installed recently, but something still seems off, stop by The Orange Dog Garage for a frontend diagnostic, and potentially a wheel alignment. Not all auto repair shops do alignments, or they simply skip this crucial last step to frontend service. Not us. We don’t cut corners, and we can handle any repair or service involving your suspension system, ensuring your vehicle is safe and comfortable.
We sell and repair a good number of tires at The Orange Dog Garage, so chances are we can offer you a great price on tires, and keep you coming back for your tire service needs. When pricing tires in the Clarence area, please give us the opportunity to meet our competitors’ prices. With our years in the business, you can count on honest, upfront advice on purchasing tires and installation as well. We won’t try to sell you unnecessary frontend work by scaring you into thinking you’ll ruin your tires without it.
Your vehicle’s computer software needs upgrades just like your personal computers at home and work. A computer module reflash can fix transmission issues, improve gas mileage, and clear false trouble codes. Automotive manufacturers are coming out with vehicle computer software updates daily, which means even the newest cars and trucks can generally benefit from a computer module reflash. Call us to see if there’s a reprogram available for your vehicle.
Our shop is proud to be known as the premier brake specialists in Western New York. With brake service, we assess the condition of your brakes, and while sometimes we do recommend a complete brake job, other times we help you prioritize repairs and get a little more life out of certain components. For example, we can machine your old rotors instead of replacing them in some cases, or if your rotors are still in good condition, we may recommend only new brake pads for the time being.
If your check engine light is on, The Orange Dog Garage has the technology and skill to properly diagnose the issue and handle any necessary repairs. A thorough check engine light diagnostic is more than simply connecting a scanner to your vehicle and pulling trouble codes. That’s because codes do not always indicate exactly what’s wrong with your car or truck. We pinpoint and repair the precise cause of warning lights and vehicle issues.
