Our Vehicle Service Specialties

  • Repairing Brakes

    Repairing Brakes

    Connecticut's weather and road conditions do a number on brakes throughout the year. Paying attention to your brakes will keep you safe during your daily commute. What's more, properly maintained brakes will save you a lot of money on repairs in the future. Common points of failure when it comes to brakes include line leaks and stuck calipers. The good news is that brakes aren't hard to fix for a seasoned mechanic. At Duddie Automotive, we take the time to properly assess the health of brakes and perform the right repairs.


  • Preventative Maintenance

    Preventative Maintenance

    Routine preventative maintenance is one of the best investments you can make in your automobile. Truth be told, a few hundred dollars worth of preventative maintenance can save you thousands in repairs later on in life. Common preventative maintenance measures include wheel alignment, oil change service and spark plug replacement. When done properly, preventative maintenance will make any vehicle run flawlessly for decades. The team at Duddie Automotive can advise you on the perfect preventative maintenance schedule for your car or truck to ensure long-term results.


  • Wheel Alignment

    Wheel Alignment

    Proper wheel alignment is one of the most neglected aspects of car care for the average driver. The reality is that good wheel alignment will improve tire longevity and fuel economy. More importantly, proper wheel alignment will help your vehicle to steer accurately and stop quickly on any surface. When you weigh the minimal expense of quality wheel alignment against the benefits, it would be asinine to neglect this procedure. Duddie Automotive is especially well equipped to perform top-notch wheel alignment on any vehicle.


  • Water Pump Repair

    Water Pump Repair

    Despite its innocuous name, a water pump is one of the simplest and most important components in any vehicle. A failing water pump can easily destroy your engine in short order when left unattended. Fortunately, a water pump on its way out will give you some warning signs. A bad water pump will often result in coolant leaks, high engine temperatures and excessive pulley noise. If you suspect your water pump is about to quit on you, contact the professionals at Duddie without delay.


  • Alternator Repair

    Alternator Repair

    If an engine is the heart of any vehicle, the alternator is the pacemaker that ensures smooth performance. While you can generally count on an alternator to operate for years without hiccups, even the best units eventually wear out. When an alternator dies, it tends to do so suddenly with little warning. The good news is that replacing an alternator isn't that difficult if you have the proper tools and experience. Duddie can replace your old alternator in hours at an affordable price.


  • Oil Change Service

    Oil Change Service

    A routine oil change is the best thing you can do for any vehicle regardless of make, model or mileage. Old oil will definitely cause internal damage to an engine given enough time. Without an oil change at the right time, pistons and cylinders will undergo far more wear and tear than they're meant to withstand. A good oil change won't cost a lot and will deliver plenty of return on the investment. When your trusty car or truck needs an oil change, Duddie Automotive is the best shop for the job.
