Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit MasterTech Automotive in Colchester, VT 05446 today.
MasterTech Automotive has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Colchester area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by MasterTech Automotive or call us at 802-652-9991 to schedule an appointment!
Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors.

To have your car diagnosed for drivability issues, visit MasterTech Automotive in Colchester, VT 05446 today. At MasterTech Automotive, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call MasterTech Automotive today.
One of the very few places I trust in the area. Incredibly nice staffing, very fair pricing.
I've been bringing my vehicles to MasterTech for years and have been always been happy with the end results. Keith has gone out of his way to make sure that everything is just right. I certainly appreciate it!
I called Keith in a panic about my brakes not working. He immediately made me feel calm with his kind and helpful attitude. He fixed my brakes and another muffler issue while I was at work. If you are looking for amazing service and a little bit of humor go to MasterTech Auto!
Excellent customer service! I've been using master tech for a few years now. Best shop I've ever used! Keith helped me out big time by loaning me a vehicle for over 2 weeks, while my car was being fixed. Saved me a large chunk of change too! Most importantly this is the and I mean the most honest trustworthy mechanic on this planet!Big thanks to Keith & his team at Master Tech & a big warm welcome to the new kid on the block Randy she's awesome too! Love you all!
Reliable, honest and respectful - and I am truly grateful for the work done. Keith, Sam and Scott took the time to diagnose the issues and repair all that was connected to the issues at an affordable rate. Would recommend them to friends and family.
Just a fully capable local shop. Every one was friendly while I waited. Sort of reminds me of taking my car to a friend's place for it to get fixed, only the friend is a professional garage.
Great customer service and extremely fair prices. I would 100% recommend them to anyone needing automotive services.
Had the transmission on our 2005 CR-V fail on the last day of Vacation and about to head back to Massachusetts. Stopped in to see if they could help me out but they couldn?t fix it in time. They sure made the phone calls and preparations for me to be able to tow it back home for repair. Everyone at the shop was very personable and friendly. Once again, Thank you Master Tech!
I'm from CT and they got me back on the road the same day I brought it in. Not to mention dropping me off at the place I was staying while they worked on my car, and then came to pick me back up when it was all done! If I moved to VT they'd definitely become my go to mechanics.
I recently had a problem with my muffler. It was about to fall off. I went to Master Tech. They were able to take me right away. Most places are appointment only, and those can take days. I had an appointment in a couple of hours. They had Bond Auto expedite the parts. The repairs were completed in just over an hour. The techs there are very good at what they do and are extremely customer oriented. I would not use any other shop.
They are fast friendly and efficient. I called to make an appointment and they got me in the next day and had my car fixed that day. And they gave me a ride there and back. My car works great!
I own a 2006 Mini Cooper S. Lately Mini has had some issues and when I shifted into first and the clutch pedal went to the floor and didn't come back up, I had that sinking feeling. I took a couple of days to think about replacing the clutch -a $2000.00 repair. I decided to try various garages to hear their prices, work schedules, etc.. My friend told me of a place near Price Chopper in Colchester that repairs Minis, so I drove over. I spoke to the owner, Keith. He immediately told me that it was not the clutch. I was delighted with the news. He said he thought it was the slave or master cylinder, and quoted me fair prices. I decided to have the car towed there the next day. They worked on it most of the day. Keith called me and said unfortunately it was both and that I could have a loaner car and it would be done the next day. It was, but when I put it in gear it was not the same smooth shifting it had been beforehand. I brought the car back in the afternoon. By the next morning the car was fixed and Keith tried to contact me 4 or 5 times to tell me I could pick up Mini. He was right that the shifting was now smooth as silk. I am very happy with the fair repair cost, the prompt service, the use of free loaner, the friendly office staff and mechanics. Thank you, MasterTech for a job well done! I will go back again for Mini maintenance.
MasterTech is Outstanding! This week while camping with my three kids, the brakes on my van began to fail. I called MasterTech and spoke to the owner Keith. I have been a customer with MasterTech for three years, they know my van and I knew they would give me advice over the phone. The response I received is what sets them apart from any of their competition. Keith offered to meet me where I was, with a loaner car and drive my van back to MasterTech to repair the same day. I received updates on my repairs throughout the day and I was able to enjoy my day with my kids. I had peace of mind that my vehicle was being repaired at a fair and reasonable price and as promised my car was returned to me the same day. MasterTech is professional, honest and trustworthy. They go above and beyond for their customers which makes them a 5 Star operation.
Visiting from out of town, heard the proverbial mystery noises from rear of car... brought it in to Master Tech and was truly inpressed by their superlative customer service. They had the problem diagnosed and fixed in no time. Sam could not have been kinder or more professional. Would highly recommend!
One of our ambulances had a mechanical issue while in Colchester. A tech showed up within 10 mins and got us going. Thank you very much for your prompt and professional service Master Tech.
I could not be happier with Keith and his service. On the day of the 2nd biggest snowstorm in history my plow truck broke down. Within hours Keith was at my house, diagnosed the mechanical issue, and made a professional repair at an extremely reasonable price. This is old school, fantastic customer service. I have never received this type of service from other garages. MasterTech has earned my business for many years to come!
Having been in the car business for years with my ex-husband I know a thing or two and I can tell you that these guys are the kindest and most honest I've come across in a long time. My daughters car had a strange problem that no one could actually pinpoint no matter what they trIed. We sunk thousand into this car trying to fix it. The guys at Master tech agreed to take on the job and gave my daughter a FREE loaner car to drive for almost a month while they tried everything they could to figure out why the car ran sometimes and not others. At one point my daughter had to come home for a family emergency so they switched cars and gave her one with brand-new snow tires so she would be safe on the drive to CT . When we finally went to pick up the car they were completely honest about the fact that they just couldn't figure it out. They charged my daughter the minimum they possibly could for MANY hours of labor and then because they knew we had to take the car ! back to CT to her dad Keith gave us HIS AAA card with 200 free towing miles. Well thank God he did because we didn't get more than 90 miles on the highway before it died. Luckily I was following my daughter so she rode back to CT with me and the car ride arrived the next day after the storm. Yes, we were in it! He even paid the extra few miles over the 200 . I don't know about anyone else but I have never had men treat women with such respect and compassion. Thank you guys, we're not going to forget you anytime soon and certainly will tell anyone we know from Vermont where to go for honest and exceptional service!! Happy New Year boys!!!!
Took my car in with 10 minutes notice, gave me a loaner and fixed my broken brakes the same afternoon. All the staff are really friendly, explain exactly what is going on and what's needed. A really great local operation - trustworthy and highly recommended.
On our way from Massachusetts to a youth hockey tournament in Montreal we stopped for gas in Colchester, VT and the shift cable went on our vehicle. Pressed for time and stranded, we called several local repair shops but couldn't find one who could repair our vehicle same day. One of the shops we called recommended MasterTech Automotive. We called MasterTech and spoke with Keith. We explained our situation and Keith offered to do everything he could to help us get on the road again. We had the vehicle towed to the shop and Keith went right to work. He had us back on the road within the hour even though the shop was full and busy. He also showed us how to repair it and gave us some supplies to use if it happened again. That was super helpful since it happened again on the way home. We are grateful that you helped us and allowed us to make it to the rink in time for our daughter to participate in the tournament. We also received a follow-up call to make sure we arrived at our destination ok. Dealing with MasterTech Automotive was a great experience. Keith is a great guy and went beyond expectations. MasterTech really knows how to make a customer feel satisfied. Thanks for your help!
I am obsessed with fairness, and this company is, to me, a representation of that virtue. They are straightforward about the problems they find, the possible solutions, and make recommendations based on their extensive experience. They were recommended to me by a longtime customer, and now I am recommending them to others.
I had to get an inspection last minute and these guys had no problems getting me in right away. Really friendly staff and you can tell they take care of their customers. Even in the 20 minutes I spent there, I heard them give a loaner car and offer someone a ride to work. Definitely will be back!
I am very pleased to provide a review and comments concerning MasterTech Automotive. I lve in Colchester and was happy to become a customer of MasterTech since they are located here in Malletts Bay. We own 2 vehicles, both of which are long out of their warranty periods. Previously we had our vehicles serviced religiously at dealerships. What occured in our situation is that I had a problem with one of our vehicles that needed a quick appointment to address at the dealership I had previously frequented. Because of the bureacracy, the lack of concern in setting up a quick appt. for a long time customer, which happened more often than acceptable, I decided to look elsewhere for our service needs. Fortunately, I heard of MasterTech through others that had work done by them, and brought my car to them. They were receptive, responsive, concerned about diagnosing the problem with our car, and resolved the problem in a timely way. Ever since that initial service ! we have taken both cars to MasterTech for all service needs They are knowledgeable, reliable, honest, price competitive, and focus completely on customer satisfaction. As an example of their work, we had a relative visit us from Quebec. As she was about to drive off, I noticed noise coming from the front wheels, and felt this should be looked at before she left. I called MasterTech, explained the situation, and they had me bring her car right over. They addressed the problem, made adjustments so she could safely return to Quebec, and provided recommendations for her to take to the dealer who normally handled her service needs. This response by MasterTech was greatly appreciated, and typical of how they treat customers. They are located in Colchester, but would recommend them to anyone in Chittenden County for their vehicle service needs.
I have taken my vehicle to many other local mechanics, and was so relieved to find Mastertech! They always explain any mechanical issues, and help find the most cost-effective way to treat the issue. I have often felt taken for granted at other mechanics, but have never felt this way at Mastertech. They are very knowledgeable and friendly, and I wouldn't consider taking my vehicle anywhere else!
The best, most honest staff you will ever find in a shop any where! No matter how far you live from them they are well worth the drive. Never have I had such a good experience before, go ask for Jason and you will never go to another shop again.
Whenever I call the shop to have my car's looked at, the staff treats me like I'm the only customer they have. They strive to get to the bottom of the problem as quickly as possible so we can get our car's back. We trust Master Tech completely to do a great job at an affordable price. Jason, Bruce, Keith and the mechanics are great!!! Thanks
Your staff is as competent as they are kind. After being inspected at the beginning of the servicing I had requested, I was informed that the battery in my Subaru had reached its end. Though not thrilled with the news I trusted the information I was given and authorized its replacement. I have come to believe that a recommendation for servicing from your service techs is something they would do for their own cars were they given the same information. I have never felt "hustled" and am grateful for this. I knew the battery was the original and at 70,000+ miles the need for a new battery made good sense. The tires recommended were fairly priced and are a substantial improvement from what had come with the Forester. The safety factor alone these guys provided is a winner! I have no suggestions for improvement! Many thanks!
Master Tech is the most trustworthy garage you can find. They take pride in their work and value their customers. They understand that repeat customers over the life of their vehicle will be far more valuable than gouging someone the one time they come in. I trust them with my BMW, and even though BMW service is excellent, I find Master Tech can easily keep up with them while saving me a few dollars. If your car needs attention, go to Master Tech. You'll be happy you did.
I've always used the dealerships that my husband worked at but found myself needing a new garage. I asked around and Master Tech was highly recommended. I agree. They really care about their customers and about doing an excellent job for a fair price. Jason is great when he calls to give me the status on my car. They also have pick up and drop off service, even at the last minute this morning when Jason sent his dad to pick me up with my car that was finished! I'm very happy that I found them!
MasterTech provides excellent service - I've been using them for the past three years. They always check my car out thoroughly when it's in for service, fix what needs fixing, and let me know about work that will need to be done in the future. They recommended synthetic oil for my car - which cuts down on the number of oil changes that are needed. MasterTech is reliable, pleasant to deal with, and employ skilled mechanics. I trust them completely, recommend them without reservation, and won't take my car anywhere else, so long as I work nearby.
