For whatever else may pose a threat to your vehicle's road performance, our knowledgeable auto specialists provide a number of other miscellaneous auto services. And because our work is guaranteed, you can rest assured that you're receiving the best workmanship possible. Let us know how we can help you! Contact us at 802-652-9991 to set up an appointment for additional quality auto services.
Our miscellaneous auto services include:
Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At MasterTech Automotive in Colchester, VT 05446, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.
After-Hours Drop Off
Sometimes auto repair needs arise long after most auto repair shops have closed (most auto repair shops close at 6 pm). With after-hours drop off services, you leave your car at the mechanics shop for repair even if the shop has closed. You simply fill out an envelope, put in your keys, and drop it in a drop box. The auto shop will only contact you when your car is ready or when they need additional information. At MasterTech Automotive, we value your convenience and that is why we offer after-hours drop off services. A completed Drop-Off Form will help the mechanic diagnose any problems. Even if we have closed, you just drop-off your vehicle at our shop and our mechanics will work on it and contact you when it is ready.
Free Loaner Car with Repairs By Appointment
Do you need wheels while your car is in an auto repair shop? To cope with your busy life while your vehicle is with a mechanic, we offer a free loaner car. A free loaner car lets you have wheels while your car is in a mechanic's shop. MasterTech Automotive is one of the few auto shops that offer free loaner cars to their customers. At MasterTech Automotive, we are ready to provide assistance and help you when your vehicle has broken down. A prearranged appointment is necessary and subject to availability.
Free Local Pickup and Delivery with Repairs By Appointment
In certain circumstances, auto shops offer pickup and delivery services. This is whereby the auto shop picks up the vehicle at your work place or home, works on it, and delivers it after it is fully repaired and serviced. This saves you time and money. The p/u and delivery service can be either free or paid for. At MasterTech Automotive, we offer free local pickup and delivery whereby we routinely pick up your car from your home or workplace. We want to make the task of having that car repaired/serviced as stress free as possible. This service is subject to appointment.
Free Local Shuttle Service with Repairs By Appointment
When you drop your car at our garage for repair and servicing, you don't always have the time to wait until we've finished servicing your car. To get your busy life going on, we offer free local shuttle services. At MasterTech Automotive in Colchester, VT 05446, we offer free local shuttle services to our customers. This service allows you to conveniently go back to your day's routine as we work on your vehicle - you don't have to wait at the shop. This service is by appointment.

Mechanics at MasterTech Automotive have a passion for performance too. The mechanics will make all the necessary performance modifications to ensure you get the best performance from your drive.

Trailer Hitches, Wiring and Tires
Although a trailer does not have an engine of its own, it does require some maintenance. The trailer needs wires to move current to the brake lights and other lights at the back. MasterTech Automotive has qualified and experienced electricians who will handle your trailer maintenance. Call us at 802-652-9991 to schedule an appointment.
Welding is the fabrication and sculptural process that joins metal parts. At MasterTech Automotive, we offer various welding services. Simply give us a call at 802-652-9991 or visit our shop in Colchester, VT.
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. MasterTech Automotive can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let MasterTech Automotive replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit MasterTech Automotive today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 802-652-9991 or visit MasterTech Automotive today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit MasterTech Automotive in Colchester, VT 05446 today.
The experts at MasterTech Automotive can inspect your vehicle and perform services that can help it operate at peak performance and help improve fuel efficiency and overall fuel economy. These inspections and services may include items such as:
Are you planning to buy a new car? Don't take chances. Be confident about the car you are buying. Have pre-purchase inspections performed on the vehicle. Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At MasterTech Automotive, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.
A pre-trip check up can make the difference between a safe trip and one that ends in a tragedy.

We have pre-trip inspection experts who are able to conduct safety inspections on any car, make, and model. Our experts are dedicated to ensuring you have a safe trip.

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.
