The latest vehicles are fitted with ADAS systems to increase vehicle and driver safety. The main functions of ADAS include lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, adaptive head lights, adaptive light control, automatic parking, automatic braking systems, automotive night vision, traffic sign recognition, lane change assistance, blind spot monitoring, rear view cameras, turning assistant, forward collision warnings, driver drowsiness detection and more.
When your vehicle’s windshield is replaced, some of the cameras and sensors of ADAS may become misaligned. Therefore, your vehicle’s ADAS must be recalibrated to function accurately.
If your vehicle requires recalibration to be done we do not yet have the ability to perform this task at out location, in the future we hope to purchase a recalibration machine to allow ease of use for all our customers. For the time being we are able to suggest business in Saskatchewan that preform recalibration, we are fully capable of replacing the windshield and your vehicle will still be able to drive without the recalibration we do however suggest that the recalibration be performed soon after installation of your new windshield.
If you are using your insurance to replace your windshield they will be required to pay for the recalibration to be done as it is required in the installation process of your windshield. If you do not have insurance coverage you will be required to pay what the business charges for recalibration, recalibration will range from $90 to $180 quotes can be obtained but will not be included in the windshield quote when quoted over the phone or in person.
