"after picking up the car there were many warning lights that came on. The garage's screening process for issues, after work is carried out, needs to be imported."
Pleased with the service
"Have visited checkpoint prenton on a number of occasions and have been very pleased with the service"
"Great service and excellent customer service"
"Couldn’t recommend them enough, so helpful and top quality work!"
Good Local Garage
"I was happy with the service provided and kept in the loop with the service and MOT, The lady behind the counter was helpful and offered refreshments as I had to work directly out of the garage during the 2-3 hours the car was being worked on, My only recommendation is to have a workstation somewhere for those who wish to work whilst their car is in service or repair as it was a little uncomfortable having the laptop on my lap. Also have a water station for people to have fresh water when required If this would be addressed then I would give it a full 5 out of 5 review"
"Very happy with the quality of work"
"Job done quality with no delays, pleasant service. Thanks"
"Worked it around my work schedule and allowed me to pick up Saturday when they dont work"
"Sevice was ok"
"My car was picked up and dropped off again which was nice, good prices and friendly staff, definitely would use again"
"Dean was extremley friendly and down to earth. He was great with my little boy too! As I only had a service and outcome was that there was nothing to "fix", i can't really comment on the actual quality of work. The fact that I was a woman who clearly knows nothing about cars and the car got a clear bill of health, shows he is trustworthy and honest which goes a long way! I would highly recommend."
The brakes on your car utilise fluid pressure.
When the brake pedal is depressed, it activates a plunger in the master cylinder,
which pressurises the brake fluid in the pipes and hoses causing the brake components to move.
Brake repairs are one of the most common reasons to visit a garage; all cars need their brake discs and pads replaced at regular intervals. Some of the warning signs for brake failure are squealing or grinding noises when depressing the brakes, or the brake feeling 'spongy' when the pedals is pressed. And of course if you need to brake increasingly hard to effectively slow or stop your car, then you could well be looking at brake replacement.
There are two main types of brake systems: disc brakes and drum brakes.
Disc brake systems are comprised of two pads per wheel, which clamp down on the brake disc when the brake pedal is depressed. When the fluid becomes pressurised, it sends a plunger in the calliper forward, forcing the brake pads on either side of the brake disc to squeeze it, which results in the slowing and stopping of the car.
Drum brakes operate in the same way as disc brakes, but with a different design. They both use friction to slow and stop the car, but drum brakes use shoes, instead of pads. The shoes are inside the steel brake drum itself, which spins with the wheel. When brake pressure is applied, a component called the wheel cylinder expands, forcing the brake shoes apart and towards the inside edge of the drum. Drum brakes are usually found on older vehicles, or just on the rear brake system.
An iconic brand - what can be said about BMW that hasn’t already been said? Renowned for their handling prowess and performance, BMW make it a point of pride to build beautiful cars. They even used to go by the tagline “The Ultimate Driving Machine” - no need to be humble when you’re BMW, after all.
The 3 and 5 series of BMWs are the foundation of their ranges, and widely thought to be the best cars that they make, full stop. The M5 has even held the position of best sporting saloon car in the world for the last 25 years.
On the more adventurous side of things, BMW have made some more niche outputs, such as the 5 series GT and the X6 more recently. Always on the cutting edge, BMW aren’t content to rest on their laurels. With no weak vehicles in their lineup, you know what to expect when you have a BMW in your garage.
