"I took my car to Halls for a service at 8AM and it was ready before lunch. Good service from all the staff. Will use this garage again"
Not keept informed
"Actual service was top quality. Unfortunately I was told Imperial Cars will notify me in due course when MOT+Full service is ready which did not happen. I dropped my car at Chertsey Service at 8.30 am and only after sending them a quick email at 4.30 pm did I recieve a one liner telling me to come and pick it up. I feel this can definetly improve!"
"Not being mechanically minded I can only assume that the work carried out was to a good quality hence the 3 star average rating. I can say that there was good communication from the garage and sound advice given in a timely manner with no pressure selling so all good as far as I'm concerned. My local garage closed and I used these guys for the first time and will be using them again."
Brilliant helpful staff
"Love your garage and staff"
"MOT would recommend"
"Collected car and delivered it back. Collected at 0815 and rang to say work completed and they were bringing it back at 1215 which was pretty good. All work completed as requested."
"Reliable and efficient local garage. I've been a regular customer and never been disappointed."
"To the point."
"Excellent service by the team at Secret Service Mazda!"
Well priced service & MOT
"Very happy with the service.... I just miss having my car washed as part of the service. It’s a small thing but means a lot. Perhaps offer this as a extra ? Overall happy"
Easy to deal with.
"Easy to book in, the car was ready on time and at price agreed."
"I called up the night before asking what time they wanted my car. The guy was really friendly and chatty, making me feel at ease as this was the first time I was trying a new garage. I dropped the car off and even though there was a mistake with the computer system and the poor guys were rushed off their feet, they were really thorough, giving sound advice and explanations. I felt they did a great job and put my worries to rest. They were honest with the work that would need doing and booked me in for a week later to complete the necessary work. I was really satisfied with what they had done and would recommend them to others."
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.
Founded in Hiroshima, Japan in 1920, Mazda started out as a manufacturer of machine tools and didn’t move into the automotive business until 1931, when they produced their first “autorickshaw”. They’ve come a long way since then! The name has an interesting backstory too - the company says that it is derived from Ahura Mazda, the ancient Persian god of light, intelligence, and wisdom.
But beyond all that, Mazda is a maker of affordable, economical cars that are fun to drive and don’t break the bank. They also have a few sports cars on offer, for those who want something with a bit more pizzazz. That coupled with their saloons, SUVs, and hatchbacks means that everyone should be able to find something to fit in their garage.
