"I have been coming to Top Gear for 5 years and they always been brilliant. Always willing to go out their way to help."
"My car was collected when specified, service carried out as requested. Friendly staff member collected and returned my car as soon as service was complete. Advisories had costings which was very helpful. Overall very happy"
Would use again
"I used Ash Autos for the first time for service and breaks. I booked online then received a call from the garage the next day to confirm the booking and they offered free collection of my car. I had time restrictions on the day and they were great at working to my timeline. I was kept informed of costs and progress of work. Friendly staff! I will use them next time."
"They were 15 minutes late to open but the mechanic had been stuck in traffic and was apologetic. The work was done in good time and to a high standard. The waiting area was good, with a settee, TV, and free WiFi. The mechanic fully explained the advisory my car had on its MOT, without pressuring me to pay for any unnecessary repair work. They put my car back on the street instead of making me drive it out of the work area. All in all, I'd recommend this service centre."
"Great service, and the office was really accommodating to find the most suitable time for me to bring the car in. The mechanic went that extra mile and re-fitted a part that kept coming off my car, at no extra cost. I would highly recommend this garage."

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.
