I left the car for the MOT and it was not long before I had a call to advise it had failed. They advised what work needed doing to pass and the cost for the job. They were able to complete the work that day and I as able to collect before the 5pm traffic. I was really impressed with the ease of the process and the friendliness of the staff.

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.
One of the largest car makers in the world, Toyota offers vehicles for nearly every budget and need. Its huge range consists of everything from small city cars like the Aygo to the off-roader Land Cruiser.
Toyota played a hugely important role in making hybrid vehicles as successful as they are today, with the Prius being found on many a city street around the world. But what about the next step? Well, the hydrogen fuel cell-powered Toyota Mirai could become the new normal as far as eco-friendly driving is concerned - but we’ll have to wait and see!
