Helpful, great service
"Very helpful staff, offered me a lift into town while I waited and offered to pick me up if needed too. No unnecessary work done, and they even gave the car a free valet for me."
"Have always had fantastic service, and this time they even prioritised my car to get it ready by a certain time."
"I used this garage for the first time and everything was very easy from booking online to getting the car back. The service was very quick and I got already a message that I could collect the car when I just had arrived back home. I learned that they also offer to collect the car at your home when you live locally and that is what I will choose the next time as I have difficulties walking. Thank you so much for such a good first experience!"
"Service and MOT completed in line with expectations. Kept fully informed of progress by friendly staff."
"Took my car for a service and MOT. It needed a few bits doing but I was kept informed throughout and the cost was exceptionally good value for money. Car even came back cleaned and hoovered. Communication was absolutely fantastic so will definitely be going back in future."
"Very happy with the work done and quality"
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!
