"I took my car for my annual car service. The check was done quickly and they rang me to inform me of work that needed doing for the near future. They kept to the rockets that had been quoted online which was good. The only thing is my air con was regassed and then went on to smell bad as my filter needed changing. I was surprised no one picked this up as I smelt the smell when I picked up my car but thought it was due to something else until I used my air con 2 days later. They quickly sorted my filter when I came back later that week but it potentially could’ve been sorted in one go. Otherwise great service all round."

"Top marks for a top service from Nikhil - picked up the car, did the MOT and service, kept me informed throughout and dropped the car back nice and clean - and all for less than a third of the price quoted by Renault. Same time next year!"
"My car is an old rusty car that had been off the road for some time - the guys got it back up and running in just a few days and we’re very cost efficient for which I was very grateful!!"
"I have been coming to this Garage since I started driving. They are all lovely people and always call during an MOT etc if work needs to be completed and advise you of the best option. Thank you for all your hard work guys."
Friendly & Reliable
"Took my car here back in Dec 2017 after Halfords told me I need an expensive part (indicator stalk) David looked at and said all I needed was a new hazard sensor/switch. I’ve also had my back breaks fitted here. David and co are all friendly and reliable. Will definitely be using them for all repairs. Very reasonably priced"
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.
Driving in London
London is the most densely populated region in the UK, and so it presents challenges for motorists who need to get around the capital fast. On average, drivers in the London commute zone waste an extraordinary 82 hours a year to traffic congestion. Fifteen of the 25 most congested roads in the country are in London: Bedford Road in Clapham has been rated the worst, with Uxbridge Road in Southall and South Ealing and Eversholt Street in Camden also in the top 10.
