"Happy with service and price."
"Great service, except one thing, the booking online didn’t add my pick up and drop off which was a shame, tried to contact the service Centre but the numbers on all of the confirmations don’t actually take you to the garage you have booked. Having said all of this once I did get through to the right garage everything was sorted and a pick up of my car arranged very quickly to rectify the issue. My car was serviced and no issues, returned nice and clean and washed! Thank you!"
Polite and efficient
"They came to pick up my car at a very convenient time, was called promptly with some minor work that needed to be done and my car was returned long before I finished work."
"Originally just a full service which went to plan. Whilst doing the service, it was discovered that my brakes were pretty much 'shot to pieces' all round. I was given a telephone call and all of my options were talked through. I wasn't pressurised into having the work done but was given lots of help and advice. I eventually agree to the work and was told that despite the amount of work that needed doing, that it would all be done that day. It was and my car now feels like new!"
"I was searching for a reliable garage for my MOT after being disappointed with another local garage. Checked the reviews & very happy that York Rd lived up to expectations. I will definitely return."
"They did not know I was booked in on the day I arrived."
"It was useful that I was able to drop my car off the night before and post the keys through. Efficient service and communication"
"Extremely happy will use again."
"booked on line recieved a call from workshop to confirm ,dropped car off they gave me a loan car, they could have picked it up, but i needed a car in case of emergency great service and MOT .HIGHLY RECOMENDED"
"So friendly and supportive . Really honest and straightforward transaction"

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.
