"There isn't any of the negative treatment I have had from other garages regarding being a female. There haven't been any issues around any work done over the last 2 years. I've had services and MOT's done on the same car. Very thorough and polite. I'll be going back."
"I was quite pleased with the work done - I was fully informed at every stage if any further work was needed. I was made aware of the costs in advance. They drained and replaced my brake fluid at no charge since apparently the wrong fluid was put into the reservoir at some point (Not by them). And to top it all off they washed it before I picked it up. Prices were reasonable considering the labour and costs involved."
"Really good value, slight issue with a part but garage rectified and kept open communication and came to a resolution. The value was the most appealing, I had a really in depth service to my car, and an MOT for a really good price compared to major chains."
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.
It’s safe to say a lot has changed since November 1911 in Detroit, when road racer Louis Chevrolet and General Motors founder Billy Durant created Chevrolet. In the century since then, the brand has come to embody the best of American automobile ingenuity, in good times and bad.
One of the biggest brands in the world, Chevrolet cars are sold in most every country today, and have been around since the very early days of Ford’s Model-T (which the company began selling in 1929). Based in the home of automobiles, Detroit, Michigan, the company has had their ups and downs, but are most famous for their brand of American muscle cars. Right now drivers are also loving their five year, 100,000 mile warranty offers.
Experts have said that the best car in their range is the Orlando, a seven-seat MPV that offers outstanding value for money, but gives a sadly lack-lustre driving experience. With the launch of the Volt in the UK, Chevy now has a vehicle that can make a difference in its line up, even if it’s only a niche car at the moment.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Bath or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
