"Richard and his team at Metro are great. They communicate clearly about what is going on during any work. All work is priced - doing their best to do quality work for best price. I have moved to South Edinburgh and it now takes me an hour to get to Metro but after 10 years of good service wouldn't think about going anywhere else. Have recommended Metro to friends and they say the same."

A Wee Gem of a Garage!
"A great wee find. My wife & I had bought Daihatsu cars for 20 years & used the dealer in Troon for all our repairs/servicing until the owner retired in 2017. I had decided to use Seedhill Service Station for my full annual service & MOT due at the end of March because of their web site special price offer, but had to use them earlier when my brakes started acting up. A great wee crew - knowledgeable, very friendly, and happy to take time to explain what problems have been found & what they'll do to fix them and the costs involved. Also, my wife was delighted they chaps don't talk down to females. Will definitely use them for my service/MOT!"
"Very polite & efficient service, brilliant in what they did would highly recommend"
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.
Daihatsu is the oldest of all the Japanese car manufacturers, harking all the way back to 1907 when it began trading as the Hatsudoki Seizo Company ltd. In 1953 they began exporting models, by this time as Daihatsu, although in the last twenty years or so these markets have contracted, and the marque hasn’t sold cars in the UK since 2011. These days Daihatsu is owned by Toyota, despite which there are still plenty of Daihatsus on British roads. The most frequently seen models are the mini SUV Terios, and the Materia minivan.
