"Yes it was a great service"
"As usual speedy service carried out for a reasonable price, will keep using them. Highly recommend"
Good value, good service.
"Very helpful when booking, great service, excellent value for money."
"Service done within timescale and I was advised promptly when car was ready to collect. On arrival car was being taken for a clean, which was nice but the outside was washed haphazardly and looked dirtier than when I dropped it off. Not really a problem as it may have been done in a hurry and certainly no complaints with the overall quality and speed of the service provided. Would happily return."
"I was very happy with the service, I was kept informed during the process of what was happening and how long work would take. Any questions I had were answered"
"Very good garage"
"Very easy - picked vehicle up and dropped it back - information and help provided - washed and cleaned. Very impressed."
"Great work as always, car returned the same day, cleaned and valeted"
Good service with issues
"Was happy with the service provided and the videos sent showing the problems with the car. My issues are that the car was meant to be returned after the service which didn't happen. I was also asked to pay more than the agreed upon price when picking up my car. It makes me wonder about the validity of this website when garages can make up their own price when the work is complete."
High standard as usually
"Kept informed, well priced and work completed to usual high standards. Can’t fault them."
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.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Bridgend you could be missing out on a better deal.
