"Picked up my car and dropped it off. Excellent price, very happy."
Really good service
"Very friendly reception staff They serviced the car ahead of time too"
"Very helpful service desk when needed to change address for free collectiondelivery. Ready when they said it would be. Cheaper than quoted as finished quicker(that's never happened to me before!) Very pleasant mechanic. Wasn't expecting such good service."
"Excellent customer service. MOT completed in 90 mins. Car was even washed afterwards! All for £9.99 Can't fault it. Will be taking my wife's car for MOT for sure."
Pleased with the service
"Got my car service and MOT here. Cheapest in the area. My car was picked up and returned to my house for free. I was kept updated after my service was completed to tell me everything was OK and the price was as quoted. Really friendly service, when my car returned it had been cleaned, which was a lovely surprise. Will definitely be using again in the future!"
No show to pick car up
"Nobody turned up waited in all day but no show I took a day off work for nothing"
"Prompt service, highly recommended."
"The experience was marred by the confusion, when I was forced, in the absence of any confirmation from the garage, to telephone the garage the day before the work was due to be carried out, about whether the booking, made weeks earlier, was recorded. Communication between garage and customer needs to be improved - including confirmation of booking by email or telephone call 2 or 3 days beforehand, especially when bookings are made some weeks in advance."
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. What if a garage with a collection / drop off service or courtesy car could do the same job at a good price, without the inconvenience of losing your car for the duration of the repair?
