Late pick up
"I live 0.3 miles away arranged for my car to be collected at 0900. The day before around 1700 I got a call asking if they can collect the car at 0730. I said no so we remained on 0900. At 0920 I called up they said the driver will be there at 1000. Then at 1000 they called up to say the driver will be there at 1030. So I missed my scheduled Physical training session. They collected it at 1030 called up around 1100 to say everything looks good would I like the rear brake drums to be checked for and extra £55 I said no. But I did request they give me a call before the driver drops the car off so I can make sure I'm home. I left home and came back around 1515 had a knock on the door 15 min later and got my keys and paperwork back. But no heads up call. Had Engine oil and filter changed as well as the air filter total cost £155.57. I would recommend the garage if you drop off and pick up your car."
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.
One of the largest car makers in the world, Toyota offers vehicles for nearly every budget and need. Its huge range consists of everything from small city cars like the Aygo to the off-roader Land Cruiser.
Toyota played a hugely important role in making hybrid vehicles as successful as they are today, with the Prius being found on many a city street around the world. But what about the next step? Well, the hydrogen fuel cell-powered Toyota Mirai could become the new normal as far as eco-friendly driving is concerned - but we’ll have to wait and see!
Toyota is Number One
At least when it comes to global car manufacturing. Toyota happily outsells all other automotive brands, making the Japanese giant a major success story. They place quality engineering and manufacturing above all else, proving to be incredibly reliable and hugely popular with their worldwide customers.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Buxton 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.
