FIRST TIME USER
"NO EXTRA WORK NEEDED SO NO CONTACT REQUIRED HOWEVER HIGH DENSITY BRAKE LIGHT NEEDS REPLACING AS NOT DONE IN SERVICE AND HAD TO ASK FOR 'SERVICE SCHEDULE' AS NOT SENT, AS INFORMED."
Do what they so they do.
"Booked in for MOT, thankfully the car passed. While I waited the guys seemed to be busy, calling customers to let them know about their vehicles eg parts needed, findings etc. There also seemed to be parts delivery people dropping off. They seemed to check each deliver to ensure the correct parts had been delivered (I’ve seen a more slapdash approach at other garages and it worried me!). Prices for servicing seemed quite reasonable and attitude towards the customer was friendly and happy to advise."
"Was very impressed with online service quote and check in system. Would recommend their efficiency and value for money."
"Staff were professional and kept me updated with status of the work being carried out on my vehicle. Would definitely recommend Lavender Motors."
"Great local garage."
On the ball.
"Easy to book online and work completed exactly on time."
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.
Lexus is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Toyota. The Lexus marque is marketed in over 70 countries and territories worldwide and has become Japan's largest-selling make of premium cars. The company is headquartered in Nagoya, Japan, with 0perational centers located in Brussels, Belgium, and southern California in the US.
Lexus has built up a reputation over the years for building high-quality, comfortable, technologically advanced cars. There isn’t anything particularly cheap and cheerful in its range, but you can expect to see a great selection of well-made, well-executed high end vehicles.
Lexus also was responsible for building the astonishing, no longer produced LFA supercar, which was the Japanese manufacturer’s first entry into the world of high-performance cars. The experiment ended up spawning a number of sporty coupe offerings.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Canterbury or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
