"Very happy with the service "
"I had my MOT due, however I also had two children with me a holiday club to get to and a baby with chicken pox... so I needed my car to be out of action for as short amount of time as possible. The wonderful lady who booked us in really worked her magic to make sure everything went like clockwork and the car was only gone for as minimum amount of time as they could. Car flew through, guys were lovely as always, been going to Johnson’s for years now. The new premises are looking great too. Thank you all. Can’t recommend them enough."
"Wish I'd brought my summer discount paper flyer with me for the 15 % discount on repairs, but I'll definitely be returning my car, when required, in future"
Efficient and friendly
"Happy with this garage from start to finish"
"Quick and easy"
"Proffesional and good job"
"Quality of the work is great, have absolutely no complaints. Communication during the work could have been much improved as I often had to call to find out information such as if the repairs would take more than one day - which for most people is quite important information. They would also call much later than expected; was told that they would phone first thing in the morning with a quote for repairs however I didn't receive a call until almost 11. Overall good, but did find them a bit expensive and they could improve communication."

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.
A heritage German brand that has been a favourite for decades, it’s hard to throw a stone without hitting someone who owns or has owned a Golf at some point in their life! It’s essentially a rite of passage for anyone searching for a safe, reliable, and family-friendly car.
Interestingly, Volkswagen has three cars in the top 10 list of best-selling cars of all time - the Volkswagen Golf, the Beetle, and the Passat. Not bad, right?
Known for their reliability and value for money, VWs have long served as a reasonably priced little sibling to the more luxurious Audi, receiving excellent reviews across the board when it comes to the motoring press. You’d be hard pressed to find a range of cars as practical, safety-conscious, attractive and just generally good to drive as a Volkswagen.
What do you need from your garage?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Clacton-on-Sea. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
