"Helpfulness of manager Sean"
"I was recommended by family to this garage, I usually use my council MOT depot, but was staying with family for holidays when MOT due. The most notable part of the experience was just how friendly and likable the staff were, always an asset to mechanics being trusted with your car! I dropped off the car first thing in morning, the MOT was carried out swiftly, spoke to them mid-morning to arrange a minor repair requiring new parts and car was ready to be collected mid-afternoon. Hassle-free experience, how great is that?! Will be returning to this garage in future when needed."
Great Customer Service!
"Really impressed with my experience with Balham cars. The team were attentive, incredibly friendly and professional. I booked in for a full service and MOT only the day before, however they managed to fit me in, and kept me updated throughout the day on progress. I would absolutely recommend and will certainly be coming back for any repairs/services needed in the future. Thanks!"

Great honest garage
"Did my research, read lots of reviews and then took my car for MOT to Steins garage. I met quite few pleasant welcoming people including George and Craig. Car passed mot with no problems. From experience, this does not happen that often unless you deal with an honest garage. I am very please and thankful. I will be happy to take my car back for any repairs and I would definitely recommend Steins Garage to friends and family."
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.
Skoda has a long and storied history producing cars that are sold around the world! One of the five oldest companies producing cars today, with an unbroken history right alongside Daimler, Opel, Peugeot, and Tatra, the Skoda Works were initially established as an arms manufacturing plant in 1859. Since 1990 they’ve been part of the Volkswagen group, and this Czech brand is now known for producing a fine range of excellent value, high quality cars.
The current range comprises everything from the compact Fabia to the incredibly spacious Superb Estate with a mix of off-road and high-performance cars thrown in for good measure. The practical Yeti is an agile SUV with off-road capability, while the Octavia VRS offers sharp sports car speed.
On top of all that, customer satisfaction has consistently helped Skoda rank highly against more established competitors.
