Excellent as always
"Spot on as usual"
"Fully satisfied. Took really long time and checked properly & thoroughly..."
"I was very happy with the work"
"The staff were very helpful and I will be using this garage again."
"Very good communications and pro active planning"
"Dropped vehicle off. 1 hour later received video of mot fails on my phone ( a fantastic touch ). Then received a call from the very helpful Phil who discussed the options with me. All was agreed, payment made online a d after a couple more calls to address a locking wheel nut issue car was delivered to me. Fantastic communication and service throughout."
"The staff were super friendly and helpful. I can’t fault that. I was a little disappointed that my car wasn’t offered for collection or drop off as per my booking, or that a lease car wasn’t available. Which were both reasons as to why I decided to use this garage. For general use I would not fault their service, the extra offered was were I felt let down."
"Great service provided again by this garage. Always doing extra work and not charging."
"Garage doesn’t give a good impression from the beginning as the car park is chaos and has no spaces anywhere, cars parked in roads etc. Staff seemed unclear as to what was booked in, had to be reminded of the various bits of service required. They were unable to fix my boot as they didn’t have a part for my Peugeot which is fair enough as they are a Vauxhall garage but they knew well in advance that I wanted it fixed as part of the service and did not get in touch to find out what the issue was. Tried to overcharge me for engine diagnostics and I had to show the email booking from bookmygarage to get it reduced to correct price. Not great overall and wouldn’t go back."
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 French dealer renowned for the sporty qualities of its small cars, Peugeot is as popular now as it was nearly a hundred years ago. A part of PSA Peugeot Citroen, the family business that preceded the current company was founded back in 1810, although in those days they manufactured bicycles and coffee mills!
While still known for its small, sporty and economical models, Peugeot now make a wide variety of differently shaped and sized cars. You’ll also notice that Peugeot have defiantly skipped the long-standing trend of naming their cars, instead choosing to use numbers and letters (3008, 5008, and RCZ, for example).
Today the range includes three sporty vehicles - the 208 and 308 GTi, which are hatchbacks, and the RCZ coupe, among others. The range spans ultra compact cars to spacious SUVs, and family friendly vehicles to more flashier options, like the aforementioned RCZ.
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 Hinckley 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.
