"Easy to book, good service"
Great service, fantastic!
"Collected my car as agreed and completed a full service. I then chose to have my brake pads done, I was advised I had a number of months left in them yet, he did not try and encourage me to change these but I chose to go ahead regardless. This was completed the same day also and car returned washed! What more could you ask for! Someone who will carry out the work, not try and sell you extra, but happy to complete your requests - 10/10."

"Very helpful and quick"
"Efficient and informative work completed; impressed with the use of technology to keep me informed of progress."
"I was kept fully informed and couldn't be happier with the work done. It was a genuine pleasure to use the garage and Tim could not have been more helpful. I will be coming back for future work."
"Extremely easy to book online and fantastic service. Staff all very helpful and friendly."
"Arranged for my Kia Sportage to be collected and Dave was prompt with time keeping. My MOT was carried out early so their was no hanging around to find out what was happening. Received a call about a service item before they went ahead so didn't get a surprise bill. Sunroof didn't work but these guys cleaned and regreased it and now works perfectly. I was expecting a bill of twice the size of what it was for the work so surprised with how cheap they were. Although they were chip, that didn't compromise the high quality of work they carried out. All in all they were very professional and very polite. I really haven't got anything bad to say about this place. They carried out all the work better and more efficiently than a main dealer. Highly recommended from a happy customer and will always return for any work to be carried out on our vehicles."
"Really happy with the service staff very helpful, informed me about the rising prices on the gas for Air con but charged me at the quoted price not the new price which was very good of them. Shame gas prices are going up as probably won't be able to afford a refill again"
"Excellent service, friendly helpful staff. Will definitely use this garage again!"
Great customer service
"Fab customer service. Definitely be back"
"Really happy with service"
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.
Founded in 1944 as a maker of handmade steel tubing and bicycle parts, the company known today as Kia opened its first automotive assembly line in 1973 and built a small range of cars known as Brisa in 1981. After a bit of a lull, they really started pumping out the vehicles again in 1986, and partnered up with Ford.
Kia Motors Corporation is headquartered in Seoul, and is South Korea's second-largest auto manufacturer, just beyond Hyundai. According to Kia themselves, the name roughly translates to “rising out of Asia”. Nowadays they offer up a very impressive seven-year warranty on all their cars to please many drivers, and they are consistently rated highly across the board.
The style of older Kias on the road used to be quite questionable, but thanks to a modern makeover, cars from this Korean brand now sport stylish, trendy designs. The current range includes a wide spectrum of vehicles, from the compact Venga city car to the Sorento SUV. The Pro Ceed hot hatch is great for drivers looking for a better, stronger performance and Kia even offers the Soul EV, a fully electric vehicle, for those who after after eco-friendliness and cheap running costs.
What do you need from your garage?
We all have different needs, and choosing a garage is no different. For some of us, it’s the quality of the overall service which matters most; not just the work that’s done under the bonnet, but the human interaction that comes with it. BookMyGarage allows you to compare Newmarket garages on everything from their waiting room refreshments or whether having your toddler in tow is going to be a problem, to how clearly the staff can explain the work your car requires.
