A Wee Gem of a Garage!
"A great wee find. My wife & I had bought Daihatsu cars for 20 years & used the dealer in Troon for all our repairs/servicing until the owner retired in 2017. I had decided to use Seedhill Service Station for my full annual service & MOT due at the end of March because of their web site special price offer, but had to use them earlier when my brakes started acting up. A great wee crew - knowledgeable, very friendly, and happy to take time to explain what problems have been found & what they'll do to fix them and the costs involved. Also, my wife was delighted they chaps don't talk down to females. Will definitely use them for my service/MOT!"
"Very polite & efficient service, brilliant in what they did would highly recommend"
"100% happy with Westbere Garage. Rang around for a same day MOT- only Garage in the area happy to slot me in. Really friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic value for money. Definitely gained a long term customer here!"
"I am happy with the service I received and the gentlemen I spoke to were very friendly and completed the work with no hassle and showed great workmanship. I thought they were very helpful, (kept me informed while I waited for my wing mirror to be delivered). I will be going back next time when I need work doing....especially as they give you a loyalty card and wouldn't grumble about the price either! ;)"
"Really pleased with my experience. They came and collected the car and dropped it back for me. The staff were friendly and helpful. I did call after 3 hours for an update as I was getting nervous about the amount of time and not hearing anything (but that's just me!) Thank you All Cars!"
"I was taken seriously (an unusual experience for a woman at at garage). John was honest about his knowledge of my very unusual car. He passed me on to a mechanic who was experienced with my car. John told me not to listen to anyone who said my car needed a service. He was honest, very efficient and very supportive."
"Brilliant, they went through the car thoroughly, I can now drive assured the car is safe to be on the road"
Beat service yet
"WE were happy and were kept informed and no issues getting the courtesy car ."
"I had a great experience with Topgear, they picked up and dropped off my car and kept me informed about what needed to be done and when my car would be delivered 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.
Daihatsu is the oldest of all the Japanese car manufacturers, harking all the way back to 1907 when it began trading as the Hatsudoki Seizo Company ltd. In 1953 they began exporting models, by this time as Daihatsu, although in the last twenty years or so these markets have contracted, and the marque hasn’t sold cars in the UK since 2011. These days Daihatsu is owned by Toyota, despite which there are still plenty of Daihatsus on British roads. The most frequently seen models are the mini SUV Terios, and the Materia minivan.
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 Sandy 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.
