"Treated very well"
"I was kept informed, given a choice, they carried out the repair passed the MOT and it cost less than I thought it would. Brilliant place. I wouldn't go anywhere else."
"Happy for everything"
It was a good deal
"Thanks for sorting out my MOT and service. Try to ensure that you keep people informed throughout the checks."
"Able to leave my car then get on with my day"
Room for improvement
"I had the oil changed and a visual look over my car, when I collected it my service light hadn't been turned off, which I thought should have been. I was told that there was some fault code on my car which apparently stops them erasing my service light. Before fetching my car I received a phone call advising me of a few things that needed doing but this fault code wasn't mentioned then. It sounded to me at the time that they couldn't be bothered to explain this fault code and I wasn't very happy at all."
Local and well priced
"Always nervous about taking a car for a service as it always leads to further costs. Tried trade and save and it was a hassle free experience. The work done and my service book stamped was well worth the money."
"Brilliant price for an MOT and full service. As no other work was needed to the car I can't comment on repairs. However I did ask them for a quote to repair a small crack in my bumper and they were very honest about the work that was needed and the best way to go about it (which didn't include them), so that made me think highly of them. Would recommend."
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.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Worcester you could be missing out on a better deal. What if a garage with a collection / drop off service or courtesy car could do the same job at a good price, without the inconvenience of losing your car for the duration of the repair?
