"I was happy with the service"
"Good, fast and very well priced no complaints here!"
"I have used FTS for many years as they are friendly and helpful and always seem to try and get the best deal for you. Don't know how long they have been doing it but I found out this year that they also pick up your car and return it free of charge which is really convenient."
"All staff always friendly, keep me fully informed of what needs doing, including potential costs."
"Very happy with the service I received this time round as with every other time ive been. Always use them for my services and MOTs. Dropped car off before i went to work and by mid morning i had a text to say car was ready to collect. Went down after work and car was ready, pleasent staff, paid by card and went off on my jolly way!! For a woman in my 30s i have been in garages where they try and add things on or try and get more money from you. These guys though are completely honest and genuine and always made to feel completely comfortable. Thanks for a fab experience. Car feels great."
Friendly and helpful
"The staff were friendly and helpful. I cannot comment on the standard of the workmanship, but time will tell. The set up seemed very professional and well organised. I did book this garage online as it offered pick up and drop off of the car, as it turned out this, and my chosen appointment time, were not available. In future I’d bear this in mind in choosing a provider off this site as the convenience is important to me."
Easy to arrange
Great service / prices
"Had a few things done here. Always been very helpful, kept me updated on what was going on and the prices were good too."
Power Assisted Steering, or ‘PAS' as it is also known, is a mechanism that helps you to steer your car. In most vehicles, the PAS relies on a hydraulic system to aid turning the vehicle's wheels. If you have ever driven a car with no Power Steering you will have most certainly noticed the difference between having PAS and not. Power Steering used to be a luxury in certain vehicles, but nowadays it is almost standard in every type of vehicle.
In the early days of the automotive industry, power-assisted steering was a luxury and was only available in high-end vehicles. Most new cars now have it as standard. That’s because they’ve become heavier, with wider tyres and front wheel drive, and would be extremely difficult to drive without PAS. This makes a car not only more pleasant to drive, but safer to drive too.
There are two types of hydraulic power-assisted steering: rack & pinion and the recirculating ball. Rack & pinion is the most common. The recirculating ball is far less common and only really exists in vans and trucks. Both have high-pressure hoses that connect the steering rack to the two sides of the centre seal. One hose sends hydraulic fluid from the power-steering pump to the steering mechanism, while the other directs fluid back to the pump. When turned left or right, the steering wheel’s steering mechanism allows the hydraulic fluid to pass to respective side of the steering rack, pushing the seal and rack in the necessary direction.
Electric power-assisted steering is fully electric. The wheels of the car receive direct assistance from an electric motor which is mounted on either the steering rack or steering column or directly to the steering rack. Sensors decide how much assistance to apply at any time.
When hydraulic fluid lubricates and seals the power-steering pump and hoses to prevent corrosion it can leak or gradually become less effective, making it harder to turn the steering wheel. Typically, a mechanic will check hydraulic fluid levels during an annual service.
If the electric motor fails, power-assisted steering will stop working, so the motor would need replacing. As with any electrical system, software problems can occur, necessitating an update.
Fiat is an Italian automaker and part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles through its subsidiary FCA Italy S.p.A, the largest automobile manufacturer in Italy. The company was formed in January 2007 when Fiat reorganised its automobile business, and can trace its history back to 1899 when the first Fiat, or as it was called then, Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino automobile, was produced.
Fiat's main market is Europe, specifically in Italy. Historically successful at producing city cars and superminis, currently Fiat has a range of models focused on those two segments. Fiat doesn’t currently offer any large family car, nor an executive car - you can say they are pretty exclusively in the urban car camp.
This Italian brand offers cars with bags of character and style. They’ve even developed new engine technology, such as the “Twin Air” system, which has placed Fiat ahead of others in their field. A partnership with Mazda has boosted the range as well with the introduction of a rear-wheel drive convertible sports car.
