"Good service, fair price"
"Couldn't fault the service but was given some recommendations which needed doing. I was given a quote which seemed quite high so went to 2 other garages. I took my car into both and they both said that the work didnt need to be done! Very disappointing."
"Love the new easy to use on line booking system for MOT . Great dervice"
"Efficient service job done on time, would recommend ."
Always a great experience
"Been taking my car to BCL for years. Always top level of service, friendly staff and quick turn around. Could not fault them."
"was phoned and asked if wanted other bits done that they found. really happy with the work"
Great service, as always.
"Craig managed to fit my MOT in at short notice and did it whilst I waited. Excellent service."
"The staff are always friendly and accommodating! This time was no exception. I wouldn't go anywhere else!"
"This is the second time I have used Smile and I have been very happy with their service. They picked the car up from home, kept me informed during the day, gave it a full service, dealt with several issues and returned it promptly in the afternoon. Excellent."
Always a great service!
"I've been going to Fergussons for about 7 years now, and they are always very accommodating with fitting me in, and provide an excellent service every time. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone!"
"I’ve taken my car to this garage as they’re friendly and as a woman doesn’t try to pull the wool over your eyes. Very honest"
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.
Known for their sensible, reliable range of cars, Honda is less varied than some of the brands out there, but still offers a thoughtful collection of very well made vehicles. The world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer since 1959, Honda joined the ranks and became the second largest Japanese automobile manufacture in 2001, and was eighth largest in the world as recently as 2011.
Honda was also the first Japanese manufacturer to release a pure luxury brand, Acura, in 1986. With vehicles ranging from the ultra-family friendly, practical CR-V and HR-V to the unique Type R, and the iconic four-wheeled NSX supercar, Honda has something for everyone.
