Always great service
"Great service, really awkward car problem due to being a hybrid. They lent us a car so we didn't have to struggle on the school run. Work was completed quickly and to a great standard."
A very good experience
"I was kept fully informed and well advised during the period the garage had my car. No pressure placed in any way by the guy who dealt with my booking. Avery good experience."
"all good - I am very likely to come back and would have no hesitation in recommending this garage."
"Have been taking cars here for years and will be back again"
Value for money
"Only problem was that after booking using the online option and receiving a telephone call to confirm the booking on arrival at the garage there was no record of the booking."
"Top work all round"

Great service and MOT
"Great quality and a friendly speedy service"
"Very friendly service and good quality"
Best in the business
"Online booking of Interim Service was straight forward. Also asked for a courtesy car is Fergussons Sutton is a bit out of the way public transport wise for me. Although the courtesy car was returned late, Russel did do his best to ask the client to bring the car in as there is another client waiting. Service and MOT was done within a day, but I could not make it for their closing time and they had no hassle for me to collect the next morning. Unfortunately I am always weary about this trade as I have no foot to stand on when you take a car into a Service Centre and they tell you that there is things that needs to be replaced for it to pass MOT. You can only but take their word for it unless you have a lot of spare time and money for 2nd/3rd opinions. Anyway, no such issues with Furgesson. I have serviced my car there the last couple of years and wish I new about them earlier. Highly recommended."
"The guys booked me in with very little notice, sorted the MOT issues & got me my car back ready for the school run!!! Friendly, helpful & informative.. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks guys."
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.
One of the largest car makers in the world, Toyota offers vehicles for nearly every budget and need. Its huge range consists of everything from small city cars like the Aygo to the off-roader Land Cruiser.
Toyota played a hugely important role in making hybrid vehicles as successful as they are today, with the Prius being found on many a city street around the world. But what about the next step? Well, the hydrogen fuel cell-powered Toyota Mirai could become the new normal as far as eco-friendly driving is concerned - but we’ll have to wait and see!
