"The garage did the annual service, updated the car software and a free checkup that came with a video of the underneath of my car as they checked it and a full list of items that had been checked so that I know everything is spot on and I can keep the videos to refer to each year. The garage has a nice waiting area with free hot and cold drinks, a TV and plenty of free WIFI."

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.
There are two types of power steering: rack-and-pinion and the recirculating ball. Rack-and-pinion is the most common system. Although not as widespread, the recirculating ball system is still in use, mainly on vans and trucks.
In both systems, two high-pressure hoses connect the steering rack to both sides of the centre seal. One hose directs high pressure hydraulic fluid from the power steering pump to the steering mechanism, while the other allows fluid to flow back to the pump. When the steering wheel is turned left or right, the steering mechanism allows the hydraulic fluid to pass to that side of the rack. That pressure assists the vehicle's steering power by pushing the seal and rack in one direction or the other.
Driving in the North East
With its vibrant major cities of Newcastle, Durham and Sunderland, the North East also has some of the most breathtaking drives in the country. The Northumberland coast is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, harbouring destinations such as the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and Dunstanburgh Castle. The easternmost parts of the North East are also among the driest in the UK, although snow and ice can frequently cause traffic disruption in the winter months.
