A Wee Gem of a Garage!
"A great wee find. My wife & I had bought Daihatsu cars for 20 years & used the dealer in Troon for all our repairs/servicing until the owner retired in 2017. I had decided to use Seedhill Service Station for my full annual service & MOT due at the end of March because of their web site special price offer, but had to use them earlier when my brakes started acting up. A great wee crew - knowledgeable, very friendly, and happy to take time to explain what problems have been found & what they'll do to fix them and the costs involved. Also, my wife was delighted they chaps don't talk down to females. Will definitely use them for my service/MOT!"
"Very polite & efficient service, brilliant in what they did would highly recommend"
"100% happy with Westbere Garage. Rang around for a same day MOT- only Garage in the area happy to slot me in. Really friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic value for money. Definitely gained a long term customer here!"
"I am happy with the service I received and the gentlemen I spoke to were very friendly and completed the work with no hassle and showed great workmanship. I thought they were very helpful, (kept me informed while I waited for my wing mirror to be delivered). I will be going back next time when I need work doing....especially as they give you a loyalty card and wouldn't grumble about the price either! ;)"
"Really pleased with my experience. They came and collected the car and dropped it back for me. The staff were friendly and helpful. I did call after 3 hours for an update as I was getting nervous about the amount of time and not hearing anything (but that's just me!) Thank you All Cars!"
"I was taken seriously (an unusual experience for a woman at at garage). John was honest about his knowledge of my very unusual car. He passed me on to a mechanic who was experienced with my car. John told me not to listen to anyone who said my car needed a service. He was honest, very efficient and very supportive."
"Brilliant, they went through the car thoroughly, I can now drive assured the car is safe to be on the road"
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.
Daihatsu is the oldest of all the Japanese car manufacturers, harking all the way back to 1907 when it began trading as the Hatsudoki Seizo Company ltd. In 1953 they began exporting models, by this time as Daihatsu, although in the last twenty years or so these markets have contracted, and the marque hasn’t sold cars in the UK since 2011. These days Daihatsu is owned by Toyota, despite which there are still plenty of Daihatsus on British roads. The most frequently seen models are the mini SUV Terios, and the Materia minivan.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Aberdeen or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
