did what was needed
"Great service efficient and well priced"
"I was very impressed from the moment my car was collected. I could tell.immediately upon driving my car that a great job was done. Very impressed."
MOT Carried out
"Another perfect service from Kilgannon garage, allways use this place now, handy location and good prices."
"Again, excellent service and communication. Helpful as always."
"Full Service done. The cost, Labour and workmanship have been excellent. However the garage can better manage its time as I was given a time appointment on the day of the service rather than some time before."
"I booked this online, but when I arrived at the garage, the booking had not come through. Despite that and having a full work diary for the day, they still fitted me in and were very helpful. I would recommend booking direct with the garage in future."
"Very happy, car feels like new again. Williams garage are happy to go the extra mile to check things and apply intelligence to what work needs doing."
Fast service, great help.
"Asked to be informed if my car's MOT failed before starting the service so I could see if I could afford the repair (if any) and the service. The gentleman that took my keys ensured this is what they always do. Got a call to say my car needed two new tyre's and failed the MOT for it. When asked about the service, it was already done..... Had to pay for two new tyre's on top of the service. Fair enough, it's not the garage's fault and they were fast enough to fit the tyres and ensure everything was okay afterwards. Ideally I would have left the service for a month or two till I could afford it though."
"Very happy with the work done. Staff were very friendly and helpful"
Great Service but...
"I had a full service done. I was emailed an appointment time on the day which which was inconvenient. Woman told me to bring it in for the appointment time and she would make sure I was seen to whilst I wait however no woman was seen at the desk (appears to be offsite call centre I believe). Dropped the car off and sat around for a while, guy told me to come back for closing time which was 4 hours away. The price of the service and the quality (so far) have been excellent however they need to better manage their appointment times and advise an exact time upon booking and also advise collection times so people know whether to wait around or plan a time filler. I will be back though due to prices and quality of the workmanship."
"You came highly recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. I was booked in for an MOT at 9am I had to make some changes to my day and the garage were very accommodating and was able to change my time very last minute to accommodate the changes. My car was finished within the hour and the mechanic was very informative talking through the advisories and making sure I understood the information. Definitely now my go to garage."
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.
The second largest US-based automaker, Ford is a brand known around the world, with a number of strong performing vehicles in its ranks. No surprise there, as the company has been making cars since 1903. As the most popular of the North American brands in the UK, the Ford Focus and the Fiesta are probably well known to almost every driver on the road.
Popular for those looking for subcompact or compact cars, Ford makes a variety of configurations across a spectrum of performance standards. The last of Ford’s British car manufacturing plants was shut down in 2002, but you’ll still find Ford dealerships across the country - with garages that know how to deal with them as a consequence.
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.
