"Happy with work and only took a morning - would use garage again"
Would use again
"Found on CheckATrade due to the positive reviews and I was very happy I chose Shergold. Family run, pleasant staff, excellent value. As a young female with little mechanical knowledge it is important to me that garage staff explain work/repairs clearly without being patronising, which I felt this garage met. I will use Shergold again in future and recommend them."
Great helpful service

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.
Coming from the Korean word for “modernity”, Hyundai was founded as a small construction firm in South Korea in 1947, but didn’t become the Hyundai Motor Company until 20 years later. Currently, Hyundai is the fourth largest vehicle manufacturer in the world, operating the world's largest integrated automobile manufacturing facility, with cars sold in nearly 200 countries. That’s serious business!
The company is known for building a fairly traditional set of saloons, city cars, SUVs, and hatchbacks, as well as a very large i800 MPV.
Both the Tucson and the Santa Fe offer a good combination of practicality, a commanding driving position and decent value for money in the face of fierce competition. The compact yet surprisingly spacious i10 supermini is one of Hyundai’s highest rated cars.
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.
