"It wasn’t bad but it could have been better, they are not very friendly at the garage, The nearside dimlight was not working and one of the wiper was a bit worn off. & he classified these two as major fault in the car, anyhow I ask him how much he would charge me to change the light, & he goes to me “ I have no idea” as I have never change these kind of lights previously, I think they are not very experienced & finally when I went for my re testing, I waited and when he got back, I asked him, has the car passed the MOT? He goes to me I think so, & then he gave me this funny look and said the car “ the car has a bit of mileage on it “ i felt uncomfortable with those people, they are not very good with customer service and all! But the price £35 is excellent, book my garage was very good & very helpful! I will use book my garage again but may be not the same MOT centre."

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.
Another German car manufacturer, the brand is best known for luxury automobiles (alongside buses, coaches, and trucks), although altogether Mercedes Benz is one of the most recognised automotive brands in the world. With the slogan “The best or Nothing”, you know they are dedicated to creating the best vehicles out there.
Mercedes has long been synonymous with a certain class of premium vehicle. Today they offer a wide range of cars covering the gamut of offerings, from compact to ultra-luxurious, with something for everyone. They’re also known for their sports cars, providing a perfect mix of comfort and performance - even if they aren’t the fastest in the game.
At the bigger end of things, you have the full range of Mercedes SUVs known as ‘GL’. But it’s not all fun and games, and you can find something much more practical in their large spectrum of hatchbacks, saloons, coupes, family cars, and the van-sized V-Class.
