"Easy to book service and MOT. Staff were excellent and sourced all required parts quickly and economically. Also repaired some bodywork damage with no problems. Would strongly recommend."
"All good. Efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. Even came in at below the quoted price. That’s rare! Highly Recommended. I’ve been taking my cars to KJL for years."
"Very positive. Thumbs up! You do everything from home. They take your car from your driveway and bring back the same day. Very impressive."
As good as ever!
"KJL have recently moved premises and the new place look so much more professional, They’re approachable, friendly and clearly know what they’re talking about. Some light humour is most welcome. I’ve used these guys a few times now and frankly I can’t imagine using anyone else in the future."

Very good service ,
"Happy with service"
Positive first impression
"K J L Motors offers a pick-up service, which I found really helpful: they collected my car at my work and returned it around 5.35. I would have appreciated a call by 5 to let me know when to expect them and whether they had found any major issues. I called myself and was told they would be there in 15, which they were. I was told in passing that one or two of my tires was in need of replacing in the next month or two. This was helpful, but a note to the same effect on my invoice would have been great, both to instil trust in the statement and as a reminder. I can't really pronounce on the quality of work as this was simply a service, but I had wondered whether they would have noticed that my dashboard clock was off/not set correctly and blinking (the clock keeps resetting during frosty spells), as my previous garage did. They didn't, which is no biggie, but would have made me give them 5 stars for attentiveness. All in all, I am hopeful about this garage, and will probably take my car there for its next MOT."
"Very happy with the service: borrowed their courtesy car, and they were quick and efficient with the service. I will go there again!"
Great customer service
"Kept me informed, v transparent. Will definitely use their service again."
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.
Cambridge is situated about 50 miles north-east of London in an area of level and relatively low-lying terrain just south of the Fens.
