A1 happy to reccommend
"Helpful and timely, honest and straightforward service basically no nonsense and no silly buggers"
Great customer service
"Very happy with the service. The staff was really helpful. I have booked there because I have seen the previous review. no regrer. I recommend."
"Quick turn around for the MOT and time slot was too my convenient."
Couldn't be Better
"Staff has been very courteous and appear to be very honest ( Bearing in mind the reputation of dishonesty some Garages have) even though I cannot check the quality of work."
"Car feels brand new"
Great Service and Value
"I have used MC Autos a few times now after finding out that my latest Peugeot dealership were charging through the roof. I have continued to use them ever since."
"I decided to choose this company due to the good reviews but it seemed I had bad luck with them or they were not in the mood to service my car. Customer service needs much improvement, the mechanic gave me several quotations to write down, first of all he was giving me quotes with such speed that I was unable to write everything in one go and when I kindly asked him to repeat, he sounded quite annoyed and repeated with a rude tone. This has given me a bad impression so this is my first and last time I'll be using sovereign group and i won't recommend it to anyone either."
"Easy and polite service and very quick"
"Really helpful and friendly. Rearranged appointment for following day after I was unable to get to them on the arranged day or let them know until late afternoon. Quality of work and value is only 3 stars because i can’t honestly rate these when it’s only been 1 day and just over 1 mile of driving since work was done. I never give 5 stars in reviews. 5 is reserved for perfection."
"Happy with the work."
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.
