"The service was carried out to a high standard and I was kept informed at all times"
"Kind helpful staff, great value for money"
"Didn't have to wait long, and wasn't sold any extras, staff was friendly also!"
"Highly recommend this garage. All my family use it. Only problem this time was that I booked online and requested a curtesy which I did not receive. Luckily I had family to pick me up."
"Steve from PCC called me straight after I booked my car in on their website and he arranged to collect my car and confirmed my online booking. There was no hassle and they called after inspecting my car to let me know exactly what work was needed and provided quotes. The service and repair was carried out the same day and my car driven back to me. I would recommend this garage and will be using them again."
Great service, good price
"I took my three-year old Audi A3 for its oil change and first MOT. Checking in was so easy - all the paperwork was ready on the front desk. At lunch-time I got a call to say that it had failed the MOT due to a nearly bald tyre. They quoted me a very reasonable price for a new one, ordered it to come on that afternoon's van and my car was ready by about 4. Quick checkout and that was that, a very happy customer. Much better than Audi in Harold Wood!"

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.
With a reputation for building stylish and efficient cars, Audi has become one of the most popular premium car makes in the UK and is known as one of the best-selling luxury automobiles in the world. An extensive catalogue of beautiful, practical and well-built cars provides something to suit almost every need and nearly every budget.
At the cheaper end of the spectrum, you’ll find the Audi A1, while on the other end you’ll find the stunning Audi R8, a “supercar” loaded with a V10 engine and happily existing alongside the likes of premium makes such as Ferrari.
A range of SUVs known as ‘Q’, and Quattro four-wheel drive options on many cars cater to the off-road market, while the hybrid technology known as e-tron has helped cut costs across the board for a large number of Audi drivers.
What do you need from your garage?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Llanelli. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
