Very friendly people who kept me informed all the way through as to what work was needed, costs etc. They will send videos of the work they think is needed to prove it’s all legit too. Very happy and will use again."
"Very happy with service Recommend"
Great service as always
"Have now used several times and the service and quality is consistently excellent-and very good value."
"Booked online,quick handover off car, some minor things needed to pass M.O.T, but was contacted beforehand, and informed of the cost. I have used Sai's Garage before and will continue to do so. As it's hard to find a trusted mechanic these days."
"Dealer service for my van, at my local dealers at a lot less than they quoted just a week before. Very happy!"
"+ Same quality of service as main dealer - Would like to have been informed about the air-con service before carrying out the work."
"I thought this is a lexus centre, however it isn't!"
"I took my car for my annual car service. The check was done quickly and they rang me to inform me of work that needed doing for the near future. They kept to the rockets that had been quoted online which was good. The only thing is my air con was regassed and then went on to smell bad as my filter needed changing. I was surprised no one picked this up as I smelt the smell when I picked up my car but thought it was due to something else until I used my air con 2 days later. They quickly sorted my filter when I came back later that week but it potentially could’ve been sorted in one go. Otherwise great service all round."
Efficient and nice
"Was no need for repairs other than bulb. Was very quick and polite when booking."
"Served quickly and was consulted at every stage"
"Honest and helpful I will use them again"
"Booked one day for work to be done the next; situation changed so needed car by 3 pm; not a problem at all. A fault I didn't mention was fixed. MoT was done with sensible advisories and no "You have to have this done to pass MoT". Car was collected and delivered promptly and with great courtesy. Totally unexpectedly, car was cleaned inside and out. I cannot check the internal work and it is too early to know if everything is right but I felt happy about the work in exactly the way I felt UNhappy with a different garage the year before."
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.
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 London. 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.
