"Everything was done to my satisfaction, will use again"
"All staff are really helpful. Car returned in immaculate condition"
"Good experience over all."
"Always have both cars mot and services done here, great value and fab staff....... A***"

Free Health Check
"Booked in easy. Free Health Check took no more than 30 mins from arriving to leaving. No faults found, so very happy."
"I really wasn't sure if I had picked the right garage being new to the area. The work was booked on line and I received a phone call to check on what I required. I was informed that the garage would contact me before doing any work over and above our agreement. The next question was a surprise, "did I want my car collected and returned?" It was a surprise. The job was done in good time and the car returned. I also had tyres fitted the following day and the car was collected and returned. I thought my local garage in London was at the top of the game but HMG have exceeded all my expectations with a decent price, and came up with a great service that would be difficult to beat, in my opinion. They have certainly got my future work."
Good interim service
"USed book my garage for the first time and used the reviews given to choose a garage. The price was competitive and the majority of the reviews were positive. Easy to book and I had the option of a free courtesy car, collection and delivery or a lift which was good. On taking the car into the garage, the staff there were a little lethargic, but told me what I needed. They took as long as they had estimated and then contacted me to say that the work was finished. The guy behind the counter when I collected it was extremely helpful and very friendly. Very happy with the work and with the price."
"Moved my time to suit me, helpful advice and did the work in the time they said."
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.
Boasting a lineup that includes one of the best-selling cars in the UK (the Qashqai), Nissan is a company known for being experimental. The Qashqai is noted as being one of the first true crossover SUVs. Alongside it, Nissan also offers the battery-powered Leaf, among lots of other cheap and cheerful options, such as the ever popular Micra, and the Note.
Since 1999, Nissan has been part of the Renault–Nissan Alliance, a partnership between Nissan and French automaker Renault. As of 2013, Renault holds a 43.4% voting stake in Nissan, while Nissan holds a 15% non-voting stake in Renault. Carlos Ghosn serves as CEO of both companies.
Selling cars under the Nissan, Infiniti, and Datsun brands, Nissan was the sixth largest automaker in the world behind Toyota, GM, Volkswagen Group, Hyundai, and Ford in recent years; however they are the leading Japanese brand in China, Russia, and Mexico.
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 Skipton. 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.
