Great se vice
"Good service and kept informed no additional work needed"
"Exceptional garage. From picking up my car to bringing it back. Being kept fully informed to discussing the bill all the lads were brilliant, I can't speak highly enough of them, helpful and extreamly polite. Would not hesitate to bring my car back here again, or to recommend it to friends and family. Thanks again chaps."
"I used Euro Garage for the first time for MOT. My car failed, which I expected, so I left it over the weekend to get it repaired. I was offered great price, and car was ready in time as promised. Communication was also great both by phone and email. Will definitely return."
Great company/good value
"Really good customer service. Very helpful."
"Booked in via the online system. Really easy to use. Called the morning of the booking to confirm and went through some rough prices. Dropped the car off in the morning. Picked up the next day, but was ready the same day so could have been picked up then (my choice not to). Spoke to the guy on the phone regarding the repairs that needed doing and how much it would cost. Very happy with the service."
"Booked online over Christmas, called on the morning to double check they were ready for my car. They were, told me the hourly rate for labour and directed me onto their website for a rough idea of the costs. Called me to inform me of the price and broke down all the costs for me. Work was done very quickly considering everything that needed doing. Very impressed and will be a repeat customer."

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.
