"A stress-free day. My car was picked up early and returned at the end of the day. Invaluable when you are a single mum. I was kept informed all day and there were no problems. I can highly recommend."
"Explained everything when collected car and was carried out in a timely manner with the added bonus of being washed outside and foot wells hoovered!"
"I will recommend"
Great service, good price
"I booked a full service and MOT and this garage came back as the cheapest (by quite a long way). They carried both out over a few hours and gave me a call to update me on the progress. I booked in for a couple of small repairs the following week which was also a quick and straightforward process. I would definitely use this garage again."
"Booked a full service at a fixed price and was delighted with the work carried out and in particular the cost which was much cheaper than most of the other quotes i got.I decided to wait while the work was carried out and the waiting area was very comfortable with tv and free coffee machine.I was advised of a couple of jobs that need to be done in the near future but was not pressured in any way to return for the work to be carried out.My car keys were returned to me only after my car had been cleaned inside and out. Overall I could not fault this garage and I will certainly return in the future."
"Took my Toyota in for a service. Even prior to it, I got contacted by very friendly and professional reception staff and it only got better from there. Didn't need to get anything extra done at the time, but still got a thorough explanation of the service report and everything I'll need to keep an eye on."
"They are really quick and helpful. Open and fair with repairs."
"Very good garage, professional and helpful staff. For 100% coming back"
Great service and pricing
"I wasn't expecting to get my car washed but supprised they did this after my service and mot"
"Excellent service yet again. Friendly staff & extremely efficient service. Highly recommended."
"The day before my M.O.T was due, my coil spring snapped, I phoned Dunnington Motor Care, and they were happy to do this on the same day as the M.O.T, a very fair price , work was done quickly and very satisfactorily, I strongly recommend these guy's."
"Brilliant garage so easy to book in response was fast very MOT was given a time slot and was completed within an hour great value for money really helpful friendly staff you can't ask more than that"
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 York. 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.
