When a car is moving over rough or uneven surfaces, shock absorbers help to stop the car bouncing or vibrating too much and ensure that the tyres have full contact with the road surface all the time.
Enormous demands are placed on certain parts of cars when being driven. Shock absorbers are found on a car’s suspension, where they take the strain of all the constant bouncing up and down of the vehicle. Most cars’ wheels also have them. Worn shock absorbers will affect the car’s handling and braking, which can reduce your safety.
Shock absorbers have a piston inside them that moves up and down in line with the suspension and, depending on the vehicle, hydraulic fluid or air chambers absorb the energy from the road caused by vibration.
Straight out of the Swedish city of Gothenberg, Volvo has become well-known for pushing out safe, reliable cars, making them one of the vehicles of choice for families around the globe. Initially made all the way back in 1924 to withstand the rigours of Sweden’s rough roads and cold temperatures, you could say they’ve come a long way!
The current Volvo range focusses mainly on traditional vehicle platforms, including hatchbacks, saloons, SUVs and estate cars. The ‘XC’ models cater to drivers who regularly get their cars a bit muddy and dirty off-road, while the ‘Cross Country’ versions are available for people going for a more traditional combination of on and off-road ability
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Darlington or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
