Very helpful staff, also made me aware of other problems with my vehicle and offered military discount. Very happy with the service will use this garage again
Oil change was done professionally
Really friendly staff, told me about the process and how long a MOT and Full Service would take. Rang me to keep me up to date. I had two advisories on my car and when they rang me to tell me, they did not put any pressure on me to have them fixed at their garage. You get about 6 pages of information if you have a full service which I found really useful and have never received at more well known garages. I would definitely recommend this garage and will return next year.
Full service, regas and fuel filter. Good service, will use again.
Good experience from booking to the actual MOT. Recommend this garage

Absolutely delighted with the first class service I received today. James and the team took my car in for an MOT which I urgently needed doing and it was back with me within a couple of hours. I found them professional, friendly and the over all price with repairs was fantastic. I would not hesitate to go there again. Thanks.

Really good customer service. There was am unexpected fault found on my car when it was taken in for cam belt replacement which I paid extra for the part but the labour was free. They kept me updated throughout and even managed to sort me a little run around car at short notice as my car was undriveable and I needed to get to work. Customer service was brilliant. As soon as they received the new part required for my car it was fitted immediately and ready for collection later that day.
great service ,had my range rover air con regassed ...now blowing ice cold ,all done in less than an hour ..great stuff ,cheers
Managed to fit me in straight away
Excellent service ended up getting brake pads and discs replaced so quick and easily no issues will definitely be going back
I thought I needed new brakes because of the noise they were making. But they didn't. Paul could easily have changed the lot and I'd have been none the wiser. I really appreciate the honesty. Thanks again!!
Ended up needing a bit more work than expected but was done ordered in and completed the following day. Friendly enough service. Would have appreciated an explanation of the work done and the ability to pay by card but would use again. Thanks very much.
Very competitive price! Friendly, professional and it was done in under an hour on my driveway! Would definitely recommend full throttle autos!

A brake, or brake pad is a system that safely enables a car to stop. Brakes get rid of the kinetic energy that helps the car move, which is done by using force of friction to convert this motion of energy into heat. Your car's braking system is made up of the following components: Brake discs, which spin with your car's wheels, Brake Pads, which push on the discs to slow the car, Brake Calipers which hold, and push, the pads, Brake Lines (or 'Hoses') which carry Brake Fluid, and your Brake Master Cylinder and Servo, which work to amplify the effort you use when pushing the brake pedal. Wear or failure of any one of these components will cause braking problems, requiring repair.
Modern cars have brakes on all four wheels which are operated by a hydraulic system and are made up of several components all of which are subject to stress which could result in breakage.
The front brakes in a car are typically the ones which play the greater part in bringing a car to stop as the weight of the car is thrown forward every time the vehicle comes to a stop.
There are different systems used for braking from one car to the next which suits the needs of the vehicle size and function.
The common hydraulic system uses fluid to apply pressure to pistons in the car close to its wheels to bring the car to a halt.
Some cars also have power brake assistance which helps to reduce the amount of effort required to apply stopping power.
If you need to have your brakes repaired there are several issues that could have caused the problem and several things that could be affected.
If you suspect you need your brakes repaired but your car is still drivable, there are some symptoms which could give you clues as to what the problem is.
The brakes are often the noisiest part of a car if there is an issue which means you should be able to hear a problem which cannot be said of many other broken car parts. Therefore, noticing the need for a car brake repair should be obvious. But you can check faulty brake symptoms here.
Brake pads are a critical component of a car and a vehicle cannot come to a halt without them functioning properly. Brake pads are fitted to the brake calipers which push the pads into the brake discs which are fitted to a car wheel. When a car is moving, the pads grip the discs to slow down the wheel and thus slow the car down.
A high amount of heat energy is created from the resulting friction as explained above and over time, this will wear brake pads down.
Brake pad replacement is a common job, the work to remove a worn-down-set is not complex so if you require a brake pad replacement, the repair will not be a lengthy one.
If you would like to understand how to tell when your brakes need servicing read our dedicated guide.
Brake discs are fitted to the car wheel itself and they are gripped by the brake pads.
Brake discs replacement is more expensive; the parts are more expensive than pads. Often pads are placed at the same time the discs are replaced.
If a mechanic advises you to replace your brake discs, they will likely suggest replacing the pads at the same time due to a the low cost of the part and the little extra labour time needed.
The cost of brake pad replacement may vary depending on the car make and model. This is because there are different sizes of brake pads and the cost increases as they get bigger. For example, a Land Rover will require a bigger set of brake pads as opposed to a Fiat Punto.

If you specifically require brake disc replacement, the work will take a similar amount of time to a brake pad replacement.
However, as highlighted above, the cost will be more expensive that pads due to the parts pricing.
Brake pads are changed by removing the wheel and unscrewing the bolts which hold the part in place. The part is then simply taken off the brake caliper and a new brake pad is fitted. The same process will be applied for each of the pads that need to be replaced.
There are many other common issues which can arise with the braking system which are not connected to brake pads and discs issues. The brake lines are susceptible to leakage as brake fluid can leak from the system if rust is untreated. The master cylinder is also a part of the braking system which can become faulty. If you would like to understand more we have a dedicated page for brake repairs.
