Very efficient and helpful. Your Customer Service very good with a call to see I had received quotes and was satisfied. My only disappointment was that although several garages were asked to quote only Luton Automotive replied!! They were very good but I had hoped that diagnosis would be followed by repair and problem over. I was asked to ring VW to see if there had been a recall -there had not - and now LA have to source the part and come back to fix, so I'm incurring extra cost! Have no choice as I'm unable to drive my car as power steering cuts out!
Luton Automotive quoted the lowest price, and provided excellent service!! Communication was quick, was offered a courtesy car for an extra £10. The price paid for the job was the price quoted. They collected my car at my work and dropped it off at my home, both in Stevenage. The car was ready in a day, even less. Was able to arrange a pickup and dropoff time to suit my schedule. Couldn't have been easier or more pleasant to work with. Work even comes with a warranty. Nice guys, great service, definitely 100% recommend!!!
Would defiantly recommend these gents! Very helpful in taking time to do my side steps and a great service!! Will be back if anything else ever needs doing.

Your brakes are extremely important to the safe operation of your vehicle. The job of your brakes is to bring your car to a stop as quickly as possible and if they are not working correctly, the stopping distance will increase and the likeliness of a collision will increase.
Brakes are made up of many different components and repairs could be needed on any one of them. Brakes consist of Brake Calipers, Brake Discs, Brake Pads, Brake Fluid and the Handbrake. The brake calipers squeeze the brake pads against the disc, this creates friction that prevents the disc from spinning and thus the wheels stop moving. New brakes cost different amounts depending on your car, manfacturers will recommend different parts for different cars. Depending on your vehicle, different components will be used. For example, larger vehicles will use discs with ventilation as there is a greater build up of heat when stopping a larger vehicle. Because of this costs will vary from vehicle to vehicle.
The brakes on the front of the car usually contribute the most to bringing a car to a stop as the weight of the car is thrown forward each time the vehicle stops.
Different vehicle have different brake systems and use slightly different parts.
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.
A brake change can vary in cost depending on what exactly you are having done but the average price is around £180. A brake pad replacement will cost less than replacing brake pads and discs. This is because the cost of brake pads is less than the cost to replace brake pads and brake discs. Brake discs replacement is more expensive because the brake discs cost more than brake pads and usually brake pads are changed at the same time brake discs are changed.
New brake pads can vary in price depending on the brand used, so make sure you ask your mechanic what brand of parts they are using. Remember, cheapest is often not the best!
A brake service is offered by some garages and often comprises of a quick check of all the components involved with powering your brakes before concluding whether or not replacing brake pads, brake discs or both is the best course of action. Often a brake service will cost you nothing but can cost a small amount for the garages time. But if the garage finds a problem, they will often waive the brake service cost if you have the worked completed with them. The brake repair cost is what makes it worthwhile the garage waiving the fee for the brake service.
