It is an unfortunate fact of life that over time accidents can occur and cars may breakdown. While we all try to take the right preventative measures to avoid this happening, the fact remains that it can and may happen.
At The Prasads Automotive Ltd using the latest tools and equipment, coupled with our vast knowledge should the worst happen to you and you suffer an accident or a breakdown, we will strive to get you back on the road as soon as practicably possible with a cost effective solution, without compromising on quality of workmanship.
You may want to check your braking system before a MoT, a long journey, or just as part of your on-going maintenance routine.
The Prasads Automotive Ltd carries out diagnostic and brake inspection that guides your next brake replacement.
The inspection includes the measurement of wear on brake pads, discs and drums. We like to provide the best possible advice to help you keep the condition of your braking system up to a safe standard.
The result of the inspection is recorded on a brake report together with a quote of any required work.
The Wheel Alignment or tracking is important to your safety while maximising on your tyre life for good road holding and handling.
A small knock of a kerb or driving through a pot hole can result in misalignment. At The Prasads Automotive Ltd we use the latest Bosch multi camera technology to test and re-align your wheels, steering, tracking and geometry. This ensures your car drives straight ahead with a centred steering wheel and maximising your tyre service life.
This is important because wheels that are out of balance generally produce an uncomfortable vibration and leads to premature wearing of suspension and steering components, rotating parts and tyres.
Correctly balanced wheels help to eliminate vibration and avoid the premature wear caused by an imbalanced wheel.
A sign that your wheels may be out of balance is when your steering wheel or car starts to shake or vibrate at certain speeds.
A driver may not always sense an imbalance at the steering wheel. It could be present with but dampened by the vehicle weight. This is why balancing is equally important for both front and rear wheels.
As a result of wheel balancing, you should notice a smoother ride and better wear from your tyres, again saving you time and money.
With high performance vehicles and modern bigger wheels, balancing becomes even more critical and necessary for these wheels. At The Prasads Automotive Ltd we use the latest technology machines to achieve this.
Many of us use air-con or climate control in our car, and like other systems of your car, the air-conditioning system also needs regular maintenance to keep it working efficiently.
More than ten per cent of air-con gas permeates from the air-con system every year, reducing the efficiency and impeding operation. Manufacturers recommend your air-con system is serviced every two years.
This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing. Air-con systems that are not fully recharged are less effective and therefore they work harder which then puts more strain on the compressor and engine, the end result is your vehicle burns more fuel.
The Prasads Automotive Ltd offers a complete air conditioning service, which also includes a system bacterial clean, keeping your car environment hygienic and prevents unpleasant odours, while keeping the system performance efficient.
