Suspension

Book Free Suspension Check

The suspension system is a vital part of a vehicle; it has a direct impact on the steering, road holding and braking capabilities of the car.

On the suspension system there are many moving parts, the main component of which is rubber that can dry out over a period of time and can crack and perish. In the worst situation the rubber components can split.

You may be able to recognise when a component has become defective, some of the effects could be:

Symptoms

  • When pulling away from a standstill a knocking noise may occur from the front of the vehicle.
  • When travelling along uneven surfaces, i.e. speed humps or bumpy roads, once again a knocking noise may be heard from either end of the vehicle and the ride in the vehicle may be an uncomfortable one.
  • On a straight road, i.e. a motorway, if one side at the front of the vehicle there is a defective component, the vehicle will drift or pull to the defective side.

An important part of the suspension is the shock absorbers, these are usually hydraulic or gas filled. They are essential to control the bounce on the vehicle and to ensure the tyres are kept firmly on the road. Damaged and worn shock absorbers can reduce the braking efficiency, cause poor cornering and tyre wears.

It is very important to have regular checks on your vehicle, whether it is every 6 or 12 months, to ensure that the ride comfort and suspension system are kept at an optimum level. The suspension system is fully checked over as part of our routine servicing to make sure that you remain as safe and comfortable as possible. With all our technicians being highly trained and fully experienced you can rest assured that you and your vehicle are in safe hands.

Free suspension checks and advice are available from our trained technicians, just call in or contact us.

    I used Harrow Service Centre for the first time for a service and MOT - I am always wary of trying new places for car servicing having been treated poorly elsewhere previously - and was pleasantly surprised. HSC were very friendly, helpful, professional and the service provided seemed thorough and good value.

    We had been using the same service centre for several years but they recently closed. The initial attraction of the Harrow Service Centre was primarily that it was Bosch approved which gave us confidence that we could expect the same quality of expertise as our old garage. Added to that, there are plenty of nearby options for public transport links.We have an ageing diesel BMW 3 series. We would have updated it some time ago but, of course, diesels have very limited trade in value these days. It is basically sound, but has lots of little niggles as time goes on.It went in this time to have a problem with a tyre and the run flat indicator sorted (and also a rear bulb replaced). The service received was highly professional and the problems were diagnosed and fixed promptly at exactly the sort of cost we would expect to pay. They also warned us of an approaching longer term problem and gave advice as to the time frame within which this would need to be fixed. This is exactly what we look for in a garage and gives us confidence they are giving the car a thorough overall inspection outside any immediate problems.We were extremely impressed with HSC and they will certainly be getting our custom again when the annual service and MOT comes up later this year.One point to raise. There is plenty of parking but it is tight. Ask them to park your car for collection either pointing out from the bays or toward the road if it is parked along the side.
