Brakes Northampton

When you start, you’ve got to stop. It’s common sense, but it’s why your brakes have to be working perfectly.

Anything but that, is asking for an accident. If you can’t stop suddenly or slow down when you need to, you’re setting yourself up for problems. 

An ABS light or brake light appearing on your dashboard, or a noise or juddering when breaking, all require urgent expert attention.

If you’re concerned about your car brakes in Northampton, you need to get them checked. Poor brakes are often the cause of avoidable accidents.

    Used road main garage to diagnose an oil leak on my land rover Freelander. Everybody I spoke to was very informative and helpful. They took the time to explain the fault and give me options that were in my best interest rather than most garages trying to just get your money! They have alot of knowledge when it comes to Landrovers and are very honest. Will be using again in the future
