It should go without saying that a problem with the brakes on a car is not an issue to take lightly, and yet, like with many things, people will sometimes put off taking action on what seems to be a minor issue.
Any issue with your car’s brakes is one to treat as a serious concern, and if it turns out to be a minor issue – great, but the old adage “better safe than sorry” could not be more appropriate to any part of your vehicle than the brake system.
The good news is that you don’t need to be a trained mechanic to spot warning signs with your brakes, and if you have even the slightest concern then call MD Solutions, and we will get one of our team out to you at your nearest convenience.
While modern cars have a helpful brake light that will illuminate to indicate an issue, there are other telltale signs to look out for. If it feels like you need to push the brake pedal further in order to slow down, or if it takes longer to stop than previously, then this could be an indication of a variety of problems, from wearing on the brake pad or rotor, to a problem with the master cylinder.
There are several other areas within the brake system that could need repairing or replacing, and while you don’t need to worry about what is causing a problem – that’s our job – you do need to take action if you notice any common symptoms of a brake issue.
If you hear a grinding or screeching sound when applying the brakes, notice the car dragging to the side when braking, or see fluid underneath your car when it’s parked – give us a call! You might well get to the bottom of that hill faster without brakes, but ideally we want you to get there in one piece!
Mario turned up looking professional in uniform with an immaculate van, inspiring confidence he had high standards. He fitted a battery and programmed car brain in a mini cooper I was minding efficiently and quickly. He also explained after care. Very pleasant and trustworthy chap. Will use the service again when next in a mechanical rut! One caveat: I did have to buy the battery from Eurocarparts as it was considerably cheaper than the one quoted from MD but Mario was still happy to fit it. Many thanks.
Excellent. The kind of garage you look for. Had my work van serviced and tyres changed by Mario. All done to a high standard and in good time, I won’t be going anywhere else for my work vehicles or personal vehicles anymore. Thank you
Mario came out late one evening to bleed the fuel system on our Golf, he had everything up and running in no time and made sure to check everything else was running smoothly before he left. Really reliable, friendly and professional!
BRILLIANT! I had been having appalling car problems which I won't list here, had been to one garage after another, all of whom had charged me a fortune for doing nothing to improve anything, and then I came across Mario and MD Vehicle Solutions.Thank goodness I did! Mario is a serious professional, has great integrity, works to the highest possible standard, is 100% reliable, polite and helpful and more than goes that extra mile. I cannot praise him or recommend him and his company highly enough - absolutely fantastic. I shall never let anyone else ever service or go near any of my cars. Mario, you have a very grateful and hugely appreciative customer for life!
Very knowledgeable and punctual service. I've used MD three times, once for a service and twice for repairs, and the service was excellent. The maintenance van is a late model, and is clean and very well equipped, and Mario couldn't be more helpful and informative, and his work is top notch. I can highly recommend, and I will be using him again, when required, in future.
