Vehicle Suspension

A vehicle’s suspension system helps to keep your tyres firmly in contact with the road. It assists with braking and road handling and is essential for a safe, smooth drive.

​The vehicle suspension system is essentially a complex system of components located beneath the car’s body, designed to work together to absorb the impact from minor imperfections in the road’s surface and offer you a controlled, comfortable ride.

Due to the fact that suspension systems tend to wear gradually over a period of time, problems can be difficult to detect. If you leave it too long, however, there will be a negative effect on road handling, tyre wear and braking performance.

Warning signs that you should be on the lookout for include:

Maintaining a healthy suspension system is vital for a safe and comfortable drive, so be sure to arrange your free steering and free suspension check at your local PTA Garage Services branch if you notice any of the listed problems.

Car Steering

Steering is one of the most essential factors when it comes to safe driving, so if you notice any problems, no matter how minor, you should get your vehicle checked as soon as possible.

Steering faults cause poor handling, knocking noises and increases stress and wear on other attached parts. This can lead to a shorter vehicle life, less driving satisfaction and additional, unnecessary repair costs.

The two most common types of steering are manual steering racks and power assisted steering racks. Both types are subject to damage and both could fail. In this case they will need to be repaired or replaced.

If you notice any of these problems or even just hear any unusual noises, it is important that you have your steering and suspension checked by a specialist as soon as possible.
