The type of service will depend on what is being done and if any problems are identified which may require additional work. At the time of writing, the price of a Bronze Vehicle Service (standard service) at Elite Garages is from £110 and a Silver Car Service (premium car service) from £210.

Brake pads and discs wear out over time and will need replacing at some stage. Since no vehicle can operate without functioning brakes, Elite Garages will check yours for free and make recommendations for brake repairs or replacements, if deemed necessary.

Categories: Clutch, Salisbury
Several signs indicate that your clutch may need replacing, including a spongy pedal that may also stick or vibrate when you press it. A squeaking or a grumbling noise when you press down on the pedal, poor acceleration when revving the engine and difficulty shifting gears are tell-tale signs you may need a new clutch. 

All Elite Garages offer a wide range of budget, mid-range and premium tyres at various prices. The type of tyre will depend on several factors, including the make and model of the vehicle (performance, load-bearing, EV), how often you drive and personal driving habits, among others. Visit our website to see tyre brands we stock.

The squeaking sound your brakes make come from worn-down brake pads and is often when metal rubs against metal. As you press down on the brake pedal, the brake calliper clamps around the pad and applies pressure to slow your wheel down. If your brake pads are worn, these components will rub together resulting in a grinding or squeaking noise.

This question is often also about the legal tread limit so we are always happy to explain that it is 1.6mm. We recommend changing your tyres at 3mm for optimal performance and safety but this is the customer’s choice. You can book a free tyre check to ensure your tread is above the legal limit.
