Modern motor vehicles are quite complicated. They’ve come on a long way since Henry Ford started mass producing the famous Model T Ford in 1908. Finding a local garage in Petersfield that not only offers you car repairs, but has an excellent quality service level, as well as skilled motor mechanics, is also complicated. Any old mechanic can repair that Model T, but do they have the knowledge and skill to keep your modern car, or van on the road?

Brake Repairs: Your vehicle's brakes are being constantly worn away. So, require regular maintenance. Commonly, the front brake pads need more attention than the rear brake pads. At 2U Tyres, we only use quality replacement brake parts for all the vehicles we service in our Petersfield workshop.
Gearbox Repairs: Although your vehicle's transmission is reliable we still see problems with sluggish gear changes in automatic gearboxes, and difficult gear changes in manual gearboxes. These are all symptoms of wear and tear in the gearbox that we’ve seen before. Our gearbox experts can diagnose the problem and get you back on the road with the minimum of fuss.
Electrical Repairs: Modern vehicles have very complicated electrical systems that often fail, causing your vehicle to break down. Starter motors and alternators are common items that fail, and will both lead to a breakdown when they do.
Did you know that today’s modern cars have over 1,500 individual wires, totalling about 4km in length. Whereas vintage vehicles from the 1940s only had about 55 wires, amounting to a total length of 150 feet. At 2U tyres, our auto electrician can get to the root of your electrical problems as quick as a flash.
Suspension Repairs: Shock absorbers, coil springs, suspension bushes and suspension ball joints are all subject to wear, these items are also part of the MOT Test. They all work together to ensure you have a smooth and relaxing ride to your destination. If you hear unusual noises, clunks or rattles from your car or van, it could be a sign that there are problems with the suspension on your car, or van and it needs repair.
Wheel Alignment: Your vehicle’s wheel alignment keeps your vehicle driving in a straight line. Correctly aligned wheels not only increases the life of your car tyres, but it also improves the handling of your vehicle. At 2U Tyres we use state-of-the-art 4 wheel laser alignment systems to maximise tyre wear and to ensure your vehicle remains stable at speed.
Engine Repairs & Diagnostics: Your car's engine is reliable but requires constant attention. Regular servicing is key to long life & trouble free motoring. There are many internal, as well as external engine components on your vehicle's engine that could fail if not looked after properly.
At 2U Tyres, Petersfield’s highly recommended automotive specialists, we are vehicle engine repair experts. Catching problems early is key to minimising damage to your engine when things go wrong. So, if your vehicle's engine smokes, rattles or shudders as you drive along, call us on 01730 233399 and we’ll get to the bottom of what’s going on.
We see plenty of different vehicles every day, needing a wide variety of car repairs. But, the common car repairs we carry out daily include MOT tests, car services, and tyre replacement.
Although there are many other very common vehicle repairs our highly skilled technicians deal with, regularly. Modern vehicles often have problems with variable vane turbo chargers, and EGR valves. While older vehicles, with higher mileage will often need timing belts and clutch replacement.
Does hard mean physically difficult, or mentally challenging?
On today’s modern vehicles, probably the hardest thing to do is to interpret the information given by our diagnostics equipment, when a vehicle has a running problem. Often the ‘clues’ given are misleading because of the way the computers and ECUs ‘talk’ to each other.
They use a system called CAN bus. CAN bus is like the internet, and it instructs your vehicles' many micro computers to complete their tasks. Even your headlamps are computer controlled!
Our technicians have to diagnose that the misfire from your engine is because of the failure of your heated rear screen! Or some other weird, seemingly unrelated, set of circumstances.
The days have long since gone when you could spend a Sunday afternoon fixing your own car on your drive, in the rain. Unless you have spent many years learning the quirks of modern vehicle technology, you could cause a bigger problem.
A good example would be the car battery, it would seem a simple task, even today. But, do you know that if you replace a defective car battery yourself, you could give yourself an expensive problem further down the line.
This is because many cars need to be told they have a new battery, so they do not overcharge it. You can only tell the car it has a new battery with expensive diagnostic equipment, which you may not have. But, your friendly local garage, 2U Tyres does. Because of the complex vehicle systems on modern cars, we do not recommend you try to fix your own car.
For all of your car and van repairs in Petersfield, 2U Tyres is your No.1 choice for all your vehicle repairs. Our automotive specialists will keep your vehicle in tip-top condition, and running reliably.
