Here at First Stop Grip Tyre and Auto Care, our technicians will help maintain your exhaust system and ensure your vehicle runs safely and efficiently. The exhaust is responsible for filtering and removing harmful gasses created by the engine. Your car's exhaust is essential for your MOT and vital for controlling emissions.

Symptoms you should look out for:

  • Smoke coming from the exhaust
  • Excessive engine noise
  • Rattling noises along the exhaust system
  • A noticeable decrease in performance and acceleration
  • Burning or gaseous smells


Your car's suspension is responsible for a smooth ride, and responsive handling, poor or damaged suspension can make for an uncomfortable driving experience. Unchecked, suspension damage can continue to degrade, leading to increased stopping distances, increased or uneven tyre wear and sluggish handling. Some issues you should look out for:

  • Worn tyres
  • Excessive vibration
  • A sunken chassis
  • Tyre shaking
  • Nosedive when braking, fluid leaking from the strut
  • Body sway when driving in strong winds
