    They gave me no info at all, just the quote of plus 900 Inc service which I didn't ever ask for so took that off and the quote of 740 was given, they have great reviews but I just felt sick when they told me the price.
    There is no dripping oil !!! It's been advisory for about 3 years but as I say I can smell burning oil from engine with windows down in summer ! 
    Shall I ask for readings? 
    Cheers !

    These are listed as all major repair immediately,  but I never have to top my oil up !
    Also they quoted 4 hours labour on these jobs

    Had an advisory on my Zafira at the start of last year saying the flexi coupling was aging. The price for the part then was quoted at £250. Given parts inflation over the last year, the pipe alone will make up a fair part of your quote.

    I had it done Jan 2020 and the part was 49 plus 63 labour at .75 hrs

    I'd happily pay for the exhaust it's more the other stuff, I'd sure notice a calliper gripping my discs by sound but it seemed fine

    If the vehicle failed its test why did they do a service? The correct procedure is they should do the test - any faults/fail items are listed and communicated to the customer and no further word done without authorisation. The only cost should be for an MOT. You then have a choice - ask them to repair or as others have said go elsewhere.

    I once had a case where they spent over £900 on a service and MOT and then failed it miserably. The customer refused to pay and threatened legal action.

    They hadn't carried out a service, I booked it in for a mot only and the lady on the phone who rang to give the bad news said 900 plus inc service, I said whoa I never wanted a service just mot so she took it off the bill reducing from 950 to 740, she claimed I'd asked for a service in the morning, I definitely didn't as it was serviced 2900 miles ago.
