    Default mot fail

    hi peeps had my car at vauxhall yesterday and walked away with a 745.00 pound bill but i am disgusted they sent me a offer with a letter stating a full service and mot for a special price of 169.00 so i opted to go for it car failed on a broken spring . sun view sticker attop of windscreen obstucting wipers ( a maximum of 2cm were touching) two indicator bulbs at rear had faded abit and a tyre was 1mm under legal liit and they wanted 745.00 to do the work
    needless to say ill be doing the work this weekend
    but on inspection of my car the pollen filter or air filter hve not been changed i think a big complaint is to be put in now really not happy and got to py a 20,00 retest fee what t======s they are
    will never go to main dealer again

    Hmm. 1mm under the legal limit? That means half a mm tread on your tyre. Not the best really

    Still sounds a lot for some of the bits, but:-

    £26 + £17.50 + £300 + £89 + £169 = £601.50

    Where's the other £143.50 come from?
