    Default Wrong springs yet passes MOT :S

    Hi!

    My car failed its MOT last week and to cut a long story short, the replacement springs that were put on were wrong for the car. So instead of the lowered Vectra SRi ones, they had the springs from the front of the car from a normal vectra on the rear.....

    Now the garage that MOT'd it had nothing to do with the work, but should i complain that they passed it through the MOT on the retest when they clearly did not check it, as when the wheels drop the springs pop out :S

    The springs are barely on the car and when yuo hit a bump they move

    There being replaced Monday so there be safe again but i just wanted to ask you guys what you think.

    Look, i found out today they were like it, yes it is wrong and that is why i am having yet more personal expense having to replace the springs AGAIN. I have already lost days of work sorting this rubbish out and your comments are completly off what i have asked.

    If i didnt care then i wouldn't be here asking and i wouldn't be replacing them again would i.

    I asked simple questions about where i stand with regards to the garage and that is all, not an ear bashing about whether i have been wreckless or not.

    Stupid Question> How?

    I asked if i legally or morally had an obligation to inform anyone such as Trading Standards or anyone else.

    The full story is irrelevant, The key parts were there, who and what are completly irelevant and a waste of time to everyone who is reading this just like this pathetic spate.

    ATEOTD if you have nothing constructive to say then dont reply and waste the time of those reading and/or those who could actually help by being useful.
