    Default Warranty question

    Just a quick question. My car (1.8 Vec 55k) will be 3 years old at the end of Sept. I am thinking of having the MOT done early, so if there is any mojor problems it will still be under warranty. Does anyone think this is a good idea? How early can you have the MOT done? Thanks for any advice....

    I don't know if you're aware of some rule that says: If the vehicle is tested within the calendar month prior to when the MOT is due, the test certificate will run from the date of the test to one year after the expiry date of the current certificate. For example, if the current certificate was due to expire on 1 April 2007, and the vehicle was presented on or after 2 March 2007, the certificate would run from the test date until 1 April 2008.

    I motd'd my car at 2.5 years because my car would have been needing an MOT on 1st January if I waited to 3 years and when it gets older, didnt want to be doing it near xmas. When I put it in for its first MOT, the garage phoned me "do you realise that your MOT is not due for another 5 months yet?", when I explained the reason, the garage replied "good thinking" and yes, it was well within Warrenty so if anything major needed doing (which it didnt), I would have had time to get it sorted and still be legal.
