    Default Car Service today

    Just had the 5th year service done on the car at my local VX dealer (just to get the stamp in the book and to do any work needed covered under Network Q) phones me up midway with some advisories: 1. rear silencer starting to corrode , cost to replace=£227
    2. Brake fluid should be changed, cost to change = £35
    3. Wiper blades all round need changing, cost to replace= £40

    Needless to say I declined all ; as exhaust is double skinned and it's only the outer that's started to corrode and it's not blowing, Brake fluid was changed last July when I bought it and wipers (I knew needed changing) cost me £16 on Trade Club and a few minutes of my time to fit, just goes to show how some people can can ripped off by agreeing to any old work they suggest!!
    Cheers Pete

    You can't blame them, I am surprised they didn't try the brake pads too.

    Guess you're right there mate, hoping they would suggest pads as they are covered under Network Q !!
