I thought I’d give you all the full saga.
Dropped off Twizy as arranged at John Clark Renault in Aberdeen on Wednesday morning for service and MOT. Told it would be 2 -3 hours as it would get a brake fluid change at the the service which can take a bit of time. They were all pretty excited as it was the first Twizy to get serviced at that branch, ( it’s less than 12 months old).
3 Hrs later phone goes, Twizy has failed the MOT as the front brakes are binding and the Hazard switch is no longer working.
Ok how much to repair?
Brakes - £396.00 inc VAT as they need stripped, cleaned and new discs fitted. Also I might have to pay £145 for the hazard switch, if it’s not a warranty fault.
Explained to the garage that the switch is a known fault that happens all the time, basically because it’s not waterproof, and it gets damp in Scotland quite a lot, so it will corrode. They backed down on that bit, so I agreed to get the front discs changed.
Ok Mr wilson it’ll be ready on Friday as we have to order the parts . All good I say.
Today they phone to tell me that they need new wheel bearings too,as they didn’t come with and it will cost a further £132.00 for them, and I’ll need to wait until Tuesday/Wed to get my Twizy back.(I hope)
So my “free” service & MOT is now costing £584.00, pretty poor on a vehicle that’s only 4 yrs old.
I think I’ll take it elsewhere next year for the MOT…
