The MOT expired last December, I'll be honest I've been putting it off because I'm a knob and my normal garage who I've been using for over 10+ years has not been great the last couple of times, his work is not being called into question that's always good, his general lack of speed and urgency has started to grate, a lot of his regulars are retired and can cope with no car for another day or having to wait an extra week because he's taken on too much work, not ideal for me when I have to arrange lifts and walk with a two year old.
The above has led me to find a new garage, recommended by a friend, proper old school 'back street garage' the garage that MOT'd the wife's C4 last week which flew through. The guy seems honest enough and has MOT'd the Honda today, failed on Track Rod, and rear bulb, I was expecting a fail but not on that!
Should have the Honda back tomorrow and I'll speak with him about my couple of arears for concern,
1, rear spring, I thought it needed replacing.
2, front suspension arm, again I think rubbers are knackered
I also had a couple of 'part worns' fitted on the rear, not overly impressed as one tyre is dated 2013.
With the car nearing 197k I may well treat it to a decent set of tyres in the summer..
