WEll dropped car into Renault this morning.
Just got phone call.
Head gasket is leaking oil... needs replacing. £80
Flexible Break hoses cracking - need replacing - £40
Wiper blades - need replacing £22
Front tyre balding - needs replacing - £60
OK!. Had the car since August 2002. when i got the car.. i took it back to renault and questioned the state of the tyres and that i was told they should have been changed before selling the car. Renault said they were fine, and didnt change them for that reason... NOW it needs changing because im bringing it in for service?? SHOULD BE DONE FREE???
Break hoses?? ALREADY!? Should have been road worthy before selling the goddamn thing?????
Head Gasket leaking oil already?? i dont rag it or drive it hard.. im a sensible driver! i mean 40mph limit in jersey isnt exactly forcing pressure on it is it?!?! should have been checked before selling the car???
Apparently the car was meant to have had a full service done by renault before it was put up for sale... im very inclined to believe this statement, and believe this is a load of b*llsh*t
Anyone shed any light if im right or not on these things?
