    Thats low miles, Check your service book to see if it has just had its inspection 1, If not i think it will be due one fairly soon.

    I know it includes oil and filter on inspection 1, Not sure about other fluids, I thin k they might be just on inspection 2?
    Sometimes the inspections come before or after 30000 miles, I think alot of it is to what kind of driving you do. ie long distance or short trips.
    If you are doing short trips the inspections and oil changes will come round quicker.

    I would have to agree with this, There prices are no more as bad as people think. Unless you are having work done then their labour rate can be quite high.

    Took my car to Wheelbase after the TC and Handbrake lights came on followng a Control Arm replacement by another garage.

    An Autologic scan suggested a faulty Pressure Sensor which they claimed they changed.

    I was not happy when 10 miles down the road the warning lights reappeared.

    Some internet research suggested it may be a alignment issue so I took it to Miles Tyres, Thornbury (excellent Service) who spent 2 hrs adjusting the suspension on their Hunter machine.

    The result was better handling and no more warning lights.

    I would avoid this garage like the plague they had my car for three weeks it went there because it would run and then cut out had to ring them every other day to see what was going on and they kept trying to fob me off I eventually got fed up rang them and said what's going on and they said if i wasn't happy with the service that I should come and get the lol!! I paid money to get the car transported there and then to get picked up to another garage and then to top it all off when I got there the car the would not start completely there was more lights on the dash which weren't there before and wouldn't even start with jump leads and the battery was brand new bought it they day before I went to the garage 90 pound YOU HAVE BEEEN WARNED

    I took my 2002 32D to them this weekend and got a FANTASTIC service at a very reasonable price compared to my usual garage. They took my car for a test drive, put it up on the ramp and the problem was diagnosed in seconds. As they are quite remote I was offered a lift home but opted to kill 3 hours. Once you get to know these guys you realise they know their stuff - they're down to earth, and in my view won't rip you off.
