They always give me a hard time ever since the beast smoked out their garage/clogged the emissions tester a couple of years ago.. and the tailgate dropped onto the tester's head due to weak struts.... so this time the car was really, really immaculate.
I fitted a new turbo actuator boost valve, replaced the boot struts.. and fitted new wishbone arms since one was a bit moody... and removed the child seat so it wasn't in the way.
The car "failed" on a lazy seat belt retractor (the one where the child seat had been fitted for two years.. annoying but maybe "fair enough")
They failed the wishbone ("pin is worn"... despite it being just 2 weeks old)..
They didn't test the emissions because of excess smoke, even though that was residual from the old/lazy boost valve)... and;
They failed the track rod end... which was "fine" when they had adjusted the tracking just a fortnight earlier. When I replaced the track rod, I found it was damaged but the effort required to unbolt the lock nut makes me think their "adjustment" of the tracking must have consisted of belting the track rods with a hammer.. no way they had been loosened and re-tightened just two weeks earlier.
Overall, not impressed... and won't be inconveniencing them again with my business..
