Are you telling me that all this electronic gadgetry (like oil -level check at start-up) is not reliable? Ohh! I am so surprised. And here I am thinking I really do have a puncture when the electronics tel me so, despite the refute from my little slider-guage.

TBH I only open the bonnet if I feel like messing around (I haven't felt like messing around since my early twenties, roughly just a few years ago)or if I suspect that something REALLY does need checking... e.g. if my brakes feel spongy, I would check hydraulics (just to make sure, mind you) or if the car is showing signs of over-heating, I might check the coolant level.

The last time I opened my bonnet myself, was when the franchise left a petrol-pipe gushing petrol over my engine which cause the car to have a nasty smell and me to have an even nastier headache for nearly two weeks.

Of course this does not apply if the car is old.
