Is this reasonable
Hi Carolineth. I would see the costs of MOT, servicing and tyres as a necessary evil but this applies to all motor vehicles. Did you expect to pay no costs during that period? I wish it was that easy. Although the car is only 4 and half year sold – there are many factors that influence running costs. For example how many miles are on the vehicle, how did the previous owner treat it, was it correctly serviced and maintained, etc. As a matter of interest was there any warranty when you bought it? I have driven and worked at Renaults over the past 5 years or more and have found them to be no worse than the average car. In my opinion the MOT, service, and tyre costs have nothing to do with the quality of the vehicle. If you subtract these costs from the overall total you would present a truer picture.
