Useless garages

Renaults are not the only makers that don't know how to repair cars.

My son took his Rav 4 into the dealers to find out why a warning light had lit up on the dash, the dealers said it was to do with the emmisions and either needed a new Cat, 1500.00 or an ECU update, 89.00 plus vat and labour. He would also have to pay for diagnostics. My son booked it in for diagnostics.

When he got home he thought about it and as it was emmisions he decided to renew the air filter, 12.00 from Hafords.

The warning light went off and stayed off, problem solved for 12.00 .

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
Currently in davesss's garage:
2002 Laguna Sports Tourer 1.8 Dynamique Moondust VF1KGOB, Fiat Siecento Micheal Schumaker, Kawasaki KLE M/Cycle and a cheap Mountain Bike.
