I agree with you SportTourer, do they carry out all the safety checks?

It always amazes me how little drivers know about their own car, they might change the oil and filter but do nothing else and feel pleased they have serviced their car

Laguna service rip off

I was recently quoted 300 for a 38 K service at Renault, so i bought i Haynes manual off e-bay for 14. bought all the bits 90.00 (which included the top grade fully synthetic oil , and 5 Litres of brake fluid) and did it all myself in a couple of hours, and that included a full brake fluid change. The only problem i faced was trying to undo the sump drain plug, its a square hole job, special tool required, i fashioned one out of an old allen key, with a grinder !, so what i didnt get the service book stamped, but i have the full receipt which shows the quality grade of oil used , regards
