Put it in for 60k service with a noise that sounded like a pulley bearing going dry.

Anyway, it's the autobox @ 4100! Renault dealers only fit new boxes. Got a price of 1800 to recon it which I can live with as the warranty from Arnold Clark has a limit of 2k & Renault dealer has got authorisation for me to go ahead.

Needs to be done quick as driving to Venice in 2 weeks!

This year general maintenance / repairs -

Feb 09 225 to get it through MOT

August 09 26.10 for oil change last week

August 09 92 for bearing and hub change - just back from dropping it off at the garage.

Replaced all the wipers once or twice so add about another 20

Grand total so far - 363.10

Bit I wanted for the car -i.e seat covers, wheel trims, new plates about 100

So all in all that's around a total sum of about 457.10. only just over a tenner short of what I paid for the car almost a year ago!. She is 13 years old though with near to 53K on clock (I've done almost 10K of that in almost 12 months). The old girl is due some TLC.

Yes, I'm aware I've just tempted fate...

This would be better titled, "how much have you had to spend on repairs (through mechanical or electrical failure)", rather than the things you would expect to have to pay out for simply with wear and tear and servicing of any car, would be more accurate that way.
