I had a similar experience when the VS went in for a service in November. 25 point safety check indicated that I needed rear shocks urgently and would they like me to do it. I thought it was a bit odd and I'm no mechanic but I would of thought I would know about it if I need rear shocks so urgently.
Anyway declined and took it straight to my local independent to have a look and "nothing wrong with them" came the reply.
I had new tyres fitted in March so I asked tyre fitter to also look at shocks, nothing wrong.
Car just been back to original dealer who advised all of this and this time the 25 point list came back all clear so I questioned the shocks. OK them I was told.
So there you go, it does happen.

I'm not surprised at all.....

Find yourself a good independant that you feel you can trust and build a relationship with them.

Depending on where you live you may even find some good named garages on this forum.
