Re: Car Stuck in French Garage - Insanely Expensive Quote

Does anyone know any good garages in France, around the Lyon or Geneva region (it is currently in Bourg-en-Bresse).

The garage claimed that a new turbo is 700 euros, + at least 1050 euros for labor.

They also informed me that despite the fact that the vehicle is in OK shape and the front tires are brand new, no value would be recovered if it was disposed of. This has to be a lie, I'm sure they just want to pocket some coin for themselves.

Is this a common experience with Renault dealership garages? I need to keep a good relationship with this garage because they have our car in their possession, but their attitude is borderline fraudulent! Every garage in the UK we have spoken to has quoted 700 - 1000 euros less, we just can't get it home to them!
