Re: Mot failiure

I agree up to a point, things do fail after a while, but would several components of the braking system all fail within 2 months? I know some drivers are more tuned in than others they hear little noises, they know the feel of the car a bit better than others. For the people that aren't tuned in the garage should be their safety net.

Re: Mot failiure

If I might add a small tip for future years. Find a good garage that does (or arranges) MOTs and book your service and MOT to take place together (service first obviously). The MOT will usually ensure that the service is done properly.
As for your current situation, I would ask your garage how your car could fail an MOT on braking system defects, so soon after a "full inspection" and clean bill of health. See what they say.

When I say "I WILL THINK ABOUT IT", I really mean that I don't know my wife's opinion yet.

Re: Mot failiure

Years ago I used to use a small garage close to my work to do my servicing but they had no MOT facilities but would take car to local test station ..dont think I ever had a failure nor any scary bills

It is easier to take it apart than to put it back together
