Re: Warranty Running Out and MOT - Clio
Definitely get it mot'd prior to the 3rd birthday (mot's can be written for up to 13 months).
The garage won't be paying for anything that would be covered by the warranty that's failed - its a big insurance policy which pays out irrespective of which Renault dealer does the work. (They do get paid a reduced amount compared with normal 'Retail' rates, however).
If you wait until the warranty has expired, then you need to rely on goodwill which is nowhere near as forthcoming.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
2005 FIAT Ducato 2.8JTD LWB Gran Volume, 2000 Kawasaki ZZR 1100 D7 'fullpower' in black + full GIVI & KAPPA luggage, 2007 MB R-Class 320 CDi Sport LWB uprated by Brabus to 300Bhp don't know if there's a 155mph limiter - will be fun finding out! 2004 Mercedes Vaneo 1.7 CDi Ambiente 7-seater
