Hi,can anyone explain why Renault Dealers charge so much for parts ? I own a renault trafic van, for those that dont know it is the same as the Vauxhall Vivaro ,I have owned both variants and Vauxhall dealer parts are much cheaper and they are exactly the same made at the same factory.
example front brakes vauxhall disc's 108.00 a pair, Renault 165.00, pads renault 58.00 vauxhall 41.00 also big difference in attitude,vauxhall want your business, renault are not bothered!! parts sales man told me that vauxhall would be much cheaper on every part and if he was me he would go there.
