i.e. Give Halfords a sales opportunity.

A few years ago i took my car for an mot it passed with an advisory because a tyre was just above legal tread depth so i popped into halfords on the way home and asked for a tyre fitting ,so in goes the car and they offer me a free safety check while i`m there i said ok.
20 mins later i`m told front discs and pads are shot the rear discs and pads aren`t much better and the cv boots need changing,it passed 2 more mots since then and never mentioned discs or cv boots yet,i have had to change the brake pads though.


if you take up this offer i would also take it somewhere else to be checked over to confirm what they say needs doing.


my 2 penneth from personal exprience

If you're that dumb you can't check horn and lights you are a liability on the roads - PLEASE WALK!

Just a sale's ploy, their only interest is meeting the monthly quota for work, not the safety of the car.
