i do oil change every 2 years, don't do many miles these days.

benish7

Who are you using for servicing? Yearly Oil change etc? Or are you leaving that? My service book says 1year / so many thousand miles. I’ve done no where near the amount of miles it says, so should be safe to leave a year I guess?

Some local councils can do MOTs, they will have zero motivation to find non-existent faults.

Must have had 20+ Kwikfit MOT's, failed on the occasional lightbulb, thats it. I guess if you've booked a service at the same time, that when you can get stung. I had a main dealer say my brakes were 70% worn, when they replaced the discs and pads the month before!!

Is this going negative because it's not a deal or because its kwikfit? 5 pound off sounds like money saving to me, used them in the past with no issues. Heat

and I went for free wheel alignment check (available while booking online for new tyers ) and ended up paying £80 for “geo” alignment (fierce) also if you use them for air conditioner re-gass,I think they don’t fill it fully, because the gass was gone in less than 12 months,(no leak) and had to re-gass.they say it’s normal. but they had good deals for tyres tho.(best price available anywhere)

You were lucky ;) I'm pleased it worked for you, The other stuff I recommended will work even better since it's better stuff ;) Some folk even add a bit of 2 stroke oil to it to aid lubrication.

john_chappell

Well it worked in mine (y)

.MUFC.

Redex is a poor performing additive, Besides it's pretty easy for a diesel to pass emissions if the DPF if is working as it should be. It's most probably just luck. It contains an ingredient called 2-EHN 2-Ethyl Hexyl Nitrate and there is some science behind it but it contains it in very small quantities. If you want to use additives that will actually work much better for diesels then I'd recommend this stuff it's 99% rather than 5%. It can potentially lower the combustion temp of the diesel, Hence it burns more efficiently and helps with DPF regeneration active and passive etc.. It won't clean as such but can help clear the DPF. To clean I'd recommend Seafoam it's the only additive that I've seen genuinely clean carbon off pistons etc.. Yes on older cars Redex has been known to help restore a little power but it won't do much to a modern car. There are loads of additives out there that do a much better job but in general they're a waste of money. Your car really shouldn't need them, It won't be long before the engine lights back on ;) Also changing the oil frequently will help more, During active regeneration's the diesel can end up mixing with the oil, This can increase the oil level and dilute it so it doesn't lubricate as well and can eat away at various different seals causing leaks and in some cases engines blowing up due to the increasing pressure due to oil level! Especially if active regeneration's are cut short and you do lots of short journeys etc.. Short journeys equal more carbon buildup, more carbon build up equals more active regeneration's more regeneration's equal more diesel in the oil etc.. I'd recommend changing it every 6k or maybe even less if lots of stop start, short journeys etc.. Doesn't matter what oil so long as it meets manufacturers minimum specs. Me personally, I've tried 2-EHN 2-Ethyl Hexyl Nitrate and didn't notice any difference but mines a relatively modern car.

WCS.Tony

I must admit that I have been using normal REDEX in my OLD cars for years - many decades. I bung some in when I fill up if the engine is not running 100% and it does seem to help. It cleared a sticking carburator (dirty jets etc.) a couple of times on different cars and it always seems to help when the engine was not idling very smoothly. It may not cure all engine problems but it does clean deposits and seems to help in smooth running? Worth a couple of £ even if it's only a placebo effect - as far as I'm concerned.

I have no intension of using water out of a condenser tumble dryer tank in a steam iron or similar. But from the sounds of it some others who posted above might?! CarPlan De-ionised water at £2 for 5 litres seems affordable enough.

gazjon

Bear in mind, unless it's filtered, that water is likely to have tiny fibres in it, the little fluff thing you empty out only catches larger stuff.

cheekster

Usually, the two different types of tumble dryer are referred to as being vented or a condenser. “A condenser tumble dryer collects moisture from your wet clothes in a container, sometimes referred to as a reservoir, which is located within the dryer itself. This tank collects the water and when it’s full you simply have to empty it. Most modern models tell you when the tank is full. This is beneficial for many people as it means you can place the unit pretty much wherever you like – it doesn’t have to be placed by an external wall.” https://www.appliancecity.co.uk/laundry/tumble-dryers/condenser-vs-vented-tumble-dryers-whats-difference/

dantesfireplace

Heat added as this is a nice discount :-) All main dealers should offer the 1 year extension to your Ford Recovery. I agree it's a nice addition. I have a Ford direct car that's still got it's 2 years AA recovery left on mine so that's not an issue. To maintain your warranty and use a non-Ford garage they must follow the Ford ETIS schedule and use Ford approved parts. I trust my local garage more than my local Evans Helshaw franchise so I simply provide the 5w20 Magnatec oil to my garage and they follow the official schedule. Cost me £105 for the service and £35 for 5 litres of 5w20. This was on a 2 year old MK8 EcoBoost Fiesta.

HotOrNotYouDecide

£200 for a service at a main dealership for many brands not unusual.

BlackCloud

Just had my interim service done at a main dealer. It's an expensive oil change as most of it is simply visually checking. However you need the proper service to maintain some warranties, and you can't guarantee the right spec oil in some non Ford places, especially if you have an Ecoboost. My main dealer gave me a 'free' years breakdown and recovery Inc home start so that really sweetened the price somewhat.

Noo_Ganoo

Agree you can almost certainly get cheaper servicing elsewhere (local garage or Kwikfit) but some may prefer to stick to main dealer servicing

I just used the Reading branch, second year in a row. Last year passed with no issues. This year just the headlights out of alignment. Very friendly mechanic showed me the issue whilst the car still on the tester. He said it normally costs £15 per light but would do both for £15. I have no idea how to do this or how much it should cost but was happy for him to do it. He also advised that one number plate bulb had blown and that it wasn't an MOT failure unless both bulbs blow, he made it clear that he could do it but would cost less if I did it myself. So my experience with this branch after 2 MOTs is excellent, very friendly and informative staff and they appear very trustworthy. We all have different experiences but just thought I'd share mine. I'll be using them again next year for sure.

On the Juke there is no rear key operated hatch lock, its solenoid operated so it cant be overridden by a key from outside. I'm not the only person with this issue, many Juke and Note owners are suffering the same fault. Its not as though hatchbacks are a new concept, on my 20 year old Vectra they have the same setup but the wiring used was designed for durability, alas Nissan fall short in there use of quality wiring.

Mr_Gus

Ralph, any vehicle ought have a puff or 3 of graphite powder in the locks annually to help facilitate smoother function, whilst not saying it wasnt cruddy wire, the graphite powder (at under a quid delivered from ali-express) helps take the tension out of lock mechanisms... worth wandering around the home etc & using in window / conservatory locks etc after usin it on your vehicles for smoother movement in the keyhole & catches.

marty-401

They must know you are going to need roadside assistance if you drive a Nissan (shock)

Ralph888

This breakdown service included with servicing came in handy when my Nissan Juke's boot refused to open. The breakdown man said they have had alot of calls due to the crappy wire boot harness breaking. The wires are so poor that every time you open and close the hatch they weaken and eventually snap. Apparently it was a Renault based cost saving that now renders all Jukes with limited lifespan due to penny pinching accountants reducing the quality of the wire used in the car. My previous Nissan's never had these issues, wont buy another one that's for sure.

For the 'emissions' issue, you should warm up your vehicle and run on motorway at least 20 min before MOT test.

david_han

my experience, I always bought halford auto free MOT voucher or half price £17 in the past. free MOT £0! My golf and vw passat both are 10 years old with good service. very smoothly pass without any problem. I understand this business model will try best to find out any possible issue during MOT test, but your car is good, they can not say it is bad. Because any MOT test is a legal file, you can appeal if they make mistake. I enjoy this business model, because they will test my car with the highest standard. That is safe for me and other road user, save MOT test money for me as well.

DominicPTS

Not so in the first case, as it's a garage I used all the time who usually had my business, I was simply trying to save £25 by putting the car through an MOT I thought it would pass. I was told "the lads will try and help a car through by warming it up first, give it some revs to clear any crud from the system, and in the case of a sticking brake, pump them to see if it frees it off". She did however suggest I could do this myself to try and aid the cause, so I did. Their opinion was that where they would try and coax a car through MOT on borderline emissions or suchlike, many MOT test stations would simply put the reader in the exhaust and take the readings with the car ticking over. As receptionist (and joint owner/wife of the boss mechanic) she has been there for years so I have no reason to doubt this. But yes, on things like lights, brake pads/discs, exhaust, tyres etc you'd have a fail anyway. The issue I've seen a few times though is stuff being made advisory, and over egged as needing doing, that another garage has looked at and said "you are fine for a good few thousand miles, and on your mileage you should be good to the next MOT".

coalfield

I take your point but please appreciate in both cases these were genuine MOT fails though... the remediation is a different story but regardless of what garage you take it to it these would have failed on first pass. Also the fact you went to a competing garage after failing an MOT meant you got preferential treatment since they were trying to show the garage up and win over your long term business. If you went to your local garage first and then Halfords or National I expect you would get exactly the same thing People see it the way they want to see it which takes me back to my original statement (angel)

DominicPTS

Two examples. 1. I took my car to Halfords as had voucher for cheap MOT. They failed it on several things including emissions - "could be lambda sensor, could be several things... If we examine it it's a £50 charge to diagnose what it is". Told also a brake binding. Took to usual local garage, explained what had happened. They told me to give it a good run around the bypass and pump the brakes a bit. Result? Emissions fine and no binding brake. 2. Friend took his to National last week for this offer. Failed on a £20 rubber boot but told it could end up as a £200-250 job as a pig to get off and could need new track rod end. Lots of sucking of teeth. Took for second opinion, decent local garage, said should just be able to change, but worst case was a lower quote by £50.

It's 6.5 litres mate. The cost of the oil is a maximum of £60 and lets say £10 max for the oil filter. Unless they've done something else they are taking the piss IMO. I would phone another BMW dealership and get a price for an oil service and see what they say. Also, might be worth buying a Service Plan from BMW if you don't want to go to an independent, which is understandable if your car is only a year old.

Thanks for the help heathead. The previous owner informed me it’s been serviced at a indi specialist but hasn’t provided proof as of yet. BMW have no record of any services being performed and I haven’t got anywhere tracing the service history with indies in the area it came from. I’ve got HU service manager ready for when I obtain the service record, to update the I-Drive. I was going to buy a service book once I’d located the servicing garage but no joy yet.

heathead

I see. Are you 100% sure it's been serviced by an indie? Main dealers have been known to not update the idrive after it's been serviced but still reset the CBS indicator. If it has 100% been serviced by an indie - 1.Try and find the indy and see if they have access to the BMW AOS portal to enter the service history so it'll show on the idrive. Good amount of info here. https://www.jamescooke.me.uk/automotive/bmw-online-digital-service-book-idrive-service-history-why-how-what/ 2. If they don't have access - buy a blank service book and get the to stamp the book. At least then the book will fill the service history gap in the idrive. 3. Do some research - buy a cable - download software and enter the service onto the idrive yourself. 4. Make contact with someone on a forum in your area who can do option 3 for you for soon beer tokens. If you're just assuming it's been serviced by an indie - Go to a different dealer and say you think your CBS is incorrect as the car has a service pack but there's no service history to coincide with the CBS indicator last reset, and based on the last documented service it's now due a service. I'd just leave it at that, try create a period of awkward silence and let them fill the silence (it's probably the biggest pressure applying tactic there is, sales people use it all the time) Don't mention anything about an indie. This will hopefully paint the image in their mind that a main dealer has made a mistake somewhere, then will hopefully be more willing to do something. Hope it helps. (y)
