You are right Peter, but again, this is the fault of the owner for taking it somewhere that can't deal with the car. People are quite stupid and set in their ways when it comes to things like that. My granddad would take his Reliant Robin to a terrible dealer, where he bought it for all it's servicing and repairs. He wouldn't listen to anyone else. They ripped him off many times. My Aunt won't take her PC for repair to anywhere other than PC World. She gets ripped off regularly. She won't let me touch it. Because she's been told by someone else and seen their adverts, she prefers to pay them £80 or whatever to do a "PC Health Check" than let me have it for an hour.Peter.N. wrote:Rattiva_Mike wrote:True, but its a fact of life, back street mechanics may be able to sort out the problems but the average dealer doesn't seem to be able to, just look at the problems experienced by many motorists in Honest John's forum. Most garages seem to work on a 'try it and see' basis, if it doesn't work the customer still pays, in some cases thousands of pounds and sometimes the car still gets written off.Peter.N. wrote:If the electronics were 100% reliable or faults could be diagnosed easily by the average mechanic
It is not hard, these days, to get the information from the internet. Most people do have access. A google of "Citroen Specialist Berkshire" brings up 3 immediately that I know have Lexias and could diagnose faults quickly.
