Re: MOT AND SERVICING???

well forone, if your car is over 3 years old it MUST legally have an MOT - and MOT declares it is roadworthy and is valid for 12months.

A service is for car of any age, no legal requirement to have it, however is wise, gives things a tighten up, clean out, etc etc.

Main difference, MOT says the car is at the minimum requirements to be roadworthy.

MOT around £40-50 for the test, soem palces do cheaper but thats the rrp so to speak equivalent.

Service - well depends is it an interim (according to schedule), a major, is it main dealer or backstreet garge. What car is it, too many variables to say really lol

ok say the service included the following:

i thought servicing was just one price? as long as you provide the parts it should cost no more than 80 quid.

but i assume that the more parts he fits (more work he does) the more it will cost?

Re: MOT AND SERVICING???

basically yes - more work theydo, more it costs you - takes time.

BUT servicing will vary garage to garage, and whether or not you take the car to the mian dealer or not. Service costs will vary car to car - some car manufacturers charge more than others.

My 2 small services on fiesta (not main dealer) have cost me in region of £100 inc parts. However the big major will cost more as more to eb done.

It all depends on the service schedule, you need t look at your own car's one in  the jhandbook, and ask a few garages wot each type of service will cost. Costs in various garages will alter up and down the country especially if not taking it to main dealer.

Re: MOT AND SERVICING???

It varies entirely. Go and talk to your local garages about it. Labour time to fit the parts will always vary as will slightly. It also depends on whether you are having a major service done or smaller one.
