Warning from a test certificate
"A test certificate is not evidence that the vehicle is in a satisfactory mechanical condition".....well maybe its time it should be improved upon ???
The tyre in question passed the 3/4 test however it was showing wear on the outside edge, however not enough to constitute a fail ( even on the visual un measured part of the inspection, though a "adviser" was issued regarding this tyre. I highlighted this in my pre sale advise sheet for the customer to clear myself legally and then the customer brought into question the validity of the MOT I'd had done days before.
As for the plastic coating, every pipe removed over the years on the testers advise have been checked and found to be on the way out underneath the un detatched flakes where water/salt etc was trapped....I think my testers using common sence and applied experience should be encouraged especially as he knows I am selling the cars on......
I use the tight/strict tester because I dont want any comeback from cars Iv sold
