Word of advice though don't expect them to perform miracles and make your car bran new. They might even find other things which need doing. The important thing is that they fix the mess they did before, check your car carefully this time and be honest with you with what needs done.
Totally agree with you ASG!
I am sure it must be very difficult in a garage to report to the customer all that is wrong with their cars because if like mine the list could go on for evermore,where do you stop
This is why we take our cars to Alfa Romeo specialists Harry, so that they may list all known problems and then perhaps prioritise further action according to urgency or funding, or possibly a mixture of both. Isn't this the whole point of a specialist? If it isn't, then what's the point of taking your Alfa there in the first place?
A large list would surely have us all on here accusing them of trying to have our legs lifted
Not if the list is prioritised as mentioned before, and work is sanctioned beforehand.
also think that Veloce is doing the right thing by speaking to YOU and not posting on the forum
Well obviously but as Johnson UK explained earlier in the thread he did originally speak to the garage and they did appear to be somewhat reluctant to do anything about the various concerns raised. It is precisely because the issues were raised on this Forum that the garage is now doing something about it. Of course if the garage had been prompt in dealing with the issues this thread would probably not exist.
The problem is between yourself and Veloce and not all us pub mechanics
Johnson UK was seeking advice because of the reasons given. Hence this thread. Hence this Forum actually
Good luck again Johnson UK, hope you get all the problems sorted!
