Garages - Why do they lie?
Took the girlfriend's Fiesta into the local garage the other day for a service. It's a 2 minute walk into the village - very convenient for us - so I thought we'd try them out, much easier than driving into the city or to a main dealer.
Anyway, the day before I noticed the washer fluid was empty so I filled it to the brim.
So I get the car back after the service and lo and behold, £1.99 for 1 litre of screen wash...
Why do they do this? I mean if they want to rip me off, stick another £1.99 to the price of the oil or something - I won't know the difference! To charge me £2 for screen wash when anyone could see it was absolutely full is just stupid.
So apart from the annoyance at being lied to, it makes me wonder what else on the service is total fiction. Needless to say I won't be taking the car there again... So they've lost our business for the foreseeable future, all for the sake of £2.
