Hi ,

little bit of advice please , my daughter had the AA out because of her car not running properly and the engine management light coming on , they came out , plugged the diagnostic machine into her car and found the No 1 fuel injector was faulty , she booked it into our local garage who are normally quite good , £120 pounds later it was supposedly sorted , next day driving back from her boyfriends on a dual carriageway the car coughs splutters (her words) a load of smoke from under the bonnet , she manages to get the car into the side of the road and calls the AA again , turns out the fuel rail connector hadn't been put back onto the injector properly and had worked its way loose spraying fuel over a hot engine , AA man (same one who came out to diagnose the original problem) said that she was lucky the car hadn't caught fire or worse , how should i go about this complaint wise , in person to the garage , in writing or not at all , if it had been a bolt on the exhaust or some other minor thing i wouldn't be so concerned but the fuel systems a bit of a different thing , any advice or views would be appreciated :-)

Hi Mint


I would send a letter of complaint to the garage, with a copy of the last AA Report. Clearly you need to be compensated as the repair was not carried out correctly, and could of caused harm to your daughter and others. Send it Recorded.
