Garage replaced my turbo 18 months ago with a new Garrat turbo - £1170 - my car has not performed well since - can not overtake a bus !! Have returned the car on numerous occassions to be told car drives fine. Last week after returning again - Garage tell me that the Turbo has seized - it is out of warranty therefore not their problem. I have written a letter under the sales of goods act - they say they will strip down the turbo to find out the fault but the cost of replace/repair/labour is down to me - I am furious the car has only done approx 15,000 since fitted. Anyone have advice - thanks

If indeed it has seized it would indicate a lubrication and or cooling fault which would not necessarily be apparent. Before replacing any components like this, it is very important to establish why the original went wrong. What was the original failure before it was changed. If the same there might be some mileage as to why they didn't check for this in the first place.

I assumed the Turbo had just given up the ghost as it had done over 90,000 miles assumed the garage would know what to do - we took it to a garage that only does Turbo so assume they would have done the job right - but now not so sure, they have written offering to strip it down and test but want to charge for repair and labour. I took the car back from day one saying it wasnt driving properly so feel that I told them immediately about the problem
