:-x I recently went to a garage near to where I live as a friend recomended them to me, and said that they have always been fair and honest. To cut a long story short, my eletcric window had stopped working, the said garage told me it was the window regulator, (without checking it) and said it would cost me £120, I agreed for the work to be done, when I collected my I car, the first thing I noticed was my door speaker had not been connected, then when I put my window down, it wouldnt go back up again, (same as before). I took my car back the same day, and was told that it had been a B******d of a job to do, and so I would need to book it back in, which I did for the following wednesday, anyway, when I retuned, I was told that it now need a window switch, which would cost £158.00+ VAT+ fitting (EH), I said ok i'll have to think about it, as it seemed a lot, and I had already paid for the fault that the garage said it was to be repaired. So I took my car to another garage for a second opinion, as I felt I was being royaly ripped off, the second garage stripped my door, and the result was, that no new window regulator has been fitted, just a load of cable ties and a coupe of bolts, to botch up the broken regulator, (so no window switch needed) a also broken door panel & courtesy light, the cost to me was £264.34, so all in all its cost me £384.34, for a window regulator. Can anyone give me any advice/help as to how I can get back some of the MASSIVE amount of MONEY im out of pocket!!!!

Thanks in advance, as I know your all brilliant x

I'm having similar issues with a rubbish garage charging for work not carried out, check if they are a member of Motor Codes requlatory body, report them there 0800 692 0825 and also report them to Citizens Advice 08454 04 05 06 who will probably inform trading standards...


Thanks...
