OH bought a car (VW Golf 2007) 3 weeks ago.


MOT'd until Dec 2016


3 month warranty


Yesterday 'Front brake pads' warning light came on.


So I checked previous MOT's (previous owner).


2014 - Advisory note details attached states brakes 50% worn.


2015 - No details at all on Advisory note this time. Same garage as above MOT but not dealer.


Now can I contact the garage for any advisory details ? Or to find out if they were replaced ?


Thanks for looking.

You can get full MoT history including advisories here https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-history-vehicle.


Can you confirm the mot'd until date. The most mot you can have is 13 months ?


Cheers Conniff


I just looked up details and no advisory details ?


sorry MOT'd until 29 Nov 2015


Should have said


MOT Nov 2013 - Advisory re front brake pads - failed due to tyre tread and eventually replaced and passed.


MOT Nov 2014 - Passed with no advisory ?


If need be should I contact the garage where the car was purchased and mention the issue. I know it will probably be not covered under warranty but what about SOGA ?

Replacing all of my brakes myself for £45. Mintex are quality and cheap.


Thank-you all for your replies.


I will make some enquiries regarding pricing of pads and perhaps attempt to replace myself :shock:

Don't get pads off ebay, there is a chance they could be counterfeit and dangerous, which is why I mentioned Unipart. Mintex are a good choice.

I got my mintex one's off ebay. All sealed proper packaging. You're as likely to get fake ones on ebay than anywhere else. Never ever had a problem with fake items on ebay after 700+ items.

Thank-you all for your advice.


I will look up my local unipart store.


You may want to try a different motor factors such as Euro Car Parts, Unipart went out of business last year.

I made a similar remark in a post in the bear garden and was called a racist. :)


No, you said this, which isn't the same:

Heck, even China are counterfeiting entire cars now.


And that says China so must be refering to the whole country.


No, you said this, which isn't the same:


I know it's not the same, that's why I said "a 'similar' remark"
