When a service is not a service!

Car servicing has become a numbers game. €99 for a full service? €129 for a full service and they give a €20 voucher back to you?

Can all this really happen and still give you a quality item? I don’t think so and I don’t think it takes a genius to figure out it can’t work, something’s gotta give!

Cheap car servicing

My tweet the other day was an off-the-cuff remark but it really does ring true. More and more cars are being serviced within ridiculous low price promises and parts are simply not being changed.

The quality of the parts that are being used in this type of servicing may also be questionable, without extensive testing it’s impossible to tell.

There’s definitely a connection between how dirty cabin filters are and the uptake on cheap service deals.

So this New York City truck driver had a bad day yesterday, because he accidentally backed into (and over) a $300,000 Ferrari FF! Ouch. Luckily the driver of the car was unharmed.
