I had a Freelander that i had replaced all of the disc/drums, pads/shoes.hydraulic rear pistons and handbrake cables. I had also replaced the entire exhaust system (including the catalyst) I took it to Rylets (Ford) for an MOT. They failed it on insufficient brake efficiencies and emmissions to high. I told them it had only done 1 miles since all the work being done. There attitude was "tough" and took the money. When asked if they could repair vehicle they replied "haven't got the equipment for a Land Rover. Very helpful I don't think. I took it to "Donnington MOT specialist the next day and got a PASS. I did nothing to the vehicle. When asked how it had passed I was told, the catalyst hadn't been activated so I avtivated it and this bought the emmissions down to an acceptable level and the brakes just needed bedding in. My sons Skoda Fabia, failed the Mot at a specialist center down in kent, they quoted him £960 for work to get it through an MOT. He bought it up to good old Dad. I repaired it for £160 cost of bits. Took it to Donington MOT's and they passed it without even a warning!!! Top rate in my book. So the moral of the story is forget the big specialists and support your local tradesman. They (this Local MOT centre) turned out to be top notch and I'd recomend it to everyone.Report this
