I’m sure I’m not alone in this.
Having read of others trusting garages other than known or recommended places, shouldn’t a garage provide the actual parts ordered showing the invoice from where they were actually purchased?
Not being a mechanic, you take your car in say eg; for l an advisory for tyres. rear springs, new discs and pads etc etc.
You get the cost in total of parts listed & labour + vat and you trust them.
Then drive away not knowing if the parts you’ve paid for are genuine, brand new or whatever?
I had new brakes and discs all round and requested a certain make to be fitted, but to this day I do not know if they are the genuine parts. Without taking the wheels off I wouldn’t know except if they were shiny or different
Last time I told a garage I was going to order the parts myself-. They said fine, no problem, but I got a quote from them to fit to be on the high side .
Aren’t garages obliged to give the actual cost paid from supplier ( even if they do get it trade?)
