Recently i had cause to visit the main dealers due to a starting fault.This was eventually diagnosed as a faulty Battery which wasn't covered by ford three year warranty.Wallet lighter by £170.00 (diagnose and Battery).Today i received an email telling me my first registered 01/03/11 focus sport is due for an Mot ?????, i think they have lost the plot or has the law been changed lol.

Have something to contribute?

Think they have lost the plot, as as far as I know, it should be due its first MOT Jan 2014. And wow, £170 to basically put a tester on a battery (2mins) and replace it. You've well and truly had your pants pulled down. One of the many reasons so many people are afraid to visit a genuine Ford garage. That job should have been no more than £100 at a garage, sub £60 if you did it yourself :blink:
