Help! Repairs required??

05 March 2009 - 05:50 PM

I have a 2003 Ford Focus TDCi

Just had my Focus back from the main dealer, and after a visual health check they have found a few faults.

The main one is "o/s/r and n/s/r trailing arm bush split" which according to them is a MOT failure. They quoted 382 to fix this (labour and parts included). My focus had its annual full service at my usual independent garage, and they said the bushes were split but thats a common issue and he's never had to change them.

Is it really an MOT failure and is the price expensive? Not sure who's right - the independent garage or main dealer??

The other issue is with the brake disc's - they need replaced. They have quoted 207 for front and 212 for back (parts and labour included). Thats 420 in total . I know they need done, but is this price excessive?

Anyone able to help?
