Pre warranty expiry check - lazza
What is the best course of action to take before the standard manufacturers warranty expires on your motor? Give it to the main dealer to do it and also have them do the MOT, or have it inspected properly by an independent third party?
Pre warranty expiry check - Falkirk Bairn
I have always taken it to a local garage who looks after cars out of warranty. Once over + MoT roughly £100 1 mth before expiry and he listed anything that needed attention. Good investment as what appears to be a rattle or vibration could be a lot more.

Renault Laguna gearbox on local shopowners car went 2 days after the warrranty and Renault made a token gesture of compensation. Renault parts are high cost!!

The shopowner returned the gesture to Renault - he bought a new Peugeot 407 the next week.
