MOT due

My MOT expire 16/9, car still under AUC warranty until 17/9

Do dealers carry out MOT for free or not.

Cheers

Why would they carry out an MOT for free?

You may be thinking of the MOT insurance that comes as part of the AUC warranty - if it fails, they fix it FOC.

Hi
just a thought....

My car was due its 1st mot on Sept 1st and I booked it in to my dealer on 25th Aug but asked them to check over the car, especially the clutch which I felt always had a very slight judder.
MOT cost me 56 but under warranty (only 6 days left) they updated the software and found a turbo part was sticking intermittantly - changed it - also changed the clutch and flywheel foc.

Best 56 I've ever spent I think! Engine feels much smoother and clutch is spot on.

Bob
