The rest seems like the usual. However I rarely get out for less than 500USD when I need major work done so maybe all in all, just OK for the total work done. It is a 15 year old car so at some point instead of making car payments you make payments in repairs.
This is a rough area for some to understand but here I saved a lot of money fixing the car over buying another used or new one.
I recently bought my first car. It's a 2002 Renault Megane, 1.6. It needed an MOT so I found a garage which looked reputable online by all its reviews. I initially just wanted an MOT and they called me and said they would need to replace the two back tyres which I was expecting; and the two rear wheel bushings. In total it would be £325. The head mechanic then advised me on getting a full service. I looked in to it and thought it was a good idea. He came back and said the fan belt needed replacing and charged and extra £290 on top. So I've paid £615 for all of the above. Does that sound reasonable or is that far too much? Many thanks in advance for all advice.
