independent garages

Post by ipollock68 » Sun Jun 28, 2020 2:01 pm

Been trying to get a hold of the dealership in Glasgow for the last 2 weeks via email. not once have they even responded to any of the emails - was been thinking of using an independent garage,

Looking at pros and cons??

I know what you mean but if they are on reduced staff it may be best to phone, no harm.

Independent garage could safe a fortune if you trust them, they use proper stuff and they have access to on line recording of the work.

Hi,

I presume you are talking about Prestige Jaguar, opposite St Mirrens football park. I'm an engineer, car enthusiast, and generally a fussy old bugger, and I can confirm that I've had a few dealings with the owner, who inspires nothing but confidence. I would put either of my 2 Jags there without hesitation over a main dealer. Go for it - you wont be disappointed. :-)

Thanks a kerr - yes it is Prestige, i have booked it into them for 17th July (earliest date i could get). And Douglas gave me a call today to discuss the EML light - i have heard nothing but great reviews so more than happy to go see them.

He is going to fix the issue and then bill Arnold Clark as it is under warranty and Arnold Clark cannot do the work.
