MOT pass

Post by Welly » Wed Dec 20, 2017 12:01 pm

Just had the Volvo MOT'd a month early and passed with no advisories! (expires 19 Jan 2019) :o

This car has passed every MOT for the last 8 years with no issues :cheesy:

Mind you I do spend time and money keeping the maintenance up to date :wink:
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 a bit pampered, now lacking boostage, under investigation
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions, injured leg but now recovering from shock
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple, now with fresh MOT, no advisories

Well done Welly - luckily parts for Fords are quite cheap what with your fuel bills etc.... :wink:
My 406 passed the last few Mots with no advisories - but only because I made sure the indicators were 'Orange enough'.
It must be a nice and slightly smug feeling knowing your next MOT is due in 2019.

Hey it's actually becoming "economical" now it has nearly 100,000 miles on it.

Current daily average = 27.1 mpg 8)

MOT history records a reliable 6000 miles per year so man-maths suggest I'd only be £8.00 per week better* off* driving a dizzler doing 45 mpg but factor in potential troubles of running a dizzle on light work then the pez Volvo seems very simple in comparison :wink:
