attention all evo owners, avoid this garage at all cost if you dont want to be ripped off. Took car there yesterday to find out why speedo, clock not working and why heater comes on at 25 degrees with full air con. After going for the car the garage spent 1 1/2 hours looking at it, only to be told that the MUTT 3 wouldn't talk to the car. They had no idea why the speedo wont work or why the clock isnt working, i asked if they checked the bulb to which i was told that it might have blown but they didnt check that. This garage is supposed to be a Ralliart garage, but after talking to the the owner who said thay dont deal with imports they only deal with cars they sell. So after the garage looked at the car couldntfind the problem and for someone to just check a few fuses, which i already had done, they decided to charge me 76 for F**k all. So the moral is this Mazda garage is now selling Mitsubishi motor to which they know very little about and if you need work doing on your car make sure it was bought at the garage, otherwise they will rip you off. Luckily Ralliart in Hull have offered to look at the car to find the problem at no charge.

Was on the phone to these last week, Tony I seem to recall, service manager.
He stated that he had technicians who were Ralliart qualified & they had all the correct equipment for carrying out any task on Evos.

Can they legally charge you?

You had a contract with them to fix a known problem but they couldn't fix it so didn't complete the contract.

Agreed. You should have told them to get stuffed (politely of course). That's a bit of a p*ss take isnt it !

Hope you get it sorted mate.

Try BTR prep http://www.btrprep.com/. They are Evo specialists, charge less per hour than the main dealers and really do know their stuff.

I've used them for the last 4 years. Always very good service and exceptional at identifying and sorting any problems.

i go there all the time for servicing. For both my evo 8 and L200. Never had a problem ever. Infact they normally bend over backwards to fit me in now as they know me quite well. Sorry to here about your troubles there :(

update on vehicle now working perfectly well problem was the interior light fuse had blown and it cost pennies to replace the only problem being was a RALLIART garage did not pick this fault up after saying they had checked all the fuses and charged me 76.38. THIS GARAGE DOES RIP PEOPLE OFF.
