got to say, i heard nothing but bad news about western but seeing as im 5 mins from them i thought id still give them a go. spoke to andy tulloch who seems like a sound enough guy, but these prices are a ****in joke aint they?
got a new track rod arm from them earlier this week for £98 and they quoted me £150 on top of that to fit it! can you ****in believe that??? ill stick with my usual mechanic thanks very much western. seem to hear good things about phoenix mitsubishi so perhaps their worth a go.

To me I have found they can talk the talk but when it comes to walk the walk they fall down.

& ye, their prices are rediculous. I saved over £95 when I serviced my car at another Mitsi dealer

They are aware of what has been said on the forum as one of their MD's came online and put up a post!

They didn't get to the bottom of the dealer survey for nothing...

If youve got a spare 5 minutes read this thread, it opened up a can of worms.
