Advantages: still trying to think of one!
Disadvantages: do not tell you the true facts
My wife went into our local kwik (ruislip) fit to get the mot and service done for our corsa. 3 hours later, we get a call saying that the mot had failed, for the usual reasons, 3 tyres needed changing, bulb needed changing, break pads had gone and need replacing. We got quoted £400 to get the changes made. The guy clearly said to us that it had 3 major failures, the tyres, the bulb and the breaks and asked my wife what she wanted doing.
My wife isn't too clued up on cars (neither am i for that matter), but called me in a bit of a panic as £400 in anyones language is quite a lot of money. I asked her to call back and ask for the mot failure report, and suddenly the SAME guy changed his tune! The mot had failed, but actually only failed for the bulb and one of the tyres and to change this actually cost £50, and not £400 he had initially quoted us! The rest were changes that he recommended we get done, but were not the reasons for the MOT failure as he had initially told us. All in all, we found them to be very misleading, and if they can take advantage of you, in my experience they will!
Summary: won't be using them again
