2004 MG Other Repair Question
2004 Other MG Models Engine Replacement
2004 Other MG Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 30000 miles
I bought my MGZR 6 months ago and have just been told that it had a head gasket failure but will need an engine replacement. The replacement fortunatley is covered by warranty however only up to £1500. Surely they will replace with a reconditioned engine which I have heard failed all dynometer testing. What can I do as this car is on finance for another 3 and a half years and I fear that this is the start and not the end. To top it off the sales executive joked that they will replace it with a cheap engine from the scrapyard and pocket the cash. What can I do? Please help?
The engine does not need replacing .. the head gasket needs replacing .. the cost of a gasket is around £10 .. the labour involved in changeing this gasket should be around 3/4 hours .. so even the most expensive garage on the planet is not going to cost £1500 to repair this ... go back to the garage and explain you have had a quote from elsewhere for the repair at a cost on £400 .. ask for a breakdown of their repair cost's and why it is costing so much !! this is a common fault on this vehicle !!
