Well, don't know where to start. My car is an import, hybrid, but it is no different to any other car and no different to any Toyota hybrid out there. It takes certain amount of oil of certain grade and viscosity etc. This garage claimed to be a hybrid specialist. Nothing could have been more deceiving than the 'specialist' part. I booked full service and MOT for 2 vehicles via the website form and this was confirmed over the phone same day. Since the car is an import I'd translated and printed all information from the original service manual and left it in the car for the engineer to read. This consisted of all the oil info, filter info etc. When the booked day had come I arrived at the desk only to be told the vehicle is not recorded on their booking but "they will slot me in somehow" and I should leave the car and come back later. Hmmm.. Went back home and came back in the afternoon to find out that It has been serviced and MOTd. Great I thought. Then I asked about the oil that has been put in the engine during the alleged service only to be informed that it takes this kind not that kind etc and all is fine. When compared with manufacturer specifications, my car had been filled with an incorrect grade. It even has been stated to me that the car has 7 filters and all of them had to be changed with great difficulty. Hmmm.. Since I know my cars pretty well and usually do service on my own, when I came back home and had some spare time I decided to check few things and discovered few other bits: oil level too high, polen filter not renewed, air filter cover not on properly and I would question if air filter was really replaced. I wonder what else had been omitted and if all 7 filters that this car doesn't really have were indeed changed. On this occasion I should have done the service myself. Will not come back here again.
Fair, friendly, honest garage
The guys at Bodymek are top class. I had an issue with my Caddy on my journey down to London. I popped in and they had me on my way in 10 mins! Highly recommend these guys!
