Quite common at dealers and top end garages now, make you feel you get something for the arse raping you get when you give them the payment.

To show you all the little jobs they suggest you need doing
which is more cash for them perhaps  :-\
because anything pointed out on video would point to your car NOT being healthy  :P

Local Ford dealer has done these video health checks for at least a couple of years now.You also get an A4 sized sheet with columns marked in red,amber and green so when you pay the "service advisor" can show you what's good,ok or kaput or looked at another way they can try to sell more work on your car!

Yep......a full six seconds from one end of the car to the other. The mechanic (sorry,  skilled technician) sounded bored shitless with his appraisal.

They did this for my mates Merc. It was a long video  :-[ the car was a lemon. I have no idea what had happened to it in a previous life but it's as if all the bushes and suspension were made of chocolate.

Thing is, this is 3rd lemon shaped Merc he has owned out of about 6/7 Mercs. He still hasn't learnt.

Thinking about it[is it just me?]but surely your car shouldn't pass an M.o.T. and then get a health check showing there's stuff wrong with it should it?
