A while ago we had a problem with my car's accelerator. As we had only had it for four months I took it back to the main dealer that we bought it from. The verdict was that they had run all their tests and couldn't find anything wrong (A mere £100 for this investigation) However the front brake pads and discs were 80% worn and the handbrake cable was stretched. Replacing all this would be £750!
I spoke to the chap who normally fixes our cars and he said "How much???" When I took the car into him he said the brakes were fine and didn't even charge me for looking at them. The dealer had MOTd the car when I bought it and there was no advisory note about the brakes. Our chap said he finds this happens all the time, and the bigger the dealer the more likely they are to do this sort of thing.
