“VW main dealer Robinsonsons of Peterborugh quoted £3000 to fix a problem with my sons 2006 VW Touran being jerky and not getting full revs.
They diagnosed it as a faulty mechatronic unit in the D.S.G automatic gearbox.
My son and I had more or less decided to sell the car very cheaply as it was as it was not worth more than around £2500 even if had been in perfect working order.
Luckily I said to my son before we do that I think we should let A.D Sutton of march have a look even if only to confirm what VW had said.
Steve the mechanic there expressed doubts right from the start that it was a gearbox problem, it turned out he was absolutely right ! the fuel filter was clogging owing to a faulty fuel pump which is around £250-£300 to replace and not £3000 as Robinsons quoted to fix the gearbox ! which is perfect!
We very nearly sold a very good car for next to nothing and it it is very fortunate indeed that we took it to A.D.Sutton before we did that.
