The EU is proposing that we close all independent garages and car mechanics and force us all to only use main dealers. This would mean an increase in cost for servicing and accident repairs. Main dealers are the most expensive places to go already to have your car fixed. But you can guarantee that they would put their prices up even more to cover their increased overheads as they would have to take on more mechanics to keep up with demand. Car insurance would also cost more.The EU, in the same proposal, also suggests that MOT’s be carried out by the car manufacturer. They would also like to see the manufacture scrap the car at the end of its useful life. This would mean that you could be stuck having to stick to the same make of car and having to part exchange it every few years.
