Should I go to a main dealer?

While it might be tempting to go to a Renault dealer, this tends to be the more expensive option. Other centres are able to offer far more competitive pricing, without sacrificing quality.

Once you've found a garage you like and trust, you'll be able to use them for all your mechanic and MOT needs in the future, even if you change your car, so it's worth taking time to find a convenient and reasonably priced alternative to a main dealer.
