I assume you have not paid the bill then? How old is the vehicle and how many miles has it done? Is it under warranty please?

JACUSTOMER-028vy5ci- : 56 plate mitsubishi l200 pick up 89000 miles no warranty I have spoken with a few garages and they would normally give a three to six month warranty on head gasket repairs mine failed after 3500 miles two months it did not over heat second time head was not skimmed just new gasket fitted first time in garage i
JACUSTOMER-028vy5ci- : Not paid second bill this is on going from oct last year new engine was fitted second week in December last year

How much is owed to the garage in total? Was it something the garage would have known of failed?
