Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
I presume it is MOTed? So the advisories did not cause it to fail?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes its MOTed so it didnt fail. Ive asked for a list of the repairs from the garage doing the repairs as i believe maybe it shouldnt have passed

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.

Have they set down in writing that there were no advisories?
