  1. Renault ZOE
    Apologies if this is long but utterly fed up with Renault. I'll try and be as brief as possible We have a Sept 2016 Zoe which we've owned since March 2019. Feb this year the standard 'Adjust Tyres Pressure' message popped up which I assumed was due to the sudden drop in temp. Reset the TPMS and...
  2. Electric Vehicle Classifieds
    I'm having to sell my lovely Vauxhall Ampera Electron in Black (the best colour!) because of a new job means I have a much longer 85 mile commute. And as there are no charging points at work, I am using far more petrol than I like to. So the Ampera has to go, to be replaced by a BEV...
  3. Renault ZOE
    Took Zoe to Bristol Street Motors on Monday 6 August to sort the parking brake recall and have 3rd year service and MOT. ZOE which we bought out of a 2 year PCP last year and now has done 8913 miles. Service cost £78 and MOT £45. Recall work supposed to take 4 days but got call late afternoon on...
  4. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    It has been a long road from initial order in Nov '17 to be told yesterday that the car has been built and now at Emden port awaiting transfer to the UK. Only issue is, unfortunately the MOT on the scrappage car (in daily use) expires in 2-weeks. I've enquired with the supplying dealer...
  5. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi everyone - my MY15 GTE is due an MOT at the end of May. Does anyone know what the best thing to do to help the Garage do an emissions test on the ICE? The current plan is to run the battery down, so that the ICE autostarts when the accelerator is pressed. Any advice gratefully received...
  6. Nissan e-NV200
    Sitting here waiting for my Leaf to be MOTd, I thought I'd look at the UK government web site about MOT tests. (italics are my emphasis) Exempt vehicles Other vehicles that don’t need an MOT include: cars and motorcycles made before 1960 goods vehicles powered by electricity tractors So...
  7. Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I got the attached letter from Nissan ahead of my 1st MOT on my apparently 80kW LEAF!!!! If only :) Only 56kW out though, do these office people know anything about the products? "We have rewarded you with a complimentary MOT Test Warranty, which covers you up to £750 of repairs" So is this...
  8. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    i guess there must be quite a few three year old Amperas around now. Mine reaches its third birthday next week, so I'm booked in for service and MOT on Monday. It's only done 15k miles, so not expecting any serious problems. Just wondering if anyone has had any MOT failures on their Ampera...
  9. Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    So after 41000 miles my leafs mot was due 15 January so I took it in early just in case. It failed on both track rod ends. Car is three years old. I thought it was knocking a bit. Lucky I rang nissan and is covered under warranty so am taking it to them tomorrow for repair. Am I first person...
  10. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    ....it failed due to "Brakes imbalanced across an axle rear (Axle 2)" I was told at the last service that the rear discs were pitted but thought they might last until the next service (7.5k until 80k). Total cost for MOT, discs and pads was £406.60, this was with the Vauxhall Driver's Club...
