Has the Car Dealer Ripped Me Off On Repairs?

Hi John,

Anne contacted you on Radio 2UE some weeks back about her 2002 Astra with 108,836km on the clock with a piece off #2 piston and the workshop had had the car for 2 months. After 3 months they replaced the motor at considerable cost to Anne and returned the car without washing it and with greasy handprints all over the cover on the motor. Then 4 days later it broke down with the same symptoms as the original and this time they changed the catylactic converter and have said it's now 100%. I'd like to give you an update and hear another opinion of the situation.

Regards Pete
