So, after several weeks, we got the word that the CR-V was fixed. It was going to cost us a smidge under £1K. Eek!
Drove up to Colchester in the ‘2nd car’ and collected CR-V. All seemed well. Off to the Smoke for a weekend at Brett’s workshop. Back to Colchester. Took CR-V out shopping. Problem returned!
Took CR-V back to garage. Several hours while they changed the glow plugs. Problem fixed – for now! The dearest glow-plugs in history…
We’ve dumped the RAC and gone to Green Flag. Why? After 30 years of thinking that RAC recovery would return our broken-down car to the destination of our choice, we discovered from the RAC ‘support’ line that they’d only take it to the nearest garage. What a con!
