Does it normally take this long to do these repairs?

I have a Honda Civic type r 2003 model. I recently took it in for it’s MOT. It failed and needs new brake pipes, a track rod end and a front spring replaced. Aswell as a re-test. 11 days later and it’s still in the garage. I tried to contact him on Saturday including his mobile number but could not get through.

    The work is not to bad, but getting the parts can be a real pain. That is what you get for buying a Honda.

    You picked a crap garage. Ask them what the problem is. If the answer is unsatisfactory stand outside the garage with a large sign to warn off potential victims.

    It's summer, perhaps the mechanic has gone on holiday.

    Call at the garage during normal business hours and see what is going on. As the car was only booked in for a MOT perhaps there is a waiting list of vehicles needing to be fixed. Face to face contact is the only way forward.

    Go to the shop and ask what the hold up is, face to face. If work has not begun at all, take your car somewhere else where they're skilled. You may get stuck with a diagnostic charge. They might be having trouble getting parts.

    It all depends on the mechanic's availability of time to work on it. Clearly he is working on other autos at the same time, or waiting for parts.

    I'm guessing that your car is not the only one in the shop that needs attention. The mechanic probably had to order parts to replace the ones that failed the inspection and some of those parts are not sitting on a local warehouse shelf for your 16-year-old Honda. If you want to see your car done sooner, stop calling on the phone every 15 minutes and let the man do his work!

    Should be done the same day or at the latest the day after.
