Hello collected wisdom of motorheads... Mrs V_M owns and drives a rather fetching Polo. Having grown up with the cars and armed with a Haines manual I rather fancy that I can service the thing quite well. Well beyond its warranty, I take it to a local garage if it needs repairs and of course, for the MoT. However, Mrs V_M's employer is stipulating that the car must be serviced by a garage as a condition of her being able to make mileage claims. This sounds unenforcable to me. The MoT is the arbiter of roadworthiness and the car is of course insured. May I politely tell her employer to poke it?
