So I had my TÜV due this month on my car (9 year old BMW 316d). Had bought the car two years ago with clear HU/AU. It's been driven around 23k in two years. Took it to ATU and it failed because of issues with brake disk, brake lining etc. Me being a complete novice to car repair, straight up asked them what will it cost to fix everything. They emailed a two pager with a long list totalling around 1000 euro. I said OK it is what it is and dropped the car this morning. Today after I picked up the car from ATU here in Nürnberg I noticed:
If I let go of the steering, the car veers to the right. Have to keep the steering around 15 degrees to the left to go straight
Got a bunch of error messages from the onboard computer: DSC (dynamic stability control), DBC (dynamic brake control), FTM (flat tyre monitor)
Never had these error messages before so this is completely related to the work the ATU did
In going to take the car back tomorrow to discuss with ATU. What I'm wondering is:
Is something like this normal?
Did I get taken for by the ATU and should have instead taken their Kostenvoranschlag to an independent garage to get another quote?
If the ATU broke something during the repair, are they liable?
What's to prevent them from sticking me with a bill of like 1600 euros to have everything fixed?
Any advice / comments will be more than welcome!
