Recently bought 2001 A3 1.8T Sport from local car supermarket and prior to collection they did a 150 point inspection (either RAC or AA can't remember) and also a full service. Last weekend (month and half after collection) i took off the plastic cover which covers the centre of the engine to discover the crankshaft breather hose totally knackered and open.
Am i correct to assume that this should have been spotted and that my 150 point check wasn't very good? Neglegence? Surely they would have spotted it if they'd check the plugs and points?
Just curious how anyone else would deal with it?
