What about a section for garage feedback. If you have taken you car to a garage and want everyone to know how good or bad they were it might be an idea to have a little section for it. What do you think?
Been suggested before, but we don't want to get in to the game of slagging traders off, and also advertising traders who don't support the forum. A lot of options for abuse..... and it would be abused!
But surely if a garage has given bad service or ripped someone off then why shouldn't people know about it. Also whats wrong with praiseing a garage that doesn't pay this forum? It may be a regular garage that doesn't specialise in performance cars that someone has used and feels they should get some recognition.
I agree it would be a good idea, but constructive critisism normally
doesnt go down to well, where as praise is allways welcomed
in my line of business you are only as good as your last job..
and word soon gets around.
I agree with Lenny, in a perfect world it would be a great idea, but this ain't a perfect world. What happens if somebody slates a paying trader? Also if it were to be done you would need photographic/documentary proof. More trouble than its worth really.
i agree with lenny to, if someone needs a recommended garage then usually they ask here, the problem we will have is if a job does go wrong for whatever reason (and sometimes they do through no blame ie,changing a manifold gasket and a stud breaks, therefore extra costs) it can cause an up-roar between either members that will defend the garage and the person who feels they got ripped off, or from one garage to another, so with all the pro's and cons its best left to posting up for a reputable garage/tuner,
Traders are also very sensitive. I made a couple of loose comments about one on here (nothing major at all) and I got a bit of a PM rant. I can fully understand their position, this forum is just a larf for most of us but to the traders it's their business.
For me, a quick post requesting recommended garages/mechanics in my area gets good results. If you want to warn someone of your experience then send a PM - it works wonders and saves any animosity.
I know this topic is usually met with the typical 'get used to it' kind of approach but gunna put my side of it down anyway.
I personally completely understand why the Rule is there, protecting the people who use this site is important nd i appreciate the need for it. However, a hundred posts...
I don't mean to cause controversy in any way shape or form by saying this, but I just clicked to read the Forum rules 'accidentally' and I noticed the very first rule. I have seen many members with Avatar pics which I would say are definitely not suitable for pre 9pm TV audience.
Can we have some rules, that if you are replying to a wanted thread you have to state the following:-
It just causes a lot of wasted time with users and more often traders replying:-
"Hi there if you haven't...
I've recently joined here and I've been registered on SXOC for a while since I own a 200sx.
I notice the forums are similar but this one seems to lack a 'Breaking' section in the classifieds which I think is really useful.
Just a thought :dogpile:
