I'm not bothered about the repair costs but I sincerely doubt I wore a set of brake pads and discs down to nothing after 8000 miles of undemanding communting. Which leads me to believe that this 'service' when I bought the car was either a) not very thorough, or b) mythical. I'm leaning towards b) since the dealer who sold it to me sold it with worn out tyres, two of which were below the legal tread limit (i.e. they sold me an illegal car.) Had to really hassle them to get that sorted.
I love my car, but I'm thinking a trade in when the warranty runs out is a great idea.
ETA: This is UK by the way, so whenever I say 'legally' I'm referring to UK law, which is quite strict. This car is nearly 5 years old so it has to pass an annual roadworthiness test called an MOT. It did pass this test last August and is due for another next month.
