Simply Mum, my brother in law used to be a mechanic so I should have asked him to look at it. I am just sick of spending money getting it fixed. I think the place I took it too is just trying to get money off me cos they did a major service on it so they should have known there was a leak (and a hole) in the radiator hose. My last car didn't have much problems but I had to upgrade to something a bit bigger.
I can probably save a few grand by the end of the year and maybe my dad can help out in some way, hopefully.
