Get the smelling salts!

Yesterday I went into Grantham to have my Nissan XTrail serviced. Now this is a two year old car, serviced every twelve thousand miles according to the manufacturer's guidelines/warranty and I have just achieved twenty-two thousand miles.
The brake pads were not worn, the brake discs were not pitted and the tyres were just dandy thank you. So basically an oil change, a new oil filter, new air filter, check brake fluid, screen wash, tyre pressures, adjust handbrake. Oh, and replace the diesel filter. One and half hours later...

"The car's just fine Mrs K, be ready in a minute, here's the bill.. £315"

Ever felt ripped-off?
