Can a shop hold a "defective" vehicle?
Another from the wonderful world of Facebook: if a repair shop determines that a customer's vehicle isn't roadworthy, can they refuse to let the customer leave in it?
As usual, this has generated a lot of speculation and "I've heard" and "f*** the system", but nobody has provided any PROOF of their statements.
Most say they can prevent the person from driving off in an unsafe vehicle but the owner can have it towed; one person insists that they can't stop the person unless maybe it's actually undriveable. Some have experience in the field, most just have something they read on the internet somewhere.
What does the law say?
