Can a garage charge for diagnostic work?

The short answer is yes. A garage can charge you for diagnosing a fault with your car.

However, whether the diagnostic costs are covered by your warranty will depend on the terms and conditions of the agreement. Therefore, if the work is being covered under warranty, we recommend you contact your warranty provider if you want more information on whether your agreement covers diagnostic costs.
