I just picked up my new car yesterday.
Its a Astra 1.6 16v Design Twinport, 54 Plate, 29000 miles.
It had a new MOT put on yesterday which it passed no problems.
The only problem is, when driving it for the first time, after about 5 miles a warning came up on the computer saying "Brake pad check". Now it comes on immediately, everytime i start the ignition.
The previous owner says he has never seen the message before.
1. Do you think it's because of the MOT (brake test) that this message has now decided to show?
2. How long am i able to drive the car without it causing a problem?
3. How much do you think it will cost to fix? i'm no mechanic so would probably take it to a Vauxhall dealer.
