        Kwik FIT-UP 😰 I had a nasty experience at a Rochdale branch when I went for a simple brake check and the mechanic had all the brakes in pieces and said “all your brakes need discs and pads” 😤

                    As a farm tool for a business this would actually be very useful as it should be pretty much maintenance free. However, for the average consumer, it's not really going to compete.

                        I have found that most garages treat their customers like dumb kids ,the only way to be sure that the car /and jobs are done correct is either look over the fitters shoulder while being fixed - or do it yourself .I worked for Nissan main dealers and they were fairly good but even they told you - if in doubt ,replace the part ! .

                          This is what is wrong with Capitalism!
                          It also shows how they have grown to over 600 branches!
                          A bit like outsourced public services - once a profit-based company gets such a contract, they will do as little as they can get away with!
                          And if we make a trade deal with the US, we will have the same problems with a increasingly privatised NHS!
                          Many American health companies have set up UK subsidiaries, so they can rip off a slice of all that lovely public money - thanks to Boris and co.. With a bit of luck, we can stay in the EU and avoid that shit.

                            Not just these, but many others. I had an argument with 'Formula 1 Autocentres', who fitted an exhaust with the wrong connector, when I complained they would not agree they had got it wrong, and just smeared a mass of sealant around the joint. I couldn't be bothered to take it further - they rely on this mostly - so just made a point to avoid them for ever, and told all my friends about them. I think they have lost thousands of pounds in business because of a ten pound correction - so good to know, aresholes!

                                  It all started in the eighties when Kwik Fit purchased Firestone Auto Centres.
                                  In those days you were measured by how many shock absorbers you sold as an add on,
                                  There was a competition to see how much of add on sales could be conned from a puncture repair .I seem to remember
                                  something in excess of £1000.00. But it all goes back to the big rip off merchant Tommy Farmer

                                        The heat shield plate fell off my Civics exhaust. Took it into my local branch they repaired it within 30 minutes even though they were very busy and charged me next to nothing. Not all branches are corrupt.

                                          If none of the cars returned showed a satisfactory level of service being carried out across different garages, there is only one explanation. Negligence is a non written policy . Negligence being one of the main reasons for putting lives at risk. The government should intervene by monitoring works carried out in all garages of this franchise and paying the inspectors with the £ 900 millions profit they made with their malpractice.

                                              Scamming bastards . I had a VW Caddy ,went for oil change in one branch and the twat who said he was in charge said to me . Mr . . . . . . There is a grinding noise coming under your truck back axle and drive shaft . It needs replacing . I said it’s never given me any trouble before . So I left and went to VW and had it checked out . Verdict perfect . So it goes to show what skunks these fuckers are . It sailed the next mot . So never before and after have I used kwik fit .

                                                I said on ya bike , took it to same where else.

                                                      It's about time MOTABILITY told Kwik Fit where to go, they use them for fitting new tyres, balancing and puncture repairs, had new tyres fitted had a wobble at speed fitted and balanced at Galashiels branch then rebalanced twice at Otley branch, eventually stating there was a suspension problem which was not there before new tyres fitted, took it to my local garage for service tyre balance was way out perfect, come on Motability drop kick fit

                                                          When this was highlighted to suddenly was ok and got a new MOT ????

                                                                On examination, all of the fluids were on the lower limit, and the oil filter was totally clogged, so the services had not been done.
                                                                The Mot’s had failed for the same split cv boot for 3 years, with replacement bills for £100 each time.
                                                                The boot was still split when she bought the car.
                                                                If I could have proven all of this I would have followed it up but kwikfit know that this is very difficult and continue to rip off their customers.

Would you like us to do it now as we have the wheels off and the price would be slightly cheaper. I said no as I thought this sounded a bit fishy. I took my car to my local village garage a couple of days later and asked him to replace the pads. He phoned me later that morning to say there is need to replace them as they are only 20% worn.

When I went back for my car. I was given the bill for £450, and was told that my car need the front and rear pads and discs replacing at an extra cost of £450. I informed the manager? I had been quoted £300 for the tyres and that the brakes had all been replaced during the cars service only two weeks previous. In front of others customers he accused me of lying about the brakes and demanded I pay the £450 for the tyres, I refused and after almost an hour after giving £300 in cash agreed to give me my car keys. I wrote Kwikfits head office and I am still awaiting a reply two years later!

Needless to say heated argument with the manager, a full refund and a lifetime ban from quickfit. Like I would use them again. Have found national tyres to be good but bought a new car last year with Yokohammas and I can't get them cheaper than the main dealer (not that I will need any 'co I do less than 6,000 miles a year) before I trade it in for a new one in two years time
