      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

        So how are they allowed to get away with fraud? Who owns Kwik Fit? And why isn't government stamping out this fraud, and bringing these crooks to court? The banks were forced to pay out compensation for miselling PPI policies!

          My next door neighbour asked me to check her car before MOT..amongst a few minor things wipers etc the front discs and pads needed changing which I did for her...she took it to them next day for MOT they told her front brake pads were worn out and needed replacing.. which they apparantly noticed after taking wheels off...not sure how they managed that as I had forgotten to put alloy wheel security key back in car oops!!
          When this was highlighted to suddenly was ok and got a new MOT ????

                My daughter bought a Honda which had its service book and MOT certificates signed and stamped for 5 years by kwikfit.
                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.

                  I would not trust any of those types of garages. I asked for and was charged for reinforced tyres for an estate I had but just had the normal tyres fitted, but as I am not an expert did not know until it went in for a service.

                    No surprise!
                    Listening on the reception desk, the communication with a costumer made me run away!
                    And that saved me!

                            Went to qwik-fit to have 2 front tyres replaced,whilst doing the work they came and said the brake pads need replacing as well. 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.

                                        A couple of years ago, I phoned Kwikfit for a quote for 4 tyres (£300.00), I agreed, I went to my local branch left the car. 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!

                                          I took my car to have a couple of tyres change at kwick fit in Kedall, Went back, paid my money and as I'm driving out what do I see, my spare tyre (and alloy wheel leaning against the car lift with the old tyre still on. 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

The car passed its MOT. The mechanic wanted to find a fault so he can make money. He told me the mechanic took a screwdriver and rammed it into the cars radiator. Put a new radiator on and charged his customer for a new car radiator.

I worked in an independent garage and would like a pound for everyone who came into us to get a second opinion.

                                                                                              Back in the 1980’s I took my rather special fiesta XR2 , to the Kidderminster U.K. Kwikfit...... yes name and shame. My XR2 was rather special and really stood out from the crowd. They were special cars in those days. I arranged to take it in for an oil change , air filter etc... Just a minor service. Booked in at 8.30am, first one there . Left it with them, after they said be an hour or so. 11am I went back, it was still where I parked it and other customers cars in the shop. Lots of joking and fooling around going on. I saw guy t reception who apologised and said they had a rush on..... even though there was no one there but me at that time. He promised it would be next in the shop and if I return 2 hours later it will be done.
                                                                                              2 hours 15 mins later I returned. As I was walking up to the garage I heard this loud revving, wheel spinning and erratic driving.
                                                                                              Yep you guessed it. It was my XR2
                                                                                              The lads did not notice me, as they were laughing too much as I walked straight into the shop.
                                                                                              I went behind the counter straight into the office. Manager was as thick as shit
                                                                                              Me “ manager do your staff treat all the customers cars like that?’
                                                                                              Manager ‘ no, no , they are just moving the cars around’, he heard it but did not even get up to look what was happening.
                                                                                              I lost it with him, I am livid and he just looked at the damn floor.
                                                                                              I took his name, and walked out. By now my car was in the shop. The kid getting out of the driving seat I grabbed him and threw him across the shop floor. I wanted to kill him.
                                                                                              I was not violent as I cannot be for my job as I cannot have a criminal record
                                                                                              I got in my car and drove off.
                                                                                              I rang Kwikfit head office. They gave me an address to write to. No internet in those days. I wrote many letters. Not one reply
                                                                                              IT IS WORRYING THAT THEY STILL OPERATE AND NOW OFFER EVEN MORE SERVICES FOR THE MOTORISTS.
                                                                                              SAVE YOURSELF THE HEADACHE AND GO ELSEWHERE. ........ RANT OVER .....

Went in for new tyres, but they insisted that his cars brake boots were damaged. My Dad refused and went to an independent garage, who suspected that both had been intentionally neen slashed. Avoid Kwik Fit like the plague!!!!!!!
