Beware, they have a reputation for finding things wrong with your car that they will fix at a cost, usually a very high cost.

Do these guys do a free re-test?

Every other garage in MK does it for 20£ without any vouchers, brrrr.....

I have my car serviced and mot. Told me the price quoted for service was for normal diesel oil but my car required synthetic oil --so more money----exhaust smoke---which i had treated b4 --then head light beam not sharp and not alined ---rubbish.Ended up paying £100 more then quote or price agreed. Wrote email to Head office but no reply.:x

In my last MoT which was from a local garage I paid 150 extra for replacing wishbones. I was and will never be sure if they were just replaced to make money or to make my car real safe. Remeber I paid appx. 50 for MoT on top of all this.

Bottomline is, you have to be lucky to escape rip-offs. Going to local garage may not help always.

I used Bristol Nationwide last year with a half price offer and the only thing they found wrong was the little bulb over my rear license plate which they fixed free of charge, so I'd use that [place again. Not due til June though so hope another offer pops up then.

Go to the MOT places that only do MOTs - not repairs.
These have no vested interest in failing your car unlike the usual repair centres that offer mots.

There are lots near me. One even charges £30 ( and no retest fee). At another you don't even pay if your car fails ( these are online - [url]www.motmax.co.uk[/url] )

Brake discs are quite expensive, over a £100. throw in brake pads for around £60 and MOT £50, that sounds about right but doesn't sound like they gave you much discount

That is assuming they really needed to be changed.:whistling:

True but after 5 years discs probably do need changing, I'd have been more suspicious if it had been 2-3 years. They probably rub their hands though when they see a car roll up which is outside it's warranty period :-D
#21
Took my car for an MOT at Nationwide and said my brake pads were 80% worn and quoted £105 to change. Told them i not too worry and did them myself. Took the old pads off and was only about 40% worn. Wouldnt trust them!!
Although obviously each depot is going to be different and this is a cheap deal but add the 'extras' Nationwide will try to get away with and this could end up quite costly!

yeh its hard to tell since i know nothing about cars whether they really needed changing, worst case scenario i always think of is that they said they changed them when in actual fact they didnt do anything!
but would they stoop that low i wonder....................
if it werent for a mot pass as i needed road tax cause it ran out i would of got a 2nd opinion whether they needed changing, damn u mot certificateeeeeeee!

I posted this deal after I booked for mine in a centre near Acton, London. My car 's MoT was already expired but I was in no hurry because I wasn't using it much (except weekends). I waited extra 3 days as no slot were available before that. Today I called them up to confirm that I am coming. Bloody hell they said sorry you are not in my system. Despite mentioning confirmation email all they said that an email was sent shortly after to convey non availability. I didn't receive any email. Why the hell allow people to book if no slots are available.
I was disappointed because I needed my car for the weekend. So finally I paid usual price for my MoT from a local garage, and guess what; no fault was found so all done in just £45. Not a bad deal. I never knew I had a nice garage near to my work.

I wish I could vote this cold because of the problem I had. Sorry guys, but I am sharing this as a headsup. Please call them up and confirm beforehand and be prepared for a situation like mine.

I completely agree with this.

Go to you local council site and look on there for one. Many garages are out there to make money by milking people.

Go read up on this issue at MSE.

DEFINTELY agree! Completely fair then and they dont want to see you back again either adn they will give you an advisory rather than fail so you get the garage to repair it!

Free if you make repairs and bring it back next working day. Half price (half of £53 though) if you bring it back within 10 days.

Our local is VERY expensive for repairs as I found out last month, wont go there again. Wanted £95 to replace a suspension coil when my local garage did it for £58.

Worth going to a garage that will do a pre-MOT check for free (if you can find one), getting the work done b4 hand then booking half price mot with these.

One thing these are good for is Tesco clubcard points. Save up £40 and they are worth £160 at these garages so can get your car serviced there very cheap. Just dont let them do the repairs when they come back with service report. Shop around!

Discs to buy about £20 a pair, only about an extra 5-10 minutes fitting time when canging pads anyway. These places are a rip off.

were they an advisory on your previous test ???

if not then unless you clock up 10000+ miles a year then id be dubious !!

i had brake disks as an advisory for 4 years (do about 5kmiles per year)

LOL, £100 for disks? You must be joking. Go to any motor factors and even retail costs should only be about £30-40, and that's for a pair.

Also, £60 for pads? Where on earth are you getting these prices from??
#31
Don't let the cheap MOT lure you in, you can guarantee they'll find something to sting you for.
Told me my brake discs were significantly worn (on a 3 year old car with 12000 on clock - unlikely). After authorising the work I rang VOSA who said there was no legal minimum thickness for discs. On collecting the car I asked to see the discs in question, strangely they said the scrap man had just collected them. Avoid like the plague if you've got any sense.
#32
Nationwide is all cowboys !!!
#33
i would steer clear (no pun intended) of such places. Thee cheaper mot prices tend to find non-existent faults with your motor. This is how they make their money, by calling you back for repairs!
#34
I happily pay my local MOT garage £45 per car for each MOT on the 3 cars my family has . Out of the 3 cars in 4 yrs only 1 time has any work been needed . If you find a good garage with decent people then stick by them & don't go anywhere near fast fit con men .
#35
oh noes by reading all these comments im pretty certain i got conned
oh well u learn from your mistakes

Many thanks

Nationwide have been ok for me, but of course the service will vary for each outlet.

Put my car in for its MOT last month. Its been making dodgy noises for a while, which im sure a dodgy garage would take advantage of. They said they noticed the rattling, but it didnt fall under the MOT requirements, so got a pass without a single problem. Paid with clubcard vouchers too.

The Mrs' car went in last week and thats got potential issues with the electrics and gears. They said the wheels were wearing unevenly and so needed re-aligning (expected as she went off-road due to some ice a few months back), but they didnt try it on with any new tyres, so hers was a cheap pass too.

Although, they did mention her brake pads having only a few thousand miles left in them, but she said to leave them.

I think for these guys the opportunity to sell new brake pads is abused, as I was told the same when my car was serviced with them last year. I thought "yeah why not - saves me coming back in a few months".......but should have instead got a 2nd opinion as they may have had a year or two in them.

Personally, ill be going back there for services and MOTs, but would advise those [like me] who dont know much about cars NOT to agree to new pads before getting a 2nd opinion!!!

TAKE SOME ADVICE FROM SOMEONE IN THE MOTOR TRADE:

This is how they make money, an MOT test is mostly subjective and its always down to the MOT tester, they can pay you to take the test and still make money by finding things wrong with the car, bushes and all sorts which are the hardest to tell if totally worn or just advisory...

Find a nice trusting garage and NEVER EVER GET THE SAME GARAGE TO DO THE WORK !!! The golden rule....If they fail it then tell them your uncles a mechanic and he will fix everything, they know next time that they wont get the business...This is how the money is made, dont forget an MOT slot for them only costs about £3 with VOSA...

Garages are still as notoriously dodgy as ever im sorry to say.....

Brake pads for my Lexus - £17.00 the pair and I find that expensive, discs are £29...Go figure who makes the money and those prices are not even on trade..lol

Heres a trick, get them to service the car (basic) then get them to MOT the car the next day and if find anything then turn it around on them and say they didnt service the car properly as all services should include a visual inspection lol
