I went to get 2 new front tyres at Kwik fit but they refused to do them unless I also had the rears replaced as they were the incorrect speed rating for the car. Apparently my current ones were only rated to 130mph, yet my car's top book speed of 131mph meant I must have the next rating up! I walked away.
I think it depends on the area, I've never had an issue with the one near by, the MOT tester is a good honest guy who knows his stuff. I do all the work on my cars so I use them for a cheap MOT as I know it will pass.

If you are getting a service at a main dealer at the same time then always ask for a discount on the MOT.

Really?? This is my first MOT so I thought this was cheap and best. Also Kwikfit being a well known company too.
This maybe useful reading for you:http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/cheap-mot
I was just reading this web page. Anyways I just had my service today from the manufacturing company. My MOT appointment is on Wednesday. So it would be interesting to see how it goes. If they fail then I would fill an appeal form. :)
Many main dealers have offers when you have it tested with them, surprised you didn't just have them do it while it was in.
I should next time

I dunno why people always seem to slate KwikFit; I've often taken cars to garages (not JUST my local one!), and I've always had excellent service, and never been ripped off. I commented on my car making some odd noise whilst driving and I had my car up in the air in no time, they took all the tyres off, checked everything they could, including the brakes etc, and ensured it was fully safe to drive. It took them just over two hours to look at my car, and they didn't charge me a single penny!


​Partly agree but last time I took a tyre in for puncture repair they charged me £17. I suppose that I had got used to them doing free repairs for all those years. Such is progress
Any takers for a 15 year old car?
[email protected]
I've just gone with green flag, recovery plus £61, £50 cashback through quidco effectively £11, it tracked ok, so hopefully I'll get it.


​Its always risky relying on cashback to get a cheaper deal you should remember that it's only a bonus if the cashback is paid ;)

Cost you more than £80 in extras when they try and fleece you for brakes, new alloys a new engine etc, whatever these con artists can try and get out of you.

AVOID KWIK FIT.


Who said you had to get the extras done? They will recommend work but as long as you say no they can't do anything to charge you more than what you went there for in the first place!

chrisking84
Why are people talking about extras like breaks ect??
This is about tyres!!
Last deal I got on tyres was with kwik fit, beat black circles and other internet site. Plus I was cheeky and asked if they would do the wheel alignment half price which was £15 cheaper anywhere else!
Why do people rate cold when they clearly don't know what they are talking about????


Like most, I wouldn't let them any where near my expensive alloy wheels near mind touch anything else on my car!

Most local garages will do the tracking for free if you buy 2 tyres. All my locals have done. Also, if £15 is half price, it still ain't that good value. That's the going rate round here

Same again. I wouldn't go near these. Very pressurised selling, especially to vulnerable. I was disgusted with what I witnessed and walked out of the Balby, Doncaster branch. They had me waiting to be served, whilst intimidating a lady into having lots of work done. She said she'd go away and think about it, but they went on an on at her, while I was there it went on for long enough, so walked out. Also had a very bad experience with caravan tyres using their mobile service. And the excuses they made...apparently it's very difficult to get hold of standard caravan tyres...appalling from a large, national company if this is the case, as I could have gone to a local tyre garage and had some fitted the next day, but only went and paid their premium for their mobile service...what a mistake. Was over 2 weeks from start to finish and numerous phone calls on my behalf.

Sorry to ramble, but it really got me angry. They have customer service issues and need to train their staff in a different way. Pulling the wool over vulnerable peoples eyes isn't good!

Well the tyres have been fitted and my pristine alloys have suffered some minor damage. Fortunately I took videos of them this morning and just spoke to Kwik-Fit on the phone who seemed to be very helpful and understanding. The man on the phone said they will build a case, review the evidence and book Chips Away if necessary. Time will tell how well they handle the case.
Looks like I got myself a good deal then, shame about them hiking the price for everyone else though.
now available at quoted 225 - but £157! good news is 235 has got cheaper :-)
johnshutt
in my experience 17" winter tyres are hard to come by for a reasonable price. I resulted in buying a set of 16" steel wheels and fitting 16's - ths also made the swap easier. alloys with summers for errr the summer :) and winter tyres for post November blues.

http://www.mytyres.co.uk is likely the cheapest place to buy winter tyres. then swing by a local fitter slip him a tenner and see if he'll do the fitting.

I just bought four bridgestone winter tyres from oponeo and they were about £10 cheaper per tyre than mytyres
I notice on Oponeo that these tyres are £93 delivered. I just had 4 winter tyres delivered from them with no problem.I imagine you should get them transferred over for about £15/Pair

Buying service you have MOT for £20. If your car fail the test you can refuse repair

Not bad after today's experience. My car failed MOT because of exhaust which was really in bad condition, I should have repaired it after last winter. The extra cost was £159, I have no idea if it's too much? Well I'm fine with that anyway, it was done all at once.

Wow, the amount of people making random stories up just to get their moment of fame is sad."They sprayed WD40 on my shocks and told me they were leaking", really? You've been watching too much Watchdog on the BBC. Wherever I go for an MOT I always watch the tester carrying it out.

Not voting on this one, but £30 is what paid from my local garage after a quick search online

Buying service you have MOT for £20. If your car fail the test you can refuse repair if you think they're trying to rip you off and go to another garage. You will loose only 20 if you right.
Then you can try to claim your 20 from them on 'misconduct and fraudulent practices' ground I think.

Advised me that my car had passed but that I would need £1100 worth of repairs in the following 12 months to get it through its MOT next time. That was 3 years ago, car has passed every year since with no mention of the problems that Kwikfit had advised me of. Absolutley Ice Cold from me.

I always go in Kwik Fit with a price and they usually match it.
according to an article in the daily telegraph motoroing supplement - tyres need to be bought `fresh` - steve howat at continental tyres sez "...age-related cracking might occur...it's all down to how the tyre is used...they need to have a good workout to remain in tip-top condition".

t...he younger the tyre you buy, the more life it will have in it. you can tell this by a panel on the side of every tyre. there are four figures usually preceded by the letters DOT. the figures denote the week number and the year that the tyre was manufactured...
No way would i buy from this company.
If you're normally a kwikfit customer this is a fantastic deal, but those looking for deals should shop around the net as the major ones have contracts with local fitters and you have a price to compare with.

Kwik Fit Bristol are struggling -

Andrew Bathe went to Kwik Fit in Cheltenham Road to get two slow punctures on his BMW fixed. After waiting an hour for the first one to be finished, he changed his mind, as he had to go to work in Thornbury, and told the mechanics not to bother with the rear passenger tyre. One of the mechanics reversed his car out of the garage and handed Mr Bathe the keys.
However, they had forgotten to put the locking nut back in the wheel and the four other nuts had not been tightened up.


To give the slagging a bit of balance - I do all my own work on cars, I had a new car (new to me anyway) which I gave a full and detailed service. So when I saw £25 MOTs last year I thought you just try to fail that.....
They passed it with no problem or attempt to sell anything.
I see that the 'Headlight Adjustment' comes in as the way they recoup the discount on the MOT ..... most cars, since about 1997, have adjustable headlights from inside the vehicle, a little dial or switch. Of course, the lowest setting still must be 'set' right .... but, it's clear that is where they get their discount back from.

Kwik Fit have been - for decades - the place you go to if you are willing to get fleeced ....... a place for the gullible and those who wouldn't know a spanner from a hammer.

Definate fail, they failed by Honda Accord on it's first MOT!!!

Sheisters.

Just because a car is only 3 years old doesnt mean that its roadworthy, its all down to how the owner treats their possession. My 14 year old escort went through last years MOT with only 2 advisories which were (no surprise) a rusting sill and emissions were near the limit but that was due to an after market S/S exhaust being fitted.

As for the OP AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!! Tired to con my mum after she drove her car to the garage (5 miles) by saying that the rear calipers had seized on, laughed my **** off, after my mum pointed out that she had just driven the car fine and was only after the pads changing. Then to top it off she pointed out to the 'mechanic' that maybe he should take the handbrake off 1st.
Marked as expired over 3 -4 hours ago, so can't understand how comments can still be added. I knew by about 3rd comment it wasn't gonna work. like i say we have to go to DVA here so have no experience of garages / kwik fit or others doing MOT's.

I have used Quick fit for some years now i had a lot of trouble with independant mechanics using used parts that were duff.
i had heard all the bad stuff about Quick fit but i was in a hurry so gave it a go. I do know a bit about cars, before computers made garages essential, i did most work myself. Any how i gave my car to quick fit for a service and mot. and yes they did offer to do other jobs but made it clear that these were cautionary jobs not essential work. I was happy to see my old filters and brake shoes.

Since they have done brakes exhaust tyres and MOT as required all at the same centre I moved house and tried a different QF centre and i will not use that particular centre again as things were not as they should be, i dont believe they did half the work and the air con stopped working. cant prove it but i believe it was deliberate sabotage. so i went to the old centre for my next service. My conclusion It depends on the people not the firm some people are lying cheats some are not.
There's £20 off voucher on the ATS website for this making it £25 I think so cheaper than this and better reviews.
its a good deal thanks for posting, dont be put off by cold voting
they normally take air temp then if not improved no charge! i dont think they do any work other than recharge on air con systems

I haven't had the aircon service, but had two cars mot'd at the Bridgend branch back in November....12 year old 206 & a 9 year old VX 220,both passed but the guy explained the advisories and added a quote for the work along with the mot cert, no pressure and pleasant service.
Give them a chance before writing them off.
Hmmm better try another branch then, thanks

This is still valid. I've used them and not had an issue.
I have used Kwik Fit for an MOT a few times. One time I had a rumble and expected to need a new bearing. They ended up just needing to tighten the hub and charged me £25 for it. Yes it is a 5 min job but at least they were honest about it not being the bearing.

Another time the headlight needed a small adjustment and was done without charge. So it really does depend on the standards used at that garage. I am about to buy my fathers 2003 BMW off him so will stick it in to KF for the current £25 MOT and see what they say about it. If it has something major that another garage then confirms then we can just use it as a trade in on my fathers new car.

I refuse to go to Kwik Fit for Tyres etc, my wife took the car in there for a new exhaust, and ended up having a one night stand with Brian, a tyre fitter.

Sorry to hear that, but unfortunately,
You can't get better than a Kwik Fit fitter

Good price OP; sorry to hear you will be failing your next MOT though :p

Would never trust this shower of sh1t :(

I have to update my post and say that after a bit of a think I decided to keep an open mind and book my Land Rover into the local Kwik Fit for £25 on the basis that I would be observing the MOT. Well, I could not be happier; the examiner was a Land Rover enthusiast, very thorough and very fair with the test. The car passed with a couple of advisories (I was aware of them all) and he even adjusted the o/s headlight beam without considering making a charge. I have learned that with these national chains, it is all down to the specific personnel; each branch will be different and if you happen to fall lucky you can receive a good service. I have never visited this branch before and TBH I would only be happy if the same guy was doing the MOT again.

Personally, I would always wait and observe a MOT as it may be too tempting for a garage to 'fail' the car and then replace the bulbs and adjust the headlight beam etc. etc. ;)

Cheers

I ordered 2 tyres online at a great price and then went to my local branch to have them fitted.
While I was there I observed not just my sale but a few others and everything seemed fine, didn't notice any pressure selling.
I'd definitely give them another go
Any details of your online tyre price as KwikFit tend to be less than competitive. Looking for some tyres myself.

I think this should be forwarded to Kwik-Fit HQ to see what they have to say for themselves.

Oh, they know. Don't you worry - they know exactly what's going on. Their 'salesmen'/mechanics, call them what you will, are trained to sucker you in. It's company policy.

Shame really. They used to be a far more reputable company when Sir Tom Farmer owned them. The minute he sold out (good few years ago now), they went massively downhill. Most of the goodwill the business had went down the pan.

Word is that Sir Tom founded Farmer Autocare a few years ago for a few reasons, one of which that he was less than impressed over what his previous baby had turned into. I've used Farmer a couple of times in recent years and have been very impressed with them.

Wouldn't **** on a Kwik Fit Centre if it was on fire.

We know they know what's going on - that's the business model. But they may NOT know that WE know too! :p
My local MOT garage does cheaper MOT than Krap Fit and Hall Frauds.

kwik fit logoA Brief History of Kwik Fit

Kwik Fit first opened its doors in 1971 with a car repair centre in Edinburgh. This was quickly followed by a period of rapid growth in the UK, mostly through acquisition. Two years later, in 1973, the first overseas centre was opened in The Netherlands.

In 1981, the company launched its now famous Kwik Fit Code of Practice. It’s an initiative that the company still practices to this day. The Code sets out the service experience that a Kwik Fit customer can expect to receive in a largely unregulated industry and is considered something of a benchmark within the car repair industry itself.

Today, there are over 600 stores in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, and more than 570 in the Netherlands, France and Germany, while the company has established itself as the United Kingdom's most popular tyre fitting company.

You can find your closest Kwik Fit centre, address, telephone number, location and directions, using the online Store Finder.
