Ok - I know I am gonna get flamed because people hate kwik fits, but I just bought my first car (yay!) and I am a bit concerned about the breaks not being sharp. I asked my burly think-they-know-everything-about-cars male dude friends and getting so much advice I was getting confused. I googled and found kwik fits offer a free brake, battery and exhaust check.
I have booked myself in for next week and have NO intention of getting anything done unless I can't get it done anywhere else cheaper.

Exhaust one here: http://www.kwik-fit.com/exhaust-appointment.asp
Battery Check here: http://www.kwik-fit.com/your-battery-check.asp
I am fully expecting to get cold back even though its free, but wanted to pass it on just in case
