An exhaust that has failed can lead to noxious fumes being drawn into the vehicle cabin and prolonged exposure to exhaust fumes can make a vehicle occupant feel drowsy, which could lead to an even greater danger.

A healthy exhaust system is critical if you are to maintain the health and welfare of the vehicle occupants, a quiet smooth running engine and optimum fuel efficiency. If you have any concerns regarding the health of your vehicles exhaust system then call in to your nearest Kwik-Fit exhaust centre for a free safety check today.

    Where's the deal? All exhaust places do a free check.
    Pan111
    ?

    I was merely pointing out that there was a place that does free checks...I also posted about their free battery and brake checks...

    Alot of people feel intimidated by going to garages and asking for mechanics to check something on their car...often feeling that they are about to get ripped off.

    Theres no obligation to buy anything at Kwik-Fit, so I posted these up. I cant see anything else on the forum relating to free checks!

    "Alot of people feel intimidated by going to garages and asking for mechanics to check something on their car...often feeling that they are about to get ripped off."

    Which from experience of the trade, is just what exhausts and tire places do with alarming regularity!

    be careful out there!

    Doesn't help that when they get you in there Kwik Fit usually charge 70-80% more than you can source yourself.

    You have taken the time and effort to post these kwik fit offers and yes, they are free, but having been ripped off by them on more than one occasion, i am a little dubious as to how confident i am of kwik fit's diagnosis. That in mind, i am not adding a hot or cold vote, just a verbal opinion:thinking:

    BE VERY CAUTIOUS!

    These lot are at it most of the time.

    For example my partner phoned me while I was working away from home and she told me that she got my father to take her car to KWIK FIT as the exhaust was making a noise...

    So the outcome was that it needed a new system, a full system including CAT.

    The cost....only £500, no much wonder they do FREE checks...hardly free considering...

    I made one call to a garage owner I know who said if the car was to need the whole system inc CAT he would guess it would come in at around £250 or thereabouts...

    Anyway, here is the corrupt part, since I woudnt trust a kwik fit fitter and the whole outfit as far as I could throw them I asked my father to take the car to my friends garage..now for the CORRUPT part

    Up on the ramp then...did it need a new exhaust, did it need a new CAT...no a couple of bolts had gave way...yes a couple, thats TWO bolts.

    So he replaced the TWO bolts and sent my father on his way at a grand cost of NOTHING...NADA!

    QuickFIT....the legal thiefs!

    Your not obliged to buy from there though?

    I always use the diagnosis check sheet to buy the bits they suggest from my local motorfactors...then pay a mate to fit them.

    At the end of the day...your pretty much boned if you go to ANY garage/mechanic unless you personally know them, because you always feel as though your gonna get ripped off!

    Im merely suggesting here that you use the FREE CHECK...I dont know why people are voting this as a cold offer...Im now feeling sad lol

    No your not obliged to buy but what if you are someone who knows no better, in this case what if my partner or father had jsut said ok if it needs doing do it.

    There is making profit or ripping folk off and really ripping the pee and this is certinally the latter and its not the first time I can tell some stories regarding this, the same goes for their brake checks too etc.

    You may FEEL as if your going to get ripped off, that doesnt make every mechanic out their a crook, I bet you if I had went round 100 garages KWIK FIT would have been the only one who wanted to replace the CAT.

    Maybe they were taking advantage of the fact it was my father...a 77 yr old man or on other cases maybe it is because its a female...think again they tried to fleece me before at the ripe age of 26 and I know a fair bit about cars.

    They are trained and programmed to rip off!

    If we went by your method, we would have still had to go and buy a full system in cat at a cost of £250 instead of a 2 minute job replacing two bolts!

    Im telling you about this offer on THIS FORUM...

    If you didnt know about it before, you do now...so people will read that there isnt any obligation :)

    People can now make up their own mind from this topic.

    Someone in reply to one of the other "free checks" I posted up, suggested that lots of garages offer this service...but whos to say they will do exactly the same thing to people, as Kwik-Fit did to your relations?

    I stated in another of my topics that I personally have been there...I had the free brake check, and they told me my calliper was sticking...IT WAS...so I bought a replacement from a motorfactors.

    Again...the offer I posted is A GOOD ONE

    They can and if they have any sense they will give it a body swerve or approach with extreme caution

    There is nothing to officially say another garage would not do this but in my experience and what I have seen in many other cases, they are more likely to do so......READERS, put it to the test....take your car there and see what they conjur up and then go straight to another garage to compare.

    So what a sticky caliper doesnt mean you need a replacement, quite often they can be freed up, but then you have to be a mechanic to take the time to bother your butt about it, not just be a gormless fitter!

    And on top of that, I put them to the test by taking in a car with perfect brakes...infact new front discs and pads and they came back with their magic sheet and claiming all the discs and pads needed replacing and they noticed the exhaust did too...and it DIDNT

    Pan111
    Again...the offer I posted is A GOOD ONE


    Aye right, if your on commision or if you have kept plenty shares and your names Tom Farmer!

    It's something they do all the time so why is it an OFFER, its part of their service, so there is nothing GOOD, HOT or SPECIAL about it

    Wake up and smell the coffee

    Wow...this topic is in utter CHAOS now :roll: :santa:

    Where would you reccommend to have these checks done then? What an idea...an alternative suggestion :roll:

    I suddgest going to a local inderpendent garage! The prices are often cheaper and work is a better standard a lot of the mechanics a the tyre and exhaust centers are not qulified.

    I worked in a garage and the fast rip type centers are always doing crafty numbers like spraying oil on the shocks then saying you need new shocks..make sure when they are checking over your car you stand and watch them!!

    kwik fits are bloody rip of company my dad went to get his car checked when they had that deal of free check up they told him, he need new brakes and brake pads and a new battery they were saying a estimate of £300, he said he will come back, he went to his local garage and they said everything is fine. a free check up but they will make up some lies about your car so you can get it repaired which doesnt need to be,

    Dreadful deal- any good rep garage will do a quick test for nothing and not try and rip you off - mods can you pull this one?

    No chaos about it, its ok pointing out free checks at Kwik fit but dont take offence when the pitfalls are pointed out to potential victims.

    An alternative suggestion would be dependent on ones location but like someone else have mentioned, local garage to keep it simple.

    Paid dividends for them and many others I bet.
