Not knocking your post in any way, but I rather suspect that they have a secondary aim in mind.
Is this a joke.

Bargain for that lot at £200, more like £500!
"You really shouldn't leave the garage with brakes like that, you will need to sign a disclaimer if you don't want the work doing now..." Pray on the gullible & all that.
and they get commission (or so I was told) for getting extra work

and don't forget that nitrogen in the tires that is totally not needed and 9 times out of 10 not even put in but still charged for. Dreadful company
Come on op you might spend more than you would expect using this site but you don't want to use a "garage" that helps you throw money away as well.
About 15years ago mot was due on my car. Knew it required new back brakes but as the weather was so bad thought I'd get Kwik fit to do them. Off their own backs they did a total Inspection of the breaking system. I only wanted new back brakes. The list of things requiring replacement was huge
They tried to sting me for £800 plus vat. Bought brakes a £10 and spent 2 hours fixing them. Passed Mot and did so for the next 7 years until I sold the car.
Kwikfit MOT failed my partner's Fiesta, telling her it needed over £600 of work to get it through. (dangerous brakes, 3 tyres, engine emissions etc.. )

In reality, it needed 1 new tyre due to a side-wall bulge. They even had the cheek to try and refuse us a free re-test within 24 hours because "You need to book, and we're full up".

I was scammed by this company many years ago and will never use them again nor any of my family and friends and work colleagues once they heard the story, in fact someone set up a site so you could put your experiences on there and it was rammed but they were made to take it down. Enough said, use this company at your peril.
Kwikfit are awful. Always make out repairs are worse than they are and want to sell new items instead. Better off to avoid
rip-off----- kwak fitt
Rubbish
Do yourself a favour and keep your vehicle away from the dimwits at kwikfit

DON'T DO IT!!!1

I can guarantee that a large number of people will be told they need new brakes pipes and then pay double the going rate for a job that didn't even need doing in the first place.
could write many negative comments here. disgrace.
Dangerous, negligent and fraudulent company.
I'd rather drive my car about without brake pads fitted than get them to touch my car.

Yeah I remember years ago it was their 'thing' can't believe they are are still doing it. No one I know will let kwik fit touch their car.
My wife's car battery was knackered and the only place she could get one quickly was Kwik Fit. They "fitted" it for her and 2 months later it failed an MOT elsewhere due to the battery not being fitted properly.
Rob dogs
I wouldn't trust them to spell brake check, let alone have them anywhere near them.
Dont do it.
cool and its a free check. oh and dont forget to take your credit card with you to pay for all the none existent work that will need doing to get your car roadworthy
Robbing gits, I was quoted £337 for rear discs and pads for the wife's car. Went to Savoy and got Front & Rear discs and pads and a full service for £400.

Never again Kwikfit
Went there the other day waited at the reception for 15 mins nobody showed up at the counter so I went to my local garage instead
compadre

Bargain for that lot at £200, more like £500!



​£500 where do u get yours done your being ripped rite off
Nothing is free at Kwik-Fit (up)
Just as worse as Arnold Clark another parasite company who will do anything to try and rip you off, they didn't see me coming, trying to charge me to replace the handbrake cable that they said had seized EH!!!
(as if i wouldn't know or feel it when driving?) when you've been driving your car for nearly 5 years we all know our cars inside out if a new noise etc... suddenly appears(_;) by phoning me up later when my car was in for just a coolant fan recall, my mates friend is a mechanic and has his own business who happily checked it out for me
after i collected it (_;) (no charge), and as i first thought, nout wrong with my car and he even showed me and said if your elec handbrake cable had seized you would certainly know about it alright the cable was like brand new no corrosion etc.. whatsoever, so when i went to put my car in again (one of many times this May, car was fine when i put it in, now getting it back ech time with a newer problem oO i told them 2nd visit and they said it was just an advisory note, EH!!! so why did this skinny bird who took my keys from me when i left my car earlier that day, say over the phone that it needed done urgently as the cable was corroded??? and wanted £147 quid off me, ****, they didn't know what to say and quickly changed the subject, well i went out with all guns blazing, and to say i'm there best friend at the mo is an understatement,
the bull **** I've overheard them say to customers as well while waiting, and talk to one another about customers who have complained when your actually sitting at the desk dealing with the paperwork is bang out of order F knows what they must say about me LOL
they are simple salespeople or should as say fn crooks who know **** about cars anyway who simple want to fleece you out of your last pound, mechanics me ****, their called technicians oO
And they are called Arnold Clark Vauxhall in Pollokshaws Rd Glasgow
So folks be warned theses cockroaches are in the same field as kwik-Bucks
and please folks unless it's under warranty any new repairs outwith your warrant (check all the paperwork to see what's covered also) don't jump in and pay these robbers, get a second opinion, pref a good friend of a friend who is an actual Mechanic, then u have ammunition against these **** and complain to Vauxhall Head Office or your car Manufacturer, they didn't like me doing that, but both can play at that game, away for a wee drink noo

ps car in next week for replacement, the thermostat is knackered, em lets see coolant fan recall problem, probably part of the fix looking at the thermostat when showed looked brand new as fan now staying on longer that it's meant too there, courtesy car once again
Thoroughly incompetent and dishonest company steer clear.

A set of tyres at a good price ended up costing me an extra 300 quid to repair the holes their apes gouged in the side of all 4 alloys. Each wheel had 3 similar gouged holes, almost certainly made by them using a faulty or damaged bead breaker. After complaining like hell an area manager inspected the car and had the gall to tell me they were stone chips.

We should share our experiences on Facebook I've had a couple of horror story's from them, how the f__k are they in business are people that gull able or has the word not been put out what a rip off this company is, I would never go back there ever
If anyone needs tyres go to tyreleader.co.uk - I paid £125 at Kwikfit and the next tyre identical was half the cost from tyreleader and cost £12 to fit at a Seat dealer who also washed and hoovered the car!
Might be free but they'll either tell you your car has a load of problems it doesn't just to get money out of you or tell you everything is fine when it's not
I sense avoidance is mandatory.

​£500 where do u get yours done your being ripped rite off


The answer was for Kwik fit. New pads shoes tyres and air con will be far more than £200!
Kwik fit should be the last place you go for anything...... Ever!
trust me, go here and you will need new brakes. no matter how good yours are. From experience you'll get poor service and poor workmanship.
