+1 I saved a fortune - in fact just taken out my contents insurance with them too :-D

so far so good for me too. Not only the cheapest with the extra bonus of quidco and free mot- But i recently put a private plate on my car. When i rang up to notify them they issued me replacemnet documents at no charge.
I thought this was great as i am used to paying £30-£35 for any ammendments

i had my car insurance with them about 2 years ago and it too 18 months to get the quidco. They usually have some cheap quotes though. Be carefull with the free MOT. I had my car looked over before the MOT and said it would pass and then took it for my FREE MOT and they found loads of 'problems' so might end up costing you mor ein the long run.

I too had the problem of my car failing on numerous matters at a kwik fit station when using the free mot voucher,I took it elsewhere and almost all of these faults had dissapeared leaving only the basic cheap ones ,bulb,wiper blade and a tyre which were all put right for much less than kwik fit quoted.There's no such thing as a free lunch or mot at kwik fit

always been more expensive for me and the mrs,,as for the free MOT i think you may find it might fail here and there more so.

That is exactly what I was going to post..........................please dont be tempted just by this free mot - as its certainly anything but free........u will end up with a massive 'repair bill'

I got the same deal last October, was happy with cheap quote and free MOT but Quidco was declined only last week after 11months! Good deal but don't count on the Quidco.

Why where you driving a car not fit for the road at all? A bulb being out, a wiper blade not working and a defective tyre are what you`d call a basic fault? That`s poor maintenance, plain and simple. When a bulb blows, replace it - otherwise the cars around you relying on your lights to tell them what you`re doing dont know what you`re doing. When your wiper blade stops working properly, replace it or you can`t see where you`re driving clearly. And for f*cks sake, replace a tyre BEFORE is goes bald - there are four small bits of rubber stopping your car from leaving the road to go through a hedge, a wall, or even a mother pushing a pram down the road.

Yes save a few quid, but not at the sake of driving a death trap.

I could not believe your post. You really are an*l about this aint ya? Barcabhoy made a very valid about how kwikfit rip you off and how bad they are at it and all you can do is blade him for taking his car to another MOT station, (which he is quite entitled to do) and geting a second opinion and proved his point. From what you say he should just have bit the bullet and paid whatever price they desided on.:w00t:

Let me guess...something wrong with the shock absorbers, the tyres and the brakes need attention mate? :whistling:

Only a fool would take a car for an MOT at Kwack Fit. Do you seriously want a clueless spotty 17 year old messing with your brakes and shocks when none of them needed replacing in the first place and paying way over the odds for it!!?!

Well said! I cant believe what he put either. That poster didnt say the wiper wasnt working it could just have needed replacing due to wear and tear!!! And as a female who doesnt know much about cars - I wouldnt know if my tyres are okay so regular take them into a garage for them to be checked................also sometimes we wont know a tail light etc isnt working until the mot.......

yes kwik fit was cheap for me too. did home and car with them.
only thing my car insurance quidco declined from april. plus - wouldnt bother taking my car into them.

i went to have a full service done on my car. its a 1999 honda accord. had the breaks discs and pads done, and it cost over £600. When I checked the receipt I had been charged £20 to replace two rear indicator bulbs - cos they were showing light thru the orange. This is on a car with orange lenses on the lights. I called head office and complained.. got a refund. You can get light bulbs dead cheap - and they dont cost a tenner each.
The staff all have to sell stuff, they must be on commission!
Its a hot deal tho, cos the insurance is cheap!
sorry for rambling - had to get it off my chest.

MOT might be a con, was worried about that, but if insurance is cheapest anway you cant lose.

their prices are cheap as, at present, their underwriters are HSBC and they SUCK!
never trust a bank with your money!!!:x

Had simuarl issues just decilned my Quidco after 5 months of waiting for payment. Waiting to see what the dispute will sort out

As mentioned on previous posts, don't count on Quidco. Still waiting payment of a tracked transaction from Nov '07 :x

I`m not having a go at him for taking his car to another test station, I`m having a go at him (and anyone else) who thinks it`s OK to drive a car with faulty bulbs,wiper blades, tyres, or indeed anything else essential.

It`s not exactly rocket science to check a tyre is it? It`s not difficult to check the bulbs on a car are working is it? Or are you one of those idiots who thinks it`s fine to drive a car with a single working brake light and no indicators, making it a guessing game for everyone else trying to work out what you`re going to do next?

No I would not class myself as one of 'those idiots' but neither am I an*l about it like you seem to be. Anyway, a good Driver does not rely on other Drivers use of Indicators etc. You should be fully aware of whats going on around you at all times. If I know I have a light out I'll change it but I dont go around the car everyday checking them and my Wiper Blades etc. I used to be a Mechanic, I know what I'm talking about and how to keep a car safe. I dont class a knick in my Wiperblade or a Side Light out as being unsafe. You come across as someone who does this, and also sticks rigidly to the Speed Limit regardless if the road is open or not and also takes extreme care if the conditions deteriorate, ie a little drizzle. I doubt you ever see the 3 mile tail back you most likely cause all the time.:whistling:

You don`t have to go round your car every day to check for bulbs - use your eyes and check for lights being reflected.

And you know utterly nothing about my driving style or ability. Just because you claim to have been a mechanic means nothing in this area - your post akes it sound as if you don`t care about the condition of your vehicle, or the conditions you`re driving in. Would you class a bald tyre as acceptable when driving a vehicle, yes or no?

No, I would never class a bald Tyre as safe, no one in their right mind would. I have a young family and take very good care of my cars, I also restore American Muscle Cars in my spare time.

So you gonna fill us in on your driving style then?

IM NOT A FAN OF KWIK FIT :x

When I had kwikfit insurance, the MOT was just useless - the only garage they were offering as part of the deal was a 40 mile round trip. I was living in central Nottingham at the time.

Why is my driving style at all relevant to keeping a car in good condition? You`ve already accepted that a failed light bulb is acceptable on a car, I am trying to discover where you draw the line. A headlight bulb out (meaning that you have much poorer visibility in the dark)? A brake light bulb, making it harder for those behind you to see that yo`re braking/have stopped? And while the person following you SHOULD see that you`re slowing down without brake lights, do you really want to rely on this when the vehicle behind you is a LGV, capable of demolishing your car?

Perhaps you`d accept faulty brakes? Or a cracked windscreen? How about knackered shocks? Where do you draw the line on a faulty vehicle?

i used them for my cars insurance before xmas, quidco tracked til end of … i used them for my cars insurance before xmas, quidco tracked til end of last month then said not paying out



mine declined as well


seems to me that there at it BIG TIME


i'm sure that gaining a sale through deception is illegal


but i'm sure they will just say that the cashback is NOT garanteed so therefor there is no deception



my advice would be NEVER USE KWIKFIT

they refuse to give me free MOT becouse I had cashback.

there at it, tell them your going to see trading standards

my car insurance is due to renewal and i called kwik fit, they said that they have the best deal on the market for me for 820 when I said that on website I can see 650 a bit confused guy told me that he can match the price, after that I said him that I found another company which will do this for me for 500 with free extras (legal cover, and something more) he could't believe and he sad that this is my foult becouse I gave him wrong details....
