I wouldnt worry about being 3 days past your MOT date.

Anyway, I use tesco clubard tokens at nationwide for MOT's. Cost £12.75 in tokens for the MOT.

Just as an aside to this which seems like a good offer. To save money try using council garages for MOT's - they arent allowed to do any repairs so can only diagnose, and therefore no incentive to rip people off. More info at MSE

You have to get deal vouchers don't you? Can't just use the clubcard vouchers that come in the post? That'd delay it even more!

Anyway, I only noticed the lack of MOT because I had to get the car taxed

And the MSE article is: ]http//ww…mot - Pity I don't have a council centre near me.

Hi Just booked my daughters car in £33.73 for end of November
Great Saving!!! Thank You !:thumbsup:

Avoid nationwide with a barge pole!!! Whats the point in saving 33% when they fail you deliberately in order to get unnecessary repairs.

Had my car MOT'ed at nationwide --> failed due to "broken bushes" and quoted £450 to repair the pair. No discounts given.
Went to a local garage and quoted £70 for the pair but he called me after an hour saying it wasn't broken and therefore no need to repair. That was 3 yrs ago and my car is still passing every MOT no problems. This was the
Leicester branch by the way.

I recognise that no all branches do that but there are wayyyyy to many dodgy people out there who would deliberately fail to get more business and nationwide are one of them.

I had a very similar experience with nationwide. They failed me on something (I forget the details), said it would be £100 to fix. I still had time and so took the car to my council MOT depot instead. I even mentioned what they had failed it on at nationwide. It passed, and has passed 3 years since too! I will never go for a discounted MOT again, or anywhere other than the council depot for that matter, where they have no incentive to fail it.

i had a similar problem with Nationwide Chester branch, failed my car on numerous things paying by clubcard vouchers

Mine was exactly the opposite last year. failed at a local 'reputable' garage needing £300 of repairs. Nationwide passed it the same day (Shoreham-by-sea). Once you get a good garage then stick with it.

I had my car mot at Nationwide a few weeks ago...it passed no problems. They seem to have alot of outlets and it was the only place I could get it in at short notice..

Yes my mot was passed due as well :oops:

Nationwide failed my daughter’s car and carried out a minor adjustment without asking. When they tried to charge me I pointed out that I had not asked them to do this. They argued that they had done me a favour because it had cost less than a retest. I pointed out that a retest charge would not have applied and they reluctantly amended the bill. Even if the adjustment had been required, which it was not, the amount was ridiculous.

Ive been using Nationwide for the last 4 years for servicing and MOT (using Tesco vouchers) , every year they have passed without faults or anything needed, they even changed a wiper for free as it was knackered, this was Lincoln branch so cant say what others are like.

as a poster pointed out. Once you find a good garage, stick with it. My experience with nationwide has been horrible but I found a excellent local one who have been great.

I've been stitched a few times by Nationwide on dubious MOT failures and would agree with the people who have said that it is purely a revenue generator for them.
