[SIZE=2]Nah, Never had any bother with them. Never had a service from them either, mind. [/SIZE]

Just go to your local council MOT station, you wont get ripped off as they cant do any 'work' that needs doing on your car and they wont wreck it like Mr Clark would.

Ermmm I work for Arnold Clark - and we have many happy customers
otherwise we wouldn't be in business.

Every business in the world always has some unhappy customer - so I think your comments are rather unfair - (Thomson just now!)

Half price MOT seems a good deal to me - if it does need work there's nothing to say you have to have it done by them.

Thanks for this. Our car is due it's first MOT in April.
Cheers.

Thanks for this and the feedback

Good deal thanks very much for this. Never got my car MOT'd there before but will be worth it for £25!

Arnold Clark comes into my work everyday, how special do you reckon I feel? (I work part-time in a petrol station - funds the uni life )

Thanks for that used them before and they seem fine, not needed till June but will save it

Thanks!

thanks for that,Iwill use that later on in the year!:thumbsup:

They are Cowboys, second only to the evil Kwik-Fit when it comes to servicing and MOT

Arnold would be Jesse James and Kwik-Fit would be Billy The Kid. I have never yet taken my car to them for a service or MOT without them doing unnecessary work, claiming stuff is wrong or putting advisories on the MOT which are completely BS.

As the wise man said, take it to a local certified test center who will put it through it's paces and give an honest assessment as they aren't in the business of making things go wrong and then offering to repair them.

My brother works at Arnold Clark and some of the stories he has told me about customers are unreal. A classic one was a lady phoned to book her car in for service, when asked when she said on the Sunday, he informed her that they dont work Sundays and she hung up. Half an hour later her husband phones and demands to speak to the Service Manager, my brother asked how he could help him and he said that he wanted to book the car in for a service on the Sunday, once again it was pointed out that they do not work Sundays and would it be possible he could drop the vehicle in on the Saturday and he would arrange a courtesy vehicle, the customer refused and demanded that they open on the Sunday to service his car. After a frustrating ten minutes of trying to inform the customer that they did not work Sundays he said that maybe it would be better for him to seek an alternative garage if he was adamant that he required a Sunday service. Later that day my brother received a call from higher up to say that a complaint had been put in about him as he refused to service a vehicle on a day they never opened :giggle: Fortunately the management saw the funny side of it and did not persue the complaint........but theres two sides to every story out there.

If that were the case, why didn't to appeal against them?

Or perhaps was it just BS in your opinion :roll:

That's were I go , great places & as you say no need to rip you off with fictitious faults

Just want to add my voice to the others recommending getting your MOT done at local council depot.

In the past I have had too many bad experiences with garages, and especially chains (eg Nationwide Autos and Kwik Fit). You get hooked by the £25 deals and other discounts and then sometimes end up regretting it.

Last two years all family cars done at local council (search your council's website to find out details and availability). Never had a failure. Just sound advice on what should be monitored etc over next year.

One other tip that council guy told me. Pump up your tyres to required pressure before test. 8 times out of 10 this is the cause for failures on the beam test for which garages charge £10-15 to adjust your headlamps often unecessarily.

This site looks interesting and they are independent as well. I am always suspicious when a large vehicle company offers cheap MOT's or free retests.

I would expect to get a long list of problems from them, which need sorting before they will pass the car. I was always advised to get a garage who only do MOT's to do the test so that they don't have a vested interest in failing the car.
