I had nationwide do an MOT on a previous car. It failed and they said that it would cost £150-£300 to fix the problem.

I went to another garage and it passed although there was a warning on the brake pads.

i don't know if the second garage was not doing their job properly or if nationwide is just more thorough.

My advice would be to never get a car serviced at some where that specialises in fitting tyres and exhausts. They'll invariably do the service for peanuts and then find loads of problems. Most of them are on commission.

Our car went to a tyre place last Sunday and they took the wheel off and said that there was an "urgent and dangerous problem with the brakes" and that it needed new pads and brake shoes and they could do it now for £200. Decided not to and took it our usual garage who checked it over and said it just needed new pads and they even did it all for nothing.

Now that's a good garage! :thumbsup:

I would not go back to Nationwide - had a 'free' service there by using TESCO Clubcard deals. They noticed there was a crack in the manifold and a couple of the studs holding it all in place needed fixing. Welded the crack and told me to book the car for a few days as they would need to remove the manifold and send it off to get it all drilled out and sorted - £600-800 quid was the estimate.

Took it to my normal garage and they did it for £200 as well as re-weld the crack that Nationwide had welded, albeit along the side of the crack rather than in it.......

I know this is only my personal experience, but I wouldn't go back and the advice seems the same above.

You can use tesco deals/points for sevices and MOTs at nationwide so works out cheaper imo

I have used them for both my cars over the last 3 years since ralising i can pay with points - 6 MOT's and 6 services. Never had a problem, both fly thru MOT (2003 honda accord and a old P reg 214!)

I presume you are thinking of National Tyres!
This is Nationwide Autocentres - they specialise in servicing/MOT's and 3rd party warranty repairs.
- I've found them OK only downside is they want your car all day. Last time I used them it was drop off at 8.30 and wasn't ready until 16:30. They did offer me a few extras but weren't pushy and seemed professional enough.

Yes I was thinking of the tyre place and isn't it normal for most garages to want your car for the best part of a day? It is in my experience of being a company car driver for the last 12 years and getting between 2 and 4 services a year.
