“sexist”

Written on: 01/02/2015 by Charlie454 (1 review written)

Called East grinstead for price for exhaust - told them exactly which part I needed - said he couldn't quote a price as too many variables - I said "rough guide" he said I'd have to take car into them for them to look at! Asked a guy in my office to call 2 hours later same question they gave him a quote! Thought as I'm a woman get me in there get my car on ramp and try n tell me I need complete system I expect !!!!… Read Full Review

“passed my 2004 ford focus every year on £30 mot”

Written on: 27/01/2015 by shelley.reed (1 review written)

Ive read so many bad reviews about Qwikfit especially with regards to their cheap mots. Apparently they offer you a cheap mot then slap you with a huge bill for work that is apparently needed. But I have to say i've had no problems with the Qwikfit on Market Street, Aberdeen whatsoever. Each year I have taken my car for an mot there it passes. The first year it failed on a brake light and I had a box of bulbs in my car and the guy didn't even charge me to fit it. He just retested my car then… Read Full Review

“Kwik Fit Bridgend Horrible”

Written on: 27/01/2015 by MandyLewis1986 (1 review written)

Took my car to Kwik fit Bridgend for an oil change services back in September. The price quoted seemed great, the car well straight in and the guys seemed very friendly. So I went on my merry way. An hour later I received a phone call from Kwik Fit saying that after they did a check the car needed a new alternator, timing belt and new break pads, this would cost a extra £850. Told them in no uncertain terms not to touch the car. A new alternator, what kind of idiot do they take me for. Do not… Read Full Review

“KWIK FIT - Avoid”

Written on: 24/01/2015 by amaund (1 review written)

Don't ever bother with Kwik Fit, what seems like convenience at first soon turns into frustration and wasted time. Trouble is the day to day running of the place seems to be left to school leavers/teens with not much experience mechanically or in customer service. One without the other you may get somewhere, unfortunately when both are lacking you're only ever going to end up with a headache at best. Took my car in for MOT on a saturday, it failed due to suspensiom bushes needed to be… Read Full Review

“After about six weeks my car started to rattle.”

Written on: 19/01/2015

On a few days holiday in Devon in July I noticed that the rear brakes on my car were making a grating noise. I had passed Kwikfit in Newton Abbot so I went back to them leaving my family on the beach. It was quickly diagnosed that the rear brake pads were very badly worn and that I would need new pads and discs. I accepted a quote of £258. The parts took a couple of hours to arrive and I watched the mechanic fitting them, at one point he struggled to make the pads fit and ground down some… Read Full Review

“Avoid Kwikfit Reading”

Written on: 15/01/2015

Briefly, we were lied to about how long the work would take and about how much we would be charged. Worse - and when the car was "ready": it was returned to me with a dangerous fault in the wheel allignment which caused the car to veer across the road immediately. I returned it straight away; they attempted to fix it; returned it to me as bad as before. I had to return it a third time before it was corrected. So, a "one hour" job took 5 hours of waiting around, the staff were surly and… Read Full Review

“MY FAULT? I DON'T THINK SO MATE.”

Written on: 10/01/2015 by 293Armstrong (1 review written)

I recently broke down outside a Kwik Fit centre and needed to have an alternator replaced - £280. I was also advised to have two tyres replaced so although it wasn't actually necessary I agreed to it - another £100. TWO DAYS later I collected my car and drove for 15 minutes before one of the tyres exploded/deflated/fell apart. Fair enough the staff collected it within an hour but 3 separate staff on 3 separate occasions implied that it was somehow self-inflicted. After 23 years of driving and… Read Full Review

“BMW change oil service”

Written on: 10/01/2015 by tony6777 (1 review written)

It was my first time with Kwik Fit and what I am going to tell are just facts, I leave the conclusions to the readers. I went to Kwik Fit in Clevedon for a BMW oil change service and MOT tempted by a promotion. This kind of service takes in average half day in a BMW dealer. It took an entire day (left the car at 8AM and took it at 6PM). The oil quality was average but not premium, they did not reset the service schedule in the car ECU and when asked to do it first they said that they have… Read Full Review

“Good service despite all of the bad reviews! ”

Written on: 31/12/2014 by lauragrainger91 (1 review written)

I visited kwik fit to have my MOT carried out yesterday. I was apprehensive to go after reading all of the terrible reviews online; and as a young female who doesn't know much about cars, was worrying that they will spot me coming from a mile off and try and get as much money off of me as possible!! This however, was not the case. The staff were polite and friendly, despite being rushed off their feet with back to back appointments. They were running slightly late so I had to wait a bit longer… Read Full Review

“KwikFit Bagshot - Avoid”

Written on: 30/12/2014 by Daniel440 (1 review written)

Having gone here to replace a faulty flat tyre I was informed my existing set were wholly unsafe for winter driving and urged to replace both front tyres to avoid an uncomfortable driving experience. This was shocking news to me given they were purchased within the year at this branch previously which I wrongly assumed would be suitable for all year driving conditions. Apparently having spoken with the manager here it is common practice verging on necessity to purchase two sets of tyres for… Read Full Review

“Never use Kwik Fit”

Written on: 24/12/2014 by Christomusic (2 reviews written)

Booked and paid for two tyres to be fitted only to be let down at the last minute because of an alleged issue with the fitter. Was then told it would be a week before they would deal with it. When I explained that the day that they were offering was inconvenient and too late for me as they needed to be replaced urgently, they point blank refused to do it earlier. To cap it all I then offered to call at a service centre instead only to be told that the transaction could not be transferred and I… Read Full Review

“Kwikfit Mansfield”

Written on: 23/12/2014 by xmimix88x (2 reviews written)

Absolutely disgusted with the service received by Kwikfit Mansfield. My independent mechanic, whom I have used for the past 10 years and have never had any problems with, recently serviced my car, and informed me one of my rear tyres was near the legal tread limit and would need replacing ASAP. I was only able to sort this on a Saturday as I work full time. Unfortunately, the small independent tyre garage I would usually use was packed to the rafters, and I didn't really want to wait over an… Read Full Review

Partac's Response to xmimix88x's Review

Written on: 25/12/2014

There's a very good reason why your local independent tyre shop was packed to the rafters, and why KF was able to serve in 5 mins - after your experience with KF you won't have too much trouble working out what the reason is!

Seriously though, you are far better finding a local independent tyre shop and sticking with them, even though it might mean waiting - they have usually built up a good reputation which they are proud of, and are anxious to retain it.
KF are just after the fast buck, will sell you things you don't need, and don't give a hoot as they don't have any good reputation to keep.

“Tonbridge Kent Kwik-fit - avoid”

Been using my local Kwik-fit in Strood Kent for years without problems. But last weekend needed an urgent MoT and only nearby branch that could do it Sat or Sun was Tonbridge which is about 15 miles away. They failed it unfortunately on one item, but after the test was finished they forgot about me and left me sitting there for 45 mins until I complained. Had the part replaced and back here again a week later. They did it again...still sitting here an hour and a half after arriving with my… Read Full Review

“Time wasters”

Written on: 05/12/2014 by WestonMcMahan94 (1 review written)

Used Kwik fit for a few years on many occasions , competitive in price but other things start to happen to your car. Whilst using Kwik fit Ive never ever had so many NAILS in my tyres , stopped using them and not had a nail or tack or screw in them since (probably spoke to soon). On 3 occasions a had to car take the car back to have the wheel balanced which was included in the price ... On the 3 occasions they used the same excuse that 'we identified a fault in the balancing machine yesterday… Read Full Review

“Kwik kon”

Written on: 03/12/2014 by RhiannaBurke (1 review written)

After purchasing tyres I accept the free wheel alignment, what a mistake !!! The branch tell me the camber and castings cannot be adjusted on my make and model of car. Shame the main Mercedes Benz dealer disagree but there again Kwik Kon are the professionals !!. I call another branch who tell me something completely different to the original branch so one of them must be lying !!. Kwik Fit = Poor Quality work --- Poor Value for Money --- and Kwik doing the wrong work all in an effort to… Read Full Review
