From what I have heard and from what I have seen, don't take your car to Kwik fit, ones I have known you really dont want touching your car. Knuckles dragging on the floor, if you get my drift!!
Its best to find a good local garage, who should treat you better as your more important to them as a repeat customer, I've used the same one for years, and they always look after me when I have have work done.
I cannot say too much about it, but some years ago I went to Kwik Fit and was told I needed new Shock Absorbers. I aske why and I was told they were leaking. I looked and found fresh engine oil had been squirted on them. Enough said.
I go to small local garage and they are brilliant. They've never let me down and everyone I have sent there has been delighted with the service.
One more true tale regarding Kwik Fit: My son had bought 4 brand new tryes from a supplier half a mile away from the local Kwik Fit. On his way home he stopped at Kwik Fit to see if it was true that they did custom exhaust systems (his car is modified and a mate had told him that Kwik Fit did do custom made exhausts to fit such a vehicle). The Kwik Fit fitter (you can't get better !!!) on looking at his car told him that although he could not help with an exhaust he would do him a deal on a set of tyres as the car was in dire need of a complete new set.
For a set of tyres to wear out in half a mile must be a record, we are thinking of contacting a certain record book to see if they can beat that!
