Newest Review: ... in good order however they did agree that the sleeve cover needed replacing. Kwik Fit quoted £435 for the work but I got the work done for £95 from one of the three smaller garages and they did the work so quickly that I was able to take it back to Kwik Fit the next day, which was excellent as the test was done initially on a Friday afternoon at 3pm! My relative had a problem with another Glasgow branch a few years ago when, after getting an oil change, she drove 2 miles and noticed her oil light coming on. She opened the bonnet to find oil spurting all over the engine and the dipstick reading was showing empty. By a sheer stroke of... more

I took my Corsa into Kwik Fit on Friday, October, 25th, Titwood Road, Glasgow branch. It failed on two back tyres on sidewall damage and it also failed on a sleeve cover for a steering component. I then took it to three smaller MOT garages and they all said the same thing insofar as they would not have failed it on the tyres as they looked to be in good order however they did agree that the sleeve cover needed replacing.

Spent a fortune having total new exhaust, catalytic converter etc. 12 months ago. Engine management light on - after trying to sort out the reason for this - local mechanic discovered that when Kwik-Fit had fitted Lambda Sensor they had totally CROSS THREADED it - so the sensor had worked loose - which is why my engine management light was on. Well done Kwik-Fit you're bloody useless! And I haven't got a leg to stand on regarding guarantee because I used another mechanic - not Kwik-Fit to change the Lambda sensor! I won't be going anywhere near Kwik-Fit again. Nor should you! Use daft young kids - that's what it is. You never see the same spotty face twice!

I took my car to Kwick Fitt for MOT, was working perfectly fine. Midday I got a call from the manager with the list of expensive problems, i asked him to slow down and explain slowly and in more detail as i didn't understand a word he said, he repeated the exact same thing in a hurry and make it sound like life & death and told me my car would not pass it's MOT without all these expensive repairs. I decided to take my car to a local garage and guess what i got a MOT certificate. Kwik fitt prices on their website don't refelect their charges, they always try to make up faults so they can make up for the low charges they advertise.

I took my Vauxhall 1.7 Astra diesel into Blackpool Kwik Fits outlet for 4 new tyres ,replacement discs & pads,plus new shokkas(this is what their mechanic calls shock absorbers) as the mechanic said mine were knackered which seemed to me strange as a qualified mechanic relative of mine who`s emigrated to New Zealand had only just replaced them about 2000 miles back,so any way the job was done (total cost a whopping £1,342) ,here`s the cruncher on the way back to Poulton I had to pull up pretty sharpish to avoid a bus , it is amazing how I am still alive,the brakes just seemed to fade away and die as I had to nearly stand up onto the pedal with the greatest force Read the complete review
