Ripped me off for £400 by running down my battery & alternator while the car was left in their care. I put my car into Kwik Fit Cheltenham Road, Bristol for an MOT the day before I was due to go on holiday. The car failed its MOT and Kwik Fit told me that they needed to order a small part in order for it to pass and I should keep the car on their forecourt while I was away, otherwise I'd have to pay for a retest if I took the car away.
I left the keys with them and they said they'd fit the part and pass the car's MOT while I was on holiday. I came back from holiday to be told that my battery and alternator had both died while the car was on their forecourt and it would cost £400 to replace them. Both were fine when I took the car into them, and also when they originally tested it for the MOT.Without the battery or alternator working I couldn't take the car to another garage, so I had to pay them the money. Looking at the bill they gave me there was no original part they had to order on it. Avoid these con artists at all costs
