Kwik Fit nearly killed me & just laughed about it & said I was making it up.

Disadvantages: the whole chirade
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 I could muster to avoid a major shunt into the back of it ,also there was a screeching like vibrational grinding sound coming from the front near to the wheel bearings I think as I applied the brakes really, really hard on down, my heart was in my mouth all the way back home,also the car was tending to wallow on every bend as though you was floating about in a rubber dinghy and it was like sliding on the shallowest of bends in the road,now get this!,when I eventually did get back home I thought I had better check the so called new tyres,guess what ,yes you`ve got it only 1mm of tread left,my first thought was oh no I must have picked the car up by some mistake before it has been repaired so I rung back & asked for the manager,the guy on the phone said why do you want to speak to the manager your car has definitely been properly serviced & repaired to a high standard so go away because I think you are making this ludicrous story up trying to get the good name of our prestigious company into the bad books ,so bugger off the deal has been done& stop daydreaming,that car is perfect,the next thing on the phone was just the dialling tone so this whole nightmare of a situation is now in the hands of my solicitor,all I can say is I am now having to use a friends 125cc Honda to commute to work on,while I await for the court case ! ,what a bloody mess they have left me in!
Summary: absolute con artists
