My brake pads were shot, squealing away.
Took it to Kwik Fit Milngavie as I had no time to book into my regular garage.
Brake pads + change = £112.87
So I said OK and could you do the tracking too.
The mechanic came back with a list of broken stuff (no surprise) I didn’t know about. Now bear in mind I just had an MOT 7 weeks ago
– worn bushes front + left
– worn brake discs….they think they need replaced…
– worn shock absorbers
– two new tyres (what a surprise)
I said is the car safe to drive and the manager said ‘you would be safer having all that fixed’.
So I said to him – ‘Bill me for the brake pads, I’ll take it to my regular garage and get it checked out’.
He didn’t look happy. ‘It’s up to yourself, but your car might ‘no’ be safe to drive’
I paid the bill and told him I was broke.
I took the car to the garage at the weekend and they said
– brake discs, worn but OK
– bushes, worn but OK
– tyres, worn to 3MM but still street legal
– shock absorbers, no problems at all.
Just a ripoff, Kwik Fit Milngavie are there to totally con/rip you off. It appears that any car part that has had more than 1 mile of use is up for replacement at Kwik Fit Milngavie.
Kwik Fit Milngavie – bone head con men with the deceptive sales skills of a baboon and the mechanical skills of even a lesser animal (maybe a rodent).
Avoid Kwik Fit Milngavie!!!!
