I usually take my car to kwik fit regurarly although people have a stigma that they are "rip offs" but iv generaly found that you get what you pay for and the works always been good so dont see the issue of going back.
Up untill the other day I asked for a wheel allignment which was fine as the price stated £44.95. So the guy asked me to sit in the waiting room while he carried out the work and I could see the progress on the screen they provided. Everything was great, guys were helpful and polite untill it came to the price!
I was greeted with a price of £104 for the wheel allignment which was a joke, I was astonished. They never told me it would cost this much before it was done. I didmt anticipate how much it would cost so had only had £100 cash on me which I told the person serving me and he managed to brimg the price down to £99.95!
Now if a price stated clearly at £44.95 then whacked upto £104 and then brough dowm to £99.95 this tells me theres something not right somewhere.
I need my clutch replaced, waterpump and top mounts done next week but certainly wont be going to kwik fit unless rectified.
I personaly think no work should ever be done without being given a full price, maybe I was nieve in thinking a price in the wall would be what I pay. I felt embaressed not having the full ammount there
