I got a slow puncture in a rear tyre on my Corsa and took it to KwikFit. They found a large nail in the middle of the tyre and took the tyre off to repair it. The guy then told me that the tyre could not be repaired because I had been driving it flat which I hadn't. He then quoted me £149 for a replacement tyre. The car has 10,000 miles on the clock so the tyre was almost as good as new with a full tread etc.

 

I asked him to put the spare wheel on the car and to put the wheel and damaged tyre into the boot. I then drove round to Halfords Auto Centre who examined the tyre and told me that it was a perfectly good tyre and that it would cost £19 to repair.

Thats why only uninformed people use kwikfit

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Don't have the time or the inclination to contact you. You are in a customer service business and you only get one chance with this customer. I don't see what you could possibly say to explain the actions of your staff. They saw a chance to sell a tyre for £149 instead of providing a repair for around £20. I will probably need new tyres in about one year from now so you lose a £600 sale to Halfords who will get my business in future. Don't bother to reply to this. Good bye.

That's the sort of response this company deserves. It's a shame the word is slow getting out there.

AlanTr: try using someone like ** edited ** to get your tires.On a side note, EVERY single kwikfit I've been to over the years have been utter utter cr*p! This includes branches from bristol, milton keynes and oldham (manchester) to name but a few. They pay peanuts and get monkeys. I am a car enthusiast and could (and regularly do) do a better job than some of their "mechanics" or "technicians". Unfortunately I don't own some of the more exotic/powerful tools that the garages own, so i have to put the car in and trust them.
