I have used Kwik Fit twice before, NEVER again!
First time was to replace an exhaust back box on an old Volvo estate. They "couldnt" split the pipe so kept cutting it back till they got to almost the downpipe and replaced the lot. I know they get tight, but they didnt even try and it cost me 3 times what I was expecting to pay.
2nd and last time, I bought a Citroen CX 2.5 GTi. Great car, almost impossible to remove oil filter (access is underneath at the back of the engine between hot gearbox and hotter exhaust), so i took it to them because they were doing a cheap oil / filter change with Mobil one.
They got the car on the ramp and after lots of ouches and burnt forearms, they got the filter off and a new one on and 5 litres of Mobil one in.
Then the ( and I hesitate to use the word) "mechanic" started the car and immediately revved the guts out of the engine. I asked him politely to stop, and what the h*ll did he think he was doing?
"Ah", he said, " it gets the oil round quicker if you rev it"
Well, I couldnt argue with that logic. I also noticed that most of the other monkeys were coming up to him and asking his advice, so I assumed he was in charge.
What a scary thought.
