    Mileage : 46000

    Default arrgghhh just been to kwick fit

    just been in to get a tyre sorted and got a list of things wrong now, they checked the tyres and i need 4 , the tracking is also off, and the fella said the track rod ends need replacing... he puoted me £90 per tyre fitted( they said if i get a flat they fix for free and if i hit a pot hole they replace them for free)

    ?? is this dear for tyres now as i only paid £60 each over a year ago (right enough they were not very good

    ?? im guessing tracking is around £25-30.

    ?? how much are track rod ends and could i do them myself

    Good thing was he did notice the vec-c stickers on and he said he has seen a few at shows


    KWIK FIT not kwick fit(doh)

    Do they actually need replacing?

    Is your tracking out..?

    Are your track rods actually worn..?

    These would be my first questions leaving those places

    I always shop around and don't tell them what KF have said just ask them to check tracking and tyres as most will do a full inspection,But i would ask to be shown why they need replaced so you can make judgement for yourself

    If replacing Track rod ends you will need to have tracking done anyway but i would ask to be shown the play in them first

    You always need track rod ends at kwickfit .. even if they replaced them 2 months ago and your just going back to get them "checked " per there advice after 100 miles .....

    no honest its true even had to show them the reciept in my wallet and point them to the nice still shinny track rod ends .....

    They never find an oil leak or gear box problem at kwickfit do they ?

    Go to your local back alley tyre shop and ask them to advise on what you really need.

    i have looked at the tyres and they really do need replaced tracking must be off cause the front tyre is smooth on the inside they are standard sri alloys 17inch. not sure about the track rod ends but the car is 5 years old not so if they are not that dear i might aswell change them, i worry too much having kids in the car.

    the tyres are Marangoni
