Basically got my front brake pads changed from kwikfit Paying a masssssive 77 pounds Just for pads on my vec..
Anyway they changed them..Brakes were unbelievable poor..Unipart branded which my local autofactors sells for 15 pounds and thats without discount..
Basically they were squeking so i thought id do a 1000miles then the squeking will go away. Nope..
Took it back to them..Had to wait 2 weeks for a brake test..Gave it in and went on my way waiting for a phone call..3 hours later I HAD TO ring them to ask if it was done..they said ohh yess its done come collect it..guy said he checked but he didnt hear anything so he took them off and cleaned them...He did nothing at all because they were exactly the same as when i gave them in the first place..
3rd time booked it in waited 1 week for a brake test..this time she goes there squeking because you rear ones are not new and there not working to there full potential causing your fronts to heat up and thus why you fronts are squeking..Anyways i said thats for that theory i paid you to put a pair of decent brake pads on which if you had they wouldnt have been squeking..
Anyway i waited in the reception and she was kinda shocked that i was waited..She even said are you going to wait..You might aswell go because it isnt going to be done for an hour..i said ohh no i dont think you lot do anything so yes im going to wait and watch to see if you do anything..
Anyway they changed the brand of pads to ferodo..(good brand) and no squeking..
BUT BEFOREEEEEE I got into the car OMG...basically she made me sign a sheet saying what they had done..and what P***&d me off was it said ROAD TEST YES CUSTOMER COMPLAINING ABOUT SQUEKING I COULDNT DETECT ANY SQUEKING..i was erm when was this imaginary road test done? and she goes trust me i did a road test i said trust me you didnt..etc etc she said i did about 5 times..then i said the only time you drove my car was when you moved it from the bay to the ram and 5 second walk away..she goes YES THAT WAS THE ROAD TEST..
After that she goes you are soo rude etc etc..then there was a man from rac there next to her..and she goes you know even if you had gone to vauxhall they wouldnt have given you anything better then unipart..they dont make there own parts.i said erm they would have given me better tehn unipart for 80 quid trust me..
then the rac man goes theres only 2 manufactueres of brake pads IN THE WORLD..ANd the rest are rebranded...And she was like YEP YEP 100% TRUE..
Mintex and Ferodo..
so i said what about apex...nope rebrand..What about brembo...ohh there another one..i goes soo theres 3 now..you both said there was only 2...
arguement went on
Basically REAAAAAALY UNHAPPY WITH kwikfit Would never ever ever ever ever go back there agian..i would seriously do the work on my car myself.
