Nationwide Autocentres

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesDangerously incompetant

"...business to Nationwide. Now called Nationwide Autocentres they have similar branding to LEX and Lucas and offer the same services often at the same premises. I happened to buy a brand new MGTF at about the time Nationwide Autocentres came into being and so I've been getting my car serviced by MG Rover and haven't needed to visit Nationwide for about 4 years. But MG have gone bust now so …. Where do you go? Who do you trust to do the job well ..." Read review

Think twice

AdvantagesNothing

DisadvantagesPoor Quality, Very Expensive

"...just summarising my experience with Nationwide Autocenter. I bought a six year old laguna from a local garage in Leicester. I also took Auto Protect which covers me for the first one year against any mechanical/ electrical faults. It has been a smooth ride for 10 months after which I found the Brake Fluid leaking. I asked a local mechanic who quoted £225 as he needs to change the Master Cylinder and some other items which i cant remember now. Also ..." Read review

Cry Wolf?(updated one year on)

AdvantagesGood website, prompt meet and greet

Disadvantagestry to flog you extras on impulse, which you may or may not need

"...my Toyota Yaris into the Nationwide Autocentre, in Bridgend, for a full service (40,000 miles) and an MOT, for which I was quoted £188 inc VAT including a discount for having a Tesco clubcard. I booked online and waited for them to contact me nearer the time to confirm, however come Wednesday afternoon (service booked for Friday) hadn't had a call so I phoned myself, they'd never heard of me, and mumbled something about Easter causing a problem because ..."

One to Avoid

AdvantagesThe branch I used was close to home. You get Tesco clubcard points

DisadvantagesEverything else

"...whose recommended service agents were Nationwide Autocentres - great, I thought, there's one of them within two miles of home - so I got on the 'phone and booked an appointment for a 'better than manufacturer's spec' full service. Have a look at the website - it looks pretty impressive. They are also approved by the AA. The full service option I chose indicates they carry out a check/adjustment regime on 70 items, categorising each using a traffic ..." Read review

I had good(ish) experience with Nationwide

AdvantagesThey went out of the way to help you

DisadvantagesNot the cheapest

"...I do NOT work for Nationwide and this review is only for the branch at Trafford, Manchester. As I only moved to Manchester recently, I do not know where to bring my car in for a major job. I do most of the servicing and minor jobs myself, so I do know quite a bit about cars. It will be hard for Nationwide, or anyone else for that matter, to try and rip me off. My first experience with Nationwide is for my MOT. Brought it in and it failed on ..." Read review
