ATS - Exhaustingly Good

AdvantagesFast Service, Courteous Service

DisadvantagesGarages will differ around the UK

"...and products received from the ATS Garage in Newbury, Berkshire.** *Personal Background* Earlier on this week I noticed my exhaust was producing a rather unique sounding boy racer noise, complete with a slight rattling of my exhaust box, so decided immediate action was required as I was due in Cardiff the following day. I decided to take my Citroen Saxo (51 reg.) to the local Kick Fit dealers as they had always provided a reputable service ..." Read review

Not to be relied upon

AdvantagesQuick

DisadvantagesEverything else about them

"ATS Euromaster are your typical Tyres, Brakes and Exhausts chains, running up and down the country. They are situated in most big towns and seem to be running alongside quick fit in popularity, however good or bad that is. I have only visited ATS once, and probably will never do again, unless I’m in desperate need of a Tyre quickly, but I won’t bother taking their advice on my car! You see, ATS tried to con me out of some of my money, ..." Read review

Kwik Fit - You can get better

AdvantagesLarge Stock, professional compared with competition, good range of services

DisadvantagesEXPENSIVE!!! may push you

"I guess everyone that owns a car knows the facts, and this opinion may not contain any startling revelations about Kwik Fit, but having recently had my tyres replaced by Kwik Fit and a local tyre company, I shall try to explain the pros and cons of each. I share with my mother a Fiat Cinquecento Sporting, as you may or may not know, there is only one primary manufacturer of this car’s tyre, (I’ll explain later). Anyway, the car was ..." Read review

Exhausted I sure am now

Advantagesnil

Disadvantagesnot honest

"ATS well advertised,yes, a large company, yes, good reputation, reliable and honest? Answer NO. Well that is my humble opinion. I recently owned a small citroen AX motor car and the exhaust started to corrode, blow me I thought, the exhaust was only fitted by ATS in High Wycombe less than four months ago! So, off I went with receipt back to ATS where, on the ramp I noticed that the exhaust had completely cracked in half under the manifold area. Unusual ..." Read review

Ebley tyres and exhaust

Advantagescheap and great service

Disadvantagesnone

"..."just over £100" and at ATS they said it will be £110 plus £15 if the manifold bolts and springs are hard to get off - now you can buy these in places like Halfords for £6.00. Then we telephoned the cheapest which was Ebley. They said £75.00. On arrival there we found that they had to send for it from their other branch and this would take an hour. But, if we wanted to have a look around the town they would drive us there and pick us up. Now ..." Read review

Cheap and uncheerful

AdvantagesCheap

DisadvantagesNot to be trusted, left my car dirty

"...had my car in at ATS in Altrincham for a shock absorber, being the only place that could it, as the other usual chain garages refused to quote for it for some reason (BMW Z3 2.8) . Initial thoughts were that the place looked generally derelict, I turned up early and spoke to an uncheery person to be told that the garage opened up at 8.30am not 8.00am. Anyway they did the work and on payment I asked the man I if they had taken it for a test drive ..." Read review

ATS - free checks

AdvantagesFree checks, didn't rip me off when they could have done!

DisadvantagesNo appointments

"I haven't ever had to have anything major done by ATS, and from reading some of the other opinions perhaps I would think differently if I had. However, in my dealings with them I have been very impressed. They do free vehicle checks, and if they don't find anything wrong, you don't pay anything. I recently had my wheel alignment, suspension geometry and tyres checked, and they found nothing wrong, so I didn't have to pay anything at all, despite ..." Read review

Ebleys number one

Advantagesdont charge extra after a quote

Disadvantagesnone

"Although a lot of places say the prices of their stock cannot be beaten and you cant find cheaper, you can at Ebley tyres. Their cheapest new tyres are cheaper than a lot of their competitors remoulds. With Ebley they do the job you ask them to without saying that you need this that and the other done as well. If they do notice something you get a very polite "you know blah blah will need doing soom". I find when I want that done I will ..." Read review

Quick review of ATS Tyres and Exhausts

"i went to ATS ashbourne, and arived at about 8am one morning. the depot was shut and the sign on the wall said opening times (8.30), i needed a punture (nothing compaired to the above customer) at 8.05 the shutters were opened and a middle aged chap came out with a large display. as soon as he saw me he asked if he could help, i explained i had a puncture and he invited me stright in to the depot. i would say within 15 mins and before the 8.30am opening time i was on my way to work, this chap opened up got me in and booked me out before anyone else turned up, he was cheerful, helpfull and extremly quick i will be going back when i need to.

Quick review of ATS Tyres and Exhausts

"I went to the Northampton branch of ATS and had quick, professional, helpful and friendly service. Thank you Jason and James. Before going there I'd had to ring 4 other ATS depots in the area to find the tyres I needed (a funny size and spec so not ATS's fault) and every time the person who answered was polite, helpful and friendly. I'd looked at this site beforehand and was expecting the worst so well done ATS. PS. A note for Ciao - whatever company you deal with the service you get will depend on the individuals you deal with. One bad depot doesn't necessarily reflect badly on all of them - so make sure reviewers say where they went and help customers and the company.

Quick review of ATS Tyres and Exhausts

"using the very poor rating for this garage is an understatement. i took my Clio 2 weeks ago for an MOT and Service, when this was completed as i was driving off there was a funny noise coming from inside the car so i took it back and it appeared that they had dropped a tool in the car and just left it, during that next week my car had been leaking oil which it hadnt done before so i took it back and they said they had put the wrong washer on, this wasted my time and petrol to getting there now it appears the car is still leaking so i will have to go back again :( incompetent springs to mind

ATS - Perfectly Adequate (Rochdale Branch)

AdvantagesFast service, friendly staff, good prices

DisadvantagesNone that I came accross

"I've always been worried about choosing a chain branch to send my car to as I've often read bad things. However, I think these places get a bad rap as most people tend to write reviews when they have recieved a bad service as opposed to a good one. I noticed that I really needed some new front tyres on my car, so I immediately called and they were able to book me in the following day. I had a set of Dunlop SP Sports fitted. ..." Read review

Kwik Fit

Advantagesproffesional, courteous service

Disadvantagesno booking system

"I use my local kwik fit in staffordshire on a regular basis, having a small fleet of vehicles. The guys there are not only polite, but very knowledgeable. Always managing to match my needs. Never have i left there feeling ripped off. Anything that needs replacing is always explained thoughly to me. Several times old parts have been offered to me to take away for a second opinion. Alot of people harp on about "second hand" or "part worn" tyres, just ..." Read review
