Paid £150 (though I was originally quoted approx. £100) to inspect and diagnose my car after the engine failed to start, with a suspected worn cambelt. They later said all the valves had gone and it needed a new camshaft, quoted at £1600. Fair enough. I arranged for it to be scrapped and was quoted £192 by a third party after explaining the cost of repairs. When me and the scrap man opened the bonnet we were stunned to find the engine exposed with no head gasket! Chalky Whites didn’t bother to put the engine back together, even though I gave the car in with a full engine! Despite notifying Chalkies before getting the car scrapped at no point did they bother to explain they couldn’t be bothered to put the engine back together - they still have the missing parts. As a result the scrap man refused to give me anything for it and I got none of the £192 I was quoted by him but still expected to pay Chalky Whites £150 for a job half done. Add to this, a week before I spent £400+ to have sticking brakes fixed. I told them I believed it was the front brakes but they replaced the rear disc pads and callipers which Mark said were sticking (not the front brakes as I believed) and Mark also said it needed at least 1 ABS sensor (which they removed from one of the rear brakes). Speaking with one of the mechanics, I then found out he “didn’t even get around to checking the front brakes” even though I said I believed they were an issue as the steering had been pulling when braking. So despite an improvement in handling after the rear brakes were fitted there were still persistent problems with the brakes, and additional issues with the ABS and ESP, which I blamed on the sensor they’d removed. £400+ to not even fully diagnose if all brakes were an issue. Then £150 to inspect an engine which they left in bits so I lost my £192 scrapping quote. Seems like they enjoyed milking me despite knowing I use my car for work.
Won't take my R8 anywhere else in Milton Keynes. Friendly team and always provide a great service.
Absolutely brilliant! Friendly, very thorough and honest! I had 4 new tyres fitted and MOT, I couldn't of asked for better service! Took longer than expected but that was because they looked over my entire car rather than an in and out job! My car is due a full service soon and there's only one place I will take it! Chalky Whites are brilliant!
Trustworthy business, no rip off's.
Absolute disaster, my wheel fell off 1 week after Chalky Whites replaces my disks & pads!! Thankfully my family are still alive.... Mark Singleton Owner...Oh somebody must have tampered with your wheel nuts!!! I’ll let you make your own mind up
