Kmart Auto Alice Springs was a bit of a mixed bag for me. The good bit was that they fitted my 2010 out of warranty Subaru Forester in for a service on 3-4 days notice when I was travelling through town. The not so good bit is that they quoted me $155 for a minor service (oil change with good quality oil and filter) and then without consultation with me, performed a logbook service (oil change and filter) for $218. As far as I can tell, the same thing but more expensive. Oh, they did stamp the log book as they promise, but they stamped it in the wrong place. They should have phoned me to discuss what they intended to do beforehand, but they didnt.
Not happy with my stop here. Left the car with them for half a day, got billed for them not finding what the trouble was. Clearly did not listen to what we had told them about the symptoms as an independent garage up the road found the issue in 15 minutes. The kmart tyre team seemed more interested in getting my car serviced than anything else.
They wanted to charge us 200$ +, just for an oil change. And the next possible date would have been in 1 week... Better go to bridgestone (next to the mc Donalds). 100$ there and they said its possible tomorrow :)
Ive had numerous car services carried out at Kmart T&A Service Alice Springs and have never had reason to complain. The team is client focused, efficient, and provides good value for money.
