    Lets take a look at your brake fluid problem. This other tech that broke your bleeder screw out of the caliper obviously didn't use heat when he tried to open it up so yes, it broke. Could it be possible that he tried to hide his mistake by blaming Canadian Tire? You drove a pile, a neon that you probably didn't maintain. I've never broken a bleeder screw. This other guy didn't know what he was doing and pulled the wool over your eyes. You yourself mentioned that the brake fluid was " of acceptable quality" so I ask again, how do you know this? What was the moister reading?
    Canadian Tire has a bad image because people don't like spending money for their vehicles. They get all kinds of garbage like neons and cheap complainers that want things done for next to nothing. It would be interesting having some of you idiots try and do the job for a living. Try getting a red-seal trade and working flat rate for a living. All of you on here couldn't hack it. I've said what I do for a living, what do all of you do?
    All of you go to one of the cheapest places to get your vehicles serviced, if you don't like it go somewhere else.
    First off, the neon is in near mint condition, always serviced meticulously, the bleeder was on the wheel cylinder, not the caliper, and if CT had opened the bleeder to do the flush I payed for, then it would not have been seized, and broke a few days later??? are you sure you know what you are doing with cars??? maybe you would be a prime candidate for employment with crappy tire! the other guy you are blaming for all of these mishaps is the same guy that has serviced my vehicles for many years, without problems, and he DOES know what he is doing, my problems started when I went to CT

    He knows what he's doing does he? He knows how to break things by the sound of it. You don't have an understanding about things of this nature, that's why you pay someone to fix your vehicle. A bleeder screw can still seize up even if it has been opened up recently. Oxidation on the metal treads will cause it to seized up. That is why heat from an acetylene torch is required to expand the metal and free it up. I just did wheel cylinders on a 1982 Ford van today and guess what, I didn't brake the bleeder screws on a 27 year old vehicle. This other guy sounds like he takes impeccable care of your car... so much so that you took it to another shop. I'll ask you a third time because third times a charm as they say. If the brake fluid was of acceptable quality, what was the moister reading of the brake fluid? It sounds like it was done if the fluid was fine. There is no reason why this guy had to break your bleeder screw. He's shifting the blame and you don't have the intellectual capacity to realize it. Neons are shit, which explains why someone like yourself drives one. A cheap car to go with a cheap person. You're a fucking loser who has to pay to get your car serviced. Shut your mouth and when you have gone through an apprenticeship and have a red seal trade under your belt then you can complain about things.

    Re: Auto Center - Ill never go to any Canadian tire again

    who's the loser? your defending crappy tire and you claim you dont work there. Fine I dont have a red seal in automotive, oh woe is me, but my $120,000 salary helps me sleep better. The neon is my daughters car, the moister reading? who cares, on a test strip that I was shown it said 50% is that your reading you so want to know? so if it was done PROPERLY would it not be better than that? or is that acceptable workmanship in your warped mind. Hope I am never in emergency again where I would walk into your place of employment, sounds like your a rip off artist also. Good luck with your precious red seal, hopefully you dont lose it for vehicle malpractice, I think I know as much about cars as you, and you do this for a living? its not too late for retraining, or a different career path, dont despair.

    You dont seem to have the intellectual capacity to realize that you are defending a company that "you dont work for" on a website designed for people to voice their negative experiences.

    "Sounds like your a rip off artist" You mean you're a rip off artist... someone pays you $120,000 salary? lol you can't even spell! Guess what fag, I really do make over $100,000 I sleep great as well because I've been doing it for a long time and have many people that ask for me by name. My salary comes from a flat rate pay system. I have to work for it and I wouldn’t have lasted over 20 years if I were screwing people over. You don't know anything about cars and I've proven it a few times now. I have children as well and I would never let them drive something like a neon. I value my children’s safety too much and I'm not cheap like yourself. What line of work are you in that pays you that figure or are you making it up like this story that you have concocted? I'm defending Canadian Tire because I know some really good techs that work for there.

    Can't wait for your next reply, if there is one.. "YOU'RE" a waist of air...

    By the way it is "WASTE of air" not "waist of air" and is 50% acceptable to you, I see you avaoided that part but just went straight for the personal attacks, typical 12 year old mentality, I meen you have the all mighty red seal, is 50% acceptable, avoid it all you want, we all know that it isn't

    This self-proclaimed mechanic is just the type of jackass who was made for Canadian Tire. He's great at throwing insults and making big assumptions when he wasn't even witness to what occurred. Here's an idea, Mr. Mechanic. Take a length of hose, attach it to you next customer's exhaust pipe while the engine is running, wrap your lips around the end and inhale deeply for a good while.

    What is going on here?

    I don't understand why two seemingly middle-aged men are calling each other down like this! You are both grown up enough to know better and the only reason you are acting like this is because you are anonymous...
    Back to the real issue... I just got my car inspected at Candian Tire. They called me back and explained exactly what was wrong with the car and a break down of the prices for each issue ($1295 total). Needess to say, I was not impressed with the amount, but my car is old and was not taken care of by previous owners. A quick call to my mom (who is a mechanic) and explaination and she concluded that it was a good deal. She can't look at the car so she doesn't know if the repairs are required but they are safety issues so better to be safe than sorry.
    They took their sweet a$$ time with the repairs but the end result was great. The car is in great shape now and no additional problems so far.
    I know that CT has a lot of complaints and I have a few myself but judging by the increadibly high volume of vehicles the go through there are of course going to be way more complaints than an independant shop. Most of the employees that I have seen couldn't care less about customer service but there are qualified mechanics working there and i'm sure they care about their jobs enough to not screw up someone's vehicle on purpose. Mechanics are like doctors and vets, they have to diagnose a problem and fix what they think is appropriate. It is not an exact science and people are bound to make mistakes. Why do you think that apprentices spend most of their school years working in a shop and not in classes?
    I'm sure CT has very bad locations and bad service and bad management but every corporation is like that! I support this thread as a way to voice your opinions but with my recent encounter at the Sherwood Park location has been positive so I'm not going to complain.

    Then go to another website where you can praise Canadian Tire.
