    The one thing that alot of people need to remember, that if you take your car or truck to a canadian tire and have it fixed and then a problem occurs after having it fixed, and then bring it to another shop and say " look i took it to my local canadian tire and they said they fixed it and now this problem is occuring ", do you actually think that that shop will say " well it's not there fault it looks like it was going anyway" no they will say " yep your right they should have caught this and done this ". They say that and do that to steal business, and they would do it to any shop not just Canadian tire. So think of that the next time you have your car fixed at a Canadian tire and something goes wrong after, try this bring it some where else and don't tell them where you just had it fixed and see what they say then. Because I will tell you this every shop can tell you something diffrerent that could be wrong, depends on the tech.

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

    I just got back from a tire purchase at Canadian Tire and let me tell you, it was something special. 2 hours, 30 mins. I had to tell the guy to balance two of my tires because he put the stick on weight on without cleaning the mag, and there was a lot of dirt. I understand that he must have been right out of school but what if I was not watching. He also attempted to lift the front of my car by the suspension linkage, which is aluminium. That might have been expensive.

    All in all I left there wondering how much I really saved (verses time and potential damage)
    I won't go back to the automotive side.

    Yes I understand that there are some very good Canadian tire mechanics that care for your car and have knowledge, but I seem to always arrive when they are on break.

    Yeah, but keep going right back there and reward the store with more of your money.

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

    I agree, I am a control tech. I have a lot of training and work with a lot of chemicals, alloys, and special equipment. Swiss minerals company I work for relies on me to make the right call on how to deal with technical problems every day because of my training.

    Bleeder installed too tight or caliper not heated can snap. The fact is that if guys don't know enough to be able to work on their own vehicles, they don't know enough to be able to criticize anyone else they pay to do it. You can't do the job, you can't assess the guy who is doing it. You'll get the same situations at dealerships and private garages. Cars break, and are expensive to fix. Don't like it, take the bus. Technicians are not really able to fully master the systems they work with, they need to study much more as cars have become so much more complex. Every sensor applies a different principle of physics. How can you expect someone to come up with the correct hypothesis about the solution to an uncharted problem, when they haven't fully studied the electronics and physics behind the measurement? They do their best, we have to deal with it or do our own study when a problem arises. I fix my cars/truck. Go in when I need a mechanical or maybe if I needed a tranny changed.

    Fix your own car, then you can criticize others doing their best. Why don't you criticize politicians? They are the ones who are really screwing us out of money.

    How can we criticize politicians? Based on your edict, if we're not politicians ourselves, we have no right to criticize people who are.

    They won't even get my dirty oil. They get zilch from me.
    I'd rather go to a dermatologist for a dental problem than patronize Canadian Tire, period.
