Last weekend saw CT's flyer, some OE Plus brake pads on sale, 20% off, thought it was not bad. Went to the store nearby during the weekend, want to stock up a whole set of front / rear brake pads for my car. They told me there's no stock of the rear brake pads, but can order for me, and will...
I went to Canadian Tire in December to have my Power Steering Frame replaced because it was leaking power steering fluid. They replaced it and it ended costing me around 1300 bucks.
After it being replaced I noticed it was still leaking, so I took it back (within 100 days). They said that it...
Ok, time to split there recurring complaints into a new thread:
Matthew P.: Bought a starter for my car from the Winnipeg polo park store (Hade to tap mine to get it going) after returning home and removing the old one I went to put the new one in to my surprise it didn't fit now I had to...
I have worked at a CT for 5 years now in western Canada, and I have seen the good service and the crappy. I musy say, the store I work at is quite good at honoring and correcting customer complaints regarding price discrepancies, flyer stock being in stock, rainchecks honored months after...
This is yet another area in which Canadian Tire excels ... at sucking, that is.
I was inspired by this post on the Mapleview thread:
I just got back from having an oil change done at the Mapleview Dr. Canadian Tire location. After waiting over an hour to have the change done in an EMPTY garage and signing what I assumed would be the price I would pay, I was shown the bill that was around $15 more than the price agreed upon...
This has been on my mind for a while, and with spring hopefully making an appearance in a few months, we can all help get the word out early!
This was posted on Canadian Tire's own Facebook page, on this warm-for-mid-January night (only -5!):
Jim Hiebert: Watch out for Canadian Tire! I bought...
I'm thrill to come across this communities for Canadian tire victims.
I'm a 3rd year apprentice in the automotive service trade and Canadian tire was my first shop. Nobody else would hire me with no experience at the time. as soon as I got my first year training I got the hell out of there. The...
There certainly are a lot of complaints about automotive repairs at Crappy Tire stores.
This thread can be a place to collect the many stores of unnecessary repairs and over-charging. As well there are stories of incompetence, and also incorrect and incomplete repairs.
For stories about tire...
Just want to share my email sent to head office:
Today I was shopping at your Kingsway and Gladstone store in Vancouver and received the worst case of customer service to date. I was looking at a palate of clearance exercise benches all of which were open boxes. As any customer would do I...
So....I take my father's car into Canadian Tire to have two front struts replaced, an upper shock mount bolt drilled out and replaced, and a wheel alignment. I haven't lived in Canada for 15 years, and it did not occur to me that a garage like Canadian Tire would mislead me.
The repair to...
I'd like to start a thread, just on this topic.
Here's the first installment, from last night at https://www.canadiantiresucks.net/personal-stories/32-return-policy-17.html#post7209:
Sometimes I like to go to the Crappy Tire facebook page, to read all the complaints. Hiliarious...
I work at Canadian Tire, and I love this site... Something wrong there?
-The Managers are mostly all dicks
-The wages suck $10.15/hour
-You NEVER get a raise unless minimum wage goes up
-NOTHING is every where it is supposed to be
-The warehouses are not organized well at all, up to 45min to...
I bought drill bit set 22 years ago 1989, and still have the receipt which I was told at the time was my warranty for these "lifetime" bits. Since then I think I returned bits for warranty twice, with 1st time no issues, 2nd time minor issues, but this evening I was told No way were these...
I purchased an assortment of nuts and bolts in a plastic hard case. I had expected they would fit each other but they didn't. Not on nut in the box would fit any of the bolts. NOT ONE...
I returned them to the store explaining the problem. They told me "nowhere on the package does it say they...
CTC used to say it's warranty on tools is "forever" but forever now has a time limit or at least it requires a receipt. No more replacements without a receipt. Now who keep receipts for their tools for years??? Are they mental?
You'd think the fact you present them a broken part would be...
I'm old, retired and I have all kinds of CTC stories from years of fixing things and driving cars and trying to deal with CTC.
I don't deal there at all anymore. They have lost me as a customer, but they don't care. I have written to head office about things and they simply don't reply...
Well Mark, we are a team ( a concept you never understood) - we all work together and my "mommy" should you decide to fight her, would make you go pale - just try to fuck with her, you have no idea what, or who, you are dealing with. I know this is a difficult concept for your pea brain to...
"Sorry,No Class Tire" would be a better name,.I have to make a trip up north in to BC . My tires are in not bad shape but to be safe a new set of four would be better.I went to "Canadian Tire" here in Airdrie and approached the young clerk at the parts counter. I asked him if they have tires...
25 Disinformation Rules!!!
1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don't discuss it -- especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it's not reported, it didn't happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.
2. Become incredulous and...
