    Canadian Tire Sucks at Tire - Sales, Installation, Service, Warranties, etc.

    It's ironic that a familiar store with the word 'tire' right in its name would do so poorly at stocking, selling, installing, servicing and providing warranties for its name-sake product. Yet their gradual decline in the automotive field is well-known, despite their recent attempts to reverse...

    Well, the staff at the Angrignon store (Canadian Tire Lasalle #230, 2221 boul.Angrignon, Lasalle QC) was rude and extremely unfriendly as always. I went with a couple of items and two coupons to the cash and, once I paid for the first item, I gently asked the cashier to pass the second one. Note...

    Officially the TWO worst Canadian Companies.

    Officially the TWO worst Canadian Companies: Canadian Tire and Air Canada. These two constantly appear on Marketplace and other such programs delving into consumer complaints and they usually prefer to "no comment" when pressed for an interview to correct problems.

    I came to their service department to get my federal RIV inspection done. I normally try to avoid CT but there are not many choices in Calgary for getting the RIV inspection. There is only one nonCT shop in the city that does it. I thought that since I was there I might as well have them do...

    Sure I work for Canadian Tire, but even *I* don't agree with some things

    Hello, I will admit there is a problem with customers taking advantage of Canadian Tire. Returning products that are used claiming not to be used. Or claiming defective when not defective. Or dropping a vacuum down the stairs and claiming it defective. But while this does happen, there are also...

    Motomaster tires

    Motomaster tires sold and fixed by canadian tire are the worst tires on earth. They are worse than useless. Motomaster tires will be worn out in just 1 year by running just 5000 kms only. I strongly advise that nobody on this earth should buy these f----in tires from this f-----in canadain tire.
