Kyle T.: Re:Hi Kyle, could you please contact customerservice@canadiantire.com with your contact info about this? We will be in touch.
Seeing this was a few years ago , I see no point getting in touch with customer service. They did nothing at the time when I had to take my van back. Pointed out where it said below " van has intermittent ignition faults and needs to be brought back for further diagnostics " and complained. I was upset over this because my can did NOT! Need a $900 tune up . It was there for a intermitted ignition fault to begin with. That doesn't make any sense at all , doing a tune up then telling me it needs to come in (for work I took it there for in the beginning) the work order said " intermitted ignition problem" That right there shows you a complete rip off! All documented in writing on the work order and sent out the door saying being back for the problem you brought it here for with a $900 bill

Leroy C.: Don't do it save yourself from the biggest scammers north of the border. They scammed myself a month ago where as I'm still in the process of seeking satisfaction as well as compensation for 4000 dollars they charged me a month ago. They are not content with a small ripoff. Through dishonesty and flat out lies with no or very little remorse and though there all the same this was Canadian tire meadowvale. And thank you for reading. Better yet trust me and be careful

Wayne C.: I don't usually comment on these postings but this time I have to. I too learned the hard way that Canadian Tire is not the place to take your vehicle for repairs but the problem is caused by their corporate greed. They don't pay their workers enough to live on. Take the time to talk to some of them and you will be surprised the menagerie wages such a large corporation pays out. Their mechanics are on a commission on the parts they sell which is added to a merger basic wage. They rip off their customers to survive and put bread on their tables. That system can never be any better. It's not the mechanics' fault, it's the owners. Nice too see CT getting all this flack. Bet they won't be rushing out another ad on Facebook.

Paul M.: Worst mechanics in Vancouver , used to trust them but they were constantly miss diagnosing simple issues that a good mechanic would have found . There are better cheaper garages/mechanics available

Carl S.: Yes. A free tow to Cdn Tire. From there, you can use CAA to tow you to a reputable repair facility.

Julie W.: Yeah right. This from the same company who refused to get one of their mechanics to stay late and switch out my tires when I was stuck in London during a snowstorm an hour away from home. Even though I would have spent a fortune on tires and rims in their store.

Jeremy P.: Canadian Tire in Winnipeg
I took in my rx7 to simply get new tires put on. I had suggested they change my oil.
They managed to tell me they had the right tires on their system but apparently they weren't at the location.
So I waited for them to be delivered.
They managed to get the tires on and change the oil "applause".
However, when I asked what was taking so long I went to viewing window to witness them lower my car onto the drainage pan, then proceed to drive it about 15 feet dragging this oil pan.
What happened was the oil pan ripped off and apart several pieces of the underbody.
I went into the service bay and pleaded my case only to get kicked out.
When I brought up making an MPI claim they suggested it would be a bad idea as they had "noticed" a few unsafe things with my car, and I probably shouldn't go thru insurance.
The car was safetied merely a few months before by a Mazda dealership.
Either way, the only thing you should go to CT for is to test your sucker level...

Nicole L.C.: Hey Canadian Tire, it looks like its time to either revamp or eliminate your car "service" department. I too had a ridiculously poor experience at your kamloops store. I used to shop there ALOT, however after my experience with the auto dept, I will NEVER shop there again. Seems to be a FAR too common theme with these comments. It would be sad to see a Canadian company go belly_up when it was preventable.
