    Re: Buying Batteries From Canadian Tire - Warranty Issues, Etc.

    This morning it was -19, and -28 with the wind-chill.

    I wonder how many people are out shopping for automotive batteries? Maybe not so many for motor-bike batteries, but the warning is still timely:


    John K.: They sold me the wrong battery for my motorbike and refused to refund my money. Their HO backed the local store. I will never deal with them again.

    John K.: I had a very similar experience. Kicked out of a store for asking for a refund on a battery they sold me that didn't work. I called their HO thinking logic will prevail. they backed the store manager. I will never deal with them again and will be happy to share my experiences with others.

    Somebody else noticed the HST rip-off. Other retailers don't try to pull this:

    Norm H.: Really disappointed with attitude and way of doing business at CT in Orleans. Paid 160 for a new battery plus 15 for enviromental fees, to be paid back when battery returned. when they charge the enviro fee they add HST. When you return the ald battery they don't give you the HST back. They try to say the government gets it but the only thing that the government receives the HST on is the sale of the new battery. CT is pocketing the HST on the enviro fees. Thats just plain theft in my books.

    Kendall B.: Last time ever shopping at a Canadian.Don't believe their battery commercials 5 year warranty what a joke.you would think their would honor the warranty on battery they only sell but they won't. make sure you pay with a credit card because if you lose your bill in the 5 years your S.O.L

    I guess that dumb ice-covered truck is supposed to make us by Crappy Batteries from Crappy Tire:

    Clint P.: It's nothing new and designed to make people think Canadian tire has the best batteries for the North. It's been known for some years now manufacturers of automobiles were going to make the switch to AGM batteries,(absorbed glass mat). The hold back was in the charging process delivered from the alternator. Any properly maintained and charged battery will start an engine in 40 below. Heat is what kills batteries, not the cold(a common misconception)..Starting ability isn't soley determined by the battery either, it's dependent upon other factors as well, one being, was the block heater plugged in. Believe what you choose, but I will not buy a knock battery product from Canadian tire, I will go to an independent distributor like Battery Direct.

    Kliff W.: How about spending the money it took to make that POS truck on kids that need gear to play hockey or other sports. 1 truck vs. a few hundreds kids gear.. get your priorities straight!

    Danny T.: You know, having a battery in an ice truck will void that battery warranty! I was told the same on my 1 year old eliminator battery today. Even though it has 3 year replacement warranty I was completely ignored, told that my battery has frozen and is voided. Go figure batteries freeze in cold? If I had a shady warranty like that on the products I sell in my business, I would be OUT of business!

    Ice Truck Battery:


    Stephen D.H.: Cool ride misleading commercial, a fully charged battery will not freeze, a discharged battery will. Discharge the battery, freeze it and then try to get warranty, they will not warranty a frozen battery
