    Heather R.: To whom it may concern if it does concern you at all

    I have dealt with Canadian Tire Namao branch in Edmonton Since it opened at least 10 years ago. One of the auto service guys there named Shane refused to warranty a tire I had bought a few years ago. I believed I complained then about his attitude. Yesterday January 5th,2013, I had my car towed into Canadian tire because it would not start and the power steering was not working prior to it not starting. I got a call back from Shane saying my power steering pump was shot and my battery was not holding a charge. I told him the battery should still be under warranty, he said, not unless I had a reciept, I then gave him permission to look in my car for receipt but he found an older one. I told him look in your system, as I know when I bought tires a little over a year ago they said ``we will not honor warranty without receipt`` but that was after I had bought battery. Eventually he found it in system and said he will pro rate battery but the estimate was 990.00. After battery pro rated I was quoted 940.00, I gasped and said why is it so expensive, he started breaking down prices for me..Pump 230, install 130, fluid exchange 100, etc. I said, well can i hold off on power steering pump, he said it wont pass an inspection, I said no worries my brother is a mechanic, but if it was a little cheaper I would get it done at Canadian tire for convenience. I was just reporting to work as I got his call with the 990 estimate. I drive transit bus for the city of Edmonton and I was just starting my shift, it was noon January 6th, 2013. a few minutes after I started driving, he called me back but I could not answer as I was driving the bus. A few minutes later I had like a 1 minute lay over and called him back, he said the new price was $940.00, I said, sorry I can not afford that, how much without the pump, he told me 500 something, I said, you know what...can you just change battery and do nothing else? He said "ok that will be 300 something" I said why so much? He again starting listing prices 160 diagnostic, 36 power steering pump ?? something..., then installation of the battery, blah blah. I said, several times I have to go, prior to this and I stated I was at work and had to go, he retorted "I am at work too!" I was trying to cut him short as I had a bus to drive, He said "don't you dare hang up on me, we have business to discuss". When he said it was 300 to get just my warranted battery reinstalled, I said "you know what, I am not paying for anything besides battery and if you want to charge me installation then go ahead but I am not paying for anything else"! He said, "I am not doing anything on your car, I will put it outside and you can tow it home"! I had to hang up and drive and let him do what he had to do as I was not going to lose my job over your idiot manager at Namao. I am thoroughly disgusted by his behavior as I used to love Canadian Tire as a kid, it offered great Christmas stuff, sleighs and skates etc. I was proud to be a Canadian and be a part of what Canadian Tire stood for. His behavior was worst than some back yard con job mechanic. About 10 minutes later, my phone rang again, I was wondering if he was giving me a time limit to get it out of parking lot, but no....he ....said because he started the paperwork on warranty work , he would change battery...well hallelujah....honoring your work finally. A lost customer....Heather R.

    ps I asked for a copy of initial estimate and received one for 931 with battery included....so it fell 60.00. My plan was to get it fixed elsewhere and to portray costs online from Canadian tire versus other garages. Low and behold, I left and my power steering pump is working....what a waste of a 990.00 dollars if I would have said ok UNBELIEVABLE

    More perspective from Heather, including the suggestion she contact CT:


    Heather R.: i did.....they said sorry i had experienced that....I found their response unacceptable....and wrote that back....but i feel that most people have it right....they will do nothing...as is my experience so far...I am totally embarrassed that they share our nations name at this point.....so many other stores would behave more promptly and with more concern and you never have to argue about warranty. Canadian Tire has let me and many others down.

    Heather R.: It took them 10 days. Then it was sorry about your experience. They suck

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

    CT asked, "What's the number one item on your winter driving checklist?"

    Leslie used the opportunity to tell us why, even if CT has a good warranty, it still doesn't help:



    Leslie M.B.K.: NOT having a Motomaster Top of the line Battery die after not even three years on a car and being told we still have to pay the Installation fees

    Leslie M.B.K.: Not to mention we purchased a so called Extended Warranty on it as well

    Leslie M.B.K.: Been a fan of Canadian Tire for well over 30 years, that is until yesterday. Motomaster Eliminator Battery dies on a car and needs to be replaced less than three years after it was purchased and this car does not have a lot of electrical gadgets in it and we even got an Extended Warranty yet still have to pay an Installation fee? For a 5 minute job?

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

    Hey, look everybody!

    Crappy Tire decided to post yet another photo of the Icy Truck!

    And this time, instead of just falsely claiming it's "made entirely of ice", they are falsely claiming that it's "battery ... powered", by a Crappola Tire battery, LOL!

    And this, from a company that's trying to "revive" their flagging automotive business! LMAO!


    Now, let's have a quick look at what some Canadians are saying about these batteries:


    DanandCindy P.: I have a 1080 eliminator & it don't Start nuthin...Boost steady dang good thing im a Mechanic.... -27 C Battery is done like dinner...Magic Number -27 C Battery all washed up...Its new...Junk..Call a 1-800 number ya forget that crap.....

    Bill D.: Yup, their batteries are garbage. Even a Wal Mart cheapy (Durastart I think?) is better and cheaper.

    Bill D.: Too bad most Motomaster batteries suck.

    Bill D.: Yup, their batteries are garbage. Even a Wal Mart cheapy (Durastart I think?) is better and cheaper.

    John W.: Always been sub standard products. Was why they was cheap..Prices gone waaaaay up & Quality. Has gone waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

    Down. Just not worth the Ca$H. :0|


    Plus this bonus comment:

    John E.H.: They need to pay more attention to their stores and not worry about trinkets like this

    Oh-oh!

    Looks like Crappy Tire dipped into the Spam Fund again!



    Leslie M.B.K.: I have never had a battery die so soon as the Motomaster Eliminator crap ones? Not Impressed ONE single bit and the Customer Service leaves a lot to be desired too


    Leslie M.B.K.: Does this battery last longer than the Motomaster Eliminator crap we just had to replace?

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

    Annette K.: Canadian tire would not even honor a warrenty from a battery that we bought last year,,, had to pay half the cost of a new one,, I am going to stop buying stuff from them because they never honor the warenty,, had all the receipts and still would not do nothing


    Annette K.: i did and there is nothing they wil do, so this is the last battery i buy from canadian tire,,,, Benson Auto parts are the best,, at least they put customers in a computor base,, when you dont have a receipt all you need is your name, phone number and they can tell you when you bought it,,, such a easy thing to do but Canadian Tire would never make things easy

    Leslie M.B.K.: Contacted Customer Service with a rather long letter. Hope something can be done, if not, will just keep sending messages. I do not give up easily
