    Splitter thread:


    Seb A.: Bought one in April 2014, I had to boost it 3 weeks ago and now it won't even charge. I will go to the store as soon as I can to get it replaced that's unacceptable !!! My car is a 2011 model and that should not happen to me. And to top that, they're advertising it as if it was a good battery..

    Adam B.: Now all they need is more than 5 teenage staff working at any given time. Trying to get someone to help you is like trying to pull teeth. And good luck trying to ask them questions about anything. Hire more people who know there department and less out of high school kids.

    Still lots of people who hate spam - maybe as much as they hate Ol' Crappy?

    Wanda S.Z.: It's amazing how I NEVER HIT like and it's saying I did. I call that false advertising!

    I guess we can't call this a permanent boycott, but it was on the battery thread (if inspired by the Crappy Cards):

    Jason Aking.: My girlfriend and I have had the exact same experience. We were not impressed and left the store immediately after dealing with the agents. Our business went else were.

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

    So, like I said, the avalanche-inspired comments on Ol' Crappy's facebook "our batteries don't suck" thread, fall into 3 groups:

    - complaints about crappy batteries.
    - complaints about the crappy stores in general.
    - complaints about the crappy and highly suspicious "tests".

    Here are some of the "yes their batteries do indeed suck" comments - sponsored by: your local Red Triangle of Crap!


    Bruno M.: It will start.... But how long would it last.....

    William J.H.: I herd the birds talking about a new line of batteries coming to Canadian tire. But I don't think that they will be any better. A battery is a battery wether you drop it or take care of it and use in its proper application the results will all be the same wink emoticon


    Aaron R.: Canadian tire has the worst batteries out there. They are a total safety hazard and it's been proven time and time again. If you don't want a battery that randomly explodes the stay away from the whole moto master line.

    Ben B.: Canadian tire is a joke when it comes to tires and mechanical. I would rather put my nuts in a vice then buy tires from them

    Denis C.: Its a moto master works the first Time then do you have a recette!!!

    Mark R.: just bought 2 Walmart energizers for my truck. 750 cca ea. best part 99 bucks ea. even better was the prorated discount from buying 2 of the same back in 2011 for 99 ea. total discounted price 35 ea. so if you think about it I've bought 4 batteries for 270 bucks. going to c.tire for the same would've cost nearly 800. that's crazy.

    Steven S.: my new battery from canadian tire dont start at -20 below. . nice one for sure

    BL P.: Costco's Kirkland batteries are the best deal out there. Period.

    James N.: CT's batteries are beyond junk. Everyone that wants to replace their own battery seems to think "I'll go the Canadian tire" but sadly they are making a big mistake. I run a small shop and I would have to say that 9/10 if we are replacing a battery in a car we are pulling out the original that's over 5yrs old or a 6m-1yr old CT that the customers claims it's not the problem "it's almost new" and sure enough it's the problem. In those positions, you'd be better of at Costco. ...or local napa

    Frank L.: So what is the big deal no warranty lol

    Rod P.: It sure didn't win when I tried to start my car yesterday in Toronto - complete fail. Maybe I should have pushed my car off a 27 foot building...

    Mike T.: Completely false advertising

    Robert J.M.: I got one , it went dead in two weeks never held a charge again bought a crap battery and it's still working in the same car no changes . Lost the receipt for battery purchase ,, told to pound sand for warranty !!

    Josh R.: Canadain tire batteries don't work on a good day, out of 3 batteries i have baught this year ive already returned 2. nice try thoe boys lol

    Andre G.: Bought one 2 days ago was dead right from the store

    Don M.: Many years ago, I bought a battery from Cdn Tire. Never again. Exchanged a battery 4 times trying to get one that held a charge. Finally got my money back and walked across the street to Woolco and bought one that worked for 7 years with no problems.

    Andrew C.: the tech wasn't willing to exchange mines so i went to Costco to get One next One I'll get an optima

    Stuart B.: Impressive commercial but I will never buy another battery from Canadian tire after numerous purchases (my own or in cars I bought). They all failed after short life. If it's an Excide product, it's likely crap!

    Gerry N.: As a mechanic that's installed hundreds of batteries over the years on a multitude of vechicles and heavy equipment I must confess, canadian tire batteries are complete trash.. They're only saving grace is that they'll exchange the crap battery for another new crap battery if you have proof of purchase.. I firmly believe these batteries are at the lowest level of quality that can be purchased for personal use.. Buyers beware of any motor master battery let alone the other cheaply made motor mater brand... I'd rate them at a princess auto level of quality

    Paul H.K.: The only battery I've ever had problem with was on from ct! Had to exchange it 3 times before I got one that worked! They are worth their weight in scrap!!

    Craig S.: I got one and it was dead brought it back the next day. They gave me a new one ... put it in my truck and would not start ... whent to gmc they put one in my truck and it started no problem . Took the battery back to crapy tire and and to call a manager then customer relations just to get my money back.... this shows why the dealer is better ... trying to save a buck costs more

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

    And here, in response to the Battery Spam, are some of the "those Crappy Stores Suck in General" comments - sponsored by: your local Red Triangle of Crap!


    Rob W.: Wtf is the point of this? You're still crooks

    Yvonne T.: Canadian tire sucks in Canmore, they wouldn't sell a tire to Tasha and Codi. So they had to drive on a donut to Calgary
    They didn't want to be liable for a tire. WTF.

    Joe D.: I have SEEN their batteries self ignite. I have ALSO had some of their tires SHRED when I had JUST bought them new. Tools? Pretty tough. BUT I can break them easily.

    Rob H.: All Canadian tire parts are second rate.

    Michel L.: canadian tire is for people who love dollar store items.

    Jon S.: All they did was parallel a probably blown open battery with the original battery in the truck. You can see the jumper cables. It proves nothing other than how electricity works. Congrats Canadian tire. The same company that would try and convince an elderly man that his car was damaged before THEY drove it off the vehicle lift themselves.

    Dave M.: After breaking 357 batteries one of them worked

    Grant B.: Why isn't there a dislike button on facebook posts?

    Craig S.: Here's a good test go to a dollar store then go to Crapy tire.. only thing I see is price all the same stuff

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

    Well, there were a LOT of comments on these stupid 'tests', but some people really got into it. Some noticed how there were many batteries used, but the edited it together to make it look like just one battery. There also may be multiple trucks, with batteries moving mysteriously from side to side, between shots. And, in most cases, there seems to be a battery still installed in the truck, LOL!

    And there was one fanatical ex-crappy-wannabe, who was a true evangelist for these crappy batteries - he seemed ready to fight with anyone who dared challenge the awesome supremacy of Crappy Tire Killer Batteries! GGGRRRRR!!!!

    Anyway, here are the ones I managed to grab:
