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

    CT/Me/Owner/Lawguy is another pathetic example of what Crappy Owners have descended to, these days.

    They keep saying they won't post here any more, but you just can't believe anything they write.

    And now they have resumed mis-quoting consumers, and then complaining about things the consumers never said! How sad!

    And, gush! After making all these misleading claims about having "the best warranty", they finally admitted that it doesn't apply to all batteries they sell!

    Thanks for being honest for a change!

    But really: what's the big deal? Others have already done their homework for them.

    Are they providing the evidence they said they have, to prove that no other retailers in Canada have a "better warranty" (whatever that means)? Nope.

    How about helping consumer get satisfaction on their warranties? Nope, no help there, either.

    But at least customers are here to help each other, and give each other warnings.

    Yup, we are just ordinary people, trying to help one another out.

    Something the Angry/CT/Me/Law/Guy clearly doesn't like. Ha-ha!

    So, keep up the good work, fellow consumers!

    You're not even discussing batteries anymore, because you don't know them! You don't know the warranty process, the ONE document required to have a warranty honoured, or what any of this information looks like or conatins. So you've resorted to generics about your view of me being pathetic, despite the fact you don't know which store is mine, how it looks, how it performs etc.... again speaking with zero information.

    Legitimate customer complaints ceased on this site 3 months ago, now it's just two yahoo's H8R & Challenger.

    How about you go back to something atleast you had a tiny amount of knowledge about like the CPA or SGA even though you got most of that incorrect also. Atleast you bothered to read a it about that stuff, instead of talking through your hat like you've been doing in regards to this battery warranty topic.

    You know, I sit here looking at increasing sales week after week. i look at great quarterly results. Then I look at this website being reduced to the two posters and me. Have you wondered why there is no life in this site anymore? Peroform CPR on this thing..... it's in cardiac arrest hahahaha
    Way to go guys, you sunk your own child

    Tips on Buying An Automotive Battery From Crappy Tire: #3

    A new battery sitting on a store shelf can lose its charge and lose its capacity to recharge.

    The date of manufacture is stamped on the the battery. If letters are used, A is probably for January, B is for February, and do on.

    There may also be a second date stamped on the battery, which indicates the "charge by" date, when the store should have recharged it. You have no way of knowing if this has been done.

    The Crappy People would obviously want to sell off the old, stale batteries first, so make sure you know what you are buying.

    So, always buy one that hasn't yet reached the "recharge by" date, and is no more than 6 months old.

    If a customer self served a battery which is possible in some stores, when they returned for warranty, the stickers would still be intact on the battery instead of having been transferred to a warranty folder. With receipt in hand, and the required stickers, a warranty could easily be honoured.

    I suspect not all details are present
    That is interesting you brought that up. I didn't even think about that. You're right tho. The battery would then have all the stickers still attached.

    Only issue I would see is that the receipt itself would not indicate the specific battery rather just the product number. But with an explanation as to why the customer would have a battery that was not processed (warranty filled out and included), I would personally have make a warranty for them and included the receipt to the warranty pamphlet, then processed the warranty.

    Some managers who are not enthusiastic into understanding what occurred COULD assume the battery was suspicious seeing how the customer has a battery without any warranty. Just a receipt for *A* battery but no proof of the actual battery in question.

    But even then a date code could be offered or taking some time out to understand the situation and performing a little extra effort on the managers part to understand the mistake and correct it.

    Excellent, now you're truly providing valuable information to consumers, instead of blind bashing without information. Here's the details you need to know. The manufacturing date might be difficult to decipher. It is stamped into the casting of the battery case. The wet date (fill date) is clearly marked with a white date sticker. The recharge date will be on a round circular sticker.
    Generally batteries are sold first in first out to avoid older ones being on the shelf. A lot of stores, though not all will drop a sold battery onto a charger/tester before it goes out the door to ensure it's got full charge before it lands in a customers vehicle.

    Challenger - if you provide information like this to customers, with actual knowledge not speculation, you will actually gain some confidence in those you are trying to reach. We'd be happy to participate in a forum that helps customers make good decisions.


    There's SO much more to it, that a well run service team can do to relay some expertise. As an example, you should coat the battery terminals with a bit of dielectric grease prior to install. It will create better connectivity and help repel moisture which leads to corrosion. (white/blue powder that builds up on the terminals) Alternatively a little bit of petroleum based lubricant will accomplish the same for moisture repellant. won't get that type of knowledge at Costco or Walmart I promise you that.

    Actually, smart consumers don't give a rat's ass what the Crappy Owners say they think.

    We've been lied to and insulted too many times.

    Sorry - take your self-serving crap someplace else.

    Thank You!

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

    So, we are all still waiting for Angry/CT/Me/Liar/Guy to provide an exact definition of "the best warranty in the business".

    And, still waiting for all the proof Angry/CT/Me/Liar/Guy claimed they had, that Crappy Tire has such a battery.

    Or, should we all just lower the bar for our friend Angry/CT/Me/Liar/Guy? Should we only ask for proof of the claim, 'only retailer in all of Canada with a 10 year warranty'?

    Not that it matters - Angry/CT/Me/Liar/Guy hasn't bothered to provide any proof of that, either.

    And how about all those old claims? Like a "100% conviction rate" for customers who return products with the wrong receipt?

    Yup, quite a reputable bunch of "owners", LOL!

    Check out this thread for perspective on the type of people you are dealing with here:

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

    Where or where are all of these "smart consumers" as you call them?

    I don't see them posting here. H8R and Challenger have spent 4 months debating amongst themselves...and still losing LOL

    You've taken your hate of Canadian Tire to a level you don't even understand anymore. You see the name or the red triangle and just freak out in anger. All your postings about consumers learning fast of CT's ways and how this is bad and that is bad is all unfounded. Every topic you begin on this site returns to the same under tone that you're trying to create....CT owners are liars etc.... you've spun ever thread from batteries to auto service to bicycles into CT owners are liars. Futile attempt at best.

    Millions of Canadians have dozens of other shopping options in cities and towns from Ocean to Ocean....yet they CHOOSE Canadian Tire. DAILY. How do you explain that?

    It’s great to see consumers sharing their stories on web sites like this one, to warn others of the pitfalls of dealing with Crappy Tire.

    The Crappy People don't like it, obviously, but social media is a good way to learn from the mistakes of those who shopped at The Red Triangle of Crap.
