    Hi, Highborn:

    I apologize for the delay in getting back to you.

    First of all, congratulations on the resolution of your issue with Crappy Tire!

    It seems like consumers are on a roll, clawing their way out from under the piles of Crap that have been dumped upon them.

    If I understand your post correctly, you’ve managed to compel Crappy Tire into releasing your vehicle! Woo-Hoo.

    (But one would expect that a competent mechanic, having already mis-diagnosed the problem, and then utterly failing to correct the original problem, would have sheepishly returned the vehicle to you, with a contrite ‘sorry for the inconvenience’, and not even bothered to mention the cost of any parts they might have mistakenly put onto your vehicle. But, as I wrote: "competent" is the key word!)

    From the sounds of it, they actually should be on the hook, to complete the entire ‘repair’ they agreed to perform, whether it be water pumpt, radiator replacement, or whatever, for the original quote of $428 plus 10% (I.e., an extra $42.80), even though they claim the job should have been quoted at $1800 plus tax.

    But it certainly sucks that you had to be dragged through all of this, due only to CT’s incompetence, followed by greed and arrogance. It would be nothing more that basic fairness if they also compensated you for all your lost time battling with them to get a fair deal, plus the court hassles, etc. Not to mention all the stress and worry they caused, by not saying in the first place that this would cost $1800 (in which case, you would have just walked away, knowing the vehicle wasn’t worth fixing).

    By the way, before giving up on this vehicle entirely, I suggest that you take the vehicle to a competent mechanic for a correct diagnosis of what’s actually wrong, as well as an accurate estimate on what it will cost to once and for all fix it.

    Again, Congratulations on your win, and Sorry that you fell into this trap in the first place!

    Hi CTH8R
    Thank you for all your comments, suggestions, and also kind words of support during this procedure,Without your help, I wouldn't have any succeeded. right now i am thinking to take CT to the court even i get less than what they offer me right now, they would have found the solution before i filed the claim. however i got the key point from you so i need more comments & suggestions, i have some more information which i want to share with you (recently). i would like just to email you for now and if you find it is OK you would publish it here for every body to see.
    thank you again & regards

    From Complaints Board:

    http://www.complaintsboard.com/compl...t-c685161.html

    Took my car for the e test with the check engine ON to Canadian tire, they connect it to the reader and it did not pass due to "cooling system performance". They want 123.40 dollars for a "drive clean emissions test diagnostic " which is only done by pushing the bottom of errace code on the reader and take probably 5 minutes of their bussi time to see IF IT COMES BACK ON. So if you want to trow 162.95 (39.55 of their time plugin your car to the reader and123.40 on punching a bottom that errace the error code ) take your car to Canadian tire brantford or probabli any Canadian tire ..by the way the car had nothing just an error from God knows what!!!
    Due diligence is going to cost you.!!!

    Very interesting thread, over on Red Flag Deals.

    It's pretty funny, how the CT Defenders try to pretend they don't suck more than other shops - FAIL!!

    This stuff happens far more than you think. Shops like canadian tire and most dealerships pay the mechanics flat rate. There is no incentive to take their time and do it right, it's all about how many repairs you can push through in a day. Quality work is not longer valued by the shop owners, it's the reason I left the trade.

    Wow, reading all these comments makes me glad I've never been to Canadian Tire for auto service. I wasn't planning on it anyhow, but I'll be sure to avoid them and tell everyone else I know to avoid them.

    Seems like CTC hasn't learned anything in 30 years. In 1981, I took my car into a CTC store in Calgary to have a block heater installed. The "technician" managed to crack my engine block in the process, resulting in an engine replacement that took about one week. Them the very same day I got my car back, I was on the highway to Banff when the engine siezed up. Turns out they had used the old oli from my original engine to refill the new one, metal shards included. Finally, after 5 weeks, I got my car back in good running order; however, I had to sue CTC in small claims court for the cost of a rental vehicle. The CTC store owner claimed he didn't have to supply me with a rental bacause I only brought my car in for a block heater. Since that jos was completed the same day, a renatl was not authorized. The fact that I went without my car for 5 weeks was apparently "beyond his control". The judge actually thought he was on Candid Camera before realizing the man was serious.

    Having had numerous bad experiences at Crappy Tires in both B.C & AB, including a CV joint boot improperly installed, oil plug installed improperly after an oil change (woke up to an oil flood in my driveway) my best advice would be *avoid Crappy Tire like the plague*. Their costly and shoddy repairs aren't worth the aggravation. And a resolution takes forever and is a HUGE fight.

    If Canadian Tire was dissapointed then why were they jerking this guy around? The words coming out from their mouths isn't matching up with their actions.
