    Re: Canadian Tire Sucks at Auto Repairs - Unnecessary, over-priced, incompetent, incorrect and incomplete!

    Norm M.: Canadian Tire mechanics are paid flat rate which means, the more work they repair, the more the mechanic earns. Once the car is on the hoist, routine things such as a brake job may easily become a suspension job and the customer is charged for the labour of replacement of parts that may already be off the car. It's sort of similar to double dipping, yet they follow a prescribed labour rate so it seems they not overcharging. Yet even novice mechanics repair faster than the book rate. Mechanics often prosper by "finding" things wrong and sometimes it's not uncommon for good parts to be replaced long before they need replacing.

    Re: Canadian Tire Sucks at Auto Repairs - Unnecessary, over-priced, incompetent, incorrect and incomplete!

    LorraineandChris S.: I just tried to buy some winter tires and rims from your Mapleview Rd Barrie store and had nothing but problems. Your "insta app" for the credit card (to take advantage of the no interest payments) took almost 2 hours. No one advised me that the approval I finally received was only good for 24 hours. As it took so long in the store to get the approval, I made plans to come back two days later and have the tires installed, but then the card was rejected as it had been more than the 24 hours (another 2 hours wasted). Then to be treated rudely by the service manager and told "there was nothing they could do". It seems the staff are not aware of store policies and immediate managers could definitely benefit from some customer service training. At least the store manager had the courage to call and apologize. Not good customer service! I cancelled the card and the tire order and will take my business to a more professional operator.

    Gord G.: tried to explain this before, I worked at CTC # 126 for ten years on the shop floor, we had at times as many as 30 mechanics working, of those 30 five or six were top tier, the others not so much

    Seriously? This mechanic/technician/drop-out needs to find a different sector to work in:

    John D.: I agree have not had a good experience with car repairs in two different stores. But do purchase other products there. Won't take car to any of canadian tire stores.



    John D.: I did that and it took over 9 months to get any refund... as for car repairs never again. I will not even recommend repairs being done for anybody. I think you need better mechanics as well as better customer relations in the Auto repair departments.

    Dana C: CT wanted to charge me 450.00 to replace my rear shocks.. I laughed.. then asked how long it would take.. they said 3 hours. I laughed again and left.. Went somewhere where I got it down for 260 which includes alignment and it only took 1.5 hours.. Your such a scam company it makes me sick.

    Trevor L.: The canadian tire in scarborough on Rylander has the worst customer service I have ever seen. Huge waste of time this morning they really need to work on their communication skills. I ave been a long time customer of the automotive department with my 2 cars and will be no more! Good job on losing another customer Canadian Tire. Do not ever go to the rylander location in scarborough for your car if you want to be treated properly!

    Eric S.: I go to Canadian tire with my daughter to get stuff done on her car and a price is given she signs an estimate.Today she picks up her car (1 day late)and the bill is over $200 higher...no phone call or anything to advise. you sexist store, taking advantage of a young woman. I smell an escalation Monday.will be lodging a complaint with better business bureau and the Quebec consumer's protection. 4 winter tires (at $92.00/tire + 4 rims + installation of a car starter (that was bought the week before at your store) over 1300.00...btw the car is new. I wish you would remove the Canadian in your name. you slander the name
