    David N.: Terrible experience at the Silver Linden Canadian Tire store in Richmond Hill on Saturday. Brought in my vehicle at around 9:30 am to get the light bulb
    replaced for my plates. I told them one of the screws was stripped on
    the drivers side so they said it could be done but It will be
    approximately 100 dollars. After the car stayed with them for 8 hours,
    they report back saying that the socket is broken and they got the
    passenger side working. I told them the passenger side was already
    working ---I changed the light bulb myself. They were able to remove the
    broken screw on the driver side but said they will have to order a new
    socket replacement from the dealer. I drove home and removed the cover
    myself and replaced the bulb on the driver side. Of course I turn on
    my lights and both bulbs are lit. I called the store back asking for
    the Service or Store Manager to file the complaint at around 6pm, but
    nobody bothered picking up the page for service. I'm never shopping at
    Canadian Tire again.

    Martin B.: People beware of Canadian Tire in Mt Pearl....Terrible service
    To directly quote the "service manager" at Canadian Tire in Mount Pearl this morning: "wasn't damaged in the shop" (despite not being aware the vehicle was with them the night before)...

    "We gotta find the frigging file"....classy

    "It was windy last night, Volkswagens are known for this"

    "we got a big parking lot, we don't know if someone damaged in there"



    Martin B.: I've called 20 mins on hold and emailed.

    Raluca N.: Went to the Dufferin/Finch location just two days ago, for a simple oil change...engine started to smoke up on the highway afterwards and the next day I took it to my volvo dealership, who charged me 250 dolars for cleaning up the oil that apparently the canadian tire mechanic had spilled all over my engine, which leaked by the sparkplugs and everything else...he didn't even have the decency to clean up his mess. I was told that my engine could have caught fire...thanks canadian tire, guess my life is not valuable to you...who trained THIS guy?

    Andrew M.: Canadian Tire continues being a disreputable company. I took in a dented winter rim for re-shaping and Mechanic tried to convince me that I needed new brake pads and rotors - even though they pads and rotors are only 2 months old!! Different garage confirmed that my brakes are "like new".Canadian tire needs to employ it's mechanics differently so they don't consistently attempt to rip of customers.

    This is just exploitation:


    Brian P.: My friend went to the one here and got windshield wipers and asked if they could put them on for her. The wipers cost her $40 total and they charged her almost $100 to put them on. Told her afterwards that it was a minimum 1 hour shop rate charge

    A 3-letter word for "driving after CT works on your car":

    Laurie P.: I guess "bus" as well!! I made the mistake of taking my car to Canadian tire for a winter tuneup. Ended up with a bill for $650.00. Now everything seems to be going. Never Ever Again!!!

    i work in a canadian tire store, as parts person, and, if nothing else was done to her vehicule, if they just installed wipers... then, she overpaid, she should go back, and ask a manager for some explanation, and ask for a refund. Normally, to instal wipers, it takes about 5 minutes for both, if they had charged 5-10$ it would have been ok, but not 100$.
