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

    Here's my experience at Canadian tire (Mccowan and Sheppard).

    It was a sunday morning and I drove my car in there cuz I needed a fuse changed. And the service advisor told me to leave the car in there for 2 hours... um... when I'm the only car in site... then he says that "the system isnt working". Um... when a lady at the other cashier just cashed out someone?

    And he told me it would cost $120 just for the "diagnostic". I.E. Just looking at your car and not even fixing it.

    So I just left. Felt something really suspicious and fishy.

    And then I took it to one of these small family-owned shops.

    Omg...

    $10 DOLLARS!!!!

    TEN DOLLARS!!!!!

    AND ALL IT TOOK WAS 5 MINUTES TO CHANGE THAT FUSE!!!!!

    In short, Canadian Tire = Criminal Tire. Deliberately trying to rip people off!!!

    but... its just some dishonest mechanic or mechanic who is fresh outta school and doesnt really have the experience. They're not trying to rip you off. No malicious intent. Just lack of experience.

    Um... what about the time when I went there for an oil change (cost me about $50 after all the extra fees and what not)... and I was told that my engine is supposedly leaking (would cost me around $300 to fix the leak) when it clearly ISNT LEAKING!!!

    I was showed some oil dripping from the engine. No crack. Um... obvious he smeared it there to make it look like a leak.

    What criminals.

    Canadian Tire should be put outta business. TELL EVERYONE TO STOP GOING THERE!!!

    Glenda Baxter Streifel Well then maybe Canadian Tire should stop the spam, why does facebook show "I like Canadian Tire" when i have never even visited the page or press like. I support the fact that they are supporting ahtletes, however I do not suppor their automotive department ripping people off repeatedly.

    Another example:



    Les Acocella Canadian tire tried to over charge me $60.00 but couldn't explain why. After reviewing the bill they said it was a glitch. Another guy in the line up was over charge by $80 some.
    I think I know where they get the extra money to donate. A "glitch".

    Just realized this looked like it was posted by me.

    But it was really by Chris Lim, at this link:

    Hilarious the way CT got caught in a lie about unnecessary repairs. Gee, did they say you were low on "blinker fluid", too?


    Cam Villeneuve Good old Canadian Tire! The same guys who told me that my car's cabin air filter was very dirty and should be changed!... Problem is, that car does not have a cabin air filter! How could they check it and find it dirty?

    Ok, not really a 'horror story', but it gave me a good laugh:


    Franco Cuzzola This photo is so fake. You never see people smiling after shopping at Canadian Tire. Especially after leaving their automotive repair center.

    On a freezing and snowy early-February day, Crappy Tire decided to start a facebook thread on "What does spring maintenance mean to you?"

    David answered thusly:

    David Dreher haha! It sure as hell doesn't mean taking my vehicle in to Canadian Tire; They are notorious for poor workmanship and deplorable customer service.

    i was yapping with a good m8 of mine yesterday.he bought a set of tires from you know where,and when he got it home discovered that all the studs were almost completely stripped.obviously they hadnt put the nuts on properly.so he had to take off the brake shoe casing and do the job himself.he has also barred himself from CT in the future!
