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

    More warnings about automotive service at Canadian Tire, in response to the jumping-the-gun-again "What Does Spring Maintenance Mean" thread:


    Graham Dutton It means keeping my car far from Canadian Tire

    Paul Robinson Canadian tire has no clue about maintenance at any time of year,their focus is to cheat people out of money.

    Shawn S It means to go anywhere but Canadian Tire to have your maintenance done .. Because they know everything they find wrong .. they sell you parts..So they nit pick everything for more $$$$$$$$

    Barry Tyerman Are u kidding service at Canadian tire??? A bunch of fucking morons!!

    Andrew Bartholomew Chaplin It means going to a garage with better mechanics and better supervision than Canadian Tire can hire at the rates they pay. Sorry, you're just not good enough.

    Andrea McDonald Waiting til closer yo actual spring before ecven talking about it. Then going to my Ford deaker, who does the actual work, rather than creating a "make work" project like the local Can Tire did.

    Sue St-Pierre Better places and better prices. Ya you got that right and I' d throw in better service while I'm at it lol

    Bill Gratton I hate the mechanics ripping me off

    Gerald Macdonald never taking my truck to canadian tire again!...rip offs.

    Gary Neil Corbett Ladies - never take your car there for work - see what Marketplace says about them - they sell you parts you don't need and pad your bill

    Doug Martin I had a problem with canadian tire in stoney creek years ago, got my money back from head office, never trusted them again ,they are history

    Dan Murphy not bringing my vech to Canadian Tire so I don't have to worry about my oil filter falling off or my fan coming off my newly installed waterpump and going through my hood or radiator

    Usually they just mess up the cars, and not the owners:


    Terry Martin Oh, and spring maintenance DEFINITELY does not mean going to Canadian Tire. The last time I did, the mechanic at the Nepean Hunt Club store asked me into the service bay while the car was on the hoist to point out a loose tie rod end, so he shook the undercarriage and a socket the size of a beer can fell off the radiator and hit me in the head, sending me to the hospital for observation and tetanus shots. When I later called the store, the store manager would not only not take my call, he would not authorize them to give me a few dollars break on the bill.

    Raquel Telford Let this be my OFFICIAL DISLIKE post for Canadian Tire. After causing a crack in my windshield when I took the truck to get the wipers changed, they gave us the run around for 4 days only to deny any responsibilities even though we have taken the truck and had it examined by Ford dealer and Car Canada and both agreed that the crack had started right at the base of the wiper.

    Just came across this on the Smart Canucks site.

    The story and some of the follow-up comments are a few years old ... and yet, we keep hearing stories exactly like these, even years later! Just a coincidence, I suppose, after they sunk all that money into 'revitalizing' their 'core' automotive business!

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

    Ironically, these horror stories were posted in response to a $20 off coupon for an oil change.

    Sounds like the kind of back-lash we saw this weekend, on CT's own facebook page, about bicycles.

    Here's more from Smart Canucks about poor auto service. Old? Yes! But still the sad state of affairs at many a CT garage ...

    Not a horror story, but a funny response to a house-wares thread on the CT Facebook site:


    Jordan Cousins Well given how awful they are when it comes to vehicles and maintenance, makes sense they are going to branch out into something that is harder for them to screw up.

    Update from Lin Cripps:

    Lin Cripps Almost 3 months now and Can Tire, Unicity, Winnipeg has still not dealt with my complaint, just how long should it take to pick up the phone and make that call????

    Maybe Brakes deserves its own thread, like Tires and Oil Changes?

    At least he eventually got his money back.


    Brad Schamber Canadian Tire on the south side of Edmonton 3830 Calgary trail has rip off mechanics - after an inspection and replace the brake pads-rotors and drums $1100 - my caliper seized up on front tire the next day - and they wouldn't pay to replace calipers- but did get customer service in Toronto to pay for it -lost a day's pay
