    Sorry faker advocate, you fool no one.
    It's always entertaining for consumers when a CT Liar talks about being "honest", or even just "more honest".

    A list of frequently told CT Lies can be found here:

    "Why Do CT Defenders Post So Many Lies Here?"

    We should think about adding, "CT Lie - If there is a "sucks" site for any other store, then it proves that Canadian Tire sucks only as much as that other store".

    Clearly untrue, as many earlier posts already showed, starting here:

    "Repair Only Warranty" - No Refund, No Exchange"

    With 600 sucks.com sites covering almost any major business or employer, it just proves that there will always be complainers no matter how successful a business is. I would argue that the bigger and more successful a business is, the more complainers there are. Just a fact of life.

    Re: Simoniz Scam

    it's actually a good thing if the ct reps don't know how much their store sucks - then they won't fix it and thier reputation will continue to decline

    i'm glad that word is getting out via this web site - people are learning just how much this chain sucks - we don't need the rep or fake rep to confirm this

    maybe other stores suck, too - but the evidence on this site suggests that ct sucks more in canada

    certainly we've seen that their return polices suck more than any other store - see this thread for a comparison:

    "Repair Only Warranty" - No Refund, No Exchange"

    we've also heard enough automotive repair horror stories to tell all our friends to stay away

    "Friends Don't Let Friends Visit Canadian Tire"

    LOL....pretty soon Faker Advocate loser won't be able to shop anywhere.

    Check out the other 600 sucks.com sites.

    His story changes by the day under scrutiny of all his lies.

    All I can hope is that he actually gets a friend.....sad.

    Re: Simoniz Scam

    I've noticed a concerning trend.

    The stale old lies of the fake rep isn't bringing in the number of views it used to.

    Sure, the Simoniz thread is a long-time favourite among consumers. We all seem eager to read about the pit-falls of shopping at Crappy Tire, so an average of about 400 views happen every week.

    But the lack of content by the rep just isn't the big crowd-pleaser it used to be.

    Maybe instead of insults and the same old lies, he/she could post something with a little more crowd-appeal?

    After all, no site traffic = no ad revenue. Ditto for "donate" clicks - not going to happen without some kind of lustre.

    If he/she is only interested in making the real rep's look bad, this just isn't going to cut it, either. Hardly worth their notice.

    For instance, vague claims like, "his story changes", without any specifics or hard evidence, just won't draw in the audience.

    No, sheer volume won't help us 'make the quarter', LOL. We need quality, not just quantity!

    Re: Simoniz Scam

    So, not to blow the trumpet of CT, cause usually their return policy does suck nuts, but two weeks ago, I stupidly bought the Simoniz 1800. Same story as most people, after about 15 minutes, the handle started leaking. I THEN did my research online to discover how crappy a system it is. I had purchased it based on my Father In Laws experience with one, which was amazing.
    In any case, two weeks and one use after buying the thing, it started to pack it in. I went right up to CT and asked to speak to the manager. I already suspected that I was not going to be able to return, or exchange it at all, but thought I would try. I only brought my receipt with me, because I didnt want to pack the whole thing up only to be told I wasted my time. I talked to the manager for about 5 minutes and he allowed me to do an exchange on the unit for a different make and model entirely. I told him thanks and that I would be back in the next day.
    I went in at lunch today and was told by all the "ever so helpful" clerks that an exchange was out of the question as it was clearly marked repair only on the receipt.
    Long story short, they ended up calling the manager, who was off duty by now to confirm that I could exchange it. I exchanged it for the the Coleman 1900 Pressure Washer......and guess what? It does NOT say that I cannot return it.
    Looks like CT will back Coleman, but not their much advertised Simoniz.....

    Cool Re: Simoniz Scam

    A buddy of mine and I each bought Simonz pressure washers.
    We have the same problem as most of the stories in this thread... Leaking guns, and thus no pressure.

    I took mine apart to see if I could figure out what was wrong, and found a plastic tube that split open.
    This is two pieces plastic glued together... Obviously a design flaw as it cannot sustain the pressure
    coming out of the little compressor.

    Sure, if you leave you unit outside and the tubes are full or water, it would crack... but I kept mine in the basement
    and it still split open.

    I agree, Simonz is crap, simply because they obviously must know about this flaw and are doing nothing to correct it.

    As for CT, our local store is usually good about taking back merchandise, the only logical explamation for the no return policy where you are, is that they got so many returns, they decided to push the issue back to the customer...
    These stores are individually owned, so the only practital solution, although frustrating, is what our friend did and embarrass them until they cave...

    Power to the people...

    Cheers

    Thanks for sharing your experience with this forum - sound like the Simoniz Scam lives on!

    It looks like you bought the Simoniz 1800 electric, #39-8561-6 for $249.00, but were able to exchange it for a Coleman 1900 PSI electric that also goes for $249.99. Same price, 100 PSI more, a better make, and a better refund policy - Good upgrade!

    I see the CT site says this for the Coleman warranty: “This product carries a special warranty”. So, again, ‘buyer beware” and check with the store before you buy - no other way to know what the return policy is.

    (See the handy 17-step “Easy Return” process, here: Return policy)

    For comparison, Costco has a Karcher 1800 PSI electric model for only $199.00 – that’s $50 less than Crappy Tire – put the savings into a membership, and save money all year long, and as a bonus get the option of a full refund for 1 year if you are not satisfied (even if it's been used - that really ticks off the CT people!).

    Don’t like the membership idea? How about Home Depot? They’ve got to a Stanley 1800 for $199.99 - still $50 less than CT. Not satisified with it? Return it for a full refund, and make the CT'ers mad!

    It seems to me like there are some valuable “Lessons Learned”:

    - Don’t buy from CT unless you are positive it doesn’t have the “repair only” policy (i.e, no refund, no exchange), and especially not the “no return, no exchange, no repair” policy (i.e., “no warranty”).

    - Never buy the ‘el-cheapo’ CT house brands, like Jobmate, Yardworks and Simoniz. In fact, you can sometimes get more for the same money, at the same CT store. But not as much as you can get at their competitors!

    - Don’t count on CT to ever ‘bend the rules’ and give you a refund, even if they promise to do it the next day. Buy anywhere else!

    Oh, and before I forget: you might want to check out this thread, for information on your rights to refunds for defective products - could apply in your case, if the store won't give a refund or exchange:

    Sale of Goods Act

    Congrat's on your exchange of a "repair only" product!

    LOL...I wonder why CT sells more pressure washers than any other retailer.....including simoniz, karcher, and the new Coleman. And you should have checked the flyer.....would put the other retailers to shame on the price of the Karcher, without a membership fee.
    Better get facts straight on warranty as well, but of course you speak without knowledge yet again...tsk, tsk, faker advocate.....you get called on your lies each and every day.

    Just to clarify:

    - Despite some vague accusations, no incorrect information was contained in the above post.

    - The information presented on the return policies of the above products were confirmed via the web site, by inferring the policy from the warranty statement (yet another hoop that CT makes you just through).

    - Information on the Simoniz 1800 electric can be found here: Simoniz 1800 PSI Electric Pressure Washer | Canadian Tire. Note: "Repair Only".

    - The Karcher 1800 from CT was not discussed by the original poster.

    - For CT's details on the Karcher 1800, see: Karcher X-Series 1800 Electric Pressure Washer | Canadian Tire. Note the price: $249.99.

    - No information has been presented on this thread regarding any sale prices on the Karcher 1800 at CT, so any claims regarding these prices should be viewed with suspicon. Regardless, any sale price that may have existed was not available to the original poster, and is not available to customers now.

    - The CT site has no details on the return policy of the Karcher 1800.

    - For details on a Karcher 1800 from Costco for $199.99 (less than the price at CT), see here: Costco - Kärcher 1800 PSI Electric Pressure Washer

    - Canadian Tire has a policy against providing refunds (or sometimes even exchanges) for defective pressure washers, but other major retailers have a policy to provide refunds.

    - Canadian Tire has a policy against providing refunds when a customer is not happy after trying out a product, but other major retailers have a policy to provide refunds.

    - For these reasons, and many others, it is best to avoid CT.

    Why do those who claim to represent CT post so much misinformation and so many lies here?
