Another Happy Canadian Tire Customer.............not

So yestarday i decided to fix my front driver's side wheel/tire cuz it was loosing air too fast and i had to put more air every 3 to 4 days.

I decided to go to this Canadian Tire(in Markham) since its only 2 min drive from me and thinking "come on, its an easy job and they can't screw this one up". For those of you who don't know what this place is....its like a starting point for young and stupid car techs here in Canada......they do everything wrong in there.....everything....and i thought i'd be the lucky one....was i ever wrong

So i get there....this chubby 20 year old kid starts working on my car. Fixes the wheel. After he was done i carefuly inspected the car on the parking lot trying to find some damage anywhere on my ride. Everything was good at the point.

Anyways, I get and started working on my car. Took header and flex off and replaced them with stock parts.

So i was thinking what the hell i might as well do my brakes (bought new rotors and pads at the same CT that day). Started unbolting the nuts on that rim that he worked on......3 came off pretty easy....but one didn't wanna come out. I started going harder and the nut started slipping....at that point i was it im taking it back tomorrow for them to take it off.......those bastards......

Get there today....see the same kid, call him over and tell him "Dude, you over tighten the s out of my nut"....so he comes over with tools and no luck.....

so he then says "Let me drive the car in the shop and deal with it there". Thats where i made a mistake by letting him drive my car at that point.

So 2 mins later i come over (the right side of the car faces me) and i don't know how i saw it right away but BHUVBUBD&^$^%&$R^%RE^!!!!!!!!!




i was like "dude look what you did to my rim!!!"........he comes over and looks.....and says "i didn't do it!"
oh yea? then why is there red paint in that scab and tire then from your car hoist(which is red ofcourse)

so he starts cleaning it with his fingers.....im like leave it!! (freackin idiot!!)
....i don't even know if it can be fixed now

so whatever ,somebody calls the manager over....he then looks and says "yep, i'd say he did it and we r gonna pay for it"
im like good-good

so he walks away to wright some paper.......mean while there's a team of 3 yahoo's trying to take the nut off of my other rim on another side.....by knocking in differnet sokets and damaging everything around that nut......so that rim gets damaged now too but not as bad though


OMG i wanted to kill all of them!
so i go to the office and tell manager to come over again....he then says that that rim is gonna be paid for as well.....wrote the paper where i go to this rim shop and get everything fixed + a pair of new rim locks (manager forgot to sign that paper and i was too depressed to realize that at that time)

these morons finaly get the nut off
and here's what it looks like



all i have to say that they lost me as a customer for good

Wow. I just don't understand how retarded people at those shops can be. I mean I'm not even 20 and I've never taken a formal automotive class of any kind that they supposedly took and got certified for and I still know twice as much as half the people I come across in those places. It's a wonder they get hired.

OMG WTF!!!!!11!!1E1!ViN

Thats nuts, at least they are going to make up for their screw up. I had to take my car there for my last brake job beacuse I still hadnt moved my tools to my new house and they were the only ones who could take me in that day (I had a to work the next day and road trip later in the week). My dam rotors now rust up like a mofo (I had them put in new rotors and pads).

They always get me.....

Dont feel like this hasnt happened to anyone else!!!!!!!!!!

Ive had to replace all 8 front lugs and studs (for some reason only the fronts....) because tire kingdom has over tightened them. I can do it no in about 5 mins...its not hard lol. But I feel you on this. People in those shops are stupid! Ive only had one guy that knew what he was doing and I tipped him for it too.

I think Ford installed weaker front studs....
