    theres 2 near my house, and i have enough bad experiences that i choose not to go to them anymore for service.

    they both have tried to charge me for things that did not need replacing.

    i dont like that they will not let me in the garage to see what is broken either. i know its a liability but come on.. if i dont agree that somethings worn? walk me out and prove it to me.


    my latest CT problem was i asked them balance my wheels day as i had a bad vibe from the rear end.. they gave me a list of general maintenance items to be replaced. On it they included a pcv for my truck.

    the 2003 dodge hemi doesnt have a pcv valve. 04 and up do.. 03 is the oddball.

    Thats BS any shop that wont let you see it is bullshitting you, our policy (canadian tire corporate) is nobody in the bays UNSUPERVISED as long as you are with an advisor or technician you are good to be in there to check anything out. You just cant touch or work on the vehicle while its in there.

    I'm sure that this sites newest sponsor would be more than happy to perform a safety inspection on your vehicle for you.
    It's not under warranty is it?
    DONE with it!

    Just make sure the ownership has no liens on it, get a UVIP before you buy it
