Pep Boys - Right tire came off truck after work

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
My wife took our 2001 F150 truck for brake pad replacements while I was out of town. Pep Boys South Lakeland Store convinced her both of the front brake calipers needed to be replaced (bull)! They charged her over $700 for what should have been a simple brake pad replacement! Several months later while our teenage daughter was driving the right front tire came off the truck and the truck was totaled in the resulting wreck! The police officer that investigated and filed the report stated that "Thank God she hadn't gotten on the primary road yet and gotten up to full speed or she probably...

Took my Tahoe in for a oil change, like I have done for a couple of years now . Got there early so I wouldn't have to wait so long, still waited 2 hours . Next day "time to change oil light" came on. I thought they just hadn't reset it, so I thought I can do that . Did that then "check oil " light came on . What ?? Had my dad check my oil, guess what !! Kevin Balfour the mechanic on duty hadn't put in any or not enough oil in my vehicle to even touch the oil stick . OMG I was so upset . I called Pep Boys, Logan said bring it back down here let us check it out ....

Pep Boys - Bad Service - lying

Went for an oil change and tire rotation. Picked car up and drove @ 20 yards before it started knocking. My toyota prius has 116, 000 miles and my other one 77, 000 and neither one has EVER KNOCKED Felt like it was about to stall out so before I drove right back in. By this time all sorts of warning lights were on.


45 minutes later the general manager and another supervisor person come and tell me they are not positive but it looks like a cylinder failed. They both denied doing anything wrong during the oil change, and it was just a coincidence it failed in the 20 yards they...

Pep Boys - Brakes

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
I went to PEP boys about two weeks ago to have my brakes checked. I checked on the internet and their site offered free brake inspection. Once I got there they told me it would be $19.95(?). I asked about the "free" and that is only if they do the work. Finally got the free.
After close to an hour, and a report that I needed new brakes all around, new rotors and drums. The total? $701, if I didn't need callipers also. (What are the odds?) That whatever I did I needed to get it done real soon, as the front brakes were in bad shape. The rear brakes weren't quite as bad,...

Pep Boys - Run away!

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
Brought my car in for an alignment. They said they could not do the alignment without replacing the brakes. SO I had to leave that night and return several days later so they could order parts. Car made a horrible clunking noise on the way home. At home I checked and had 5 lug nuts on one wheel (all of them) that were finger loose. Although I had made an appointment (the first of the day), they still had not touched it several hours later when I called for an update. They were apparently befuddled when they encountered rust on the brakes, so they turned to two ball ping hammers, which of course...

Pep Boys - Repair promise

I went to pep boys & spoke to the service manager Rodney Robinson. I told him i needed an oil pump installed in a 1996 jeep grand cherokee limited 4x4 5.2L. A three hour job. He agreed and instructed me to have the truck towed in. I did. Then he had all kinds of excuses why he didn't want to do it. This particular truck is the easiest oil pump to ever have to install. You don't have to raise the engine or anything. Needless to say i had to have it towed again and installed elsewhere. It took 3 hrs. Very simple. I want my tow money refunded & they refuse...

Pep Boys - Worst Online Experience

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Pep Boys has the worst online system. I had placed an order for Shocks on my 2001 Chrysler Town and Country Mini Van. I even paid for overnight delivery. Problem with them is that they don’t tell you if they have the item in stock or not. Ordered parts on a Wednesday, nothing from them by following Monday so I called them. Waiting online for them to answer is a real fun experience. The person who answered said they would check and call me back, what a joke. Had to call two more times only for them to be delivered the following Thursday. They were not in stock and they can’t tell if an...

Pep Boys - Nevada, Las Vegas - Battery diagnosis

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I had to have my car jump-started because the battery was dead. I took it to Pep Boys for their free battery charge. I was informed that my battery was completely dead (even though it was only 2 years old) and I had to buy a new one. I agreed to it. After putting in the new battery, I was informed that my battery was being drained as it sat there and there was something else wrong. They told me it would cost another $45 for a diagnostic test to see if it was the alternator, or cables or whatever. I declined. I drove it home and called AAA for their battery diagnosis. The AAA mechanic checked the...

I took my car in because it was making screeching noises as if there was a loose belt.

On 1/28/13, I took the car in... #803 Work order 2138369, the sales person or mechanic told me I had a bad alternator belt and that I needed a new battery. I accepted the work on my car but I am still having the loud screeching noise issue after changing the alternator belt. The battery has also died on me twice...I believe it is a bad battery.

I would like for Pep Boys to remedy this situation. Thanks Beverly...

While my car was in for a tire rotation they scratched my driver side rear bumper. The Moreno Valley store referred me to their "corporate" location who has informed me that they will do nothing to right their wrong. In addition the Moreno Valley tech advised me that my car also needed struts and tires and that the tires were cupping. Not wanting to leave my car with them again (who knows what they would do to it this time) I checked around for strut replacement and was advised by Ford dealership and another repair shop that my car did not need struts and my tires were fine, just a bit...

I needed tires for my car and kept putting it off as my busy schedule kept hacking away at my time. On the weekend I went to a local strip mall to a market and when I came out I had a flat. There was Pep Boys right next door to the market so having not much of a choice I had them put on four new tires. The price, which included new valve stems, was about what I expected to pay at the place I usually go for tires and I was going to get rid of the car in a few months anyway. They tried to include a front end alignment for 39.99 more and I told them to forget and just put on tires. They said it would...

There is a serious problem with the Pep Boys in Orland Park, IL. I brought my car in on 3-24-12 to have front end work done because noises when I hit a bump. They said they will charge $19.99 to inspect the front end and I asked if that amount would be applied to the bill if I have the repair work done. I was told no. They told me what was wrong I gave the OK to have repairs done. I had the control arms repaired. When it was done, I paid the bill and the cashier said the noise would be 95% gone. On the way home, the front-end noise was still there just as always as if nothing was done. I went on...

Pep Boys - California, Los Angeles - Customer Service

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
Service technician Jose Ordenez had horrible customer service. Complained that he did not want to work on my car, and gave me 'lip' about putting it back together after he took it apart.
I am not keen about anyone talking crazy to me that works in a customer service atmosphere. In addition, I believe an automotive service should be customer service friendly to help instill confidence that the work is getting done, or at least to assure you that you have not been forgotten in the waiting area.

NOTE: I waited in the waiting area for two hours while they removed a belt,...
