I will NEVER go back to ANY Canadian Tire Auto Center to service my cars anymore, NEVER, EVER.
I bought a set of winter tires (Goodyear) at this Lasalle store and have them installed and I felt the vibrationg on the steering wheel. I went to Honda's dealership to check, and I was told that three out of four tires needed to redo balance, the other one (the right rear tire)"has wobble", not workable, have to be replaced. The mechanicians at Canadian Tire not only did bad job on balancing but also failed to notice the tire defect.
There are some good reasons that the mechanicians at Canadian Tire are SOOOOO bad on both experiences and skills. First of all, many of them are trainees, they just started to learn to repair, and they learn their skills and making errors right on your car. Just like Canadian Tire's Commercial says "I will start with you!". Second, they work on many different cars, cars that made in different countries, different brands, different models, how can you expect them to know all the requirements and specifications of all cars? It is IMPOSSIBLE.
So I went to the garage to claim my warranty repair and exchange. The employee who served me did not want to admit the problem at beginning, untill I showed him the service report from Honda. When I bought the new tires, they charged $11.96 +tax without informing me for inflating the tires with nitrogen gas. God knows what they really put in the tires. We all know that 78% of the air we breath is nitrogen. When they finished work on my CRV, they did not give me the original receipt back, which is the purchasing of the one set of tire and wheel, plus extended warranty, total $713.
When I got home. I realized that they did not put my wheel lock key back to my glove compartment. Having no other choice I went back to the garage the next morning. The employee gave the key back to me without apologize, not even a "sorry", no surprise either. It seams that this kind of things is very normal to them.
The same Canadian Tire garage, 6 years ago. I had my Honda Civic serviced there before winter coming. I requested a engine oil change and intallation of winter tires (already on wheels). The coming spring, when I want to change the four season tires back, I found out that they were still on my car, the mechanician at canadian tire did not install the winter tires on last autumn at all. I was driving the whole witer assuming had winter tires on my car. I know, I know, I did not pay attention. Because back then I trusted them. I thought they were professional. Believe me, they are not professional in any way.
Do not risk your life, do not service your car at canadian tire.
