Firestone Complete Auto Care - Tire Pressure Sensor Band
I wrote corporate office and received NO response - evidently they don't care about customers!
May/2019 - had new tires put on and they noted my right rear tire was slightly bent.
June/2921 - took car in to have tires rotated, aligned and balanced. The clerk that waited on me failed to note the balancing.
July/2021 - took car back because it drove worse than before it was aligned and rotated. They told me that balancing was not a part of normal servicing - not unless customer requests. They then proceeded to give me a quote of $2, 700 plus to replace brakes, struts, shocks.
Aug./2021 - I had my personal mechanic replace shocks, struts, brakes. He used to work for Firestone.
Sept.14, 2021 - I took the car in to have the slightly bent wheel replaced. I had called in on Aug. 28 and spoke to a gentleman who said he had to order the wheel from Wisconsin because it wasn't made any more - he told me it would take 5-7 days to get the wheel in and that they would call me and schedule an appointment. On Sept 11 I called the store - the man said the wheel was not there and asked me to callback 2 days later. The "manager Troy" said the wheel was there and scheduled an appointment.
Sept. 14 - took car in to have wheel mounted. Note on worksheet shows wheel has band sensor - band recommended.
Oct 8 I was on a road trip - the warning came on about tire pressure. I stopped at a gas station and checked air pressure in all tires. The tire on the wheel that had been replaced was overinflated to 37 pounds which exceeded manufacturer recommendations.
Oct. 9 I took car back to Firestone. They said the tire pressure sensor band needed to be replaced - they said don't drive the car because it would cause more damage. They said the bands were not made any more (which was BS) and to take the car to a dealership for repair.
Oct. 28 I took the car to a dealership and they replaced the tire pressure sensor band.
That repair alone cost me $345.73 - for lousy work performed by a "mechanic" at Firestone- the cost and the time and frustration is not measurable!
I wrote to Firestone's corporate office on Oct.11 and NEVER received an acknowledgement.
The Firestone store involved is the one located at 10501 S Parker Rd, Parker, Co.
Store #028762. Manager is Troy who never apologized for anything and he didn't try to do anything towards customer satisfaction. The mechanic who did the really sloppy work was 06 Blain.
Firestone Complete Auto Care - Service
Was going on vacation so I took my truck to have 4 new tires installed and alignment when I got my truck back tires had 4 different tire pressures and my steering wheel was no longer straight we called and spoke with service manager and told us to bring truck back we brought truck back and service manager wasn't there when he told us he would be to take care of it they aligned truck but still had 4 different tire pressures 2 in the 70psi and 2 in the 50psi manager never called us back to resolve the problem and inconveniencing us and delaying our honeymoon trip which we were driving and still have not heard back from him this is not acceptable and horrible customer service now I want to know what is going to be done otherwise I'll take my business elsewhere very unhappy with this experience here is a copy of the bill that was not done and charged for.
Desired outcome: I will never use your stores again due to lack of professionalism to call back or be there

Firestone Complete Auto Care - Brake-rotor replacement - poor, unethical, undocumented service
Visit 1. Squeaky front brakes. Did appointment online with 'waiting' selected. Went there on time. An hour later, still in waiting room, when asked I was told they did not look because they thought I was dropping off! Finally, another half hour to look at my car. Apart from the brakes-rotors, I received quotes for tires and brake fluid replacement (which I denied). Another couple of hours when they presumably (see below) replaced all 4 brakes and rotors for $750.
Within two weeks and less than 200 miles, the brakes were squeaking again - this time likely also one in back.
Visit 2. Did 'waiting' appointment at 7am in the morning which turned out to be a wintery day. I was told they were full, and I needed to come back in a week. BTW, nobody called.
Visit 3. Car was inspected in 45 minutes and I had that old recommendations for tires and brake fluid once more. When denied, I was told that they were busy and I had to come back! Only after firm insistence, they presumably replaced 3 sets of brakes and rotors in next hour and half. When asked what exactly happened in first visit, the receptionist went to talk to manager/technician in the repair shop, only to come back 5 minutes later to tell me they did not know!
Reported to customers service. Nothing yet.
Visit 4 coming? Will update. Thank you.

Firestone Complete Auto Care - Our 2013 Buick Verano
I have already sent a letter to Firestone headquarters along with all paperwork that I have. I am writing this letter becaused I was charged on my Firestone credit card for work that was incomplete at best. I reside with my wife Darlene in Clifton Prk, NY. I am 76 years of age. We have one vehicle for transportation. I think that I should state that my wife is being treated for bone cancer which makes transportation that much more important. I am not attempting to obtain something that we dont deserve. This was not done honestly or correctly. I brought our vehicle to Firestone at Clifton Park for the purpose of getting our veh inspected. The engine light was on and they performed the necessary tests to determine the cause. The manager (Sean) and the mechanic told and showed me that I had two leaks that must be corrected before I could get my vehicle inspected. Four appointments later including a $60.00 gas cap I was sent away without repair. This is awful. I left our vehicle there for two days and had to pay for transportation. I cannot believe that you support this outcome.

Firestone Complete Auto Care - remove and replace ignition coil c1543(invoice 154133 dated 11-19-2019)
I have written to you before concerning problems with my 2010 Hyundai accent and firestone. On 11-19-2019 Firestone on Montauk highway in W Babylon NY replaced 587.43 in parts. remove and replace ignition coil (Duralast Ignition) part C1543. I told the manager there and he stated if my check engine light wasn't on and the meter reads no codes he could not help me(I stated i put my meter on it and it read no codes.)(firestone charges 99.99 every time they put the meter on so i purchased y own) Coils should not go bad in 2 yrs. I ony have 65, 888 miles on my car and the furthest I have been with it is brooklyn. So I just had to pay 320.00 to have coils installed because the ones firestone replaced were no good.Explain this to me? I feel its a disgrace the way firestone rips off people with that meter charge. Advance and auto zone do it for free. And like me many people purchase their own meters but yet firestone personnel will not accept the readings from other people. I want to know what you are going to do about the coils that were installed in 2019 being I had to have new ones installed? A credit on my firestone card would be nice.I went to another mechanic and now will be going there in the future as I feel if a manager relies on a meter to tell him a problem, then he knows nothing about cars.
Desired outcome: email me [email protected]
