I have been using the firestone location listed above since I began driving this car in 2014. I have used this location for most repairs, maintenance and tire purchased, as well (totaling 24 service visits) for the last five years.
I scheduled an appoint at the location for 8:00 am, on 6/15/19. The service requested was for an oil change, tire rotation and to check the reason why my engine light was on. When I arrived, I was told that they would be finished with my car about 10 am. I was disappointed at the timing, because I had made an appointment, but was ok with it, since it was saturday. I ran a couple of errands, and then returned at 9 am, and waited. After 11 am, I was told that in addition to the oil change, I need a new battery, new front brake pads, two new tires, and lug nut caps. I was aware of the tires and was waiting to purchase those at a later date. I had purchased tires at this firestone since I have owned the car.
The employee helping me said that his records showed that the brakes had been recently replaced and had a "lifetime warranty", and seemed surprised that they needed to be replaced so soon. Due to the timing, he would only charge me for the labor to replace them. I was confused at this point as to why they needed to be replaced, if they had a "lifetime warranty", and why he would be charging me at all for unacceptable work.
The employee's mentioned new lug nut caps that seemed to becoming "stripped". I have never owned a vehicle that needed these, and I have changed one flat tire since I have owned the vehicle. Any wear and tear on the lug nut caps must have been caused by new tire installations and rotations by firestone.
I asked the employee about the engine light, and he told me that sometimes a new battery will resolve it.
So, I replaced the battery and told the employee that I would make another appointment to repair/replace the additional items found, and left.
When I got home later that day, I discovered that the tires I had asked to be rotated, had not been. The older tires were placed back on the front, and the newer tires back on the back.
On monday, 06/17/19, my engine light came on again. Apparently, the employee's theory about the battery was wrong.
Although the employees were very friendly, I am greatly disappointed by the quality of work during my last visit to firestone. I am considering seeking out and using a different retailer to purchase tires and completed mechanical work currently needed for my car. My expectations for quality service at firestone have been decreased to the point that I will not return.
