Mavis Discount Tirecorrupt business

J Review updated:

I purchased a hyundai sonata about 2 1/2 years ago. I have never had anyone at the dealership tell me anything serious, or try to con me into buying anything. I had a slight leak in my front left tire (driver side). I took it to Mavis Discount Tire Center on Larkfield Road in East Northport. The guy told me that I needed a new tire b/c the nail was close to the side. This was not a tear and two other guys from other dealerships told me they could plug it. I took it to Walmart and got it plugged. The nail was the size of half of a thumbtack. The guys at Mavis are extremely corrupt and I would never buy their crappy tires that they tried to sell me. I called the guy and told him about the tire and he said that the other mechanics weren't doing me any favors b/c it would likely tear. I have 25, 000 miles on my car and I would rather get a few more thousand miles out of the tire if I could. The hell with Mavis. I'm not just going to throw it away and get a new tire when I can get more mileage out of it in the meantime while it is plugged.

    So sounds like we will see you siting on the side of the road changing your flat tire because you chose not to get a new one

    This Mavis Tire in East Northport is pathetic. I went in there for two rear tires and they told me it would be about an hour. I went to the pizza place next door for lunch and came back and they had the car up on a lift trying to upsell me everything from brakes to alignments. They had even taken the front wheels off and had the hood open. No reason for them to have taken this all apart to put rear tires on the vehicle. Then I had to wait around for them to put everything back together. Do not support this company/business. They are terrible.

    My muffler was getting loud, on my 2009 Toyota Tacoma so I stopped In to Mavis in Auburn NY. to check out where the noise was coming from. There assistant manager comes out and tells me that I need both manifolds. Both catalytic converter, and o2 sensors. $2600.00 worth of parts and labor. Needless to say I took it to Midas, the manager there tells me that the muffler has a hole on it the size of a quarter. $260.00 later I was on my way. Then when I went back to confront the assistant manager he didnt want to hear it. He insisted that the leak was coming from the manifolds. Totally trying to to rip me off!!
