Mr. Lube Canada - damaged my transmission

My experience was VERY NEGATIVE at this Mr. Lube location. I have been to other Mr. Lubes in the past and they have all provided quality service, so I have nothing against the chain. The manager at this Mr. Lube in particular treated me very unfairly and I am very dissatisfied. I went in for an oil change and the mechanic pushed me to change my transmission...

Mr. Lube Canada - incompetent

Calgary South Walmart. Incompetent. They installed the wrong weights on my wheels. Nearly all of them flew off on the highway. Employees unkempt and scruffy. Manager extremely rude. Maybe they should stick to oil changes; monkeys couldn't screw that up?

Mr. Lube Canada - locked keys in car

My husband and I bought our car for an oil change-they locked our keys in the car-we were in the midst of ordering breakfast at Smitty's-my husband got a call to go there, leaving me eating alone and not knowing till later that they had locked our keys in the car. It took 30-40 mins and it ruined our morning. Furthermore, no compensation was given, we paid full price for the oil change. Unacceptable customer service.

Mr. Lube Canada - shoddy workmanship; untrained staff

Dear Sir or Madam:
During the latter part of March 2015, I took over the ownership of a 2010 Chrysler Sebring sedan formerly owned by Garret Palmer.
The car had recently been serviced at the Mr. Lube #17 on 16th avenue in Calgary. The oil light reset was done according to the work order at 68513 km. The oil change light came on at 69461.

Living in Didsbury, I took the vehicle to my local Fountain Tire store to have the oil changed. This resulted in a bill for
$66.26 only to be told by Mr. Palmer that the oil had been changed last month. It is evident that the oil change light had not been reset properly as the work order indicated.

Furthermore, I discovered that the air filter case had been broken and this was not documented on the work order dated March 3, 2015. This means that one of your "technicians" damaged the case and did not report it. The work order states that the air filter "appears OK".

In addition, recently my daughter had her Chev Malibu serviced at this establishment, only to be contacted later that a "technician" had forgotten to replace her battery cover. Because of this oversight, I wonder what else might have been "forgotten".

I believe that the $10.00 gift certificate would not cover the errors done by your staff.
I will be contacting you in person to discuss these issues.

John Visser

Mr. Lube Canada - transmission fluid

I went to Mr Lube at the Westbrook Walmart in Calgary for an oil change and to put 2 new tires on. The goon there, Gary, never did anything to my car until I came back after 4 hours. I was then told I needed a new cabin filter, a new air filter, new transmission fluid and an oil change. I was held hostage by these jerks until I agreed to get everything...

Mr. Lube Canada - rip off during oil change

I was ripped off for a oil change. Totally rude attitude and inexperienced workers make the oil change an ordeal. With out my consent they drained my antifreeze viper liquid with wash liquid. This endangered my life on highway as the windshield froze with the soap. When I went and complained the workers were rude to me and they told me they expected customers to change oil every 2 weeks. Why would they do this disservice when somebody changes oil end of September. It gets cold shortly after that. Is this in the interest of customers? What is the point of draining out the existing antifreeze viper liquid. I request all the sane people to never deal with these criminals. They deserve to be in jail. I'm willing to join a group of people to sue this company.

Mr. Lube Canada - overcharging

Beware!!! These guys overprice and suckered me into buying a filter claiming it will save on fuel. Here's the problem: they charged me 85$ plus tax and I called another mr lube in kitchener on weber st, and they quoted the exact same filter for about 35$ installed. So I email, the general manager to explain this drastic price difference and of course no...

Mr. Lube Canada - ripped off, bad service

My son followed me down for an oil change on a 2002 F150. The tech came out and we requested the $44.99 standard oil change. I left and he came back with a bill for $184.00 bill. He is an 18 year old student and they up sold him to a premium $59.99 oil upgrade and a $7.00 filter upgrade. Then they told him that the oil filter and fuel filter look original. $92.00 for a fuel filter. I changed it less than 10, 000 KM ago. The truck has 160K and gets serviced regularly.
I lost it and went back. They would not admit that anything was done wrong.
I'm so pissed that they ripped off a kid.
I will never go back except to meet the Manager. That won't be a good sight.
Scammers. Karma's a ###!

Mr. Lube Canada - service

I normally service my cars at Mr.Lube. Mr.Lube has 3 lots and people wait with their cars in Queue and they service First come First serve basis Lot by Lot. My second last service I was waiting in Bay # 1, when Station Manager came and asked to shift to Bay # 3 (I was not choosing that Line, as there was an RV doing service inside). Assuming that RV will finish soon, I obeyed his instruction. I waited there for about 1.30 hours, and 2 sets of cars gone inside from Line 1 and 2. Now let me talk about my last time experience. I was waiting in Bay # 3 behind 2 cars and after 40 min I reach first. Unfortunately, Bay 1 and 2 got delayed. The same Manger came to me and asked to move behind and wait behind 3 cars, so that they can bring the other cars inside. I asked him, what about last time I was waiting here for long and you never showed any consideration to me. He told me, this is our rule, First come First serve... But truth is that, its not... If its First come First Serve, they should be asking us to wait in 1 queue and take cars to any Bay when the bay is free, like other service centres do.. We are visiting Lube express to get our service done fast, and who has time to spend the whole day there.. if the Manage might have made request telling the problem he faced in Bay 1 and 2, I might have moved my car without any argument. Here he told its there rule... Anyway, I have taken my car to Eastside Doge and done my service for $55 where Mr.Lube might have charged more... I took only 30 min total in Eastside and they told me they are doing the same way Mr.Lube is doing is you bring your car to Express service lane... Mr.Lube is not going to loose anything if I stopped servicing there, but I can stop few of my friends who is doing service at Mr.Lube.

I went to this Mr Lube for "approved warranty service" on my 2010 Smart Car.
They changed the oil, but didn't check the tires, or fill the fluids as they state in their advertising.
They DIDN'T know how to reset the service required indicator.
I still had to pay the full price of $99 !
I was told to come back & someone would do it.
Upon my return, the individual who supposedly knew how, wasnt there.
No one ever contacted me to follow up
I complained to the owner by telephone & months later still haven't received any service to the indicator or a partial refund on the services NOT performed !
AVOID this Mr. Lube !

Mr. Lube Canada - broken transmission

Contrary to advice from friends and the fact that I was going to be pushed timewise to do this myself, which I normally do, in May of 2009 I went to get an engine oil change from Mr. Lube for my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Whilst I was there I saw that they offered transmission oil change. Since I wanted to do this soon myself, I thought I could kill two...

Mr. Lube Canada - vehicle damaged

In September of 2009 I had taken my 2009 Grand Caravan to the aforementioned Mr.Lube for a quick oil change. I don't usually go to Mr. Lube and had been warned about them by mechanics who are relatives as well as other mechanics. I figured "It's just an oil change... how can anyone screw that up?" Shortly after leaving my engine light came on. I pulled over...

Mr. Lube Canada - fraudulent sales practices

My complaint is somewhat generic, given that many businesses and individuals working in the "quick-oil change and car maintenance industry" have reputations for "milking" the customer and manipulating people who have little knowledge of automobiles. I have a friend who worked for this company years back and even he spoke of more than one story when he...

Mr. Lube Canada - engine failure - claim denial

On July 3rd 2009 I took my 2005 Honda Civic (42000 kms) for an oil change to MR.LUBE. As part of their inspection they removed the air filter. It appeared OK as per their report and the filter was re-installed. The service technician was a teenager, just a kid. Two weeks later my engine failed on July 17th 2009. The vehicle was taken to a Honda Dealership...

Mr. Lube Canada - inept service technicians

I brought our van in last fall for an oil change and when we got it home a few days later, I noticed a couple of drops of oil on the floor. It's never leaked a day in it's life so I got the wife to bring it back to the Shop(MacLeod Trl. Calgary) who said everything was just fine. I got an oil warning light yesterday and the engine started making a loud...

Mr. Lube Canada - damage to my car

I went to Mr Lube for an oil change for my girfriend's car. During the oil change they recommended that my serpentine belt be replaced. I looked at the belt myself and found no cracking or anything so I turned down the belt replacement. The next day my girlfriend tried to start the car and it wouldn't turn over.

Mr. Lube Canada - held hostage sell sell sell

When I rarely go to an oil change place, I want to go in, get my oil change and leave. In the past it normally takes 10-15 minutes to do so. I've tried a number of oil change chains here in Canada over the last 20 years and they've consistently provided 10-15 minute service.

Mr. Lube Canada - mr lube is like fast food not good for you or your car!

Had an oil change on a 1994 Chev van, they put on an dodge filter that blew off on my way to work it was a stormy day the van came to a stop real fast in the middle of an highway. I paid someone to pick me up and drive me home I phoned for an tow truck we then went into town put the Right filter and oil the van would not start not even from tow truck they told me motor was cooked and towed me home. I did not give up I live in country with nothing to drive, I worked in the cold with heath complications I got it to run again for how long your guess is as good as mine. I then touch base with the store manger in Guelph. He checked out my story and found I was not making it up. He asked me what would make me happy, I told him to get paid for the day of hell I had. He said I will give you your next oil change free Well! He told me that the filter for the dodge will work for the Chev he must think I am stupid thats Ok I now think that Mr Lube is like fast food not good for you or your car.

I used Mr Lube service at the Guelph location to regular oil change in my SUV. Next day there were oily spots on the garage floor under the car, and the oil level was 1cm above upper limit, also 2 covers
(oil filter and drain bold) were missing. I had returned to the store; after my complain they re-install covers (forgotten to install after oil changed) and corrected the oil level, but this was not very pleasant experience. First of all, they lied about putting new covers from their stock (installed old ones, originally from my car, dirty covers), finally didn't want to give a new receipt for the service provided.
It was my first and last time visit MR Lube shop. No recommended.

I went to the Guelph Ontario location...
These guys are vultures looking for any weakness of perception or knowledge to exploit in the customer. They were helpful, especially since I am a big guy and have decent car knowledge... BUT They said my cabin air filter was too dirty and needed to be changed, my fluids were dirty and needed to be changed, that it looked like a needed a full tune up... This was 3 months after I bought the car at my dealership dumped 2 grand into the car with a 200 point inspection. When I pointed out that my dealership JUST checked all this stuff they backed off and tried another grifter approach. For the 20 minutes I was there, they pushed 5 or 6 unnecessary repairs on me, saying my car needed it. I am never returning to ANY Mr. Lube location!

I have only ever had possitive experiences at this Mr. Lube location! They keep my car in fantastic running shape and they have educated me greatly on my vehicle and it's maintenance needs. I would not trust any other shop with my family's vehicles! Just one question though...how is fast food bad for your car?
