Canadian Tire Store
Exhorbitant Auto repair Quote
I went in for brake inspection for my 1994 Plymouth Voyager in Canadian Tire Auto service center at 1019, Sheppard Ave. E in Willowdale, Ontario and was charged @22.59. After an hour wait the auto service adviser told me it will cost $955.25 to repair the breaks and he said I had to replace the front brake calipers, rotors, shoes and rear brake pads and turn the drums, flush the system. He did not give me written estimate but when I questioned him to do so he reluctantly printed out his estimate. I bought all the parts and changed the front brake calipers, drum and the pads for $100 by calling a mechanic listed in Craigslist. Cost of parts was $189.00. When both the rear wheels were examined there was no wear and they looked as new. So I returned the unused parts and got credit. When I went to the store to find out why they quoted for the work that was not required all they could say was that particular mechanic and service adviser were on duty and I am free to file this complaint. My advise to all customers of Canadian Tire store is to be beware of all their auto quotes and do get a second opinion before you throw your money away.
