Went to get new tires on the pickup truck, and while that was being done, they called to inform us that 3 ball joints needed to be replaced, brake pads were down to 1 cm , and I think they said tie rods were bad. They wanted $1700.00 to have it all done, on top of the $1000.00 for the tires for a whopping total of $2700.00!
I said are you fricking kidding me? I don't think so!!! We took it to our regular mechanic, and just got a call from our mechanic and told us everything is tight, no problems with ball joints or tie rods, and there is still 50% left on brake pads. He said there is no reason to do these services at this time.
We gladly gave the mechanic $20.00 to look it over. We will never bring our vehicles to Tires Plus again, and we will tell all our friends and family our recent experience with them as well. I thank God for our honest mechanic that we almost always bring our vehicles to. The only reason we didn't is we needed tires, and he doesn't do tires.
I hope their company goes under some day for being such dishonest people. Unbelievable!!
I want to call and complain, but I know it will go on deaf ears, so why bother. I'll just spread the word and tell people our personal experience instead.
