Harlan, Iowa
Not resolved

I went in for a routine tire balancing. Everything seemed to go ok, but when I came back to pick up my car, the tech had the hood up, air intake and cabin filter boxes open.

WHAT BUSINESS DOES A TIRE TECH HAVE UNDER MY HOOD, AND WHY ARE THEY TAKING THINGS APART? The air box was improperly put back together (again, the tech was clueless) and caused it to slam against the front of the radiator. It broke a hole in the radiator and caused a HUGE COOLANT LEAK. My car was without fault before I brought it to these imbeciles, and now I have permanent damage to my engine because of overheating issues.

Read the fine print on the contract before you give these people your keys, because apparently, you are authorizing them to perform services they are unqualified to administer. This is unfair that someone else gets to ruin my nice automobile.


Monetary Loss: $300.

What cost $300? Was it the tire balance or the permanent engine damage?

How and when did the car overheat? Was the huge coolant leak not apparent at the shop?

Most people wonder why their hood is up even if the 25point inspection is requested to be skipped. This allows shops to get your exact engine size to properly serve the vehicles individual specs.
