  • Horrible Service!!



    Used to take all our cars there for repairs and oil changes. About 2 years ago we quit going because the customer service was horrible. Every time we took a car in, they would always without fail find something wrong with it and would always ending up costing us more money that originally quoted. Beware! They are scam artists and crooks and rude!! We have now taken all our auto business to Dobbs in Festus and have been incredibly happy with them!! More...

  • Useless Repairs



    Acct #643913720 - I have had my 2000 Honda Civic to Firestone complete Auto care at 2075 Roswell Rd, Marietta, GA 30062-3812, (770) 325-9696, numerous times for months due to over heating. My son drives the car to and from work, 60 miles one way 5 days a week. This time, Chris, Manager, decided it was a cylinder head, I agreed since I had no idea either, and that work was done for $2,000 (just paid off the card in Mar '14 for all other work done on the car). The Honda is still over heating, I took it for a second opinion to a Mom & Pop shop in Cedartown, GA 30125 (where my son... More...

  • Tried to rip me off



    I went to firestone to get a tire patched and was told it could not be repaired then I was told that I need two new tires in the front and I also needed tire rodes. All of this was a lie. They gave me an estimate of over $900. I took the tire some where else and got it patched and had them check everything elsevand was told they were ok. I think because I am a young women they tried to take anvantage of that. Litte did they know im very fimilier with cars. I will never go to firestone again. More...

  • Rip-Off



    I have taken my 2002 Subaru Outback to Firestone, Brookfield, CT for about 5 years. I must have put about $6,000 into the car at Firestone. They kept telling me you have many more miles left on the car. So a few weeks ago I brought my car in to get motor mounts. They tell me you need a new head gasket, your anti-freeze is leaking, etc. and it would cost about $4,000. Every time I took my car there I asked for a diagnosis and now you tell me I have to put another $4,000 in the car? I've also had other problems with them in the past. Bottom line, I traded in my car and bought a new... More...

  • Oil change



    I went to firestone on Reistertown road and horrile experience. The next day my car would not start. On getting oil change there is a checklist the tech is suppose to follow through and check your battery and so on (which everything on that checklist was checked off OK) I end up having to get a jump which i found out my coolant was just about dry. I made it to a different firestone who then rechecked out the care only to find out i needed a new battery and a serptine belt. So had my battery been checked from the check list and coolant level was checked i would not have had the problems i... More...

  • Worst rip off ever



    Went in to have my tires checked because of some vibrations. The agent I met told me it would cost 21.99 to checked for issues and run a full diagnoses on it. I also asked him if they will take out the $21.99 if they fixed the issue, I thought he said yes, but later learned that he said no. So few minutes later the agent came back and said I needed a new tire and also alignment, and I asked if they checked the brake rotor I asked them to checked in the first place if I was paying the 21.99, and he gave me excuses and excuses on how he can't check that because they have to take the pads...

  • REPLACING TPMS



    I would like to recognize Danny Mateo, manager at the Firestone by the Ridgmar Mall in Fort Worth, TX for his superior customer service. My TMPS on my Ford Expedition was showing up as a fault sensor. I took in to Firestone to have it checked out and was told by Danny that the sensor was being held in place by clear tape and didn't find the belt that should have been there from the beginning. I advised Danny that the Firestone on Cherry Lane had put new tires and was never made aware of the missing belt. Danny took responsibility and started looking for this belt, which could only be...

  • Check engine light one



    Went to the Firestone on 121 in the Colony. My check engine light was on and I was concerned because it was the weekend. Check engine light on and was told they could run a diagnostic test. This would find out where the problem was. After waiting an hour was told my car need a major tune-up with new spark plugs and the fuel injection system need to be cleaned and also filter needed to be changed. I told the mechanic I just had the spark plugs replaced at the dealership 6,000 miles ago. He would not back down. Called to make sure the plugs were replaced and they were. The manager was...

  • firestone customer service



    I just want to let someone know about one of your workers by the name of Anna Marie Mattox.I visited her store today, and am always amazed by the way she handles people and also her job. She can talk to customers, answer phone, and use computer, and never miss a beat or let u feel neglected. Before I moved to savannah I went to tires plus in Lakeland florida. Didn't know what to expect from firestone, but tried them due to location. She took such good care of me, I sing her praises all the time. Today she blew my socks off with the way she handled irate customers. She is always... More...

  • Bad brake job twice!



    This review has been resolved or replied to by this company. I own a 05' Chevy trail blazer, Took it to Firestone on hwy 6 to get the brakes done, they turned the rotors saying they had their best guy that day and I was lucky to get his service! Even after I said I would be happy to get new rotors. So I figured as per his recommendation to save a few bucks and let them turn the rotors all seemed ok when I left 20K miles later if was metal to metal again. I took it back asked if they installed GM parts they said they did. After listening to one of their service hands tell me "20K is a lot of miles for brakes", funny I got 85k out of... More...

  • Firestone Poor Customer Service



    I have Kia Sorento 2011. Few weeks ago I start hearing the noise when I applied breaks. I took my car for inspection, tire rotation, and oil change to one of the Firestore locations (16802 I-45 South, The Woodlands, TX 77384). Before dropping my car off at that place, I stopped and asked if they can drive me back home, and one of the front office guys said "Yes, we can drive you back home". So few days later I am dropping my car off, knowing that they will take me home, and I was surprised when I heard from the other person "No, we cant take you home. We cant leave the site.... More...

  • Scam



    FireStone Auto told me that in order to diagnose Engine light, it takes about 3-4 hrs and will cost me $99 for it. They diagnosed the issue(Replace vapor canister) and fixed the issue within 1hr. Great Right??? Absolutely SCAM. I told about this incident to my colleagues at work and they told me that we can get electronic diagnostic for free at Auto Zone, NAPA, Pepboys,...I don't know who much replacing a vap canister will be at other places but I bet it's not going to be $400. My final bill was $500($99 for diagnostic $400 for replacing vap canister). I know that I got... More...

my daughter went to the nearby firestone store on hwy 55 for a $30 inspection, that ended up costing her $179.
she was told in order to 'pass' inspection she 'needed' 2 belts.
i called up management asking why was she told she had to do this in order to pass inspection when its clearly not on the north carolina required inspection check list? he said, because its up to the mechanics 'interpretation' as to it being a 'vehicle safety issue'. and apparently, coincidental im sure, because everyone in the filled waiting room that day was there for what they though was just an inspection they were now looking at a much pricier 'safety vehicle issue' repair work.

what a scam to prey on people because the shop needs customers with high dollar repair work NOT $30 inspections.
so buyer beware, don't take ur car to firestone unless ur ready to deal with a trumped up repair bill.

I have been a loyal Firestone customer for 20 plus years. Although after my recent experiences with the Roseville, Ca location, I will never go back. Today, had a nail in the tire, turned out to be 2. One that caused the leak, one that did not. They tried to tell me that it couldn't be repaired and that I needed to buy a new tire. These were three month old tires that I bought from Firestone! Funny, when I said that I wasn't buying a new tire, they were able to repair it...The "upselling" at this location is terrible, talk about purposely trying to rip off their customers. Firestone credit card is cut up, I am tried of being ripped off.

A Big Thank You from the bottom of our hearts...

The guys on Nagadoches Rd. in San Antonio saved the day.

My family and I were on a trip to Six Flags when our 2005 Jeep Cherokee broke down on Loop 1604

Needless to say, this put a damper on the day and our children were quite upset that our trip may have to be delayed or cancelled.

Armando and his team set up a tow, quickly diagnosed the problem and found that we had to have a timing belt and pulley replaced.

Amazingly they got us in and repaired and back on our trip within an hour and a half!

They turned our kids frowns upside down..

Big Smiles and Thank You for Saving the Day.

I have been going to firestone for 30 years, never before have I seen the lengths of deciet and lies that I have as of late.DO NOT GET ANY OF THEIR LIFETIME BULLSHIT THEY WILL NOT HONOR IT. Everytime I went there the manager and workers are diferent, kinda like car dealers you can only keep the ones who screw people real good there a little while then you have to move them to a new store to service the customers there REAL GOOD,I recently had an estimate for $1400.00, the parts are marked up 300% this is NO LIE, they charged me $210.00 for a brake rotor, the MOST EXPENSIVE one in ANY auto parts store was $76.00. UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE MAJORLY SCREWED STAY AWAY FROM THESE THIEVES , I DONT KNOW HOW THEY SLEEP AT NIGHT.

I went to a Firestone location in NC for a coolant flush and inspection. They told me that everything was fine. About 1000 miles later, my radiator cracks and coolant went everywhere. I had to take it to a good year in Missouri to get a replacement. How in the heck can Firestone not see any indication of a crack when it replaced my radiator??

I called on 8/12/12 to have my ruck looked at, got some woman on the phone who was very rude and would not answer any of my questions. The only thing see was worried about was the 79.00 to check out. Took to Pep Boys and they had it fixed in less than 1 hour. Both were on the West side of Ft.Worth off of Camp Bowie West. Pep Boys even took off the 44.00 to check out on their machine Very friendly people explained everything and even gave me 10 precent off for Miltary service. Stay away from Firestone all they want is your money. Thanks to Jake and Jerry at Pep Boys for doing a good job and alot cheaper.

Firestone replaced my left inner tie rod. I noticed that the rubber boot had a split in the middle. Is it supposed to be like that.I asked the firestone rep and he said,"they come like that".Now that boot is leaking power steering fluid. The mechanics i took it to said it was supposed to be a sealed boot and not an open boot .Thanks Firestone for giving me a leaking rack and pinion and giving me a split rubber bellowsalong with hundreds of dollars in repairs.thats the last time me or my family are going to firestone!

The Service Center on west Broadway, Council Bluffs,Iowa doesn't like their safety protocol. They have signs up telling everyone going into their service area "must" wear safety glasses. Everyone there except one employee doesn't wear their safety glasses.Doesn't look like someone is doing their job for Firestone.

My auto recently failed an emissions inspection so I took it to Firestone for an assessment. They told me I needed a new sensor and cadillac converter for $1100. I spoke with my brother who said if I ordered the parts, he would install free-of-charge. The parts costs me $300. After removing the old cadillac converter, my brother told me there was nothing wrong with it; it was the sensor that was bad. I do not plan on using Firestone again for future mechanical repairs.

We took our 1997 Mercury Mountaineer to Firestone service center at 14089 New Halls Ferry Rd. for brakes, we were told that we needed a left front hub assembly. This is a two wheel drive Mountaineer and has no hub assembly. I knew that and anyone putting brakes on would see that while installing brakes. We were told that it would cost $333.40 to have repaired .I had the service person put brakes on and no other repair. After the brake repair I was told of the hub issue again, that tells me that Firestone is willing to over charge knowing after doing repairs to the brake system that it had no hub. I have a copy of the recommended service paper. I took the same Mercury to Dobbs Service Center to see what they would tell me, I was told what I knew, I needed my bearing repacked or replace seal and bearing at a cost of between $60.00-$100.00 .This is a fact,only four wheel and front wheel drive vehiciles have hubs.

I e-mailed (COMPLAINTS.COM_FORM_MAIL_67514# wrote :Tracking number FT20050319_0000000023 Reference #1004312
Tracking number: FT20050319_0000000023
Reference #1004312)

I was told to take my vehicle to another Firestone service center 530 N highway 67 to have it inspected to see if my truck was rear or four wheel drive.It was inspected by service tech. and vehicle had no hub. I later was told that it was a computer error.I filed a complaint with the Attorney General of Missouri.Complaint#cf2005-06209.It is clear to me and anyone this was a ripoff waiting to happen.I know better,I would bet you others were ripoff big time. My wife took the truck in and you know what happens to ladies trying to get service.This was not a computer error this was misleading and not being honest.Contact me and I will tell it all Dewey

I was told I needed a COMPLETE brake overhaul by them for $648. My brake pads would need replacing as well as my rotors turned and I needed calipers. Well, I had another mechanic look at it and was told that after 59,000 miles on these pads, I have not use 50% of them. As a matter of fact, the other mechanic said that I did not need any of those repairs.
I called Firestone back and the store manager Bill said that the guy was new and that he did overcharge me for the labor and upon looking at the estimate my brakes where okay. However, I still need the rotors and calipers.
I had a similiar issue with Tire Plus...they are owned by the same people. I will never give Firestone another dime.

A good frien of mine took her Jeep into the Watsonville Firestone store for a squeking belt. $1400 dollars later they charged her $600 for a re-manufactured AC compressor that one could purchase new for $300, $100 for a $30 dryer, and triple the price for the idler pully. And they never replaced the squeking belt. Never do business from them.

When I applied for my Firestone Credit Card my Daughter was made an authorized user. The reason for this action being taken was because I am housebound and 99 years old.
My Daughter does the shopping, car care, paying bills, and all other business transactions for me due to my inability to write or see or hear in my advanced age, she is typing this for me as I dictate. I thank heaven for her everyday, I would be in a senior citizens center or worse if it were not for my daughter.
Today when she went to pick up my car from having repairs in one of the local Firestone locations your credit department denied my credit card because I was not in the store.
It was explained at the time of application that my daughter would be the one bringing the car in for repairs.

I am tempted to cancel my credit card with your company and begin using a reputable company for futher repairs and all other maintainence on my automobile in the future.
Due to being housebound it is necessary for my daughter to continue caring for my business affairs. What will it take to have her added as an authorized user short of my having to be transported with my wheelchair, IV stand, oxygen tank, and hospital bed to the local Firestone store?

I did A/C service after doing diagnostic tests (Costed about 180 dollars). Then they said i had to change hoses and I did, total cost came around 400 dollars. After one week again my AC didnt work. Then I took it there and they said I need to change another hose. This time they said I have to spent 300 dollars. THen i realized that they are not good mechanics and one more thing is they would attract with "FIRESTONE CREDIT CARD". Dont apply those credit cards, it will suck u.

I had a repair done on my old car in LR AR. They tried to sell me $2,000 worth of work on a car that is worth $800 on a good day. They are crooks. They charged me $21.00 for the inspection to look for things that I did not ask for, did not want and did not need. In addition, I asked for the parts they took off it and they gave me some run around answer, but not the parts. I felt that I wa charged too much money. I think they are crooks who take advantage of anyone they can and God help a single woman.
