DONT do ANYTHING at Crappy Tire, they'll mess up your car bad.

I'm sure most of us have bad experiences there, I sure did, and so did MTRD.

They wont neccessarily mess up your wheels, but they'll break something in your car so you have to come back.. I talked to a guy who used to work there (enio?) he even told me that.

yeah they will pull out your vaccum hoses, drain your oil, loosen your wheel bolts, etc etc just to make sure you come back for another repair/service. Maybe not that bad, but I'm sure many people here can fill you in on the horrors. Talk to Enio...

Canadian Tire did on oil change for me and drailed my oil but didn't put any fresh oil back in. I ran my car for at least 200km without any oil, my engine had next to perfect compression before that, now its burning oil.

what are you talking about???
All I said that most cars got oil pressure light on the dashboard, and if you had no oil that day, the light would be on.

I think at the time my dad purchased the car back in '92, the more advanced computers was an option. I got the super basic one with just the temp. time and date.

Why Tempo, beause it sucks

Sorry, if you got offended, but I didn't try to dis your or anyone's car.
