[Canadian Tire] coupon to save a little bit on labour at Canadian Tire Auto Service

So if you find yourself and your car at Canadian Tire Auto Service (yes, your regular mechanic is on vacation), here's a coupon to save $10 off $100, $20 off $200 or $30 off $300 of Auto Service labour. It's better than nothing, and it's much better than getting Canadian Tire money, which is about 0.5%. (That's $0.50 per $100.00)

The coupon can be found in the back section of the Canadian Tire Driver magazine, which can be found at Canadian Tire stores near the Auto Service area.

Here's text on the coupon:

SAVE $10-30

You'll save more monies in the long run by not getting your car serviced there

Would avoid.

A long time ago, I thought I could trust CT for a simple tire swap. Would never trust them touching anything under the hood. Only shop open on Sunday which is when I was free. Got the car back and felt like I was driving on wooden blocks. Turns out the idiots filled the tires up to 60psi.

Gotta agree with the majority. Would avoid.

Had my tires changed there and had the mechanics add unnecessary charges to try and swindle me.

My tire experience with CT has been good and great price.

Yes, you can go to tire chain like kal tire or ok tire. They both charge way too much for what I am getting. CT has been good to me for new tires.

I had a winter-to-summer tire change done there. 30 driving minutes later on my way to work, the front left wheel COMES OFF in rush hour traffic. I had a few seconds warning as the bolts started to go SNAP one by one, just in time to veer off to the side. My front wheel goes shooting off down the road, and the only thing that keeps it from slamming into an oncoming car is the fact that I veered away at the last second. The CAA guy who eventually comes and loads me up on a flatbed and takes me back to Crappy Tire just laughs at the dweebs they had working there, saying "look at these %@#$ing kids...this is why that happened!!". The store manager tries to say this had nothing to do with them, until I start playing hardball and they pay for all damages and restoration work.

They could have killed someone with their blatant incompetence. Never, ever, EVER again...

Went in to change my brakes at Canadian Tire a few years ago, after a week they started to fail. They tried to get me to pay extra to fix it. Scam artists.

I've had some pretty bad experiences at GTA Canadian Tires, including my transmission literally blowing up and locking into what I can only describe as "direct drive" with the engine... the same day after a simple transmission check (including fluid check) at a Canadian Tire store... This all happened on a 400 series highway while doing "average fast lane" speed (heh) so it was quite the pucker factor for a few moments there.

I had it towed back to my real mechanic who was able to find out Canadian Tire didn't do a single thing, nor did they even attempt to check the tranny fluid level. Took the findings back to the store and after some pointless discussion with the GM the owner arrived... Needless to say they ended up paying all the costs to replace the transmission, fix the engine and undercarriage- at a shop of my choosing. Thankfully I know a mechanic who specializes in racing transmissions- my mustang transmission is bulletproof now, and worth more than the whole car.

On the flip side of the coin, I was hours outside the GTA once and my alternator failed- bad. Managed to limp into a rural Canadian Tire and they not only took care of the issue, they gave me a huge discount on the alternator (50% off retail cost), free tune up and free loaner vehicle for two days. They did all this because I had to wait for the alternator to be delivered (it was Sat afternoon when I arrived). This place had a few older mechanics who were very experienced and knew their stuff. It was one of those stores where it was so old the floors were painted wooden planks, there were pulleys attached to the ceiling at various places, and there was no such thing as wheelchair accessibility between the floors (or aisles) in the store or even the entrance to the store.

Basically Canadian Tire is a last resort for me if I am far away and rural. Otherwise I'm getting myself towed back to my mechanic. Yay for CAA premiere service.

I wouldn't even trust them to put air in my tires. Had a bad experience with CT many years ago in the mid 80's when I got my first vehicle. Never again.

If they gave coupons to stay away from CT, that would be hot! STAY AWAY!

CT has a great business model: 99% of techs are kids doing CO-OP terms and paid minimal wage. CT charges going rate for labour = max profit. Would not go if they offered free labor.

Stay away from CT at all costs. Even if they pay you to service the vehicle.
Past experiances include; buying 4 tires installed and 1 tire is a different size and not tightening the oil drain screw ( engine almost blew).

Good or bad, sometimes you have no other choice. CT is the only shop open Sundays and late evenings. Thanks OP
