I went to Mr. Tire recently to have some tires mounted. It is a retail chain company, maybe national, but certainly regional.
Looking thru the window from the waiting room, I could see they had finished the work, but never lowered the truck down on the lift. After waiting for 45 minutes, I asked what the delay was. Finally, the service writer called me over to show me a Huge laundry list of items the tech listed as suggested repairs. All belts, radiator hoses,, wiper blades, transmission flush, etc.
It was nothing more than a ploy to get sucker customers to bite the bullet and have them do un-needed or un-neccessary repairs. I was never asked if I wanted this “inspection” at a tire shop. I was PISSED OFF, and have never gone back to this company.. It is not fair to hold your car hostage up on a lift while they try to drum up additional business, and make you wait while they do it.
