so i take my buick in for an alignment last week. i noticed it was off, so i take it back monday. the guy tells me theres no way to take care of it today, were full. well, ok.
so i go back today. the mgr comes to me after the mech inspects the alighment. he says the mech said i need to replace 3 tires to fix the problem, bc my abnormal tread wear is causing the car to pull to the right
. so i ask to see the specs. he shows me the #'*. the right rear is off by -38 deg.
, so i say, well that 38 deg isnt the cause for my car pulling to the right? he says that the rear will not make the car pull. and also that theres no room for adjustment in the back. i call the bs flag and inform him that the rear tie rods are less than 5k miles old and surely DO have adjustment.
he goes to ask the mechanic about the adjustment. the mechanic says that the nut was "frozen" and thats why theres no room for adjustment.he also said that the inner and outer tierods need to be replaced.
i told the mgr that that was ridiculous, all he has to do is heat it up. the mgr says that thats not part of the alignment and would have to charge me for breaking it loose. he said that if i can get it loose, then bring it back, and they'll take care of it. EFFF that. thats the last straw. im never going to belle tire again.
I HATE Belle tire. they are crooks.
i just dont understand, if i pay for a 4 wheel allignment, then i should get a 4
wheel alignment. not a 3 wheel! WTF? how are they in business with practices like that?
-Wes, not actually sam, thats just a joke.
