PepBoys Auto - New Parts Switched - Paid For Munroe Shocks, Got KYB Tallahassee, Fl , Florida
That was enough to back me off for a while until I researched it. After getting back from vacation, I took my vehicle to Suntires in Tallahassee today ( JUne 29, 2011) where they removed the KYB shocks and put on Monroe Shocks as requested. I also recieved a written witness statement from Suntire that the shocks they took off my car were KYB. The assistant manager at Suntire told me he didnt think KYB was a 'sister' company to Munroe. He then called his part supplier to confirm and the part supplier told him absolutely not.
My specific compaint was that I bought and paid for Munroe Shocks and did not recieve Monroe Shocks. And, Pepboys refused to fix the problem and instead offered me a flimsy sister company excuse. I believe this is a deceptive practice, if not criminal. I would advise people avoid Pepboys, at least in Tallahassee. I am in the process of filing a claim in small claims court in Leon County Florida and will also write a letter to the State Attorney in the event there are other complaints like this on file.
