Firestone Complete Auto Care Charged for an alignment I did not need Canal Winchester Ohio
On September 7, 2013, I took my car to a Firestone store for an alignment. After the service was supposedly completed, I paid for the service and went on my way. As I drove home I noticed that nothing felt different, and after further inspection of the paperwork that had been given to me, I noticed that the ‘before’ and ‘after’ alignments had little to no difference between the two (steering wheel might have been straightened by .01 degree).
I was upset and took my car to another Firestone store to find out more about what had been done to fix my alignment. As I had suspected, nothing had been done. My alignment is off by a few degrees, but it is within factory specifications, so nothing could be done without more parts and more money.
I do not understand why I was charged $96 for something that is typically done for free! I went in for an alignment, and if I did not need an alignment, then I should not have been charged for one! Furthermore, the ‘courtesy check’ that had supposedly been completed on my vehicle had actually not been completed at all. Numbers were written down, and boxes were checked, but not because my car had been inspected. If the worker had truly checked my car, he would have noticed that I had a leak in one of my tires, and by doing that would have fixed the issue and received payment that was rightly due.
It is hard to believe that a company that I have trusted with my car for so long has ripped me off. I am appalled by this type of treatment. I am a recent college graduate with student loans to pay back. I cannot afford to pay such a large amount for something that I did not need. I would like my $96.40 refunded.
