I have used Firestone for years for repair work and they have done a good job. But not the last time. I brought my car in to get a belt replace in advance of a long drive to relocate to California. Firestone replaced the belt in question and I made the trip to CA only to have the entire lining around the wheel rip apart damaging my breaking system. I took the car to a repair shop nearby and they discovered that when Firestone took the wheel compartment lining apart they did not put it back together. They further discovered that the belt that they had replaced was still in the engine compartment loose and had lodged itself inside my engine fan.
I talked to the general manager in New Orleans and he offered to fix the job but unfortunately I am permanently located to San Diego. He told me to talk to Firestone in San Diego, which I did, and they refused to address the problem. $150 of repairs results in $1000 of damage. I have not had the extra money to fix it yet so my breaks leak fluid and my car wheel compartment has no lining so my Camry sounds like a harley going down the street turning heads. Firestone does not stand by their botched jobs on a national level. Buyer beware.
