Autozone They sold me the wrong Spark Plugs Memphis, Tennessee

*Consumer Comment: It happens a lot

*General Comment: You took auto zones advice?!

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I went to Autozone in Attleboro, MA. to purchase spark plugs for my Porsche race car.  I was told that i needed Bosch Spark Plugs. Autozone said that they didn't have them but that their computer system said the brand "Autolite" was perfectly compatable. The sales associate even showed me the computer screen.  Long story short- on the first lap of my race, the engine blew. 

Now I need to replace the whole $40,000 engine.  I'm looking for anyone who has had the same problem with Autozone's famous computer system and if anyone has sued Autozone on a similar matter.  Thanks!

You own a Porche race car.

You took an Autozone counter guys advice for plugs.

You think you have a case for them causing and engine failure in a RACE car durring a RACE.

I just wet myself I was laughing at you so hard.

I don't change my plug brand for my Street Stock Scca auto crosser!
