Mr Tire Lied about oil change which ruined my engine, charged me for rotors and work done without my consent. Mount Airy, Maryland

Had gone to Mr tire back in December of 2010 for an Oil change/tire  rotation. Dropped off my car and later got a call saying I needed to have my rotors replaced, they lied to me and said I needed new rotors because the ones on it were too rusted through to machine down. I declined and wanted the original service done.

They charged me for new rotors and calipers without my consent. Being frustrated and with their refusal to take the charges off, I reluctantly paid. About a month later, my engine froze up on 70-w just leaving Frederick. Had to get it towed, and had a mechanic look at it.

 Apparently they NEVER changed the oil, it was the same oil from the previous oil change which had gunked up the ports inside my engine causing the pistons to seize up. Completely ruined my engine which only had 9x,xxx miles on it. Had to buy a new one.

On a separate event, I bought a tire from here. Not even a year later, it popped while driving home. I called about it and they denied anything they had previously told me about a warranty on the tire. The tire had blown out through the sidewall.

Didn't know about this place until now, I figured I should warn people about the Mount Airy Mr Tire.
Since my experiences, I've learned a great deal more about cars in order to prevent having to deal with these shady business practices.
