Complaint Review: Tire Kingdom
Tire Kingdom Store #146 PRICE GOUGING AND POOR SERVICE!!! Orange Park, Florida
*General Comment: me43 here
I left and went back to the store. They said my rear brakes and all 4 of my rotors must be replaced. Their price for brakes was about 80 percent higher than any auto zone, pep boys, o'reilly's around. Then their rotors were at least 300 percent gouged in price! they were charging me $247.10 for just TWO rear rotors.
I told them I was not expecting to pay NEARLY that much. They said it was not safe to drive out of the shop, so I finally made it affordable by telling them to leave the front two brakes/rotors alone.
Here is the final cost of the items (I drive a 2007 Dodge Charger 2.7L):
Labor: 119.99 (1 hour)
Still reeling from the cost, I finally was able to get out of there and wouldn't you know it, my brakes SQUEAKED!
I cannot say it enough, STAY AWAY! This place looks to exploit a person's lack of automotive knowledge and make extreme profits. They force services upon you and their deals are just ways to get you in there and take over your wallet!
I called the store numerous times to ask prices and each time they gave me a different price for brakes (79.99, 89.99, 132.99, etc) and rotors. They didn't even put a part number down for the rotors so now I cant use my invoice to check on the price of the part.
I am furious at the cost and the quality of service and I will be making sure I tell everyone to steer clear of TIRE KINGDOM!
