  • tires and overall rewview



    Came to Firestone about 2 months ago for the first time, i thought great love them. Then the came time for me to go back and get two tires 05/11/2014. First they talked me into getting a tire that was more expensive than the ones that i originally wanted. They would have to order them in and it was a big story of how much better the more expensive tires would be for me, so i gave in and had them put on. So i go in to have an oil change on 06/29/2014 and they ask me if i want a courtesy inspection while my oil change is being done so i said yes why not. When i go back to pick up my car... More...

  • Firestone excellent walk-in service



    So this Sunday morning at 6AM, an hour from home, my truck died. AAA towed it to the nearest service center that was open, Firestone in Norwich, CT. By the time we got there it was 9:10, just after opening. The staff was polite, professional and courteous, but wanted to charge me an hour ($105) labor for 'diagnostic'. I was over a barrel, knew I was getting ripped off, but I had no choice. They started working on my truck about 10:15, not bad for a walk-in on Sunday morning. Just before 11:00 the mechanic comes in with the worst possible news: the engine is seized. He... More...

  • $40 to Plug a Nail Hole!



    As we are new in town my wife went to the closest place to have a nail pulled from her tire and plugged. Firestone was the store and her service included re-balancing, the plug, sensor, and labor, all for $42.00. Are you kidding me; a simple tire plug costing half as much as most tires?! The labor was listed at $22.00 alone. Firestone has lost my business from the git-go; and they owe me $20.00 bucks. More...

  • Tires



    Every-time I go there they say they don't have time to fix a simple flat tire and that I have to leave my car over night.Their service in the past few years has gone downhill and I will not be returning and letting all my friends and family know off this horrible customer service.They don't care you have a flat in the cold just so they can get off in time. I will be canceling my credit card with them. More...

  • Car heater not working



    Couple of days when winter started, I realized my car(Honda pilot2004) had a problem with heater as i was getting only cold air from front vents. So I went to Firestone, jersey city. First they charged me $60.00 for inspection and they told me they have to flush coolant and reverse clean and flush heater core which cost $300 but they were not sure if it will solve the problem or not. So I paid $60 and took the car to one of my friend who is a mechanic. Guess what, he replaced heater valve(FSA74647) and charge me only $60. Thank you Firestone for an honest opinion and am not sorry to say... More...

  • Don't waste your time or money



    This is ABSOLUTELY the LAST time Firestone touches one of our cars. Some history: 3 years ago my car wouldn't start and it was towed to our neighborhood Firestone 1st thing on a Monday morning. By mid-day no call from them. Husband calls later in day and they say I had driven with no oil and now need a new engine. Had driven the car all day the day before with no problems, no check service lights, oil pressure lights/gauges ok, no over heating.... Husband tells them to tow car back to our home and we will decide. They bring back NEXT DAY and all the parts were THROWN on the floor of... More...

  • Firestone broke my car



    I brought my car to Firestone to fix the coolant leak. but the service person said he could not get the hood open. When trying to open the hood the service person damage the hood release. I have been able to open the without any problems, until bring it to Firestone. The service person told me they had to open the hood by taking off the bumper, which was strange since all they had to do is remove 2 bolts and the hood would open. The service person told me he would need to install a new hood release wire. As for the coolant leak, I was told it would need a new radiator and a new cap for... More...

  • Firestone on Colorado Blvd, Denver CO



    Got four new tires and waited about 7 hours to have them put on. After receiving my vehicle and returned home I heard a hissing sound coming from one tire. It had been mounted wrong and was losing air. I returned back and got the tire remounted. I returned home. The next day my wife said that her car was shaking when she drove on the interstate. She took it to the Mercedes dealership thinking she needed an alignment. They told her the tires were never balanced. Guess what, I'm back for the third time. I have wasted a total of 12 hours of my time in this place for 4 new tires. Not happy More...

  • Crooks



    Took my car in because it needed a power steering pump replaced. They replaced it, but they installed it incorrectly, and their incorrect installation of course isn't covered by the warranty. So I had to take it in again because the pump was leaking about a quart of fluid a day, and they tell me in order to correct the problem they need to charge me $300 because they need to take the power steering pump out again to get to the line they botched up in the first place. They're crooks. Intentionally botching a job so they can "fix" it and charge you again. More...

  • Bull Sh*t repair's



    I took my car in for the free rotation and a flat repair since tires where bought there. I was told a stud and nut were missing on the rear tire. (lug nut and stud to hold tire on) I was then told they could fix it for 83.00 while I waited. Being somewhat mechanically inclined, I told them no and figured I would do it myself for less money. I left and checked the stud myself. It wasn't missing at all. The lug nut was missing but the stud was fine, threads and all. I went to Auto Zone and bought a new lug nut and put it on for 2.49. I have bought several sets of tires from... More...

  • Firestone - Car Service



    My wife and I were having car troubles. We decided to go with Firestone on Murphy Rd for oil change and tune-up. Jose Hernandez and staff were friendly and professional. We left the store to fill up for gas on the way home. All of a sudden the car would not start. We immediately called Jose at the store which was almost closing time. Our insurance has road side assistance so we had to wait almost 30 minutes for services per operator from dispatch. Jose went above and beyond by not only offering to stay after hours, but if in the case that we needed him, he would come out to where... More...

  • NEVER AGAIN.



    I took my car to the Lakewood Firestone a few weeks ago for a simple oil change. I get a call from them saying that a number of things are wrong including that the timing belt needed to be replaced. I told them to go ahead and do it because I didn't want to have any issues with my car. Before I took my car in, it ran just fine. After they replaced the timing belt, it started making a new noise. So I took it back a few days later and they said they would check it out. I will say they were kind enough to look at it again and not charge me for the inspection. But, now the car squeaks...

  • Firestone:oil change



    I am VERY disappointed at the service I received. On my 3,000 mile return visit, I was told that "oil was leaking from somewhere." They wanted to charge me $41 to even CHECK to see where the leak was coming from. I opted to take it to a mechanic instead. The "leak" was happening because they made a careless mistake: they didn't change the O ring. Needless to say, I won't be back and will discourage people from using their services. I guess there's a reason their specialty is tires, not oil. More...

  • Warranty A Waiste of Money



    Paid extra for the tire warranty and service. At time of purchase many promises were issues and the service clearly states that Firestone will fix or replace tires if there is a leak or other problem. At two different Firestone garages [Bolling AFB & Andrews AFB] I was put off for other "paying now" costumers multiple times; They must of thought I was not paying attention. It was so bad that even after they took my car in I saw the guy that was assigned to my car working on other cars while I waited. The first time they had my car in they stated that they could not find a... More...

    I went to firestone on june 4th because my car kept shutting off and it was jerking, they estimated that it would cost me 1,500,00 to fix everything that is recommended to have my car run smoothly, they even gave me a 12 month guarantee but now here it is July 14 and I have already been back to them 4 times. On my 4th visit to them, I mentioned that my car was still shutting off and i was told by the worker who wrote down all of my car symptoms that I never ever told him about my car ever shutting off. He argued with me the whole time and even said to me that I was lieing. I was humiliated... More...

Complete Rip Off!
I took my car to have an inspection for the fuse box. Guess what? They cut my battery cable without my consent and say 'cable is corroded badly and it needs to be replaced'. WTF!!! I asked you to inspect my fuse box issue. Why would you CUT the cable? just tell me what the problem is. I end up paying 300$ for replacing the battery cable (which is 1 feet long), and a small burnt fuse in the fuse box worth $5.00

Seriously!, $110 per hour labor??? what a rip off. I wish you go bankrupt and close down your business.

Firestone autocare is a disaster. Never go to Firstone. They cheat and rob in broad day light.

Took my car for inspection, they said that the battery need to replaced. After few days, the car did not start, performed a jump start and the car started.

Fun part here, took the car to the Honda dealership, they did some checkups and said the baterey is fine and need not be replaced.

Questions arising in my mind, regaring the inegrity of Firestone.

Firestone is a rip off! I took my car in for a tire repair and was told that the hole was too big to be fixed. I was told that I would have to purchase a new tire for my car even though I had a warranty on my 7 month old tires purchase from the same store. On top of having to purchase a new tire, I was told that the tires that I had was discontinued, therefore; I would have to purchase a diffent tire which would make my tires mismatch. I took my car to SAMS auto shop for a second opinion and was able to get my tire repaired for FREE (because I am a member) and they told me that the hole in my tire was really small! Firestone lied to me and for that I will never shop their again....NEVER!

I got a nail in the tire of my rental car. The rental company told me to take my car to Firestone to replace the tire. I went during my lunch hour. The lady told me it would take 30 minutes for them to see my car and then the job would take 20 minutes. So I went ahead decided to wait it out. I got to the tire shop at 12:10pm I didn't leave till 3:00pm!! She kept telling me that my car would be seen soon. I didnt have someone to pick me up and take me back to work. And I wasnt about to wait an hour already and then just leave with out getting my tire fixed, to only come back and wait even longer! Their turn around time to get things done sucks! Every single customer that walked in after me were just as upset as I was about the wait time. There wasn't even enough room for us all to sit. Some of us had to stand. I will never ever recommend or go back to Firestone. My first and final experience with them.

I have a set of tires purchased @Firestone with the road hazard warranty........ so why is it when I have a flat they won't repair the tire or offer a prorated one ? They tell me my two rear tires are both shot so I ask what is the roard hazard for if you won't fix it? He tells me "We have the right to refuse fixing it cuz if u go out and have a blow out then we maybe liable.My anger is that he would not honor the warranty,then tells me I could get two new tires for 148.00 and wanted me to open up a charge account with no job when I say I don't have the $ !!! Don't ever do business with the Firestone in Duncanville, Tx On Camp Wisdom @ Main St.

I needed a battery for my car. I was told it would they could work on it immediately. After an hour of waiting, I inquired about my car. They didn't have a battery and were calling around for one. I could of gone somewhere else and had it done in the time it was taking for them to look for one. Thanks for being honest. Jerks. Never go there again.

First off firestone is too expensive for all of there maintnence. But my Godmom had a memembership card there. I get my tires done sunday so I could drive far that night. First of all they suck at superior customer service. No hi,hello,how are you,be with you in a moment etc. Thats strike 2 for me & then they rush to do my tires within like 25minutes because they were closing in like an hour. If they can't have time management they should not have walk ins. However,i drive to concord later that night from fairfield to find that i have a flat tire! The tire i just got done 4 hours ago raveled up. I didnt bump,hit,or roll over anything while driving im a pretty cautious driver. I came the next day mad because the tire was so bad rolled around the hub cap i could have got into a bad car accident! I came to them the problem,showed them a picture and they tried to ignore and deny the situation when i walked. And they fixed it for free with an attitude.
