ok this may not be the right spot for this rant.
but, Brown Subaru in Charlottesville VA has bent me over the table. they claim "free tires for life" of course that is with regularly scheduled maintenance. they aren't worried too much about oil changes and what not, just the big ones like 15k 30k and what not. well i am at 41k, i get them to do all my maintenance, oil changes, everything 1. i don't have the tools 2. i am a lazy ass.
well i was driving down the road last night and hear this sound like a stick was caught under the car so i stop and check it out. turns out the inside tire walls, 3 out of the 4 tires, were literally shredding and breaking off. so i manage to get to subaru today to get my tires changed and oil change.
i talk to the manager, he looks at my tires and says it as because of my alignment. he goes and checks my history, turns out, THEY NEVER ALIGNED MY CAR!!! not once. so for 41k miles i have had the factory/showroom alignment. the $200+ i would spent for full work over at 15k and 30k they never did.
now i am out 400 bucks ATLEAST for new tires, god knows what else they never did but charged me for. can't wait for the next thing to break.
