In September of 2010 I purchased four tires from a Sears Auto Center. The installation went fine and the service was great (at least I thought so at the time). Fast forward to January 2012…I have now had the tires on my Lexus IS250 for 15 months. I drive in to a Sears Auto Center in Chicago to have a flat repaired. The technician reviews the information they have for my car in their system and proceeds to tell me that the Auto Center that innitally installed these tires put the wrong size tires on my car.
He proceeds to tell me that I have to replace them immediatly because it may cause damage to the car and may even be unsafe to drive. The sales associate tells me that they will replace the tires at a minimal cost to me since it was their mistake. This story changes and I am then told that I need to “drive back to Indiana” to have this issue resolved. Concerned that I am driving an unsafe car due to the wrong size tires being installed I tell tehm to replace the tires with the correct size thinking that I will simply call their corporate office for resollution. Simple enough, right??? Wrong.
After four weeks of being put through a ridiculously complicated complaint process I am stuck with a $600 bill for replacing tires due to their error. I had been a Sears customer for nearly 20 years. This rellationship is now over. It’s no wonder why this company has been performing as badly as it has been.
