Paint damage

Today. Mr. Lube, Arbutus at W 12 ave. Attendant decided to rub his greasy fingerprints off my hood with a gritty greasy rag, as I watched in disbelief. His coworker came over to 'help' and rubbed it with another dirty rag, spreading the damage further. Then used a dry (ie: gritty) paper towel to do even more damage. Then they tried to force the plastic engine cover on incorrectly, warping it. They did absolutely no other inspection, like the other franchisees do, and tried to charge me $124. They refused to give me a proper invoice. The attendant then told me to f-off as I drove away. I was later assisted by calling another location to contact head office.

Swindled my son out of money

I had the worst experience at Mr Lube at the Calgary Bow Trail SW location.

I was teaching my 16 year old son how to get his oil changed. When we drove in, I explained to the tenant that we only wanted the standard oil change for $60. Nothing extra today. He said that was no problem, but of course he had to go through all the up sell services they offer.
My son politely said no to everything when I was asked to get out of the passenger side so they could check the cabin air filter. When I was out of ear shot, they had tricked my son in to going with an $20 engine flush, as he didnt know there was an upcharge and the guy said it like it was included. Imagine our surprise with the bill. I asked to have the Manager call me, and over a month later I havent heard a thing. This is the type of behaviour that cost them years of business from not only my family but all my sons new friends that are just getting their licenses. This was a disgusting experience and I cannot recommend more that you reconsider going to another business for service.

Took my 2007 Honda Accord into the Mr. Lube at Speers Rd. and Dorval Dr. in Oakville, Ontario today for an oil change and to have my winter tires put on. Oil change went fine, but when the guy was finished changing the tires on the passenger side he let my car drop roughly (with me in it), then continued onto the other side. When I drove away, my car was reading as though no oil change had been done, and my car was wobbling horribly and pulling badly to the right. I brought it back immediately. They reset the oil reading, (hopefully they actually did the change) but said there was nothing they could do about my car wobbling and pulling (which only started after the change, my car was fine before), so I should drive it across town to another Mr Lube location.
With my car pulling and shaking, I drove to the location they suggested at 234 Hays blvd, where I waited for 5 minutes for anyone to even acknowledge I was there. Eventually some clearly stoned guy named Jazz emerges from the back and gives me a blank stare (no hello, how may I help you, nothing) and I explain the issue. He takes my key, then goes outside for a smoke. Half an hour later, he comes back to me and says that they refuse to look at my car, because it had already been looked at by a different location (THAT SENT ME TO THEM) and that was that.

Never going here again!!

My family has been a customer for over ten years..not sure if they got new management or what but about 2 weeks ago I took one of my cars a Ford Focus in to have an oil change and to have summer tires put on found out they never did the oil change and they did the summer tires so everything seemed OK started driving down the road and they didn't balance them correctly started shaking the s*** out of my car I hopped out to check out what's going on and all of the lug nuts were loose!
Was offered nothing for resolve from them...

Well I thought I'd give them one more try.... shame on me!
I took my 2010 Chevy Camaro in this morning and was having the studs pulled from the tires and they broke one of my lug nut bolts!!! This is my nice car so I take pride in it!
I pay very close attention to it!
contacted staff to try to get them to do something about it and they told me that it was like that before I went there i said bs! They asked me to prove it WTF really? How about some integrity! yesterday I was going to do the labor myself because I had a bad feeling about going to them again and I went through all the lug nuts but my tire iron wasn't the right size so I stopped..

I will never trust wasilla Mr lube with my property or investments ever again!

Transmission oil

I had gone to Mr.lube to change transmission oil and when my car was ready the same night I started having problems. When I took my car back they said there is nothing they could do. When I broke down they said it was my fault and not theirs when I have a qualified mechanic who confirms that it is in fact their fault and not mine. I have complained over 3 times and they didn't say anything and sent me back. When I took it back they reflushed the oil and sent me back. Now my car doesn't even move and my business is affected due to this and loosing over 1000$ a day. I am loosing my customers and the dealerships cause of this. These guys need to fix it or else I'll have to take matters to the court and make sure everyone knows that they ruined my vehicle.

Useless checks and upselling

Mr. Lube insists on trying to sell me unnecessary services from their unqualified technicians. All under the guise of free courtesy checks. Previously they told me I needed a new battery for $150. Mechanics from 2 other places said no, the battery was fine. The other day I asked for only the oil and filter change. Rather than just accept that they asked me why and when I insisted, they proceeded to not only do other checks, but tried to sell me additional transmission 'services'. With this business model and their unwillingness to cooperate with the customer I'm staying away from them.from now on.

damaged my car

So I had an oil change at mr Lube 9120 Westminster Hwy and I thought everything went well as normal however they forgot to put the oil cap on and a few days later I noticed a burning smell and quickly found the issue and returned to store to have them clean it up and replace cap and they told me that they filled the oil up at no charge and about 2 weeks later I also got my rad flushed and once again they told me everything was good so a few weeks after that I hear some weird sound and found that my oil was very low and had to add 3.5 l and this caused major damage to my engine I now know I should be checking their work to make sure but isn’t that what I pay them for ?

After returning to me lube and talking to the manager and I explained what happen and he told me that my car burns oil and it was everything else but not them I replied with ok let’s do a test we can do an oil change and wait the same mileage which was 6000 km approx. and see if the oil is noticeably low since my card doesn’t leak which was a big no from him and he offered me 50% off on my next oil change

Since then I have filed a 6000 dollar claim in small claims court and going to slam them on social media

Mr. Lube

I went in for a tire repair and quoted $40 and if the tire is not repairable then the inspection is $15. The manager comes back and said the tire is very close to the edge but he will fix it for me. He then push for transmission oil change etc. I finally agreed for an air filter for $34.99 which cost around $20. The final bill is $15 for tire inspection, $40 for tire repair and 34.99 for air filter. Plus taxes the finally is $101 for a tire repair and an air filter with a part number doesn't match the correct stock number ! Would you go back to Mr. lube ever again ?
