WALMARTS COUNTRY WIDE SUCK – Recently I took my 06 SUV in for an oil change where they charged me for 7 qts of synthetic oil…my truck holds only 6….so I paid them not realizing at the time I could not trust them…a month and half pass and my vehicle starts making a fluttering noise that sounded like I got some cheap gas –so I ran the tank out and filled up again at a different place than I usually do but the noise still didn’t subside…so on Jan 30 ’11 I popped into Advance Auto parts just to check and see if I needed oil….it didn’t not leak nor have I ever seen it burn oil (my truck is always garaged so I would notice a leak of any kind)…well much to my surprise I see a dry dip stick so I run in and by a qt of oil and add it to my truck….wait 10 min and check the stick again…still nothing dry as a bone…..I go back into the store and buy another qt and put it in and finally get a reading….the mgr of this store was standing outside watching me do this and commented to me about where I have my oil changed and I told him Walmart….he said he has heard this many times from other folks too….
Well so I get back in the car and drive home and the sound seems to have gotten softer and I am hoping I t was not damaged beyond making this fluttering noise – I am a once a week driver…I drive only back and forth to work and to do errands and shopping on weekends so never go anywhere long distance. About a week goes by and I hear the noise again so decide to take to my mechanic…he looks at it and says it is a rod and I must replace the engine which costs upward of $5000----so I am stuplified and shocked that being 2 qts low should cause such damage especially since all my gauges showed normal readings….and the car has never been over heated under any circumstance…
I was in disbelief so I took the car to another walmat and their auto mgr looked at it from top to bottom told me the blue goop they put on the plug was undisturbed and I did not have an oil leak or leak of any kind…he then listened to the fluttering and he too thought it was a rod. He recommended I file a claim with the Walmart where I had the oil change so I did this on Monday and on Wed when I hadn’t hear from them I called their claims ctr and they told me they had no claim for me so I called the mgr who had come out to take my claim on Monday he said he would call me before noon today to let me know what had been done. I have not heard from these people. I am a single person and I need my transportation…I work and I was in the midst of trying to find a new place to live –but I can’t get walmart to talk to me long enuf to get a rental car or to agree on what course of action to take..so tonite I tried calling Walmart Mgmt again and another mgr in the store named Brian got on the phone and basically said I don’t have a leg to stand on and that the 2 qts of oil I added to the car on the 30th probably damaged my car not Walmart….I have to say I am dumbfounded….I wish this to happen to his Mother and to his daughter and wife then we will see what this cold robot has to say then. This is just par for the course of life –uncaring, unfeeling, careless people – now they know they are at fault as they inspected the car … no oil leaks, no one had done anything to the car except them and me. They said cuz I added the oil to the engine I tampered with it….if I hadn’t added the oil and blew the engine up so it stopped running then I would be at fault too because I didn’t do everything I could to stop further damage. I AM BOYCOTTING WALMART FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE—I HOPE I CAN SWAY MORE FOLKS TO STOP PATRONIZING THIS HORRIBLE WORTHLESS PLACE WHO TAKE, TAKE AND TAKE SOME MORE-- BUT NEVER DO THE RIGHT THING BY ANYONE --THEIR EMPLOYEES, THEIR CUSTOMERS, ETC. I HAVE SINCE READ ONLINE AND THERE ARE 1000’s WITH THE SAME STORY.
Walmart's Greatness – Prices are the best in town. Wish they'd bring back their crafts section but they have more bridal, clothing, People can support their Mom andPop stores who don't have to worry about money.
Staff is friendly!
HORRIIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!!!! – THIS IS FOR THE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO GET THEIR OIL CHANGED @ WALMART. THIS PLACE HAS PUT ME THROUGH HELL SINCE MY OIL CHANGE ON MARCH 20TH. MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON ABOUT A WEEK OR SO LATER, MY CAR WAS OVERHEATING NOT STARTING. BASICALLY MY 2005 HONDA ACCORD WHICH DOESNT EVEN HAVE 60,000 MILES ON IT IS ALL SCREWED UP JUST CAUSE OF AN OIL CHANGE. i BROUGHT MY CAR TO AUTO ZONE TO GET THE DIAGNOSTICS OF MHY MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS ON AND THEY DISCOVERED THAT I NEEDED AN ECT 2 SENSOR WHICH IS USED FOR KEEPING YOUR CAR FROM OVERHEATING. ON TOP OF THAT THEY LOOKED IN MY ANTI-FREEZE JUG AND SAW BLUE FLUID AND IT WAS WINDSHIELD FLUID IN THEIR! SO IF YOUR NOT AWARE OF WHAT THAT MEANS IT MEANS THAT ITS LIKE GIVING SOMEONE THE WRONG MEDICATION AND THEIR ALLERGIC AND THEY COULD EITHER PASS AWAY OR THEY WILL HAVE ALOT OF PROBLEMS. IT WENT THROUGHOUT MY WHOLE SYSTEM OF MY CAR. I WENT TO WALMART AND THEY TREATED ME LIKE A PIECE OF YOU KNOW WHAT AND BASICALLY SAID IT WAS MY FAULT. ITS COMMON SENSE WHERE WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID AND ANTI-FREEZE GOES. IF YOU DINT KNOW YOU SHOULDNT BE UNDER THE HOOD OF A CAR PERIOD! I THEN GOT MY WHOLE SYSTAM FLUSHED OUT I HAVE PICTURES AND ALSO IN A POLAND SPRING BOTTLE I HAD FILLED IT UP WITH THE FLUIDS THAT CAME OUT WHICH WAS PURE BLUE!! NOW, IF THEIR WAS ANY ANTI-FREEZE IN MY SYSTEM @ ALL IN THAT BOTTLE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN CLOUDY. COMMON SENSE RIGHT? BEFORE I FILLED MY CLAIM I WENT TO HONDA WERE I PURCHAED MY CAR TO MAKE SURE THEIR WAS NO ADDITIONAL DAMAGE TO MY CAR AND OF COURSE THEIR WAS. HONDA HAD STATED IT WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT WALMARTS DOING NOT MINE. THEY DETECTED THAT MY HARNESS CONNECTED TO MY ECT 2 SENSOR WAS CORROTED ALL DO TO THIS!! I THEN WENT DOWNTOWN TO FILE A CLAIM FOR COURT CAUSE I KNEW IN MY HEART THEY WERE GONNA BLAME ME. SO I FINALLY DID MY CLAIM THROUGH WALMART AND FOR ONE THEY WERE EXSTREMELY RUDE AND A WEEK OR TWO GOES BY AND THE INSURANCE GUY CALLS ME AND TELLS ME BECAUSE OF "THE VIDEO" THEY LOOKED @ DOESNT SHOW THEM PUTTING ANYTHING INTO MY ANTI-FREEZE JUG. BUT THE FUNNY THING IS THAT ON MY RECEIPT IT SAYS ANTI-FREEZEE FILLED NOW THATS STRANGE CAUSE LIKE I SAID EARLIER ABOUT THE BOTTLE WITH THE FLUID. SOOOO MY GRAND TOTAL OF DAMAGES TO MY CAR ARE $1,000!!! AND THEY THINK I HAVE TO PAY? NO IM NOT GOING ANYWHERE IM GOING TO COURT CONTACTED THE BETTER BUSINESS BURUE, CONSUMER AFFAIRS AND THE NY STATE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE. THEY WILL NOT GET AWAY WITH THIS. SO JUST TO FORWARN YOU DO NOT GO THERE AND PLEASE PASS THIS ON SO NO 1 ELSE GETS THE SAME SERVICE THAT I DID. AND IF U DO AND THAT HAPPENS JUST DO EVERYTHING I JUST SAID AND DONT EVER STOP FIGHTING! AND JUST FOR THE RECORD I HAD TO PUT A RATING ON THEIR OR ELSE THIS COULDNT BE PUBLISHED SO THE RATING IS NOTHING!!!
