Firestone History

Harvey Samuel Firestone founded the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company  in 1900 to supply rubber tires to wagons and buggies.

Harvey Firestone had a personal friendship with Henry Ford. Ford saw the potential market for tires for automobiles and Firestone tires were chosen to be the original supplier of new and replacement tires for the Ford Motor Company.

In 1998 Firestone was bought by Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd, a Japanese company that was founded in 1931 by Shojiro Ishibashi, for $2.6 billion.

Firestone was renamed Bridgestone/Firestone, Inc in the United States and is the largest subsidiary of Bridgestone.

The company was again renamed and is now called Bridgestone Americas (BSAM).

Today Firestone has 40,000 employees.

I took my car to Firestone in Vicksburg, MS to get a routine oil change at about 7:45 AM last Wednesday and left it. I asked the guy who got my information will they check my transmission fluid, antifreeze, power steering fluid and every thing else and he said “yes”, that comes with the oil change. I also asked him if they would rotate my tires and he said “yes”. (I had bought the tires from them back in May). I called around lunch time to check if car was ready and was told that it was. About ten minute later I got a call from one of their other service men stating my car was ready. I got there and paid them the $40.00 for the high mileage oil change, didn’t notice that my tires weren’t rotated until I got home that evening and they were closed. Saturday I went to Wal-Mart about ten miles away from my house and parked and smelled something like a radiator was running hot, but thought it was coming from another car. On the way to Wal-Mart my windshield wiper fluid dinged letting me know it was low. Bought some of that out of Wal-Mart. Got home to put windshield washer fluid in and something told me to check my antifreeze. I went to turn the radiator cap and it just came off. I didn’t have to press down and turn, it literally just came off. I had to go to auto zone and buy more and ended up putting almost the entire container in my radiator. I looked down at the oil filter and it had not been changed. It was still the old oil filter from my previous oil change with them and it was not just dirty from oily fingers, it was worn. I do not know if my vehicle got an oil change or not. Called Firestone and got a guy named Nathan. I told him everything that I had experienced with the car. He asked me how I knew the tires were not rotated. I told him that I knew because the tires with the brake dust were still on the front. My back tires had no brake dust on them. He told me the only way I could know is if I had them “marked”. I don’t know anything about marking tires and why would anyone mark them unless they did not trust their servicing shop? I told him about the oil filter. He told me that I had gotten the oil changed three days ago and that is should look that way. Now I don’t know a lot about cars, but I know my car. I didn’t even have a new oil mileage sticker on the inside of my windshield. I will not be taking my car back to Firestone for any reason. The service at this Firestone was awful.

To whom this may concern,

My name is Delinda McCoy and I want to be heard! I need everyone to be aware of the service that your store has given me. I have been a loyal customer since 2003 when I was stationed in Virginia with the US Navy. I have trusted my services completed by firestone for two vehicles. I was advised to contact you again to see what can be done. This is my second letter to you all on this same subject. I came to your Union City Store in May to have my timing belt done. I had received another quote from Honda and Patrick stated that he would put his best guy on the job. He stated that he would order all parts that day and I needed to come in at 7 am. I explained that I would have to wait and they explained it would be 6 hours. I got there at 7 and they were not there till after 7:30 am. After getting no update on my car, At 4 I asked how much longer and I was told 2 more hours. I was till between 9:30 pm and 10. They pulled me to the back and explained that my car was making a loud noise. I explained that it wasn’t making that noise when I came in. They stated the mechanic had rechecked his work for hours and could not figure out why it was making the sound and it may be something else. I was told to drive home and bring it back tomorrow. I explained that I had a job interview so they got me a rental car. Before I left Patrick pulled me aside and told me he would make this right even if he had to take it to the Honda Dealer. After complaining to corporate I received a call from the area manager Drew stating the same information. Patrick called me later that day and said my car was ready. When I picked it up it was no longer making the sound and it was drive-able. 4 months later (two weeks ago) I had to drive to Virginia to meet a potential renter for my home that I own and when I got to Anderson SC, my car stopped working. I pulled over and had to call my insurance company to have myself and daughter towed to the nearest shop which was Piedmont Honda. They did an inspection and told me it was my timing belt. I explained that I just got it done. I had to call Firestone after Honda did a more extensive inspection and spoke with Drew again. I had Honda explain to him what they found so far, which was that the mechanic put a part in wrong and messed up my engine bad. I was told that no repairs could be done that day as they still needed to get to the bottom of the engine to see just how bad it was and they were already at $4000.00 of damage. It was Labor Day weekend. Firestone had to get me another rental that I had to wait over an hour to get as Enterprise had no vehicles. I missed my potential renter and lost money!! I now had to drive back to GA and wait on my vehicle to finish being inspected. I was called on Tuesday 8 September by Honda and they stated that aftert completing the inspection they have determined that It would be more cost effective to just get a whole Engine. I stopped by Firestone to make sure they were aware and Patrick stated that they were just waiting on a price to pay for it and that everyone is aware of what was going on. I had to call Enterprise and ask for an extension on the rental as no one else had done that and I did not want to have a vehicle not authorized. I received my next call from someone at Firestone On Sept 16 stating “ Your car is ready and has been paid for. I stated thank you, and then he stated Will you be turning in your rental today. I stated yes.” I get there to find out that firestone decided to get me a used engine with new parts. I was told a new engine so I was confused on why I was not called on this decision. No decisions were made on my car or discussed by me or been involved and I was told I needed a new engine due to the negligent of Firestone. After driving 3 hours to pick up my vehicle And finding out the decisions that were made, I took the 3 hour trip back to GA and now my Cruise Control stopped working as I went down hills. I called Honda and they were closed. Let a message and they called back and stated that I would have to bring the car back 3 hours at my inconvience to them in order to see what is going on. I was told by Firestone that the best person is completing my job, I was told my car was fixed the second time, I was left stuck on the side of the road with daughter, and I have lost money all for trying to be proactive on maintenance work and trusting a company as they kept explaining to me that they could do the work. It is posted on my paperwork that Firestone put in part wrong and caused the problem. I understand you got me a rental and paid for repairs as that is the LEAST your company had to do as it could have been much more tragic. If your company was unsure if the job could be done they should have just said it instead of taking my money and wasting my time which is valuable to me and obviously not to your company. Now I have to be inconvience once again, take off work again and now be pushed off onto Honda as I am their problem because Firestone has already paid for their parts (used). But let’s just remind everyone that the loyal customer is still responsible for paying for a service that I did not get on my Firestone card!!!! I need someone to call me and explain how they plan on fixing this now!!! I am truly afraid that more is going to go wrong with my car. I just want to be convienced just once in this whole ordeal and treated as you would want your veterans and loyal customers should be treated. JUST ONCE!

I was on my way from Maryland to Tennessee on vacation with my family of 5 in our minivan. We broke down with a flat at 615 am on Sunday August 9, 2015 in Virginia on route 66. I put on the donut spare and with the van loaded up the tire was looking very stressed. We finally did find a Firestone opening at 9 am in Harrisburg Virginia, and showed up at opening. There were others with appointments and as it turned out the tire was beyond repair so I bought 2 tires. We were in and out the door in no more than an hour and they even pumped up the donut to a more acceptable level. The guy working the front desk was Jason, and the experience was great considering how our trip started out.

A family member visited a Firestone Repair Center in Cobb County in the early A.M on 07/25/15 to have a F150 brakes checked and repaired. This family member was still at the center at 5 P.M. The reason given was that they put a defected part on and would have to wait until another part arrived. How does this happen?


Steve May 25, 2015 at 10:58 pm

I have been a customer at your Chapman Ave Garden Grove CA branch for years. I have finally given up on you. I have had almost every repair fail. Turn signals have been replaced several times. Keep going out. had my AC replaced and it failed three times after that, taking it back over and over. Still remained loyal.

Final straw, today, 5/25/15 I called and explained my turn signals went out for the fifth time and the guy who answered the phone said, ‘so what do you want me to do about it?’ very sarcastically, almost angry with me.. even though I was not being rude or upset, even though I had every reason to be. As a matter of fact I was very polite and friendly until then.

You have a bunch of young guys working there who haven’t grown up. Even the manager seems barely out of puberty. Get some adults working there and I may come back. I have patience where incompetence is concerned, but both incompetence and insubordination at the same time is too much to ask of anyone. Now I am pissed.


Ron Christie May 18, 2015 at 9:02 am

I have been a Firestone customer for many years and have all maintenance on my vehicles as well as my children’s vehicles completed at my local Chesapeake Va. Firestone Complete Auto Care Center. I recently scheduled an appointment to have my tires replaced and experienced less than the service I expected. I contacted the store (#590746) manager Bob Conti about the issues I had and he immediately refunded my money and scheduled me for a follow up appointment for which he offered to provide me with a rental car while my vehicle was in for service. This type of customer service is extraordinary and should be commended. Needless to say, Mr. Conti’s attitude, professionalism and superior customer service has ensured I will be a loyal Firestone customer for life.


Bob Maurer April 26, 2015 at 7:38 am

Yesterday I was at prices corner in Wilmington Delaware Firestone getting an inner and outer tie rod along with the sleeve replaced for they can do an alignment . Everything turn out fine except where are there house keeping . There were full hand grease hand prints all over the hood bumber and fenders. Don’t they were gloves any more cause this is a crapy type of job. They need to respect others property. Part of being a professional in the field is also keeping clean when doing the job. I been to dealers were they are clean about what they do . This is what brings me of going back to them cause of the service I get. It’s a shame that your employees don’t care .


Ellen Harris April 9, 2015 at 2:03 pm

First and foremost you put your trust in the name “Firestone” and the people working for this company to do their best in providing service to your vehicle. I have been trusting in Firestone since moving to Arizona in 2006, big mistake. Thank God I have not had any issues until recently, when my 2010 Equinox starting having problems. The Firestone in Gilbert Arizona told me I needed a new transmission after my car hobbled into the shop. They drop the pan and said “the fluid is black and has metal filings”… so $4200.00, two maxed credit cards later, I have a new transmission (we opted for a “new” rather than a rebuild for the warranty). Three weeks later, my car locks up and won’t move, had it towed to Firestone, where they said they dropped the pan and the fluid “is worse than before and there is metal filings” so you need a new transmission AGAIN. Because we opted for the “new” transmission, they sent my car to the dealer to have it fixed, well four days later they said “there is nothing wrong with the transmission, the car seems to be working fine and we can’t fix it unless we know what is wrong with it”. So I got it back from Firestone being told that I would just have to drive it until it happened again. So I took my car, and 30 minutes later, while driving it locked up again and wouldn’t move. Called Firestone, and they came and hooked up the computer to the car and discovered it had something to do with the brake system. So what about the fact that the first time it was towed they told me I needed ANOTHER new transmission, hmmm. Apparently all the times I had brought it in for an oil change, they were adding brake fluid (which didn’t need to be added). There was a leak in the brake system and now the master cylinder was ruined. Makes you wonder if I ever needed a new transmission to begin with!!! Oh did I mention that when I got my car back the second time, discovered they broke my key, and nobody wants to take the blame for this!! So, I’m out $4200.00 for a transmission I’m sure I never needed, two maxed credit cards, and a broken key!! Thanks for nothing Firestone I won’t be coming back and I will YELL from a mountain top to all who will listen to NEVER go to Firestone!!!

Good Afternoon,

I would like to share my experience at the Firestone Complete Auto Care in Hillside, Illinois. My boyfriend hit a curb while trying to turn which damaged my rim. Unfortunately, my car was shaking so I needed to get this taken care of immediately. The only shop that was open was this location since most places are closed on Sundays. I arrived to this location around 10 am and was speaking with Chris. I informed him of the situation and he stated it was an 4 hour wait before he would be able to look at my car. I knew I would have to walk home since this was going to be a long wait. Chris was nice enough to offer a free code to Uber so I wouldn’t have to walk home. Luckily I live up the street so it only took me 30 minutes to walk home. I received a call around 3pm to state what was wrong with my car. I was informed my control arm was bent and the rim was dented (which I was already aware of). I was told I would also need an alignment but asked if I could hold off on that until I get paid on Friday. I needed my car since this is my only means of transportation. Chris stated that was fine. Chris stated they would have to order the part but could have my car finished by 12pm tomorrow (January 5th). I was ok with that since I would have my car before I needed to go to work on Tuesday. I also asked to have my oil changed and my rear light replaced (none of which ever happened).

I had to call a cab to take my son to school and take me back home. I called the store and spoke with someone named Lily but was informed the part still had not arrived even though it was ordered the night before. I was ok with that since I was told my car would be done by 12pm. Around 11:50am I called again to check on the status of my car. I started off speaking with Chris who informed me the part still had not arrived. I was put on hold and then the phone was picked up by Lily. I informed her that my car was promised to me by 12pm and so far nothing has been done to my car. She goes on to say the part has not arrived and I would need an alignment. I informed her that I asked to hold that off until Friday when I get paid. But before I could speak another word I was RUDELY interrupted by Lily again stating they would not fix my car until I got the alignment. I told her to call me when the part arrived since I was so offended with how she spoke with me. Luckily I called other places around and found a shop to do the work without the alignment but informed if I did, it would cost $55. That was great price and I was willing to get alignment.
I called a call a cab to get my care from Firestone. When I arrived I had the unfortunate luck of meet Lily, the store manager. I waited until I was called and when I spoke with her I asked to get my car. While she was bringing up my paperwork, another customers car was just done and the keys brought to the front desk. Lily COMPLETELY stopped working on my order and took the lady who now appeared on the side of me without asking if she could ring this lady up and then help me. I have never been treated that way in my life which unfortunately I have a long way to go since I am only 27. Chris was at the register and asked if she wanted him to take the customer who just came up and she said no, take her without even looking at me. How very, very rude. Chris brought up my order and was closing out the sale when the part arrived. He checked to see if this was the part for me and it was. I stated I was willing to just have the work done since the part arrived. Chris was looking at the order and was going to try to figure out something with the alignment but Lily (even though no one was talking to her) stated, “No, she doesn’t want the alignment, so we will not work on her car.” I told Chris to just cash me out and I will take my car someone where else. I actually took my car down the street and was able to get the work done for $100 less than what Firestone was going to charge. But get this: I was informed they could not do the alignment because my rim was so badly dented there would be no purpose to do one. Well isn’t that a kicker since Lily stated my car would not be done at their shop since I would not get the alignment.
So this weekend I will be getting a new rim to replace my dent one. I will never EVER shop at another Firestone and I will make sure my family and friends will never go there even if this is the only place open. I have never been treated so rudely by a store manager. I want to say that Christopher Parks is the best associate I have ever dealt with. He tried to do many things to get my car fixed but I was so upset by Lily that I never want to go there again. Please make sure something is done for him in regards to how he works. He is very kind and answered any questions I had. He should be the store manager and NOT Lily since she is clearly lacking customer service skills. For a person who has worked in customer service all my working career, she is one of the worst I have seen.


Sara August 21, 2015 at 5:33 pm

Mercer University location in Macon, Ga, The WORST!!!! I will never ever in life go there again. And I will tell everyone I know not to go. I work at a place where they are ALWAYS looking for local shops that perform Total car care, I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND Firestone. Horrible customer service,


Kathy December 22, 2014 at 2:12 am

Firestone in Apex NC last week the customer service was absolutely awful the tiresalesman was very rude & used several degrading curse words about women. I was highly offended by the lack of professionalism

I was injured in an accident that was a result of negligence on behalf of a Firestone service station. Presently have a lawsuit against Bridgestone Americas (David A. Cardone V. Bridgestone Americas) for negligence and would be more than happy to assist.


stephanie johnson December 29, 2014 at 10:44 am

Yes,I’m interested in being a part of the class action against these unscrupolous organization.Two weeks ago I went to HoustoN Webster Tx location to get Tires for my Honda,tires… car was in immaculate engine lights,no oil leaking….firestone pressured me into having a diagnostic done. I argued with the manager that there was no need since I wasn’t complaining I needed my car repaired. I only came to get new tires,my chief complaint to firestone was my tires was bald. Firestone diagnosted my car needed an oil pan drip gasket replaced. Firestone refused to show me the so called leak, this diagnosis was very suspicious because my car had no oil leaks, no spots on my parking space,my engine had no noise….firestone pressured me into these unnecessary repairs because firestone wanted my thousand dollar voucher the state of Texas workforce solutions issued me to use to get my tires.All firestone saw was that thousand dollars, firestone formulated a plan to deceive me into believing the repair was necessary. Firestone immediately dismantled my car ,took apart my engine…only to let my car just sit for hours with no work done I brought my car on ay about 130 pm that day,I left at about 9 pm that night. I had to call 911, and get the Houston police to come over and force Firestone to put my old tires back on. Because at that point, I wanted no part of those the cops showed up and basically told me that my issue with Firestone is civil….Firestone told the cops they wanted to keep my car overnite to finish the next day. I say no way….the next day I spike with a regional manager and was put in contact with a second firestone location in Dickinson Tx, I drove my car in to have the work order completed on my car,not knowing that would be the last time my poor car would ever drive excellent again.that friday Dec 19,2014 was the day Firestone ended my cars life.Firestone replaced the drip pan oil gasket,that Friday, I began to smell oil immediately, as I drove home and throughout the weekend I called the manager , he assured me that the smoke smell will disappear. He assured me further that the oil probably dropped on the manifold and will resolve shortly. During the weekend of Dec 20,21 2014 I called the store so many times about my car wreaking of oil smell, that the tech on duty accused me of harassment. The manager Don called me from his home and told me that my car was in excellent condition, that he had personally looked at the gasket after it was repaired and personally signed off on the job done correctly. I insisted there was something wrong with my car, Don told me that he had no guys qualified to check my car out that day,only tire guys on duty. So did the tech that anwered the phone and accused me of harassment. so, Monday the next day came,my car was driving bad, I had a bad feeling in my gut. I spoke with this guy on the Firestone Presidents customer service line, the same guy that took my report initially and he issued me a case number. His name is Tom, very rude, condescending,sarcastic, not helpful insensitive.I told Tom what was happening,and that I’m going to Jiffy Lube to have my car checked out,my car was gushing out oil, said Jiffy Lube…and this was told to Firestone rep Tom by phone,while the oil was gushing out. I told Jiffy Lube what Firestone did to my car, I was advised to go back to Firestone so they can fix their mess ,I slowly inched back to Firestone. Got their, I was livid, I was pissed off at the total disregard Firestone has for my life and property. Out of retaliation, Firestone called the League city Tx police on me. Accused me of robbing the place,according to the officers that came out. I explained what condition my car is in at the hands of Firestone, and I was no robber….this was about 3pm….Firestone took my car under the bay at 330pm,I have video on my phone proof. Firestone put on the receipt my check in time was 530pm and check out time was 637pm….huge liars, I left at about 715 pm, I have proof on my phone video of the tech finishing and backing out my car . So, that was the second replacement of the gasket, the tech stated the first time, was not installed correctly. This tech was name David,he stated the gasket was not bolted in the correct way….the entire time, the manager, knew I was going out of state to visit family. David the tech stated, I’m good to go out of state, so did Don, the manager, both looked at my car and drive my car. So, I hit the road,get on I 10 east, my car quit on me in Baton Rouge Louisiana on the Mississippi River bridge, a gigantic dangerous bridge. My car just quits,in the pouring rain,my car starts rolling back down the bridge. I put on my emergency blinkers. I came within inches of a tractor trailer plowing into the back of me. Another alert driver noticed,I was in distress and car conking out as I was trying to go up that steep bridge, as I was rolling backwards, the driver got behind me. Stopped me from rolling into a tractor trailer and pushed my car up the bridge. To safety on the exit on the shoulder halfway to the foot of the bridge. …the pushed me into AutoZone, got it checked by the manager there,my car had oil in it….it was still cutting off….i called Don, the manager back in Houston Firestone store, he told me he would send a wrecker to take my car to Firestone Baton Rouge, was a lye,…i call back repeated ….Don refused to answer, the man at auto zone said that my car had oil in it, I decided to keep on going,I was in a town I knew nothing about a single woman traveling alone….plus Don, lyed about the tow truck, and so did the guy Tom on the Firestone presidents line on Monday. I didn’t trust their word, Firestone damaged my car and are refusing to be accountable for their actions. During my trip to out of state, I was obly able to drive 50 mph in the pouring rain, tornadoes weather conditions that were occuring on the gulf coast that weekend…I was speaking with a rep from name Mr McCleeson, for about an hour explained how Firestone had damaged my car. McCleeson had stated he would take responsibility and have my car fixed,I told him I wanted Honda to fix what needed fixing and wanted no more part of firestone because of the gross incompetence and malicious negligence….Mc Cleeson told me he would call me within an hour,never got a call from him. So I called back to corporate in Illinois, the receptionists, promised he was working on getting help for my situation. All lies,I got a call from a Dallas Tx manager named Mr Holton, he was rude,belittling,insulting to me as well.Houlton stated to me that he was not interested in hearing my 3 hour story about how my car was damaged. I kept asking Holton whether he was calling in behalf of McCleeson to arrange and coordinate my car being repaired. Holton stated no,that he got all sorts of emails about me. I explained to that snake that I’m traveling 50 mph on I- 10 in the pouring rain….I got a Mr Rahonen from Illinois by phone on Saturday,told him the about Firestone damaging my car and my car not drives me.Rahonen is a liar, he advised me to have my car taken to a shop for evaluation,and get the estimate of repairs and damages to him so a claim can be filed. My car needs a new engine according to Honda, the drip pan gasket is leaking…I didn’t need Hinda to tell me my car was damaged related to the drip pan gasket Firestone replaced….TWO times,…..any idiot can see firestone is incompetent and needs congressional investigation for crimes against consumer,including,deceptive practices,Texas workforce voucher fraud,failing to make repairs according to their work order, dismantling consumers cars in efforts to pressure work to be done, practicing,and engaging in discriminating against women in relation to servicing vehicles…. I’m starting a petition to gather signatures for congress to investigate these snakes, a lawsuit is not enough. The feds need to look into their company on corruption charges, these are not isolated incidences, it’s too many of these to be isolated. This is company wide systemic,institutionalized depriving consumers,and specific to me,women of our federal consumer protections and ultimately connctitutional rights…..these snakes ate continually lying about making good on my car being repaired. Firestone have proven to be bullies, Firestones actions almost got me killed on I-10 in Baton Rouge Louisiana somebody at Firestone needs to be arrested.


Pam January 2, 2015 at 11:16 am

I just had my car towed back home – went to Firestone for engine light on, they “fixed” it – and 1200 miles later (11/25/14 – 12/31/14) I now have a seized engine. Honda Element with only 96,000 miles on it should not have gone bad.


Mr In Disbelief February 17, 2015 at 9:04 pm

So, at what stage is this move for action to date? I too would like to get my car fixed since the online C/S will not forward my simple request to Corporate as to obtain a name, phone number or email address to directly speak to the local Corporate Service Manager to explain how and who stole new replaced parts then replacing with used and damaged unsafe! I won’t even let my wife or daughter drive the vehicle still. 2 months since I started this now and still can’t get the information for speaking with them first. Current company policies for contact was explained as follows… “Give us your contact info, the store location and what happened with your complaint in detail. Then they email 4-5 people internally. Corporate? However many upper management are required or needs to see the case along with whomever will address or contact the store. And finally the store manager gets a copy of the complaint” The latter is where I disagree! My case will be reviewed and gives forewarning to the individuals who stole my parts then giving ample opportunity for a cover up or the ability to make it a null issue before you even get the opportunity to discuss it with a real person! No! I don’t agree with this procedure. I want to speak to someone first and show them my case first then confront the individuals not allowing to conspire or have warning they’ve been caught ripping off the customers. Email me if there is something in the works to stop this deceit and crooked Firestone employees and in my case his manager knew about it obviously!


unhappy Minnesota customer December 2, 2014 at 1:26 pm

I have had a horrible experience with firestone in st.Paul Mn.I simply asked that my fuses be checked as my heat went out.two employees checked my fuses and said they were all in working order and there was none missing which lead me to believe it was my blower then made an appt for me to bring my vehicle to another Firestone which would have cost me approxately 500.00.I then brought my car to another mechanic shop and explained to them it Was not the fuses,it had to be the they went to put the blower in,one of the lights was not working.they put the fuses in and sure enough the heat started blowing which caused the fan to break.this was a 6.00 job that has now turned into a major problem. I them called and spoke to Dana who holds a management position which I did recored the conversation in which she preceded to tell me that the gentleman that were under my hood and inside my car were not qualified or expierienced enough to tell me if my fuses were working or not.she tried justifying the situation by saying I was not charged and they stayed open late to look at my car,which I was there at 7:15 and they closed at 8pm.she was a very rude,disrespectful,dishonest manager and had absolutely no communication skills to hold a management position. I have yet to receive a call back from cooperate management. I am looking into having Firestone investigated. In no way should Firestone allow their employers to work or look at any customers car that are not qualified or expierienced. I am going to try to gather all complaints against firestone and see if there’s any type of group lawsuit that can held against them.this has been handled unprofessionally,calls not being returned, management positions not being fulfilled by management duties and I believe e a full investigation needs to take place with Firestone and ripping and cheating out of their money,turning a minor problem into a major problem to take innocent hard working people for their money.hope to c u in court firestone and hope enough people come forward to do a group lawsuit.

Correction,my car was brought at 6:15 as they closed at 7pm.I am hoping a class action lawsuit will be brought against Firestone. Please people get involved so we can show them this is unacceptable and they cannot get away with continuing to cheat their customers and should pay us back for the time we have been unable to drive our cars.hold Firestone accountable!

I have file a complaint for the third time, and I’ve still haven’t resolve this issue going on four weeks now. I do trust that someone will look into this situation and be able to make a decision that will be the right one. I have to tell you how sadden I am to have been going through this problem for four weeks. All I’ve experienced is how firestone has been trying to convince me that my car was not running at all when I brought it in. The truth of the matter is, my car was RUNNING as long as I kept my foot on the pedal, now how did I get to where I am today; I DON”T KNOW. all I ask is that firestone would fix what they messed up. Not try in push me off as if I don’t matter. Everyone sounds very friendly as if they care but NOTHING is being done, come on FOUR WEEKS!!!! I have been without my car as if it’s nothing to them. What is our world coming to? is this business or a scam? come on firestone WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? I pray that God deal with all false witnesses and the truth be made known. No one should ever had to go through what I’m going through. But as I’ve read all the other complaints my heart is sadden to se how in America we are being taken advantage of. God Bless America!!

Sincerely Disappointed Still,
Jeff Bledsoe

I researched for the best deal on 2 tires available and found Mark @ the 014257 Firestone store in Jax, FL.who said the tires would need to be ordered since they were out of stock on that particular tire. I was quoted $78.99/tire plus additional fees. While waiting for my tires to be installed, I found the tech., talking to his friend whom was feeding a dog, chicken bones. My car was in the air unattended, and when asked whom was working on my car, the tech. admitted that it was he. Additionally, he started replacing the 2 tires not intended to be replaced. I addressed the situation to the manager and was given a discount on Firestone tires (obvious) for my “wait time”. Now, I will have to buy the same type of Firestone tire, since it is common knowledge that you don’t run mismatched tires on your vehicle, spending nearly $100 more than I had originally budgeted. I work for my living. I don’t steal from the little people. Surely, this is not what Harvey Samuel Firestone had envisioned for his company in 1900. Obviously, Firestone tires are not of quality, as advertised, if they are offering them in place of a previously quoted cheaper tire to cover up for their employee’s intentional “mistakes”.

2007 Acura TL (current vehicle)

Firestone Customer Care,

My name is Lance Allstun.

At this point, I’m angry and outright disgusted with the lack of professionalism and customer service I’ve experienced on my latest visit to a new store. The past three weeks have been frustrating and disappointing due to the ongoing work being performed at the following Firestone store:

Jeff, Ruben, and Jesus at:
9823 Katy Fwy, Houston, TX 77024
(713) 401-3946 OR (713)464-2688

I normally entrust my repairs and maintenance to the Firestone location on Little York in Houston. The store manager there, George, has always taken good care of me since I moved to Houston. The only reason I considered the Katy Freeway location is because they were the only location open on Sunday when my serpentine belt began squeaking. I love my car so I considered this an emergency and brought it in for repair.

The store manager called me later that day to tell me my serpentine belt was in bad shape. I inquired about replacing all the belts including the timing belt/water pump. The total job including some other work to be performed was around $1260. I agreed to this. It’s a lot of money but worth it to me to keep my dream car running for the next decade.

What was supposed to be a 24 hour job, turned into an utter disaster. The mechanic installed my timing belt incorrectly and tried to start my car, instantly damaging my valves. Firestone decided to tear off the top end of my engine and repair the valves. They eventually replaced 12 valves and several other components, although I couldn’t tell you exactly because my receipt is illegible (no toner in printer).

Over the past three weeks, Firestone has wasted countless hours of my time and turned my dream car that always started on the first turn and purred deeply into what sounds like an old clunker with a permanent check engine light on blaring in my face.

The store manager, Jeff, is not taking responsibility for the damage his technician caused on his watch. Everything has been a struggle with this Jeff. I wish I had never stepped foot in his store.

As much as I like Firestone for most maintenance and repairs, I would not bring my Acura TL in for a head job and valve replacements even if I needed it. This was serious damage and the repairs should have been performed (and my car tuned) by an Acura specialist. None of this work was needed when I arrived and I did not come to Firestone to have this type of work done. My car ran perfect. Once the mechanic damaged my engine, my car should have been sent to Acura for repair. From that moment forward, Firestone has only been concerned with getting my car “running” regardless of the other damage, lights and noises that are present now.

My car now makes a ticking sound like an old car and has an engine light that won’t go off. Firestone damaged a solenoid component on the top part of my engine causing my engine light to come on. A smoke test resulted in a quote for me to pay an additional $300 to replace this part that was damaged during its removal and reinstallation by them. This part would never have been touched had the mechanic not damaged my engine. Returning my car to me with a check engine light on after damaging my engine is ridiculous. Asking me to pay more money to fix the damage they caused is outright rude. This is only one example of how bad the work performed and customer service has been at this location.

I entrusted my car to Firestone to perform the kind of preventative maintenance that would prevent this kind of serious damage from occurring in the first place. I understand the mechanic made a horrible mistake, and I was patient and understanding even when I heard my engine wouldn’t start and then would take over a week to fix. Now it has been three weeks and it is clear this Firestone store has no intentions of fully correcting their mistake.

All I want is for my TL to be in as good a condition as the day I brought it in.

Thank you,

Lance Allstun

Luwanda Reed October 18, 2014 at 1:56 pm

I just left firestone in Riverside Ca, my visit with them cause I had bought 4 new tires 2 months ago. Yesterday I had two flat tires so, towed my car into firestone today. the manager Peter help me and told me, that the damaged done to cause both flats where my fault something I did while driving, like running over a pot hole. he also said there was no warranty for my tries, I spent $400 for two new tires I drive a Saturn view with 15in tires what tire cost 200 a peace for a Saturn view.

I hope this will get fixed soon how are you in business? you build on reputation but your employees are hurting your brand name. Please train your staff not to rip off 71yr old women


d clark October 17, 2014 at 4:39 pm

I had work done by the firestone in naperville. Car broke down and they had it towed by axel towing in sugar grove. The tow company did damage to the car and wont fix it. Firestone wont stand behind it and help us even though its their tow company and now that the district manager is involved (Joe) they wont hardly talk to us anymore. Getting a lawyer .


David October 6, 2014 at 9:48 pm

I went of one of your locations in North Carolina to get a state inspections, I had then told that my vehicle did not past State inspection because my serpentine belt was cracked. They took me out to show me it, I could not see the cracks in it. I then left an went to replace it myself . After doing so returned to complete the inspection , had asked them how long a belt lasts an they told me 100,000 miles , I had this replaced at a Chevrolet dealership at around 80,000, I only have 123,000 miles on it now. I believe that this is what you would call a RIPOFF on their part. You needed a micro scope to see the so called Cracks in the belt. I have the belt and will be contacting the State of N. Carolina in regards to this matter of ripping off the general public off. Also over heard stories they were telling other customers what repairs would cost to have work done, amazing the prices they said ????


Jordan Ashlock September 29, 2014 at 4:16 pm

I’m currently stationed at luke afb in Arizona . I had a bad flat tire so I went to the Firestone on base. I inquired about my tire and they told me it needed to be replaced but they did not have my tire type in store so they had to order it. Two days later that new tire that they put on that I paid 189 dollars for goes flat. I call that Firestone and they tell me to come in , when I get there they tell me the tire needs to be replaced due to a nail messing up the inside. The employee told me that since it was not from their store I could not get it replaced without paying for a whole new one. I just paid 189 dollars for a new tire and now I have pay another 189 for another new one. I am completely frustrated with the business I was giving.


Lori Slavich September 29, 2014 at 1:47 pm

Cross Gates Firestone in Slidell La, where I have purchased tires for almost 20 years for four vehicles multiple times, just informed me that they did not include road hazard on my last purchase just two months ago & now I’m in Arlington Tx with a bunk tire and no warranty! $800 for tires and no warranty?? I’ve always had it & that’s why I buy Firestone tires. The nice people in Arlington are taking care of this for me but I will not ever buy another tire from the Cross Gates location & neither will the rest of my very large family who live in the area. You are boycotted & I will blast you on public media.


angry September 29, 2014 at 12:24 pm

I went in for a 22 dollar inspection and came out with a busted break line firestone needs to be shut down if I would have gotten on the express way instead of going home I probably wouldn’t be here… and of course they took no responsibilty thank you firestone in hillside IL for almost taking my life now ur being sued


Yvonne September 23, 2014 at 3:27 pm

After 2 days of the worst customer service ever, Firestone @ Cloverleaf Mall, Richmond, VA. I was told by customer service to go to another Firestone to get the service I wanted. Firestone @ McGuire Circle in Richmond, VA treated like customers should be treated (with respect). Thanks Jerry (store manager


Renita Mitchell August 30, 2014 at 4:14 pm

This is totally ridiculous that Firestone Humble, TX is refusing to fix my car, because I called Cooperate on them. This is so childish for grown men to be acting like children. I have never heard of such a thing, just fix my car and send me on my way and I will never return again. Don’t they know customer service is everything!


Renita Mitchell August 30, 2014 at 12:44 pm

I have taken my car to Firestone several times, each time being dissatisfied with the service. This is the worse place to take your care to be serviced. They are dishonest individual’s out to take advantage of woman. I will never recommend this place to family, friends or co workers, I am very disappointed in the service, I have received. They always come up with excuses why this has happened to your car, but they will never admit when they’re wrong. I am a woman and I feel they have totally taken advantage of me. What a trouble thing to do to innocent people.


Patricia Mibb August 11, 2014 at 11:27 pm

I first went to Firestone last Friday August 8th for them to look at my car where I had been told i had a exhaust manifold leak. They quoted me a price of 577.00 to replace the manifold. When I explained I didn’t have that much money, they invited me to fill out a finance form Well to my delight and relief I was approved for enough to fix my car. They told me to bring it in this morning at 8am, i was there. I called them at 11:30 to my surprise they had not even started on it but I was assured it would be ready by 5:30. I called him again at 3:30 to see how it was going, he told me he wasn’t sure if it would be finished today but he would try. I called again at 5:00 and he told me that the bolts was rusted therefore it would be tomorrow. I told him I needed my car for Dr appt tomorrow and he told me that I could come get it. So, when I got there my car was still parked in the same place I parked it this am, it was obvious that it had not been moved. He flat out lied to me. They never even put it on the rack but let me go all day without a vehicle and not even one phone call to let me know they couldn’t get to it in stead it was easier to lie! Too, I really believe they were charging me too much for that job. I was going to use them for several things I needed done, but they lost a customer today.


Amanda McCarthy August 7, 2014 at 9:12 pm

I have received nothing but horrible service from this company. I had a wheel hub barring replaced on my vehicle in April, the part was never installed correctly. I took it to a Nissan dealership because I had several lights come on, they told me all the lights had to do with the same Hub that was replaced by Firestone less then four months ago. I had to pay the dealership $136 for the Diagnostic test for them to tell me that Firestone has installed the Hub incorrectly and that I needed a new one. I asked them to refund me the money that I had to pay the dealership since that was the only problem with my vehicle. The district manager will not return any of my calls, the store manager assured me that my vehicle would be finished by lunch and was not. I would not recommend Firestone to any one. Terrible customer service!!!!!

This company is going to face a class action lawsuit for scamming customers.


Pamella Roark May 14, 2014 at 9:57 am

Looked online for a tire quote and noticed a BUY 3 TIRES GET ONE FREE. THE SALE PRICE IS $100.49. Under the sale price it says REGULAR PRICE $133.99, and this regular price line has a line going through it. There is a quote link that took me to another page and it priced the tire at regular cost and get 1 free. I called the Springfield store on Glenstone and they gave me their District Manger Melissa VanCastle to call. After explaining the problem she agreed with me and then transferred the call to David. David said that this is legal practice and in order to get the advertised buy 3 get 1 free that I would need to pay $401.97. THIS IS WRONG! I should be able to buy 3 get 1 free at the advertised sale price of $100.49 and pay $301.47 plus any taxes and fees.
Furthermore, after David told me that this is a legal advertising practice in advertising, he also stated that I should return to school. Is this how your managers treat your customers? How long has your company been running this SCAM?

Jimmy Bradley March 21, 2014 at 10:02 pm

I had the oil changed in my BMW at your Lagrange Park, IL store. When I recently went to have the oil changed again, I was told the tech was unable to remove the oil pan plug, due to the plug being powered drilled in place. When I informed your store manager that, they were the one who had done this, he denied it being possible because the plug should be tighten by hand. Also the same service broke the oil filter rubber mounts and spilled oil on the engine and bumper of the car. The service experience was horrible. They never offered to attempt to rectify this in any manner. I took my car to BMW dealer the repairs of the stripped oil pan plug and the filter mounts will be $683.36. I’m seeking a response from your management team. Is this what you call “GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE”.


Randy Williams March 18, 2014 at 12:21 pm

I call rebate reward line I explain to the supervisor Jesus that we was given the wrong paperwork from the Firestone store where we purchase the tires. I explain that Bridgestone said, I need to contact Firestone because it was there error. He said, sorry they can not do anything & contact store manager. I ask for his superviors name he refused to give me that information. Then refused to give me his last name. I told I just want right a letter to upper management about my concern. I will never spend a dollar with a firestone. If you have those type of individual working in a area of services. You see why store are closed. We have other company cars they will not be gettiing our business. It is not about rebate, now it is about the services


maja chengly February 19, 2014 at 1:35 am

Thank you for your time and consideration.

I went to the Spokane, Washington Firestone downtown 7/13/2014 at 4:30 to get a oil change. Store doesn’t close until 6. There was 1 vehicle in the shop with customer in waiting room. There was 2 or 3 auto techs in the shop and the manager which is a woman told me no I couldn’t get my car in as she was waiting for someone to come in and get a nail removed out of their tire. I then called the Spokane Valley Firestone and the guy answering the phone says they could not get me in as they have a tire sale going on. I will take my business somewhere else, I have been a regular customer for many years and the rudeness of the manager made my decision.
