In Reply to: SEARS....never again.... posted by KP on January 04, 2000 at 13:11:53:
A few years back when I was severely lacking in funds, I took my VW Fox to SEARS to have some new front struts put in. I got the car back and all seemed ok. Two mornings later, my father took the car for a cigarette run. On the way back he felt something strange, and the next thing he knew, there was no steering. Some idiot had assembled the car improperly. Luckily, he was going slow, so nothing bad happened. The mechanics at SEARS are just awful. Watch out for their sister store, NTB, as well. I had four new Pirellis put on my E30 and the front end had an awful shimmey. A month later I had the car serviced at the dealer and mentioned the shimmey. They checked it out, rebalanced the tires and all was well. You just can't win.
