I have bought a tire from Scott Tire almost exactly one and a half year ago for my four wheel drive Subaru Forester 2009. I found the shop through the AAA approved repair shops in this area. I have been extremely satisfied until today since
1) I thought that I got a good deal.
2) They sold me a tire protection plan for the tire I installed but they agreed to do free tire rotation for me for four tires (I just used it once).

However, after a tire incident that alluded me to check my tires. It turned out that I needed to change two more tires. Then the reality downed on me. Scott changed for me a different type of tire than my other three, which is against every suggestions I got this time for four wheel drive. Essentially it could cause the differentiator (front and/or back) to go bad in a couple of years (they suppose to last life time of the car). Replacing either of them could cause anywhere from 1500 to 3000 $.

Now it appears that the only feasible choices for me are either changing the four tires or buying three tires that are the same as the original. In either case, I have to get rid of the tire they installed.

I am thinking of getting AAA to help to resolve the issue. But apparently they are not on the AAA approved repair shop any more. I will try to contact them to resolve this. If I get positive results, I will consider coming back to change the rating. Anyhow, this is a seeming best experience turned very bad.

We keep going back to Scott Tire for all of our automobile maintenance. They have been a family owned and operated business for over 60 years in Clifotn and have maintained a sterling reputation. They stand behind the quality and reliability of their products and their workmanship.
