I was having problems with my car dying on me and kept needing to have it jumped and it got to the point where I needed to have my car towed to the nearest auto repair shop. I had it towed to Goodyear and let them know that I needed a new

I live downtown and was a customer for 7or more years. Ron was my trusted mechanic.\r\n\r\nI was told he retired,(not true he transferred to West Seattle Elliott/Goodyear) I continued to take my car because of convenience and my past experiences but I would always have to return my car because it was not fixed properly. I eventually had it after several episodes of this, which I will not even bother writing about but I am disputing my last charge with AMEX. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR HERE. Take your car to Goodyear/Elliott Tires in West Seattle. When the manager left downtown to manage west Seattle all the good mechanics went with him including Ron. Ron did retire however the manager Larry will take care of you

Why can't I give NO STARS? I just wrote a long tirade on Yelp, so I can't be bothered to retype the whole thing, but I wanted to spread the word as much as possible that these guys will make up phone repeair needs AND charge (or at least try) you way more than other shops for those repairs.\r\n\r\nI've had a couple of minor issues with them, but the place is really close to my home and work, so I continued to use them for oil changes. The last time, they told me they noticed one strut leaking and told me I should replace all 4... for $2000! Luckily, I told them not to do anything, took it to a place that got rave reviews and found out that not a thing was wrong with my car. They even took me under and showed me where a strut leak would happen and what it would look like. Not to mention that when a strut is leaking, you replace the pair but not all 4! That took me all of 5 minutes to learn on the internet. \r\n\r\n

I went in for a brake issue, the estimate was for around $1000. When I didn't just jump at this, I was told I could easily get a Goodyear credit card to help pay. After saying that I wanted to take my car somewhere else for another estimate, they panicked and sent me a new estimate, this time for $580. I compared what they were charging for parts against prices I could find online. I was somewhat content to see that what they were now charging for parts was near to what was listed. When I compared the numbers against the 1st estimate, they tried to charge 3-4 times the list price! They also cut out a lot of labor charges that I can only assume were bogus as well, because, in the end, they fixed my problem in about 2 hours. I understand that in the car world that this is standard practice, but such a clear case of trying to take advantage of someone is inexcusable, especially from a national, ""reputable"" company.

Pros: Quick?

Cons: Tried to overcharge by almost double

My '99 Chevy Blazer broke down 100 yards from these guys so I pushed the car to them and asked them to look at it. They discovered the problem was a fuel pump and gave me a quote. I found it hard to believe that a fuel pump could cost what they quoted me so I called my regular mechanic on Rainer Ave. (just south of I-90) and asked them what they would charge. I ended up having my Car towed by my regular mechanic several miles away and with the towing cost included and paying the diagnostic charge at good year I still saved $200 by having my trusted mechanic do it. Yes it is an expensive part but they were flat out trying to rip me off by several hundred dollars. It was fun to tell Good Year how much money I was saving by having it towed out of their lot and done by a fair mechanic. But the kicker was after I told them that they said they would match the price...So they basically admitted that they added at least $400 profit on top of an $800 (2 hr) job.I told them no way and that I was happy to pay their $100 diagnostic fee to now know that I will never do business with them again. I have told all my friends and family - If you find yourself there (and can't avoid it) be sure to negotiate a much lower cost for whatever it is you are getting. They are in a high rent area - I would go elsewhere.If you need tires go to tirerack.com and use the local preferred provider or get a quote printed and bring it to GoodYear - They will match it and you will save $100's.

Took my truck there because it was making noise in the fan belt area. They suggested I replace my tensioner and belt, both which were less than a year old. Against my better judgement I had them do the work, which was 300% more than what I spent to have the exact same work done a year earlier (I moved from San Francisco 3 months ago so I couldn't go back to the original mechanic.) Got the truck back and the noise was worse than before I left it...the noise moved from only when idling to all the time, worst when accellerating, which was never a problem before. Took it back in, they looked at it again, and told me they THINK it MIGHT be one of two ADDITIONAL things, but can't be sure if either of them will fix the noise. Hmm, I thought the initial work was supposed to fix the noise. So now they want to charge me $150 more (on top of $425) to fix one of the new ""possibilities"". \r\n\r\nIf you want a mechanic that works on a ""trial and error"" basis, these are the guys for you. But I'd try to find someone who stands by their work.

Cons: My idiocy for not heeding the "Help Wanted" sign outside.

Needing a new oil pan recently, I was towed into Goodyear on a Sunday. On my return 2-3 days later, I had been charged a diagnostic fee (unnecessary since I had already told them what was wrong), and was told I needed new struts and new front tires. I took my car to our local mechanic after returning home...much to my dismay but not surprised, I did NOT need new tires and the struts were just fine. I actually only needed an alignment. Unless absolutely necessary (as in my case), don't take your car to someone you don't know.

A few years back I only went to goodyear, they always seemed somewhat nice and helpfull. One time I went there to repair a flat they told me I needed to buy all 4 new tires because they were currently illegal. They said they couldnt by law let me leave the store without 4 new tires. That seemed a little fishy to me because I had just bought the tires 5 months ago and not used them that much throughout that time. I talked to them and threatened them and finally left (I had to pay to get my flat fixed). I went over to Les Schwab and asked them and they said the tires were fine, just a little underinflated and they pumped them up for me. Les Schwab was very nice and I only go to them now. Be wary when dealing with Goodyear.

PROS:
CONS: not honest
