I went to Pep Boys for an Oil Change. As usual they like to tamper with things that you didnt want them to do!

After paying I went to get my car and saw the mechanic with my car hood up touching stuff under the hood still. He asked me if my car was accelerating on it own before i came for my oil change. AND IT DID NOT. I felt deep down that Pep Boys was trying ruining my car inorder to get more money from me.

While driving on the Highway 5 Minutes after. My car went from 50-90mph in 6 Secs by itself and the brake was stuck. I had to press as hard as i can to get to side of the road and use the Emergency Brake and this still wasn't enough. I had to shut off the car instantly to avoid hitting a tree or driving off a nearby hill and ending my life.

Im only 20 years old. My life barely started.

And because of Pep Boys greed for money I could have lost my life before it began. Please do not use endanger your life by using Pep Boys to service your vehicle.

Pep Boys worked on my cargo van three consecutive times with bad luck and refunded a portion of my money back. No more Pep Boys for me.

Good Lord people, learn how to spell. It truly makes you look uneducated and moronic. Oh, and Pep Boys sucks, go to a small garage to have work done, not Pep or Jiffy Lube type *** hole.

if you would learn how to perform such simple tasks to your cars or at least get off your waiting area *** and watch those people you let touch your ride they are less apt to start fiddling with areas that dont have nothing to do with what you came their for.

Yep this happened to me too. They messed with a bunch of things under my hood so I would come back.

Instead I went to my dealership and they fixed everything.

I had leaks, to loose things under the hood. U should've sued them and someone needs to do so!

multi million dollar company? don't you people realize the ceo of this company is not in the building.

there a bunch of *** artists and convicts. just like when you need to get your $20.00 (if you do it yourself) brake pads changed all of a sudden you need new rotors and your calibers are bad and your car will not stop unless you pay $800.00. I have never had a brake caliber go bad after being told they were bad. these guys are slipping money in their own pockets.

if you pay cash they have this slick scam after you pay they print up an other receipt with the real prices they charge after giving you a fake. pocketing 25 percent of each cash transaction.

if you say hurry up im in a rush or something they will leave the oil screw loose or your lug nuts depending on what you are getting done. also there is the "this is going to cost you thousands but i can do it after hours for a fraction of the price.

You would be surprise and shocked what kind of mechanics companies hire to work on your cars. I think Pep Boys recruits them out of the prison systems!
