Very Disappointing service local Sprinfgfield Store
I decided to give support to the local store and went in for a tyre repair. There were 3 workers standing the workshop and totally ignored my entrance into the reception area until I went out to the them. Then [name removed] comes in gives me a quote and I give the go ahead. This was Thursday midday, Friday comes and I have to phone him for a update, to which he replies that the supplier "Perrili" are terrible with with supplying on time.I acknowledged that it was beyond their control but would appreciate some feedback from him as to when it ...arrives. Monday comes and I have to phone him to find out what is happening. He says that the wrong tyre was delivered. I was angry by now and if I had my Rim with me I would have gone to another tyre shop.Tuesday Comes by and still no news , my wife phones him and guess the tyre is there, and we can come in at any time to get it installed on the car. VERY DISAPPOINTING SERVICE from a local store , but then again, it could just be MY COLOUR.
Caused more problems - potential damage
I'm still shocked that I paid Bridgestone to waste my time and cause potential damage to my car.
I went to the Blacktown store on Third Ave for a wheel alignment on Tuesday 31st March.
Immediately after the alignment, I heard knocking sounds in my front right wheel. I took it back to the store on Sat 19th April. They claimed to find nothing wrong with it. I drove away and started hearing rattling sounds in addition to the knocking. It was too late to go back as the store had closed at 1pm.
I took the car home and found that the front ...wheel appeared loose and moved when shook. I couldn't find a mechanic open on the weekend and was scared to drive the car. I took Monday 20th April off work to take the car back to Bridgestone and tell them what was happening. The mechanic said, and I quote, "looked over it and couldn't find anything". We then went for a drive (with the mechanic) and he admitted he could still hear the rattling and said "your shock absorbers may need replacing soon, come back when the noise gets worse and we will replace them". He then said "IT IS SAFE TO DRIVE".
Excellent Service at Bridgestone select @ Oakleigh F/T gully rd.
Had 4 tyres replaced on my Mitsubishi Lancer this morning. Was very pleased with the service offered, Tony at the front desk was excellent, must say it was a pleasure dealing with him. They offered me a competitive price on the tyres and also found an issue with the front end and provided a reasonable quote for the repairs. The free coffee was a bonus! ; )
Free Wheel Alignment Means No Wheel Alignment at Bridgestone Select Albany Creek?
Recently had four new tyres fitted to my Ford Falcon.
I was fortunate enough to have a shopper docket offering a free wheel alignment.
After the alignment was completed, I was advised that one of the steering ball joints required replacement. I was also quoted about $140.00 to do the repair.
I took the car to my usual mechanical repairer who I have used for 15 years to get a service done and the ball joint repaired. I also had the wheel alignment done again by him after replacing the ball joint. He advised that the alignment was that far out...
Car Service - Fault Diagnosis & Repair - Excellent
Previously I have used Bridgestone Ferntree Gully to replace my tyres. I was satisfied with the service and price at that time.
Today, I had the car serviced, several faults with the car were diagnosed and fixed (broken oxygen sensor, leak in washer bottle hose, air con bearing replaced, faulty radiator cap replaced).
I booked the service at short notice, the day before, as the check engine light had started to come on.
I dropped the car off at 9am and needed it back at 3pm so I could do the school pick-up.
They did a great job, fixed my c...
I had 2 tyres needing replacement. Although the tyres I wanted weren't in stock, Kyle had them in at 10:00am the next day (I was in there at 3:30pm!!) and called to let me know. 30 mins later, the tyres were on and good to go. Highly recommend these guys. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
I had four new tyres fitted plus a wheel alignment at Bridgestone Select, Belmont, today and the service and courtesy was excellent. The job was completed promptly while I waited in their clean office/showroom and the total price of $366.00 was cheaper than I had expected. The wheel alignment cost only $49.00. I was very pleased all round.

Bridgestone select Camperdown
I booked my van in for a full service including brakes and timing belt 2 weeks prior to actually getting the work done as they said they were too busy. I was under the impression that the work would be completed in a day (I know it's totally possible) but they said it would take 2 days.
On the second day the van had been there I called to see how it was going. The response was that I wouldn't be getting it back today as they had to wait for the timing belt to arrive but they taken everything apart and it would cost over $2500. I nearly choked ...
Bridgestone Select Beaconsfield
Had a set of RE050A fitted and a wheel alignment check done at the same time. I was quoted $80 for the alignment but only paid $59 as "they didn't need to adjust the rear." Not many people would do this, just charge the full amount. The car was ready well within the time given and the service was very good.
Speed of service and explanation of all charges on invoice.
Stay away from Bridgestone Select Philip (Canberra)
I bought a car service voucher offered by Bridgestone Select from Livingsocial. The service was stated to be a major service valued at $630.
I happily left the car early in the morning at Bridgestone Select Philip, which is close to my home, and then received a call around lunch time from the shop manager saying that all 4 tyres and air filter needed to be replaced. I agreed to have the air filter changed for additional $55, but not the tyres since I knew at most only two tyres would need new ones. I collected the car after work. When the m...anager keyed in the service items into the computer, he had trouble of finding what services had been completed. This raised my suspicion that some jobs listed on the receipt might not have been done. After I got home, I opened the air filter box for an inspection and shockingly I found that the air filter box was still full of leaves and dirt and the air filter did not look like new. The windscreen wiper fluid was not topped up. The following day, I drove the car to the service workshop in Philip and questioned the Manager about the air filter. As expected, he did not admit that the air filter was not changed and showed me a very filthy air filter (Repco brand), which he claimed to be the replaced filter from my car. I told him that the car was serviced previously by Toyota (my car is a Camry) and the filter could not be possibly from my car. In addition, his excuse for the dirty air filter box was that the vaccum in the workshop was not working. Of course, I did not believe him. I contacted his manager, at Autoco (also in Philip; Bridgestone Select Philip is under the managent of Autoco Philip) and complained about the poor services. They were not helpful at all. As for the tyres, I took the car to Costco and was told that only two tyres needed to be changed. Clearly, Bridgestone Select Philip were wrong about about the condition of the tyres. My advice: Do not have your car serviced and tyres changed by Bridgestone Select Philip. Unreliable. Poor service.
