goodyear servitek

I have tried the Bridgestone tire center at the Fort and changed all 4 tires of my Honda CRV. Service was good > I wiuld recommend this place to you guys out there.

change oil / tune up is OK. experience ko before, I availed of their change oil package, to my surprise, it took then 1 and a half hour to have the oil filter from other branch. promo package nila eto pero bakit wala sila stock ng part for that service....

they don't accept or service you car pag ikaw ang magpro-provide ng parts....eh mas mura ang binibilihan ko ng parts sa banawe.....

basic service lang matino d2, tipong change oil, change tires, basta not any service that requires the use of brain, kasi wala cla

nito, Well, at least not ung Shaw branch nila na may tie-up pa sa Goodyear, naka advertise Good Year Servitek pero obvious na

obvious Rapide ang store. This branch sucks big time, I just asked them to change my brake-pads kasi may ingay na, amp0ta

mga b0b0 ung rephasing site nila ng discs nsa makati pa, my rotor discs had to travel from shaw-makati-makati to shaw just to

get re-phased. Pero, cge pabigyan natin kasi baka nga wala cla machine shop tlga dun, eh p0ta akalain mo nga naman ang layo

na nga ng pina-rephase nila mali pa ampotaaaaa!! , cge cge pag-bigyan pa natin, pumunta ulet discs ko from

shaw-makati-makati-shaw to get re-rephased. AMPOTA PAG BALIK AT NUNG NUNG KINABIT UNG BRAKES KO IMBES NA MAWALA UNG PROBLEMA NG

BRAKES KO LALONG LUMAKI, FROM A SOFT TINGLING SOUND FROM THE BRAKES BEFORE, NOW ITS A FREAKING KNOCK, AND

A LOUD ONE AT THAT. ASSHOLES REALLY, DUMBASSES, HAD TO BRING MY CAR TO HONDA AND COST ME 4 THOU TO FIX

THE DAMAGE THEY DID.


SCREW RAPIDE-SHAW!!!!

Just beware at so-called "named" shops. I know for a fact that Mega Motion has a policy enforced by their boss and employees to replace whatever is possible for the situation, in order to increase sales. Perhaps, Rapide has the same policy.



Is this the one located in Banawe and had Gabby Concepcion on their TV commercial?

never tried rapide but from colleagues' experience as far as exorbitant estimates vs. estimates from other shops, i think i wouldn't dare trying them out.

im very happy with goodyear servitek along alabang zapote road in las pinas.

So far Goodyear Servitek services were excellent. I have tried both their braches in Marcos Hi-way and Ortigas Avenue. They even allow you to bring your own spare parts, even for change oil.

di talaga maganda sa Rapide... dati akala ko ok dito at dito ako nagpapagawa pero amf! todo jacked ang prices nila pati na rin sa parts na ni recommend nila... yung fan belt na pinalitan nila daw which I paid almost a thousand for, ala pang 4 mos. napatid na agad... tpos andami pa nila gusto palitan sa kotse ko dahil malapit na daw masira, delikado na daw.... binigyan ako ng estimate na almost 20k para sa radiator at timing belt (as in yung belt lng ha..)... ngeks! di na lng... sa iba na ko nagpagawa....

tama nga yun iba... mga bobo... here is my experience. i went to their shop sa may vito cruz yata yun to have my car checked kasi pag inaapakan yun brake pedal umiilaw yun light sa may dashboard, ang sabi sa akin hinde daw nya madetect kung san yun problema and kailangan daw nya ibaba yun buong dashboard then rewiring daw nya. wag na lang. then pinacheck ko nalang sa isang auto electrician near our place ang problema lang pala is mali yun bulb na nakabit sa tail light, imbes na double polarity ba tawag dun eh single lang yun nakalagay. ayun eh di ayos na problema ndi na kailangan baba yun dashboard at rewiring pa. san kaya nila nakukuha mga trabahador nila? baka mga mekaniko ng bike yun hinde kotse. hahaha.

I had a really lousy experience with their Meralco Ave. branch (malapit sa Metrowalk).

I brought my car in because may tunog sa right front wheel. Sabi ko suspecha ko yung wheel bearings sira na. They performed this multi point check up with this long checklist.

At the end of it, ang daming recommended parts na palitan at kung anu-ano pa that totaled 70k in parts and labor. WTF?! At ang surprise, di man lang na-check yung bearing na inireklamo ko. Sabi ko, chief, ok lang yung bearing? Sabi nya ok yan walang problema. Sabi ko tiningnan mo ba? Kasi pinanood ko lahat ng ginawa mo parang di mo man lang sinilip. May tunog kasi talaga eh. Tinawag ko yung service manager, na obliga mag check si mokong at guess what he said? Sir sira na yung bearing mo.

Eh kung di ka ba naman koops eh yun nga yung pinasok ko eh. Imagine kung wala akong alam sa auto nagbayad ako ng 70k for things I didn't need and di nagamot yung problema ko.

RAPIDE SUCKS. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

I took it to my friend's shop (2nd option ko kasi malayo, nasa may SM North pa) at naayos ang bearing ko wala pang 2k kasama na labor.

Same venue. I took my car to them look at my brake pads. they looked into the brake pads and everything else -- shocks, wheel alignment, etc. they were going to charge me 25K for the repairs. i didnt bite.

I took my car to Servitek along e rod. they fixed my car for less than 2K all in.

let me add my name to the list of those with bad experience with Rapide. Dagdag palagi. Take a brand new car in and I am sure they will find lots of things to fix.
