Firestone History

Harvey Samuel Firestone founded the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company  in 1900 to supply rubber tires to wagons and buggies.

Harvey Firestone had a personal friendship with Henry Ford. Ford saw the potential market for tires for automobiles and Firestone tires were chosen to be the original supplier of new and replacement tires for the Ford Motor Company.

In 1998 Firestone was bought by Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd, a Japanese company that was founded in 1931 by Shojiro Ishibashi, for $2.6 billion.

Firestone was renamed Bridgestone/Firestone, Inc in the United States and is the largest subsidiary of Bridgestone.

The company was again renamed and is now called Bridgestone Americas (BSAM).

Today Firestone has 40,000 employees.

This company is going to face a class action lawsuit for scamming customers.

Looked online for a tire quote and noticed a BUY 3 TIRES GET ONE FREE. THE SALE PRICE IS $100.49. Under the sale price it says REGULAR PRICE $133.99, and this regular price line has a line going through it. There is a quote link that took me to another page and it priced the tire at regular cost and get 1 free. I called the Springfield store on Glenstone and they gave me their District Manger Melissa VanCastle to call. After explaining the problem she agreed with me and then transferred the call to David. David said that this is legal practice and in order to get the advertised buy 3 get 1 free that I would need to pay $401.97. THIS IS WRONG! I should be able to buy 3 get 1 free at the advertised sale price of $100.49 and pay $301.47 plus any taxes and fees.
Furthermore, after David told me that this is a legal advertising practice in advertising, he also stated that I should return to school. Is this how your managers treat your customers? How long has your company been running this SCAM?

I had the oil changed in my BMW at your Lagrange Park, IL store. When I recently went to have the oil changed again, I was told the tech was unable to remove the oil pan plug, due to the plug being powered drilled in place. When I informed your store manager that, they were the one who had done this, he denied it being possible because the plug should be tighten by hand. Also the same service broke the oil filter rubber mounts and spilled oil on the engine and bumper of the car. The service experience was horrible. They never offered to attempt to rectify this in any manner. I took my car to BMW dealer the repairs of the stripped oil pan plug and the filter mounts will be $683.36. I’m seeking a response from your management team. Is this what you call “GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE”.

I call rebate reward line I explain to the supervisor Jesus that we was given the wrong paperwork from the Firestone store where we purchase the tires. I explain that Bridgestone said, I need to contact Firestone because it was there error. He said, sorry they can not do anything & contact store manager. I ask for his superviors name he refused to give me that information. Then refused to give me his last name. I told I just want right a letter to upper management about my concern. I will never spend a dollar with a firestone. If you have those type of individual working in a area of services. You see why store are closed. We have other company cars they will not be gettiing our business. It is not about rebate, now it is about the services

I went to the Spokane, Washington Firestone downtown 7/13/2014 at 4:30 to get a oil change. Store doesn’t close until 6. There was 1 vehicle in the shop with customer in waiting room. There was 2 or 3 auto techs in the shop and the manager which is a woman told me no I couldn’t get my car in as she was waiting for someone to come in and get a nail removed out of their tire. I then called the Spokane Valley Firestone and the guy answering the phone says they could not get me in as they have a tire sale going on. I will take my business somewhere else, I have been a regular customer for many years and the rudeness of the manager made my decision.
