Mavis Discount Tire
I purchased a hyundai sonata about 2 1/2 years ago. I have never had anyone at the dealership tell me anything serious, or try to con me into buying anything. I had a slight leak in my front left tire (driver side). I took it to Mavis Discount Tire Center on Larkfield Road in East Northport. The guy told me that I needed a new tire b/c the nail was close to the side. This was not a tear and two other guys from other dealerships told me they could plug it. I took it to Walmart and got it plugged. The nail was the size of half of a thumbtack. The guys at Mavis are extremely corrupt and I would never buy their crappy tires that they tried to sell me. I called the guy and told him about the tire and he said that the other mechanics weren't doing me any favors b/c it would likely tear. I have 25, 000 miles on my car and I would rather get a few more thousand miles out of the tire if I could. The hell with Mavis. I'm not just going to throw it away and get a new tire when I can get more mileage out of it in the meantime while it is plugged.
