I'd been hearing a metal rattle going over bumps from the driver's side front wheel on my 2015 Honda Fit. The Honda dealer looked at it twice, including a test drive and concluded, "well, there's just a little play in the stabilizer bar, as long as you can put up with the noise, we don't recommend repairs." Well, I decided that I couldn't put up with the rattle, those kinda things never get better over time. I had to be in the Lynnwood area and like to opt for using smaller businesses, so after looking online and seeing positive reviews, went with Lynwood Tire. I called and explained the issue, they said replacement of the stabilizer bar would fix the rattle and sent a link to authorize $234 for the job, so I did. Unfortunately, replacement of the stabilizer bar wasn't the issue and the rattle persisted after the work. It seems that Lynwood Tire didn't do any diagnostics and took Honda's assessment as I reported over the phone at face value. That's very disappointing. I feel I just wasted $234 and am no closer to knowing what the issue is. I guess I now know what it isn't. I gave 3 stars which I consider average. I'm sure they replaced the part well, they were nice, ready for my appointment and have a nice waiting area.
Meredith We are sorry that you are still having a problem. We did ask if you wanted us to take a look into the noise instead of just replacing the parts that you requested. Please contact us if you would like to go forward with finding the noise. We appreciate your business.
