2. Heard from coworkers about them not putting stuff back correctly (like correct amount of oil, or the dipstick). How hard is that?
3. Personally witnessed them drop a fairly nice Mercedes down into the grease pit! Yet they insist on driving the car into the bay themselves.
4. The don't have the filters or oil I need.
5. The quality of their work varies greatly by site: buyer beware.

Other than that they're great. Your mileage may vary.

Yeah, I won't use them for oil changes any more. I'll just do it myself. For smog and safety inspection, however, I have to go SOMEWHERE. The local shop by my house was closed last night, so I just went to Jiffy Lube.

The guy who tested it claimed to know a lot about hondas but had never heard of a Civic VX before. That kind of scared me too :P

That one-stop-shopping sounds great. MA has too many contractor-fingers in the soup to be that efficient.

Some guy at work was whining about 5 wire o2s (a mechanic) and I told him honda started using them in 92 and he didn't believe me...

The funny thing about mechanics is that they don't know why the 5 wire is different, just that it is.

I had a friend go there for an oil change back in the mid 90's with his Chevy Cavalier. I guess they didnt tighten down the drain plug and it fell out about 5 miles later and drained all of his oil. Motor went by-by. I tell everyone never EVER go there.

My sister's boyfriend works for them. In fact, that is one option I'm considering for getting the Triumph to pass inspection once converted.

Missouri hates EVs, especially our governor. You see, Matt Blunt's(the governor's) family makes their living off of the auto industry, mostly car dealerships.

Most people at these places don't know what they're doing. But I have no problem making use of them when applicable.

Matt Blunt is one of the biggest douchebags in elected office, so it makes sense he's in Missouri, but whatever.....................

Sorry, honey, I'll try to be nicer next time his state passes an amendment against basic human rights and equality.
