    For as much people complain about cable companies customer service being bad on here, man Jiffy Lube is a close close second in customer service.
    They fucking hound you about everything. Rust inside your bumber, your paint fading, bad radio, transmission, everything. Every time I go they say I need new air filters, every time. Then they ramble on about air safety and my kids etc etc.

    I just want to get my oil changed and don't need to be hot boxed for 30 minutes by a junior high school dropout coming off a three day meth binge!

    Man I've had it with those places.

    Seriously, these kinds of places are notorious for trying to get you to spend more money than you had planned to spend. It sucks, better to do it yourself if you can. They also ask you if you want the synthetic oil which is more money of course. I think I know if I want it or need it, ty. I hate the ones where you have to sit in your car, Id rather go sit inside where I dont have to witness the torture firsthand.

    I've heard so many stories about those dumb fucking kids not tightening down the oil pan drain plug and people losing all of their oil and blowing the motor. I can't believe they are still in business.

    They told me that a little rock chip in my windshield needed to be fixed because it was illegal to drive in ny without fixing it.
    I asked them to show me that law on the Internet. Of course, they backed off. They are a bunch of failed mechanics who make a commission selling other services.

    Take it to the dealer or do it yourself.

    But the quick oil change places by me don't hassle you

    Blow out your air filter with an air compressor.

    Theyre shit.

    When I had an Acura, they literally couldnt find the dipstick nor the oil filter...

    Only reason I had someone else do that car was cause the filter was a pain to access.


    Please, please, no please, pretty please, with very few exceptions, never go to the stealership.

    I went to local dealer, said its probably about time for a battery and serpentine belt along with my oil change. They called me 30 mins later, said oil was done and no other items needed after inspection.

    Earned a customer for life. How easy would it have been to just replace those shits?

    I avoid those types of places like the plaque. All dishonest employees selling you shit you don't need. Better off going to Goodyear or doing it yourself.

    Once I went to a Jiffy Lube, they drained the oil out of my F150, then said it was going to be $90 for a synthetic blend oil change and tire rotation.

    I told them $90 for a simple oil change and tire rotation was highway robbery and asked how they got to $90 (Factory Spec was 5w-20 synthetic blend).

    Synthetic Blend was $49.99 and only included 4 Qts. I had to pay $6.50 per Qt additional on top of the initial $50, and the tire rotation was $14.99. I told them no thanks and got back in my truck to leave... low and behold the asshole in the pit already drained all 7 quarts of existing oil out of my F150.

    I was forced to pay the price of the oil change and told them to forget about the rotation. That was the first and last time I will ever visit an instant oil change place. I would have done it myself, but it was 5 degrees F outside that day, I was going on a roadtrip, and was pressed for time. I thought the instant oil change place wouldnt rip me off because its always busy, but boy was I wrong.

    I have an Audi. At my 25,000 mile service they tell me that I only have 3 mm left on my brake pads and I need new rotors. Get quoted $1200 to do front brakes and rotors. Yes-$1200. I take my car to a couple of local independent Audi mechanics, who tell me it can wait, and there is a sensor in the brake pads that will warn me when I have $1,000 miles left on my brake pads. I am at 40,000 miles and sensor has not gone off. When I went back for my 35,000 mile services, I told them they could skip the recommendation on the brake pads that I have not replaced since my last visit--Guy at the counter says "Its a safety issue." Yeah, for suckers.

    ...if your car has been running on dino oil dont change it to synthetic. synthetic oil will find any possible place to leak, and it will, if your car has been running regular oil and has some miles on it. if you have a new or low mileage car its ok to switch to synthetic but stay with it. dont go back and forth.

    Those places give away the oil change and make their money on the up selling. Tell them to pound sand. Forty five dollars to change a twelve dollar air filter? Yeah, go fuck yourself with that noise. I used to change my own oil, but not anymore. Cold, dirty, busted knuckle, what the fuck do I do with the waste oil? etc.. For twenty bucks, you're going to change my oil, rotate my tires, clean my windows AND vacuum my car? Heh, have at it.

    Walk in..oil change... I'm not interested in any other service... let those up selling cunts take the loss. Stop being a push over.
