i take that the vehicle was damaged while being serviced?? if you wanna split hairs, every vehicle is used, even when it hits that showroom floor.

question: why would you take a new vehicle to any place other than the dealer to be serviced if it's new???

There were a lot of 'em on that page. It was about a 10 min read. Some of the complaints are pretty retarded. Many of 'em were stuff like the oil drain plug poping out.

That is why I always change my own oil, that way I know it is done right.

I don't do my own...takes ME too long...I take it to Jiffy Lube, take my own oil and double check that everything was done right when they are done. I've been burned by shops before screwing up on oilchanges and mechanical work. I check to see if the level is correct, fittings were lubed, drain is tight, filter tight, and fill spout is tight. I'm not taking chances with a 204K mile truck that I payed $17K for!

I do my own and for good reason too... I have been on both sides of the quick lube shops and they are a joke! it is verry comon practice to leave the old oil filter on if it is to hard to get off or if they have to spend 5 mins to go to the parts store to get one that isnt stocked or they dont have a tool for.
the shop where i worked window washing fluid was one cup of concentrated washer fluid to a 50 gallon drum? verry comon practice to just use penzoil instead of the brand that a customer asked for. then you have the sometimes hard remove inspection plugs ie. dif, man trans, tcase, grease zerks, ets that well unless the person is watching you you dont check because you have 10 minutes to do a 15 minute service on the vehicle. not to mention the deliberate and intentional desruction of property I have seen police cars leave the shop with wires sniped under the car, loose oil filters plugs tranny lines etc... I have even seen a County prosecuter get a gallon of washerfluid poured right into the oil fill hole. ive seen carb cleaner poured in the tranny fill tube etc. and so forth soem of these things being accidental but allot of them just being on purpose! not to mention the only people you are going to get to bathe in oil and grease and get countless exhaust burrns day after day after day for 5 bucks and hour are inexperianced teenagers and local drug adicts... just who I would trust working on my vehicle

I only place I trust to work on my truck is the Ford Fleet Center down the road. I go there for all services and warranty work and also the guys that work there are all certified to work on Fords and other vehicles. Plus they give me good rates because the company I work for gives them a lot of business.
