I got the female treatment at the oil change place!
First, let me say, I know how to change my own oil, but we dont have a proper jack for me to do it. I am motivated to get one now.
So anyway, I went to get my oil change, I usually go to whoever has a coupon. So far at two different places they each suggested 600 something dollars in unneccary repairs. The first was serpintine belts which are fine after I looked at them.
This place though, Midas, took it over the top. They were telling me my car's non problem (a suggested transmission flush) was a safety issue and I shouldn't get back on the road without getting it done because I could blow the transmission on my car!!!!!!!!
My car has 50, 000 miles on it, I know it is *suggested* to have it done around that time but it is NOT a safety issue. I have no transmission issues whatsoever. I have done minor repairs to cars and my ex is a mechanic so I know what's up.
I wish I had a camcorder to record all this and send it in to the local news.
Oh, and they didn't catch the one problem with my car, the top middle breaklight is out lol.
