The Potential Danger Of Discount Oil Change Chains
The discount oil change at the big national chain store, it’s so alluring. Just look at all you get for $14.95, or #19.95! Or could you possibly be getting more (or less) than you bargained for? The old sayings still apply…”there’s no free lunch” and “if it’s too good to be true, it probably is”. We don’t intend to pick on a particular chain, today’s story just happens to have occurred at a Jiffy Lube, and was caught on camera by a news team.
Unscrupulous personnel can pop up in any one location and it’s always good to be on the lookout. In this case, work was being charged for but not actually provided. Check out how this unfolds in the video below… And later, another expose by the same team finds even worse problems…
My normal mechanic doesn’t do alignments and I was getting new tires at Costco. I looked these guys up and saw the good reviews. They were able to get me in same-day within the hour. I was not pressured to do anything else (my oil change light was on) and they had me in and out in 20 minutes. My alignment is perfect and I would not hesitate to recommend these professionals!
