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”.
