Default This is why I work on my own car.

One of the reasons why I do my own work....

What'* pathetic is they won't admit what they did, even though they were caught on camera! And to top it off, the district manager tried to hide his identity. This happened to my mom at one time, she went for a tranny fluid change, they didn't change it, nor even touch it at all! She got her money back and the local manager was fired.

I pulled into the parking lot, went to look, and i had a cheapy brand air filter, I went back in, and I said "Uh, where'* the K&N?"

what k and n man?

"THE f*** ONE YOU TOOK OFF THE BONNEVILLE, JAGOFF"

oh lemmie go check w/ my manager

'bout two min later,

the manager walks into the garage, looks in the trash, and my f*** reusable airfilter is sitting right on top of the f*** pile in the garbage can . .

The manager gave me the old one back and told the kid to go home, he was fired

HAH!!! NO KIDDING?? The same thing happened to me!! TWICE!

What I said. I will do my own work, no one will ever touch my cars unless I know them or if they are family friends.
