Altho a mechanic was given instructions to use synthetic oil, during
the 120k checkup the shop used petroleum oil for the oil change.
What's the get-well for this? New oil, new filter, punch the mechanic
Gee....after hearing everyone calling dealerships 'stealerships' and that
independant shops and
mechanics are gods, this breathes a breath of fresh air into the BS!
Take it back and make them change the oil and filter on their dime. That is a
comeback on them/him.
Thanks- that was the plan, so far, but I wasn't sure if putting
additional miles on the car is a smart thing or not. I was thinking
about swapping the oil myself to avoid more miles, but if that won't
cause damage then I'm with you: we'll have the shop do it.
