So, this has happened to me and a few other people I know. I went in for a synthetic oil change.
Took close to an hour on it but I don't care about the time. They do their so claimed inspection and claimed that I need a new battery, new head gaskets, which would total around $2, 500. If this was the case with my car, my personal mechanic would have told me this when I took the car in for a new timing belt. This happened before as well when I took a previous car in for new tires.
Ran up an estimate of $1, 500. I would definitely not recommend this company for anybody. Right next to me the employee was talking up and elderly woman about her car. These guys are seriously *** and only care about business.
By the way synthetic oil isn't changed every 3k miles.
I drive an 07 Impreza and no way would I change it every 3k, when the dealership even had their sticker at 5k for regular oil. WORST PLACE EVER.
