My mom had one of those "Free Oil change" coupons from a new place just down the block. I told her not to use it. She went and the car started leaking power steering fluid. I checked on it and sure enough the top flare nut on the hydraulic hose had been loosened. It never did it before and never did it since. TANSTAAFL people! BTW the place went out of business very quickly.

What upsets me is that they always get away with it. Why weren't they charged and locked up on the spot?

"You really need to think about replacing your blinker fluid. Its about $29.99, unless you want our Eco-Friendly, gluten free fluid, which runs for $299.99"
