    NICE. I like this idea - when the "professionals" didn't finish the job and left my coolant low, engine never smoked but luckily I noticed the temp gauge being VERY HIGH and was able to pull over right away and let it cool down.

    Car work is VERY YMMV, some people have someone they can take it to that is honest and will treat 'em right, some don't. I thought I did and learned the hard way.

    I always do my own work when I have the time because I have had the same thing happen. Yes they may be liable for their mistakes; however, the inconvenience of forcing them to fix it is enraging. Also, I dont have to listen to a sales pitch for every @!#$ filter/fluid that "needs" replacing.

    on the plus side, if you listen to them, you will get your engine, trans, and diff flushed every 3k mi, and new wiper blades...
