Jiffy Lube – Drive In, Get Screwed

I know, not exactly new (the video is from August 2006), but still worth spreading the word about.

I love the way at the end the guy tries to pretend he is not in charge. 😀

Many thanks to DazzlinDonna, who is so much more than just my SEO Buddy, for pointing me to this nifty video plugin. 😀

  1. The more things change the more they stay the same. I went to a Jiffy Lube while on vacation recently for an oil change. They recommended other work that “needed to be done ASAP”. Naturally I declined. When I returned from vacation I took the car to my mechanic who told me none of what they recommended was necessary.

    I wonder if they would have done the work if I had paid for it.

  2. @Jamison – Unfortunately I think you are right in thinking would they have actually done the work in the end anyway! Im so fed up with garages and their dishonesty, you take your car to a ‘professional’ because you are not skilled enough in that area to sort it out for yourself and they blatently lie to you – Imagine going to a doctor ‘Im concerned about this lump on my elbow’ – ‘Yes Im afraid you foot will need amputating!’ lol

  3. This is what happens when dishonesty meets ignorance. The ignorance is on the part of the customers who have no idea how their vehicles work. The garages know this, and take advantage of it. If people were more educated about how these processes are done, and knew what to look for, the garages wouldn’t have as much room for dishonesty. It takes two to tango.
