  • I went in for an oil change and got screwed!

    Figured I'd head out this morning and get the old oil changed on the Huegstermobile. There's a place down the street that charges $19.99 betweeen 7 and 10 am. They called me out there and I definitely needed a new serpentine belt, tensioner springs for the belt and a water pump. $232 dollars later...... at least I got that taken care of before winter.

    I hate cars. I wanna get a horse but I'd have to leave for work when I got up and I wouldn't get home until it was time to go to bed. I wouldn't have to worry about $2.50-$3.00 a gal. for gas. I wish I was retired. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] Just saying.

                      Poor huegy.... I think you got taken in. That's how those places make their money by convincing you that you need all sort of extra things. I'm betting I know which place you went to for their Early Bird special too. They try that on me all the time because I'm a girl. Once time they told me I needed a new air filter and I knew they were lying because I had changed it myself the week before. I asked them to pull it and let me take a look at it and the thing barely had any dust on it.

                        Not really, I told them I was having trouble with my power steering and when I opened the hood I saw that I definitely needed a serpentine belt. It was all chewed up. There was evidence of leaking from the water pump too. I'm one of those guys that doesn't let anyone talk me into that crap especially those "new" cabin filters. What a joke those are. The car has 155,000 miles on it and it was definitely due.

                            OK good. I'm glad you didn't get "taken". They always try that on me at those places because I think they think they can get away with that with women. I'm just lucky that my Dad taught me just enough about cars that I can tell when there's something wrong or not.

                            That stinks about having to dump so much money into your car though. If it makes you feel any better, I had to dump more than that into my car due to the brakes and power steering pump. I had been amiss about taking it in for service over the last year or so and needed new pads and rotors on both the front and back. That'll teach me to stick to my maintenance schedule.

                              It took too long for someone to say this. I'm disappointed in all of you.
                              The noise was good, but I thought they phoned in a lot of the funk.
