A tip for those about to get their regular service done
I got my 15,000 mile service done last week - just an oil change and tire rotation. (It was free, my first service done at the dealership point-of-purchase...)
I would have been far better off paying someone else to do it. ANYONE else.
When I arrived home (about 35 miles), 2 of the 4 hubcaps were missing. The remaining 2 were barely holding on. The dealership did a tire rotation but failed to "snap in" the hubcaps when reinstalling, resulting in the loss of 2 VERY EXPENSIVE hubcaps.
Dealership is taking no responsibility for the error AT ALL. Going to have to pay for their mistake myself.
ALWAYS check your dealership's work. ALWAYS. And if you can go to an alternate service provider who is known for standing behind their work, go there instead.
From now until the day I sell this car, (HOPEFULLY VERY SOON), I will be doing my own maintenance. And the few jobs I need a dealership to do (recalls etc) will require a road trip and a hotel stay. I will *NEVER* bring my car(s) to the local dealership, EVER AGAIN.
If you have a professional, conscientious local dealership, consider yourself VERY LUCKY.
