Merchant's Auto

I spoke with the man last week about getting my oil changed and fuel injection service completed, we worked out a nice deal so that it would only run me about $70.  First mistake is I should have gotten it in writing but I will be sure to do that next time.  After they complete what I think is what we talked about I was in for a bigger surprise, the check engine light came on.  I have to take the car back on Thursday so he can take it to the dealership and they can determine why the light is on.  Then I start to leave and realized that they oil change was never completed, so I go back inside and remind him of the kind deal we made and he has them do the oil change.  Well I take the car to Advance Auto to connect it to the computer and they tell me that the check engine light could be on because the fuel service was not done correctly and that there may be issues with the oil change as well.  Let's just say that I am over it!  Oh yeah and they didn't tell me that they recommend the belts be replaced, I had to read that on the service report.  Which belts, all of them and the labor will run you about $142 and he can get a good deal on the parts.  If you think that I am going to let you service my truck again, you have lost your mind.  Especially when I came in to get regular/preventative maintenance done in the first place.  The sad part is that I haven't used Merchant's since I was in college with my first car and I probably won't use them again!

On a better note....when I was driving to Advance I found another mall.  Man this place is dangerous!  Within a 10 mile radius of my house there are 3 malls that I have found.  I didn't stop because I might need my money for car repairs...but when the time comes to shop I will have to hit mall #3!  It was the bright in my day.
