https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-avpx8UTakIHave you ever visited a workshop just for a normal service or oil change, and ended up spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars? Can you trust someone else to take care of your car?

 

These guys went undercover to investigate, and revealed being ripped off at a popular oil-change chain. They are going in for the advertised US$19.99 oil change, but wait till you see the charges all 3 of them ended up paying. And was the work even done? Watch the video to find out.

 

After you watch the video, i guess the moral of the story is to make sure you know your car well enough, and keep records of your servicings. Also, will be good if you just stand around and watch them do the servicing. Will also be good to visit car forums(like mycarforum, duhh....) and get feedback of workshops you wish to visit.

 

So the next time you visit a workshop for a simple oil change, you might wanna just insist on just the oil change alone if you know your car is doing just fine :)

    Yes, yes, I'm about four months late to this trend and you'll need to excuse me as I don't lurk about on TikTok. But just as the Roman General Fabius clenched victory in the Punic Wars against Carthage by constantly biding for time, perhaps this blog post can also benefit from a bit of added time and hindsight. If you're a geriatric old fart like me, you might not have heard about this as well - but apparently girlfriends/wives around the world were finding out in the last months that their
