We had an incident at a local oil change place (actually our second since moving here) that caused Maxx to be down for two days. They broke a radiator coolant ‘T’ tube connection when moving the coolant reservoir out of the way to pull the filter.
Over 6 years in Florida this never happened. Oil changes quick and simple at a place called America’s Oil Express, just like any other Jiffy Lube, Grease Monkey, etc. No issues, no broken parts, and fast service. Here in Greenville? One problem after another. No oil at one place, no filter at another, and this one, broken parts and dead car. Oh and the line, “we’re not SAE Mechanics, so we can’t work on Minis” was a fun one. Your a dang oil change place…what else but mechanics work there!?!?
Where are y’all going to change your oil? Dealerships? Yourselves? I’d rather not change it myself, issues with recycling the oil and all that mess and I already do both my bikes and another high performance car. Maxx deserves better, but I need to weight my time vs his needs and really a pro shop should be able to handle this quickly and without drama.
Thanks in advance,
Maxx’s occupants, Mike and Milissa
