    My buddy worked for Jiffy Lube. He told his manager to go %#$@ himself cause he got tired of lying to honest people....Funny they rehired him 2 weeks later cause he was the fastest(they told him he was allowed to stop lying too!). Never believe what those guys say though. We had a serpentine belt replaces, 3 months later a different (new) guy said you need a new belt, i told him to @#% off, and he got cocky saying "dont blame me for future probs"... aaah the computer records really shut him up

    C'mon man, those fast lube places suck. I always take my baby to the dealership or a subaru specialist. What your doing is like buying a ferrari and putting 89 octane gas cause its cheaper.

    True, but then again, if its only something as mediocre as an oil change that you can do in your own garage, then it doesn't make a difference.. going to the dealership for an oilchange is just ripping yourself off since we all know that they use just about the same parts, but rape you in labor fees.(p.s. i'd go to jiffy lube if i had a ferarri, like i said, its only some oil which i change religiously)

    I used to change my own oil, but now use a local Jiffy Lube whom I have come to trust. Basically I ask myself if my time to change the oil is more than the $40 (or whatever) that they charge for a synthetic lube change. (It is.) They also valet my car and clean the glass inside and out, which is a lot more than my Suby dealer does (nothing).
