I always used my local Jiffy Lube for maintenance of my toad. The difference was the waiting area was right in front of your vehicle, you saw everything that was being done.
If you had a question about the work they would turn around and answer your question.
If I found a Jiffy Lube that uses AMSOL I would have no problem going there. I switched over with the new toad.

This problem isn't just with Jiffy Lubes. We have a local chain in North Texas with a similar reputation. Additionally, they manage to flunk cars for State inspection for repairs where they can make money. Such a large percentage of customers OK the unnecessary repairs that it ends up being a very lucrative business for them.

I've been doing my own oil changes for over 30 years because a factory GM dealership did the same thing - charged me for an oil change that they didn't do. When I do my own, I know exactly what brand of oil and what filter goes in, that the oil change actually gets done and the the pan bolt threads aren't stripped or not put in tight enough. A friend of the family paid to have fan belts replaced at a lube place only to have those fan belts thrown off less than two weeks later, resulting in a tow that she paid for.

Anytime I have any work done at an oil-change place, I stand where I can see my vehicle and watch to see what work is done. Since it is rather obvious that I am watching, they always manage to get it done.
