It is a great story.Great story. But when you think about it, another great joy is not having to go to the gas station all the time. We used to go twice every week, at least once per car. Now we probably go once every couple of months. So every couple of months you're avoiding the worst consumer experience 15 times! The net result is that, over the course of a year, you get to keep three days of your life and you can lower your stress levels at the same time. And you pay less!
That was my thought. Even manual transmission fluid needs refreshing.Ranting because he doesn't think he needs to change transmission fluid on a manual trans car??
I had already gone through the manual on my own, and I could not make sense of it. The issue is not about getting service that I needed (which I'm perfectly fine doing), it was that I went to "someone" who I thought I could trust, but realized that I couldn't (in this case, the store manager). After I questioned the service, no one made a case for it; e.g., "Yes, you REALLY do need it at this point." Instead, I got the "preventative service" responsive. Having to find a smaller shop and build a relationship for the sole purpose of not getting ripped off elsewhere blows my mind too. If everything in life was like this, we would be stuck in a state of "paralysis analysis".Chain repair shops are to be avoided... But you went through the manual with the service writer when the services were selected. In the future will you complain about service the Volt will need?
