I really hate it when mechanics or other service technicians take advantage of people. American Lube Fast Store #0147 on Washington Avenue pulled a fast one on my youngest son.
The oil in the car our 18 year old son drives needed changing. He took it by American Lube Fast for us and the technicians insisted he also needed to get the Transmission Fluid Exchanged ($109.99) & the Engine Flushed ($59.99). Even though according to the maintenance manual for the car it was NO where near time for the Transmission Fluid to be changed. According to the Honda Accord Manuel the Transmission fluid doesn't need to be replaced until 8 years or 120,000 miles. Our car is barely 5 years old and only has 55,042 miles on it. We did NOT WANT the Transmission Fluid Exchanged or the Engine Flushed. We only wanted the oil changed ($31.99). They did it anyway costing us an additional $169.98 We will NOT be back to American Lube Fast after being ripped off like this.
My husband went down there to complain but of course since they bullied an 18 year old into signing off on it there was nothing we could do.
