    They really try to take advantage of women and I know a lot of women who cave. I just say OK thanks for the info.

      I agree with you Clover. I always used to feel pressured and uncomfortable whenever I got anything done to my car. I just got a "new" used car last April, so I take it to the dealership where I got it. I pay a little more than I used to, but I'm confident the Acura dealership knows how to work on Acuras. And I've never been pressured to do anything other than what I came in to do.

    I just had my oil changed at Goodyear and although they tried to sell me synethic oil, I refused and told them I wanted 10-40. The guy was so nice, he went down the street and purchased 5 qts. and only charged me the regular oil change price. I was allowed to go into the garage and see the leak under my car which was my transmission hose, I feel I saved lots of $$ by just seeing this and talking to the guys there who gave me advice on how to take care of the problem and what will happen if I don't.
