—Motorcycle and auto DIY mechanic since teenager here—
I brought my 8 month old vehicle in for 5000mi oil change and tire rotation deal that was gifted to me by a friend.
Prior to dropping off, I placed a small mark on two of the wheels. When I came to pick up the vehicle, the marked wheels were in the same position on the vehicle.
I thought, perhaps they simply forgot to rotate the tires, so I went back into the office and asked the proprietor if the tires had been rotated. He looked me straight in the face and said, “Yes…”
Now, I’m wondering if the oil was really changed, and if so, was it truly full synthetic (more expensive) oil ??? I just checked the dipstick (3 miles later) and when wiped on a paper towel it is amber color with grey around the edges.
Can anyone verify that this is new, full synthetic oil?
Moral of the story: Caveat emptor and life is full of disappointment
