$170 for oil change? That is a looooong reach.

I also noticed a few days after that the wheel well area was coated in oil.
It was a big mess. They could have cleaned it up a bit.
The starter button was also pressed too hard and now I have to depress it further to start the car. These are little issues but they all add up.
I never enjoy handing my car over to strangers because it always comes back different.

Had mine done at Galpin in Los Angeles. Fast and easy. Oil was included, but not a full oil change. The car had a full oil change about 100 miles prior. Dealer topped it off with more Castrol Syntec.
