I have no doubt about that point. My personal fav, (although not exactly mechanical advice) was when I owned a Miata and for some reason at the dealership asked the parts guy the cost of a new oil filter. Like 13 bucks. Replied that I could get a Motorcraft for 5. He told me that would void my warranty (I know) but the fun part was explaining to him that the original filter said FoMoCo on it-Ford was a Miata partner and made the engine, lol. Where do they find these people? In all fairness there are good dealers and good mechanics at dealers but not everyone of them. Sometimes money gets in the way of honesty. Just like the WEB ya gotta pay attention and learn who to trust. k
