I always tell people DO NOT TAKE your car to place other than the
dealership for repairs (if you can't do it yourself).
I witnesed a lot of butchering of fine automobiles when working part
time at such place. Owners of cars would drive away without a lug
nut 'couse one was stripped and never replaced. Small dings or
scratches from tools left on fenders, etc.
One time this guy did an oil change and becouse he was so busy
talking to a friend, forgot to fill it with oil. Drove it into the
parking lot and only then remembered he's forgotten something (the loud
bearing banging told him). He simply filled it in the parking lot
and never told the owner. "Well sir I just took 50,000mi of your cars
life" was not in his mind.
After what I saw I always tell people do not take your cars to
places employing high school auto shop rejects.
At least check your car over before driving off.

1984 4000s quattro (320,000 km under the wrench)
1970 Porsche 911E Targa (also under the wrench)
