Young lady who lives next to a condo we sold last year had this happen
to her, and she WORKS at that Wal Mart! She had a little Toyota
something-or-other, had the oil changed at work, drain plug was cross
threaded and when it was tough to install, out came the air gun, and by
gosh we got it tight now, Bubba! Except all the oil leaked out and the
engine blew . . .

After eight months of increasingly acrimonious correspondence, Wal
Mart's final offer was to buy her a junkyard engine and let her pay to
have it installed - by them!

Despite my howls of protest, and against my wife's legal advice, that's
exactly what she opted to do - so they bought a junkyard engine and
charged her to install it. It lasted about three months, and then that
one blew up, too, and she went and bought another car.

Believe it or not, she still works at the same Wal Mart!

Do not EVER let monkey lads touch your Audi - EVER!!!!
