Staff was friendly enough, but kept trying to sell me things that were not necessary. I declined, saying I didn't have the money right now, so just the oil change was all I needed (which was overpriced at $44 after tax...) The mechanic there at the shop warns me, saying that something could happen to my car if I didn't let them change my transmission fluid (only $99 he said, but they quickly said they'd knock $20 off when I said I didnt have the money, as if $80 is any easier to come up with if you dont have $100!)

At any rate, less than a week later I'm at a more trusted mechanic shop with my car overheating and a "suspicious" break on the inside of the radiator. While there's nothing to prove, the mechanic did say he wouldn't rule out the possibility someone (purposely or accidently) hitting it with a tool of some sort, since the break was in a place unlikely to have been hit by a rock or other road debris.

I wouldn't take my car back to Formula 1 if it were the last place to get an oil change in the world. While it COULD be coincidence that the radiator went out, I was still unimpressed and put off by the way they kept trying to sell me extra things and insisted that I stay inside the waiting room where I couldn't see my car.

When I went to Formula-1 Fast Lube to get an oil change done, the service was professional, it was completed in a resonable amount of time, the price was good, they did suggest to me other maintenance that I should have done on my vehicle, but they didn't push me to have it done right then.
