Lubes in the News

Oil change companies making headlines this week:

• A Rhode Island lube shop gets $20,000 from the government to help with purchasing a rooftop solar cell electrical generator.

• The “Car Doctor” reinforce’s a lube shop’s recommendation to change coolant and transmission fluid.

• Shoe-shine man brightens lives inside the lobby of a Shell Rapid Lube. And does so rent-free. (Neat story!)

• Lube/repair shop donates $3,000-plus to the American Cancer Society.

• Carolina lube technician charged with asking for bribe to okay vehicle inspection. More here and here.

Customer in Tennessee rips shop for not performing services paid for.

• A Tires Plus in Florida offers a 30-minute oil change, then tries to sell customer $1,000 in repairs. (And gets raked across the coals in the process!)
