    Always put the car in valet mode when going to the dealer...

    ...and, ... So you took your car in for service, you get it back, it's out of Valet mode/ all you can "prove" is they disconnected the battery for whatever reason. find a new shop or put it out of your mind. We just can't control the situation. Life's too short! Anyway. Good luck. Enjoy the ride, baby!!

    Check your mileage too.... There is no need for those folks to beat on a car while in their cars.... Set the proper expectations with these folks and if something occurs then speak up.

    when i brought my 2011 392 in for oil changes they always added an extra 1/2 to full quart....didnt matter what dealership....happened almost every time....i dont leave the dealership w/o checking the dip stick anymore.............i pay extra for Dr.Buick to do my oil changes now.....rather pay extra for a mechanic who gives a sh*t than an oil change boy who cant even double check his work.

    if i was working on your car and had a shot id maybe burn up a 1/4 tank beating the F out of it too......not professional, but im sure it happens every day.....

    Oil cooler drain, right front. Both "under panels" need to come off, very easy.
