NEVER USE Jiffy Lube!!!!

Personally I would NEVER take your MO, much less your lawnmower to Jiffy Lube. They hire young inexperienced children to do the work that a professional should be doing.

A couple years ago my wife took her old 93 Mazda Miata to a Jiffy Lube for an oil change (against my wishes). When she left the Jiffy Lube she noticed her air-bag light was on. I took a look under the hood and some Jiffy Lube "child" had un-hooked both cables that power the air-bag system. And being these cables just don't come apart without effort and the fact that their was no reason the oil tec needed to remove or un-hook these cables, all I could come to the conclusion was this was a childish PRANK, and a prank that could have gotten my wife killed (had she been in a accident). In my opinion this is criminal, but hard to prove who did it.

So my advice to you and anyone else on this board that cares about your life and your car, NEVER USE JIFFY LUBE!

One thing to remember IF you choose to use these "on the go" lube places (some private ones do have a good reputation)...

Know your vehicle, and bring with you all genuine Nissan parts (i.e. oil filter and in this case CVT fluid). Make sure you watch them use your parts (especially the Nissan oil filter and CVT fluid).
When I owned my 300ZXTT, I made sure to bring my own Mobil 1 (15w/50), and Nissan oil filter. I also made sure they installed them, verses their cheep crap.

Just remember that the majority of these "on the go" lube places (especially the big commercial ones, Jiffy Lube, Econo Lube n' Tune, etc) hire untrained oil change monkeys. In most cases these guys are no different than a young pissed-off McDonald’s employee. They don't make much money, and seeing a person with a nice car or SUV that they can't afford themselves, just makes them more likely to screw-up. Today’s generation has a BIG chip on their shoulder, and many are lazy and could care less about others. And these commercial "on the go" lube places have big attorneys and lots of insurance, so taking your nice new $40k vehicle to them is no different than eating at a hole-in-the-wall taco stand in Mexico (i.e. don't be surprised if you get something goes wrong, because they won’t).
