Anna and I are leaving for Jacksonville, Florida next week, and I want to make sure that my car doesn't explode. It needs a nice tune-up before we hit the road. I know nothing about cars, so could someone suggest a nice place in town that won't rip me off? I've heard some tales of bad experiences with major auto repair chains.

Umm... don't go to Jiffy Lube... my brother went recently and they forgot to replace the oil plug or some shit like that... He has to get a new engine now... heard they've been doing that a lot lately...
aaaand, don't go to Wal-mart...
Where TO go, you ask? I don't know...

(yeah, that was real helpful...)

PepBoys will screw you, from what I hear. I use Firestone, but I'm sure I overpay them. :roll:

My brother lives in Jacksonville. He got a drunk driving citation on his bicycle a few years ago, so watch out for drunken losers on bikes! ;)

Thanks. Sometimes it's good just to know which places to avoid.
