after speaking to a friend, i realized one issue that crops up with them covering the warranty:  it will probably only apply to that one mechanic when it comes to repairs.  what if i move before that 20,000 mile coverage is up?  tomorrow morning i'm going to call and just tell them point blank that i want a written warranty in my hands detailing the terms and extending to work done by any mechanic local to where I'm at or it's going to have to go through my dealership.  i have a feeling he'll balk at that so i guess i should prepare myself for a battle now.   icon_cry

Yeah, the guy at Geico told me that I should insist that they restore my warranty since i have 40,000 miles and it's not quite 3 years old, while the warranty is for 60,000 or 5 years.  The manager at JL was pretty adamant that they wanted to do this through their mechanic and outside the insurance company. 

okay, while i was writing this, the JL manager called and I asked him about the warranty concerns.  he told me he'd put it in writing that they would match the remainder of the warranty from Toyota on my engine and that they'd make sure the engine was a 2005 or newer with less than 40,000 miles on it.  I'll of course have another mechanic give it a thorough going over after they do the work to make sure it's good, though.  without starting a huge war over this that might drag on for a while, i think this is a fair settlement at this point.

Okay, the manager at Jiffy Lube just called to say that they're replacing the engine and covering all the costs.  However, during the course of our discussion, he told me two things that make me a little concerned:

1) They're doing this out of pocket so he doesn't have to go through his insurance company.

2) They're going to replace it with a used engine with the same or less mileage (I had 40,000 on mine). 

I was under the impression they'd replace it with a new engine this whole time.  I'm just a bit concerned.  Any thoughts from anyone who's been in this situation before?



I'd call my insurance company and get their take on this.  Though it's not unheard of for someone to do this, it's in your best interests to make sure that what they're doing is legit.  And, I would also insist that it be done by the dealership instead.

 icon_lol  i'm on the phone with geico as i write this.  I just don't know what my rights in this type of situation encompass.  It sounds like the general manager who i've been dealing with is dead set on not using my dealership, although i haven't pushed the matter as I just found out about 20 minutes ago that they were going to cover it.  he assures me that this is standard procedure in this situation and that they will put it in writing that if anything happens with that engine, they'll handle it.

Good luck.  I hope everything works out.  It sounds like you are covering all of your bases.

I have never taken my car to a Jiffy Lube and would never, ever do so.  So many horror stories from that place.  I wouldn't trust them to put gas in my car without somehow fucking it up.

I have now learned that lesson the hard way.  icon_frown  From now on I'll go to the dealership or to my mechanic. 
8807  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Call me Schleprock on: May 18, 2008, 09:22:11 PM
Regarding Geico's involvement, that may be an issue.  However, I've had nothing but good experiences with them so I'm hoping this doesn't break that streak of good luck.  Plus, my "private lawyer"  slywink said it was a good idea in that Geico would be better prepared to take them to court for the repair charges if JL doesn't pay up.

As a humorous side note, I just called the dealership where I bought the car and told them the story.  The mechanic laughed and told me that Jiffy Lube is one of their biggest clients because they do this kind of crap pretty often.  He said he's never heard of a customer NOT getting Jiffy Lube to pay in cases exactly like mine (problem occurs same day as oil change).  He also told me to insist that I have Toyota do the repair as having the garage to which Jiffy Lube towed it for the estimate will completely void my warranty (it's got 40,000 miles on it and the warranty is for 60,000/5 years on the power train).  Plus he warned me that they will most likely try to put some crap engine in it that I have no known history for.  Unfortunately, JL is closed for the day, but it's gonna be my first phone call in the morning, by god!

I'm also more worried now about JL's honesty as the mechanic from JL that looked at it this morning told me he'd been there for 6 years and had never seen this happen before.  Either his outlet is squeaky clean and the others in the area are the toyota guy was referring to, or he's just fibbing.  If it's the latter, it means they're probably looking to screw me.   icon_frown

8809  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Call me Schleprock...now with updates on: May 18, 2008, 08:43:10 PM
Just another day in the life of Hepcat:

So I take my car in for it's 3000 mile oil change yesterday.  I go to a neighborhood Jiffy Lube that I've used for the past 6 years.  I have them change the oil, put in a new cabin air filter and refill the wiper fluid (which they forgot to do).   Then I go to the Y and straight home.  A total of about 4 miles.  Later that night, I go over to a friend's house for a movie night.  It's about an 11 mile drive.  On the way home via the expressway, my oil light goes on and my car starts making this knocking sound.  I can't pull over immediately as I'm in the middle of a Chicago highway with tons of construction and no shoulder to speak of.  After about 5 miles of construction, I get to a place where I can pull over...at which point my car immediately dies.  I look under my car and lo and behold, there's a trail of oil. 

I call Geico roadside assistance and they send a tow truck to get me and drop my car off at a local garage that geico uses.  Then I get a ride home from guy and hit the sack.  At 9am I ride my bike to the garage and set up an diagnostic appointment to verify what I fear to the be the case:  blown engine.  In the meantime, the Jiffy Lube that screwed me has opened so I call to tell them what's happened.  They immediately tell me, "We're sending our head mechanice right now.  Don't let anyone touch it until he verifies the problem!"  That's no issue as the back up at the garage is pretty extreme and they've told me they won't be able to look at my auto for at least 2 to 3 hours. 

The mechanic arrives.  I've already called Zarathud (another lawyer from OO that I game with) and woke his sorry ass up to ask for legal advice.  He gives me the best bit of wisdom that can be had in this situation:  document EVERYTHING.  So I whip out my cell phone and record an audio file with the mechanic's name.  I then ask what he's doing through every step of his inspection.  He informs me (which I recorded) that my car has no oil left (Thanks, I didn't know that  Roll Eyes ) and that it appears the oil plug was loose.  He then tells me that he believes the engine is shot.  I make him repeat all this into my phone.  I then call the assistant manager at Jiffy Lube that I've been dealing with and he tells me that they're going to tow my car to their mechanic for a more thorough inspection, but that it won't be open until tomorrow.  I call Geico (I have mechanical breakdown insurance, but I consider this to be Jiffy Lube's fault entirely so I haven't officially made a claim) and give them all this info, including the name of the assistant manager, his phone number, the name of the auto shop it's being taken to and their phone number).  Then I call back the assistant manager at Jiffy Lube and ask about a rental.  He says he'll check with his manager and about 15 minutes later he calls back to tell me that I can pick up a rental car at Hertz rental agency next to them first thing Monday morning.

So now I'm sitting here, fuming.  I keep imagining all the ways they're going to try to wriggle out of being responsible for this.  However, considering that the problem occurred the same day I had the oil change and in less than 30 miles after getting it done, I honestly feel that it's THEIR fault. 

 icon_mad

Now I have to take a day off work to get the rental car and then head over to their mechanics to watch over their shoulder to make sure they don't try to screw me over.  Geico is supposed to have a claims adjuster call me in the morning to go over what my rights in this matter with the Jiffy Lube and my insurance policy.  I don't want to have Geico pay for it as it will only increase my insurance payments (I believe), although if worse comes to worse, I imagine that with the document trail I've assembled (including my original receipt from Jiffy Lube) should give Geico all they need to pursue this matter in court if Jiffy Lube tries to find an out by claiming...well, I don't know WHAT they could claim, to be honest.  They messed up, plain and simple. 

I'm also worried that even if they own up to it, they'll try to replace my Toyota Matrix engine with only 40,000 miles on it with some used piece of crap that they took from a junker with 100,000 miles or more on it.

Sorry, just had to vent.  It's not been a good day.   icon_frown


update 8:30am, May 19th - Jiffy Lube is getting my rental car but while talking to the assistant manager handling this I was told I would have to pay for it but that they would reimburse me.  I was told this would all be in writing.  A bit of a surprise, but I guess I can understand due to them wanting to make sure I'm not trying to pull one over on them.  As long as I have it in writing that I'll be reimbursed, I won't make a big stink on this matter.

I also called the auto shop where they towed it and spoke to the head technician.  He was extremely nice, which caught me off guard.  I explained that he was just to give it an inspection as I needed the dealer to do any repairs because of the existing warranty terms (voided if a non-Toyota dealer replaces the part due to the powertrain warranty remaining on the vehicle).  He told me he would see if that was actually the case as he expressed some doubts that that was true.  I've had some issues with the dealer being less than truthful in past work on my car, so I said to go ahead and check with Toyota for me on this matter.  The shop my car is at has a pretty high satisfaction rating on review sites.

update 12:50pm, May 19th - Picked up my rental car.  Had the manager put it down in writing that I was to be reimbursed for it.  Then I stopped by the auto shop where my car was towed.  They hadn't looked at it yet, so no news there.  A Geico claims adjuster called and told me I was doing everything in the right order and that if JL didn't own up to this, Geico would cover it under my mechanical breakdown policy and then go after JL themselves with their much larger team of lawyers (my team of lawyers is primarily engaged with my many sexual harrasment suits as well as performing impromptu versions of A Streetcar Named Desire whenever I snap my fingers).  He did mention that JL usually covers the cost in situations like this and that he saw no way they could reasonably avoid responsibility for it.

update 8:30am, May 20th - The rest of the survivors have eaten Stan.  I fear I'm next as I know these thighs of mine are MAGNIFICENT!

...wait, sorry...wrong log.  Where were we?  Oh yes.  Manager of JL has turned me over to his insurance agency after my demands that the repairs be done by my dealership.  This will take longer, but I think it's the best course of action in that it will allow me to keep my warranties intact.

So they put in a suggestion box in the kitchen for employees.  Primarily it's intended for suggestions on coffee flavors and snacks that people might like to have in the break room.  However, over the last few weeks I've been dropping in my own anonymous suggestions.  So far I've asked for:

1) An office Bowflex placed in the copy room so I can work on my "guns" while waiting for color copies.

2) An office "Helper Monkey" dressed in a red bellhop outfit that we could train to deliver notes to other cubicles, as well as act as our first line of defense in case of a terrorist attack.

3) An office Hang Glider that would be parked on the roof and available for employee use during lunch hours.

4) More Cowbell


Anyone else have suggestions that could turn this "workplace" into more of a "funplace"?

It's not that the newer stuff is better, though, it's just sad to see so many people fall into the cycle of dumping on SNL because it's become common to do so. 

please realize that some of us formed this opinion outside of any social gestalt.  we honestly think the new SNL has sucked for years.  If everyone were to suddenly start thinking it was brilliant, those of us who truly dislike the show would most likely seek asylum in countries that currently do not have electricity.   icon_wink

p.s. of course i'm just teasing (for the most part).  however, i can't help but see the horrid Jimmy Fallon, those annoying cheerleader skits with the misused Will Ferrell, and the numerous attempts at trying to coin a catchphrase that overpowers everything else when i mull over SNL's recent history (recent being 10 years or less, to me).

...then again, we always should remember that the impetus behind many of my posts can be directly traced back to my childhood love of lead based paints.

But it does seem you're basing your opinions on sketches and actors that haven't been on the show in nearly 10 years.  Again, dismissing it without any current viewings to back it up.

Then, in the interest of fairness, I promise to watch it this weekend. 

But I swear to God, if there's even ONE skit based around awkward teenagers running their own private video/radio/internet show out of their basement, i'm coming for you...

I have a friend who moved from Florida to Alaska if you can believe it. Loves it there.

I moved from Canada to Florida.  I think I got the better end of the deal.

The heat, humidity, hurricanes, and giant bugs in Florida say no.  To each his own, though.

I agree.  I can handle cold just fine.  Mind-searing heat combined with ridiculous humidity?  Not so much.

And all the old people.  Don't forget about the old people.

the old people i can take....

.....

...literally, i mean.  i've been practicing in the ring.  any of those geriatric gangstas tries to run up on me, i'm unleashing these twin piledrivers!
