Jiffy Lube - Auto Belts That Were Checked as Part of Service / Turned Out to Be Very Unsafe
TUCSON, ARIZONA -- I have been taking my car to Jiffy for oil changes for years and they have always marked the info given back to you on items checked that were "OK" or done. Well ,during my last oil change everything was basically checked OK except that they noticed that there was a little but of moisture on the transmission seal. Now the problem is ...is that they noticed this but didn't notice that my belts were in dire need of being changed. Yet, they marked that they were "OK" and they were not .I had a screeching noise that would sound every time I stopped and then proceeded.
I finally got tired of this noise and had a mechanic check it out. Indeed the noise was from the belts being so worn they were cracked and almost transparent when held up to the sun. I was told I was lucky that they didn't give out while on the interstate when I take my son to work. I feel they jeopardized my safety and that of anyone with me. I will never go to any Jiffy Lube ever. The Jiffy Lube I went to was in Tucson AZ, located on Ajo Way and So.6th Ave.
