    I like how he conveniently remembered the oil in his trunk after he'd already driven all that way...

    Why do people take their cars in to get the oil changed? I think if a person believes that they are responsible enough to have a car, they should also be responsible enough to at least change the oil, it isn't like it's tedious or hard...

    Because a lot of people don't want to spend the time, or don't have the time to do it.

    If Honda built my car, they're good enough to change my oil (Although I still don't see how charging 20 bucks more for an S2K oil change is legit)

    Time, for one. Not everyone has the luxury to put their car on ramps/stands and change their oil the old fashion way. To me, $30 bucks for an oil change is worth it, especially when most shops have a checklist and make sure everything else is operative, like fluids, bulbs, cel's etc.

    When I had a cracked radiator I always had coolant in the car. If you have a problem, delay it until you fix it. No pity here.

    ya gotta remember people,

    This is a BMW owner. Their brains don't function like ours.

    Change oil ? Do something involving slight amounts of labor ? Are you kidding me ?! The dealer didn't CALL ME and tell me my oil was leaking, so how was I supposed to know?
