Honda messed up on my oil

Ok so today i brought my car to honda to have the extended warranty maintenance done. They are supposed to replace the distributor, cap and rotor, wires, and plugs all for free. What they didnt tell me is that they also change the oil. I get back to pick up my car and they tell me they couldnt replace the distributor because it was an aftermarket one and then they tell me they changed the oil. I run synthetic and they put honda conventional oil in there. Arent they supposed to check with the customer before they do that. I put synthetic back in there, hope it didnt hurt anything.

Re: Honda messed up on my oil

yes they are supposed to ask you if you want your oil changed, they did for me anyways. and no it more than likely didnt mess anything up by putting conventional oil in there as long as you replaced it before driving alot.

No i could have done it. I never let anyone else touch my car the thing is they were supposed to do all this stuff for free with this warranty i found out about but all they ended up doing was changing my oil that i just changed 1000 miles ago.

Warranty only covers repairs, not maintenance.

Yes, they should have. You need some of these tags:

Re: Honda messed up on my oil

the maintenance he got done is not a warranty related issue. there was a callback on alot of 5th gens for emissions, where you can get your plugs, wires, cap, and rotor changed for free.

where did you get that tag edge?
