Kelly in Plaistow, NH Website
Complaint Form Inoperable
First off I tried to do a
complaint through the Jiffy Lube website and every time I hit submit
it gave a runtime error. So no I got the is email address.
I got my car serviced on March
5, 2012 at the Jiffy Lube in Plaistow NH. They changed my oil and also
my rear license plate lights. I since then got gas last night at about
5:45pm and check my oil when I finished. To my surprise my dipstick
was reading almost empty. As you can assume I was very angry. I went
right down to the Jiffy Lube that did my original service. The
gentleman behind the counter was really nice (unfortunately I did not
get his name) he really wanted to help me and understood my
frustration. He went right over to Rusty (RPR1491 or MJM1491) who did
the original job. Rusty came angrily through the door stating I never
let a car out until it is filled. I just replied I just checked my oil
down the street and it was empty. He refused to check it in front of
me or let anyone else near the car as well as pulled it into a bay
behind an SUV so I could not see what he was doing. He came back and
said I checked it a few times and it is half full. And then very
rudely spoke to me (demeaning me) and said "Do you even know how to
check you oil, sweetheart?" Of course I know how to check my oil, yes
I was on a flat surface. I said it cannot be half full, it was barely
showing on the dipstick only a mile down the street. He then went back
put oil in and said it only took a half a quart. I understand it is my
word against his, and he is the technician, but I would not be as
angry as I am if that was the truth, because you have the policy that
if I need a top off before my 4500 miles is up you do it for free. I
am angry because something bad could have happened to my car, or even
worse to me or my family in the car. I understand mistakes happen, in
the business I work in mistakes happen, and same effects bad things
can happen when these mistakes happen. I wish he would of just
apologized and said it was a busy night I must of overlooked it or
something rather than just basically call me a stupid girl, because
that is how I felt when I left, even more infuriated for this guy
saying I do not know what I am talking about. Needless to say, me, my
family or friends will not be going back to any Jiffy Lube in the
 Cynthia in Alexandria, LA Promised
I am writing in response to a
complaint that I have previously submitted. The district manager
followed up on the complaint and assured me that he would submit the
required information that was needed in order for me to receive a full
refund. The service was performed on 2-6-12. As of yet I have not
received the refund and I am questioning whether you received this
information. I am to receive a refund of $65.38. I was hoping to
have received the refund by now. Please let me know what has been

Overfilled Fluid Destroys Components
Hi I went to the Jiffy Lube
at 5940 S. Highway 94 in St. Charles MO last week and they overfilled
my power steering fluid. There is a lot of fluid leakage out of the
container. It is filled to the top although the dip stick indicated
that it is way too much fluid. It leaked onto my alternator which is
directly below it and it no longer will maintain a charge. I replaced
the battery before I noticed the fluid leakage but it did not fix the
problem. I took it to a mechanic and he said my alternator was fried
because of the fluid leakage. I called the manager at the location
that did the work and he just said it was probably just an old
alternator and offered no solution to fix the problem. He did not even
offer to take the excess fluid out. I will never return as a customer
until this is dealt with. A new alternator will cost me $150.00.
Robert in Sparks, NV Sexual Harassment
This is a very serious issue we had at
Jiffy Lube Friday, March 16, 2012.
Our daughter took her car for an oil
change. This is the first time she has ever done this and the first
time for her new car. I was told the person doing the oil change was
Ashton. He was very inappropriate towards her. He kept making sexual
comments about her looks and her body and asking her personal
questions. He took her name, address and phone number from the invoice
and entered it in his smart-phone. He
kept trying to get her alone off to the side to talk to her. Our
daughter just turned 18 and is still in high school. This man Ashton
appeared to be about 30? This man kept persisting and making comments
until our daughter began to cry. At that time our daughters friend
stepped in to find out what was going on.
I came home from work to find her crying
and upset about what happened. She is scared about what might happen
since this person Ashton now has her name, number and our address. I
spoke to the manager Jeremy and he had sent Ashton home after he found
out what happened. He assured me Ashton would be fired. But the damage
is done in my opinion. He has her personal information and there is no
telling what he may do. We are going to contact the Sparks police
department and at the least file a complaint. After that we will
decide what to do next. This is a very serious violation of the trust
we had in patronizing that business.
I use to work for
Jiffy lube I know for a fact that if they don't have the right oil
filter they will say that they do an change it any way. They also do
not give there employees the proper break times.
 Doug in
Sacramento, CA Employee
I' am an employee of jiffylube.
I work in the sacramento, CA area, this jiffylube is owned by "Broadbase."
Never have I worked for a jiffylube that is not owned by broadbase,
but I will tell you I have been working there for about 3 years now
and from the first day on the job ive had nothing but problems with
how they run these stores. First off....I' am a certified
professional technician and certified in every category by Ford, which
makes me the most experienced. Though I' am not the manager which I
still wonder why. To get to the point Jiffylube is TRASH!! Jiffylube
recommends services such as engine flush's, oil system cleaners,
powersteering flush's and also fuel system cleanings(which don't do
what you would think they do) as a matter of fact, most manufacturers
HIGHLY do not recommend engine flushs, and if one is performed it will
void warranty. I tell every customer service advisor about the
services that they shouldn't be selling or "recommending." Yet they
will not listen because its all about money to them(at least the
managers and higher ups in the company) and why would they listen to
me, what do I know anyways right?? second...my first manager at the
company verbally harassed(and more) every employee there. The manager
was fired previously from Jiffylube for harassment but got RE-HIRED
after broadbase took over. Later on I got transferred to another
store. I had no problems at this shop at all besides the regional
managers. The regional managers of BROADBASE are more than likely the
worst people you will ever meet. They only come to the stores to yell
at everyone for pointless matters. I will not get into too much detail
but they treat every employee like trash. It is not just me who has
this opinion as it is every employee at stores of broadbase jiffylube.
To top it off...most people would think of a car care franchise as
being upscale and being able to pay their employees well. Not the
case, we get paid minimum wage maybe a little more. I'm not
complaining yes at least I have a job, but with what they expect from
us which they EXPECT us to devote every waking minute to jiffylube and
dealing with all of their BULLS**** minimum wage is not enough. I
honestly think it looks poorly against them and makes them more of a
cheapy company. Regardless do not give them you're business, they are
a terrible company and they on the daily harass their employees and
make us work like we are in a sweatshop. WORST COMPANY EVER!
 Ashley in Columbia, SC
Significant Verbal Abuse
I went to location #1204 @ 2400 Augusta Hwy West Columbia, SC 29169 on
Feb. 20,2012. Upon arrival I was the ONLY customer at 10:00 a.m. and
was quoted 10-15 minutes for a basic oil change. During this time I
realized that more than 15 minutes had passed when I noticed the
technicians attempting to start my vehicle with no luck. I then
realized that my battery was dead and they were attempting to recharge
it. My battery is brand new. I have had not 1 issue with it until
here. I am assuming the techs may have had the ignition switch turn
on and therefore drained the battery. However, no one has even came
in to let me know any of this. I am now there until approx 10:53 a.m.
(printed on the invoice) and they still never told me about this. I
just spent $45.38 for a poorly preformed job. I then have to leave
because I am now late for work. I get home that evening to realize
that the attendant asked if I wanted a new sticker showing the mileage
of course I said yes just to realize they didn't even do that. They
never checked my tire pressure they never cleaned the outside windows
they never vacuumed anything. none of the things on the invoice they
said they did were NOT completed.
I then contact a
gentleman by the name of Adam Tatum. It took a few calls to get him
to call back but he did. He assured me that someone would call me
back that day and that never happened. I then called him back and he
did have some manager call we with no resolution. I was told he would
speak with his crew about this. No I am sorry, please come back.
NOTHING!!!!! I then call the 1-800-344-6933 for the Jiffy Lube pledge
of satisfaction. Well, that is not the case. I contacted them the
1st time last week after a 37 minute hold and the lady I spoke with
was so unprofessional I was ashamed that I ever used this company.
The lack of care or customer service is the most unprofessional I have
EVER experienced. When I was told they would notify the franchise I
waited until today, this being more than 7 business days since the
last call. Again, waited 27 minutes this time to speak to
customer service person #3784
who should NOT be in customer service.
She was belittling, rude and might I say the most poorly spoken
induvidual I have dealt with before. She plainly told me that there is
NOTHING she is going to do,
that there is no supervisors in the office and what I get is what I
She told me that if I was still unhappy I should just call the BBB or
file a small claims case in court.
WOW, all I wanted at the most was an apology and maybe a free change
some time. I will not continue with this but to sum it up she told me
to stop speaking and she hung up on me. I was never loud, rude or
unprofessional at ANY point and to be spoken to in that manner is not
right. If I EVER spoke to a guest that way I would not have a job.
My case # is --
if it was actually filed. I am so very
disappointed and in awe that a company such as this is employing such
workers. Shame on HR, they may need to interview more thoroughly. I
just hope that someone who may care reads this and addresses it. I
will make sure to not endure such humiliation and insults ever again.
I thank you for your time and I hope to see some resolution come from
Jiffy Lube is
one gruop of shop that needs to be closed down , because they hae a
group of burger flippers who call themselves auto tech. . with mangers
that have no concept of leadership. The first thing Jiffy Lube need
to do is ,put their mangers through some type of leadership training
.most of them could'nt lead a dog with a leash. And as a employee of
the company it sickens me .I came to Jiffy Lube during the layoffs
that many suffered in recent years ,I am a ASE Certified auto tech and
to see some of the things that tell customers,are totally
misleading.And to put someone with no automotive training under the
hood of a costly vehicle is frieghting
 Nagesh in Minneapolis, MN Will
Not Fix Problem
I went to Jiffy lube for the
first time for oil change. The agent recommended few other services.
Since agent convinced me to go for all the recommended services, I
proceeded with the recommended services. However, I started getting
noise immediately after service. Next day the noise was increased. I
went to jiffy lube and requested to look in to the issue. Since I am
getting this noise after service, there should be something wrong with
the service. The agent looked into that issue, and told that it was
not due to the services provided by the jiffy lube and there was some
major problem and I need to go to full time service center. I showed
my vehicle to different service center, they confirmed that the noise
is due to serpent belt which was replaced by jiffy lube. I went again
to jiffy lube and told the same issue but the agent at jiffy lube
defended that it was not their fault and reluctant to fix the issue. I
went to full time service center and fixed the issue. Iíve to pay
double the amount without any issue. I feel very bad. Kindly review
this issue and do needful.
Jiffy lube didn't tighten
the oil cap. It cost 139 bucks at the dealership to fix that mess.
Jiffy lube gave me a rebate that expired FIVE days after the service.
When I complained to the manager tabout this, he simply said if you
had mailed it in before the due date, you would have gotten the
rebate. THIS is how this evil corporation does business?
in Lowell, MA Stole Cell Phone
A friend of mine
went to Jiffy Lube in Lowell, MA. Sheís been a going there for
years. Yesterday, she went in for an oil change. She always drives
her car into the bay. Yesterday, the technician said he would drive
it in, so she got out and went in to wait. After the oil change, they
tried to sell her all kinds of adders like a transmission flush,
radiator flush, etc. She declined, though they were persistent. When
she got in her car to leave, she realized her cell phone was gone.
She went back in and they told her she must have dropped it. She had
just used it when she pulled in and put in the door pocket. She
didnít drop it. They stole it. The police are looking into it.
Needless to say, Jiffy Lube has lost a loyal customer, and I for one
will never go to any Jiffy Lube ever again.
Lars in Tacoma, WA Air Filter Unattached
I stopped spending my hard
earned $$ @JL 6 yrs ago.I had my 96 Dodge"serviced"@the 72nd&Pacific,Tacoma
Wa "Franchise"(oil&filter). 2 days later I began to hear strange
rattling noises -from under the hood........& whattaya know my air
filter housing is resting between the engine & wheel well.
Unable to reattach my AF housing,I discovered
 John in
Tigard, OR Work Not Done
It's been three days since having Jiffy lube change my oil, my car has
been driven very little since. Today I decided to check the oil
anticipating a road trip, and I was surprised to find it 1/2 quart
low. Being suspicious I checked the atf to find it was 3 pints low.
#1 they didn't fill my oil to top
#2 they lied or are incompetent, saying my atf was ok ( I specifically
asked them during oil change)
#3 I know my differential leaks, but I don't know if they topped it
#4 what else did they not do?
For starters they're incompetence could cost me a transmission, for
100,00 miles they (Tigard) have changed my oil, does this mean my atf
has never been topped up?
 Bill in Boerne, TX Untimely
Delays & Broken Key
I went to Boerne, TX Jiffy
Lube location today at 11:00 AM for an OIL change. When I got to the
location, there were no vehicles in the oil change stalls. I waited
until an employee who was trying to solicit business with a sign on
the road that goes by the location notice my truck. A five minute wait
to even talk to someone. Then another 10 until someone calls me to a
computer and goes through the sales routine -- AND all I wanted was an
OIL change!!!! He finished by saying the car would be ready in 5
minutes -- total time so far 30 minutes with another anticipated 5
more minutes. AND to think there were NO vehicles in the stalls when I
arrived. After a total time of 65 minutes, I am told my vehicle is
ready -- it was driven out of the change stall 10 minutes earlier. Go
to the cashier window and I am presented with my ignition key in two
parts - someone dropped the keys and the key broke. The cashier did
offer to get me a new key - I declined and the cashier did give me a
discount (not sufficient to cover the cost of a new key). After I got
to my house, I discover that the dashboard "needs air" light is on -
so I have to go to a nearby gas station to get air in my tires (one
was well below the specifications - on doorframe) and then I discover
2 of the 4 stem covers are missing. This was my experience which can
only be described as TERRIBLE and also caused me two additional
unanticipated jobs -- a requirement to get a new key made at the
dealership and then a completely unnecessary trip to get air in my
Tanner in Conway, SC Broke Door Handle
I went to the Jiffy Lube, located in
Conway, SC (store # 3343) to get a basic oil change and leave with a
broken door handle on my driver side. I did not have a broken door
handle until I let them pull my car into the garage, They said it was
like that prior to me arriving but I have never had a problem with my
door handle before then. I told them the story that it was not broke
until they told me and the Manager said we cant do anything about it
because it was broke prior to getting here and I could not hear it
anymore that they would not believe me, so I just went inside to pay.
And besides the door mess, my check engine light has not shut off
since I left yesterday afternoon in disappointment.
 Jeff in Pembroke Pines, FL Price
Screwed in pembroke pines
Florida. Told I needed synthetic and that it would be $82 which is $40
more than the ford dealer but I agreed as I was traveling and short on
time. However, at check put they charged an extra $22 for extra oil!
Quoted one price and charged another.

 Jeffrey in Henderson, NV Oil
After not following my
wife's advice, I took my one year old Hyundai sonata to the local
jiffy lube on eastern ave in Henderson nv. We had a
problem there once before with my previous model Hyundai. That car
leaked after being serviced. The oil pan nut was not tightened.
Since I was in a hurry and did not want to go to the dealer as my wife
suggested, I went back to the same jiffy lube Low and behold.
Oil all over my garage
I brought the car back and
was told the filter had overflowed, of some other bs I did not
even get we are sorry. Just that they had 2 cars in there system with
the same license plate number Obviously they can't even enter
numbers and letters correctly. A simple we are sorry would have
ended this, but I guess that would be asking too much!!
Lisa in Naples, FL Synthetic Oil Not
Hi I recently got an oil
change at the jiffy lube in naples florida the tech told me I needed a
synthetic oil change because I have a prius hybrid. So instead of
paying $30 I paid $75. When I called the manager he told me Heíd send
me a Ĺ off coupon. In the end I was still be out of $40. Why would I
trust them again. I feel I should have gotten a refund for the
difference of the synthetic compared to the regular oil change.
Michael in Middleton, RI Fabricated
I want to report an unethical Jiffy Lube
operation in Middleton, RI (#1442). I was just scammed for $70 and
received none of the promised discounts (military, coupons, etc). The
schemers attempted to get me for more, but I quickly realized that all
their "discoveries" of things "wrong" with my vehicle were completely
#1 they showed me METAL SHAVINGS on my rear
differential drain plug, claiming it was because it hadn't been
serviced for two years. They also said the oil was very old and in
poor condition. But I just discovered that my wife has been getting
the truck serviced elsewhere and that the rear differential was just
serviced this passed August and the vehicle has had very little
mileage put on since.
#2 after I fell for the rear differential
scam, they brought me my oil cap filled with "ENGINE SLUDGE BUILDUP."
the "mechanic" tried to convince me it had built up in my motor and
wanted to sell me a flushing product. I'm a Navy helicopter pilot. I
know what engine sludge looks like and the substance was clearly a
white grease they had smeared into the cap. The grease had been mixed
with another petroleum based product, but it was clean, had never been
subjected to any kind of heat or friction, and it was colder to the
touch than the plastic cap. It was at this point I realized that I
had been had. I told them I wanted the grease cleaned out of my cap
and no other work done.
The "signature service" failed to vacuum
anything or even check my tire pressure--which they told me was 35,
but wrote 32 on the paperwork. I watched them. They never checked
it. I didn't believe my wife when she told me about something similar
happening to her in Jacksonville, FL, but now I do.
I am contacting my credit card company to
stop payment on the $69.99 charge for the rear differential fluid that
didn't need to be serviced. If you don't fix this problem within 72
hours, I will 1) file a complaint with the BBB, 2) inform all 2520 of
my personal contacts via Facebook and email to ensure that everyone of
them knows what a scummy organization Jiffy Lube has become, and 3) I
will also file a complaint with the Navy's Regional Command to have
this store put on the local off limits list.
Ernest in Alhambra, CA Destroyed
We have several concerns
with the way our situation is being handled by the Alhambra CA
location. First complaint is the negative & insultave attitude of the
store manager. When we followed up with the store manager about the
damage to our car we were immediately met with defense and argument.
The car went in for a
regular oil change. The technician sold Ernest a service to the
differential. Less than a week later the car started making a grinding
noise from the back. I noticed that the inside of one of the back
tire's rim was covered in fluid. Ernest took the car back since it
appear to have something to do with the recent service. Ernest waited
while the technicians look the car over. After a considerable amount
of time, it was explained that someone had tampered with the
differential and let out the fluid. They said they re-filled and the
car is ready to go. They never showed Ernest the tampered seal.
The next day the car
started the grinding noise again. At this time we noticed puddles of
fluid on our driveway. In one of the puddles we found small pieces
that appear to have come from the car. We took the car to our mechanic
and he determine that is most likely that the tech who did the
original service did not seal it properly. Even though the fluid was
replaced and re-sealed the second time we went back to Jiffy Lube, the
damage was already done and caused a leak.
A complaint was filed and
the store manager called our mechanic to obtain details of the
situation. When we followed up on 02/15, the manager stated that he
himself determine that they are not liable for the damage. When I
asked for an explanation he said that it was suspicious that the fluid
leaked after they re-filled it the second time. I asked how that was
relavent and did not receive a clear response. I then stated that it
was irrelavent since the damage was caused by the original service not
being done correctly. The manager insisted that someone had
malicously tampered with it after the original service. I protested
stating that was highly unlikely. If someone wanted to be malicious
they are easier more discrete ways rather than take the extra time to
go under the car with tools. I also find it hard to accept that it
would be a coincidence that someone chose to tamper with the
differential after it had just been service. Manager insisted that was
the only possibility and he has made his final decision. If I didn't
like it I can sue him.
I demanded that he gives me
a reasonable excuse for him not to take liability for the damage
caused by not properly performing the service. He repeated the same
arguments. When I mentioned that of someone wanted to be malicious it
would have been easier to put sugar in the gas tank. His reply "I bet
you know all about getting sugar in your tank." He also implied that I
was wasting my time since he already made his decision and I can take
him to court if I'm not happy. He argued that he knew for a fact that
the seals were tampered with and it is not possible that there was any
error on their part. I question him why when the car was taken back
didn't they mentioned the possibility of damage from the lack of
fluid. He stated they don't make those sorts of recommendations and
that they are not experts in repairs. I responded that was because
they were not going to make a profit. He replied "Just to prove you
wrong, we run diagnostics and provide information on repairs that may
be needed that they don't perform." I pointed out the contridiction
in his statement. He then said that anyone with any level of
mechanical knowledge would know if the fluids were low there could be
damaged. I asked him again why his technicians did not mention this
since they should know as he just explained. He said it was Ernest
responsiblity to know that. That they don't look at anything else than
what the service requires. I explained that Ernest is not
mechanically inclined and that they took advantage of that. He stated
that Ernest has had the differential services various times in the
last 5 years. I believe that was excessive. He replied that
manufactures recommendation is every 15k miles and that he went more
than 30k miles in between services. I looked it up, recommendation is
40k/2 years. Regardless this would not be a valid argument supporting
his decision not to accept liability for not performing the most
current service properly.
The manager said he didn't
have to talk to me since I am not the register owner of the car. He
kept asking what was my relationship with Ernest. I strongly feel that
not only is that personal it is irrelevant. Ernest was present during
the call over the speaker. The manager had already stated it was his
determination they are not responsible for the damage. Later in our
conversation he said it wasn't up to him and his hands were tied. That
I am wasting his time carrying on with this argument. When I asked to
speak to someone else he said to call the number we had already
called. I asked for a specific name, he replied that he just gets an
email and he doesn't know who sends them. After I continued demanding
a name he finally gave me his manager's name & number but the number
was not valid.
It is our strong belief
that the during the original service the seals were not tighten. The
seals from the service perform a prior year were broken during this
recent service and not re-sealed. This would explain why the seals
were broken when we return the car with low fluids the week after. The
technicians should have immediately shown Ernest the condition of the
differential prior to re-filling and sealing if it in fact had
tampering. That it is highly unlikely someone would chose to tampered
with the differential after it had recently serviced. Jiffy lube
Alhambra is the only location that has ever performed service on the
differential. Jiffy Lube had serviced the differential only one week
before the damage. The Alhambra location has talked Ernest into
numerous unnecessary services. Proper customer service dictates that
the technicians should have mentioned the possibility of damage due to
the lack of fluid. Ernest ignorance of mechanics was taken advantage
of by not doing so and by selling a service that was not needed. The
store manager made several rude remarks and provided no reasonable
explanation for his decision or any other of my inquiries.
We kindly request that this
matter be resolved in an expedited manner. We request that we be
reimburse for the cost of repairs, rental car, and a refund for the
service. Due to sales goals & job pressure, Jiffy Lube employees have
a tendency of taking adavantage of those who are not mechanically
inclined. Ernest has had several services done that were not needed.
Although he has been a regular and loyal customer due to these
services he was not treated as one. I strongly suggest due to the
treatment he received that additional amends be made on top of the
We would appreciate your
urgent attention to this matter. We would like to have this resolved
within 3 days so that we may avoid any further action.
 Bill Delray in Beach, FL Overfilled
Oil Destroys Engine
I write this letter in desperation and
due to the lack of response or action by Jiffy Lube. Currently many
attempts to contact or to receive response on this matter have been
left unanswered. Several attempts have been made to Jiffy Lube
management personnel to correct this problem caused by Jiffy Lube. To
date and after several inquiries no action has been taken to correct
this situation even though promise after promise has been made. I
appeal to you for help before making this into a legal matter for the
courts. If it is Jiffy Lubes position to continue to be nonresponsive
then I will have no other choice but to seek reimbursement for all
costs incurred, due to Jiffy Lubes negligence to my vehicle during
this service visit. Below again is a brief encounter of events:
On August 15th 2011 at
2:30pm Mr. Justin Tomson brought my 2005 Mercury Mariner into Jiffy
Lube Store #1753 in Delray Beach for service, after a short distance
the vehicle started acting bad so he pulled over and had the vehicle
towed back to Tallahassee. After the vehicle arrived back to
Tallahassee it was taken to Bobís Auto Repair to find the problem.
After the inspection it was found Jiffy Lube had overfilled the oil by
3 quarts. The engine had a total of 8 quarts installed by Jiffy Lube
thus causing the engine to fail. A notarized statement from Bobís Auto
repair and Mr. Tomson had previously been sent to Jiffy Lube along
with a report from United Appraisals but nothing seems to get done.
At this time Jiffy Lube has left me
alternative but to refer this matter to the court. We have tried in
vain not to end with this option. My on interest has been to have my
vehicle repaired. If there is any way you can help please let me know.
