    I really don't understand the point of making appointments if you have to wait in line. They must get their advice from doctor's offices. How about you tell me that if I bring it in a week from now at 2pm, I'll be first in line ahead of someone that just showed up otherwise. I see dealerships bragging all the time about their "express services" acting like you'll be in and out in 15 minutes. Yeah, right.

    The car will be in and out in 15 minutes. The owner? Not so much . . .

    I'm expecting ~30% depreciation for 20k mi and 1yr of aging, the rear-ending notwithstanding.

    You know, my Kia Service department is pretty posh and they always give me a free oil change, and a car wash after with tire shine and everything.They have a killer coffee machine that makes fresh Mocha, iced Coffee, Vanilla Mocha...and the beans are ground right in front of you. I don't mind sitting in the waiting room, watching Netflix on the Free WiFi, and by the time my Cafe' Mocha is finished...so is my car.
