LOL, I love any opportunity to bash walmart! :rofl:

http://consumerist.com/tag/walmart/?i=5020643&t=wal+mart-fails-to-change-your-oil-and-lies-about-it

Bottom Line: If you haven't watched this film, you don't have an informed opinion and really don't understand why I won't shop at Walmart (or Sam's Club). Any retard can tell you they sell diapers cheaper than anywhere else, but what's the cost of these low prices?

http://www.walmartmovie.com/

btw, what do you think will happen to prices when all the stores are walmarts, or super-duper walmarts and sam's clubs?
i bet the prices at walmarts in small towns (where they've driven out all the competition) are not a low as one next to a Target store.
personally, i don't want to live in a world without the little mom and pop or family run businesses.

Wow... I haven't been to a Walmart in years, but I have driven by the Walmart in the story (assuming it is the one in Idaho Falls, ID).

But they're changing their logo, so all the negative press is going to go away :) http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25445674/

That's like sticking an air freshner in a porta-john.

Sure most big companies have business pratices that I don't agree with, but Walmart has that special blend of morale free business pratices and bottom of the barrel market that just makes such a wonderful brew for me.

Opps I meant to say moral free business practices...but morale free works pretty well also. Always seems like a bunch of sad sacks or down troden teenagers working there (more so then most retailers).

worst thing is, she knew he was on a road trip and would likely never have a chance to complain or get a refund if he hadn't checked right then before leaving. BITCH!! EFF WALMART!

Not saying that I am on Wal Mart's side, but as a side note, Civic's do require a manual reset of the oil life monitor. It is not a system that actually looks at the oil, but at the factors that lead to oil degradation.

Basically all cars with oil life monitors require manual reseting...doesn't excuse not actually changing the oil.
