Yes - I'm looking at the receipt and would gladly post a copy of it.
CUSTOMER REQUESTS BG REAR DIFFERENTIAL SERVICE
TECH COMPLETED BG REAR DIFFERENTIAL SERVICE
I also watched them do the service although I could have sworn he used Valvoline Syn by what I saw from 20 feet away.
Re: VTM-4 Fluid Change
First of all, Honda doesn't recommend using any additives...
So, the fact that a Honda dealer used an additive in the rear diff. is strike one
And since they used the wrong rear diff. fluid and not the Honda brand, is strike two
And they offered you some silly 3rd party Rear diff. warranty is strike 3
!(Good Luck getting them to pay for your rear diff. if it breaks) Kinda reminds me of those Oil warranties...good luck making a claim.
I have said this before, why is it so hard to use what Honda(not the dealers) tells you?
I've read on this forum where people use anything from, the wrong weight oils, wrong rear Diff. fluid, wrong tranny fluid, wrong recommended tire pressure to SeaFoam.
So, why would anyone think they know better and use these products not endorsed by the experts(Honda)? I'll never know.
This is exactly why I don't like buying used vehicles, you never know what some moron might have dumped in it!
And that could very well be a Honda Dealer.
