So going into my dealership today to get quoted on fluids. I talk to the service manager about a kid who had a RA under warranty, did his own Oil change. Didn't tighten down the drain plug. His warranty was declined because of user error, but his insurance claimed it under Some negligence Clause and there paying Mitsubishi to put in a new motor. Who would of thunk it?

Seems like something that comprehensive coverage might cover. Just know that the kid will be paying his deductible and have a claim on his record.

interested in how the insurance company is claiming this...not the service manager's name or your buddy's name. Don't know them...want to see the insurance claim

confession: never replaced crush washer in my life, never had an oil plug leak in my life. Sounds like something else would have caused the leak, but hey, at least it's covered.

Before Teh Evoh Ecks, I also had the same confession. This car is the only one I've ever put a crush washer on, and my other car, I still don't do it. Could be because the Evo is my first brand new car... the other car I bought with 11k miles on it and it cost 1/5 as much as the Evo :p

I believe that SP Mitsu told you that but I do not believe a word that the SP Mitsu servicing department says. Unless there are new managers in the servicing department....

I worked there for about a week back when I got laid off 6 years ago. They basically tried to train me to lie to people, make up stories & take women for all I could with garbage repairs (wipers, door seals, etc). This was the training to be a "service advisor". It was a joke. . . I walked & vowed to never spend a dime at SP Mitsu again.
