    (sarcasm) Is that cheaper than what Tesla charges? (/sarcasm)

    Volkswagen keeps sending oil change coupons for our eGolf. Worse yet, now the car itself is reporting it is due for an oil change. I am really curious how they expect to pull that one off.

    I think the only reasonable thing to do is bring the car in and see what happens.

    Now, if there were free alignments, brake fluid flushes every 25K miles, and coolant flushes (all 3 radiators) every 50K miles, we’d have coupons worth having, right there.

    As an aside, Tesla gets $190 for a brake fluid flush and $225 for an alignment. I’ll have Tesla perform the brake flush and a very good independent alignment shop handle that.

    As similar, I love the AAA battery replacement ad I’ve seen a hundred times on YT on all the Tesla channels I watch. Must be triggered because they are ‘car’ channels but talk about wasting money. (Yes, I could have an ICE car, but decreasing odds...)

    (Before you ask, I checked and the fine print rules out EVs! :D)
