Lots of reasons to do it yourself the right way.
i hear ya!,,but ya can't be paranoid!..what you say is true at a wally mart.however even though it CAN happen at a chevy dealer,it wont happen at
the chevy dealer i use!..they have only top shelf mechanics! lube boys!,and i watch 'em very closely!...for $15.99
the "deal" is basically a "loss" leader,and a marketing ploy to get the car up on a lift,and find OTHER things wrong with it,OR that require further attention!
