Check the BBB for any problems with the place where she brought the Honda for the oil change, just to see if they have any interesting info on them. Probably not, since it's so hard to prove, but worth a look anyway. I worked next to a 'quick oil change' place, and I can't believe the number of problems I heard about from just my co-workers. Didn't tighten oil filter, ruined engine and would not pay to replace, cracked a 4x4 transfer case due to over tightening the drain plug - solution? Bring it in every week, we'll top it off- etc etc. They don't make enough on an oil change to keep the business going, so as you already know, that's why they push other unnecessary services. They are the main reason I change my own oil, I don't trust them to do it. Good luck to you and your daughter, have her take it to the dealer next time for an oil change. I don't like going there either, but at least they should know how to NOT over tighten a drain plug. The quick change places seem to have a big turnover of employees, and no training.
