The belts on the engine are really noisey and squeaky...what can I do?

Have someone adjust their tension and/or replace them.

Rub motor oil on the belts? Yikes! That would likely quiet the noise, but cause more belt slippage.

"Really noisey and squeaky" = slippage. Oil on belt = more slippage.

OK so they change the alternator belt and fix the buttons on the interior lights...I get home and notice my whole driver side is swirl marked! And there's a fat scratch on my hood! Just great, she looks like shit right when I'm about to sell her. I call back the service guy and tell him whats up, he says he's going to talk to his supervisor and see what he can do...never calls back.

I drive to school this morning and the service engine soon light comes on, just great. Another 30 mile drive to the dealer...

Damn, that sucks. I hope you're still under 50,000 miles!
