Seven years after NBC4’s I-Team busted the one of the nation's biggest car repair chains, investigative reporter Joel Grover went back under the hood.
An insider told him: "If anything, it's gotten worse."

But seven of 11 Jiffy Lubes we tested told our undercover customers that our car needed services.
The map embedded below shows what each location suggested for our test car.
Four locations recommended only an oil change, while seven locations recommended additional services. One location's said we needed services that totaled $697.
