This spring I bought a honda mower from Home Depot. Since around June I've had problems with surging and the oil turning dark gray after being changed. Eventually the oil started coming out of the air filter and died. I had done nothing to the mower but changed the oil and cleaned the filter regularly. I called Home Depot and they told me to take it to the local Honda dealer. The guy came out too look at the mower and right away everything was my fault: I hadn't changed the filter enough, I turned the mower over the wrong way, I used it commercially. Well of course the filter will be dirty when there is oil coming through it. I got in to a big argument with him about why he was acting from the get go like my warranty didn't count and he said he'd rather it be paid by warranty cause it paid him $20 more an hour. So why did he act that way in the 1st place?
