If they look old,they probably have not been changed,she was just took by a shyster mechanic,the only way to confront this would be go to the mechanic,and tell him you are having problems, with them,as you and i know they have a lifetime warranty on them,tell him you need the invoice so you can replace them,,,,this will get him,when he can,t produce it,with the proper date,then if he doe,s not want to cooperate with you,report him to the BBB.
