Took car in for oil/filter change and "multipoint inspection" performed at dealer. Regular maintenance only; functioning fine. Was told there was corrosion on positive battery cable, which they replaced for approx. $70. Next day car was slow starting. Minor electrical issues too (seats not auto adjusting, same with auto door locks). Within 4 days car would not start. Had battery jump, drove car to dealer, and was told battery needed to be replaced, at cost of approx. $170. Seemed odd, since inspection only days earlier included battery test and report indicated battery was fine. Should I continue to trust this dealer's service department? Is it possible they damaged my battery, or are being dishonest about performing the inspection the week before?
