I've had this 2004 Honda Accord 4cyl for 5 years. I took it to Meineke for an oil change and now it leaks through the drain plug. If they stripped the plug, are they liable? This car never leaked before. It does have 140,000 miles and the oil is changed just about every 3,000 to 4,000 miles . Driven on the highway daily. Thanks.
