Change Your Oil Or Rely On The Experts?

With our technicians you don’t ever need to change your oil or repair your car on your own.  Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can fix almost any problem and perform regular maintenance, so why change your own oil?

 

Much debate has always gone on about whether or not it’s beneficial to change your own oil.  We took the liberty to do a little research of our own to see if we could settle this little quarrel.  Maybe the most controversial issue involved is the cost of doing it yourself versus bringing your vehicle to the shop.  We’ve found that the savings of doing it your self isn’t so great.  When you factor in all of the costs of supplies and equipment that you pay for:

 

·      A New filter

·      New oil

·      A drip pan

·      The disposal of your used oil

 

and not to mention the valuable time you could be wasting!  When all is considered the savings come out to be little to none.  Plus many auto repair shops like us will offer incentives and specials to decrease the cost of your oil change service. 

 

Taking all of these factors into consideration, the balance in this argument begins to shift towards the repair shop or oil change center.  We guarantee the job will always be done quickly and correctly every time.  Our conclusion is that unless you like just getting your hands dirty, there really isn’t any reason not to bring your vehicle to us to provide the oil change service for you.  So bring your vehicle to us for your next oil change and we will provide you with a convenient and efficient experience!
