Now I get my oil changed at the auto shop across the street from my work. They've been in business for a long time, same with my work, and they are familiar with all of us so we're all cool :thumbup:
Got my slotted rotors and TRD pads installed by them 2 weeks ago. Excellent job, I think they threw in a free alignment too because my car doesn't veer to the right anymore.
I asked them to rotate tires free of charge, since the wheels would be off anyway. They obliged. Nice guys!
that sounds pretty originalepicwolf said:so the moral of the story is we should do our own oil change? btw, i never been to a jiffy lube. Went to Oil Can Henry a couple of times and they got cameras while the guy is on the bottom of your ride changing oils while you sit in the car checkin him out on the camera.
In all seriousness, those are lame excuses. $30 is not that bad once you add it all up. Only time my oil has not been changed in my garage is at my uncle's shop because we have 7 lifts and Mobil 1/Castrol GTX synthetic motor oil. Never take your car to get oil changes anywhere unless you are on personal terms with the person doing it.LightningRod said:But time consuming, no?
I just take it to the dealer. $30 isn't that bad. Plus the one in my city's EXCELLENT compared to the others and they're quick too. And I get to walk through the showroom and drool on the X-runner. :drool:
