I choose to get my oil changed at this location, because of the staff knowledge, service, quick, and very reasonable. I also told my wife, and she got her oil change there to.

Kelly and Josaiah were absolutely outstanding! I’d been having a bad day, and they were so kind and uplifting that it made me smile and changed the trajectory of my mood. I commute 130 miles everyday for work and knowing that my car is now safer makes me happy. Kelly conveyed my mileage and when a transmission fluid change is recommended. I decided to proceed with the transmission fluid as well as a synthetic oil change. It all happened very fast and again, these two guys were just awesome!

Justin was very attentive and friendly when providing service to my car. My oil change was quick, professional, and attentive. The safety checks were done in a professional manner. Everyone had a smile and was very alert and quick to answer and fix and potential problems. Overall a very enjoyable and pleasant experience.

The pricing was shocking & the fact that I had an up charge for “European” oil when the car is a 2013 & std 5w-30 is what the owners manual cites.
