I was told it would be a thirty minute wait and I waited for 2 hours. It wouldn’t have been so bad of the staff had just come out and told us why the wait was so long. But they didn’t say anything and once you are in line, it is difficult/impossible to get out of the line and leave.

I told the representative, we were from out of town. My son in our home state is a master mechanic. Everything that was mentioned that the miles on the vehicle recommended, would be done, as soon as I got home. We still had to listen to all services being offered. I just wanted an oil change. My wife and I left before my son had an opening.

Was able to get in quickly. Had my oil in stock and was able to get my coolant system flushed without taking much extra time. Ran smoother this time than the last couple times I’ve stopped.
