Save Time, Reduce Waste Oil & Maintenance Costs

Smart Oil Changes

What are smart oil changes? Keeping up with the quickly evolving, government mandated emissions standards, car companies have engineered their vehicles to increase oil change intervals by huge margins. Since 2006, the 3 month/3,000 mile oil change has been almost completely phased out. These changes in oil technology have affected every manufacturer's recommendations and requirements for maintenance and oil change intervals. Vehicles have come a long way in the last 20 years specifically, trying to keep up with these increased regulations. Don't just take our word for it either. Click on the links below to scratch the surface on this constantly evolving topic. We follow factory recommended oil ratings (as per your Owner's Manual), in order to ensure the longevity of your vehicle. This is a very complex issue, that most automotive technicians don't even understand. We have studied the issue in-depth, and received extensive training to make it easy for our customers!

The best part, it doesn't cost you any more money!

New Customer Inspections 

Our free, comprehensive, new customer inspection goes above and beyond a basic inspection you'll receive anywhere else. In addition to the mechanical inspection you will find at any shop, we also include a computer & electronics inspection. Modern cars are growing into rolling computers & every new model has an additional number of added electronics. That means a growing percentage of each new model is not being regularly inspected until there's a failure of course. Inspecting the computer and electronics in our free, comprehensive, new customer inspection will allow us to establish a strong baseline. We'll monitor anything we find on all following visits to ensure you get the best value on every service or repair, before it gets expensive. Never be surprised with a huge repair or maintenance bill again!
