Seriously be careful here.

I went here for an oil change because I was overdue one for about 1k miles and was going on a trip up to LA the next day.
So, the oil change was super expensive. I went with the premiere oil which is probably dumb on my part but I wanted to just try it once to see if it was worth it. Compared to other places though...getting it premiere here is still pretty expensive.

Anyway, during the process, they tried to sell services to me, services that I knew I didn't need because I had a trusty friend tune my car up only a year ago and hadn't done much driving since.

So first off, the manager told me I needed to change my spark plugs and took one of my spark plugs and held it next to one of his, different shape and brand. I'm a woman, but that doesn't mean I don't know what my spark plugs should look like. When my friend tuned up my car, I went with him to buy my spark plugs and my friend educated me along the way on what to look for in plugs. The manager was trying to convince me that my spark plugs had gone all out of shape because of the so-called build-up I had. I rejected the offer change my plugs and then he told me that they had a service to clean out the sledge because it was bad for my gas mileage.

Well, I declined on that too because I hadn't notice anything wrong with my gas mileage (and I keep very good track of it). Anyway, so I was happy to just get it done, get out and over with it, so I could go onto enjoy my evening before the trip.

But the next morning, I hop into my car and there's this really random strange hissing sound coming from my engine that my engine had never made before. It came from the exact place that those folks had dug up into and claimed to have the sledge build up. The point being, there was no sound or strange noise coming from my engine prior to going to this shop--how coincidental that it just started only the day after I had taken my car to them?

Don't go here.

I was due for an oil change and the check engine light in my car was on. I went to pep boys and they wanted to charge me to read the check engine light code, so I took it to Valvoline and had them change my oil. I also had them check the check engine light, which was free. It turned out to be a faulty O2 sensor. They replaced it for a reasonable price. The service was great and they did the oil change and repair in a timely manner. I will definitely return when my car needs to be serviced again.

My sister went here to get an oil change for a road trip. Halfway to vegas her oil light came on, and I told her to just keep adding oil to get Vegas. I mean, she was in the middle of the desert. I found a place in vegas called Dons DI Repair and it had good reviews on google. They found out that the oil filter was loose and oil was dripping out. They tightened it for free. I called them to thank them for it. These guys are not going to get such a nice call later when I ring them. BEWARE!

i went to this place for a last minute oil change thinking the prices would be reasonable, but for a simple oil change, they charged me almost 50 dollars. I'm not one to leave after I've already pulled in so I just dealt with it, but I think the price was ridiculous because the dealer's price is even lower.
