Went there recently because Jiffy Lube was full and I'll I can say is...expect to wait and recieve poor service. Also, even the best english speaker there is barely comprehendable. Don't go there!

I took my Mazda Tribute 2001 to have the oil changed. They wanted me to replace the air filter. I refused since it had been replaced only 5,000 miles before and it looked only a little dirty. They said that they would knock the loose dirt off of it into the trash can and return it to the housing. When I took my car to Midas for it's next service and other repairs, they found the air filter crushed inside the housing. They showed it to me, and it had indeed been crushed, twisted, and the rubber on the sides had been torn. It clearly hadn't been replaced correctly, and the damage to the air filter was caused by ignorance or malice. Both of these reasons are unacceptable for a place that is supposed to provide professional service and maintenance to cars.
Not long after I had my car "serviced" at EZ Lube, Bakersfield experienced severe dust storms and I was unlucky enough to drive through one very bad one on Old River Road. I now understand why my car was running rough for several trips after the dust storms. I suspect some damage has now been done to my car, since the wrecked air filter probably passed grit, dirt, sand, etc. into parts that can't tolerate that junk.
I advise you that if you take your car here, it is in danger of being damaged by unskilled techs or vindictive personnel. The few $$ savings doesn't justify the damage to your car and the eventual shorter life time. Cars cost thousands of dollars now, why be cheap just to ruin your investment? 100 oil changes equals from 300,000 - 500,000 miles. EZ Lube will save you maybe $500 in the long run (on oil changes), but you will be pressured into getting more air filters than you need (among other things), and wind up loosing all that savings and then some. AND, your car may never make the long run, they can very well maim it first.
