Worst place to go. I went there because they had a sign for a $20.00 oil change and when all was said and done, it cost me $45.00. I didn??t get anything special done and got the basic oil and oil filter. The $ 20.00 that they had on the sign did not include a filter or service or anything other than the oil price (for basic Pennzoil). When I asked why so much, they said because I have 4x4 drive. ITS A 4 CYL! My small 4cyl., truck takes the same amount of oil as a car and uses a $3.00 oil filter. There is absolutely no difference is price for a car and my truck. When I change the oil myself its costs the same as changing the oil on my girlfriends Jetta. Somehow they charged me an extra $15.00 just because the truck has a 4X4 option. Never go to Jiffy Lube. Waste of money for poor service. The $45.00 I paid included the $8 they discounted me for being a first time customer!

jiffy lube is a horrible place to take your car. they will hire anybody who knows nothing about cars. i know for a fact they have blown over 5 engines in the past year. they have very low standards, and just want to make money off of you. they try to sell you everything, even if you don't need it. $50 for an oil change? thats outrageous. take your car to a real shop for an oil change, and they can check everything else over. I can't emphasise enough how poorly they run there shop.
