My wife got her car inspected at Jack's. There were a few cars ahead of us, so we left the car and got some coffee, and when we came back, about $30 in quarters was missing. The car had been locked when we left it, and we'd left the key with the station attendant. How do we know the money was missing? Because as we parked the car, my wife opened up the armrest compartment and suggested we take the quarters out. I persuaded her not to. Why would a community gas station want to ruin its reputation for loose change, I argued. When she opened the compartment, there were two $10 rolls of quarters in it and a big mound of loose quarters. When we picked up the car, ONE of the rolls was missing, and the mound was smaller. Could someone have walked in off the street, grabbed the key out of the office, and stolen the quarters? In theory. But then why take just ONE roll? It looks like the work of someone who didn't want their thievery noticed but didn't anticipate that we would have JUST done an inventory of the quarters in the compartment.

Cons: Thieves

The guys that work here are the best! They'll help anyone and give you free car advice. This is also a full-service station and the prices are just about the cheapest in Cambridge. You can also have a car inspected here and the wait is usually not too bad. Located at the end of Mass Ave right before you cross into Arlington. Usually 20 cents a gallon cheaper than Mobil a block away.
