Integrity is a word we use a lot around here at AutoFix. We believe in providing our customers with the highest quality auto repair services in Franklin, TN, at affordable prices, and this includes oil changes. Have you been burned by a quick lube shop? You aren’t alone – unfortunately. Those shops are in business to do one thing and that is to make the most money they can in one day. There’s a reason why they run cars and trucks through their bays like an assembly line, and that reason isn’t necessarily good for their customers.
Honest Oil Changes
It isn’t strange for us to say honest oil changes. We believe that oil changes should be customized to each of our clients’ vehicles. Your car may need an oil change every 3,000 miles, which is the standard recommendation. Your spouse’s car might not need one that frequently, however, so why would we encourage you to bring it in at each 3,000 mileage milestone? That’s money going out of your pocket that you don’t need to spend. How often motor oil needs changing depends on several things, including
- The age of your car
- The make and model of the vehicle
- How often you drive it
- How rough you drive it
The latter two directly affect oil change duration. For example, if your spouse only uses her car to drive the kids to and from school and run errands, she might not need an oil change as frequently as you do because you drive in hour’s worth of stop-and-go traffic to and from work every day. This is what we mean by honest oil changes. We’ll talk with you about your vehicle and determine how often you need a lube, oil, and filter.
Honest Reasons for the Oil Change
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bring your vehicle in when it’s time to have the oil changed. You should as close to the mileage milestone as possible. You’ve probably heard this before but it bears repeating: Your oil is your engine’s blood. Without it, your engine will fail. Over time, oil – even synthetic – loses its viscosity and when it does, engine parts begin to break down due to friction and heat. Your oil also gets dirty and can damage engine parts.
To keep your engine running smoothly and extend its life, bring your vehicle into AutoFix in Franklin, TN, for an oil change. Don’t worry, we won’t waste time. We’ll change it quickly as if you were at a quick lube shop, but we’ll change it right the first time. Call us for an oil change today at 615-656-4224.
