I told you about Motor Oil Matters (MOM) in this previous post. Last week I had the opportunity to go and get the oil changed on my van. It was just over the recommended time/ miles. First I checked the MOM website to see if they had suggestion for an oil change shop in my area. Alas they did not so I decided to head to the closest oil change facility. That happens to be at a superstore retail location. I normally don't use that facility but I had some other shopping to do so it was convenient.
I was pleasantly surprised that there wasn't much of a line. A super polite gentleman came out and got my information. I had the MOM checklist pulled up on my smartphone and I asked him a few of the questions. He was so patient and helpful! He went over the various oil change options and went as far as to tell me which ones weren't worth the price. I felt safe leaving my vehicle in his hands.
Once inside the store I double checked that I would be getting a new oil filter and that the oil being used was the correct viscosity and was API- Licensed.
The kids and I took our time in the store and picked up all the items we needed. We were able to pay for our items and the oil change all at one time. The oil change was finished in less than 45 minutes. I left with a receipt in hand and a clear understanding of the service my vehicle had and the next time it should be done. I have a high mileage vehicle and I need to do everything I can to keep it running smoothly.
