Is Your Vehicle's Oil Change Being Done Right?


When people look at oil change prices and see a wide range of low to high fees, they are often shocked.  Like cars, not all oil changes are created equal, for each vehicle has different oil requirements, and synthetic oils and specialty filters are often pricier than standard oils and conventional filters.


At Express Oil Change & Tire Center, we don’t use oil changes as a loss leader like other places do. We don’t cut corners or sacrifice anything, for we believe in doing the job right. Yes, that means that our oil change costs are a bit higher, but you know you’re getting quality products and high value from our team.


Some of these things we do differently at Express Oil Change & Tire Center are as follows:

  • We use Chevron lubricants, and use nothing but factory approved filters.

  • We follow everything by the factory book, specific to your vehicle.

  • We provide visual and qualified inspections with a written report back appearing on the invoice.

  • We use the right oil recommended by the factory.

  • All filters we use are all factory approved and will fit correctly. Many are aftermarket, but factory approved.

  • You can rest assured that all plugs will be secured without leaks.

  • We will check and top off all vital fluids while doing our most popular 17-point oil change service.

  • We will not recommend unneeded service without proper qualifications.  


Remember, you get what you pay for. For example, Chevron is our primary oil that we use because people trust their products. As a result, our prices are approximately 20% more than the lower priced oil change shops, but you’ll have peace of mind the service will be done correctly. With us, you will get the best oil change possible for the money paid.


Our clients prefer us for value and understand that higher quality costs a little more. Here is what one of our clients had to say about the oil change team at Express Oil Change & Tire Center:


Ian was outstanding-courteous, knowledgeable, informative. He had a very nice demeanor which I very much appreciated. Jeff, as always is service oriented and professional.” -- Anonymous
