I learned about this shop when I bought a prepaid oil change package from a door to door salesman. Yes, I thought that was a bit strange, too. The package was for four oil changes, but also included the usual maintenance checks. These were things like inspecting cooling system, steering and suspension, belts, hoses, rotating tires, and topping off all fluids. The total price of the four visits was $25 (again, that's total), so I figured I couldn't really go wrong with it. So far, I've been very pleased with every part of my experience at the shop. They have been very good about telling me what maintenance they recommend, but without being pushy about it. I drive a 1995 Saturn that's worth maybe $1500, and they seem to understand that anything outside of basic maintenance might not be my biggest priority. On my first visit, they pointed out that I had a cracked radiator. The funny part was that they were replacing a radiator for the exact same car as mine while I was there. They were able to show me the cracked radiator they had removed from the other car, and then compare that to the start of a similar crack in my own radiator. After researching it, I found it's a typical Staurn problem that I didn't know of. Since then, they've been very helpful in monitoring this crack without being too alarmist about it. Overall, they seem very honest, friendly, and reasonable.
