There’s a difference between “oil change” and “oil service”?

There’s a difference between “oil change” and “oil service”?

  The “quick lube” 20 minute oil change has been a long term standard in the automotive industry. Providing a fast oil change sounds great, but ultimately is a disservice to the customer and the vehicle. Here at Quality Automotive Servicing in Truckee, CA, that used to be our standard too. We charged a minimal “quick lube” price for a quick oil change that did not include any kind of inspection. However, the day came when we provided that service to a customer, and as she left our parking lot her serpentine belt broke. She asked how we could have missed such a thing! Explaining she would have rather had us taken the time to inspect her car since it was already in the shop, and avoided such an awful breakdown.

It's Dark Out There: Increase Your Vision on The Roadway

RESTORE YOUR HEADLIGHTS TO SEE WILDLIFE! My neighbor's daughter was driving carefully that night, watching for deer and other animals on the roadway.  But out of the dark crossed a coyote and her pup.  A thousand pounds of Toyota and her were about to collide.  Luckily she zipped across the road to safety.  Was it luck or animal instinct? Daylight savings time ends November 1st and days will become shorter and shorter.  Daylight is yielding to darkness and poorly lit mountain roads can be hazardous for your vehicle and wildlife. For your safety and the life of an animal out on the roadway, it’s important to have bright headlights.    Over the years of use, headlights will loose clarity and hinder your long distance view on dark Sierra roads such as Highway 89 toward Squaw Valley.  The result could be deadly for a neighborhood pet or wild animal.  A ... read more
