While you wait oil change?

Is there such a thing as a trustworthy while-you-wait oil change place around here?  Don't have the ability to leave the car at the place I usually go.  Won't mind paying a little more if I can be confident they wont upsell me on a bunch or nonsense or forget to screw the drain plug back on.

 If you make an appointment with Nelson's on Dunnel road they will do their best to accommodate you.

Not the cheapest around but scrupulously  honest.

You can usually schedule one at your dealer.  However, it will still take over an hour.

Valvoline on the Route 22 median in Springfield does a pretty thorough while-you-sit-in-the-car service that takes about 20-25 minutes. There are two bays, and usually a car or two in each line, so the whole thing might run up to an hour.

The guys who are now located on Burnet, not far from dehart, did it for me. I liked them. I think it’s S.O. Friendly Service.  (I’ll double check)

i actually went to the valvoline in Menlo Park...to avoid 22.  It did seem like they tried to upsell...but I just refused.

I've gone to that Valvoline on 22. They're efficient and polite. I do think they've got an upselling script they are obligated to try. I just tell them I have more involved maintenance done by my regular mechanic and they don't press the issue.

also, you can often get a groupon for valvoline....you have to search Springfield of Edison separate based on the location you want to go to.

In Springfield there is an excellent one on Mountain Ave, where Jiffy Lube used to be.  They NEVER try to sell you anything, are fast and efficient and cheap.
