Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Change Your Own Oil

oil change in Phoenix, AZ

For residents of Phoenix, there’s anywhere from 6 to 8 months of decent weather throughout the year.

During the summer, the pavement can still remain above 100 degrees overnight. Combined with the baking heat of the day, the heat of your engine approaching 200 degrees, and the misery of doing any kind of strenuous manual labor without shelter from the sun, the use of fans, or even air conditioning, the prospect of changing your own oil can be a pretty tall order.

And if you live in an apartment complex that doesn’t have covered parking, you may as well forget it. What’s about a half hour to an hour of work for our ASE-certified mechanics could turn into an uncomfortable, messy, and potentially hazardous job.

When you get an oil change at The Auto Shop, you’ll even find that our oil changes and full oil change services are completely inclusive and highly affordable.

And with our oil change coupons and specials starting at $24.95, never wonder how much an oil change in Phoenix is going to cost you. Instead of getting your hands dirty, this is just another reason to let us handle your next oil change versus taking on the job yourself.

Often times, our oil change price is actually cheaper than the cost of buying your own oil and filter!

For the sheer sake of convenience, you’ll also always be able to trust that your major vehicle repair, vehicle maintenance, or even quick-lube oil job has been done right when you bring your vehicle in at The Auto Shop. And while we’re at it, we can knock out any other vehicle inspection, liquid top-offs, and tire rotations while one of our mechanics takes care of your oil change.

Give us a call at (602) 256-6164 or swing by in person for a quote or to have your questions answered, and you’ll see why so many Phoenicians come to us for their vehicle repair needs.

Servicing most makes and models with a quick turnaround, our shuttle service can have you back to your job in a flash — or you can wait in our comfortable customer lounge while our mechanics give your car the works and have you back on the road in no time!
