There is no better way to fully convey the speed of an oil change at Douglas Tire & Auto/Blue Valley Goodyear than the following sentence: five quarts of oil come out, five quarts of oil go in. Along with your massive oil transfusion, your oil change will include a filter replacement to aptly prepare vehicles for local puttering, cross-country distance destruction, and months of road warrioring in the Australian Outback.
For more than 50 years, the skilled technicians at Fry’s Car Care have primped and preened trusty petrol steeds for maximum pavement-pounding performance. During the full-service oil change, an ASE-certified mechanic will replace old, worn-out engine blood with up to five quarts of new Mobil oil and switch out grimy filters with standard, unsullied substitutions. Afterward, the technician will rotate tread-worn tires, which will come in handy when drag racing a neighboring child’s Power Wheel. The appointment culminates with a thorough safety inspection—certifying that each four-wheeled locomotive is healthy and able to transport all passengers and back-seat drivers. Call ahead to schedule your car’s next springtime engine cleaning.
The trill of an air wrench. The falsetto song of a squeegee against glass. The sounds of a stock-car repair pit drift from JC's Speedy Lube, where crews work to focus that same level of efficiency on vehicles returning to the road. Along with expeditious oil changes, mechanics perform light mechanical work and employ Genisys scanners to diagnose future problems. Visitors wait for their steel steeds to return to them, passing the time in a waiting area with free WiFi, a flat-screen TV, and steaming cups of Keurig coffee. JC's Speedy Lube also collects an ever-changing stable of used cars, which wow prospective owners with low mileage numbers and past owners who never drove them very far back in time.
While an expert staff leads customers through an inventory of new and pre-owned Hyundais outside, Shawnee Mission Hyundai's service department hones in on parts and appearances. Hyundai-certified technicians wield factory-approved tools as they change oil and filters, replace batteries and brake pads, and tackle other auto maintenance and repairs. The shop also lavishes cars with hand washes and detailing packages that target surface imperfections with clay bars and protect exteriors with paint sealant. Drivers can await their rides in one of two lounges stocked with flat-screen televisions, magazines, free WiFi, and complimentary coffee. A play area keeps children from assessing the Blue Book value on their Matchbox cars.
