The cost of any replacement part required during labor is not included in this deal.
Winners of Meineke's 2010 Gold Certificate for Customer Satisfaction, the ASE-certified automotive repairmen at Meineke Car Care Center on Cypress Creek Parkway keep vehicles running smoothly. Each oil change begins when mechanics force the motor to spit out its used oil and gargle mouthwash for 30 seconds before receiving a new standard filter and up to 5 quarts of conventional motor oil. The car whisperers then inspect the engine for potential technical issues that could affect performance or safety, and check the road steed's fluids to make sure each is filled to its proper level. Tires are rotated, ensuring that each one receives an equal amount of wear and a chance to control the car's undercarriage radio. After 20–30 minutes, owners take back the reins of their healthy cars and commute with the confidence afforded by four months of roadside assistance.
