Where to Get an Oil Change in Indianapolis
Unlike many other major cities around the US, Indianapolis boasts a healthy mix of both blue- and white-collar workers. Drilling down even further, auto mechanics claim a decent-sized piece of that pie, and it’s a good thing: more than 84% of the Indianapolis population commutes to and from work in private automobiles. Indeed, residents here rely on their rides more than most, so when it comes to standard automotive maintenance, there is a slew of shops to choose from. Here are some of the best places for an Indianapolis oil change:
Northwest: My Car Doc | 7208 Dobson St.
It offers three types of oil changes, including standard, high mileage, and full synthetic. Plus, My Car Doc can dispatch mechanics to your home or office to execute changes right on the spot, saving you time and money.
North: Indy Tire Centers | 2646 E. 62nd St.
It topped the Best Auto Repair category in Indianapolis CityVoter’s 2014 list. It also has eight additional locations peppered around central Indiana, and each one boasts comfortable lounge areas and free WiFi.
Far North: Mears Auto & Truck Service | 310 Gradle Dr., Carmel
It backs all qualifying repairs with a 12-month, 12,000-mile guarantee as part of the Certified Auto Repair Worry-Free Nationwide Warranty, which is honored at more than 30,000 repair centers around the US. Safe to say, the technicians are confident in their work.
South: Pomp's Tire Service | 2120 S. Harding St.
It’s a Midwest-based company that’s outlasted the competition since 1939, when the first one opened in Green Bay. Today, ASE-certified technicians tend to cars inside locations across Indiana, Illinois, and several other states.
Farther South: Beck Service Center | 6025 Madison Ave.
The operation has been locally owned since 1977, and an owner is always on site to ensure everything runs smoothly. Its slogan, “Big enough to do the job right, small enough to care,” sums up the team’s work perfectly.
West: Ralph's Muffler & Brakes | 1250 W. 16th St.
This true full-service auto center welcomes all makes and models, new or old, domestic or foreign. The staff balances years of experience with advanced technology, and their handful of locations means you’ll probably run into them no matter what direction you drive.
