Q:

I have a 2008 infiniti g35x with around 35,000 miles. Should i get the standard oil or the synthetic? Im not really sure what the difference is.

Michael S.  asked on  Mar 22, 2012

A:

Good Morning Michael. That's an excellent question. Our information shows standard API-SAE5W-30 oil for your application. As long as you are getting regular oil changes every 3000-5000 miles, this will be sufficient. If you would like to speak with one of our Service Writers about your specific driving style and conditions to see if the synthetic oil would be a cost effective alternation, please call John or Phil at 513-662-6696. We look forward to becoming your personal mechanics.

Q:

I want to purchase the deal for 3 oil changes for $60. However, I see that the expiration date is in Sept. Is that just for the initial oil change? Or do I have to use all 3 coupons before Sept? I dont think I will need 3 changes before sept. Thanks.

Renee F.  asked on  Mar 22, 2012

A:

Good question Renee. It would be really hard to use 3 oil changes in 6 months. However, Janet and Sherry are easy to talk to and deal with. Keep in good contact with us and we should be able to accommodate your car's schedule. We look forward to serving you. Please call Janet or Sherry for further details. 513-662-6696. Thanks

Q:

I own a Land Rover LR3 and my car holds about double the normal amount of an oil change. Does this deal still apply?

Q:

Do I need an appt? Do I need to leave the car for extended period? If I have to make 2 trips for 1 oil change, gas is not worth it.

Linda P.  asked on  Mar 22, 2012

A:

Great Question! You need to make an appointment. However you can wait on an oil change service. It takes 20 to 40 minutes to perform usually. There are retail stores and restaurants all within walking distance from Jim's Auto Clinic. LInda, if you have questions call Janet and Sherry. Thanks for such a great question. Mark Greve Owner

Q:

The synthetic oil, is that what you use on high mileage cars? I don't know too much about the different oils, but usually when we get an oil change we use the high mileage oil. Thanks, Jennifer

Jennifer P.  asked on  Mar 22, 2012

A:

Jennifer, Great question! The deal is for a $32.95 oil change. At $16 you save $16.95. You will get $16.95 OFF of any oil change. A valvoline Durablend Oil Change is priced at $49.95 - a groupon customer would pay tax on original amount with supllies. A Maxlife Oil Change (high mileage) is also $49.95 and a groupon customer would pay only $33.00 plus tax and suoplies. Tax would be $3.40 and supplies are $2.41. Sooooo on a high mileage oil change your out of pocket would be $55.76. With the groupon deal you would pay $16.95 less than that - $38.81. You always save $16.95 of value. Call Janet or Sherry at 513-662-6696 for any questions. Thanks, Mark Greve Owner

Keep in good contact with us and we should be able to accomadate your car's schedules over that 6 months if necessary. We look forward to serving you.

Q:

It says service is non transferable - if I purchased the 3 option could I bring in my car as well as my husband's? what other fees are involved? Thank you

Ellen S.  asked on  Mar 22, 2012

A:

Great questions! Any person or car at that address is cool with us. There are taxes and supply fees. These usually add up to $4.06 on a regular oil change. Thanks for your email! Mark

Mark G.  from  Merchant  replied on  Mar 22, 2012

Q:

You offer $30 for three standard oil changes, but I see also that I must use the promotional value in 1 visit. Do I need to bring in all three cars at one time?

Bill B.  asked on  Mar 22, 2012

A:

Heck No Bill! Jim's Auto Clinic is all about common sense. Group On used that verbage not us. As far as time goes the deal last 6 months. Janet and Sherry will make sure that you are able to use groupon purchase over that time as long as you keep good contact with us. We are a large neighborhood family run garage. We are very easy to talk to. We are happy that you will consider us your trusted mechanics. Please call Janet at 513-662-6696 for further details. We are excited to see you as soon as possible. Thanks, Mark Greve Owner
