Too bad no vehicle in existence seems to qualify for their Standard Oil Change.

Mr lube is by far the worst oil change company in the country. Have never gone there and not had bogus charges added to my bill.

Had a friend went there to change oil, they talk him into the more expensive oil. As well, asked them to change a head light which he bought it elsewhere, they want to charge him $60 to change it. lol

Makes sense, seeing as Jim Treliving has a stake in both Mr. Lube and Boston Pizza, by far the worst pizza restaurant in the country. Coincidence?

Mr.lube is a perfect oil change spot as most mechanics don't really want to deal with your oil unless they are doing extra services at the same time. I used to work at Mr.Lube, they upsell you like crazy but for a simple oil change it's awesome to go in and out in 15 mins. Even without a coupon...

I'd rather clap my genitals against a brick wall for 4 hours straight than go to Mr.Lube for an oil change....

This thread make me to watch it again
When you trust someone else to take care of your car, can you trust that they're not taking you for a ride?

This week, our undercover investigation reveals ripoffs at a popular oil change chain. We're going in for the advertised $19.99 oil change, but you won't believe the charges we end up with. And did they even do the work? We go up on the hoist to show you what’s really going down at these oil change shops.

There are better and cheaper places to go without having to deal with this hassle.

Pro Lube in Durham is $26.99 for a standard oil change, In and out in 15 mins, the guy barely wants to even talk to me, so no worries about upselling.

My element is $26.99, My escape is $1 more cause it uses a bit more oil
I don't fail, I succeed at finding what doesn't work

Make sure you have oil in your car before leaving CT after a so called old change. I know a few people with scary stories from CT. They drain old and forget to fill. Forget to screw back oil cap, and you lose it once you start driving. And my father in law went in a few years ago for a season tire change, and they overtorqued one of the lug nuts, and snapped the bolt. Guess what, they never said anything, and left the car in parking lot. When he confronted them when he went to his car after paying, and noticed a missing nut, the mechanic said "oh ya.. It snapped, but we don't have any replacements, you should go to the dealer and get one"... Really......

CT garage service, no thanks. I'm sure there are some properly run shops out there, but unfortunately, way too many that are not.

My father had issue with CT after his car wouldn't start one morning; thankfully he was just staying just a couple hundred feet from a CT and he got help to push it into their lot-- I suspected it could be his crank sensor and told him-- they plugged in their ODB II code reader and it was confirmed-- that cost $90.00 diagnostic fee (lol) and out the door was around $300---now a month or so later car quits again but far from a shop so my brother-and-law troubleshoot what is could be for almost a week (off and on)-- they thought it couldn't be sensor so never checked initially---finally decided to look at it as nothing else seemed to work-- turns out it wasn't tightened properly and now has been fine for over a year. Never again!! And I bought him a cheap ODB II code reader--and me a higher-end Autel MaxiCheck Pro unit. No more $90.00 diagnostic BS! And no more CT service!
