Fast, efficient, and friendly, that's what I like best about Berkshire. Their prices are mid-range, not getting any deals but you're not gonna get ripped off either.
They are one of the old guard who insist on the 3 month/3,000 mile oil change policy, which is not accurate anymore. Then, the service sticker they put on my window after my latest oil change said to come back in 3 months or *2,000* miles. Guys, come on. Even my service manual says 7,500 miles.
Hi Dillanger. Thank you for your review. We always appreciate our customers taking time out of their schedule to lets us know how we are doing. As for the 3,000 mile intervals, it is deeper than just changing oil at 3,000 miles, most car will go 10,000 miles between oil changes. There are 2 reasons why we put the stickers at 3000 miles. The 1st is that we have come to realize customers are so busy with their schedules that they usually show up at 5-7000 miles for their oil changes. If we were to put 5-7000 miles between oil changes then customers would probably come in at 10-12,000 miles. They are just typically late. The 2nd reason is that we like to open the hoods of cars between 3-5000 miles just to see if anything needs attention. Waiting past 5000 miles or more before opening a customers hood may cause us to miss a failing or broken part which can lead to a breakdown. It's just a preventive way to insure we catch things before they happen. This also goes for looking over the rest of the car like the brakes. I hope this clarifies things. Jim
